Big East Coaching Salaries
By Andrea Adelson


"USA Today always does a great job when it comes to getting information on coaching salaries. Its latest report is now out, and to no one's surprise, coaching salaries continue to rise.

The newspaper found the average pay in 2006 for coaches on the FBS level was $950,000. In 2011, the average pay is $1.47 million. In the six AQ conferences, the average pay in 2011 was $2.125 million.

In the Big East, the average pay is $1,683,489. Here is how the Big East coaches stack up against each other:

Greg Schiano, Rutgers: $2,346,969
Charlie Strong, Louisville: $2.305 million
Skip Holtz, USF: $1.7 million
Paul Pasqualoni, UConn: $1.5 million
Dana Holgorsen, West Virginia: $1.49 million
Butch Jones, Cincinnati: $1,393,833
Doug Marrone, Syracuse: $1,048,625
Todd Graham, Pitt: N/A
"

Luck reprimanded Geno Smith for comments he made about officials after the Cincy game. Does anyone know what he said?

"All year we've been getting bad calls and today was one of the worst I can remember. It's getting out of hand."

As a follow up, he was asked whether the officials were making West Virginia pay for leaving the conference.

"I can't speak to that," he said. "When there's obvious things that happen, it's hard to overcome it as a team."

I think it is pretty mild, he is just venting he could have expressed his feelings in a much worse manner.

Does anybody recall a thread where we were making "O Brother Where Art Thou" references recently? I cannot find it.

Something to chew on...

WVU football: BCS automatic bid may not be available to Mountaineers, others
by Jack Bogaczyk
Daily Mail Sports Editor Charleston Daily Mail


"CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- It sounds like alphabet soup, but it might not be music to those 'Eers.

It's about the AQ in the BCS and how it might affect WVU and every other program in the so-called "top six" conferences.

One of the major reasons West Virginia decided to leave its Big East home for a berth in the Big 12 was the uncertainty about a potential loss of automatic qualification in the Bowl Championship Series for the Big East.

Well, it could turn out that getting to the BCS from the Big East - whoever plays football in it - might be easier than through the football-tougher Big 12.

That could occur if BCS leadership decides to eliminate all AQ berths when rules and guidelines are set for a new contract with bowls and networks beginning with the 2014 season.

In other words, this conference realignment game might be even more of an unexpected crapshoot for the Mountaineers. In the Big 12, they eventually will get more than twice the amount of current revenue-sharing dollars (and also spend more in team travel), but also could face a rugged road trying to get to a BCS game again.

At a BCS meeting in San Francisco earlier this week attended by conference commissioners and university presidents, BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock said "everything under the sun" is on the table, including eliminating automatic qualification to conferences and/or changing the amount of at-large bids.

"I don't think any of us are happy that the BCS is one of the contributing factors to conference realignment," Hancock said. "I don't think anybody ever imagined that when the BCS was created, that the BCS could ever be a contributing factor in realignment."

WVU followed Pitt and Syracuse (to the ACC) and TCU (Big 12) in Big East exit decisions, and Louisville and perhaps even Cincinnati - considering talk that the Big 12 might expand again for 2013-14 - might bolt the Big East.

But if a decision is made to eliminate all automatic qualification (as well as allow a conference to take more than two BCS bids, the current limit), the road to the BCS could be easier from the Big East - with an 11-1 or 10-2 season and high poll ranking - than from the Big 12 where the road regularly runs through Oklahoma and Texas schools.

The Bowl Championship Series was instituted for the 1998 season.

West Virginia has finished in the BCS standings six times since 2002, with an average ranking of 14.3 (the high was ninth in 2007).

In those six seasons that WVU appeared, however, there have been a total of 11 appearances in the standings ahead of WVU by schools that will join the Mountaineers in the Big 12 in 2012-13 (that's WVU's desire).

In this week's BCS standings, six of the 10 "future" Big 12 teams appear (Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Kansas State, TCU, Baylor, Texas), while a 7-3 West Virginia (nor any other Big East team) is in that top 25.


Hancock's comments Monday and the discussion of AQ elimination followed a remark last week made by interim Big 12 Commissioner Chuck Neinas - who helped boost West Virginia's Big 12 bid - to CBSSports.com:

"I think there is growing sentiment to eliminate the automatic qualification part of the BCS. You can see what's happening. They are gerrymandering all over the place under the intent to maintain an automatic qualification. History has shown you don't need that if you are qualified."

Neinas said that dropping the AQ status for the six conferences might curb realignment fervor and slow the haste in these moves . It also would project a more open road to the big bowl games for the so-called non-AQ leagues, like the pending Conference USA-Mountain West football alliance.

Hancock said a plan for the BCS from 2014 and beyond is expected to be formulated in the next 6-8 months, or at least prior to ESPN's exclusive negotiating window for telecast rights renewal next October.

The BCS leaders will meet in New Orleans in the days prior to the Jan. 9 BCS National Championship Game.

There has been talk that the BCS could be expanded by a game, to six, also allowing more access and getting the Cotton Bowl - at Jerry Jones Stadium - into the rotation.

There is some thought that the BCS, with five or six games, could just take the top 10 or 12 teams in the final standings, eliminating all automatics and even at-large selections by bowls. Figure the Rose Bowl, with its traditional Big Ten versus Pac-12 matchup, to be a potential hurdle with such a format change.

If the five-game, 10-team, no-AQ format had been in place in recent years, the Big Ten would have had three BCS teams last season, while the Big East and ACC wouldn't have qualified. The Big East would have been left out of the BCS in 2005, 2008 as well as 2010.

Neinas wants teams to reach the BCS on "merit" - and there's a lot of merit to that notion.

Last season, each AQ conference with one BCS qualifier received $22,515,095. The three AQ leagues with an at-large team (SEC, Big Ten, Pac-10) added another $6 million.

The Mountain West, a non-AQ that landed champion TCU in the Rose Bowl, received $12,734,033 - the kind of bucks C-USA is salivating over if Houston (10-0) runs the table this season and finishes in the BCS top 12.

Yes, the Big 12 is more likely to get multiple BCS berths with an AQ format change than the Big East might be to get even one, but success will be easier to come by in the Mountaineers' current home. Just check those current BCS standings and polls.

The future BCS decision on AQ guidelines is just another unknown out there as West Virginia changes conference zip codes."

Holgy has lost 3 games with 3 to go. Raise it when he earns it. As I recall, our special teams sucked last year and 97% of this board was calling for the Head Coach's scalp.

Yes. And five minutes of body surfing on your players heads after each game in an opposing teams locker room.

Questions? Were ticket sales Higher or Lower after WVU stopped letting in fans at the half? Were the crowds louder then? Luxury boxes are nice for some but they equal a quieter crowd. I seem to remember the numbers in the stands at the coliseum(L.Rowe,G.Jones and E8)and at the stadium (80s)that you can't find in record books. Crowds at least x2 as loud. It was also twice as safe, twice as much fun and twice the party. I hope everyone gets Up this one! The 104 edition of the "Backyard Brawl" Let's go Mountaineers!!

I hope this is not the last installment of the Brawl, but if it is, I wish for 3 things:

1) WVU wins.
2) Geno has a HUGE day.
3) Holgy gets his first Gatorade shower at Mountaineer Field.

Awesome video.

I became a HUGE Miller fan when he made those back to back sacks a couple years ago against UL to prevent their comeback. You could tell he was giving every ounce of energy he had...he could barely pick himself up off the field.
