Yet another member of Greedy Greg Schiano’s much lauded 2009 recruiting class seems to be hopping off Shady’s Sinking Ship, per the Ledger — defensive tackle Malcolm Bunche told Rivals.com he was “re-opening” the recruiting process. Rutgers boosters of course are stunned.
That makes Bunche the third “commit” to reconsider as Greedy Greg’s coaching inadequacies become ever more vivid. Per the Ledger: “Rutgers has already had two marquee recruits decommit, with all-purpose back Desmond Scott of Durham, N.C., opting to verbally commit to Duke instead and Immaculata High’s Mark Brazinski, rated the nation’s No. 1 center by Scout.com, reopening his recruiting after giving Rutgers a verbal.”
Watch for more to leap off this sinking ship. Even high school kids have figured out what Mulcahy III will never, Schiano can’t coach…the stadium expansion is DOA…and Rutgers is back where it belongs, among the worst teams in the Big East.
Speaking of the cockamamie stadium expansion, today’s New York Times has a long take on how the nation’s credit crisis is hammering college finances. (Wall Street Journal has a similar piece here.) Members of the Rutgers BoG may be dumb enough to think the $100 million can still be raised for the unneeded extra seating, but they will be singing solo and will watch their tin cups rust out at the bottom.
And speaking of singing…this blog yesterday was referenced in an NJ.com piece…about Bruce Springsteen.
Last note: even sports writers are taking notice of the disconnect between Greedy Greg’s outsized pay packet and his performance. Check out Rich Bozich in the Courier-Journal. Way to go Greggie, it’s always nice to see Rutgers recognized for something even if it is overpaying you!
