While I tend to agree that we pay coaches too much in college athletics, this article is a pretty sorry commentary on Texas politicians. A bunch of them are all worked up because Rick Barnes got a raise when the State of Texas is facing a huge budget crisis. I guess they either forgot, don't realize, or conveniently ignored that Barnes' salary is funded by a corporation that runs Texas athletics, not the State of Texas. That would be like me complaining that someone in an engineering firm across town got a raise while my company is laying off workers.
Sorry, that's all I can find today. The TCJ has nothing new today, so there really must be nothing new on the K-State front.
