Barchi's main thrust was twofold: First, that he did not watch the video of Rice mistreating players when it first was presented in November because he entrusted Pernetti to handle things appropriately. Second, that he would not heed considerable public pressure to resign because he serves at the pleasure of the university's board of governors."I rgret that I did not ask to see the video when Tim first told me of its existence," Barchi said, "because I am certain that this situation would have had a very different outcome had I done so."
"No," Izzo said. "I think he did the right thing by acquiescing to (Pernetti's) advice at the time. Presented with the same information in a different form (a video), he acted promptly. Once you reverse the decision of your team, you have to talk to your team to see whether you have the right people."
"As we move forward here, we are going to take a hit as far as not having a very charismatic athletic director at the helm," Barchi said, adding, "this is not a one man ship."
Ralph Izzo, chairman of the board of governors, was asked if firing Barchi is an option.

Support for Barchi came from a high place as Gov. Chris Christie released a laudatory statement shortly after the news conference.
"The decision today by Athletic Director Tim Pernetti to resign is appropriate and necessary given the events of the past six months," Christie's statement said. "I commend President Barchi for his decisive leadership in coming to an agreement with Mr. Pernetti to have the Athletic Department of Rutgers University come under new leadership."
Barchi repeatedly was asked why he did not take 30 minutes to watch the video in November after being informed of its contents, which included clips of head coach Mike Rice pushing players, throwing and kicking basketballs at them and using gay slurs. In December, after hearing from an independent investigator, Pernetti decided to suspend and fine Rice rather than fire him. Barchi signed off on that decision.
"I want to personally apologize to the entire Rutgers community for the negative impact this situation has had on Rutgers," he said. "I apologize to any student athletes on the team who have been personally harmed."
