Football

Come 7 p.m. Saturday, Rutgers will unveil its new football team. Here yesterday, it unveiled its new football coach.
His name still is Greg Schiano, but everything else seems changed. Start with his uniform. Missing were the standard blue blazer, the white shirt, Rutgers-emblem tie, the crisp slacks. In their place were white coaching shorts, a scarlet golf shirt with a large white R.
Year Three has new outlook for Schiano, Rutgers program

Meekins makes the cut.
In what Greg Schiano labeled the biggest surprise of camp, freshman walk-on Ramel Meekins has earned himself a spot on Rutgers' two-deep. The 6-foot-1, 252-pounder from Westwood is currently fourth tackle on the defensive line. He's slotted to back up Gary Gibson. Though Gibson, Luis Rivas, and David Harley will most likely work in a three-man rotation most of the time, Schiano said Meekins will still see some action.

William Beckford's big brother was being a real noodge about the whole thing.
