Does Greg Schiano have a history of jumping victory formations? It's hard to say - Schiano claimed that it's worked four times at Rutgers, but none immediately came to mind. Certainly there's never been any sort of hullabaloo about this before. Our basketball writer Dave White however remembered the end of the UNC game last year where this happened. I then tracked down a YouTube clip of UNC QB Bryn Renner talking about it, claiming that Rutgers supposedly jumped offsides on that play. The relevant section starts at 2:15. In fact, no reporters even asked Schiano about the play at the post-game presser. I had trouble even remembering this occurred; clearly, it was seen as a total non-issue. A decade's worth of NewsBank results similarly found jack squat. Unless anyone wants to volunteer to read through eleven years of game logs, the veracity of the four games claim will remain undetermined. Whether it was the right move or not, people need to quit it by claiming that this was an attempt to cheap shot or injure Eli Manning. Of course not. Plain and simple, Schiano was trying to force a fumble. Update: collective internet sleuthing has found the three other fumbles. They were against Pitt and WVU in 2009, and Maryland in 2007. Give Schiano all the hell you want, but he told the truth.

A 2015 stud RB from Florida with the last name, Scarlett? This kid was made to wear a Rutgers jersey. Let's hope that Flood and Wilson can convince him of that. I'd love to see him in a Scarlet Knights uni in a few years and not just for the purposes of irony, he seriously looks like he can play. http://rivals.yahoo.com/rutgers/football/recruiting/player-Jordan-Scarlett-131773 I wonder if he has any idea how nice it is up in New Jersey?

It's time for the Big East Championship. And Rutgers needs to have a long memory. They can't forget about what's above. And they definitely can't forget this. Ugh. It hurts just to watch. As Mike Rice is fond of saying, "March doesn't care."

This is pretty definitive video evidence that the penalty called on Steve Beauharnais during Marcus Cooper's TD return against Syracuse was bogus.

The official Rutgers football YouTube channel is back with Coach Schiano's recap from today's practice. The weather was terrific in central New Jersey today, but that did not seem to help the Rutgers offense in the team's second spring scrimmage, with the Scarlet Knight defense continuing to have an edge. Safety David Rowe showed a nose for the ball with multiple interceptions. One culprit may have been opening up the scrimmage with 35 consecutive passes. It should be an eventful night of film study determining which players are at fault and need to show more improvement. JUCO transfer Dallas Hendrikson, who holds a slight edge over David Osei for the starting center job, left practice early with an undetermined knee injury. Neither has an enviable task in lining up against a returning Scott Vallone. Rutgers made "huge strides" in the punting game however with early enrollee freshman Anthony DiPaula, but saw multiple mishaps on the PAT/FG team, with Schiano candidly vowing to correct the day's errors. Of the three running backs (De'Antwan Williams, Jeremy Deering, and Jawan Jamison) battling for spring reps before touted freshman Savon Huggins arrives in the fall, GS praised Deering as a a big play threat out of the backfield. Another development is that Paul Carrezola has moved ahead of D.C. Jefferson at tight end. Both should play if offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti's schemes are similar to what he ran at Pitt. It's good to see Carrezola finally living up to his promise, but Jefferson could be a tremendous asset if and when everything starts to click for him. Freshman DL Djwany Mera is seeing reps inside at tackle. Rutgers has one more scheduled practice Thursday before Saturday's scheduled Spring Game. Schiano said that the team will probably experiment with a few position changes with their remaining reps left on Thursday, as most spring games are typically very basic affairs that do not delve too deeply into a team's playbook.
