Are you guys seriously arguing that coaches pay should be essentially on commission? If they don't pay competitive salaries, they run the risk of someone hiring the coach away. LSU made Nick Saban the 3rd highest paid coach in CFB when he was hired after the 99 season when he finsished 2nd in the big 10, his best year by far. Clearly Freeze and sumlin have their programs headed in the right direction.
