Gathering of Former Players

I was informed by one of my fellow letterwinners that the Football Letterwinners association will be having a picnic at 3:30PM on April 25th prior to the annual Spring Game. As a result, I would like to modify the plans and invite all former football Scarlet Knights to Athlete's Glenn at 3:30PM.

Please spread the word. It would be great to see everyone again.

After building an 8-2 lead in game one – only to watch West Virginia rally for a 12-9 win – Rutgers turned the tables in the nightcap, using a seven-run eighth inning en route to a 12-4 win to salvage a split of today’s BIG EAST doubleheader in Morgantown. After idling for two days while it rained and snowed in Morgantown, the two teams endured sub-30 degree weather during today's twinbill. With the split, Rutgers is 6-11 overall and 1-1 in BE play.
Late-Inning Rally Gives Rutgers Split at West Virginia

After braving a snowstorm that postponed its Big East opening series for two days, the Rutgers baseball team fought past a devastating 12-9 loss to West Virginia and rebounded for a much-needed 12-4 win in the nightcap yesterday at Hawley Field in Morgantown.
The Scarlet Knights (6-11, 1-1 Big East) had won their past 11 games over West Virginia coming into this weekend, and hadn't lost to the Mountaineers in Morgantown in seven years.

Ben Howland of Pittsburgh is in serious discussions with UCLA about that school's coaching vacancy.
Howland has reinvigorated the Panthers' program, coaching Pitt to a 28-5 record, a Big East Tournament championship this year and a pair of NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 finishes the last two seasons. He apparently has been assured he is the only candidate new Bruins AD Dan Guerrero is speaking with at this point.

Pittsburgh coach Ben Howland met with his players on Monday, but gave no indication whether he was in line to take over at UCLA. Howland, who called UCLA his "dream job" last week, declined to speak with reporters after meeting with his team. Julius Page, a junior guard, said "No comment" as he and several teammates rushed away from the meeting looking glum-faced.

St. John's head coach Mike Jarvis still has his worn copy of "Let's Play Defense" by Bob Knight that he purchased in the late '60s. That was also around the same time Jarvis "saved up his pennies" to attend a Framingham, Mass., basketball clinic run by Knight

In the Orange euphoria outside the Syracuse locker room Sunday afternoon, a cell phone was thrust at Jim Boeheim. Boeheim held the phone to his ear and his goofy grin widened. The voice on the other end belonged to former Syracuse star Derrick Coleman.
