The women moved up this week in the rankings. We reported the No. 10 ranking earlier in the week from TopDrawer Soccer. But the other polls also moved Rutgers up as noted here:

It's Time for Wrestling....at least practice. And you can watch. This is a very cool idea.
Saturdays wrestling practice will take place 10:15-11:30 at athletes glen across from fball stadium! Stop by during tailgate to see the team— Coach Scott Goodale (@CoachGoodale) September 21, 2015
Stop the tailgate for a bit, take a walk over to Athletes Glen and watch. You will not be disappointed.
Speaking of wrestling.....
Goodale and the staff have been putting out these tweets periodically, highlighting members of the squad. Great promotional idea.

Life goes on, with or without the head coach
Kyle Flood's suspension precludes him from being on the sidelines for three games. Apparently, Associate Head Coach Norries Wilson will be addressing the media during the week as well. Last week, Wilson also filled in for Flood on his weekly radio show, something that happened again last night.

So far during the suspension, Flood has not faced the media, or the public. And I can't fault him or the University for that action. As I've said in other situations, no good could come of that.

Big Ten Treasure Hunter
One of my favorite BTN programs is back. John Arcand is the Big Ten treasure hunter, seeking out collectors of Big Ten memorabilia. We did a few posts last year on Rutgers memorabilia, and if anyone out there has a collection, let me know. Two can play that game!!

Ice is Nice
It's late September (....and I really should be back at school....rock on, Rod!). So it must be time for ice hockey!
ICYMI...Our home opener is quickly approaching! Saturday Oct. 3rd at 3:30pm vs @LVCathletics! https://t.co/Uys9nPEasO pic.twitter.com/41CVGIarwj— Rutgers Ice Hockey (@rutgershockey) September 21, 2015
Rutgers Ice Knights - still hoping to get varsity status - will open the season next weekend against Lebanon Valley College at ProSkate Arena in South Brunswick. Football has a bye week. Men's soccer is at night. Why not watch some Rutgers hockey?
