No matter what you think of the job Randy Spetman has done in his four years at Florida State, as major college athletic directors go the guy is underpaid. His $350,000 salary isn't chump change to most of us, but look how he compares to his contemporaries.
Only one A.D. in the state makes less than Spetman. No surprise that the gator A.D. is paid like a Fortune 500 exec. But check out the guys Spetman takes a back seat to.
UF - Jeremy Foley $1,545,250
USF - Doug Woolard $479,686
FIU - Pete Garcia $421,116
UCF - Keith Tribble $365,580
FSU - Randy Spetman $350,000
Florida Atlantic - Craig Angelos $192,456
Miami did not disclose the salary of A.D. Shawn Eichorst
Spetman is practically low man on the A.C.C. totem pole. Some of these don't make a lot of sense. Or maybe a few of these A.D.'s have compromising pictures of their school's president.

How does he compare to the Big 12 A.D.'s? If FSU makes the switch, Spetman would fall in near the bottom -- just like the A.C.C.
