Charlie.....

Charlie Strong is now the 7th highest paid football coach in the NCAA. Link


3.7 Million to play an ACC schedule.....no wonder he turned down rockytop.

That's a lot of money for what I would normally consider a mid-major level program....despite their inspired Sugar Bowl performance. I will be pulling for them to tear up the ACC though....assuming it survives the coming round of realignment.

Ok people do try to keep up. Let's stick to the important conferences. Namely the Mountain West. Yes sirs, and lady, Boise State after putting thumbscrews to the MWC management returned. Many of the changes in revenues that BSU forced through I think may benefit the conference in the long run. Should encourage the up and comers.

The MWC then turned and made San Diego State sweat. I believe there was hope- real or not- that maybe the MWC could pluck SMU, Houston or Tulsa (or all three) from the Big East.

The MWC now has 12 teams with the return of the wayward children. Ok Boise State, is only a recently adopted child, but we were still pretty fond of the tyke.

Now it is divided into two 6 team divisions--

The conference announced on Tuesday that the inaugural title game will be played on Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013, at the home of the highest-ranked division winner -- according to the BCS standings...

Mountain Division

Air Force
Boise State
Colorado State
New Mexico
Utah State
Wyoming

West Division

Fresno State
Hawaii
Nevada
San Diego State
San Jose State
UNLV

After three years of rapid membership changes, the Mountain West is left with arguably one of the strongest conferences in the "Group of Five" (Big East, Conference USA, MAC, MW, Sun Belt) and a championship game to draw extra interest and revenue. In the future playoff system beginning in 2014, the highest-ranked team from the Group of Five will be guaranteed a spot in one of the non-playoff access bowls.

With the strength of the teams above, a MW team is likely to be in the competition for that spot on an annual basis.

Dayum, that's some serious scrilla. They really want him to stay. Can't blame them, he's a hellava coach.

When MNF can schedule a team good enough to play them.
