07:16 AM ET 05.27 | Rutgers President Robert Barchi, who endured the Mike Rice scandal and may have another on his hands in Julie Hermann, has had a tough few months. [Barchi] should have been fired along with [Tim Pernetti] and Rice, the basketball coach who shamed Rutgers the way he did. Now comes this fine reporting in the Newark Star-Ledger from Craig Wolff. ... Wolff contacted former players of Hermann's, and learned about the damning letter they all signed about her 16 years ago. If Barchi knew about that letter and hired Hermann anyway, he should be terminated for that. If Barchi didn't know, then he should be fired for the same negligence he showed after being made aware of Rice's behavior and doing nothing for months.

Hey-sus Raza...

If they fire every coach that was "mean" to their players there wouldn't be any coaches left...at any level in any sport.

Still waiting for Gene Smith and EGG to be shown the door, but Teflon seems to work very well in C-bus.

Good one.

Enough of the witch-hunts already. Rutgers isn't the only university in the country that's got a bunch of **** running the programs. If they were national champions nobody would bring this crap up.

They have to ditch Hermann. You can't clean up an abusive program with someone who has a history of inflicting abuse. She will have no credibility. Especially when she will not accept or admit responsibility for her own actions.
