Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
I always hated that show anyways.
This is a great opportunity for Hermann, but it could also be a "career-killer" if she isn't careful. Rutgers is moving up to a conference that may be a bit beyond their abilty to compete in major sports. They have had a lot of upheaval there. Hermann is taking over a program that is not only facing its biggest challenge ever, but facing it while trying to rebuild conficence in its commitment to ethical behavior.
In five years, she will either be a hero or a very high-profile failure. I hope she succeeds, as long as Rutgers never, ever beats Michigan.
It will be interesting to see if the increased revenue from being in the Big10 supersedes the amount they'll lose as fan interest wanes in a team that will inevitably get its ass handed to it on the regular.
Is she hot?
Nope. Maybe in the past...
Michigan is in town, in which case I hope her first reaction becomes one of looking for a hiding place.
Not sure she is tan enough for NJ.
The bigger story to come from this article is the fact Debbie Yow is still an AD. She is an idiot.
I wonder why there are only two (now 3) female ADs in the BCS? Maybe because the other two are trainwrecks? Sandy Barbour totally botched the football stadium renovation project to a laughable degree, and Debbie Yow is, well Debbie Yow (if unfamiliar, google for a good laugh).
Hermann just took easily the hardest job in major college athletics and is taking over after an absolute mess of a scandal.
It'd be nice if one of these seldom appointed female ADs could be, ya know, competent. Good luck Julie!
