How much do you think the buyout would need to drop for the BoT to find it worthwhile?This is partly true. Franklin holds most of the cards, not all. The administration can make his life miserable to the point where he leaves on his own or does something very stupid and can be terminated for cause, and at that point, the contract is worthless. Either way, WE ARE BETTER!!!
Sadly, those are the most realistic options for moving forward as a program, and both take years to accomplish. More likely, we'll end up winning 7 or 8 games a year for the next seven or eight seasons while the administration waits for the buyout to drop low enough to make firing him worthwhile.
Those people are real timid when it comes to spending money, right?
How fast could they raise the sum if they agreed to trade renaming Beaver Stadium to Paterno Stadium for boosters to supply the buyout?
