The Texas A&M coaching issue is creating incredible upward pressure on coaching salaries. LSU just had to give a huge raise to Aranda, to keep him away from A&M. $2 mil per year, 4 yr guarantee for a coordinator.

We (Tulane) need to get fundraising, and get that Football operations center built.

Between facilities, and coaching salaries - keep up with the Jones’s baby...

Or there needs to be a slowdown in spending in college athletics. The current pace is not sustainable and I see a lot of state governments being forced to skip some of the amenities and upgrades especially as ticket sales declineand TV packages slim down.

That is virtually impossible without P5 money.

This is the logical answer, but "logical" and "NCAA athletics" have not mutually coexisted in a long time.

It also shows that the admins and power brokers that were up arms in about the new tax law 'doom and gloom 'were full of it. If that was the case and now they go out and pay a DC this salary they are either lying or grossly incompetent.

As we get older we all want to believe that things can't sustain and have to change. Unfortunately that's not usually how it turns out. LSU athletics fully supports itself through TV money, all the revenue off of tickets, merchandise and most importantly TAF donations. For some time they have been giving the school several million dollars a year. So are they the exception of the P5 schools or are they just one of many that do this ? As for Aranda Orgeron took a much lower salary so they could hire top flight assistants. Orgeron makes $3.5 million and Aranda will get $2.5 million.

Ummmm....LoSer-U administration. Lazy river, anyone? While they may or may not be lying, I think we can take "grossly incompetent" and LoSer-U as understood.... :mrgreen:

Schools at that level are as profitable as they want to be.

I believe lsu is one of only a few athletic programs that actually makes money each year. I’m basing that off a report from about 5 years ago so I don’t know how the landscape looks now.

A lot of that is an accounting trick. I think there were only two true programs that were in the black (again from a few years ago) Texas and Ohio State.
