Archie was tough... I was amazed at the beating he took game after game after game... avg 21 carries per game... #8 on all-time rushing attempts in the B1G... he was small but Woody used his best weapons.

The damage they do is real. There aren't enough recreational hunters... in some states there are open seasons all year long but it still isn't enough. Going out a weekend a month won't cut it. People have jobs and families... not enough free time. In states where there are huge problems, they should incentivize... put a bounty on ferals to motivate people to spend more time on it. It's always going to cost money to get a handle on these types of problems, but property owners are motivated to invest, and local governments could offer some form of tax credits to offset. They could turn a negative into a positive by using the meat... which is delicious by the way... to help feed the area's less-fortunate.  I was helping a buddy of mine on his parents' ranch in NE NM. We were fixing water lines feeding a network of drinkers. That weekend his brother killed a feral boar and brought it back to the house. Filthy, stinky, loaded with ticks... skinned and butchered it. His mom started cooking some of the meat in her oven... at first it smelled just awful... came back later that afternoon and the entire house smelled amazing... that meat was top quality. Would make for a hell of a tailgate...

How do you determine someone is overpaid? Having an opinion is one thing, but the reality is the market drives those salaries. The market doesn't have a conscience, but it is self-regulating through competition. People have every right to earn whatever someone is willing to pay for their services. Urban and Tress were worth every penny, just for beating michigan year after year. Of course, that's just my opinion... which is only an opinion. But I had no problem with however much they or their coaches earned. In fact, upon looking at the above salaries, my first thought was they need to give coach Johnson a significant raise.

Don't blame the earners for their high salaries. If anyone is to blame, it's the fans. I haven't been to a game at the Shoe since the 1970's... I can only imagine how expensive it is. But they sell out... which means there is demand for the product. I know there are plenty who are willing to fork out 40 bucks for a regular-season MLB ticket, 9 bucks for a pint of beer, 4 bucks for a 10oz bag of peanuts and 4 bucks for a bottle of water. The fans vote with their wallets. They're the ultimate arbiters of athletic contracts.
