Alleva Update!

Chris Kennedy has been named interim A.D. after Joe Alleva resigned to take the LSU job. Meanwhile, Alleva continues his unfortunate habit of saying things which are poorly considered. Only a few days out of Durham, and he says this: "We might have 500 to 1,000 at our spring games. And most of those were girlfriends and family."

Wow, some of those guys have lots of girlfriends.

He also says "I'm a football guy. One of my biggest disappointments at Duke was that we couldn't get the football program going." Okay, Alleva says he's a football guy, and granted, he wasn't solely responsible for the state of the football program. But if he was such a big football guy, you'd think he could have found some better candidates to hire. Those were his decisions, and he's responsible for them.
