The Senate was the first governing body to issue a formal response to the proposed merger. Chairman Paul Panayotatos read the Senate report discussing its views of the proposed merge titled the Initial Response to the Report of the New Jersey Commission on Health Science, Education and Training.

Rutgers Touchdown Club - News


With the game still scoreless in the first quarter of play, Rutgers cornerback DeWayne Thompson recovered a fumble by Notre Dame quarterback Carlyle Holiday, putting the Scarlet Knights on the 50-yard line with just over eight minutes left in the quarter. Eight plays and 48 yards later, the Knights found themselves with a new set of downs on the Irish two-yard line. But after two incomplete passes by quarterback Ryan Hart, Rutgers attempted an awkward quarterback sneak to break through to the end zone. As Hart tried to push his way through a tangled pile of linemen, the freshman QB fumbled on the Notre Dame one, giving the ball back to the Irish and ending RU's most promising drive of the day. Hart would fumble twice more before the end of the half.

Men's Basketball

Jerome Coleman, coming off the worst shooting performance of his career, promised to never again let down his coaches and teammates.
The senior shooting guard kept his word, scoring a game-high 28 points, including a pair of free throws with 15.9 seconds remaining to ice a 59-53 Rutgers victory over Temple before a crowd of 6,845 at the Liacouras Center yesterday.
Coleman leads Rutgers

After surrendering an 11-point second-half lead at North Carolina Wednesday night, the Rutgers men's basketball team watched an 18-point lead evaporate to four in the waning minutes against Temple last night.
The Scarlet Knights managed to escape the Liacouras Center with a 59-53 win, and they left Philadelphia with the knowledge that although they did not play well down the stretch, they still defeated a quality opponent on the road.
Rutgers avoids another last-minute collapse

For the first time in his Hall of Fame career, Temple basketball coach John Chaney is starting three freshmen.
Yesterday, as the wisest Owl opened his third decade on North Broad Street, it showed. And it doesn't figure to be the last time that so much youth isn't served.
Youthful Owls fall to Scarlet Knights

Gary Waters walked into the Rutgers locker room and wondered if he'd misread the scoreboard.
The Scarlet Knights had defeated Temple, 59-53, moments earlier at Liacouras Center, posting their biggest road victory during Waters' two seasons at Rutgers. At least, that's what the scoreboard said.
Lead stands up against Temple after late scare

After his 2-of-18 effort from the floor against North Carolina four days earlier, shooting guard Jerome Coleman desperately wanted to get off to a good start against Temple.
His first shot? A 27-foot air ball.
Coleman makes a statement

Women's Basketball

Senior guard Mauri Horton scored 23 points and sank a key 3-point basket as Rutgers went on a second-half tear to defeat California, 56-49, yesterday.
Horton's 3-pointer and a fast-break layup by Chelsea Newton, who had 10 points, finished a 15-8 run that gave Rutgers a 54-45 lead.

Maybe it's time to start thinking of Connecticut for something other than basketball. Like football, maybe?
The UConn players certainly are thinking that way after the biggest victory in the program's three years in Division I-A. The Huskies beat Iowa State 37-20 in their season finale on Saturday, dominating a team that was ranked ninth nationally in mid-October.
"We just put ourselves on the map," quarterback Dan Orlovsky said. "When people hear about UConn from now on, they're going to think basketball AND football. It's not only going to be a basketball school."
