The records are identical, and Rutgers and Syracuse have even shared some of the same problems this football season. But a cookie-cutter comparison is out of the question.
Despite similar records, Schiano is wary of Syracuse - Courier News

PISCATAWAY -- Tuesday night's football practice had drawn to a close. The sun had set behind Rutgers Stadium and the Scarlet Knights were heading into the locker room breathing steam in the cool evening air. In the center of the field three men were working overtime -- Rutgers offensive tackles/tight ends coach Mario Cristobal, sophomore tight end Chris Loomis and senior linebacker Steve Berson. They were polishing up Loomis' pass routes to the outside -- making his cuts sharper, trying to get a better burst and separation as he finished off his out-patterns.

PISCATAWAY -- A typical trip to the Carrier Dome in Syracuse jogs memories of a raucous and bellowing crowd, unusual sightlines and one of the most distinct home-field advantages in college football. But in the unusual journey that is becoming the 2002 Rutgers football season, it could be just the tonic for a team that has not collected a Big East victory since 1999

Rutgers is midway through the second year of the Greg Schiano building project. So far, it has little to show for it in terms of wins and losses. Schiano is 3-17 overall and 0-10 in the Big East since accepting the Rutgers challenge following the 2000 season. The Scarlet Knights lost to Connecticut last season and have lost to Division I-AA Villanova 37-19 and lowly Buffalo 34-11 ¯ both at home ¯ this season. But wait. The Knights also led Tennessee 14-7 on the road at halftime and gave Pittsburgh (23-3 loss) a much better game than Syracuse (48-24) did.
