I saw this earlier. Has to be incredible mismanagement somewhere, plus the head scratchers of the Kiffin and Dooley hires. I think Jones will get them competitive. Probably not elite but competitive, which should be enough to change their financial position enough to get that debt paid down over about 10 years. Have they changed ADs last 3 or 4 years? If not that should be on the short list of to dos.
get competitive and start selling out home games and that debt starts to disappear pretty quickly with a 100K+ seat stadium.

since I believe they are still paying Fulmer a paycheck this is not a shock to me. Pearl might be getting some cash still too.
don't think Pearl is getting cash, since they fired him with cause.
Fulmer got his final check in December.
I really wish i could get fired from my job and not do jack for a few years and get paychecks
Let's start paying athletes!
A boy, a Twitter page, and the aspiration that you follow him. It's what this country was founded upon.
