No such thing as bad publicity
I thought this was a great promotion. Somewhat snickered at it - okay, they laughed out loud - but I thought otherwise. And you probably just deleted it -- that's why I'm here.
Looking to get rid of that PSU, Maryland, or Seton Hall shirt? You're in luck. Swap it for a new RU shirt at @RutgersMBB vs Wake, Mon. @ 7pm— Rutgers Athletics (@RUAthletics) November 24, 2015
Women's Soccer....'nuff said
But we will say a bit more. Elite Eight game today at Virginia at 2:00. Live scoring here Live streaming here..
And for good measure, some awards for the past week's efforts. Senior defender Brianne Reed was named to theTopDrawerSoccer.com Team of the Week, announced Tuesday. Reed played the full 180 minutes of the No. 9 Scarlet Knights' NCAA second and third round victories last weekend, heading in the second goal of a 2-0 win against Hofstra on Nov. 20.
Joining Reed on the team of the week was sophomore forward Colby Ciarrocca. Ciarrocca was named honorable mention after notching three points (1g, 1a) in the 4-0 win against No. 18 UConn (Nov. 22).
Reed is the fourth RU player this season to earn a spot on the TDS Team of the Week. Sophomore goalkeeper Casey Murphy earned the title of TopDrawerSoccer.com Player of the Week on Oct. 20, while defender Erica Skroski made the squad on Sept. 8. Ciarrocca was also named honorable mention on Oct. 20.
Everybody loves throwbacks: bring it home!
I spoke with someone in the athletic department about this idea. And supposedly Eddie actually would be on board for a game at The Barn. It would be great. Just students, everyone right on top of the court. They have to get this done.
Good stuff from @kj_franko on Princeton's throwback night vs. Saint Peter's in Dillon Gym: Makeshift shot clocks! https://t.co/DoXcwfDotP— Jerry Carino (@NJHoopsHaven) November 22, 2015
Who is just the best?
Right. Eric. And he's still acting like the Energizer Bunny for spinal cord research. Check out this.

It's Thanksgiving weekend - let's talk food, Jersey-style
Did you have anything with cranberries yesterday? If you did, there's a good chance those cranberries were grown in New Jersey, the third largest producer of the fruit in the nation.
In honor of #Rutgers250, we're featuring a monthly all-star variety! This month, we are showcasing cranberries! https://t.co/GasnPYGy8W— Rutgers NJAES (@RutgersNJAES) November 19, 2015
It's all about the Benjamins
Money drives everything. And we've certainly talked about the need for cash infusions at Rutgers for....everything. But it is wending its way down to the high school level. In a pretty big way. And whether it's R Fund here at Rutgers, or the local booster group selling hot dogs at your high school's football game, the "team behind the team" is more important than ever.

Serious Competition, hitting all the right notes
The Marching Band. The Glee Club. Facing off in a fight to the death. Well, maybe not that serious but pretty intense.
RUMB vs RUGC 6:30 pm. It is time for the 45th annual Soup Bowl! Live feed at https://t.co/fWlGe0U5JQ.— RU Marching Band (@RUMarchingBand) November 22, 2015
Yes, football. With a live feed of the game (you can't get it now...sorry.) Glee Club won.
Soup, by the way, is the late and legendary director of the Glee Club, Austin F. "Soup" Walter, who led the singers for 37 years.
Army Blue....Rutgers Scarlet
Speaking of the band, they went to West Point. And unlike at Indiana, they were allowed to play. And share the day with the West Point musicians.
Great job @RUMarchingBand today @WestPoint_USMA performing "The Army Song" after game. https://t.co/dWg4GWn5qs pic.twitter.com/WR1Pk4bDzK— Ken Kraetzer (@SonsLegionRadio) November 22, 2015
Todd Bowles.....six one-game seasons
Just please don't let him say we want to be 1-0 this week. Please!
5-5's no time to give up the ship. Six 1-game seasons could get Bowles' Jets to the dance: https://t.co/NJp9XBFatB pic.twitter.com/yY67iCmBHg— Randy Lange (@rlangejets) November 24, 2015
