How long is your list? Top 2 maybe not, but consider the size, he is way overpaid. Of course I think coaches are way overpaid too. I figure it could very well run without him and you would never know the difference.

I see that someone else read the article in today's Beckley newspaper. A private college where the degree is not worth the paper it is printed on and the president of said college is making multi-millions? Truly, there's a sucker born every day. In this case, several.
