Rutgers Billboards

There is a Rutgers Football billboard on 95 in Hollywood. There used to be one on the Turnpike near the Comercial Blvd toll plaza. I know there are a few people from NJ here. But why would Rutgers Football spend money on billboards in South Florida? How much ticket sales can you really generate from this? Does FAU Football have billboards outside of South Florida?

It's probably more of a recruiting tool then for ticket sales.

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Re: Rutgers Billboards

They have been doing that for years since Schiano took over.  He has to come down and steal our recruits because even the football players in NJ suck.

I doubt that, I went to High school in New Jersey and their is a good amount of talent.  Just can't compare to Florida based on population.  If we had the budget to make a steady recruiting pipeline out of say California, Arizona, or Texas I can't say anyone on this board would look at it as "stealing"….. ;D

Re: Rutgers Billboards

Ever since Shiano left the Hurricanes, there have been billiboards of RU up. There use to be a big billboard with a backdrop of NYC on the corner of Richmond (168th street) and US1, where South Ridge, South Dade, Killian, Palmetto and Homestead students would see a lot of it.

He does it for recruiting - and it's working.

Re: Rutgers Billboards

A cornerback from Northeast High is now at the Minnesota Vikings after going to Rutgers.

Lets face it, all the schools from up north are raiding south florida, its just something we have to deal with until we can compete with the facilities of those schools.

Re: Rutgers Billboards

Rutgers AD got fired or left or asked to leave or something. Papers up north say the president of the university is next. Reason? Reported mismanagement of money - especially with the construction of the football stadium.
