The Star-Ledger with *GASP* positive coverage

2

To elaborate, the Star-Ledger's sports desk has not been unfair to Rutgers athletics over the years, but the rest of the paper sure has been. No more. You can't exactly deny how incredible the accomplishment of getting into the Big Ten was, although as Pernetti notes, it will come with facility upgrade commitments. We do see the tidbit that the Big Ten move led directly to a $10m donation for the RAC upgrade project. Issuing more debt for RAC renovation is a sound move with interest rates as low as they are right now, and a certain revenue stream coming down the line. That should also silence the basketball fans upset that Rutgers issued a bond for football but had not yet to this point for hoops. The piece also includes some biographical details about Pernetti, including his father's battle with cancer, and Tim's unabashed love of Ronald Reagan. Guess that makes sense given how much Tim seems to praise Chris Christie.
