USA Today put out a sweet chart of how much schools are paying per victory, and Doc Holliday’s $600,000 pay is divided over five victories. On the full chart, he’s actually toward the bottom, but well above most of the Mid-American Conference schools.
Southern Miss’ Ellis Johnson gets the raspberry here. As he learned the hard way, division by zero is impossible. Still, he’s got some checks to cash for the next few years.
