    Leach tops the list.

    That list must stop at a certain salary threshold. MM would have been in the mix at one win constituting his entire paycheck, according to their methodology.

    The list, if I'm remembering the same one, used a 3 year minimum at current job so that eliminated us from it

    I was cringing while reading, waiting for MM's name to come up

    How long has Fedora been at UNC? I figured he'd do better but it might be the University as a whole instead of him with all the crap going on.

    I am surprised someone is actually calling out Leach. Long overdue.

    MM ranks 50th on the FBS pay from the university (as of 2014). Yes, there are some coaches with lesser salaries than him that have accomplished infinitely more than he has, but that's a case of them being vastly underpaid than MM being overpaid. He's in the bottom 10 of P5 coaches in terms of salaries, so what's the big deal?

    No. No it's not. Mike Leach is a treasure to be cherished. We're all better off with him in the conference. Fat little girlfriends and salad bar companies everywhere are happy with him where he is. And shed builders.

    You need to lighten up, Francis. The guy is a gold mine of great quotes. I really don't care if he can coach or not. Whatever WSU is paying him, it's worth it. I'm good about spending other peoples money for my benefit.

    Technically, that's communism. But whatever.

    That's not what he meant!





    What he really meant was that he favors nationalizing Dillards for the common good.

    I'm with sacky on this one. Leach is a football treasure that does nothing but improve the entertainment value of the conference. I am also very happy he's not on our sideline. Those are not contradictory statements.
