When Patrick Hobbs took the job as Rutgers’ athletic director last December, there was no question as to what his first priority was.“Facilities, facilities, facilities,” he said, something his predecessor Julie Hermann had also preached but never fully committed towards in her two and a half years in Piscataway.But there Hobbs stood on the south side of the Rutgers Athletic Center Tuesday morning, leading the groundbreaking ceremony for a new multi-sport training facility just more than 11 months after the day of his official unveiling and 10 from the announcement of the R Big Ten Build Fundraising Initiative.
The Rutgers football team didn’t take the field last Saturday for the first time all season, but that didn’t stop one of its captains from spending an afternoon around the sport.“(I) watched a ton of football,” said senior defensive tackle Darius Hamilton on what he did during the bye week.
MINNEAPOLIS — A heart rate monitor hooked up to the Rutgers football team would have shown a flatline for the last few weeks of its season.

Head coach Chris Ash announced Monday that sophomore Giovanni Rescigno earned the starting nod behind center in this Saturday’s matchup with Minnesota (noon, ESPNU) in place of junior teammate Chris Laviano, whose streak of 18 consecutive starts will come to an end in Minneapolis.
For all the positives the Scarlet Knights had on offense against the Fighting Illini, one glaring negative held them back from breaking from their skid and led to the ultimate 24-7 loss on homecoming at High Point Solutions Stadium — five turnovers, four of which coming from fumbles.
For the first time in 18 games, the Rutgers football team will have a quarterback not named Chris Laviano behind senior center Derrick Nelson on its first offensive drive of a game.Head coach Chris Ash announced sophomore quarterback Giovanni Rescigno is the Scarlet Knights’ starter “moving forward,” starting this Saturday against Minnesota (4-2, 1-2) in Minneapolis, in his press conference previewing the matchup Monday.The change comes after Rutgers was outscored 174-14 in four losses to open its Big Ten schedule and ranks penultimate among 128 FBS teams in total offense with junior signal caller Laviano as the starter.In the limited action Rescigno has seen — two snaps against Howard Sept.
The Rutgers football team’s 24-7 loss to Illinois marked the sixth straight game in which head coach Chris Ash pulled junior quarterback Chris Laviano off the field, whether it be for a couple of drives midway through a tight game against Iowa or throughout the entirety of the final three quarters of a historic blowout against No. 4 Michigan.But after watching sophomore Giovanni Rescigno build on his one drive against Howard in the second week of the season by providing a spark for the Scarlet Knights’ as they looked to comeback against the Fighting Illini, Ash was finally convinced to do what fans have been begging for throughout the first half of the season.“It's completely open,” Ash said when asked about a quarterback competition following Saturday's loss.
The Rutgers football team is halfway through its first regular season under head coach Chris Ash, where the results have been far from optimal.The Scarlet Knights are 2-4 through six games, having been outscored 287-62 in the process of facing 3 of the top 5 teams in the nation throughout the stretch.The worst has come in the Knights’ two most recent games at No. 2 Ohio State and at home against No. 4 Michigan, where they completed just five passes and gained 155 total yards en route to losing both games by a combined 156-0.Things can really only go up from here.“I told the players, sometimes in life you hit rock bottom before you bounce up and go swinging and go in the right direction,” Ash told reporters in his post-practice availability Thursday.
The Rutgers men’s soccer team took a break from the gauntlet that is Big Ten play to host an out-of-conference opponent and in-state rival in Princeton.The Scarlet Knights entered the match coming off a 1-1 draw with Michigan Friday, the best result of a winless first 10 matches of the season, holding some form of momentum for one of the few times this year.But despite the momentum being on their side in an emotional battle for in-state bragging rights, the Knights were unable to get the monkey off their back as they fell to the Tigers Tuesday night, 4-1, to remain without a win with five games remaining in the regular season.“It’s just very disheartening, very disappointing,” said head coach Dan Donigan on the loss.
The Rutgers football team suffered its heaviest shutout loss since 1888 in a 78-0 bloodbath to No. 4 Michigan Saturday.
No. 4 Michigan (6-0, 2-0) showed Rutgers (2-4, 0-3) no mercy, piling on touchdown after touchdown in a display so dominant, the final score of 78-0 doesn’t come close to doing it justice.
The Rutgers men’s and women’s basketball teams hosted the first annual “MidKnight Madness” at the Rutgers Athletics Center Friday night, partaking in a number of competitions a little more than a month ahead of both teams’ season openers on November 11.
A secret society of Rutgers student leaders and alumni known as the "Order of the Bulls" left a message for University of Michigan Head Football Coach Jim Harbaugh in an email sent early Saturday morning to The Daily Targum.
No. 3 Louisville in 2006. No. 2 South Florida in 2007.Michigan in 2014.These three games, arguably the biggest victories in the history of the Rutgers football program, are all loosely connected by a single thread — they were all played under the bright lights of High Point Solutions Stadium in a primetime broadcast in front of a national audience.The Scarlet Knights have a chance to add to the list this Saturday against the No. 4 Wolverines in what will be the first annual "Stripe the Birthplace" game, a promotion run by the athletic department in which fans will alternate between black and red attire to literally stripe the stands of the Birthplace of College Football.“Hopefully it's a great atmosphere and a lot of fans show up,” said head coach Chris Ash of his first night game at the helm in Piscataway.
It was a crisp night in Piscataway on Oct. 5, 2014.
Heisman Trophy candidate, Michigan junior linebacker and East Orange native Jabrill Peppers returns to his home state to face Rutgers in Piscataway for the first time.
No. 4 Michigan is taking its show on the road for the first time after starting its season with four straight home games, going to the state its head coach has set up as a second home of sorts.In his first full recruiting class since becoming the Wolverines’ head coach in 2015, Jim Harbaugh brought in 5 of the top 8 recruits in New Jersey — including the nation’s top recruit on the defensive end Rashan Gary — and his cherry-picking of the Garden State doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon.The top prospect of New Jersey’s 2017 recruiting class Drew Singleton released a top 12 of his over 20 scholarship offers that contains both Michigan and Rutgers — the home state team that’s struggled to keep top programs like the Wolverines’ from stealing in-state recruits.
The Rutgers football team was back on the practice field Sunday, the day after suffering a historic 58-0 drubbing at the hands of No. 2 Ohio State with little positives to go off of.The mood reflected the previous day’s result as the Scarlet Knights (2-3, 0-1) went through the usual routine of meetings and recovery work on the day after a game.“Obviously it's a somber feeling when you go through a game like that,” said head coach Chris Ash a day removed from suffering the largest blowout in a Big Ten regular season game since 1981 to the program he left to come to Rutgers.
