Richard Lipsey dropping bombs on LSU leadership
quote:

Both King Alexander and Joe Alleva were hired during the Jindal Administration. The new leadership at the Board of Supervisors has inherited this problem. They now must act quickly to remove Alexander and Alleva. This should be followed by the appointment of a strong interim LSU President and interim LSU Athletic Director not interested in a permanent position and the hiring of proven Flagship quality leaders through a national search.

Interesting angle. I completely forgot that both Alexander and Alleva were appointed by the dumpster fire known as the Jindal Administration. Just another reason to can those clowns

re: Richard Lipsey dropping bombs on LSU leadership
I 100% blame Jindals BOS for the hiring of Fking and Alleva but do we honestly want this frick stick Williams hiring the next President and AD?

It’s just a shite cycle over and over agin until we get a competent Governor who can appoint strong competent leaders. Leaders that actually have ties with LSU and consider its best interests.

re: Richard Lipsey dropping bombs on LSU leadership
quote:

The latest example of Alexander's lack of leadership was the bizarre Alexander and Alleva joint official press release stating that holding out basketball player Javonte Smart “does not suggest, in any way wrongdoing”. Then what does it suggest? Why was it done? Clearly these folks are not ready to handle public relations for a high school, much less a internationally known Flagship. Sadly, there has just been so much more, and it’s time to end it now. In sports alone we have seen the disastrous leaked courting of Jimbo Fisher followed by the joint Alexander/Alleva bizarre 3rd quarter "unfiring" of Les Miles, the embarrassing Tom Herman football offer debacle, unnecessary and costly extensions and raises to several underperforming coaches and so much more. The incompetence has lead to dissatisfaction from major sports and academic donors that has severely affected fundraising. Only a few years ago LSU chancellor O' Keefe raised 786 million on behalf of LSU. The current leadership has reduced that to a relative trickle.

Seems like he is using this situation, which he clearly does not have a firm grasp on, to throw shade at politicians

Laws need to be changed to get corrupt dirty-ass Louisiana politics away from LSU. Otherwise this shite is just going to keep happening.

Have alumni and the University select the President and BOS members.
