The most telling sign
of just how much of a problem area Rutgers' offensive line has become isn't
so much coach Greg Schiano's decision this week to take sophomore defensive
tackle Davon Clark and move him to guard on Tuesday.
It's more that Clark, with all of three practices at his new position, will
start tomorrow against No. 1-ranked Miami -- which happens to feature a defensive
line that is arguably the nation's best.

ESPN.com, the leading
sports site, will feature a live, interactive webcast when Rutgers hosts #1
Miami Saturday, Nov. 2, at noon ET, marking the first time ESPN.com has presented
live video streaming of a game as well as the first time a #1-ranked team
has appeared on such a webcast.

For the first time in
the history of the storied Rutgers football program, the No. 1 team in the
nation will be playing on the Banks.
The Miami Hurricanes, whose last loss was the second game of the 2000 season
against Washington, ride a 29-game winning streak into Rutgers Stadium for
their 12 noon clash with the Scarlet Knights
Their strength is our
weakness," said Rutgers football coach Greg Schiano, making a nutshell
assessment of Miami. He was talking about Saturday's trench battle against
the defensive line of the No. 1 Hurricanes, who roll into Rutgers Stadium
for a noon kickoff. The Scarlet Knights' offensive line, banged up and beaten
down, faces perhaps its toughest challenge of the season.
Schiano made some personnel moves on the fly this week to try and get additional
power and efficiency up front. He converted sophomore defensive tackle Davon
Clark to right offensive guard and replaced starting left tackle Trohn Carswell
with Mike Williamson.

Greg Schiano knew what
Willis McGahee could do even before Larry Coker did.
In 2000 the two coaches were the defensive and offensive coordinators, respectively,
under then-head coach Butch Davis at Miami. McGahee was a raw but supremely
talented running back, a product of the Florida machine that annually produces
the top athletes in the country. And McGahee was one of the best, rated the
No. 1 running back in Florida and in the top 10 nationally by Prep Star and
SuperPrep, two of the most acclaimed recruiting publications.

There have been championships
galore, a galaxy of stars raining down on the basketball court and a perennial
national reputation for St. Anthony High of Jersey City.
Each year, St. Anthony participates in the prestigious Prime Time Shootout
in Trenton and will return for two games in February.
Over the years, the game's sting of defeat has been a virtual stranger to
this vaunted basketball machine.

When Cherry Hill native
Avon Cobourne left the area to play for West Virginia in 1998, the then-5-foot-9,
180-pound tailback did not have high expectations for his football career.
As a senior at Holy Cross High in Delran, Burlington County, Cobourne had
played in only two games because of a knee injury.
"I figured I wasn't going to play much," said Cobourne, who now
weighs 192 pounds. "I just wanted to get my degree."
