While Rutgers adjusts to the rugged competition, the school and its fans are excited about the benefits that being in the Big Ten will bring the football program. A program-record 30,721 football season tickets have been sold, breaking the old mark of 30,500 set in 2009.

There were times last fall when the man stayed in the tunnel at Lincoln Financial Field, catching a portion of a Temple football game. Going out to the field might have created a stir.

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.

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.

Early in his football career, Irv Charles was an offensive lineman. Brad Hawkins was a quarterback. Juwan Johnson was a running back. Cameron Chambers has been a wide receiver since he put on a helmet at age 6, but that just means the Timber Creek junior has been ahead of the curve for most of his life. What all four South Jersey stars have come to realize is that they play the sport's new glamour position: the hot spot for the best athletes and the prize college recruits.

His size, 6-foot-6 and 275 pounds, screams offensive lineman. But don't be fooled by that. Roman Catholic's Manny Taylor was an underdog when he attended the Big Man Academy camp at Rutgers a couple of months ago. Many of the participants had accounts on the recruiting website hudl.com. Taylor had none. Many had videos touting the greatest hits and blocks from their varsity games. Taylor had no video, because he had yet to play a varsity game. "Yeah, it's weird," the senior said of attending the camp and four days later accepting a scholarship offer from Rutgers after having played zero snaps of varsity football.

TRENTON - The New Jersey Senate on Monday confirmed the nomination of a Haddon Heights lawyer and ally of South Jersey Democrats to Rutgers University's main governing body. William M. Tambussi's appointment to the board of governors was part of the Democratic-controlled Senate's unanimous approval of a package of Gov. Christie's nominees for various state positions. Tambussi, 56, replaces former Assembly Speaker Joseph J. Roberts Jr., also of Camden County. A higher-education restructuring act that passed in 2012 requires one of the governor's eight appointees to the 15-member board to be a Camden County resident.

Drexel athletic director Eric Zillmer had no doubt Thursday's vote by the NCAA Division I board of directors would grant approval for the "Power Five" conferences to gain the autonomy to chart their own course. He also has no doubt this is the wrong course for college sports. He hopes schools override the vote, as Drexel plans to do. Zillmer believes the Big Ten, Pac-12, Southeastern Conference, Atlantic Coast Conference, and Big 12 are grabbing fistfuls of more power by hiding behind what Zillmer calls "their version of enhancing student welfare.
