Mike Rice out at Rutgers after a video of him throwing basketballs and him swearing/insults at the players. I have to say on the one hand I'm not surprised as there is a lot of pressure to win even at the college level. On the hand it was still a shock to actually see it.
I'm a student at Rutgers right now (currently a freshman). The general feeling up here (besides "fuck the media... go away") is that NO ONE HERE CARED. The players came out in support of him.
This news coverage has actually managed to force out the AD as well. The same AD that got us into the B10. Once again, ESPN gets its way with media bullying.
Oh how's that Auburn thing ESPN? Haven't mentioned it in two days? I'm sure you don't play favorites.
If the media can run someone like Bobby Knight out of town with his amazing record. Then they certainly can do the same for a little pissant coach with a losing record. He brought it on himself.
Agree with you about the AD though. Stupid move.

Operation Red Wing
5 players in the last few years did transfer out of Rutgers that has to tell you something. I agree I don't think the AD should have gotten fired I also don't think the coach should have gotten fired just because he already gotten is punishment for the crime and when the Media came picking at it is when they (Rutgers) decided to fire him pretty gimp if you ask me.
SOOOOOOOOOOO. Those NCAA Finals.

If you think there's an 'e' in "ridiculous" or an 'a' in "definitely" I probably won't read the rest of your post.
Happy Birthday, Bill Self. I didn't even know Kansas was in the running for Wiggins.
My hunter is the genetic love child of Liam Neeson, the Dos Equis guy and Chuck Norris. You lose.
