Hard as it is to believe,
Rutgers has had an impact on the national championship race. A day after needing
a 28-point fourth-quarter explosion to rally for a 42-17 victory over the
lowly Knights, Miami's penalty was a demotion from No. 1 to No. 2 in this
week's Associated Press Top 25 Poll, with Oklahoma taking over the top spot.
Somehow - inexplicably - the Hurricanes lost 27 of their 59 first-place votes
from a week ago for doing what they do best, and better than any team in college
effect: Miami No. 2
Last December, Rutgers
coach Greg Schiano shelled out $12,000, slapped his mug across a billboard,
and told every driver in South Florida he was serious about recruiting.
Forget the mammoth Christmas card this year. All he has to do now is tie some
ribbon on the game tape and toss it in the mail.
Sure, Rutgers' 42-17 loss to Miami on Saturday doesn't make Schiano's 1-8
record look any prettier. But Rutgers' 17-14 lead in the fourth quarter and
Rutgers' ruggedly never-say-die play against the defending national champion
- which hasn't lost in 30 tries - did more for recruiting than any advertisement
adds up to big win

Around the Big East
The Temple football team
heard boos yesterday at Veterans Stadium.
It was not hard to understand why. Facing West Virginia in a Big East matchup
the Owls deemed critical to their chances of ending the season strong, Temple
was left staggering after the Mountaineers steamrolled to a 46-20 victory
before a crowd of 15,042.
"It was a total collapse from the top down," Temple wide receiver
Zamir Cobb said.

Miami, which had been
No. 1 in both polls since the preseason, including a one-week tie with Oklahoma
in the AP, trailed for three quarters against 1-8 Rutgers; Oklahoma passed
a much tougher test with a 27-11 win against No. 21 Colorado.
What did the country think when they saw the Miami score after three quarters?
"I'm sure they were happy," Hurricanes center Brett Romberg said
in the locker room. "Everybody is waiting for us to lose."
