Q Toon: Mike Rice
Looking back over this year's cartoons, I notice that I've drawn an awful lot of cartoons about marriage equality lately. My editors are probably happy to see that this week's cartoon is about something else.
Last December, Rutgers University suspended men's basketball coach Mike Rice after administrators were shown video of him verbally and physically abusing his players -- hurling basketballs at their heads, shoving, kicking and manhandling them, calling them faggots -- you know, motivational stuff. Then ESPN showed the videos to the world, and the University hastily fired Rice.
