how much money is wasted on other projects at LSU? what about previous coaching hires that did not produce a quality product on the field or court? 2.5m to turn around the lady tigers could be huge and lil Kim has a pretty good track record.

Who is on the horny patrol? Does anybody know if women’s basketball makes enough money to pay this salary? They may need to make the hot dogs longer.

I’m guessing they ain’t real. But who cares. They’re big and look like fun!

That is a lot of money- especially for a sport that will never make any money.

There is a very good change that if they win a national championship in women's basketball that LSU will get at least half of that 2.5 million salary back to them.

Three million a year for a women’s basketball coach hahahaha

I have to agree. I am sure this was a hire to appease the Title IX crowd. LSU lost 4 million in Womens Basketball last year and will now add a 2.5 ridiculous salary to the overhead. Insanity.

The country's current climate suggest the mentality of some liberals will be that LSU is racist for paying KM $1.5M more than NF. We have a no accountability culture
