What recession?

Chris Low revealed in a column this morning that three SEC schools are paying a combined $15 million for coaches not to coach. And that sum is just for the three schools who fired coaches this season, Mississippi State, Auburn and Tennessee.

Whoever says we’re in an economic crunch in this country obviously hasn’t been introduced to SEC football.
