Watching the 30 for 30 on Duke - how the hell did LSU hire Alleva?

Guy was an absolute shite show but LSU was like "that's our guy"

How did ge get hired at LSU?

It was stupid then, and even crazier now. I don’t remember anybody liking the hire.

Such a clown

At least Wade made him look like a dumbass and got him fired.

I don’t know how but I’m just thankful we survived the Joe Alleva and F King Alexander era

I hate so much that Alleva represented LSU in any capacity. What he did to that coach was wrong. Forced him to resign or be fired.

Alleva sucks but the Duke thing wasn’t on him. The freaking DA orchestrated that witch hunt. His hands were tied.

Nope. Mike Nifong illegally trumped up the charges (and was criminally charged), but nobody forced Alleva to cancel mens Lacrosse and fire the coach without due process. That was all on him and will always be all on him. In a perfect world he would have to pay some type of punitive restitution to the people he injured.

If you have an out of control DA like Nifong out for blood, you absolutely nuke the men's lacrosse program to shield your bread and butter sports. 110% the right move.

That’s not true at all. The coach resigned and the president cancelled the season.

Again, Alleva sucks, but he was way down the list of people who fricked that up

I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree. I don’t believe anybody, ever, should be penalized without due process. That goes for Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Hunter Biden, Justice Kavanaugh, George Floyd and it goes for the Duke Lacrosse coach. Everybody counts or nobody counts.

I suppose I could be labeled as a simpleton who believes in the principles laid out in constitution. That’s an insult I can live with.

I agree. While Alleva does deserve some blame for the Duke Lacrosse thing most of it was done above his head. Which is actually one of the problems with him as an AD. He was basically a yes man for the President at LSU too.

The incompetence of university administrators is at the same level as the federal government. They are the idiots that aren’t suited to work in private industry
