Longsnapper Jeremy Branch could return for the Louisville game.

ESPN's Brian Bennett, who covered the Louisville beat until a few months ago, thinks that they don't match up well with Rutgers.

Phil Simms thinks Mike Teel can play in the NFL.

Brian Leonard is expected on campus tomorrow.

Wow, I didn't even catch that Clark Harris was on Houston's practice squad. With Bryan Pittman suspended for using a prohibited diuretic, the Texans are planning to activate Harris to be their long snapper. Now there are a fair bit of former Knights in the NFL - Brackett, O'Hara, Smith, Leonard, Rice, Foster, Stapleton, Zuttah, Neill, Jones, Gibson, Harris, and Porter, with Parker and Renkart on practice squads. How long has it been since 13 Rutgers alumni played in the NFL at the same time? Now Sosa (which will happen, if he's healthy) and Stephenson need to find teams next year.

John Folmer hath spoken: Pitt is now the Sun Bowl's first choice.

UNC is going to the Tire Bowl, and that article mentions Pitt as a likely opponent. Huh?

With Willis McGahee benched last Sunday, it's possible that Ray Rice's role in Baltimore could continue to expand.

It may be worth looking into that Staten Island native Vidal Hazelton is transferring from USC to be closer to home. However, PSU was his finalist a couple of years ago, and they definitely appear to have more playing time available at the WR position that we do.

The Robert Wood Johnson foundation is donating $10 million to Rutgers to research childhood obesity.
