Jones: ‘I don’t have a huge problem with his behavior’

    NO problem with this behavior? OK. To each his own, I guess but I wouldn't want my kid playing for a coach like this.

    Just watched a segment on CNN with Carol Costello where the fellow on the panel who was kind of saying this behavior isn't unusual. He wasn't very convincing, especially since he didn't even know that Rutgers is about to joint the Big 10! Some "expert". Just what we need in the Big 10...another "problem team" like Penn State in Rutgers. Biggest mistake the Big 10 made was expanding. Lost traditions and rivalries and so many new problems. Too bad sports is all about money now.
