Driving the Rutgers Football Bandwagon
Long ago in 2006, when I started college, Rutgers Football was futile. Actually, Rutgers itself was kind of futile. Not in actuality, but definitely in perception. I remember watching the Bottom Line on ESPN and seeing that we had beaten UNC 7-6 in our first game of...

Rutgers, Fresno to rock the cradle of football
In 1869, Rutgers became the first college in America to host a college football season opener. The opponent was Princeton, and Rutgers won, 6-4, before a crowd of around 100. Chances are a few more points will be scored before a few more people Monday afternoon when No...

No more empty seats at Rutgers
You say you want to see the Rutgers Scarlet Knights play football in person this fall? As another New Jersey icon, Tony Soprano, might say, "Forget about it." Earlier this month, the Rutgers Athletics Ticket Office announced that all seven home games for the 2008 foot...

Touted freshman back a no-show at Rutgers
Rutgers freshman running back Rashad White is missing in action. Or, missing in inaction. The speed burner out of Teaneck, who rushed for 2,386 yards and 26 touchdowns as a junior, was a no-show on campus this week, along with fellow recruits Malcolm Johnson (a wide re...

   The spotlight finds Rutgers, for better or worse
Be careful what you wish for. Back when the Rutgers football team was a national joke and Greg Schiano started out 12-34 as head coach, Scarlet Knights fans would have given anything to have a successful, high-profile program. Now, "anything" has a number -- $2 millio...

Big, homegrown receiver joins ‘09 crowd at Rutgers
When recruiting is going well, as it is for Rutgers in assembling its freshman class of 2009, it becomes almost like grocery shopping. A quarterback to ultimately replace Mike Teel? Check. A running back who could possibly make RU fans forget about Ray Rice? Check and...

Schiano to Penn State is still a longshot
It's a game within a game that the media and the fans like to play, moving coaches around on paper like toy soldiers on a game board. And this time of year, when the valley between the end of spring practice and the beginning of August drills often becomes a parched new...

Center of attention goes with Rutgers
All Mark Brazinski had to do was walk into the room for his press conference at Immaculata High School in Somerville, N.J., on Wednesday and the suspense as to where he planned to play football in 2009 was gone. It must have been the scarlet jacket he was wearing. And...

Another Pennsylvanian commits to Rutgers
Despite all the Penn State rumors, there's no indication that Rutgers head football coach Greg Schiano plans on moving to Pennsylvania anytime soon. Recruiting there, though, is another story. Last week, Schiano's program received its third 2009 verbal commitment from...

Schiano’s raiders steal top recruit from the ACC
It used to be that the best high school football players went anywhere but Rutgers. Now, some of them are choosing Rutgers when they could have gone anywhere. So successful has Greg Schiano's program been in recent years that Rutgers fans have already forgotten that th...

Rutgers beats quality competition for promise from DE Larrow
Mike Larrow's recent verbal commitment to the Rutgers University football program may have been a belated Mother's Day present. 'I just wanted to end it (the recruiting process), my Mom wanted to end it, and I thought Rutgers was the best fit for me," Larrow, a 6-foot-...

The Ravens on Rice: Durable, doable
Ray Rice couldn't have drawn it up any better. The former Rutgers star, who took only three years to become the school's all-time leading rusher, found himself drafted by exactly the right team in April. Rice went in the second round to the Baltimore Ravens, with whom...

Promising: Scarlet Knights get verbal OK from five-star quarterback
Not so long ago, most of Rutgers' recruiting victories were scored over Temple, Delaware and Hofstra. That has obviously changed. On April 18, the Scarlet Knights announced a verbal commitment from Tom Savage of Cardinal O'Hara High School in Springfield, Pa., the firs...

Rutgers should be fun to watch again
(Third in a series of Big East spring football previews) In 2007, Rutgers became the first Division I-A football program ever to produce a 3,000-yard passer (Mike Teel), a 2,000-yard rusher (Ray Rice) and two 1,000-yard receivers (Kenny Britt and Tiquan Underwood) in o...

State blue-chippers get away, but Rutgers lands monster quarterback
(Second in a series on Big East football recruiting.) OK, let's start with the bad news. Of the 10 senior football players generally regarded as New Jersey's top recruits, Rutgers signed only one -- mammoth (6-foot-8, 288 pounds) offensive lineman Art Forst from Manas...

Rutgers NFL draft bio: Eric Foster
Guys like Eric Foster pop up every spring, grist for the NFL draft's annual ritual. They've had great college careers, but they're a) too small; b) too slow; c) the wrong position to star at the next level. Yet somebody drafts them anyway, and before long everyone has...

Rutgers NFL draft bios: Pedro Sosa and Jeremy Zuttah
It would be fitting if the same NFL team were to draft both Pedro Sosa and Jeremy Zuttah. It's not going to happen, but it would keep a perfectly matched set together. For the past three years, Sosa and Zuttah have been a team in themselves: Both tackles, both All-Big...

Rutgers NFL draft bio: Ray Rice
When some scouts look at ex-Rutgers running back Ray Rice on film, they see deficiencies. Others see Emmitt Smith. Like the 5-foot-9, 205-pound Rice, Smith was considered too short and a step slow to be an elite NFL back. We all know how accurate those predictions turn...

Scarlet Knights can’t be Cinderella again
(Sixth in a series of previews of Big East teams). There is no sequel to "Cinderella." She went to the ball, met the prince, turned out to have the right foot size. Nice story, but where do you go from there? It's like that in sports, too. The history of college foot...
