The Augusta Chronicle on Rutgers coach:

One of them just couldn't read the tea leaves. The other didn't even try.

When a video surfaced last fall showing Rutgers University men's basketball coach Mike Rice repeatedly abusing his players verbally and physically in practice — violent shoves, kicks, hard-thrown basketballs, profane slurs — the athletic director watched it. The president of the university did not. Both inexplicably — but conveniently — agreed to let the coach quietly stay on.

When the video became public this week, Coach Rice was an easy termination. Athletic Director Tim Pernetti followed shortly. What's keeping university President Robert L. Barchi? He had ultimate responsibility for this outrage.

How dare they allow student athletes to be treated worse than rented mules - while living high off the money those kids make the school? What a disgrace.
