  • Check out Keith Sargeant on the latest episode of Jersey Sports Radio. As far as their Chas Dodd discussion goes, winning at Byrnes is the equivalent to winning at Don Bosco (if you're the type to hold quarterbacks responsible for a team's record). The bigger concern is how Dodd will adjust to a new offense that's outside of his comfort zone.
  • Football Scoop now has a non-P.J. Fleck rumor for Ohio State's WR coach opening. Anyone know where that was cribbed from?
  • Former Rutgers DL coach Gary Emanuel is the new DC at Purdue. Emanuel is an excellent coach, and well-deserves the bump, although I'm still upset about losing him.
  • LFBall's back, and he's not happy with Seton Hall's coaching staff.
  • Navy officially announced their 2011 schedule on Friday, complete with a travel date to "New Brunswick" on Oct. 15. For anyone wondering about the rumors that the series would be delayed/canceled, it seemed to be a moot point once '11-'13 games were listed in the '10 Navy media guide.
  • Several Scarlet Knight alumni signed futures contracts with NFL teams last week, including Joe Porter and Kevin Brock with the Raiders, Ryan D'Imperio with the Vikings, and Kevin Malast with the Titans. Brock and Porter also recently visited a center for troubled youth according to a story.
  • Kenny Britt promises to improve his conditioning after his promising sophomore campaign was marred by frequent injuries. Britt was very good when he stayed on the field in 2010, and will undoubtedly be a trendy offseason pick for a breakout campaign.
  • The Wizards demoted Hamady N'Diaye to the D-League.
  • With the Jets playing the Jets, Eric Foster got the requisite Ledger story. Jamaal Westerman was doing his part on the other side by pretending to be Dwight Freeney in practice.
  • Hey, Rutgers finally beat North Carolina in a sport! It was the surging wrestling team of course.
  • Baseball is picked to finish sixth in the Big East this year.
  • So, with Dion Lewis leaving for the NFL, can everyone in New Jersey stop talking about a back from Albany that prepped at Blair for one year?
  • The Rutgers Athletics A.A.D. for compliance is leaving for a promotion at ECU. Guess that explains this job listing.
  • Former Rutgers WR coach Darrell Hazell has hired former RU staffer Dennis Scuderi from Absegami HS as TE coach. Hazell has a bright future, but he's going to have trouble outrecruiting Addazio at Temple for New Jersey's best MAC players. That crop is surprisingly good when you think about how many players don't land on a BCS team for off-field reasons.
  • Testing New Jersey high school athletes for steroids appears to be a giant waste of money.
  • Mason Gross is ramping up its opera program thanks to a generous donation.
