Forbes magizene rates the most overpaid coaches in college.
Can you guess who they might be?
I haven't read the article, but my guess is Nick Saban tops it.
He's not even in the top 5.
I can't believe Charlie Weiss didn't make #1
Jim Tressell is the lowest paid coach? No way. OSU is so huge and famous university. Also, I am aware that he is a born again Christian. He is a truly GREAT coach!!
Rev. 22:20 -Amen!
Not "lowest" paid-- this is trying to rate the most overpaid and the most underpaid. It seems to be ranking in terms of $/win (dollars for each win).
Jim Tressel isn't underpaid. He slides by in an easy conference to be destroyed by a superior SEC champion. Ho-hum.
You misspelled his name -- replace the "b" with a "t" -- then you have it!
It is no surprise that Greg Robinson of Syracuse is near the top of the list. Actually, I am surprised - I thought he would have been # 1.
This year the Big East sportswriters have predicted that SU will come in last place. If they (notice, I cant say we) are lucky - they might win two non conference wins.
I have said over the past 3 years, GR is a great Assistant Coach, he is just a lousy head coach.
On this we agree! :thumbs:
He has turned me into an Auburn fan!
Me too, FoS.
I'm not an ESS EEE CEE football fan, or basketball fan for that matter, but if I have to choose between Bama and Auburn, then I say War Eagle.
We can only dream of wishing we could make that much!
I would say it is too early to tell. Give him a couple of seasons and then decide.
BTW, the Tide football program took in something like $54 million last season and netted $32 million. IMHO, paying the CEO of the program one-eighth of the net is not excessive.
Actually, Saban's "package" is close to $5 million a year, which includes a country club membership and two new vehicles each year.
College football is big business as we all know. The truth is, most of its 1-A head coaches are overpaid by the standard of most of us. I can't even begin to imagine how a man could spend $4 million a year!! Of course I know people who make that kind of money do not spend all of it, but wouldn't you like to try? Sure wish he as a tithing member of my church! :laugh:
The Syracuse Orange football team is now 0-2. They lost to Akron - the worse team in college Div I - well now, Akron is the second worse team:tonofbricks:
This Sat, SU will face Penn State this Sat. If Joe P is nice, than SU will only loose by 32 points - it will be a cold day in the Salt City!:wavey:
I think this is fair and my comment about Saban was unfair. I thought he made more money than he did.
