Point One:

[The football coach at the University of Wyoming] is getting a pay raise to $1.4 million a year, starting next year. He is currently guaranteed $850,000 a year. The new contract provides for raises that will take his guaranteed salary up to $1.7 million in 2023 and includes added incentives, such as two $625,000 payments if he stays through the term of the contract.

The coach’s raise comes as the university has eliminated more than 100 staff and faculty jobs… No university faculty and staff received pay raises this year.

Point Two:

Board President John McPherson [said] : “We’re not shortchanging the academic side of the university by agreeing to [the] terms of coach Bohl’s contract.”

    Last year’s team went 2-8 including a loss to . . . New Mexico! This year’s team goes 8-5, so of course we have to give away the farm. Have the idiots in the athletic department never heard of random variation?

    I also loved this: “includes added incentives.” Why do college football coaches need added incentives to win?

    One of these days, one of these jock-sniffing dirt bags like McPherson will get what he deserves for stomping out all pretense that a university is an actual, you know . . . university.

    I live in the American West, and I love the American West, but the McPherson types aren’t making it any easier on me.
