Football Games Are On Saturdays

The article from which the screen shot below was taken is about the Business of College Football, particularly Head Coach compensation, and specifically Nick Saban's compensation. The piece is a bit of muckraking, which is fine. But the last sentence in the paragraph below, if taken seriously rather than tongue and cheek, as the author intended, shows the issues with performance based contracts, of the bald type that are used to reward some of these head coaches. Even if the kids behave like lunatics before, during, and after the games, they still might be legit students the rest of the time. Everyone needs to blow off some steam. The problem is when that's done to the exclusion of everything else.
