Former University of Tennessee student Kim Obiala weighs in on abuse allegations against former coach & new Rutgers hire, Julie Hermann

Rutgers University's newly hired athletic director, the one hired to clean up its scandal-ridden program, may have been guilty of the same type of abuses that got the school's men's head basketball coach, Mike Rice, fired in the first place. The university faced tough criticism in the days after a video surfaced of Rice being abusive towards players. Now Julie Hermann is under fire for similar conduct.

Kim Obiala played under Hermann for two years at the University of Tennessee. She's a member of the team that wrote a letter to Hermann in 1997 that mentioned the unbearable mental cruelty they suffered under her. They recently gave it to "The Star Ledger" in Newark, New Jersey. Obiala weighs in on the scandal “Starting Point” this morning.
