This kind of money is insane for programs that have historically been good but not great programs. The bottom line is they would have to start recruiting in the top 15 consistency to reach consistent success on the field. Neither program is in a hot bed for recruiting, that has been proven year in year no matter the coach. It won't be worth it in down years i.e. 8-4 or 9-3 years which is were these programs are going to finish more times than not.I totally agree. I actually think if Purdue is willing to pay over $6 million a year that Louisville shouldn't match. He's not worth that. He's obviously my top choice and the guy I want but not at that cost. There are a number of other coaches I like that Louisville could get and pay less than $5 million a year.
For Brohm to even be making what he's making now is a little crazy. Some of these coaches like him, Mark Stoops, Lovie Smith, etc...are honestly being overpaid based on their resume but that seems to be par for the course in todays game.
Purdue throws 6M, I think they are willing, that is a big gamble. I can't believe the market is 6M for any coach that hasn't proven he can build a program that can could compete for a divisional title. He is 7-6 and 6-6. Don't get me wrong that is a really good start for where Purdue was at, but is it would a 2M bump? Crazy money and athletes can't get paid...geez.
