quote: Yes, you are. Borrowing 18 million from the academic fund? AYSM?
Guess how much each student at the U of A pays into the athletic department? Not a dime.
We are not borrowing, the AD is not giving 6 millions a year like they have for the last 10 years, instead, we are using that money for AD operating expenses and the coaches money is coming straight from the boosters.

But what coach will come close to being a Saban-type hire? I can only think of three coaches who will be Saban-type hires: Pete Carroll, Urban Meyer, and Jim Harbaugh. All of those coaches seem to be very happy where they're at and are having a lot of success at their current jobs. Saban was floundering with the Dolphins and there were long-standing rumors that his wife desperately wanted out of Miami.
