Only an idiot would not realize why Greg Schiano was given a two-year contract extension the other day. That would be the same idiot who wanted him fired last month. This entire program might be balanced on the ultimate success of Schiano. Do you really think the shoulders of Rutgers University can balance this expensive exercise forever?

Around the Big East

Like his counterparts around the country, Bobby Wallace is just coming off the road. The Temple football coach had been away, looking up some recruits he targeted to help upgrade his squad and replace the 22 seniors who a few weeks ago suited up as Owls for the last time.
The NCAA fall recruiting period ended last Friday. After the first week of January, coaching staffs will have the rest of the month to convince prospective players to come to their schools.
