    •  Agreed. I Am Not The Kind Of Guy That Sues (6+ / 0-)

      folks. But if I had a kid in this video. I knew the AD if not the President of the University had seen it (and who know who else), and only gave Rice a three game suspension, well I'd have a lawyer on speed dial and about to be making Rutgers write a large check.

      When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

        since they screwed the prior men's BB coach who's now at Cleveland State and installed the son of the long-time baseball coach

          Fred Hill, Jr. is an assistant coach for the Northwestern Wildcats men's basketball team. He had previously served as the head men's basketball coach at Rutgers University. His father is Rutgers baseball coach Fred Hill, Sr. and his uncle, Brian Hill is a former NBA coach.

          Hill had a 47–77 record in four years at Rutgers. He recruited and lost 12 players including Mike Rosario, the first McDonald's All American in Rutgers history.

          Despite a losing record, Hill had been told after the 2009–10 season that he would be back for a fifth season. On April 8, Pernetti told Hill he would not be allowed to return. Eventually, Hill was allowed to resign in return for an $850,000 settlement

            Thursday, March 2, 2006  Rutgers men's basketball coach Gary Waters resigned yesterday, ending a stay of more than four seasons at the school during which the Scarlet Knights failed to land a spot in the NCAA tournament.

            Waters said he signed a buyout that is worth $550,000 initially and worth "quite a bit" overall. He said he was not forced to resign, but he was aware the school was not satisfied with his performance.

            Waters, who has a 76-73 record in five seasons, came under fire after he missed Rutgers's game against Marquette on Feb. 12 after flying to Ohio the day before to be inducted into the athletic hall of fame at Kent State, where he coached from 1996 to 2001. A snowstorm delayed flights the next day. . .
