Nothing against Skip, and more power to him, but this is the reason why contract extension news is os worthless to me. It's all about generating positive publicity for the school. You go 5-7 in your second year, finish second to last in the Big East ... but hey, let's let the recruits know that Skip will be around for them.
If Skip goes 11-1 next year wins the Big East, wins a BCS and suddenly a a contending BCS school came calling, it's time for the next step. If he continues to go 5-7 and be in the bottom of the Big East, heads will roll.
Otherwise, Charlie Weis would be starting his eighth season at ND now with four more seasons awaiting.

South Florida announced a three-year contract extension for football coach Skip Holtz. His deal will run through the 2017 season.
Of course he did. I bet the transfer of Lynch helped his cause. I don't get the hype either. Did they mention the buy out clause like they never do?
