Rutgers football program still makes alumni proud

Letter to the Editor

It seems only recently that we witnessed one of the greatest games in college football, the 2006 upset of Louisville.  For alumni and fans, that will forever be a pivotal and memorable game in Rutgers history.

As you prepare for perhaps your last encounter with the Cardinals, know that hundreds of thousands of us will be rooting, cheering and encouraging you all and wishing we could be there in the stands for you.  It may be “R” time, but we know it is really your time and that you will make the best of it.  

I want to thank all the staff, coaches and especially the players for all the hard work, effort and commitment that go into preparing for each game.  Your efforts, no matter what the outcome, are a source of pride and fellowship for many fans.  The desire to test your limits and push your personal accomplishments are the qualities that help define success and are among the factors that make watching sports of any kind worthwhile.

Best of Luck in Louisville! Go Knights!
