Head coach Kyle Flood’s three-game suspension that doesn’t include a ban from practice is so dubious that it tells you two things: Rutgers administration’s motive and how it got to this point.
Right before then-sophomore running back P.J. James’ first game on scholarship for the Rutgers football team, he imagined greatness. With 182 rushing yards in the Aug. 29 season opener against Fresno State, including two runs for 50-plus yards, imagination became reality. The walk-on validated head coach Kyle Flood’s decision to start him for the rest of the season, when healthy, over then-junior Savon Huggins.
Today, New Jersey legalizes same-sex marriage, the Rutgers football team bounces back from its loss to Louisville and those on both sides of the Israel-Palestine debate still fail to let you get a word in edgewise so they can recite their broken-record opinions.

Every so often, a band comes around that is just too eclectic to be taken seriously. That band is indefinitely Foxy Shazam - they have struck musical gold with The Church of Rock and Roll.

Having undergone a heavy amount of personnel and stylistic changes, Foxy Shazam's The Church of Rock and Roll stands out as a rock 'n roll gem.
