I have the best readers.
Chris Campbell sent me this breakdown of what Brad Girtman asserted in the first piece of how much OSU would have been paying defensive players (just defensive players!) over the last 11 years.
For posterity, here’s what Girtman alleged in the first Sports Illustrated article:
For Girtman, quarterback hurries were worth $50, a tackle between $75 to $100 and a sack from $200 to $250.
And here’s the breakdown:
Obviously this is a bit tongue-in-cheek because it was never alleged that everybody got paid but I thought we could use a little levity and it kind of brought the ridiculousness full circle.
Maybe we should have doubled these figures so we wouldn’t have had to FIRE BILL YOUNG!
