That is some serious dough for such young kids to be making, hope they keep their heads about them when they get that first paycheck.

Indiana has to feel pretty stupid. They could have picked up Tyler Hansbrough later than 13 and probably not paid him nearly as much as $6M they are on the hook for...

Not at all, 2M a year is a bargain any way you look at it.
