I don't even have to listen.

"We talked about a lot of things we needed to do, but it didn't happen, so that's disappointing."

"We practiced really well, maybe the best all season, but it didn't show up in the game, so that's was a disappointment."

Am I close?

Not far off. I only listen to like 10 seconds of it. He admitted that he's lost the locker room though.

Uh, wow. That's instant firing material tbh, but I appreciate the honesty.

Looked like he was close to crying; also looked like he didn't want to be there. All of them just want this season to be over.

Maybe the look on Rhoades' face plus losing the locker room may generate an imminent "announcement"? I dunno.

He'll cry all the way to the bank with his paycheck that's more than most people make in a year

Do you think it was really great to see you all? It didn't seem like he was happy to be there and I'm not even sure he appreciated the question.

One thing that confuses me is that he always says the team didn't quit. I agree. But they also didn't seem to care about D1 athletics until midway through the 4th quarter so the came was over before there was time to quit. Why not just say that?

"It's a sad, frustrated, and broken locker room…"

You're Fired. For cause. Clear out your office and be gone by sundown Monday.

Did I Miss something? I don't recall him saying he's lost the locker room.

There was one question where Dave's answer was about potatoes or at least that's all I got from it. But he said he appreciated it 3 times during his response.

My favorite part was when he said "appreciate that", forgot he said it, and then doubled down to say it again while answering the coaches question.

Wash, rinse, repeat.

1. Frustrated locker room
2. Not executing
3. We saw some improvement
4. Appreciate that…blah blah blah
5. Have - more games to play to implement what we are learning in practice.

Mack has to find the money. Get this guy out of here.

Mack is more likely looking for a landing spot for himself.

Started with chopping wood b Kevin Steele 2.0. Team is losing on Steele level. Locker room broken. Time for coaching staff change. Bowl game talk ?.

No coach will ever outright admit that. They enjoy getting those fat weekly paychecks. But when you say stuff like "it's a sad, broken locker room", that's the closest thing to an admission you will get.

Maybe Mack is waiting for us to not have a chance at bowl eligibility before he lets Dave go.

Actually, it's more than most people will make in their lifetime. Hopefully, there is a penalty clause in the contract that reduces the amount of payoff based on the team's win/loss record and/or performance on the field. .
If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

Replay the first minute of his diatribe.

Technically we can win out and make a bowl. I'm just suggesting that waiting until a bowl is technically impossible would give Mack the out of saying he didn't prematurely give up on this team.

Soooo, technically, with a guaranteed loss this coming Saturday with KsSt eliminating any Bowl Rhoades would be "safe" in announcing Aranda being relieved of HC duties?

Or a lifetime. I'd love to have a gig where I could get a suitcase full of money, that would set me for life, for what? For sucking at my job? Must be nice. Heck, if I were him I'd want to be fired. Sitting out on a beach vs an angry fan base. I'll take the former.
No need to feel bad for the CDA once he's gone, he and his family will be alright.

That blew me away. That is the start of the end. Every kid that can play somewhere else will enter portal. The ones that can't but want degree will stay. It is going to get worse. This experiment is over, person over player, NIL equity, and all the other soft stuff is done. Time to be a football coach again. Sorry, football requires harshness, toughness and ruthlrssnrss, it is the nature of the beast.

If Dave is staying because of his contract, he needs to clean house and go back to being DC personality, not Dad to the team. Bring in old school guys and admit the caring experiment is a bust. Do FCA when you retire.
