Jimbo Fisher went from a $72000 salary to one of the highest-paid coaches in sports in 19 years
"It was cool. It was good to see".
"Tennessee fires athletic director John Currie".
A&M, in some regards, was taking a chance by letting Kevin Sumlin - who led the Aggies to their most consistent stretch of successful football in two decades - go and looking for someone who decision makers believed could take A&M to the pinnacle of college football.
Guess which one. Yep. As to human "power over existence", what assurance do we have that humans will overcome their "fallen" nature?
My phone pings again.
That's the big takeaway in Florida from Fisher's introductory press conference at Texas A$M. "We have all the ingredients".
"Fisher took over the FSU football program in 2010, following the retirement of coaching legend Bobby Bowden". Luke Padilla (6-3 ½, 335 pounds) who plays left offensive tackle (the blind side) and Aaron Galitz (6-3, 320 pounds) who mans the other tackle were selected recently to participate in the event.
Here's the message: These schools ain't loyal. But not when $75 million is on the line. They just aren't loyal...not to you the high school athlete. The 52-year-old had been vocal about his desire to improve Florida State's facilities last season, starting with the construction of a new football operations building. You can probably guess what it is. The future seems bright.

"This is an outstanding group of coaches and men of tremendous character who have played a key role in our success at UCF the past two seasons", Frost said. "It's actually a very systematic, concrete way of understanding how those essential building blocks work and how to achieve those that really stood out".
That's because these coaches have spent the last few months convincing hungry, wide-eyed athletes that they're going to be around. "We have to get there".
Recruiting scandal? Nah. Fake news. Or to make you think you're getting lured onto campus. "It's the best, or forget about it". Maybe. Personally, I don't think he's worth what Texas A&M is paying him. That's 7.5 million a year, in case you're counting at home.
A&M athletic director Scott Woodward, who worked with Fisher from 2000-04 at LSU and helped bring him to Aggieland, knew Fisher would be a perfect fit for A&M on and off the field. He promptly stuck one in his mouth. He did not coach in the Seminoles' regular-season finale; defensive tackles coach Odell Haggins served as interim coach. "There was an opportunity and a challenge here that I just couldn't pass up".
Fisher was clear that no one has greater expectations for the program than himself.
