Really, this is close to perfect.
With the federal government about to write $1.9 trillion worth of checks — some of which will even reach the pockets of the poor souls who need them most after nearly a year of financial suffering due to the coronavirus pandemic — perhaps discovering that the University of Tennessee football program is going to pay one Kevin Steele close to $900,000 NOT TO WORK isn’t that big a deal.
So even if I can’t wait to read Steele’s upcoming book “How to Become an (Almost) Millionaire in Seven Short Weeks While Doing Nothing,” I suppose we’re all supposed to just shrug this off as the cost of doing business when you’ve been as bad at business as UT football has the past decade or so.
$900,000 for seven weeks of NOTHING?
The only thing missing is a crack about that cryptic comment from UT’s head honcho about the SEC providing financial help. But I’m just quibbling.
