How does an AD who is so widely hated keep his job?
I just dont understand how Alleva can still have a job with such a large majority of the fan base holding such disdain for him. How is it that we do not have more leverage to remove him? How much more incompetence does he need to show before he's shown the door?

Sports are still turning a huge profit

B/c until the $ stops flowing in, the powers that be don't care what the fans think.

F. King, the BoS and the governor do not care about athletics.

If they fired everyone that the LSU fan base wanted fired, there would be like 5 coaches and zero administrators remaining in the whole athletic department.

Since it’s proven that the administration caves to media pressure, let’s figure out a way to make the media pressure LSU BOS to fire them.

Billboards and other very public unavoidable sights are a good start.

He makes the university money through sports. Once that declines, someone else will take his place. The uppers value money over championships.

Because the intelligent people who actually run LSU want him on the job.

The loons that inhabit the Rant have no power and nor should they.

Consider what you read on here as little more substance than howling at the moon.

One of few schools (if any) with 11 sports ranked in top 25.

As someone who has been affiliated with lsu in some capacity for a long time, I would say the "intelligent" people are becoming impossible to find

Where ever they may be, the Rant sure as hell isn't one of those places.

Because the fan base opinion doesn’t factor into his job status

Sure we dislike him, but lsu sports as a whole are playing at a level unheard of by other schools.

Realistically as fans we care about 2-3 sports. But if you look at the entire lsu athletics department LSU is pretty much second to none the last few years.

Results matter.

Because administrators in LSU's athletics department gauge fan reaction with dollars and cents.

STOP SPENDING MONEY ON LSU SPORTS!

If you love LSU and you want to see a change in leadership, this is what you must do. It's short-term pain for long-term gain.

I dont think that's true, I think the fans haven't been willing to use the full extent of our leverage because it would require sacrificing our entertainment. If those dollars weren't rolling in as quickly maybe our opinions would be taken into consideration.

And F King the particular that doesn’t believe a good athletic stature is free advertising that improves your academic applicant quality.

Emmert proved that.
