ROUGH PATCH: In N.Y., Lenn Robbins writes the "public embarrassment in which Rutgers is mired is not what the Big Ten had in mind last November when it invited the university to become a member." Delany said, "You would wish that the coverage would be about integration, about the successful integration. Not about personnel matters. I think that’s an obvious situation. But there are personnel issues of high interest." He added, "It eventually will calm down. It’s not calmed down. I don’t have the magic wand to make it calm, and to be honest with you, issues of personnel decisions made by selection committees in the context of executive committees -- those are not conference matters" (N.Y. POST, 6/4). Delany: "(Rutgers) will make it through. They will make their decisions and the Big Ten will be as supportive as we always are with our members." Delany said that he will "be at Rutgers on Thursday and Friday, when he is expected to meet with Hermann and Rutgers officials" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 6/4).
