    Interesting stat. I never thought about it that way. I guess the moral of the story is “Invest wisely”.

    Nick Saban was the best deal anybody in Alabama ever made, for Alabama.

    If da Kirbster turns out to be half that good we will be pretty darn happy. Well, most of us.

    Looks like a very average bunch of teams not coached by Saban no matter how much the other coaches make.


  4. Wait…wouldn’t losses drive the average up? If a 1-11 coach made $1M a year his average would be $1M. I think this is a dumb way to look at it. Why not figure the average per game then add up the losses. That’s your money wasted stat.

    …….anyone agree with me that Muschamp did a pretty damn good job this season? Mason and Stoops outperformed expectations, but it’s only because they themselves made them so low to begin with. Meanwhile, Boom inherited a smoldering, talentless crater in Columbia and squeezed a bowl bid out of it. Good job, ya nut.

    Not so fast.

    Jon didn’t figure in the costs of the rent-a-wins and the box of condoms.

    Kirby was three plays from being first at $375,360 per win. He was also four plays away from being last at $1,251,200 per win. I can’t think of another team that had so many close games.
