Rutgers Announces Football Hall of Fame Inductees
An 0-2 start, complete with losses to Division I-AA Villanova and Mid-America Athletic Conference also-ran Buffalo, created a sense of panic in the "State of Rutgers," as Rutgers coach Greg Schiano likes to refer to New Jersey and the state school's fan and recruiting base.
Years of disenchantment with a middling program -- the team has not had awinning campaign since 1992 and went to its only bowl game, the Garden State Bowl, in 1978 -- boiled to the surface in the form of boos and jeers at home games. There was a change at quarterback, brooding self-evaluation and countless same answers to the same question: "Yes, we will get this thing turned around."
A bit of optimism in the air as Rutgers gets rejuvenated
If there's one coaching belief that Greg Schiano clings to more than any other, it's this: Good defense starts with good run defense.
Maybe that explains why no one at Rutgers feels the need any longer to start running for cover when the Knights resume play following a bye this weekend.

Notre Dame coach Tyrone Willingham isn't much on mushy reunions; in fact he's not much on any outward display of emotion. But talking about Saturday's game against his former team, Stanford, has nearly turned him into Dick Vermeil.
