UNTIL RUTGERS IS SET FREE FROM COMMERCIALIZED DIV IA ATHLETICS 

We will not excuse. We will not equivocate. We will not retreat a single step. And we will be heard.

Tampa Bay to Schiano: "'Keep hackin'!"

For reasons we do not fully grasp, a recent news item in a Florida newspaper reminded our older members of a RU1000 web feature devoted many years ago to Rutgers coach El Supremo and his sidekick Robin Mulcavity, the two individuals who in their day did so much to destroy Rutgers' reputation as an old eastern university and distinguished institution of higher learning. They found it brought back many fond memories.

El Supremo: A Rutgers Bedtime Story

Carl Kirschner, AD for the Ages

 

"DEAN CARL KIRSCHNER

RUTGERS UNIVERSITY

SCARLET KNIGHT FOOTBALL"

 

Wording on the framed plaque given to Dean Carl Kirschner by the Rutgers Athletics Department in recognition of services provided to the athletics program. Kirschner, well known as a Rutgers athletics supporter, was for many years permitted to travel to away games on the same airplane as the football team.

Former Rutgers Dean Carl Kirschner (right), seen here in intimate colloquy with former Athletic Director "Bob" Mulcahy.

Among his many other services to the Athletics Department, Kirschner won signal recognition for admitting to Rutgers one Damaso Munoz, a football recruit whose credentials included a substantial number of credits purchased for $399 at "University High School," a storefront operation specializing in preparing candidates for admission to universities with Div IA athletics programs.

Kirschner first served as interim athletic director when AD "Bob" Mulcahy was fired in connection with questionable financial manipulations.More recently, serving as interim AD after "Tim" Pernetti was fired in connection with a national scandal involving basketball coach Mike Rice, Kirschner played a major role in the hiring of basketball coach Eddie Jordan, a proud Rutgers alumnus who, as it happens, never graduated from the university, a fact that somehow eluded Carl Kirshner's amazing "due diligence" committee:

 "I have come to know Eddie Jordan as an open, honest and terrific person to lead our men's basketball program," said interim athletic director Carl Kirschner in the press release announcing Jordan's appointment. "Rutgers is very fortunate to have Eddie return to his alma mater to restore pride in the program."

One verified Rutgers alumnus described Jordan's 5-year contract, amounting to $6.25 million, as "obscenely expensive." Another Rutgers alumnus remarked, "with people like Kirschner on board, we don't have to worry anymore about Rutgers going into a death spiral. It's guaranteed."
