SUNY Binghamton Students…

… are a mite pissed. With the university’s sports-mad president. Because of the recent report on SUNY’s excruciatingly corrupt athletics program. (Background here.)

[President Lois DeFleur was] conveniently out of town when the audit results were released. The hypocrisy is sickening, especially coming from the woman who has continuously touted our claim as the Premier Public University of the Northeast. All the while, she has been privately putting academics second to her NCAA dreams.

And now, after dragging this school through the mud on her quest to D-1 fame, DeFleur is leaving the premises and not looking back, leaving us to deal with the mess.

With all due respect Ms. President, we’ve been taught that it’s honorable to own up to your mistakes, not set up others to take the fall and cover your own ass. Your skeletons are coming out of your airplane hangar, and if you have any respect for the school you’ve claimed to love for the past 20 years, you should show your commitment by sticking around to help us salvage this school and its reputation.

    Dear student editors,

    When bad administrators slink off, it is a bad idea to get in their way. Offer to help carry their stuff out to the U-Haul. Don’t help with shredding, though–the IRS may want those documents.

    Actually, they appear to be more nonchalant than peed off: http://www.pressconnects.com/article/20100212/NEWS01/2120379/1116/news/Preferential+treatment+for+athletes+not+surprising+or+disturbing++Binghamton+University+students+say
