It's Time

Eddie Jordan will be introduced as the 18th coach in Rutgers basketball history, tomorrow at 4:30.

The team is in turmoil. What's left of it anyway.

Eli Carter is gone, apparently, after talking with Duke and Florida among others.

Mike Poole has been released.

Jerome Seagears visited Auburn this weekend, and is apparently meeting with the rest of NCAA eligible teams in the next few days.

Shane Rector, the highly touted point guard from South Kent, renegged on his Rutgers commitment, instead verbally committing to Missouri.

Chris Griffin signed with Auburn.

But tomorrow is a new start for Rutgers basketball. At 4:30 pm, in his old home--the College Avenue Gym--Eddie Jordan will be introduced as the new head coach of the Scarlet Knights. The press conference is open to the public, and it is expected many of the member of the 1976 Final Four team will be on hand as well.

It will be an event. You can also catch it on ScarletKnights.com. Been on the look out for an open thread here as well.

Jordan has an uphill climb ahead of him. If all of the transfers occur (Adam Zagoria tweeted that Eli met with Jordan today in an effort to keep him around), there will only be 5 scholarship players remaining on the team. Myles Mack and Kadeem Jack will be the standouts--assuming they decide to stay. Wally Judge too. But depth will be a major challenge.

Jordan and company will have to get recruiting.

But that's a story for minutes after the press conference. Right now, look forward to a Loyal Son of Rutgers returning to the Banks.

He'll have a lot of bleeding to stop.
