Well we won't have to worry about paying any of that out now will we. Bonus money for a win?... Hmmm, isn't that what they are being paid for in the first place?

What a shameless message to send our student athletes-let's win one for the $$$$. I expect more from a public university. IU administrators, get your act together.

All the schools have packages similar to this, only their head coach began the season as head coach. More money that Sampson cost us! When will it end?

If you don't think Painter has the same bonuses in his contract, he doesn't know how to negotiate a contract. Virtually every coach has these types of bonuses in their contracts. You shows the typical PU fan mentality on these forums of being stupid.

And you only go to prove that IU fans don't care if cheating goes on as long as games are won. I can't wait until next year when IU lines up for the first game with six players on scholarship and a bunch of walk ons from the HPER. IU will be lucky to win ten games.

Did you actually read my post or can you really just not comprehend English.

Please try reading this again (I posted it again below for your second attempt at English comprehension) and tell me what this has to do with supporting cheating to win. You obviously did not graduate from PU or I am giving PU way more credit than they deserve for educating their students.

Don't waste your time explaining this to Jeff in Bigtn. I looked up the meaning of idiot in the dictionary and they had a picture of him.

Well I assume because my routing station is Lafayette you mental giant you surmised I am a PU fan. Well guess again, nimrod. Do you think every Bloomington post is from an IU fan? Well, you probably do. My statement was meant as sarcasm, learn to know the difference. I might point out my routing station was Indy until recently and Otterbein before that all without moving from my home town Einstein. I see stupid dripping off you Pedro. I've been an IU fan for 55 years, not like a Johnny come lately like you.

Well, well well. We hear from an obvious ND fan. It has to be since you're so close to South Bend although you might be a Northwestern fan, right? Can't be an IU fan since you're not from Bloomington. Then again you probably have never seen a college campus. Example: "You shows" the typical PU fan mentality on these forums of being stupid. Outstanding you dropout.

It's not like it'll matter, what with the way IU plays lately. A win against Arkansas seems improbable at best and even if they get that, UNC will lay a smackdown on them.

I guess the Hick fropm Merrillville who continues to insist that I am from there is wearing off on me. By the way, though not an IU fan for 55 years, I have been a fan for 30+ years and counting. So spout your sracasm and the rest of us can try to guess when you are serious and when you are being sarcastic. By the way, I am not Hispanic so Pedro doesn't fit. Talk about Nimrods and maybe a racist one at that!

Your stupidity is showing through if you associate a typo to how smart a person is. I am not an ND fan in anything. I don't even watch their games unless they are getting beat up on (great season to watch last year in football!). BTW, I did graduate college, did you? Doubtful! Of course, you are not showing an alliance to any school so should I assume that you are a PU fan?
