Sounding like Tyra low balled him.

Negotiations ongoing. Tyra hasn’t blown it... yet. Brohm camp, to their credit, didn’t shut things down after unsatisfactory offer.

Its the academic side at UofL.
Some are pushing for a 3 million dollar a yr coach, which wouldnt be Brohm.

If the academic side had their way, theyd do away with sports.

Idiots.

Ha! Purdue paying Brohm almost $4M and willing to pay more to keep him. But, those academics...

We actually have the funds. Our academic side is just fine. Tuition freeze of 7 years and counting with an endowment to support it.

Do you really want to get into a pissing match comparing UofL and Purdue as academic institutions?

I think its wise to disengage and redirect back to athletics where UofL can make a good case for itself.

Yea. Its like a university's first priority should never be education. Silly academic elites.

We can walk and chew gum at the same time.

The Athletic budget is self sufficient and actually supplenents the Academic budget.

Some here are snobs who are anti sports or rather anti 7 figure payments for coaches.

The academics should take care of their side and stay out of the Athletics business.

Thanks for your 1 sense errrr cent......

The professors would go elsewhere for more money if someone was willing to pay. Would they give up tenure and work in a contract like “sports coaches” do? Would they be held accountable for results (grants, publications, professional standing)? No way. They always assume that dollars that go into athletics would otherwise go into academics. It just isn’t so. Those dollars would go into alternative entertainment. Jurich raised a ton of money for athletics, which offended them. But apparently not enough to get off their asses and raise their own.

The problem is Kerry for the longest time the academic side was funding your overspending by the athletic department.

You couldn’t possibly believe half the shit you post here do you. Simply put Matty Bangs spits it up, you and the rest of the big blue barnyard lap it up and regurgitate it all around the internet. Asking for proof for claims like this is a waste of time because it all leads back to Matty.

Howie should ban you for this bullshit

This ain't about academics it's solely about $$$ Tyra fires P and owes him a lot of money just to then turn around and get his replacement at Dollar General?? Get real it's expensive at this level and you gotta pay.

The fact that UL is having to pay Bobby Petrino $14 million dollars to fire him is absolutely criminal. Why Jurich gave him that buyout is total incompetence. There was absolutely zero competition for BP.

EXACTLY.

The movement to downplay Athletics at UofL is 5 to 6 years old.
Maybe longer. Probably a cayuts fan or fans who started the movement.
Question is can Vince overcome that? I think this is why Vince is the right person for the AD job at this time. We’ve come to far to buckle now!
