Haters Gonna Hate (R Uniforms?)


The BTN ranked conference uniforms from best to hideous. How did Rutgers fare?

Nova/Friedgen similar to BoB/McGloin


This is a very interesting article, nevermind that it's coming from a Penn State writer. David Jones of offers this apt comparison between two schools that look to have similar situations.

In Bill O'Brien's first year, he inherited Matt McGloin, a former walk-on QB who struggled with consistency. For 2014, new OC Ralph Friedgen will inherit struggling QB Gary Nova. If the same transformation is made with Nova, I think it's safe to say that the Fridge's first year will be a huge success.

Rutgers Athletics to be self-sufficient in 10 years


Rutgers is a long ways away from getting that full Big Ten payout in 2021, which is projected to be over $45 million per school. Fear not, true believers, because RU is still getting upgraded by simply being a member. Keith Sargeant reports that Rutgers will receive $9 million in the first B1G season, which is still a lot better than the $1 million the university would have received from the American Athletic Conference.

B1G Leads 2014 Football Academic Rankings


Not too surprising, considering the quality of institutions within the conference. The ACC actually shows a better ranking when looking at the median, but the B1G is tops in terms of mean and vastly superior when looking at the range of quality schools. Rutgers comes in at #31 out of all power conference programs, better than more than half of the entire list. This is consistent with the rest of the B1G. Meanwhile, Nebraska brings down the conference with it's 100+ US News ranking and non-AAU membership. #lolHuskers
