RUTGERS ROW: Rutgers AD JULIE HERMANN while speaking to a journalism class reportedly said it would be "great" if the Newark Star-Ledger went out of business. She said, "That would be great. I’m going to do all I can to not give them a headline to keep them alive." In Newark, Steve Politi writes he is betting most people will "see her comments as what they are: Unbefitting a person in a high-profile position at a major university, at a time when Rutgers needs a leader for its transition into the Big Ten." She "has declared war on the largest news gathering organization that covers her athletic department." Politi: "What could possibly be gained by that?" (Newark STAR-LEDGER, 4/7). CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman wrote on Twitter, “julie hermann was an embarrassing hire as AD. congrats, rutgers.” The Buffalo News’ Mike Harrington: “If I'm Rutgers, I fire AD Julie Hermann. Today.” SI’s Richard Deitsch writes, “The trainwreck that is Rutgers AD Julie Hermann continues. What a disgrace for alums and students." MLB.com's Richard Justice: “How awful a person is the Rutgers AD? There are no words.”
