That's A College Basketball Coach?

That's A College Basketball Coach?, With the season fast approaching, why would this hoops leader suspend himself from a skyscraper? Rutgers coach Mike Rice rappels down the side of a 50-story building, Whether it's walking barefoot on the sidelines, donning a disco-era suit and gold chains or wearing a kilt instead of pants, college basketball coaches have gone to great lengths to promote their favorite charities.

Rutgers coach Mike Rice elevated the bar even higher Friday when he raised money for the fight against cancer by rappelling down the side of a 50-story New Jersey skyscraper with only a few cords holding up aloft.

Rice's daredevil descent was part of the American Cancer Society's "Over the Edge" event. It took him a mere nine minutes to get from the roof of the 470-foot Harborside Financial Center Plaza 5 building to the ground, a speedy time that would have been even faster had he not stopped to say hello to fans watching from the windows of the office building.
