Former RU standout Quincy Douby (5) was one player who gave Big
East fans a reason to watch even bad conference teams.

Big East a shining pearl after 30

Back in the summer of '79, times did not seem much different than now. A team from Pennsylvania was on its way to a World Series Championship. The country was embroiled in an energy crisis and an unpopular, lame duck president was in office. But don't throw the Big East Conference in that paragon.


Big East Midweek Report

The parity that is the Big East continued last week as No. 16 South Florida (6-2, 1-2) dropped another Big East contest with the 24-20 loss to Louisville (5-2, 2-1).

Former Rutgers wide receiver Kenny Britt is projected as a late

Running the table not out of question

Push the last two games to the back of your mind. That's what the Rutgers football team did. Remember it, and everything that went right, but don't dwell on it. There is a lot more football to be played.


Pair gives RU offense fresh take

Make no mistake about it, the Rutgers men's soccer team is experiencing a youth movement on the soccer field. The Knights regularly start five sophomores and five freshmen in front of senior goalkeeper Amir Haghshenas. Leading the frontline in attack are freshmen strikers Gaetano Panuccio and Ibrahim Kamara.

Senior defender Jenifer Anzivino is one-fourth of a back line
that has allowed only one goal this season.

Keeper's best save is off pitch

Standing a game out of the final postseason spot for the Big East Tournament, the Rutgers men's soccer team will most likely have to win out in their final two games, both against nationally ranked top-10 opponents. It sounds like an extremely daunting task, unless it's put in the proper perspective.


Scarlet Knights score wet and wild upset

Facing the No. 14 ranked team in the nation, and coming off its three worst games of the year, all losses, the Rutgers men's soccer team was in a must win situation. Two points out of a playoff spot, with three games to go, the Scarlet Knights desperately needed a win. And about the only people who had faith in them were in their locker room.


Knight Notebook

PITTSBURGH—You might as well throw out the offensive record books because the Rutgers football team completely rewrote them with an offensive explosion Saturday in the 54-34 win over No. 17 Pittsburgh.


Huskies dominate preseason coaches poll

NEW YORK — Two teams have dominated the top of the Big East in recent years — Rutgers and Connecticut. But yesterday it wasn't even close who the top team in the conference, and the nation, was according to the coaches. Connecticut garnered 14 of 15 possible first-place votes in the Big East's Coaches' Poll with Rutgers and Louisville both earning one first-place vote.

Tight end Shamar Graves emerged as a safety blanket late last
season with 227 yards and three touchdowns.

Saturday's running back distribution, or lack thereof, left Rutgers football head coach Greg Schiano bothered by the notion that the team has settled on sophomore Kordell Young as their lone tailback.
