Blog stuff: 2008 still has a few loose ends to tie up. Things are going to get quiet around here for a while soon. This blog will still be on top of signing day in February, and any other big news.
Thanks to the readers, Bleed Scarlet had its highest month of traffic yet in December. In the near future, my plan is to do my own internal evaluation of the past few months, and we'll see where things are after that.
Rutgers stuff: we should get news on the Hazelton and Britt fronts shortly. On Saturday, at noon on NBC, Rutgers fans will get a chance to watch prep quarterback Tom Savage compete in the Army All-American Bowl. He's been stuck on a struggling Cardinal O'Hara team, so it'll be very interesting to see what he can do playing with and against some of the top competition in the country. It wouldn't surprise me if he showed a lot of promise, but still looked somewhat raw. On Sunday, at 8 pm on ESPN, Antwan Lowery will suit up for ESPN's all-star contest. That could be worth watching too.
There's a fair bit on the plate on the basketball front coming up. The men are, incredibly, playing the #1, #2, and #3 teams this week. They fell to UNC on Monday, and have Pitt and UConn coming up. The women have a tough slate of their own, with a showdown against Tennessee at the RAC on Saturday (which will be on CBS), before starting a tough Big East road slate.
To reiterate: this is primarily a football blog, and there is not going to very much coverage of basketball or other RU sports here.
