Realtor friend says Beard is in Austin today buying Nick Saban's house.

He's gonna be in for sticker shock when he has to drop $1M on a 1600 sq ft fixer upper with foundation problems to be within 30 minutes of campus.

Notsureifserious.gif. I think you are conflating revenue generating sports and their specific bank of donors with non revenue generating sports and theirs.

LMAO.  If the BOR and Hartzell say we can afford $7M annual, we can afford $7M annual.  I'm not asking questions.  

I love it when Texas fans get fussy about coaching salaries.  They are completely inconsequential.  Pay 'em, don't pay 'em, I don't care, but it's not causing my daughter's tuition to jump if we throw money at Chris Beard.  It's just not.

Gagreed.

Also love it when people say they're being paid X to underachieve.  As if it would somehow be better if they were paid X/2 or X/3, or even X/10.

He was interested in the Marquette gig; not sure if he said no then they went to Shaka or if they went to Shaka instead of him, but they were talking.

If that was the case, the Marquette AD will likely find an angry mob at his door in a few years.

PM had to have turned them down if they went with Shaka so quickly.

One wonders if Shaka can grow into a bigtime coaching job.  Have the same wonder about Herman.  I have a suspicion that Herman may figure it out, but he may also have a drinking problem that holds the key to him figuring it out.

Yup.

CDC went to the BOR and has asked for and gotten:

Half a million per for a softball coach
Half a million per for a track coach
Almost 2 million per for a WBB coach

I don't think he's scared to go ask them for $6-7m for Beard.

From my Kentucky buddy in DFW

“Rumors are picking up steam in UK chats about Cal to Texas. Saying it’s a real possibility if Texas is willing to spend that much on a basketball coach. They’ve got the money, I’m sure!”

If Cal wants to leave, no buyout.

So someone posted that tweet on a UK board and they are talking about it?  Do not want.

If we paid Beard a couple hundred thousand more than Sark, I'd be not surprised.

We'd be paying almost double Sark's salary if we wanted Cal.  He's at what, $8.5 million?  I'd be VERY surprised if Texas did such a thing.

Texas basketball would go from sympathetic figure( rare I know,) to very hateable almost instantly.

Would be fun though, from a Big XII perspective.

How do rumors like calipari to Texas get started and believed to keep getting posted elsewhere? Haha. There’s a 0% chance we hire calipari. 

Kentucky fans who want cal gone because he hasn’t brought them the 7 NCs ala Alabama football like they think they deserve.

He make 9 mill a year per my google search. It would take 10+ easy to get him here and that won’t happen.
