Football

Rutgers football coach Greg Schiano knows a little something about winning.
Prior to his arrival at Rutgers, he was the defensive coordinator at the University of Miami in 1999 and 2000. The Hurricanes went 11-1 in 2000, had a No. 2 national ranking and won the Sugar Bowl. While Schiano was a defensive backfield coach at Penn State from 1991 to 1996, the Nittany Lions won 58 games and made six bowl appearances, including the Rose Bowl in 1995.
Rutgers remains work in progress

After walking off the field following Thursday morning's practice and acknowledging that his team is physically tired, head coach Greg Schiano was rewarded with a tremendous effort during today's afternoon session, a two-hour practice that featured crisp play, upbeat tempo and sharp execution.
Top-Notch Afternoon Session Sends Rutgers Football Into Final Day of Camp on a High Note

Nate Jones and his fellow frequent fliers on Rutgers' punt coverage team will have to run a fine line between hard-charging aggressiveness and stop-on-a-dime restraint this season.
The NCAA eliminated the "halo rule," which gave a punt returner a 2-yard safe zone while making the catch, and that means "fliers" can get closer to the returner. But being too close now will trigger a 15-yard penalty.
Punt coverage gets tricky

Rutgers hasn't exactly got the sold-out, Scarlet-shirted, pompom-waving crowd thing down yet. Scheduling a 7 p.m. Saturday opener on Labor Day weekend isn't exactly the best way to get there.

The fullback experiment is a distant memory now -- which suits Brad Cunningham just fine.

The long and often lonely road that brought a running back named Justise Hairston to Rutgers University was punctuated by a barrage of gunfire and washed clean five years later with the tears of a stranger.

Thomas Smith watched last season as Claude Harriott blossomed from an relatively unknown into an all-American caliber defensive end.

There is an unmistakable buzz about Johnnie Morant around the Syracuse University football team during preseason camp.
The senior wide receiver is showing every sign that he may be finally busting loose and becoming a force in the Syracuse offense.

Around the nation

One week from tomorrow Penn State will open the season against Temple at Beaver Stadium. But who will start at running back and at key positions in the offensive line was still undetermined yesterday.
Football: Outlook bright, but Penn State has unsettled look on offense

It was Tuesday afternoon when the phone rang in the office.
I picked it up. "This is T.K.," said a folksy voice on the other end. "T.K. Wetherell.
"Sure it is.
FSU problems aside, T.K. is a nice guy

He's a loyal soldier, all right. Red, white and devoted until the day they throw dirt on him. Barney Cotton doesn't look all that far removed from that all-conference offensive lineman at Nebraska some 25 years ago -- his 6-5 frame is just a few two-a-days shy of playing shape. Cotton was the player who shut his mouth, did his job and toiled in obscurity. Why should things change now?
Huskers take on the look, the feel of Cotton

Rutgers on SI - Thursday Morning

When Nate Robinson arrived for Rutgers' training camp on Aug. 5, he was in a strange condition. On his first day at college, the 305-pound blue-chip freshman defensive lineman was afflicted with an abscess in one of his teeth. Head coach Greg Schiano recalled Robinson's mug as "all blown up." The practice field could wait -- he had to see a dentist.
