The USA Today has crunched the numbers and the biggest coaching bargain in D-1 football is Bowling Green's Gregg Brandon, who earned $183,909 last year and saw his Falcons win eight games for an average of $22,989 per victory. On the opposite end is Minnesota's Tim Brewster, whose $1-million-a-year salary and one win cost the school ... you can do the math.
Kirk's Bad Day
Poor Kirk Herbstreit. He was skewered for falsely reporting Les Miles would take over as the head coach at Michigan, only to backtrack when Miles announced he was staying at LSU, leading Herbstreit to say that he'll never break a news story again. Now comes a fun rumor that his "inside source" on the Miles scoop was a prank caller pretending to be Desmond Howard.

But we were a little taken aback at this new formation they are rehearsing -- specifically for LSU.
Charlie Weis' Next Job
If the whole football coaching thing doesn't work out for Charlie Weis -- and judging by this season, it really isn't -- the Notre Dame coach has a position waiting for him on one of President Bush's committees.

We love professional wrestling (especially from the '80s). We love college football. So when SIOC's Ty Hildenbrandt compared each BCS team to a pro wrestler, we knew we had to find a place for it in Campus Clicks.
Pop Culture Nugget
The marketing staff at Sony Pictures decided to give away fake Hawaii driver's licenses with the purchase of a Superbad DVD ... and Honolulu police officials are not happy about it.

Has the whole Will Ferrell sports-movie-thing jumped the shark? After watching this preview of his latest piece of art, Semi-Pro, we're still not sure.
