General Athletic Information



When John Glass was an all-state football player at Dieruff High School in 1998, he made a habit of placing his game jersey on the lampshade in his bedroom. The two letters in the middle of the word ''Dieruff'' shined brighter than the others because they were placed over the center of the light bulb.

The two letters were ''R'' and ''U.''
Life now smooth for Glass

Each day, Joe Radigan strolls the sidelines of Rutgers University's practice field, dropping a ball in the direction of his right foot.

"After a while, yes, it does get boring," said Radigan, the Scarlet Knights top punting prospect. "But it's something I need to do. If I don't drop that ball flat, it doesn't matter how great my steps or my leg-swing are. If I get the bad part of the ball, I'm not going to get a good hit."
Radigan gets opportunity to punt for Rutgers

Coach Greg Schiano was hoping to have his starting tailback in place after last Saturday's intra-squad scrimmage. The selection process hasn't exactly gone according to plan.
Rutgers notes: Pittman may start since Facyson is injured.

One of the first things Craig Ver Steeg wanted to know after taking over as Rutgers offensive coordinator in January was which players were considered the leaders on offense. So he polled the players to find out.
The landslide winner was soft-spoken senior center Marty Pyszczymuka.

Two weeks into training camp, the injury list is growing for coach Greg Schiano.
"I think camp has taken its toll on our football team," Schiano said after practice yesterday. "But part of getting mentally tough enough to play a season is pushing through this period right now where we're a little bumped, and probably a little bit mentally tired."
Rutgers notes: Injuries are starting to take a toll

Schiano: We're No. 1

Now in his third camp, Greg Schiano has looked more at ease, more comfortable as a head coach than ever before. But that doesn't mean he's toned down any of the rhetoric.

People definitely thought E.J. Barthel was nuts. A lot of people, the Rutgers freshman admitted.

An All-Bergen County, All-North Jersey tight end out of Becton Regional, Barthel had full rides to play football at Hofstra, Fordham, St. Peter's and a bunch of other schools.

Knights in the Pros

San Francisco acquired second baseman Eric Young from the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, giving the Giants insurance for injured starter Ray Durham. "I just want to go over there and get to that playoff level again," said Young, a former Rutgers baseball player who last saw in the postseason in 1995 for Colorado. "I'd only experienced that one time in my career and that's what it's all about.

Around Big East


Colleges Beginning with an "R"
Rutgers Draft History

Big East football has never been stronger.

A conference school has finished in the top two in the country the past four years, played for the national title three of those seasons, and was one close call away from winning it all twice.
Big East irony: It's never been better

Around the nation

Only gets uglier. Grimier. Sadder. I am trying to think of another college coach who has driven his career over a cliff in such a manner as Dave Bliss. No one comes to mind. It begins to sound like a Hollywood version of the worst of college basketball. Nearly every conceivable sin has been mentioned. There is disgrace on every page. The self-destruction of Bliss continues unabated.
