Several former Rutgers Football stars enjoying playoff runs......
I don’t know about you but I would love to see the Atlanta Falcons take on the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl, its a win-win for our NFL Knights, but lets get through the playoffs first. The New England Patriots take on the Texans, while the Atlanta Falcons take on the Seattle Seahawks. Check out our NFL Wild Card recap and Divisional Preview.
Devin McCourty is the bedrock of the Patriots defense, no matter how infrequently his name comes up https://t.co/RBVp1pcp76— The Ringer (@ringer) January 14, 2017

Facility Upgrade Announcements Continue
Pat Hobbs went on the air this week to discuss all things Rutgers Athletics, including an update on the R BIG BUILD.
Among the closing points was the R BIG BUILD. It all started one year ago next week. Hobbs reiterated that they are just under $70 million. And he said the whole campaign is a “game changer”. And while he emphasized the new RWJBarnabas Health Performance Center as the centerpiece, he noted that the soccer-lacrosse center is already in the planning. He noted that there have been conversations with a number of alums and there will be some drawings out in a few weeks.
