New Hampshire really loves hockey


Thanks to Deadspin for this very interesting infograph detailing the nation’s highest-paid public employees. The states whose highest-paid employee is the basketball coach reads like a who’s who of elite college basketball programs, and, predictably, the rest of the country puts more of an emphasis on football. Except for New Hampshire, who really, really loves hockey, and Connecticut, who is so afraid of being goosed by Geno Auriemma that they keep throwing money at him.

    An excellent commentary on the overarching moral value system of the nation.

    When you consider these coaches bring in a lot of money it makes sense that get paid more than a government worker who sits at a desk looking at spreadsheets or delivering mail

    Florida is kinda surprising that the basketball coach is the highest paid.

    I know Nevada women are faker than silicone tits with plastic nipples, but the highest paid state-employees are plastic surgeons? Geesh.

    @ 3 & 6. Yeah, that one just jumps off the page at you. Billy D, you’ve done good for yourself, especially considering the UF fanbase lack of support. The other surprise was CA until I remembered that’s the state that spends money their residents don’t have and asks for nothing in return.

    Just wondering whether Cal is actually a public employee. Wasn’t he hired by the UK Athletics Association, which was not formally a part of the University of Kentucky? Pretty sure his salary does not come from tax dollars. Then again, the UKAA Board of Directors disbanded last year, and now the UK Board of Trustees oversees athletics. So maybe he’s a university employee after all. Anyone know for sure? These are the kinds of technicalities that seem to be important only when a lawsuit is filed, as Billy G. knows all too well.
