On Dave Paich's recruiting analysis:
I have just read your item about Coach Schiano and his recruiting philosophy. It was thorough and upbeat. For a Rutgers fan whose days on the banks go back to 1955, I welcome anything that is upbeat about RU. In fact I like your web site very much.
On the first day of the Rutgers camp:
I was impressed by Joe Daley from St. Peters he looks very athletic. The tournament was run well by the Rutgers Staff.
