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.

Since Rutgers chemistry professor Robert Boikess successfully urged faculty last month to oppose Condoleezza Rice as commencement speaker for her role in the Iraq war, he has been called "racist," "liberal" - and worse. The selection of the former secretary of state has set off nothing short of a firestorm on campus with Boikess and his colleagues planning a "teach-in," launching a website to build opposition, and filing a flurry of public records requests aimed at uncovering how Rice was invited.

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 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.

Tom Savage can now play quarterback where he wants. On Monday, Rutgers football coach Greg Schiano granted permission to Savage, his former starting QB, to contact Miami and Florida about transferring, the Newark Star-Ledger reported. This was the same day an appeals committee at Rutgers upheld Schiano's decision to block Miami and Florida from recruiting the former Cardinal O'Hara High quarterback. NCAA rules allow schools to choose where players can seek a transfer. "I have a better understanding of his reasons for wanting to contact those schools after speaking with him," Schiano told the Star-Ledger.

Tom Savage harbors no ill feelings toward Rutgers' football program, but he felt a change was needed. On Saturday, Rutgers announced that Savage, who was a starting quarterback as a freshman, has decided to transfer after an injury-plagued sophomore season in which he lost his starting position to freshman Chas Dodd. "We felt it was best to get a fresh start," Savage said in a phone interview with The Inquirer on Saturday night. A star quarterback at Cardinal O'Hara who was considered a prime recruit when he committed to Rutgers, Savage insisted that there was no friction between himself and coach Greg Schiano.

Henry Bibb was just 10 the first time he ran away. In the antebellum South, Bibb fled slavery many more times, eventually finding his freedom and becoming an author and abolitionist. "Believe me when I say that no tongue, nor pen ever has or can express the horrors of American Slavery," he wrote in 1849. "I despair in finding language to express adequately the deep feeling of my soul as I contemplate the past history of my life. " His story - one of thousands of surviving slave narratives - is part of research by Rutgers-Camden associate professor Keith Green, who uses it to help dissect and expand the meaning of slavery.

CAMDEN The growth of Camden's medical corridor and academic expansion through a Rutgers-Camden and Rowan University partnership moved forward Monday with a full governing board being appointed and given broad power to act quickly. The creation of the Rowan University/Rutgers-Camden Board of Governors grew out of a 2012 legislative attempt - contentious at times - to merge the two campuses. Under a compromise, Rutgers and Rowan remain independent but partners in "meds and eds," which officials of each school on Monday vowed to support.

John Reid never bit on the gadget play. He was too seasoned for that. The St. Joseph's Prep cornerback reached behind him and snatched the interception with his right hand. La Salle picked the wrong guy last season to trick with a flea flicker. He was just a junior, but Reid was already a captain for the football power. And plays such as that have grabbed the attention of premier college programs. The 5-foot-10, 180-pounder has scholarship offers from Alabama, Notre Dame, Michigan, Michigan State, Miami, Penn State, and many others.

He has received scholarship offers from major programs across the country. And he said he wants to visit each of those colleges before the end of the summer. "I'm going to try to," he said. Each day makes that task harder, as McIlwain seems to gain suitors daily. Nebraska added an offer Thursday. Two days earlier, it was California.

TRENTON A respected polling institute offered an explanation Wednesday for why it was way off the mark predicting the margin of victory for two key New Jersey elections last fall: Chris Christie for governor and Cory Booker for U.S. Senate. Survey participants were influenced by the order in which questions were asked, according to a report released Wednesday by Langer Research Associates, which was commissioned by the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers University to study the error of its ways.

Already holding a Temple scholarship offer, Frankford's Shareef Miller saw what it was like to wear an Owls football jersey on Saturday afternoon. The highly recruited junior defensive end is one of Temple's local targets and was a key part of the Owls' junior day. The event featured some of the area's top junior football players, and Temple coaches gave them a tour of both Lincoln Financial Field and the North Broad Street Campus. Temple was Miller's first offer when the Owls came calling in December.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. Embracing criticism about its selection, Rutgers University affirmed Friday that it will host former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as the commencement speaker at its New Brunswick campus graduation in May. The university's board of governors approved Rice - and $35,000 compensation - at a Feb. 4 meeting. In the weeks since, criticism has emerged through opinions in the student newspaper, an online petition, and most recently, a resolution passed Feb. 27 by the campus' Faculty Council.
