You can't blame this guy for taking what's being reported as a 5-year deal worth $15M in guaranteed money.
No, you can't walk away from that offer... I certainly wouldn't!
But you CAN blame
- Dan Guerrero for:
- Throwing $15M at what would appear to be, on paper, a terrible hire.
- Reinforcing a new culture of failure in Westwood.
- Throwing the students at Pauley under the bus
- Throwing the alumni and boosters under the bus
- Bringing in a coach who has a track record of doing the same to his players and assistants
You can blame Chancellor Block for
- Failing to understand that the Bruin bond is strongest when our revenue sports WIN
- Failing to fire Chianti Dan
- Taking a torch to the entire Bruin athletic department, because when FB and BB fail, the non-revenue sports do even worse.
So, no. I can't hate Jim Mora for being DG's guy. But there are plenty of avenues to direct my anger towards. I'll wait to hate on Mora after next year, when we lose to all the other high-profile hires in the Pac-12.
