HAHA...OTE is a special place. They have snark and sarcasm down. You certainly need some thick skin and your big boy trousers to go there. Rutgers does get hammered pretty hard there on a regular basis. But I think you have it exactly right with the chicken/egg comment. Wish y'all the best of luck.

As an IU fan, I agree 100%.......and I understand the "threw them a lifeline" sentiment......that RU wasn't owed anything et al......that's true. However, it's also true that all the Big 10 administrators knew that RU's facilities were sub par and that they were being set up for 10 years of ass kickings in the non-revenue sports. I don't see how that benefits the athletes and fans of the other 13 schools. And it sure seems less than "sporting". I think the deal should have been somewhat front-loaded so that RU could build the facilities and hire the coaches necessary to be more competitive. The way the Big 10 dealt with RU vi. MD was rather crass, to say the least. Having taken advantage of RU's desperation, the other Big 10 schools should not complain about the result.
