Last Wednesday, the New Jersey Public Interest Research Group (NJPIRG) held a brief media event outside Starbucks on George Street to highlight the release of their national organization’s “Chain Reaction Report.” The report grades the 25 largest chain restaurants in the country on their policies concerning the routine use of antibiotics in livestock.Terese Osborne, a School of Arts and Sciences sophomore and the coordinator of NJPIRG's Save Antibiotics campaign, said that Starbucks was chosen as the location for the event because its grade improved this year from an F to a D+.“The reason why we want these policies changed is because the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms is a major breeding ground for superbugs, or bacteria resistant to antibiotics, which is a huge public health issue,” Osborne said.

The struggles continued for the Rutgers football team when it was beaten down at home by No. 11 Ohio State by a score of 56-0.
There was a point Saturday night — sometime after the first wave of students and spectators filed out and before the second wave — where the Rutgers football team strung together two passes. Both forward, both illegal. On the same play.The Scarlet Knights were down 35-0, three minutes removed from halftime, and it still may not have been the lowest valley for them.Instead, that may have come when kicker Andrew Harte, with less than a minute to go in the game, sent a 32-yard field goal straight into the left goalpost. There's a metaphor in there somewhere.

Rutgers fans impatient with head coach Chris Ash's progress should look no further than the career of former head coach Greg Schiano.It at least should be a source of comfort to know that Ash's 3-11 start through roughly one and a half years at the helm of the Rutgers football team was prefaced by similar numbers from his predecessor two times over.
When you think of the Rutgers football program in the 21st century, the name Greg Schiano holds more weight than any, as he transformed the program from perennial cupcakes to an 11-2 season in 2006, reaching as high as No. 8 in the national polls.
