Curse of the Speedo?
Seems the Rutgers athletic department just can't catch a break these past few years. Budget issues. Foosball issues. Dodgeball issues. It just never seems to end.
Not long after hiring Eddie Jordan to replace outgoing dodgeball coach Mike Rice, it was learned that Jordan didn't actually earn his Rutgers diploma after all.
Read the university's statement here.
Eddie Jordan was inducted into the Rutgers Hall of Distinguished Alumni in 2004 and he has been a part of the Rutgers family since before 1977.
Sounds like an example of the old "If you repeat a lie often enough..." bit.
Is it just a coincidence that problems throughout the Rutgers athletic department appear to have begun right after they dumped men's swimming?
Thanks for the heads up, DA!
