Want to know what is wrong with college football? It is the absurd salaries paid to coaches and the athletic directors who bend over and take it. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has some interesting facts on the salaries of ACC and SEC coaches.
How's this one for starters? Gator head coach Urban Meyer makes $3,487,038 and yet there is a provision in his contract that provides $100,000 per year “to assist in educational expenses for his family.” You have to be kidding me.
And closer to home, when Bobby Bowden leaves Florida State, unless it is for violating his contract, he will receive a $1 million bonus. What recession?
