Selling the faculty on conference affiliation is important to Presidents.


Whether it has any affect on recruiting, performance, or fan interest, a University President has to keep his/her faculty happy in the age where athletics is such a large part of the University budget. The Perception that the faculty has of the academic standing of the peer members of the conference means a whole lot more than you think. Any ACC President will tell you that.
