Seton Hall University law Dean Patrick E. Hobbs gave each 2015 graduate a quarter, painted red, in a plastic case. "It's a symbol. Red means danger," Hobbs said at the graduation in May. "The quarter is to remind you that in times of trouble, or doubt, or jeopardy, I want you to call me. . . . I'll get you through that moment. " Hobbs has long been a go-to guy in a crisis. Now, Rutgers University has tapped Hobbs to run its athletics department, marred by a string of scandals, including the firing of the basketball coach in 2013 and the arrests of seven football players on various charges this season.

"You have three insiders essentially taking on Cory Booker, all with similar messages," said Julian Zelizer, a Princeton University political historian.

Under a plan announced Wednesday, they'll get a tuition break so steep they'll be paying the same rate as an in-state student at public Rutgers University. To qualify, students would have to apply by Dec. 15, rank in the top 10 percent of their high school class, and score at least 1,200 on the SAT or 27 on the ACT. Their yearly tuition would be $10,104, which would be frozen for four years as long as they maintain a 3.0 grade-point average.

It wasn't a tough decision. But was it the right one? Carl Smith sure thinks so. The Camden track standout could have gone to a college program that has good facilities and is in a warmer climate. Or the senior could have opted to stay closer to home and receive a full scholarship. Smith decided to go with the latter. Yesterday, the 18-year-old signed a scholarship to run track at Seton Hall University in South Orange. So how much is Smith's scholarship worth?
