I heard someplace that Houston Nutt has made something like 9 million dollars in buyouts from Arkansas and Ole Miss. Nice work if you can get it....

The facts are- all collegiate coaches are willing to negotiate the highest dollar amount possible. And they certainly have ridiculous clauses in those contracts. A&M will have to fork over almost 6mil to Sherman.
As the old saying goes, BULLS#!T walks, MONEY TALKS!

And, as history would have it- A&M was the first university to pay a million/yr contract- Jackie Sherrill.
OSU was only job he was coming back for. AM is probably the 6th best job just in SEC.

The SEC has always had Bama, but LSU is kinda a Johnny Come Lately in terms of tradition. Florida, TN, and GA have had historical success, but nowhere near the Big 3 of the Big 12 at its formation: Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Texas (in that order). Colorado was no slouch at the inception of the Big 12 either.

The SEC has had tremendous success the last several years, and it appears that no one will be able to stop LSU this year, but your claim was a tad overstated from a realistic historical perspective. Just pointing that out.

Carry on.

Sorry LSU is no Johnny come lately in terms of tradition. LSU won its first conference championship in 1896 before there was an SEC. LSU has 11 SEC championships which ranks it 4th in total behind Alabama (22) Tennessee (13) and Georgia (12).

LSU won a national championship in the 1958 as well as in 2003 and 2007.

LSU has finished in the AP top 25 in every decade since the AP has been doing this ranking (1930ís) and has 33 such finishes. 19 of those were top 10 finishes. The only decade that LSU didnít have at least 1 top 10 finish was the 1990s. .

AND there are just 6 schools with more Coaches Poll national Championships than LSUís 3 and 3 of those 6 have just one more than LSU.

LSU also ranks 13th on the list of teams with the most wins and of the top 50 teams with the most wins, LSUís winning percentage ranks 13th as well.

LSU has a rich football tradition that ranks it will in the top 15 or so programs all time.
