They dropped Swimming (and eventually Diving) due to unwillingness

to put money into a new facility. What is their excuse for this? Save $2 million annually. Dabo Swinney makes $9.3 million. Take a $2 million salary reduction and become a hero to hundreds if not thousands - and preserve a deserving program. Only 2 years ago, Dabo's salary was $8 million annually. I think he could "survive" on $7+ million / year. Or one of his primary assistants might be willing to take over the program for this salary (or significantly less).

It's just appalling.
