Matt Painter: 6th highest paid coach in MBB?

That's right. Our boy got a big time raise.

Now I did a little research to see exactly where that would put him in terms of being paid in college basketball.

Now at first I was a little peeved. I don't know if 2 sweet 16s is enough to warrant being paid with the who's who of college coaches. However, Just think if Hummel had not been hurt. Either time, you would have to assume we are a final 4 team. So he did get that stolen from him. Also, when you look at the list he is third in the B1G, right behind Matta and well behind Izzo. I think that is fair as well.
