  • Eric LeGrand will take two summer classes via Skype.
  • Almost every Rutgers fan believes that the Big East will get a much better television deal by hitting the open market, instead of instantly capitulating to ESPN like the conference leadership and basketball-only schools want.

Nobody knows whether or not Rutgers A.D. Tim Pernetti will be able to hire a top-tier lacrosse coach, but there is little doubt that his television expertise is an unmatched asset right now.

Oliver Luck knows what he's doing, but there is an entrenched good old boy network in Morgantown that is as determined to hang on to power as those thieves in Providence.

  • Here's Devin McCourty's interview with Pro Football Focus.
