07:15 AM ET 05.20 | Times are a' changin' in the Big Ten, where new teams are in and salaries are up -- way up. Michigan State upped its investment a year ago, Minnesota and Purdue have now done the same, Ohio State continues to lead the way and Michigan still has the highest-paid member of an increasingly prosperous Big Ten club -- football assistant coaches. ... As a football staff, MSU is receiving $93,775 more in base salary in 2013 than in 2012, but it has dropped from fourth to sixth in the league among the 10 schools that must report, according to salary information obtained by the Free Press. ... Combined, those 10 schools are investing $1.72 million more this year in football assistant coaches.

I was thinking the same thing. UF currently does not have an assistant making over a 1 mil but Pease might if UF wins the SEC.

That (1.72 Million) was the increase in assistant's salaries this year, not the total salary payroll. The full story in the Free Press breaks down every reporting school's salaries (base) for each assistant.

In West Texas right now the are big dry holes in the ground. They'll fill up when Noah starts getting the boat ready again...and the animals start pairing up.

When they say TSUN is leading the way...is it because they are still paying off RR assistants?

In Texas there are stock tanks...then ponds...then lakes. Never known of a stock tank to have any, or very little, fish...especially ones worth catching...ponds usually have catfish...lakes have bass...
