Rutgers loses again

On the heels of Saturday’s loss to Tennessee, the Scarlet Knights fell to Syracuse tonight, 68-54. I have to say, I’m a little shocked. But almost equally surprising was C. Vivian Stringer’s quote from this story:

“We didn’t have anybody that came to play today, simple as that,” Stringer said. “We’ve played a very easy schedule, by and large. If the upperclassmen were doing what they should have been doing, those freshmen would have got a lot of experience. But we’re barely getting by, so I decided we’re going to win or lose the game, I’m going to play the freshmen. They don’t know what they’re doing, but I thought I’d give them a chance anyway.”

Curious – what do people think of this quote and game strategy?
