I don't think I had considered this, but you are right. The phrase is meant to imply there was never any love there in the first place to be lost. By saying there is no love lost for the Utah staff or whatever, he's saying I never loved them to begin with. Astute observation All4SUWhere do kids get this “there is no love lost” phrase? I’ve seen it used three or four times - incorrectly each time.
It's right up there with telling us to respect their decision. No. I will determine what is worthy of my respect. Respect is earned not inherited. That, and the improper use of the word "literally". For example..."It was literally raining cats and dogs out there."
