I looked this up this evening, I was interested. Nick Saban recently signed a contract extension that keeps him at the University of Alabama through at least 2014. His salaries;
2008 - 3.75 Million
2009 - 3.9 Million
2010 - 4.1 Million
2011 - 4.15 Million
2012-2014 - 4.2 Million
That's dollars per year,
Why doesn't the Univesity of Alabama have a soccer team for men or women? Or a Men's Volleyball team? Or Wresling? Or Field Hockey?
Alabama certainly has a fine football team, and one hell of a coach. But it seems unfair to me that a school can allow so much money to be spent on a football coach while ignoring sports like soccer. I think dumping money into a football program is fine, so long as there is a trickle down through the athletic department. It looks lacking here.
Like I said, I think it's a fair quetion.
