General Athletic Information
It wasn't until warming up before last Saturday's game at Michigan State that Rutgers University offensive guard Brian Duffy decided to play on his injured right knee. The senior, however, logged significant time in the Scarlet Knights' 44-28 loss at Spartan Stadium.
Duffy, a 6-foot-5, 315-pound graduate of Brick Memorial High School, had injured the knee against Buffalo on Aug. 30. He had his left knee surgically repaired last season and missed six games.
Greg Schiano leans in a little, his voice gets a little stronger, and a look that's frightfully close to reverence crosses his face. Two weeks now, he's done the same thing. Two weeks now, he's been talking about his opponent's offense. Not its playmakers, not its game-breakers - its balance.
"They're as balanced a team on first and second down as there is," the Rutgers' coach said of this week's opponent, Army.
Rutgers always on run
Rutgers Football: This Week's Opponent
Take the problems Rutgers University football coach Greg Schiano faces in recruiting and multiply them by a factor of 100. Then one might begin to appreciate Army coach Todd Berry's situation.
Not only is Berry required to field a team that can compete on a national level and in a major conference, but he is also expected to recruit individuals who can excel in an environment vastly different from any other private or public Division I institution.
Finding players tough for Army
Amber Petillon, a 6-foot-4 center from Brick Township, was granted her release from her scholarship and will transfer out of Rutgers University, she said last night.
