Chris Carlin is synonymous with Rutgers. He's been calling football games for over a decade, and basketball games for almost as long. He's also an integral piece in New York sports, having worked for Imus, Mike and the Mad Dog, the Mets, SNY (like the great LOUDMOUTHS show he hosts.), and now Sirius/XM College Sports. The man know his Rutgers. Check it out.
Seeing all the fans in the parking lots -- laughing, hugging people they didn't even know, taking in every moment -- man, that was the best part. As fans, you guys had been through so much, it was just awesome to see you get to enjoy it.
(On a personal note, my fiance - now wife - Sheryl and I drove home. I got home about 2:00 AM, and had to get up at 4:00 AM to go to work on the Imus show. I woke up, turned on ESPN, and heard my voice. I can't even begin to explain what that felt like. Imus was trying to get under my skin (like any other day,) and I just said to him, 'You can say whatever you want today, old man. You ain't knocking the smile off my face."
All morning, I had friends texting and calling, telling me that 'Mike & Mike' were playing it all morning. It's a dream of a broadcaster to get an opportunity to call a game and get a moment like that, and I will forever be indebted to Bob, Kevin, Greg, and Rutgers for giving me that opportunity.)
Can't wait for September 3!
