    Did he play? PSU got some nice revenge for last year when Michigan won 49-10. I don't think they forgot. Nice win for the Nitney Lions. They were impressive and the better team. No shame in that

    Not a down, though he is paid $700,000 per game. Meanwhile the fellows that are getting their heads smashed earn bubkis.

    Hope he loses a few more games and gets canned.

    So this was your gateway to continue your protesting players not getting paid and Harbaugh bashing in one fell swoop. Got it. It's not his fault that all college kids don't get paid. I'm fine if they did. He's an easy target but an excellent coach. I don't get worked up too much on losses when it involves 18-21 year old kids.

    People earn what they can and get replaced all the time. It's the American way. He will always have a coaching job ready for him whether it's at Michigan, the NFL or even high school for fun. Lord knows he doesn't need the money

    The football program is a cash cow. They will always pay someone 6-10 million to coach it if that is what it takes. That's the going rate

    As an alumni who still writes checks I'm more then ok with him. He represents the school well

    I'm thrilled for Penn State and hope they run the table. It's a senior rich team and it might be their turn. 'd love to see Alabama and Penn State in the finals

    Collusion is not the American way. NCAA prohibits teams from paying players (Arizona and many other rogue programs got around that). Remove that archaic and primitive rule and let the free market decide what an athlete is worth.

    Sorry if that busts your student athlete illusion but cheating these young adults who often come from poverty surroundings, is criminal.

    Only reason Harbaugh is "earning" 8 figures is because his players don't earn a dime.

    You're silly. Bo got paid the going rate for the times and he was paid as an AD. I'm pretty sure he didn't work for free. Harbaugh played college football for free as well as all other players. Coaches make more now then they did in the past just like in all sports.

    Once Harbaugh gets that signature win over the Buckeyes (it will happen sooner or later) I would expect his recruiting to improve and his team to join the few elite teams nearly always in the conversation of the final four.

    This is true. It is also true that when teams try to out skill Ohio State they usually get beat. However when you smash them in the mouth to get physical with them they have struggled the last couple of years. That's how MSU beat them at OSU. That's how Clemson beat them. That's how Oklamoma beat them at OSU. That's how Michigan took them to over time at Ohio State last year. That's how Penn State beat them last year.

    We were living in NYC. He applied to all the usual east coast schools (NYU, BC, BU, GW, GT, Brown etc) and was accepted. Michigan was the only mid west school and he wasn't allowed to apply to Stanford as I thought he might actually get in. Math whiz and social savant. He is a professional gambler now. My money hard at work. He learned to play in college so the 200k+ wasn't a total waste I guess

    Correct answer is to let the free market sort that out. Don't force the schools to pay players....but allow them to.

    It would seem a bit unusual initially, seeing the bidding wars. No different though than the competition for coaches.

    In the aggregate the football revenue would be identical if every multi million dollar head coach was fired and replaced by his top assistant.

    This is an amateur game where the allure is the school affiliation not the quality of play. If the same athletes (and coaches) formed an unaffiliated league with the same talent...they would go broke.

    When's the last time you've ever watched a AAA baseball game on national TV on prime time? Though I have to admit I have enjoyed all the AAA baseball threads in this forum though the years. They are riveting. FWIW the yearly college football legacy thread here is far and away the most popular thread by a large margin.

    Your comparison is not even apples to oranges. It's more like apples to marbles. Your comparison is that far off. College football is by all accounts close to a 5 billion dollar industry. The top 10 schools account for more then 1 billion dollars. Of course those schools will pay top dollars to attract the best coaches possible. They have to as it fund most of the other men's and woman's sports minus basketball. Like it or not College football is a business. A big business. ESPN is paying $7.3 billion over 12 years to telecast seven games a year for the CFB series. If they didn't someone else would. Maybe one day people will stop watching and stop attending college games and it will revert back to the 1970's pay scale you are professing. I sincerely doubt it though.

