  1. holy crap...I should've gone into coaching

  2. It's one way to keep your coaching staff intact, but where is this money thing gonna end? It's gotten absurd to say the least and IMO, ruining the sport of college football.

  3. Pressure, pressure, pressure.
    It is no longer collegiate sports.
    It is what it is, professionals.
    Who dares to try stopping it?
