I know the baseball team is having a bad year with injuries and pitching, but since Alleva has been here I have seen a decline in LSU athletics as a whole, or have our expectations reached a level that can't be sustained?

There's nothing he has done in terms of hiring that has been a bad move at all. I don't see how you can blame any struggles our teams have had on him. He didn't hire Les, Mainieri is probably the best in the business, and Trent is one of the best coaches in the SEC.
I dont post on here enough to really care anymore, but my neighbor who is a big contributing alumni has not been happy with him and he is given him a year before he starts to get very angry, I just never thought he was a good fit for the school athletic wise, maybe academic, but that does not bring the money into LSU

we won a championship in baseball last year. we lost a lot of great players from that team who got us there so we gonna slip up some time. And basketball we lost thornton, temple and jackson. and in football we have started young inexperienced qbs the last 2 years. your an idiot
Sorry Stevo, I just disagree- I do not think it is a coincidence that most of our money-making sports are not performing where they should be- I think we should all be concerned. I have wondered why we hired Alleva in the first place when there were more experienced LSU people in line wanting the job.

that's why I presented two sides to the argument, what I get from him is a lack intensity that Skip had, but at the same time I think my expectations have been spoiled, I really didn't agree with my neighbor.
