The new color in Jameel McClairen's life is orange. Orange, as in Syracuse Orange. St. James' 6-foot, 4-inch linebacker-to-be, an Inquirer all-area third-team selection on the defensive line, orally committed to Syracuse on a football scholarship Wednesday night, and he plans to return a signed letter of intent through the mail Wednesday, the first day of the signing period. McClairen said he would redshirt next season then vie for one of three linebacker spots that are expected to open before the 1993 season.

Despite the football team's 2-0 record, all is not well at Rutgers. During last Friday's win over visiting Navy, a group of fans shouted insults and booed the Midshipmen, sparking outrage in the Rutgers administration. So, in Wednesday's issue of the Daily Targum, Rutgers' student newspaper, athletic director Bob Mulcahy wrote an open letter that took issue with "the small group of students" who "hurled jeers and vulgarities at the Navy football team. " Mulcahy wrote that the fans' actions "embarrassed the university, the alumni and Rutgers fans across the state.

Penn outrowed Rutgers in a close race for the Lev Brett Cup in lightweight competition in yesterday's chilly weather on the Schuylkill. Penn held a slight advantage most of the way down the river and held off Rutgers' spurt at the end by slightly more than one-quarter of a boat length. Penn sped the 2,000-meter course in 6 minutes, 0.4 seconds with a favoring strong tail wind. Rutgers was clocked in 6:01.6. Georgetown held off Drexel in the varsity eight of the regatta on the Schuylkill sponsored by Drexel.

Delran graduate Erica "Boo" Schubert, The Inquirer's South Jersey female athlete of the year in 1999, is transferring from the University of Florida to Rutgers after two seasons of playing for the Gators' soccer team. Schubert will not have to sit out a year after receiving her release from Florida. In soccer, a player can transfer once without sitting out if the school the player is leaving signs a release form. Schubert is transferring because she suffers from a gastrointestinal disorder and feels it can be better treated closer to home.

CLEVELAND - A quarter of a century is a long time to wait for a second opportunity, but that's how long it has taken C. Vivian Stringer to return to the NCAA women's championship game. Back in 1982, the NCAA finally had sanctioned women's basketball as a varsity sport, and Stringer was coaching at Cheyney State in the southwestern suburbs of Philadelphia. The Wolves missed out on a chance at immortality by losing the title game, 76-62, to Louisiana Tech in Norfolk, Va. Stringer couldn't have imagined that it would take her 25 years to coach in another national championship game.

Yesterday could have easily been "Rashidat Junaid Day" over at Camden Catholic High School. That's because you would have been hard-pressed to find anyone at the Cherry Hill campus not talking about the 2006 Irish graduate. People spoke of Junaid possibly winning an NCAA women's basketball championship in this, her freshman season at Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights face Tennessee in today's 8:30 p.m. national final at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. "I went into the main office [yesterday]

Drexel loses to Army one night and defeats Rutgers the next. Go figure. The Dragons, led by Brian Holden's 23 points, placed four players in double figures to defeat host Rutgers, 76-64, in a non-conference game last night. It was the Dragons' first victory over the Scarlet Knights in 13 meetings. On Monday, the Dragons were upset at Army, 70-67, in a game in which Holden shot just 3-for-15 and the team shot 24-for-74. Last night, the 6-4 junior guard was 6-for-12, including two three- pointers, and 12-for-13 from the foul line.

The Rutgers University boards voted this week to reduce the size of one of the governing boards, signaling an end to months of review - at times contentious and political - of the way the school is run. The university's largely advisory board of trustees voted Monday evening to decrease the number of its voting members to 41 from 59. Most of the 18 slots will be eliminated through attrition over about three years. The others will come from ending dual membership on the trustees and the primary governing body, the board of governors.

Gov. Christie has nominated to the Rutgers University board of governors a Democratic political strategist who in 2013 oversaw a fund-raising effort that underwrote attack ads against New Jersey Republicans running for the Legislature. Susan M. McCue, a former chief of staff to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.), is a New Jersey native and Rutgers graduate. She launched the Fund for Jobs, Growth and Security, a super PAC that in 2013 spent more than $8 million in support of Democrats vying for seats in the New Jersey Legislature.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - What kind of winter will it be? Severe as last year's, or milder like two previous ones? Can an early snow in Siberia affect weather in Philadelphia, and what impact will El Niño have? Rutgers University's Global Snow Lab in Piscataway tries to answer those questions using raw federal data on the snow cover in North America and Eurasia to create maps and long-term climate records to aid forecasting. Bottom line, the winter of 2014-15 will likely be "volatile" across the region, said New Jersey state climatologist David Robinson, director of the snow lab. "I've been standoffish until now" to make a prediction.

Shareef Miller is the city's top uncommitted senior football player. College coaches keep in touch daily. Scouts from three Division I programs attended the same game. Washington High's 6-foot-4, 225-pound defensive end is a commodity among college coaches. Those coaches that are trying to woo him should know one thing: hold off on the football talk. "I don't really like hearing about the football part first. I want to hear about the academics," Miller said after the Eagles finished practice Wednesday night.

A PILE OF spareribs and turkey bones sits on Stephen Danley's otherwise empty plate in a Camden soul-food restaurant, and on his way up for seconds he also gets his second hug of the afternoon. The warm greetings that Danley receives at Corrine's Place on Haddon Avenue are an indication that the 6-foot-9 former power forward on the University of Pennsylvania basketball team isn't just studying Camden as an assistant professor of public policy at Rutgers-Camden. Danley's living it. "I decided I was going to really get to know Camden, block by block.

JIM MOFFATT once wrote that he used to tell his journalism students at Rutgers-Camden, "Just remember that while you guys are doing sex and drugs on Friday nights, I'm chasing commas at the Inquirer. " It never failed to get a laugh, although he wrote that once, after delivering the quip, an older student remarked, "Mr. Moffatt, you ought to get a life. " "Gee, I said to myself, I thought I had a life," he wrote. The piece was a sort of farewell note to the newspaper business, printed in the Inquirer on Nov. 11, 1996, shortly before his retirement after 32 years as a copy editor.

As colleagues in New Brunswick and Newark, N.J., held larger demonstrations, professors and other union members held a small rally at Rutgers-Camden to push for progress in ongoing labor negotiations. Like many at the Rutgers-Camden rally, art history professor Martin Rosenberg said the university focused on athletics at the expense of academics. "We're on completely the wrong track," he said. "I don't give a damn about the football team. " Over the course of the hour-long rally, 15 to 20 professors and staff held signs and spoke out against what they called misguided priorities.

Kelvin Harmon knew something was different about Max Smyth after that week in Louisiana. Smyth wasn't taller. He wasn't heavier. He wasn't sporting a new haircut, clothes style, or tattoo. But he was changed. "When he came back, you could see something was going on," Harmon said of his Palmyra football teammate. "He was ready to go. He was like, 'Let's do this.' " Palmyra coach Jack Geisel said "the light went on" when Smyth attended the Manning Passing Academy in July at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, La. Geisel thinks Smyth became a top quarterback in the summer.
