  • Ryan Hart's lawyers enlisted other Scarlet Knight alumni in his ongoing lawsuit against EA Sports. The statute of limitations is six years in NJ for these matters, and a district court judge is allowing the case to proceed based on the state's right of publicity.
  • Per Andy Katz, one possible solution to get TCU into the Big East would be to have them join the league for football only, with their other sports moving from the Mountain West to the WAC. So far TCU isn't biting. This proposal has bad idea written all over it. Any half measures like that would improve football for the time being, but breed resentment on both sides and would not product the league against future raids.
  • The first pictures of Yankee Stadium set up for football are up.
  • Rutgers wrestling kicked off its season with wins over Sacred Heart and East Stroudsburg. The wrestling team technically broke out last year, but now they're really poised to do even better.
  • Mike Vorkunov caught up with Hamady N'Diaye on Friday when the Wizards played the Knicks.
  • Kenny Britt is out indefinitely after a hamstring injury last week against San Diego. The timing is awful considering that he had just broken out against the Eagles. The Titans claimed Randy Moss off waivers to replace Britt.
  • Glassboro's Gary Brackett finally had an opportunity to play in Philadelphia when the Colts came in to play the Eagles.
  • Big Cat Country hosted a Q&A with Kevin Haslam last week, which mainly focuses on which position he'd like to play for the Jaguars.
  • Gary Gibson is quietly having a good season for the St. Louis Rams.
  • Devin McCourty wants Morris Chestnut to play him in a future biopic.
  • Ricky Shields resurfaced in the fifth round of last week's D-League draft.
  • There are once again rumors about Staten Island DE Dominique Easley transferring from Florida, although his destination is supposedly Oregon.
  • Rutgers was among a number of schools sending representatives to India with Pres. Obama to India last week to lobby for bill allowing foreign satellite campuses in that country. The Camden Business Dean is responsible, but additional future partnerships would be understandable considering that central New Jersey and Rutgers probably have a higher percentage of South Asians than any other region or university in the country.
