Super-fast running back/wide receiver Orlando Kane will play for Rutgers. The Lawrence, New Jersey, star has already earned PrepStar All-Region honors. Orlando is 5-9, weighs 170 pounds and runs the forty-yard dash in 4.32 seconds. Last season he gained 1,600 yards and eleven touchdowns on the ground.

RutgersInsider.com -- Raising Kane
Rutgers added more speed to its lineup when Orlando Kane, a 5-9 running back from Lawrence High, announced yesterday he would attend the school. Kane rushed for 1,600 yards on 230 carries last season for Lawrence, but Rutgers targeted him as a receiver and special teams player. He had 11 catches for 198 yards and averaged 16.7 yards on punt returns and 24 yards on kickoff returns. The 170-pound back ran a 4.37 in the 40-yard dash.

Football - Bob Dieckmann's Years of Eligibility list
A glance at the matrix shows a few interesting things. My comments relate to quantity. I'll leave the qualitative comments for others.
1) On offense, the year-by-year placement at TE is perfect, and at WR it's quite good too. We'll need some extras in the OL to compensate for only two incoming OLs.
2) I sure hope all the incoming LBs make it (qualify) because the numbers game is getting tight.

He remains the right coach for Rutgers, the right man to do a most unforgiving job, ambitious enough and smart enough to fix what can be fixed and nurture what needs to grow. That may still result in a 3-8 record. It may still result in the Knights fattening what now stands as a 15-game losing streak inside the Big East.

Mason played in 11 of 12 games last season and had 13 tackles and one pass breakup as a reserve. The 6-foot-3, 185-pound player from Chester, Pa., was dismissed from SU in January because of academics. He attended University College last spring and this summer.

Opponent Football - Buffalo
DETROIT - The University at Buffalo's three-win season in 2001 offered a slight ray of hope for the future but, according to the media's assessment, the Bulls still have a long march to respectability.
UB, which finished 3-8 overall and 1-7 in the Mid-American Conference during coach Jim Hofher's inaugural season, was picked to finish last in the league's East Division in a vote by members of the media who cover the conference.
