Because the AD fired the whistle blower and only gave the coach a fine and a suspension. Rutgers is a state school. I doubt Christie will put up with this.
Video of Rutgers basketball coach abusing players.
it would probably go something like ths: "oh [player's name here], please go to the top of the key. gracious and jimminey snap crackers, we have got to get there before the defender or there could be trouble. got it? good. after practice maybe you could draw me a little mural about how this shift-diamond-rotating-3-up exchange should look on the court, okay?"
Unbelievable. This is who we're inviting into the Big Ten? Eff that. I am disgusted. First with that asshat coach. Next with his asshat bosses the AD and president. And third with the Big Ten for lowering our standards to this level. Thanks so much, it's great to be a fan of the Big Ten. It just means nothing any longer except Big Money. Now its just the B$G to me. WTF. Thanks Brandon, guess the bottom line rules. This sucks.
If you can't teach your sport without acting or talking like a complete idiot, let alone an abusive bully then there is no place in the profession for you!
I can understand grabbing a player by the jersey to move him to a position or being physical in a basketball way to teach something, but this video shows none of the that. Even when he grabs the jersey of one of the players it doesn't appear to be to move him to a position but more rather to pull him toward his own face at which point he calls him names.
How is anything that he does in that video remotely related to teaching players how to play the game of basketball better? The video says not much and his record at Rutgers says, not much as well.
I will be pretty dissapointed if Delaney does not force the issue and call for a clean sweep from the AD down to the towel boys!
Nothing wrong with pushing a player into position but rice did it with violence and anger which is unacceptable. I'm sorry if your coach did the same thing but it's 2013 and we don't do that in a civilized country anymore.
Rumor is he's sacked. Twitter being weird adn can't paste proper
RT @DanWetzel RT @BrendanPrunty: Mike Rice met today with Tim Pernetti. End is only a matter of hours now: http://t.co/axx5mXWMu1
It's not a surprise that he's gone. Similar coaches who have done similar things have also met the same fate. They're college kids. Leave them alone.
Lou Holth was on talking about the topic, and he said to criticize the play, not the player.
