    This is an excellent hire. He will turn our defense around immediately. I noticed it in Skip's first game when we beat Duke at home. THe secondary didn't look lost. They were actually aggressive and didn't get out of position. Sometimes we give Hudson too much credit without thinking about how good the assistants underneath him were. I am looking forward to next year now that we will have a proven defensive coach.

    It appears Rick Smith is our new DC. He was the secondary coach here under Skip, and is currently the secondary coach and asst HC at USF.

    Ken D try the csnbbs.com site for some good discussion of ACC, BE, realignment etc topics. Little of the crazy mess that dominates the ncstate, duke, and carolina forums. They have a separate smack talk section for all that. There is lots of good discussion about things like this.

    In the SEC the median spending in 2010 amounted to $164,000 per student athlete. Think about that for a minute. That's not the most in the league. Five SEC schools spent more than that. And I think it's a safe bet that this school isn't spending that much on its women's field hockey team. By far, most of it is spent on football, which accounts for about 25% of the scholarship athletes at SEC schools.

    That implies they are spending in the neighborhood of $500K for each football player. Every year! I wonder how much ECU spends?

    So true Ken D. The difference in athletic budgets from conference to conference is interesting. Most SEC and B1G schools are way ahead of of the others. Louisville will have the biggest budget in the ACC. ECU is way behind most ACC schools but way ahead of most CUSA, Sunbelt schools.

    Money makes a huge difference in athletic success and that is why ECU needed so desperately to move to the Big East even if the BE is a shell of it's former self. The money from TV and Bowls that can be earned makes a significant difference in budgets. So even if nBE falls completely apart and a completely new conference has to be created ECU is in a position to be a part of the best conference that isn't one of the Big 5 conferences, thus the biggest paydays they can realistically expect to get.

    To get the man, you've got to pay the man. :)

    Read the article today about athletic spending. There's a reason the SEC dominates D-I football, and it's money. ECU will have a hard time competing for quality assistants as long as schools like Arkansas can throw that much at a guy who isn't even a coordinator.

    I'm hearing the this probably will not happen. He is making $315K as LB coach at Arkansas.
