we are paying our coach just shy of what OSU is per year - our contract total value is more
and more than Harbaugh and Franklin make

after a "build" period should we expect to be elite like OSU and Michigan .. after all we are paying an elite salary
or is it tougher to win at Nebraska and we have to pay elite level salaries to get good but not elite results

are wins going to cost more at Nebraska than they do at places like OSU, Michigan and Penn St?

Don't worry, the OSU and Michigan coaches will be getting raises again before long.

yes - b/c they have elite programs at salaries at or below we are paying

in a few years - should we be elite like Michigan and Ohio St?

It would probably be more relevant to compare year to year
2023 Rhule will be making $5.5 mil. How does that compare with Day, Harbaugh and Franklin?
I don’t expect him to be at Day - Harbaugh levels year one

by year 5 we pay him 10 million and year 7 - 12 million. Year 8 - 12.5 million

Is the expectation by year 5 - 8 are we elite?

What I’m really asking is - can Nebraska be a consistent elite top 5 - top 10 team regardless of what we pay or is it more realistic to be consistently good (Iowa - Wisconsin) with an occasional very good/elite season - Baylor - TCU

And I am saying, in 2028 when he is making $10 mil, what are the coaches at OSU, Mich and Penn St going to be making? IDK. That is why you compare current salary to current salary. Additionally, the landscape will change in the next five years. Salaries will continue to escalate, will $10 mil in 2028 or $12.5 mil in 2030 even be middle of the road? Just too much unknown to even worry about.

Like I said, in 2023, he is making $5.5 mil, what are the expecations and does he meet them?

Listening to the goals of the coaching staff and the administration, the goal is to compete for conf championships and playoff berths. That is exactly what the goal should be. So yes, you have to compete with those schools for salaries as well as everything else.

Let me ask you this question: what if it did?

So long as we're in the B1G with stupid money, why should I or any of us care how much it costs for us to win?
