Re: George Mason a year later
It is a good read, but really it's interesting to look at expectations.
If you had asked them in 2005 if they would play basketball professionally for $8,000/month. How many of them do you think would have jumped at the chance.
For a recent college graduate, $48,000/year really isn't too bad.
I know sports make us all go gaga over the salaries, but the asst. coach was right, they did make themselves a lot of money. Without the tournament run, they may not have had the chance to play professionally at all.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
