Before sophomore running back P.J. James rushed for 113 yards and two touchdowns Saturday against South Florida, his positive day began when he awoke. “For some reason I felt like this was this was going to be a great day,” James said. Saturday was great for more than James, as the New York Yankees invited the Rutgers football team to Dec. 28’s New Era Pinstripe Bowl against Notre Dame.
Julie Hermann did not have the easiest of starts for a first-time athletic director after allegations surfaced of verbal abuse during her time as a volleyball coach at Tennessee. But just when Hermann seemed to finally be settled into her new position, another scandal broke within the athletic department.

Chas Dodd’s final game at High Point Solutions Stadium ended the same way as his first: a night-game victory putting hope in the hearts of the Piscataway faithful. The Rutgers football team received its best possible circumstance out of the senior quarterback’s 19-for-24 throwing performance in Saturday’s 31-6 victory against South Florida.
With P.J. James was listed as questionable leading up to Saturday night’s game against South Florida, the sophomore running back’s role became unclear once cleared to play. But as the game wore on, head coach Kyle Flood knew the answer. James received 26 carries in the Scarlet Knights’ 31-6 victory against USF, rushing for 113 yards and two touchdowns.
All things considered, few could have guessed before the season that Dec. 28 would mark déjà vu for senior quarterback Chas Dodd. But it will. Not long after its 31-6 win over South Florida on Saturday night, the Rutgers football team received an invitation to the New Era Pinstripe Bowl against Notre Dame at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.
It took less than 24 hours after the Rutgers football team’s 31-6 bowl-clinching victory for the fallout from the mediocre regular season to begin.

After the way the season has gone for the Rutgers football team, it is only fitting one of the Scarlet Knights’ (5-6, 2-5) best weapon’s status is unknown for their season finale.

Palmyra, N.J., located in the northwestern tip of Burlington County, is home to 7,398 residents, according to the 2010 United States Census. “It’s more of a family-oriented town,” said Quron Pratt, who calls the 2.5 square mile town home. “Everybody knows each other’s whole family since they were young. Everyone has grown up together because it’s a small town. It’s a great place to live and a great place to be.”
Senior defensive end Marcus Thompson’s initial hesitation picking a position when he joined the Rutgers football team was like a woman’s indecision when picking an outfit. Thompson entered the program in 2009 as a running back and linebacker from Boyd Anderson (Fla.) High School. He went from outside linebacker to defensive end to fullback, and then finally returned to defensive end.
Senior defensive end Jamil Merrell loves to berate, yell at and throw his gloves at Rutgers football kickers in practice. When the whole team practices field goal situations — generally toward the end of practices — sometimes kickers cannot get the 6-foot-4, 255-pounder out of their faces. “He just yells a whole bunch of wild junk, like ‘Oh, you can’t kick,’” said senior defensive end Marcus Thompson, cracking up at the thought of it.
Jamal Merrell and Jamil Merrell were born the same day, play defense, stand 6-foot-4 and have four common letters in their first names. The similarities end there. Rutgers head football coach Kyle Flood doesn’t have the time to list the twins’ differences. “How much time do you have?” Flood said when asked how they’re differences.
