    Did you take into consideration of the stacking affect of the tournament successes? It is not just the bonus he gets for winning the NCAA championship, but I would assume he also still gets the final four, elite eight, sweet 16 and making the NCAA bonuses as well. That is just shy of $500K, not just the 250K for a banner.

    True, but if CAM wins the Big Ten Tournament which haven’t done well at for a long time he gets $50.. That is so much lesser than $125 he gets for scheduling only 1 team over 300.. I would just think that you would reward winning more than scheduling at least from an administrators standpoint.. That to me came across as shocking..

    I agree with the B1G tournament comparison. That did seem a little low to me as well.
