Duke or Rutgers?

Would you send your son or daughter to prestigious Duke University in North Carolina OR Rutgers the public State University of New Jersey? When Duke lacrosse players were accused of rape the university faculty raised up as one to condemn the entire team. The president of the university cancelled their season - punishing every member of the team, not just the accussed. Then he fired the coach. Did President Richard H. Brodhead presume the accused were innocent until proven guilty? Now he says so. But all along he has left them to hang. On the other hand, when the Rutgers women's basketball team were called cheap names by Don Imus, the university stood by them. I choose the public university Rutgers, not the "Ivy League of the South" Duke.
