Rutgers Touchdown Club - News


Rutgers enters its second and final bye week in a similar position as the first -- fresh off a valiant effort against a nationally-ranked opponent and with the peculiar mix of honor and disappointment that goes along with such an accomplishment.
The first part of the season ended with the Scarlet Knights squandering a 14-7 halftime lead in a 35-14 loss against 11th-ranked Tennessee. This one ended with the Knights taking a 17-14 lead over No. 1 Miami into the fourth quarter, only to see it vanish in a 42-17 defeat
Scarlet Knights far from satisfied

Rutgers seemed on the verge of one of college football's biggest upsets before collapsing in the fourth quarter during a 42-17 loss to top-ranked Miami. The Knights led, 17-14, after three quarters. The loss was Rutgers' 20th straight in Big East games, but coach Greg Schiano thinks his team may be turning the corner. "We're going in the right direction," Schiano said

Men's Basketball

Adrian Hill, for no explicable reason, had fallen off the radar screen.
After leading Canton-McKinley High School to a record 25th consecutive state tournament appearance the Bulldogs lost in Ohio's 2001-02 Division I semifinals Hill got little respect.

Around the Big East

There was a whole lot of noise around the Big East last weekend.
There was screaming in New England, as Boston College students tore down a practice field goal post.
There was celebration on Pittsburgh’s Oakland campus, from the old Fitzgerald Field House down to Primanti’s.

Around the Nation

On Tuesday, the good people of Michigan had the opportunity to go to the voting booth and select a governor, U.S. senator and a host of other state officials.
In real world terms, it was supposed to be a big day.
But the lead story on the front page of virtually every newspaper in the state, often under a World War size headline, concerned the dismissal of Michigan State coach Bobby Williams. "Sacked" screamed the Detroit Free Press. "Williams Fired" blared the Lansing State Journal.

Interesting Article

Two months after the USA's humbling sixth-place finish in basketball's world championships, college rulesmakers are looking seriously at changes that could move the sport closer to the less physical, more graceful international game.
Sentiment is growing, those officials say, to permanently adopt two significant changes to be tried experimentally this season: widening the lane and moving back the three-point line.
Rules changes may make college hoops more international
