After having their Tuesday night game against St. John's
postponed, Robbie McLarney (8) and the Rutgers men's soccer team
will travel to South Florida Saturday night before coming back to
Yurcak field for a Monday night game against the Red Storm.

Rainout leads to difficult pair of weekend games

When University students woke up Tuesday morning they were treated to an early Halloween treat, with flurries falling from the sky and snow covering the ground. While everyone else was dreaming that their classes would get snowed out, the Rutgers men's soccer team received the cancellation notice they were not looking for: that night's game against St. John's had been postponed.


Czar, Villanova pose challenge in tri-meet

The Rutgers swimming and diving team will take to the water to try and capture its second tri-meet victory in as many weeks when they host another pair of teams at the Aquatic Center this weekend, this time against Big East contenders Villanova and Connecticut.


Euphoria for Philly

It's not supposed to happen this way. Not for Philadelphia fans. Rocco Baldelli's crack to left into the teeth of the wind at Citizen's Bank Park was supposed to prompt an epic World Series comeback that would end with Philadelphia once again being the brunt of jokes for the rest of the nation.

Sophomore guard Corey Chandler picked up some slack on the
offensive end, dropping 10 points and adding five rebounds.

Chandler takes step forward from '07-08

Last season Corey Chandler was in Mike Rosario's position. He was the star recruit coming out of Newark. The one with the sweet jumper and a lightning quick first step. The reason why Rutgers fans spent an entire summer indoors, glued to their computers, watching highlight videos on YouTube.

Since regaining his starting role against Connecticut, Rutgers
junior tight end Shamar Graves has made three catches, including a
32-yard snare that he took to the two-yard line against

Tight end returns from Grave

Shamar Graves will find himself in a familiar position when the Rutgers football team's offense takes the field next Saturday, a position he is dedicated to keeping this time around.

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
first round or early second round pick on draft expert Mike
Mayock's board after leaving the Knights as a junior.

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.
