$666,666: The Paycheck of the Beast

So, let's see here. UAT's "savior" just finished 6-6 with loss #6 to Auburn. His $4 million annual salary works out to $666,666 per win (none of which, I hasten to add, was earned against Louisiana-Monroe, much less Auburn).

No wonder the little jerk is widely known as "Nick Satan." Makes perfect sense.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Oh, and bammies: you could have kept Mike Shula, saved $3 million, and still finished 6-6. Heck, Little Mikey proved in '06 that could beat La-Mo (by a lot), so odds are he'd have probably done even better. Talk about wasted money. But then again, you've provided the rest of us with so much entertainment over the last month, maybe it wasn't entirely wasted after all...

I know Brandon Cox has now equaled Jason Campbell with 3 straight wins over UAT but you've got to be looking forward to a quarterback with the ability to throw an accurate ball. So many missed opportunities last night.

I sure hope that Jerraud Powers got a game ball. That was a HELL of a catch in the end zone, and I read later that he was bitten by some cop's German shepherd right afterwards. Weird.

Will, just wanted to say thanks. I never cared about Auburn before, but after following your writing at Vodkapundit and then over here, I find myself watching for them whenever they're on, rooting for them (except when they play LSU:sorry) and checking for their scores. Someone who loves college football like I do can always use another team to follow and pull for. Let's see, how does it go? WAR EAGLE!!
