This time they are diving into college football coaches' salaries. And after some in-depth research, what Iliana Limon found is obscene.
For example, Alabama will pay Nick Saban and his Alabama assistants $6.5 million this season. She states that if they reach the SEC title game and go to a bowl, then the school will be paying the staff a minimum of $464,285 per game.
Limon claims that $6.5 million dollars is 'more money than 32 Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A) programs spent on their entire teams in 2007-08.' Here is the list of what all of the non-BCS schools spend with those 32 schools denoted by an asterisks - LINK -.
