Before anybody thinks he doesn't deserve to the highest paid SEC coach, tell me who is better than him in the conference?
Obviously who's better is subjective. I think the only guy you could argue is maybe Vandy's coach. PM has a national title and has been to the CWS (with LSU) one more time than Vandy. However, I don't think anybody would argue that LSU's baseball tradition and emphasis on success is far greater that Vanderbilt's. Accomplishments alone will say PM. But if you look at the situations both coaches were brought into, one could argue that Vandy's coach might be doing a better job than PM.
