In the letter about Julie Hermann, hired May 15 as Rutgers' athletic director after serving as the No. 2 athletic administrator at Louisville, the players wrote: ``The mental cruelty that we as a team have suffered is unbearable.'' They say Hermann called them ``whores, alcoholics and learning disabled.''
The 49-year-old Hermann told The Star-Ledger she didn't remember the letter.
Hermann, the first woman to head Rutgers' athletic program, has promised a restart for the program following the ouster of its men's basketball coach and the resignation of other officials.
