    Seems fair. Grossly overpaid, but fair considering that's the current market rate.

    The two contract pages from LC’s post above.

    “The University will pay 60% of the guaranteed compensation directly to Sark Enterprises, Inc. on a bi-monthly basis and %40 for base salary on a monthly basis.”

    really loved the Cowboys back then! my all-time favorite team. brings back memories.
    In baseball that would not count as a catch.
    Personally, if they had said that was a drop I would have not argued very hard but glad they called it a catch.
    hmmm, my next thought is would Worthy make the extra effort to get his hands on the ball like Johnson did.

    No, Jumbo was grossly overpaid being guaranteed a giant salary before he stepped foot on campus as the coach. Sark earned his fair market value and is worth every penny based on the results, popularity and revenue being generated by the program. His salary is chump change in comparison.

    All I am saying is I think the whole market is way overinflated, not that Sark isn't worth the money given what he has accomplished in three years with a "prove it" type salary.

    I get it. My brain still lives in the world when head coaches made $400-$500k a year. It's insane, but there's so much money on the line for the school they have to pay it.

    The winner of the nubb canes game was going to be voted #1. We don't like it but it's true. The following March, 60 days later , *Brad Sham at krld radio/ Dallas did a poll of the poll voters he personally knew, asked who they would vote #1 if Texas had won. Miami was by and far the winner of that poll. He received answers from about half the voters

    It wouldn't have been the first or tenth time an undefeated team got hosed.

    * sham hated texas, hated fielding calls from Horn fans about a fumbled punt being the reason we didn't win a natty. The person doing the actual calling iirc was either art Haines or chuck Cooperstein in their younger days

    Run,

    I don't like to think about that game. I was a few years away from graduating HS. That memory is compounded by my total disgust and "dislike" for Kenny Hatfield, who returned the punt for the TD, and later coached the dirtiest team I have ever seen in Memorial Stadium

    I need to figure out a way to be a "bestie" of Coach Sark. Then could go to all the games and maybe even watch from a suite. :headbang:

    Also, that loss arguably cost Colt the Heisman - am I remembering that year correctly? Didn’t Sam Bradford win it in 2008? (Sort of related, while pondering history … I remain pissed off that Colt and VY did not win. Sad, too, that Roosevelt Leaks might have been our first Heisman, if not for his injury.)

    Yes that was Colt’s best year by far. Catastrophic loss.

    It's arguable that Bradford outplayed Colt in that game, but the kicker was how they both performed against Tech. Bradford put up a QBR of 94.5 that day, and didn't even play in the 4th quarter.
