I posted this and a link to the ESPN story when it first broke nationally, before they fired him.Matilda: Love the avatar.
Everybody: Mike Rice? Some coach (or assistant coach, the radio n ews wasn't clear) was "abusing" his players? Can someone give me the cliff notes version? I have no idea who he is or who he coaches.
The assistant coach Jimmy Martelli, nicknamed "Baby Rice", resigned the same day Mike Rice was fired. He has the same coaching style and was on the video.
It is especially a big deal for Rutgers because after Tyler Clementi's suicide, the university has been pushing their anti-bullying and anti-discrimination measures. Mike Rice was screaming at his players, calling them f'ing fairies and f'ing f*****s. One player transferred and Eric Murdock, who is the whistleblower and no longer employed by the school, said that the player's nickname was "Lithuanian f****t".
