Embattled Incoming Rutgers AD Julie Hermann Speaks – Looking Forward to June 17
June 5, 2013

by Kent Sterling What should have been a time of glee and excitement for incoming athletic director Julie Hermann became something else entirely when Rutgers University’s slapdash vetting work got a boost from the Neward Star-Ledger. The perfect candidate became quite flawed as some rudimentary journalistic shaking of trees dislodged some fruit that landed on […]

Rutgers Athletics – Would Anyone Care If Julie Hermann Was Hired Anywhere Else?
May 31, 2013

by Kent Sterling Dan Dakich is a great radio host because his genuine curiosity evokes answers that lead to unique opinions.  I spent 90-minutes with Dan today in the 1070 the Fan studio, and he asked me about Rutgers.  The most interesting part of the discussion dealt with journalistic weasels – my term, not Dan’s […]

Pernetti is the guy who chose expedience and convenience over […]

Mike Rice Will Be Fired Today by Rutgers “Leader” Tim Pernetti
April 3, 2013

by Kent Sterling Doing what’s right doesn’t matter a damn to most administrators, and Rutgers athletic director Tim Pernetti said as much yesterday.  The right thing would have been to fire basketball coach Mike Rice as soon as anyone with the authority to do so saw the videotape showing physical and verbal abuse the first […]
