Acting University President Norman Samuels and Gov. James E. McGreevey voiced their belief yesterday that for New Jersey to improve the higher education system; Rutgers University needs to be a part of that system.
The Vagelos commission, which is seeking to merge the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, New Jersey Institute of Technology and the University, is focused on bringing a new standard of excellence to the higher education system in the state, McGreevey said, yesterday, in the briefing room of the presidents' office in the Old Queens administration building.

Still seeking a spark for what has been an inept offense in all but one game this season, Syracuse head coach Paul Pasqualoni said Monday that senior Troy Nunes would start at quarterback for the Orangemen. Nunes will take over for junior R.J. Anderson, who injured his left shoulder in the second half of Saturday's 34-7 loss at West Virginia. Syracuse hosts Rutgers on Saturday afternoon in a game featuring two teams with identical records (1-6, 0-3 Big East).
"We're going to start Troy this week, kind of pick up where we left off in the game last week, see if it doesn't result in a little more production," said Pasqualoni, who expected Anderson to be at practice Monday. "Troy came in and really did a good job, really played solid, solid football. He took care of the ball, was tough."

High school Prospects

Before yesterday's game, Charles Timbers had a talk with his father. The short version was the elder Timbers didn't feel his son was playing like he used to, and he needed to step up his game.
And as Timbers proved during Long Branch's 35-0 nondivisional win against Marlboro, father knows best.
The senior transfer from Ocean Township rushed, passed, caught and returned his way to 275 all-purpose yards, scoring twice and setting the tone on the first play of the game.

They are the defending national champs. They have won 28 straight games, the longest winning streak in the nation. They are No. 1 in the media and the coaches' polls, and have held both spots since the start of the season.
So where do the Miami Hurricanes end up in the Bowl Championship Series standings? At No. 2, of course.
