That should cover the cost of new porto-potties at the football stadium
$350,000 for the buy out? Previous AD must have thought Miles wasn't going to leave anytime soon, or didn't really care if he did.
did those idiots finally realize they are not getting 3.5 million?
That'll cover about 2/3 of next year's Goat athletic budget.
We've already seen Baylor's rendering. Can't fool me.
Oh great, now I gotta take a dump.
Well, the CSU fanbase fellates Nebraska enough that Nebraska probably figured they should pay for it at some point. I love that CSU's adopted favorite Big Kid school bent them over.
A toilet is a toilet ............
Lol. Don't worry, "the next coaches' buy out will be in the millions."
not always a good thing....
The chances of a buy-out being in the millions is 0%
I will go a step further and say it is never a good thing for CSU. In that scenario, there are two detrimental outcomes:
1. You limit the pool of coaching candidates because an AD wants to play hardball with contract details.
2. You expose the school to unnecessary risk if the coach flops.
Liked his presser, seems like a good guy but questionable fit. a pair of CU alums (one Colorado one Creighton) had me rolling with this though.
Ahhh leeeeidtur. Lol
Too funny of a picture of kNUBBCTM.
$350,000 means completely different things to CSU and kNU, for the corn they make that money at a coaches luncheon in North Platte, for CSU that is the payout for a bodybag road game where they take a loss for a paycheck. Their fans may dream of million dollar buyouts but the AD is very happy to get the 350 grand without having to fight over it. Their fans are always dreaming of the million dollar magic money tree that is going to make them relevant, if it isn't a coaches buyout it is the courts giving them a share of BCS money or being invited to join the Big XII or some mystery donor stepping up and being their version of Phil Knight. The funny thing is that the last time they had a major donor step up with the Stryker money they got all excited and the football program has steadily gone downhill since the donation.
Also Miles knew what he was doing at CSU. He wasn't going to sign a contract with an outragious buyout in it because he knew that if things went the way he wanted he would be using that buyout. There aren't many quality coaches out there who look on a program like CSU as their dream destination, it is a steppingstone and to get a good coach they have to give a contract that makes moving up at least reasonable if not easy.
It will be very interesting to see what kind of buyout is in the next contract and who they manage to get to agree to it.
What I've found interesting is that every ex-CSU coach I've heard interviewed has raved about his time there. Talked about the great quality of life and what a great place it was to raise a family. It kind of hit home for me how great the state of Colorado is compared to most other places in this country. And Ft. Collins is a pretty great town. I just wish they didn't have such a strange fan culture. Hatred of CU and delusions of grandeur seem to drive it. I end up cheering against them even though I'd like to cheer for them most of the time.
I had the misfortune of a job transfer there from about 2 1/2 years. It is a great place to live, but I had a very hard time enduring the CSU fandom in the office and the CU hate. I got my Buff fix by driving to Boulder for my basketball fix.
Should have just posted the all time records on your door.
Fort Collins reminds me of a retirement community. **** that town.
