    It's my understanding that at least three players left the Rutgers program and went elsewhere, presumably because they had the skills (as well as the moxie) to do so. While that might not have caused the team to crater, it certainly could not have helped bench strength or morale.

    Interestingly, if Rutgers had gotten rid of this ineffective coach when his behavioral problems first surfaced, rather than imagining that a few sessions of anger management might have turned him around, they might have attracted a better coach, sooner.

    Doubling down on failing methods rarely leads to optimal outcomes.

    Those who do not understand history are condemned to repeat it... in summer school.

      they were trying to get an invitation to join the Big 10 and didn't want the conference kicking over too many rocks.  

      I don't know what the Big 10 sees in Rutgers and Maryland - it just weakens the conference, breaks up good rivalries, and the schools aren't really good fits with the midwestern vibe of the rest of the conference. They already get a televised conference championship game by virtue of adding Nebraska.  Rutgers to the ACC might have made sense, but not at the expense of Louisville.

      Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
