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.

To put it simply, the strength of St. Joseph's (Metuchen) offensive tackle Nick Krimin is his strength. Krimin is ready to sign a letter of intent Wednesday with Rutgers, and his ability to outmuscle his opponent is one of the reasons the new coaching staff at Rutgers was as impressed with him as the former one. Krimin is considered one of the sleepers of the Rutgers recruiting class, a player who may not make an immediate impact but one whose better...

Tyreek Williams said it wasn't always his dream to play big-time college football. His aspirations were more specific than that. "It always was my dream to play for Rutgers," Williams said. That dream will move a little closer to reality next Wednesday, when Williams is expected to sign a national letter of intent to play for the Scarlet Knights. Williams, a senior at Timber Creek, orally committed to Rutgers on Wednesday. Williams had committed to Buffalo in August. "I had a good relationship with the coaches at Buffalo," Williams said.

The slogan is new. The sentiment is old. Every Rutgers coach for the last 50 years or so has preached the importance of persuading New Jersey's top football players to stay home and play for the state university. Under new coach Chris Ash, the Scarlet Knights have summed up the strategy in three words, "Fence the Garden" - a clever Twitter hashtag and catchphrase that came courtesy of new receivers coach Zak Kuhr. Rick Mantz, the program's new director of high school relations, said the new staff is determined to make inroads in recruiting the state's top players and establishing strong connections with coaches in South Jersey.

John Lass ended his football career standing on the sideline on Thanksgiving eve, watching his Cherry Hill East team drop a 26-20 overtime decision to rival Cherry Hill West. The 6-foot-5, 270-pound Lass missed the Cougars' last five games after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in an Oct. 23 game against Washington Township. Cherry Hill East lost every game in Lass' absence, but none stung as sharply as the annual Battle for the Boot, as Cherry Hill West tied the score on a Hail Mary touchdown pass on the last play of regulation.

The definitive highlight for the Rutgers basketball program last season came on Jan. 11, 2015, when the Scarlet Knights knocked off Wisconsin, an eventual Final Four team, by 67-62 in Piscataway to even their record to 2-2 in their inaugural season in the Big Ten. Alas, that also was the most recent highlight. The Scarlet Knights have gone more than a year without winning a conference game - 20 consecutive defeats. They slipped to 0-5 in the Big Ten on Wednesday after losing at Ohio State, 94-68, a game they actually led at the half.

When it asks for its piece of the state funding pie, Rutgers University's facilities wish list will be heavy on renovation. The university's board of governors has scheduled a special meeting Thursday to sign off on a slew of projects for which it will seek $98.5 million in state funding. New Jersey has prepared a $180 million round of bond funding, a continuation of a pot that in 2013 allocated more than $1.3 billion to higher education construction and infrastructure projects. That money came from several sources, including a 2012 bond referendum authorizing $750 million.

Archbishop Wood quarterback Anthony Russo has backed out of his commitment from Rutgers and reopened his recruitment, he announced Monday night on Twitter. "The past few weeks praying and sitting down with my family, we have decided that it is in my best interest to decommit from Rutgers University," the 6-foot-4, 225-pounder wrote. It is expected that new Rutgers coach Chris Ash will run a spread attack with a dual-threat QB at the controls. That likely played a part in Russo's decision.
