i will believe it when coach starts eating three little debbie oatmeal pies for breakfast.
not at the time.
he had a lot of growing up to do, and i suspect he still does.
as i said, i understand the economics and i don't care.
personally, i find anyone working for a public university making millions ridiculous and contrary to the purpose of an institution of higher...
in 8 years the average increased 70%.
applying that to our situation, were he to still be coach in 2022 saban would be making $12 million a year.
when will it stop?
is there any number...
lost in this discussion is also the allegation that sexton sent word out to TX apparently right after the 2013 championship with the "only place he'd leave bama for" overture.
if that's true, it's...
annuities are insurance products.
perhaps schools should start paying for them...it's basically a deferred compensation plan.

that would essentially amount to a deferred compensation plan...
if he's asked, and IF he chooses to answer, I hope he answers truthfully and fully.
I don't look forward to a season of media digging up material to constantly hammer away at every week.
like I said, I just simply disagree.
true, it's a specialty profession, so is university professor.
nick sabama makes about 100x what a professor at Alabama makes.
I know that coach...
as my 10 year old says...whatever.
i will have to respectfully disagree.
the current pay average and the fact that it has increased 70% during some of the toughest economic times in our history is pretty outlandish.
yes...and i dared say that he was seriously considering it and you'd have thought i posted a youtube video of me throwing a sack of puppies into a tree shredder.
it's totally crazy.
my first year in grad school at bama ('95) i believe stallings made $750k a year and i think spurrier soon thereafter became the first coach making $1 million plus.
if that story is even 1/4 true it puts a big dent in the "saban never seriously considered leaving" stories.
