    My point is....a start-up that only has a few thousand students and not a lot of money was able to match an SEC defensive coordinator salary. Today when some coordinators are making seven figures that's not happening. Times have changed.

    No one is here is saying we shouldn't at least try to get Houston, we're just saying if programs like ECU or richer want him we won't be able to get him, and that has to do with the realities of college football in the '10s, not changing perspective of the program by the fans.

    On another note....does anyone know how much money Everett Withers makes at Texas State? Texas State also poached a coach from JMU as I recall...
    Hey TK! Change the culture back!

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    No, when you are proven FBS coach or P5 coordinator they dont. Bohl is the best coach in FCS since PJ and did not land a major job just a decent paycheck. His accomplishments at NDSU are rare. If Houston repeats the most prolific run in the history of the FCS than yes he is probably worth 900K.

    Houston is probably on track to earn a sizable income with a quality team. GS may have lost its abilities to hire his services. Currently we aren't' even close to a quality team.

    I think money had very little to do with Erk coming to Ga Southern. He wanted to see what he could build and thank goodness he did.

    Precisely. If only we could find another rare breed that actually wants to live in Statesboro.

If you feel that way, and I do, and I think our players feel that way, then losing has got to be about the worst thing that can happen to you." Erk Russell

    I'm gonna watch some of that game on ESPN3 today. I haven't seen much of them but if he can win at The Citadel....that's pretty impressive.
