Well this should draw some interest and commentary, perhaps not as much as the Calipari-Izzo comparison, but since it too is based primarily on opinion affords much opportunity.
Joan Niesen of Fox Sports North provides the details and makes her own judgment:
What's most interesting, though, are Smith's bonuses. They're greater than even Kentucky's John Calipari's, and for a reason. Such bonuses should be weighted in terms of their likelihood, and Calipari poses a strong threat to earn them. Smith, at least in the near term, is a longer shot, and the contract represents an implicit statement that the university is willing to pay through the nose for success if it's possible. Smith hasn't necessarily earned a guaranteed pay raise, but he has warranted the chance to make big money if he can take his team farther than he yet has since he came to Minnesota.
