A lot of you didn't get to see (or hear) the video of Rutger's coach Mike Rice abusing his players both physically and verbally. A lot of the footage "disappeared" the day after it appeared. We weren't concerned enough to go find the footage again, but now, there's new information coming to light. More after the jump.

It turns out that Coach Rice wasn't hitting his players or firing basketballs at their head needlessly, he was doing it to protect them from "super spiders" that had got loose on the Rutger's campus.  At least this is the explanation that we got from "Funny or Die".
