Yeah, I'm sure Emmert is champing at the bit to show up to this event.

Meanwhile, your state's highest paid public employee is probably a sports coach.

His base salary (the part which is actually paid by public/university money) is ~$450k; the rest is paid through incentives (paid by booster donations), and the radio/TV contracts (paid by the network that produces the coach's radio & TV shows).

Looks like Gordon Gee was the top salary paid out through the university at ~$850k, followed by the VP of the Health Sciences, the AD, the head of the cancer center, and the head of their genetics program.

The players will not be paid, only the visiting team will have a pre-game meal, and the manager will be paid $500 million.

All fans who attend the game and do nothing but stay until the third inning will receive credit towards a future Captains game of their choice. In addition to this great benefit of just showing up, given the recent ruling in college athletics that will allow student athletes the opportunity to enjoy consuming food as they need it, four lucky college students will win an All-You-Can-Eat wristband and tickets to a future Captains game.
During the game, fans will be permitted to move from their seat location designated by their ticket, subject to a one inning waiting period, if they desire a different view.


That's farking beautiful. I wish I lived closer.

My SO's from Toledo originally and keeps threatening to move us to Ohio from New England. If we did live in OH, I'm certain that he'd be telling me to find a babysitter that day so that we could attend the game.

And they're going to go ahead and almost double the number of games they play, and still expect the players to just be happy to be there.

Also, why don't we schedule some games on Christmas and Thanksgiving?  Those players will just love to be in a hotel in Fargo, ND for the holidays.
