I've personally been a little preoccupied with Rutgers football... huge game this Saturday against that team from Pennsylvania.
Not to go too OT but: Any PSU grads frequent these forums?
I'm a PSU grad who attended when they first joined the Big 10. A lot of my extended family are Rutgers Grads, and I was happy for them when they joined the Big 10.
That being said, if this is going to be a real rivalry, it has to grow organically. Knowing the geography (and there were a lot on NJ residents attending when I went), its good on paper as far as I'm concerned. I was furunate to be there with some good teams, but I didn't feel their rivals were legit until a few years in.
I think your're going to see a lot on Blue in the stands. Heck, I even tried to hit Stubhub, but it aint worth $140 to me. I know the irony in this statement since I hate when I see that in Newark.
