I'm shocked, but seeing this makes me think if a class Basketball program like UCLA is willing to hire him, it is seeming more and more that he had less control over the Pierce thing that we even thought. I have to believe that UCLA wouldn't have hired him unless they were convinced that he didn't create that cess pool over in eastern Iowa. Seems like a lot of evidence that it was the sleasy administration over there all along.
I don't know about Alford, but sleazy administration...you betcha. If you're interested, read the whole story about Peter Gray (athletics academic advisor). My summary: He got ran out of town in the past rather than deal with his actions, then because they didn't write anything down so they couldn't get caught, he got rehired later on because no one knew. He was trading football tickets for sexual favors, coming on to students, all sortsa skeezy crap. He 'resigned for personal reasons'.
So they fire a guy in Howland who took them past the first round of the tournament multiple times, and go out and hire Alford who couldn't make it past the first round of the tournament at Iowa or New Mexico despite being a 3 seed twice. Makes sense.
