Rutgers Winter Sports Recap

Check out how the Scarlet Knights fared and how they compare to future opponents in the B1G.

RU Hoops: Where's the new practice facility?

The RAC Renaissance was supposed to bring the aging arena into the 21st Century. I would have settled for 1999.

I’ve Got Your Happy Valley Right Here

With Rutgers' impending move to the Big Ten, a hated rival returns to the schedule. It's time to roll out the welcome mat for "the team from pennsylvania" as only Jersey can.

What To Expect: B1G Inaugural Season

B1G 2014 Prediction: 8-4 and bowl eligible

The Herman Interview Video

Well, at least now we can see the high quality Rutgers administration in action!

Barchi has to go too if you're forcing Pernetti out.

Barchi is an idiot. Dumping Pernetti basically forces Barchi to resign too, since he either blessed the suspension w/o paying attention OR lied about seeing the tape - there's really no other possibility. What an idiot. Protecting Pernetti and letting him land a big fish coach to change the news cycle was their only hope.

Christie said the plan would "realize hundreds of millions of dollars in research grants" for Rutgers University and had already prompted some drug companies to call the state and say how useful the merger would be, because they would be able to go "from the laboratory to clinical trials" at one university. At a meeting with The Record’s editorial board on Tuesday, Christie said the University of Medicine and Dentistry of North Jersey — with a poor reputation — had received $350 million in grants for research last year and that the new ties to Rutgers would likely generate much more.

The justification for the merger in New Brunswick was no joke. You just wish it wasn't bogged down by all that other stuff. Christie's quote here makes me think that he might have been the one to tell George Norcross to cave, which would be really awesome if true.

Merger deal reportedly reached

How can there be a compromise though, when George Norcross wants to steal all of RU-Camden's funding, and RU doesn't want that to happen? Apparently, the answer is that Rutgers has to pay Norcross a $3m yearly blackmail tax for his bankrupt hospital. That's the cost of staying independent.

Merger negotiations continue long into the night

The New Jersey legislature has finally recognized the obvious: their proposed merger bill is plain unconstitutional without the approval of Rutgers University governing boards, which up to this point have largely been a bystander in the process, as the Newark and Camden delegations demanded unfair concession after unfair concession. Not only were those self-serving changes largely unacceptable to Rutgers, but the backroom politicians making those deals did not have authority to negotiate for Rutgers! Now the question becomes who blinks with Christie's July 30th deadline fast approaching. There's the old car salesman trick, where terms of a deal change at the last minute, and you go along with it anyway because you are already far too invested in negotiations. That's the pratfall that has to be avoided. Rutgers needs to be ready to walk away, because they only get one thing they want in this deal, at too high a cost. (While the original, simple Camden for UMDNJ-NB trade was unfair, it still would have been a net boon for the university.) It's time to tell Norcross off. The only part of this merger that makes any sense at all is the New Brunswick part, and that should be the only change that happens.

After the hearing, Rivers said the trustees were firm in their stance that any attempt to take away financial control of the Camden campus from the university's board of governors, the system's other governing body, would result in litigation.

Of course, why would you say anything else as part of a public negotiation. Discussions are still continuing behind the scenes. And what's that about a new amendment about the Rutgers name?
