On their show today, Scott Van Pelt and Ryan Russillio just roasted Louisville for paying $4 million to Charlie Strong. As they said, if Charlie Strong is worth $4 million, then Nick Saban should ask for $10 million. They called it "insane".
Strong would be the third highest paid coach in the SEC behind only Saban and Miles (and only because Miles just got a raise). All that for a football coach at a basketball school, in a basketball state playing in a basketball conference. It pays to be in the right place at the right time. Crazy man, just crazy.
not for long..better believe Saban and Miles have already asked for raises. Muschamp too.
On every payday from now on, Charlie will sing the praises of the University of Tennessee. Hell, he might even be singing "Rocky Top."
He should have been given 4 million from Tennessee since the 3.7 mill offer wasn't enough

Saban and Miles are the only coaches in the SEC who earn more than Strong. Think about that. Think about what Spurrier and Richt have accomplished and then this guy gets $4 million to coach at at place with worse facilities than Vanderbilt. It's comical.
I wonder what the next conversation between Pitino and Jurich will be like.
I hear you, but consider that pretty soon, considering the TV money, college coaches of the best programs will make as much as the top NFL coaches.
Wouldn't have made a difference...I'm increasingly convinced that the bigger back story w/all these NO's is Cheek and his inept leadership. FIRE Cheek & get the acedemic issues addressed.
exactly and why is everyone ripping Hart for not being the idiot here? I am glad we are not paying Strong $4M per year. that is stupid. way over valued and yes he used us to get that. but why does that make Hart the idiot? don't get that...
Says the guy who's never seen our facilities in person. Squeezing 100k fatasses into a bleacher-filled eyesore does not equal a great stadium. Rage on.
LOL Oh if you only knew how jealous you sounded right there...
UT facilities > UL facilities.
Game over, try again.
im glad louisville is paying for his service and not us...blessing for tenn
and just think they cant sale any games out..what's there seating 60-k
better them and us...i know its easy to say that now...but why wouldnt
tenn..hart..cheek raise a couple more million and get abig name coach?
to bad p-manning is still playing ball..would love to see him come back and coach
the vols..quarterbacks seem to me make very good coaches and with his
talent ..he would be as good coach as player..go vols..keep the faith guy's
just maybe just maybe they throw the check book at gruden.
Really? So you guys grossly overpaid and kept the coach. Name calling, though? Seriously? I'm not going to say anything about your stadium named after pizza, because I've never seen it. People who are fans of programs all over the country plan trips to see our "eyesore" and leave impressed. Never heard that about UofL's field.
Just curious, when was the last time your stadium was voted the best in the country for game day experience? Top 10? Honorable Mention?
We will find a coach, pay him APPROPRIATELY, continue having more talent and tradition than any team in KY, and get back to our winning ways. Hopefully very soon. But it will happen.
You hit the nail on the head. $4 million a year will be a drop in the bucket by then, especially in the SEC.
