"There's just no way I'd have the same kind of respect if it weren't for him," Martin told AnnArbor.com during a recent interview.

It was a lot different."
Seems to be a super slow day for new information on the board today, so I thought I'd throw this out there: an interesting article on head football coach searches and hiring, looking at the PAC 12 and focusing mostly on Washington State AD Bill Moos and his hire of Mike Leach.
Here's an excerpt from the article, quoting Moos:
"There's the Charlie Weis deal," he says of Kansas' hire. "He failed miserably at Notre Dame, but, 'By God, he was at Notre Dame.' Down at Ole Miss, they have to have 15 people on a search committee. By the time they get through the introductions on the search committee, all the good coaches are hired.
"I don't need 15 people sitting at the table. Where are the other 14 when I get evaluated on (the performance of) my football coach?"
At the end of the article, there's a list of head football coach salaries in the PAC. Colorado's coach is listed at $725,000!

Title says it all. This story brings on my allergies everytime.
ESPN Goal Line is on today going to various spring games around the country.
