    What would you have given Rhoads if you were JP?

    Say you are JP. What would you have done?

    Easy for me to say but I was thinking about the same as JP, 10 year around $25 Mil deal. However, I can see why $20 M makes sense with possibility of earning more for bowls etc.

    Fill a truck bed with cash and have a crane lift the roof off of his house and have a giant shovel pile money into the house through the roof until you can't fit any more money inside. Cuts down on the bank fees.

    I don't think its as simple as just giving him what you want.

    Re: What would you have given Rhoads if you were JP?

    I think it the perfect base contract. I would build incentives in the contract to make him be anywhere from the 3-5 highest paid coach in the Big 12, if he reaches those incentives.

    That ISU can't just shell our 35 million. It's got to come from somewhere.

    Re: What would you have given Rhoads if you were JP?

    Rhoads isn't stupid. He knows the financial difficulties that ISU faces compared to other budgets in the Big XII. I like the idea of giving him 10 years. I'm sure there is room to play in there as well. It's not like if all of this blows up in 3 years and we are in a BCS bowl and money starts flowing in, that JP is going to tell Rhoads to stuff it, he signed on the dotted line. To me this says, "Listen we know you are a hot name right now. We may not be able to offer you top dollar, but we can get close to doubling your base salary per year and on top of that, we'd like to show you we are committed to you by giving you 10 years of job security.

    Knowing you have 10 years of cash coming in would be a great position to be in right now, for any coach. Especially in the world of win now or be gone!
