How much do Barry Alvarez and Bret Bielema make? And you get upset about this?
I got over being upset about their ridiculous salaries long ago. I still feel a little crowded though, living in the same city as alvarez's bloated ego.
Kids work their butts off, come back and play after ACL tears and concussions, and people are upset because they get a TV at the end of the year.
Like these guys aren't already the most compensated people on campus? How many guys on that team are on a free or almost free ride? Who gets the best free tutors when they're falling behind? Generous food stipends. General rock star treatment on campus, and god knows how many other perks that are still kept secret. Yeah, these poor guys need even more.
I know it's all about money and football brings it in, but can't they at least keep this shit secret and not rub it in our face. They're guys who know how to throw and catch a ball and run fast, and we hold them up like fucking heroes who are saving the planet. Sorry if I don't have any sympathy because they suffer the occasional sore knee or headache. I don't see anyone handing out TVs to the one-legged people coming home from the middle east.
