Ray Rice is the biggest disgrace in sports today–and just when you thought he couldn’t fall any lower, he somehow finds a way to fall even further. It seems that even his alma mater no longer wants to have anything to do with him. [photo: Stephen Dunn/Getty]
Rice made his way to the NFL and the Baltimore Ravens from his days as a star player for Rutgers University. He broke the school’s record for rushing yards and he’s constantly mentioned as one of the university’s most celebrated and successful Scarlet Knights in the team’s history…until now. His image has been scrubbed clean from the school including from a video montage called “Knights of the NFL” played during home games at High Point Solutions Stadium.
A spokesperson for the school’s digital media department said that they removed his image from the video because “He was cut from the Ravens. He’s not on an active roster.” They wouldn’t say if they would put him back into the video if he somehow found his way to another team, which isn’t going to happen anytime soon.
His name and jersey number are also being removed from all signs posted around the stadium and the department of athletics. By Thursday, the only place you’ll be able to find Rice’s name is in their record books despite the fact that football coach Kyle Flood said he would “always be a part” of Rutgers University. Apparently, it will just be in a part that the public can’t see and we can’t say that we blame them.
