Salaries for game plans vs. lesson plans

From ESPN's Web site

Thanks to UF beat reporter Nathan Crabbe for helping us put our salaries in perspective — with Urban Meyer’s salary. In his blog, The Chalkboard, Crabbe tells of the ESPN site that lets you determine how many years you will need to work to earn what Meyer makes in one season. [You also can compare your salary to the salaries of professional athletes.]

The average salary of a new faculty member in my college (College of Journalism and Communications) is $55,000. I typed in that amount.

The answer?

A new faculty member making $55,000 a year would need to work 72.73 years to earn Meyer’s salary for one year.

I’m thinking of yards gained in one season versus papers graded in 72.73 years.
