- Little Rock, Arkansas
I’m guessing this might get brought up when Lovie gets the axe. Maybe not outright “He hired his son, who we now know is extremely unqualified, thus we can see it was a nepotism hire” but instead “He made high risk hires that were found to be in over their heads and it cost him his job.”This is the thing that really turned it up to 11 for me yesterday - Herm going into East Lansing, holding Sparty to single digits and coming out with a win. Do you know how far we are from that?
I don’t profess (or frankly, care) to know a ton about how ASU is running their program, but presumably they aren’t doing brazenly irresponsible things like “not hiring a DC” or “giving his son a really important job that he’s not qualified for.”
I’m laying a good chunk of this on Whitman, too - when Bill Cubit did this, it was (rightfully) a part of the case for his dismissal. But he’s now stood by as his guy has done the same thing.
I’d lump our new OL coach, LB coach, and DB coach all into that category.
Oh wait...who struggled again yesterday?
