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.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - When Paul James arrived for his first training camp as a walk-on at Rutgers, he realized it would be a long climb to where he wanted to be. "I think I was, like, sixth on the depth chart at running back," James said earlier this week. "I didn't really get a lot of reps there. But I got my opportunity on scout team - kick returner and running back. That's where I found the opportunity to show what I could do. " James redshirted that first year and carried the football just five times the next.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Five times James Franklin hammered home what he wanted to talk about at his weekly news conference Tuesday, but he still had justifiable doubts about his attempt to steer the conversation. "I would like to talk about Rutgers, Rutgers, Rutgers, Rutgers and then maybe a little bit more about Rutgers," Franklin said as he addressed the media for the first time since the NCAA's announcement that the team's bowl ban had been lifted. "It's probably not going to happen, though.

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.

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.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Rutgers cheerleaders walked up the empty stands, plastered with looks of disgust. Thousands of zombie-like fans, decked head to toe in red, slowly filed out of the stadium. Some stuck around on the concourse and simply stared at the lit-up field. A night full of "R . . . U!" chants, defensive pressure and hope was undone so swiftly. Rutgers led Penn State for 98 percent of the game - all but the last 73 seconds. But, of course, those were the only seconds that mattered.

Rutgers University officials apologized profusely Monday for the unsportsmanlike conduct of their football fans who mocked the Jerry Sandusky child sexual-assault scandal during the school's weekend game against Big Ten rival Pennsylvania State University. In a one-page letter to Penn State president Eric J. Barron, Rutgers president Robert L. Barchi apologized for "offensive actions" of "a very small handful of our fans. " Photographs taken during Saturday's pregame tailgating outside High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, N.J., showed Rutgers fans wearing shirts that read "Beat Ped State," a derogatory reference to the Sandusky case.

For Penn State's players from New Jersey like Bill Belton, Brandon Bell, and Angelo Mangiro, coming back to the Garden State for one of the most historic games in the annals of Rutgers football and winning could not have been sweeter. Belton (Winslow Township High) raced 5 yards for a touchdown thanks to a terrific block by Mangiro, a junior center from Roxbury, N.J., with 1 minute, 13 seconds to play Saturday to give the Nittany Lions a 13-10 victory over the Scarlet Knights in the teams' Big Ten opener at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, N.J. Bell, a sophomore linebacker from Oakcrest High, had an interception in the fourth quarter, one of five thrown by Gary Nova.

The atmosphere created by the mix of a night game in front of a sellout crowd of more than 53,000 at High Point Solutions Stadium and a visiting traditional Eastern power is going to be electric. Penn State coach James Franklin has been asked more than a few times during the week whether the Nittany Lions will be ready to match the emotion of Rutgers when the two teams meet on what should be a special Saturday night in Piscataway, N.J. His answer always has been the same, that the Lions prepare the same way for every opponent, no matter how close it is in terms of mileage or its ranking or the fact that it's a Big Ten member.

Rutgers coach Kyle Flood and Penn State coach James Franklin deserve some applause for doing their little part to hype Saturday night's football game. Franklin got in the first shot in the spring, calling New Jersey (and Maryland) in-state recruiting territory for the Nittany Lions. Flood got the last word, often declining to put the words Penn and State together in the lead-up, preferring The team from Pennsylvania. That does have a kind of rhythmic charm. It's coincidental, by the way, that the Scarlet Knights open their life in the Big Ten Conference against TTFP.

STATE COLLEGE - You don't need a cartographer to confirm the obvious: Penn State is a school in Pennsylvania. However, Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood is driving home the point by not referring to Penn State as, well, Penn State. Rather, the third-year head coach uses terms like "the team from Pennsylvania" or "the neighbor to the west. " Penn State coach James Franklin took the high road Tuesday, saying he is "good about" Flood's comments. He also said he has a lot of respect for the coach.

STATE COLLEGE - Paul James is not an easy man to bring to the ground. Just ask Washington State. James, Rutgers' 6-foot, 205-pound running back, doesn't intimidate in stature, but rather his running style - he hits the hole with speed and power. After running for 173 yards and three touchdowns on 29 carries against the Cougars to open the season, James has caught the attention of Penn State, namely its linebackers. So far, the Nittany Lions' defensive front four have made things look easy.
