    To make those comments when he has a $95,000,000 contract is just disgusting!

    It like Bezos' telling his $15 hour employees Amazon isn't about making money, it's about doing the work.

    Yeah -

    College Football is now an endlessly deep well of "show me the money".

    Kirby just got 130,000,000
    Kelly got his $95,000,000

    The corruption of a simple "sport" is breathtaking.

    Pay the Coaches
    Pay the Players
    Pay the family, handlers and all the 3rd cousins, in on the graft.
    Build New Facilities
    Create a collective, which is a nice word for an organization dedicated to bribery, auctions, and corruption.
    Crap all over student "Non-athletes" by offering them NOTHING compared to the athletes.
    Sell your soul to a "conference" and a TV contract.
    Destroy rivalries and traditions.
    Oh and "laugh" at attending classes or being part of the student body.

    Well done by those "in charge" of what used to be a nice (football) ancillary benefit to a College or University.

    The remark was about a 1 iron, I believe. I used to use a 1 iron off the tee a fair amount. I could hit it about 240 or so and it was very accurate, off the tee. I hit it a couple of times from the fairway and it was different. it was still pretty accurate but it didn't get more than about 10 - 15 feet in the air and it would run at least 100 feet when it landed. I could stop a 2 iron decently from the fairway but not my 1 iron.

    Not a movie, Lee Trevino said it:

    “If you are caught on a golf course during a storm and are afraid of lightning, hold up a 1-iron. Not even God can hit a 1-iron.”

    I don't think it's a movie reference. I think Lee Trevino may have said that. An urban legend, perhaps. Here's the story as I remember it. Lee got struck by lightning on the golf course once. A reporter asked him what he would do if he got caught in a similae situation again. He told the reporter he would take a 1 iron from his bag and hold it over his head. When questioned why he would do that he replied "Even God can't hit a 1 iron."

    If you don't get players from the portal then maybe you can pull that off... but he's no Dabo Swinney.
