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.

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.

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.

A New Jersey appeals court has upheld Gov. Christie's appointment of a Hispanic civil rights activist to the Rutgers University board of governors, ruling against the state's top elected Democrat. Martín Perez's December 2012 appointment to Rutgers' main governing body, which took effect last July, "was a proper exercise" of Christie's authority, three judges ruled Tuesday. Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester) had sought to block Perez's appointment. He said Tuesday he would accept the decision, though he did not agree with it. "I'm glad it's over and so I will continue serving my state and my university," Perez, 65, said by phone Tuesday.

CHICAGO - Rutgers defensive tackle Darius Hamilton didn't seem fazed in the least when he was informed that the vast majority of offensive linemen in his team's new conference - the Big Ten - are built along the lines of corn-fed Midwestern cattle. At 6-foot-4 and 255 pounds, the junior from West Paterson, N.J., who led the Scarlet Knights last season with 111/2 tackles for loss, has been accustomed to facing bigger opponents. "I can honestly say that I've never been the biggest guy," Hamilton said Monday during Rutgers' debut at Big Ten football media days.

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.

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.
