Ray Rice averaged 5 yards a carry because he had about a billion carries every year.

I wouldn't call Rice "elite" but he was a very good college back and he basically carried that offense the past two seasons. To me, his biggest asset was that he was just flat out a work horse... Most backs, if given as many carries as he was, would have physically broken down and had as lot of injuries that he just never had. IMO if Slaton had been given as many carries as Rice he would have been hurt all the time.

In the three seasons that both Rice and Slaton were primary starters, Rice carried the ball 910 times while Slaton only had 664 carries. That kind of physical beating is going to knock most guys out of the game and that's what Rutgers will miss the most about Rice.

You left off Syracuse. Certainly Syracuse is a Big East team moving in the right direction...because when you are at the rock bottom of DI-A football, there isn't anywhere else to go but up :)

haha Well, I didn't really think of it that way Psy... mainly because I don't see them crawling out of the basement anytime soon.

They've become the new Temple of the Big East.

That's for sure, and I don't really mind them being the bottom-feeders (as long as they either win a few non-conference games or at least start scheduling MAC and Sun Belt teams instead of scheduling 3 Big 10 teams every year)

Since the 1992 fight that got our starters ejected and cost us the game (even though their player started the fight but didn't get tossed - that was Harrison I believe) I've never liked them (probably dislike them more than Pitt, but that is debatable. Then, when they were willing to stab the Big East in the back and go running to the ACC, I lost what little respect I still had for them

Plus, I never really liked Coach Pastromi or Pantaloni or Pasqualoni (whatever the heck his name was). That guy was creepy

And how long is Greg Robinson going to be allowed to keep that job anyway? I can't believe he hasn't been fired yet.

Rutger is a decent school and it is pretty close to NYC (taxi and a train ride) that very appealing also schiano is a very good coach but I don't think he'll stay at Rutger too long. They have a very small stadium and New Jersey won't built it any bigger.
I Joe Pa leaves PSU Schiano is G O N E gone!

Let's not forget that Schiano had a chance to take the Michigan job before Rod as it was offered to him and he flatly turned it down.

That to me speaks to his commitment to the RU program and the school and fans. These young guys are not as stupid and some think, they fully understand that Schiano turned his back on the "storied" program at Michigan to stay loyal to RU. I think that's the main reason these players are committing to RU, they trust Schiano.


Having said that, Stu and Doc and the paint crew will catch up by LOI day and likely sign more 4 and 5 stars than RU.

I believe Schiano already coached at Penn State. He also has said that he would be interesed in the job.

It doesn't matter because JoePa will never die, or at least it will appear that way. I see PSU attempting to pass him off as immortal by pulling a "Weekend at Bernie's" after JoePa finally expires. Anybody know a good taxidermist?

I still mystified how Syracuse can be so bad with its history. I think they are the poster child for teams like WVU who may think that it can't happen, that they will always be at the top.

What I mean by that is there is a tremendous effort that goes into to making a successful D-1 program. Then on top of that you have to execute i.e. you have to get results. We have really been blessed with some good football people over the last 27 years that have built WVU into a competitive college program despite having very little home recruiting base and no major media market.

If you think of our success in those terms it is amazing.
