At last week's media day, while talking with the press Eddie Jordan talked about the need for new facilities. He's is only the 3rd coach in the past ten years to do so*.
(*Maybe 4th. Not sure if Gary Waters brought it up as well.)
In an interview with Steve Politi and others, Jordan talked about needing the RAC to be improved. He said he felt he needed to apologize to other coaches for the opposing locker room. That when he talks to other coaches, and hears what those coaches get, he realizes how far behind Rutgers basketball is. And Jordan practically begged Julie Hermann to get moving on improving those facilities.
"Look, there's a vision from my new AD. Is it the fourth or fifth vision in the last 15-20 years? Maybe it is. I'm being realistic. Maybe it is. But that's where we are.
"We all have faith and belief that Julie has the connections, the willpower and the motivation. Now, can we get it done? That's the only way you can believe it. You have to be on board with it and see, we have faith in her to get it done. Part of it is, we're in the best conference, finally, and this is part of getting it done. This is the last step of getting it done."
