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.

A Rutgers University professor who has twice attempted to run for president of Iran says he is disappointed, but not angry or surprised, that the United States reportedly has monitored his e-mail. The online news outlet the Intercept reported Wednesday that e-mail addresses linked to Hooshang Amirahmadi, along with four other prominent Muslim Americans, appeared on a list of more than 7,000 monitored by the FBI and National Security Agency beginning between 2002 and 2008. It remains unclear whether monitoring continues.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Kyle Flood is like any other football coach, spending the offseason looking for ways to improve his team, and not looking past the season opener. But with Rutgers celebrating its official entry Tuesday into the Big Ten Conference, Flood saw nothing wrong with his players looking at the big picture, which includes eight new league opponents. "It's OK for our players right now to look at the schedule and see some of the most storied programs in the history of college football and say this is going to be a great opportunity for us to test ourselves against them," Flood said.

Locked in a struggle to reshape Rutgers University, New Jersey Senate President Stephen Sweeney last week declared a de facto three-month cease-fire even as he seemed to issue an ultimatum. Sweeney on Thursday gave the university's two governing boards - of trustees and governors - 90 days to act on recommendations laid out in an internal Rutgers report. Failure to do so, he said, would prompt the Assembly to move forward with legislation, already passed by the Senate, that would increase the number of politically appointed members on the board of governors.

TRENTON - State Senate President Stephen Sweeney said Thursday that he would give Rutgers University 90 days to change its governance structure, based on an internal university report, or he would move forward with controversial legislation to expand its governing board. If the board of governors and board of trustees do not act, Sweeney (D., Gloucester) said, he would deliver the legislation to the Assembly. "The proposition is simple: Rutgers has a chance to reform itself or the state will reform Rutgers," Sweeney said in a statement about an hour after the Senate passed the bill on a 22-13 vote.

TRENTON - New Jersey lawmakers voted Thursday to amend Senate President Stephen Sweeney's proposal to expand Rutgers University's board of governors, a day after the Legislature's counsel warned that it might not withstand a court challenge. The board's chairman, Gerald C. Harvey, said that he initially viewed the amendments "as proactive" but that they continue to address a nonexistent problem. In the latest twist in Sweeney's continuing battle to reshape Rutgers' leadership, the senator told reporters that it was Harvey who recommended the changes.

A memo issued Wednesday questions the legality of a bill that New Jersey's Senate president has introduced to expand the number of political appointees to Rutgers University's main governing board. The bill "may be held to be an impairment of the 1956 legislative contract between Rutgers and the state, implicating the contract clause of the constitution," reads the memo, which lawmakers requested from the Office of Legislative Services.

A report sought by New Jersey's top elected Democrat in a campaign to change the governance of Rutgers University did not specifically support the changes he has proposed. Legislation sponsored by State Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester) to increase the number of political appointees to Rutgers' main governing body has been scheduled for a full Senate vote Thursday. The Assembly Budget Committee will take up the corresponding bill the same day. The report was the product of a Rutgers task force appointed in August to evaluate the university's two-board governance structure and make recommendations for the future.

You remember that adage, Those who can, do. Those who can't, attempt to control education. Education is already a political hot mess before elected officials become involved. New Jersey Senate President and Gloucester County Democrat Stephen Sweeney's epic, ongoing battle over Rutgers University's governance makes Philadelphia City Council's issues with the public schools look like finger painting. Chartered a decade before independence as Queen's College, Rutgers evolved into the state university, with a 1956 act installing a powerful board of governors in addition to the historic board of trustees, which helped maintain the school's independence and limited political interference.
