Rejecting a McCormick Invitation

An alumnus shares how he responded to a recent invite from Richard McCormick.



Ms. Giardina,

Will there be an announcement that Rutgers has stopped the stupid, extravagant, unnecessary $100 million stadium expansion and will be terminating the position of Robert Mulcahy?

I would certainly come to that event but, frankly, until such announcements are made it will be very difficult for me to support Rutgers University.  I have supported Rutgers (to varying extents, depending on my ability) for many years but that is coming to a halt.  Between the millions Mulcahy has wasted (and didn’t he know he was being given a do-nothing job at Rutgers after he was booted out of NJSEA?) and the featherbedding in top positions with Corzine cast-offs and Trenton bloodsuckers (from LaRue to Bryant), it is difficult to see how one would want to pour more money into the open sewer that Rutgers has become.

Of course I nonetheless wish Doug Greenberg the very best in his position as Dean of SAS.  I don’t believe I knew him during our mutual time on the Banks but I have friends who did and they speak highly of him.  It is wonderful to see folks with real ties to Rutgers coming in as leaders and we can hope that Dean Greenberg will join the voices in speaking against the continued waste of many millions of dollars on “smalltime” football and men’s basketball.
