L.J. Smith rooting for Temple this week

Yeah, his brother plays for them, and L.J. didn't really say anything bad, so you can't get on him too hard for this. It's not fair to be too critical considering that Rutgers did not recruit Nate despite him literally growing up in their backyard in Highland Park. He's a good player too, earning playing time for Temple as a freshman. Still, this brings to mind how Smith graduated a decade ago with a strained relationship with Greg Schiano. They eventually buried the hatchet, but you can't help but wonder whether things would be different if he had a better experience on the banks. He's definitely one of the most polarizing players in recent Rutgers history, with fans tantalized by his potential but beyond frustrated by his inconsistent hands.
