    Like who?? Once you have made a head coach in the SEC there is really nowhere else that can and will pay you better besides the NFL. I lived in Oxford for the four glourious years I was a student there and I have been to every SEC campus in the west and east conference. Why would he leave somewhere that they will only pay him more and more if he keeps winning and have 30,000 people worship you like a greek god. If he could pull a rabbit out of his hat and win the west, he would get a ridiculous offer to stay with all the alumni money that would pour in.

    That's funny, your confusing Ole Miss with Alabama, LSU, Florida..., no coach sees Ole Miss, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Tennessee... as an endgame, they see them as a stepping stone.

    it says total pay...but you and I know there are other things to sweeten the pot...Barry Alvarez got a bonus for coaching in a BCS game, there are coaches TV shows, clothing contracts etc.....its somewhat disturbing that Mack Brown is the highest paid state employee in Texas


    also the above figures were for 2012, there are a few that have negotiated higher salaries like Miles at LSU, and obviously those like Chizik who were fired

    The flaw is your theory is you believe that all SEC teams are regarded on the same level and clearly they are not. Lane Kiffon was worshiped like a god and the second USC called he couldn't pack his bags fast enough and who could blame him, a football school vs a women's basketball school.

    That is not my theory. Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi State are the weakest links in the SEC. I believe in the next three years, people will be talking Ole Miss as a major SEC West contender. Your Lane Kiffin theroy holds no water. Lane Kiffin is a tool and doesn't deserve to coach pee wee. This conversation will go nowhere with me. I am an Ole Miss fan no matter what type of season we are having and I will always believe the next year will be better than the last, so unless you went to an opposing SEC school, or reside in the SEC conference this conversation is useless.

    I watched the Texas vs. Ole Miss game this year, and Mack Brown earned his salary that night. I think you will see a large jump in salary in the next couple years for A&M's coach and Freeze's salary if they both have good years this coming year.

    I believe people will be talking about Ole Miss for the next three years also, heck people still talk about SMU.
