SEC: Nick Saban’s salary soars; Vandy’s Luke Kornet


Big SEC football news over the weekend was Alabama’s Nick Saban agreeing to a contract extension that will pay the football coach what is believed to be close to if not $7 million a year. As the Birmingham News reports, that’s more than some Division I athletic budgets.

In basketball, Missouri improved to 10-0 on Sunday. The Tigers are the league’s only unbeaten team. Meanwhile, the Tennessean has a feature on 7-footer Luke Kornet, son of former Lexington Catholic star Frank Kornet.

And if you’re looking ahead to this week’s SEC basketball schedule, there’s a good one Tuesday night when Florida meets Memphis in New York.
