    I want him to win out and then go to a bowl where his team completely smacks some big program in the mouth. In order for him to be successful here, his team is going to have to out hustle and out work those they play against.

    Yes, they were only talking about football players. From what I gather, it was all football players not just scholarship football players. The University of Texas did a study that concluded their 85 scholarship football players had a fair market value of over $670,000 per year. Yes, the money would have to be spread to all scholarship athletes both male and female. However, one must really look at everything. John Cook signed a contract a year ago making him Nebraska's highest paid women's coach. His base salary is $600,000. We are potentially looking at paying a football coach nearly 10 times that amount. The B1G invited us into their conference because of football. Football is where the money is at. The colleges make up the NCAA, and the NCAA makes up the rules. They don't want those risking their health and life to share in the riches. They want to keep all the money and then use it to buy the best coach. I don't know much about how much money high school football coaches get paid. I highly doubt there's a huge pay difference between coach A who's won five state titles and coach B who has yet to win a state title. High school football and college football are similar in that they both involve amateur athletes. Yet, there's also a huge difference. Some college football coaches are paid more than the highest paid NFL coach who coaches paid professional athletes. Personally, I think it's wrong for colleges to use the NCAA as a shield for their agenda. John Cook is as good as any coach in their respective sport, yet he makes a fraction of what the top college football coaches and men's basketball coaches make. By properly compensating college athletes for what they bring into the school, it might just make the playing field a little more level.

    It's their fair market value. It isn't what they're receiving from the school. Johnny Football had a fair market value of $547,000 per year while at A&M. This was his value to A&M. It isn't what he was receiving in benefits.
  4. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    What benefits? You think they're receiving 1.25 million in benefits over their college career?
  5. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    Why lowball them? The March survey, from the National College Players Association and Drexel University, said that the projected fair market value of the average college football player is $178,000 per year from 2011 to 2015. With as fast as things change, it's probably over a quarter million by now. With the average college football player being in a program four to five years, let's just call it a cool million.

    Probably the same ones that pay for the free tuition for those on full ride academic scholarships.
  7. Blow Your Mind...or not.

    I often wonder who was available back then that we could have hired instead of TO? TO inherited a team that had won two NCs in the three years before he became HC. TO didn't even win his first outright conference championship until year nine. Let that sink in for a minute. It seems we all like to play the who could we have got back in 97/98. Why don't we ever play who could we have got back in 72/73? How many NCs might we have built up by now with a different hire?

    One way or another, they tend to overlap. Who makes up the NCAA? Colleges, universities athletic conferences and other affiliated organizations are NCAA members. These members help set up the rules. Who pays the coaches? The colleges do. Why do you suppose college athletes don't get paid? Who is the biggest beneficiary of college athletes not getting paid? Are we connecting any dots here yet? The colleges are collecting all the money. They dole out a small portion to the coach while keeping the rest. It's of little wonder why Nick Saban is being paid more money per year than the highest paid NFL coach (Pete Carroll). In fact, there are two college coaches paid more than the highest paid NFL coach. Could it be because in the NFL the money has to be distributed to the players? When you say the players aren't being forced to do this, I'm not sure if you are serious. Of course the players are being forced to do this. How is a player ever to make a NFL roster unless they go through the motions of playing college ball? The NFL has already catered to the NCAA setting up a rule that a player has to be three years removed from high school before they are eligible to enter the draft. If they ever want to get paid to play, they are essentially forced to do this.

    If the players were getting paid, I wouldn't have a problem with the college coaches salaries. However, this isn't the case. I don't have any problem with what NFL coaches or players get paid. They are providing entertainment much like an actor or tv host. However, college is different. The players are the ones putting their lives and health at risk while the coaches and the school get all of the money.
  10. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    I have a problem with what college coaches are paid. A full ride scholarship has a value of what? It's a small pittance compared to what college football coaches are making. Colleges and coaches are reaping huge rewards while amateur athletes are out there risking their health. Other college students can and do receive full ride academic scholarships. Yet, they have the ability to get a job for spending money while scholarship athletes do not. Heck, a scholarship athlete can't even trade free gifts they received at a bowl game for tattoos without getting into trouble.
  11. I would ask him why at Oregon State he was willing to take play calling duties away from Langsdorf but here he was unwilling to do it.
  12. Miami as a model moving forward

    I'm sure you were saying the same thing about Riley last year when we were in the top 10. Shouldn't we let the season play out first? Richt is similar to Mack Brown. He gets great recruits and then does very little with them. How do you suppose a coach like that would do at Nebraska? It's one thing to post a losing season. It's completely another doing it with a team composed of top 15 recruiting classes.

    Why? Because we did such a bang up job in 03' and 07'? From everything I've ever been told about then when I was more connected with the program, there wasn't going to be a legitimate national search. Byrne wanted to offer the job to Bob Stoops, TO pulled rank, and the rest is history. We all know Stoops went on to have a great career at OU. However, I have always wondered if he'd have been successful here. The reason Bob Stoops left KState and Snyder for the exact same job at Florida and Spurrier was because he hated the long hours Snyder expected out of his assistants. At Florida, the hours were short and the tee times were a many. While his work ethic worked at OU with talent rich Texas at his feet, I question if it would have worked here. I've always felt a coach like Snyder would have far better success here than a coach like Spurrier.

    I can't think Florida is going to heavily pursue Charlie Strong. While I think he's a good coach, his time at Texas is going to keep major programs away from him for a while.

    In my lifetime, Bo would probably come the closest.
