Re: Top 100 Highest Paid Football Coaches - say it isn't so... Cristobal is higher?

Yup,

Cristobal is the highest paid coach in the belt.

So far I think hes earned his paycheck. Still think that if FIU goes bowling this year someone from the AQ schools will come a calling.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

Especially if Miami doesn't go bowling. Wouldn't shock me to see Shannon fired and Cristobal hired

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!