    College head coaches are the faces of the university. They are almost always vetted by the alumni. I bet 99% of the people that pay to go to games or watch on TV couldn't tell you who the AD or president of Michigan or Ohio State is. But I betcha 99% of those same people
    who could tell tell you who the head coaches were.

    BTW some assistant coaches make more that 1 million dollars a year. I know of two just on one staff. You do realize that the NFL and major college programs compete for the same assistant and head coaches? Colleges have to pay up to retain talent the same as Google or Apple does.

    I'll never begrudge anyone who makes as much as someone is willing to pay them. Your rheotric has socialist undertones written all over it.

    If you are talking about the handful of colleges that do not receive public funding, you are correct. Let them place as many zeros as they wish on the coaches paychecks. In Arizona though, the two highest paid public employees are Sean Miller and Rich Rodriquez coming in at a combined $11,000,000.

    You are damn correct that as a voter and a taxpayer I have a say in how the schools are operated and funded. The Board of Regents are elected positions.

    I can assure you that the top 50 NCAA football coaches are expendable and replaceable...The OP man Harbaugh is a bust. Let him crawl back to the NFL where real world markets are in play and he can at least attempt to justify his salary.

    Too bad he couldn't go in and play when their starting QB got knocked out of the game. With QB 1 and QB 2 out I don't give Michigan much of a chance next week. QB 3 stinks. Now 1-1 against Wisconsin. No shame in that. Wisconsin is a very good team.

    With the injury to Speight and the benching of OKorn the best news for Michigan is their freshman QB got to play in 3 games this year to prepare for next. Hopefully he will be back for the Bowl game.

    See all doesn't have to be so negative. I love Michigan Football.

    Reason why you don't hand $10,000,000 to a coach is that he cannot control all events on the field of play. Beyond the fact that this team would still have 3 losses with the starting QB in place, handing the salary of 100 educators to a single ex jock is beyond any non hallucinogenic imagination at a publically funded institution.

    If "wait till next year" is a suitable salve to placate the taxpayers, then they are idiots.

    First off he doesn't make 10 million or eight figures a year. More embellishment on your part. He is however paid the going rate. The football program is a cash cow. If all the other cash cow schools start playing less the salaries will come down. Until then somebody will be paid.

    I disagree with your they've would have lost anyways ( all three games) but injuries are indeed part of the game. It is what it is.

    Enjoy yourself. As for me I'm going to go control things I have in my control. Like picking the 300+ limes that are ripe. The tree is a beast.

    Harbaugh was listed as the country’s highest-paid coach last year thanks to a clause in his contract that gave him an extra $2 million in the form of a life insurance policy. Alabama’s Nick Saban ($11,132,000) and Clemson’s Dabo Swinney ($8,526,800) were both ahead of Harbaugh in 2017.

    The full USA Today coaching salary database can be found here.

    Below are the salaries of each coach in the Big Ten and where they rank nationally:

    Jim Harbaugh, Michigan: $7,004,000 (3rd nationally)
    Urban Meyer, Ohio State: $6,431,240 (4th)

    Just as your baseball card is worth what someone is willing to pay for it, a coach is worth what a University is willing to pay to get his services.

    Excellant point when condiering a non publically funded school. Michigan is a recipeint of an ample amount of taxpayer dollars. I believe that the Supreme Court of the US caps the justices salary at the same rate as the president at $400,000. Restrictions do apply in compensation for public employees.

    Commem indicated that the 2nd and third string QB's were not nearly as good as the first string player, yet the compensation of the three is identical at food, athletic gear and a scholarship. Why would that be Brick, in your college football is a beacon of Capitalism logic?

    Thank goodness for the Football programs. Money well spent. I know Michigan's athletic 2018 budget is 182 million in total all sports. Expenses 180 million.

    When they have a 7 game home schedule receipts are near 50 million.

    Even Purdue makes money.
