Yeah, it's official. The downward spiral of WSU coaches continues. It is hard to believe that Mike Leach now makes 5 mil per year. How many brilliant college students could you graduate in a year for 5 mil? The coaching system in this country is as fucked up as the CEO system where CEO's can make over 350X more than their workers. College has become about football, not education, the tail is wagging the dog.

Job is to lead and teach, not just try and win games. Bad example and a real cop-out answer if he was using that only for this situation-and it appears so.

Gruden needs to slide into Pullman on his knees, kissing feet (to start)

Gruden is done. Rolovich can find a job in Texas or Florida or a few other
States . Let’s just hope this delta plus variant, as it has been labeled, is not worse then original delta. Personally I don’t like the plus added to it.

The whole WSU coach thing boggles my mind. The guy seemed to have it all. He had his chance, making serious bank, doing darn good with his team... What a crazy decision.

Oh. I kinda wonder if a lawsuit be forthcoming. We will see. In meantime, don’t believe wash state had any other choice. I don’t think Wazuu had any other choice. Just weird times.

The idea the football coach on (any/most) campus thinking he can stand up and be the biggest dog does not surprise me at all. "Can't push me around !" One reason I never played football. Out of control ego testosterone in our small town coaching staff is my personal example, and I know it is not an isolated case.

I recall the first day of PE class as a 12 year-old 7th grader. Our school was grades 7-12. The head football coach a-hole was our teacher. First day, remember. He had a big chew in his lip, swore freely right along the lines of Gruden, then took a giant wooden hack paddle and destroyed a metal stand up locker in some show of rage/act/folly. Not sure.

Yeah, really impressive work. Got shit-canned the next year after 15 years at the school. Replaced by another jerk.

There goes the highest paid Washington State employee. Plus three asst. coaches. Wonders how much of his contract money he gets to keep.

For the most part at least here in Washington, athletic departments get very little if any money from the state.
So whatever they decide to pay their head coach really isn’t taking away from education.

I remember when Joe Paterno was under pressure to resign from Penn State, saying something that amounted to "I'll leave when I am good and ready." I want to be clear that I am not quoting him, but to me it just reeked of arrogance and don't tell me what to do, I'll tell you what to do.

Nicky found religion a little too late! After the Stanford game he said he had “faith” that things would work out. Bet he’s lost all faith in his new found religion. Shame he had to take down four of his assistants with him.

Nobody told me there'd be days like these...strange days indeed. John Lennon.

I'm sure I'll take some criticism for what I'm about to write but oh well. I'm sure folks will rationalize it to suite their beliefs but whatever. I'm not advocating one way or the other but it seems to me our societal values are changing, some for the better and some for the worse in my opinion. As I've witnessed the events transpiring over the last 18 months or so, I just shake my head at some of the things I'm seeing. For this example, I'll stick with the WSU coach since this is a college football thread.

I tend to steer clear of issues like this and I may be way off; if so, I'm sure someone will correct me. My body, my choice. Isn't that a common phrase amongst pro-choice advocates when it comes to abortion rights? I find it somewhat ironic that the state government can fire an employee for not getting vaccinated in the name of safety when there is a very high survival rate if contracting the disease. I don't know what the current mortality rate is but isn't it hovering around 1%? The mortality rate for abortions must be in the neighborhood of 100%. But in the case of the WSU coach, the phrase my body, my choice argument doesn't work on his behalf.

I'd like to see the results of a poll of people who are pro choice with the my body, my choice mentality but but are in favor of firing employees for non-vaccination compliance when statistically speaking, the survival rates for their respective cause is the exact opposite.

I'm sure someone more eloquent in writing than I can clear it up for me. Or is it a simple apples vs. oranges thing?

My last 2 cents. Many/most jobs have certain hard/no exception requirements and rules. Keith Richards could not pass the pee test to work at WSU. If you let the coach pass on the state employee mandate then you have to throw it all out.

Requirements are important. Pilots and surgeons surely get no complaints from anyone about strict requirements set forth for them.

In hopes of not derailing a good CFB thread I'll just say this: It's not just his body that is affected by not getting vaccinated. It's an airborne pathogen. He puts anybody he comes in close contact with at risk.
Your argument is akin to saying drunk driving is a my body my choice issue as well.


Now, as a Cal guy, I say FU Stanford!

@BDD no complaints from me - for sure. It is hard to make choices between the choices being offered. It is one thing for a personal choice of whether to or not to. But when it comes to a personal choice vs safety of others and those around you there that you are responsible for there are less choices.

Like it or not it comes with the territory and job.

BTW not touching the abortion. issue.
