ESPN's "Outside the Lines" obtained video footage of Rutgers men's basketball coach Mike Rice berating his players during practice.

Rice was suspeneded for three games and fined $50,000 by Rutgers athletic director Tim Pernetti after he viewed the footage in December. The video clips, from 2010-12, show Rice physically abusing the players, throwing basketballs at them and using gay slurs.
