Did Orange Bowl Committee Violate Its Charitable Tax-Exempt Status?

Speaking of regulating charities, the Chronicle of Higher Education reports that Playoff PAC, a group that opposes the Bowl Championship Series, filed a complaint with the IRS alleging that the Committee improperly funded a Caribbean cruise for athletic directors, conference commissioners, and spouses.  (Full disclosure:  I am of Of Counsel with the firm that filed the complaint on behalf of Playoff PAC.)  The complaint follows an earlier complaint critical of three of the BCS Bowl committees, including the Orange Bowl Committee.
