1. UCLA’s Jim Mora, California's highest-paid public employee didn't even make the list

2. California has had some extraordinary financial demands lately.

If Mora takes UCLA to 'the promised land' I'm sure California can find some more money.

We do it all the time in the SEC.

Saban needs a raise? - close state offices in the Black Belt! We'll find those important dollars!

You have to prioritize!

3. This Bruin family member is sad to say UCLA ain't making it to 'the promised land' this year

But Cal's Sonny Dykes looks to be positioning himself for favorable contract negotiations down the road. Bummer, he's only two years into a five year contract with a base salary of $250,000, although some red meat bonuses in his contract are kicking in.

4. On the other hand...

big dollars means big results!

2 losses in the SEC and you might need to start looking for a job!

Steve Spurrier already walked, and there are a couple more making fans antsy, like Richt and Bielema.

New coaches have to come from somewhere!
