It's been a while since someone has gotten a Pie In The Face award so I think it's time to give another pie. The award goes to North Carolina AD Dick Baddour who recently sweetened North Carolina head coach Butch Davis' contract deal by almost $300,000. This is the same Butch Davis who is in his first year at UNC earning $2.1 million a year. So why the increase? Because there was the faintest of speculation that Davis might be interested in going to Arkansas. And what was the record of UNC? An awe inspiring 4-8. This is a great example of the lunacy that is going on in college football today. University presidents and ADs are throwing money at coaches who have mediocre records and negotiating obscene contracts.
