A couple of words the board at Rutgers might want to re-acquaint themselves with: “due” and “diligence”.

Just weeks ago, Scarlet Knights men’s head basketball coach Mike Rice was fired for verbally and physically abusing his players during practice, in a scandal that also took down the school’s AD. Rutgers alum Eddie Jordan was hired to right the ship, only to have it come out in the press that he had never actually earned his diploma from the school.

And if that weren’t enough, recently-hired AD Julie Hermann has come under fire for insensitive statements she allegedly made when she was coaching women’s volleyball at Tennessee. Allegations that she had verbally bullied a subordinate with coercive statements about the assistant’s desire to have children surfaced, but that, as we discovered today, may only be the tip of the iceberg.

NJ.com.. published a story late on Saturday alleging that Hermann may have been Rice-like in her own behavior while at Tennessee.

When questioned yesterday this is what she is quoted as saying from the article above......

She said, "she did not remember the letter by her volleyball players..." That link, at NJ.com says that everything this AD said at the interviews were lies . .total and complete lies. Maybe Rutgers should do what the University of Chicago did.. give up conventional competitive college sports...maybe...but it won't happen.. In the 20s ..U of C was a powerhouse....no more...no more big ten..tv contracts etc. ...U of C is an educational institution...not a football/basketball stadium with some classes...

oops...............no teacher...anywhere, anytime.........would forget something like that in my opinion. no coach...no substitute.. nope ...oops....lie....good by..good by President of Rutgers too.. Here is a link on the President of Rutgers failures:
