Unbelievably, Rutgers is going to try to wiggle, slime, and lie their way through the whole Hermann mess. Now the University administration is playing "blame the victim" - maybe the TCC guy ought to pull Barchi aside . . . When can we dump her and go back to following Eddie Jordan's basketball rebuild?? Or the Scarlet Knights' last Big East season?
In our interview, Harmon talks about his pre-draft experiences, such as his Pro Day to his former and current Rutgers teammates to how his time has been so far with the Patriots organization.
It never ends, as Julie Hermann was at the center of ANOTHER scandal at Louisville. She not only needs to be fired or forced to resign, she should have never been picked. This is easily the worst athletic director selection in DI history.
The National Association of Collegiate Women Athletic Administrators are offering unwavering support of Julie Hermann, in spite of the fact that multiple former Hermann players at Tennessee having taken to the airwaves in opposition to Hermann's consistent pattern of verbal abuse. Apparently to the NACWAA, treating women with respect and dignity is not a core component of feminism.
Fred Hill Sr. is quietly leading the Scarlet Knights baseball team to impressive wins in the Big East tournament. Up next is UConn on Saturday. 97 days left until Rutgers kickoff.
A former NYC guard will transfer to the Scarlet Knights after a year at Iowa State. Okoro's story is a tragic one after losing both his brother and his father last year. Okoro's story is the classic case of what the hardship waiver is for. Currently, if all goes to plan, Rutgers has 9 players on scholarship for next season.
Sean Frazier of Wisconsin. Julie Hermann of Louisville. And. Thomas Boeh of Fresno State. Frazier should be the overall favorite, right? Click the link for more.
One of the top remaining uncommitted players, a power forward out of the DC area, committed to Eddie Jordan and Rutgers. At this late stage, this is a huge pick-up for the Scarlet Knights, who are trying to rebuild their roster after several transfers (including Jerome Seagears who announced he'd be going to Auburn). Etou has plenty of potential. The only setback are rumors he may have some trouble qualifying. Things continue to look up for the Scarlet Knights under Eddie Jordan.
Gotta resist the urge to throw a brick at the screen when Barf-key is talking. The idiot. But Jordan is GREAT!! Go RU!
Ray Lesniak is probably the most prominent Rutgers alumnus in the New Jersey legislature along with John Wisnewski in the assembly. As of tonight, Lesniak is the first prominent New Jersey politician to call for Tim Pernetti's reinstatement as athletic director. As unrealistic (but deserved) as the possibility may be, at least someone is standing up for reason now. Steve Sweeney and Sheila Oliver deserve all the scorn that they can get as the public face of Pernetti's unfair ouster two weeks ago, but as Chris Carlin recounted, Governor Christie deserves plenty of blame as well. He promised Pernetti the world, and went back on his word when the going went rough. If Christie stands up for Pernetti, Tim would still be in charge as we speak. Regardless, Sen. Lesniak as in for a tough re-election fight this year in the Democratic primary in the 20th district (which includes Elizabeth and Union.) Given his courageous actions here, all Rutgers fans who live in that district owe it to themselves to vote for him this year. At the same time, Andy Sisti (the public face of the reinstatement campaign) should try to go after a few other politicians. Wisnewski obviously, and two senators in Dick Codey and Kip Bateman are prominently on the record as big Rutgers football fans, so they are probably at least worth a ring as well.
