There's a campaign- but maybe more than just one

Campaigns to oust might be driven by multiple and conflicting interests and where does athletics figure in?:

Many on UC Berkeley faculty don’t want leader to linger

Remember as you read that- SF Chronicle started the summer with articles on Dirks and Cal Athletics football issues,

Critics question Cal’s probe into football coach’s actions

http://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/article/Critics-question-Cal-s-probe-into-football-8333108.php

followed by drum beats(?)   from other columns there about the Chancellor housing renovations, staff issues, travel questions...

And then check out this post:

Chancellor Nicholas Dirks resigns: What it means for Cal athletics

--As you read  some of these articles...
The strangest thing, : some UC  folks seem to think the UCOP initiated  investigation can just be brought to a halt or quietly reported internally,  handled somehow going forward with a Cal interim  leadership--as though UC still has not learned from that type of handling  "looking bad" in recent and older Title IX and Whistleblower cases-- surreal.
It would seem there has to be reporting of the findings just as in Katehi, right?
