New Jersey & DMC are both fertile recruiting areas. They're in the same territory as PA, IL & TSUN.
P.S we can debate with out u trying2 make me look stupid.
Posting hard numbers is not 'trying2 (sic) make you look stupid'.
Education wise we do well too.
Yes academically Rutgers is a mid-pack B1G school.
We will bring comp..to this BIG10 east in a couple of years.
Perhaps, but that's a big mountain and right now Rutgers is at the base looking up. The reality is that the RU athletic department is nowhere close to being competitive with other schools in the conference.
We not here for no cable deal,
Rutgers was added because it gives the B1G access to east coast media markets. That IS the bottom line. The other schools aren't taking a pay cut to add a new member & it's the only way that Rutgers was able to pay for it's membership. Nebraska moved the needle because it meant the addition of a championship game & it is a national name. Rutgers brought neither.
Kareem Walker prove that theory wrong,how bout Jabrill Pepper,an #1 Rashan Gary.
Increased access to new recruiting grounds is a nice ancillary benefit but it was not the reason the school was added.
Let's be frank, NJ recruiting already effectively belonged to the B1G (via PSU).
