Football

Coach Greg Schiano yesterday defended his decision to play true freshman quarterback Ryan Hart during Saturday's 45-14 loss to Syracuse, emphasizing the need to get Hart experience as well as the uncertain injury situation surrounding starting quarterback Ryan Cubit and backup Ted Trump.
For Rutgers, you just gotta have Hart: decision to play freshman QB adds drama to a souring season


Ted Trump walked gingerly through the visitors' dressing room at Syracuse, toward the locker designated his for the day. Head bowed, he helplessly looked for something to stuff in his gym bag, trying desperately to avoid eye contact.
Honest, open, and generally talkative, the senior quarterback is one of the most stand-up players on Rutgers' roster. Trump never shies away from blame, and is always generous with his comments. But Saturday, at Syracuse, Trump struggled to put two sentences together. Inserted to replace injured starter Ryan Cubit, he was yanked two quarters later - for a freshman who was supposed to be redshirted.
Schiano driven to desperation

Standing in the end zone of the empty Carrier Dome after Saturday's 45-14 loss at Syracuse, Rutgers football coach Greg Schiano explained his decision to burn the redshirt year of true freshman quarterback Ryan Hart.
He said he based it "almost exclusively" on the fact he suspected the elbow injury suffered by starting quarterback Ryan Cubit in the first quarter was "more serious than a one-game injury."

Commentment - Basketball

It will be a big announcement; everything concerning Rice's 7-3 center Shagari Alleyne is. But it may not be that big of a surprise when the senior announces today where he will play his college basketball.
Alleyne is expected to choose Rutgers over Kentucky, as sources close to him confirmed he was leaning that way as of the weekend.

High School Prospects

Albert Young didn't carry the ball from his running back spot until the opening drive of the second quarter.
However, the senior did touch the ball on Moorestown High School's second play of the game, a 45-yard pass from quarterback Matt Hegarty.
"I knew I was going to get the ball, so I wasn't worried," said Young, after accumulating 239 yards on just 11 carries as Moorestown overwhelmed an undermanned Paul VI team, 53-0, Friday in a Burlington/Olympic Football League game.

Around the Big East

During the game, they had made him mad enough to commit a personal foul. After it was over, though, a stream of Virginia Tech players walked over to Temple defensive lineman Dan Klecko, checking up on him, looking to find out why he had not been out there in the second half, raising havoc, getting double-teamed.
