On Rutgers football and new site:
I'm a huge RU Football fan, and I can't help but feel like the program is moving in the right direction. I certainly believe that Schiano has made a positive impact on the recruiting atmosphere in the Garden State. Is Rutgers so bad that LoVecchio would chose Indiana football over RU? Afterall, we're not taking about the Hoosier basketball program.
Anyway, I just want you to know that I appreciate all your efforts. Unfortunately, I was laid off last month. I'm about to be hired be a new company, and the first thing I do when I sign on the dotted line is to subscribe to the new site. I'm not so certain that I don't like the old site better, but I'm happy to do it just to show my support to you and the Big Dog.
