Aditi's final story in the Record? AD Tim Pernetti plans extensive streaming video system ("Knightvision"), savings from not printing media guides.
RU fans who want tickets at Army will have to buy them as part of a package deal for $49 a pop. Another reason I say to drop the Black Knights from future schedules.
If Scott Goodale can make Rutgers wrestling a top 25 team his first year on the job, with only one recruiting class, and less than the full allotment of scholarships, just imagine the possibilities with an additional four ships. Thanks to Mr. Pernetti (you not only have to pay for wrestling, but for a corresponding women's program because of Title IX), the wrestling team now has 9.4 scholarships to work with. The upper bound is 9.9. It's clear that Pernetti is making non-revenue sports a priority. I'd guess that the biggest trouble spots now are Lax and Soccer, Rutgers ought to be better at both.
