Does anyone have the backstory explaining why that POS Alleva was hired to be AD?
After what he did at Duke? He hung the Lacrosse team out to dry even after exculpatory evidence had come forth. A real low life to whom we owe thanks for our current head coach.

It was a disgusting hire.

IIRC, he was known as a “budget guru”

Clearly PR and relationships weren’t his specialty

Admins wanted a malleable puppet that they could control

He came from a basketball school too and his first two hires were Trent Johnson and Johnny Jones

I’ve always wondered that and have never really got an answer. I mean he was toxic at that time and out of nowhere we inexplicably hired him.

The board moved on President Lombardis glowing recommendation at that time. Terrible decision by all

I lived in NC at that time when that Lacrosse crap happened. I was beside myself when LSU Hired Alleva. I was calling everyone I knew of that was a donor and asking what the hell are we doing!

I can see the logic behind that one. Took Nevada and Stanford to the Sweet 16.

Alleva's claim to fame was massively fricking up.
So, naturally LSU hired him.

I hate that this douche ever represented LSU, but I am thankful he is now removed.

What he did to that Duke coach was wrong. He gave him an ultimatum to resign or be fired over false allegations. He should have stood by his coach until any actual wrongdoing was proven.

Handling the duke situation the way he did should have gotten him blackballed from ever being an AD

The only thing that would’ve made him any worse is if he stole an avatar for himself

His worst crime was letting Florida’s AD screw us out of a home game *AND* painting us as the uncaring villains while they sent their women’s volleyball team directly into the hurricane

Florida smelled blood in the water and he couldn’t have screwed that situation up any harder if he tried

I would really like to know. I guess there are no enterprising "investigative journalists" who are interested in the real story about how the buffoon came to be the current LSU head football coach.
