In assessing his squad following last weekend's loss to Syracuse, Rutgers coach Greg Schiano found a solid defense that was the strength of his football team, and a sputtering offense plagued by an offensive line he referred to as a "weakness" on repeated occasions at his weekly press conference on Tuesday.
So, in an effort to aid his offensive line, Schiano turned to the defensive side of the ball, moving sophomore defensive tackle Davon Clark to offensive guard, where he has practiced this week in preparation for Saturday's game against Miami.
DAVON ON BOARD: Clark switches sides to bolster O-line
As Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano said, "consistency is the key to a good offense," and over the past two weeks, senior wide receiver Josh Hobbs has been nothing but consistent.
In the last two games, he has nine receptions for 158 yards, boosting him to second on the team in receptions and receiving yards.
"Just knowing my role has allowed me to emerge." Hobbs said, "The [offensive] line gives the quarterback enough time and I have just been able to make the catches".
Hobbs shines in new role as third wideout
Ken Dorsey doesn't know a thing about Ryan Hart, and hadn't even heard until being told yesterday that Rutgers was planning to use its true freshman quarterback when No. 1-ranked Miami comes calling on Saturday. But he can appreciate the situation the 18-year-old Hart will find himself in this weekend and knows what it will mean for his long-term development.
Any playing experience, the Hurricanes' senior star said, is helpful when you're a young quarterback -- whether it happens early in the year, late, against a bad team or versus the nation's finest.
Dorsey speaks from experience

Around the Big East
According to a joking Rutgers coach Greg Schiano, it seems "more likely to see [Miami senior quarterback Ken Dorsey] checking out books as a librarian" than as the field general for the nation's top-ranked team.
"Ken is one of my favorite guys. I enjoyed being around him, he's a great kid," said Schiano, who went on to praise the quarterback's work ethic in the weight room and commitment to studying film.

Around the Big East - Basketball
The big men of Seton Hall University's basketball team took turns in the post-up drill. One by one, they set up on the low block, back to the basket, and took passes from coach Louis Orr. Orr watched, mostly in silence, as they caught, spun and shot. When Kelly Whitney's turn came up, and the 6-foot-8 freshman clanged his shot off the front iron, the soft-spoken coach's voice came to life.
That's going to be the battle cry for Orr and the Pirates faithful this winter. Whitney, who brings a muscular 228 pounds and a guard-quick first step from his hometown of Chicago, has been thrust into a prominent role by the Pirates' sketchy frontcourt situation.
Seton Hall's Whitney eager to make an impact
From a non-call Saturday that cost Penn State a potential game-winning drive at Ohio State, to the wrong call two weeks ago that gave USC a touchdown it didn't deserve, college football officiating blunders keep piling up in the games that matter most.
As the season rolls on and the stakes grow higher, every crucial flag dropped or whistle not blown could mean $13 million in somebody else's pocket. Just look at the Trojans, who were the beneficiaries of a gift touchdown that beat California two weeks ago, keeping alive their BCS hopes and the big-money payout that comes with it.
