Scarlet Walk
This evening at approximately 7:30PM, this week's recruits will be doing their first of hopefully many Scarlet Walks. For those that are not familiar with the Scarlet Walk, it is a pre-game tradition where the members of the Rutgers Football team walk from Sutphen Road and touch the statue that represents the first football game, then go to the locker room.

Those who would like to provide the recruits with a Rutgers welcome with a cheer of "Rutgers wants you" are welcome to attend.


Stay tuned for the visitor's list...

Around the Big East

The Maxwell Award sat in a corner of Ken Dorsey's house for six months, collecting dust and taking up space next to the cat's litter box. Dorsey didn't even care.
His roommate, Brett Romberg, decided to clean it up and display it prominently in the living room with many of Dorsey's other trophies. Dorsey didn't even help.
A few weeks ago, the cat knocked the Maxwell Award to the ground and snapped it at the base, prompting Romberg to glue it back together. Dorsey didn't even notice.

Around the Nation

A majority of Heisman Trophy voters did their homework, hanging onto their ballots through last weekend and the last of college football's 700-plus games. Where it led them is anyone's guess.
Heisman suspense envelops fivesome

LeBron James didn't try to put on a one-man show. He did anyway.
Displaying his awesome skills to a national TV audience for the first time, America's best high school basketball player showed he's equal to all the incredible hype.
Now everyone knows. LeBron James isn't a myth, glossy magazine cover or urban legend. He's the real deal.
LeBron's a hit in TV debut

Poor Larry Johnson. He thinks nobody loves him.
This season, Penn State's outspoken senior running back eclipsed Lydell Mitchell's 31-year-old, single-season record with 2,015 yards rushing. He scored 23 touchdowns — 20 on the ground — and set an NCAA record by averaging 8.03yards per carry. The way he talks, the Heisman Trophy voters would be crazy to resist him when the award is presented tomorrow night at the Yale Club.
