The sad part is that when the salary information came out it was reported that the LSU Women's Basketball Coach makes $700,000 annually. That is only $50,000 less than PM. SERIOUSLY??? That is 100% ridiculous.

I'm sure no tiger fan has ever gotten a job offer with the sole intention at getting a raise at their current position. Give me a break.
