On Love

ASU fired athletic director Lisa Love today, who formerly was the women’s volleyball coach and associate A.D. at USC.
The Sun Devils won 7 NCAA titles during Love’s tenure but that proved irrelevant because football languished and basketball was also average. Football’s struggles compounded Love’s problems because the athletic dept. had problems raising money.
The other issue worth noting is that Love got hired at the height of Pete Carroll’s success. So whether or not she was qualified, USC football got her the job. Not really the best way to make a hire.

    Sounds like a strong candidate to replace Guerrero! Mediocre On Bruins!

    She’d be perfect for the ruins. USC has destroyed 2 programs with the hiring out of their affirmative action associate AD’s to gullible Pac 12 schools- Barbara Hedges to UW and Love to the Scummies!

    Don’t forget your standard white guy hires, like Daryl Gross.

    Gross would be an improvement over Fatburger Guerrero!

  • Bruin Rob

    Guerrero is awesome! He brought “MEAN & NASTY” Jim Lessa!

    I hear Elana Kagen and Sotomayor are looking for a threesome, maybe Love can join them !
