    Here is an interesting story about "money games".

    From the story.....
    Cincinnati at Arkansas

    Date: Sept. 3. Payment: $1.5 million

    Appalachian State at Texas A&M

    Date: Sept. 10. Payment: $1.5 million

    Brigham Young at Oregon

    Date: Sept. 17. Payment: $1.1 million

    SMU at Maryland

    Date: Sept. 17. Payment: $1.2 million

    Texas-San Antonio at Texas

    Date: Sept. 17. Payment: $1.52 million

    Louisiana-Lafayette at Florida State

    Date: Nov. 19. Payment: $1.4 million

    Western Kentucky at Auburn

    Date: Nov. 19. Payment: $1.9 million

    Think I saw where we are getting only $500,000 for playing Missouri. Oh well it's only money.

    We were getting nothing to play at Baylor (twice).

    Our former AD made this mess, not the current AD.

    It also highlights the privilege SEC schools assume for themselves. "Having 3 road games in September is very un-SEC-like, unacceptable..." Mizzou officials said. They also dissed MTSU in their comments.

    And on top of that we are getting $500K...wow. FCS schools with high-stepping bands command more payment than that. Of course, winning cures a lot of woes.

    Go Dawgs!

    The good news is, LA Tech doesn't need the money.

    I thought we were getting the discounted 2-for-1 deal for one of those games (you know, way down in the 500K range or something) and then for the other we were getting a home game.

    When Waco game #1 was cancelled, I had assumed it was the (discounted) money game and the other two games would just be the wash they were always going to be.

    We gave up a one-for-one (with a desirable opponent, even if probably a little tougher one than you'd want for game one with a new coach and in the same year you have to travel to Clemson) for a pretty small payout road game (against a much weaker opponent, but it's still an SEC team on the road).

    If Missouri was so desperate to not play @MTSU, you'd think we could have got more out of them.

    Not if one is trying to ingratiate himself to prospective employers in the profession as a "go along to get along" amiable type of chap.

    Mizzu: We're prepared to offer you $1.5MM
    TMac: How about let's make it $500K and you tell all the other P5 ADs how great it is to work with me?

    The only way the Baylor cluster was even close to a good deal was a guaranteed home game for us. There was never a chance of that happening.

    Thank you for reminding me of that. I keep forgetting that our entire budget is twice as much as Alabama pays one coach.

    Even if they were not desperate $500k is a joke. Ran into a Tech grad today, we talked about the game. I said well nobody knows what we really have. We might be great, we might be horrible. Nobody really knows. I think we will cover the 20.5. He said something about a big check. I asked what do you think we will get. He said at least 7 figures.

    Tech grad, lsu fan? Again, this cluster is on the golden political hire from NSU.
