One hot mess after another

Maybe someday, Rutgers University will be able to get out of its own way.

Maybe. Someday.

For now, though, it appears to have stepped in it again. First there was the Mike Rice debacle, then there was the Eddie Jordan fiasco, and now there's new athletic director Julie Hermann, who brings with her accusations of player abuse as Tennessee's volleyball coach and a discrimination suit by a former assistant coach who claims Hermann fired her because she got pregnant.

Hermann claims not to remember any of it. Rutgers, meanwhile, is facing more questions about just how carefully they vetted their latest hire.

Yes, sir. This looks like a great addition to the Big Ten.
