31.57% Yes
68.42% No

Comment: They will be a great staff. I think within two years we will be in the championship.

Comment: only " time " will tell if they are worth it !

Comment: Now we know why college tuition is so high. there are students who could care less about football, paying high tuition fee`s to cover these cost. I think football coaches in college football needs to be no more than a common public school teacher, or better yet, a prison guard.

Comment: In the world of today's college sports universities must hire the most capable coaches to be successful If OSU won't pay them someone else will.

Comment: Since the football program is self sufficient, whatever they pay is funded through the program's assets and does not affect the students. As long as the fans keep paying the ticket prices, the fans seem to be agreeing with the situation.

Comment: Yes. No choach is worth that much money.

Comment: Yes. Kids are there to get an education and become productive members of society not get killer tattoos, drink and drive and for me to spend ludacris sums of money on a "coach."

Comment: To much money for them to spend.

Comment: This is why the cost of college is so high.

Comment: To much emphasis on sports. A college education is more important than playing a sport-hence the term higher eduction. Coaches should be paid from a fund from admission ticket sales and televised games. Any player leaving for Pro ball and is attending school on a sports scholarship should be required to pay back the amount of the scholarship that was used to be put back into the scholarship fund. School (college) sports is only nice entertainment for students and their friends, families and a deversion from schoolwork.Seems college sports turned into profiteering.

Comment: WHAT A JOKE, MORE ASSANINITY GONE WRONG, DOWN THE WRONG ROAD.!!!!!!!!! YOUR EMERALD CITY DOUBLE/TRIPLE SUCKS, HOW DO YOU TOLERATE LIVING IN A FILTHY CITY LIKE COLUMBUS.?? HELL, GO TO THE EAST SIDE AND RE-EDUCATED, YOUR CITY QUADRUPLE SUCKS,GOD.!!!!!!!

Comment: No, why not pay the osu players who are the ones winning the games.

Comment: The salaries are absurd. I can only think how many deserving students could be awarded scholarships with that money...not football scholarships...academic scholarships.

Comment: Not at all. If you want to play BIG BOY Football then you have to pay BIG BOY salaries. besides these aren't really that much in comparison to other big schools.

Comment: Immoral! Lower the cost of education if you don't know what else to do with it! Give it to food banks or homeless shelters!

Comment: No, more emphasis should be made on lowering tuition and raising the level of education at OSU.

Comment: The money could be used to lower to cost of going to the school for education - or have we forgot that what schools are for? *** VP Biden was in Gahanna recently decried the strain rising college costs puts on parents, arguing that the added expenses are robbing them “of the American Dream” of putting their children in a position to do better than they did. is it OSU or i.o.u. ?

Comment: ABSOLUTELY NOT. THEY WILL PROBABLY RAISE TUITION AGAIN THIS FALL TO PAY FOR IT. OSU NEEDS TO GET BACK TO THE BUSINESS OF EDUCATION! NOBODY IS WORTH THAT KIND OF MONEY!!!

Comment: $4 million per year!!? WHY!? There are much bigger issues in this world than a football coach! Come on! Priorities in this country have certainly gotten lost. If the country as a whole can't afford to support it'self, why in the world are they going to pay that much money for a football coach?
