“While Rutgers might have trouble this winter finding the money to heat its dorms and classrooms, it continues to pour millions into its football and basketball facilities. There’s no better way for the taxpayer-funded state school to impress out-of-state recruits, many of whom, if not for football or basketball, would be far too academically deficient to be accepted to Rutgers….Sick, ain’t it? ”
That’s a snippet from today’s Phil Mushnick column in the New York Post, a scathing attack on Rutgers and its push into big-time sports.
Read Mushnick, he hits this nail directly on the head.
If Mushnick gets you angry, find plenty of laughs in this booster thread attacking Mushnick. The words posted by hardcore RU fans in defense of the program usually prove the opposite — but at least they are (unintentionally) funny.
