Let's All Become College Football Coaches


According to the latest poll of College Football Coach salaries, it pays to be able to convince 17 year old boys to attend one University over others for the sake of their footballing.  These guys make serious boatloads of money.  Particularly the SEC Head coaches.  Once again Mack Brown and Nick Saban lead the way but it seems like these schools are beginning to realize the value that a top Football program can bring to the University so College Presidents are trying to woo top coaches for higher pay.   

It is a little surprising to see some of the coaches up near the top, like Iowa's Kirk Ferentz is #5 on the list bringing in almost $3.8m.  Newly DWI'd Gary Pinkel is #16 on the list cashing his checks to the tune of $2.7 last year.  While it seems like all the biggest salaries are reserved for coaches in the South East, this clearly does not translate to those leading Sun Belt conference Schools who along with the WAC and the MAC make up nearly all of the lowest salaried positions.  That said, it's still a pretty darn good living making over $200k in wherever schools like Eastern Michigan and Western Kentucky are.  

So the next time you see a head coach at one of these places get canned I think you'd all be doing humanity a favor by writing letters to that school's president urging them to hire yous truly as Head Football Coach.

Here is the full article if you want to see how much money they make for thinking about football all day and then spend the next few days wondering where you went wrong.

Big East Expansion Maps



As you've probably heard, the Big East is looking to build out it's current collection of Football playing teams to greater than the 5 they currently have on board for 2012.  That makes sense because just about every other Automatic Qualifying conference has five or more teams PER DIVISION.  

The current talks have tabbed the new potential targets as Navy, UCF, Houston, SMU, Air Force, BYU, and Boise St.  These are all solid additions to the "Big East." I'm afraid it won't be called the "Big East" any longer but I don't think anyone but Basketball fans will really miss that.  Besides, that ship sailed once Pitt and Syracuse decided to bail for the ACC last month.  These 12 teams are all quality teams with lots of Football pride, many of whom seem to be on the verge of breaking into that next level of football elite too.  



Boise, Rutgers, Houston, both UCF and USF all have great talent and a recent history of competing at a very high level and a few bounces (or kicks in Boise's case) the other way and these teams are competing in BCS bowls.  With an enhanced recruiting profile in Florida, Texas, and the West Coast some of the schools with great football history and a lot of pride could really up their game.  This might end up working out for the best.

To further that Nationwide profile and even appease some of those Basketball fans I thought about a few more schools that could be added across all sports and came up with Eastern Carolina, Southern Miss, UNLV, and San Diego State.  All four schools have unique locations that further round out the "Big East" profile and have very competitive programs already in place.  This would also expand the conference to a full 16 teams divided into East and West divisions separated by the Mississippi River (well USM is just slightly East of it but I think we can overlook that for our purposes).


This has the makings of a conference that can compete for recruits in both Football and Basketball in every market and ultimately be competitive with anyone.  Hopefully the same people that designed the demise of the current Big East realize the potential they have with my newly imagined "Big East."  Because they are the same people in charge of engineering the future of the Conference they destroyed.  My fingers are crossed.
