Why does a man making $800K a year get a free car, and why on earth would his wife get one too? Parents should think about that the next time the university calls for a donation.

This makes me sick. With those salaries, they need a free car? Plus one for the wife? This is the sleazy side of college football. Why do cars have to be a part of the football program at all? Stop this insanity now!

These two are part of COTA's flash mob antics to dump the pump. They'd prefer taking the bus, but if they did then all of the football players tooling around in Lexuses would laugh at them. They don't really want to do things that cast an larcenous light on the football program, but they just have to...again, because they don't want to face the ridicule from the car-less football players who are just shaving points in order to graduate up to the free car and cash catagory of player.

hmmmmm, maybe they need to start re-evaluating contracts. No reason someone should be making that much money and demanding free cars.

Hate to say it, but the athletic dept is going to be costing the academic depts big time. People are going to see that and like Farmer said, will be reconsidering their donations.

Cars for coaches and administrators have been around Ohio State since the early 1980's.

The cars do not cost the University anything because the athletic department is self-supported and the cars are donated.

The cars are donated by dealers and if any idiot looked at the game programs over the years you would see all the dealers throughout Ohio listed that "donate" cars to the department to use in recruiting, etc.

No one evidently sees a problem paying some ex-political fool like our Gov.$50,000 to teach a one hour class but gripe about a car for an administrator.

No one sees a problem paying professors ridiculous amounts so they can write books and do research and never teach an undergraduate course but everyone complains about a department at the University that has not used state money in decades.

Interesting I think!

It seems like the Pot calling the Kettle Black,It's alright for me to drive a free car, but not the FB player. when it's the FB team who makes money for the university. While I don't agree with players being given cars, It seems like the administration is not practicing what they preach including the NCAA. A stop should be put to that practice. But that may make Geo Byers, mad because he can't get free tickets. I hope that the NCAA slaps OSU with a stiff fine and puts them on so tight of restrictions that they will learn something. Perhaps a season of No Bowls for awhile would wake them up. Then again the Students and Alums woudl pay for the increase ticket prices. not the wealthy faculty and Alums.

No ptofessor is making $800K, and there would be no university without them but there could easily be one without the athletic program -- let the big money makers donate money to the university, they can afford it better than the rest of us.

car allowances are unfortunately a part of higher level positions in many fields. i think it's ridiculous... neither osu, college football, or state universities are exclusive to this.

No wonder there is such corruption, with this kind of money and fringe benefits floating around. No donations will be coming from me to such an organization.

Kudos to the reporter for shining a light on this abuse of the public trust.
