General Athletic Information



Raheem Orr didn't waste a lot of time mulling over Dave Dawson's 76-yard touchdown run last Saturday night. Having survived four football seasons at Rutgers University, Orr has learned to appreciate the bigger picture.
Rutgers' defense adjusted in win

After reviving Louisville's program -- leading the Cardinals to a 42-21 record, five straight bowl appearances and consecutive Conference USA titles -- John L. Smith was hired last December to work his magic at Michigan State.
Rutgers: New coach gets off to fast start at Michigan State

Starting left guard Brian Duffy did not practice yesterday because of a knee injury suffered against Buffalo, with his status for Saturday's game at Michigan State still uncertain. If the fifth-year senior can't go, Rich McManis will take his place.
Rutgers: Duffy iffy at left guard

Ask any of Rutgers' five fifth-year seniors to name the most significant victory they've seen during their careers and none of them will request additional time to think about it.
"Syracuse. Without a doubt," defensive end Raheem Orr said.
That was 36 games and four seasons ago -- a different century, in fact, since the 24-21 overtime upset of Syracuse took place on Nov. 13, 1999.
Rutgers seeks a giant step

As Brian Duffy stormed off the field Saturday, a menacing look on his face. Rutgers' coach Greg Schiano briefly thought about talking to his left guard. Briefly.
"He's a 300-pound man," Schiano said Tuesday. "He was a very angry 300-pound man. I didn't want to get involved."
Rutgers odds and ends

Greg Schiano was explaining how old conference reputations are just about obsolete. Teams in the Big Ten now run spread offenses, such as Michigan State, and some powerhouse rushing schools now use finesse, such as Michigan. Even the Big Ten's rule of having the most massive linemen has been broken, he said.
"Look at Miami, look at Rutgers, look at Virginia Tech - all those guys have big linemen," the third year Rutgers coach said.
That's right. He said Rutgers.

The good news about Abdullahi Kuso, the latest addition to the Rutgers basketball program, is that the 6-8 1/2, 220-pounder from Nigeria, who enrolled in school and started classes yesterday, is apparently ready to contribute immediately.

Recruiting Information

Shonn Greene is gassed up and ready to go.
That's bad news for Winslow Township High School football opponents as the 2003 season races toward opening night, Friday, Sept. 12.
Greene opened eyes last fall when he carried the football 167 times for 1,609 yards and 18 touchdowns. He had four 200-yard games against rivals in the strong Olympic Conference American Division, and 11 of his touchdowns covered 50 yards or more.

Around Big East


When Boston College defensive coordinator Frank Spaziani was a high school football player in Clark, N.J., the man who recruited him for Penn State was an assistant coach named Joe Paterno. Spaziani, a standout defensive end before graduating from Penn State in 1969, became a student assistant coach under Paterno, who eventually helped Spaziani line up a high school coaching job.
For Eagles' Spaziani, friend is foe

Around the nation

Ohio State athletic director Andy Geiger said Tuesday night that he doubted star tailback Maurice Clarett would return to the defending national champions this season.
"I'm not optimistic about any number of games at this point," Geiger said.
Buckeyes AD says it's unlikely Clarett will return this season

Florida State coach Bobby Bowden plans on making sure his 11th-ranked Seminoles don't overlook an unranked Maryland team wanting redemption after being upset in the season opener.
Because of Maryland's upset loss in overtime at Northern Illinois, Bowden said he plans to emphasize the focus the Terrapins will have coming into Saturday's game, the Seminoles' home opener.
