Re: rutgers

It is amazing, we can't secure $60-70 million for a brand new stadium yet schools are spending $150 million on a "make-over."

I know the likes of Notre Dame, Michigan, etc. have done similar "make-overs" but those are top flight programs. While Rutgers has improved over the past 3-4 years, they are not a top program. Amazing that they can still dump $150 million into renovations.

GO OWLS!!!

Ahhh Rutgers. The place that pays the bills for my mom's life, and my sisters, and my niece.

Rutgers has a lot of private money as well. My mom called me the year before last to say that campus was CLOSED on a work/school day because people were camping out overnight just to try and get a ticket.

Years before, Rutgers couldn't give a ticket away.

We aren't far from that scenario…

And yes, Rutgers Stadium is awful. Definitely needs a serious makeover.

We're a Ray Rice away and a better conference away in my opinion… that's pretty substantial, but agree its not too far off the map for us.

Re: rutgers

We had our Ray Rice..... Anthony Crissinger-Hill. By far the best tightend in the nation THAT YEAR.

I think Kellen Winslow was a senior at UM that year….I will take 2nd best.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

One big difference.

Ray Rice wasn't on the weed. At least not that we know about.
