This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Here's how they do it by Domer84
I wondered also how large state universities, screaming for funds to educate the masses, could justify spending eight million dollars on a football coach. It turns out,the University doesn't pay that amount.
These state schools have an approved amount set aside for coaches salaries, say $2 million. The rest is paid by the booster clubs who agree to come up with the money to get the coach they want. At least that is the way it works down south but I assume that is what the "M Club" does at Michigan. This way, the administrators in the ivory towers can say that they aren't using desperately needed school money to fund football. And the boosters retain a lot of control over the program.
