Well, that takes a bit of the shine off UConn’s 64-50 win over South Florida. While the Hartford Courant‘s Christopher Keating cites Calhoun’s tormentor, freelance journalist Ken Krayeske as a bit of a provocateur (and at least one Connecticut scribe has described Krayeske in terms far less flattering), the coach raised an excellent point, though perhaps unintentionally.
“Quite frankly, we bring in $12 million to the university, nothing to do with state funds,” Calhoun shouted. “We make $12 million a year for this university.”
If Calhoun’s hoops program is profitable to the tune of $12 million profit annually, he’s hardly being overpaid. A.J. Price, however, is being seriously fucked over.
