The World's Worst Person In Sports Is ...

Julie Hermann, Athletic Director at Rutgers, is Keith Olbermann's worst person in sports today for her idiotic attack on one of the last remnants of the free press in New Jersey. She even beats out the NYPD and FDNY hockey teams and their bench-clearing brawl at Nassau Coliseum.

If Olbermann's video needs more context, here's a link to the original story at Muckgers.com that was later picked up by the local and national media and gave The Star-Ledger the headlines she tried to deny them.

National Championship Winners

The Rutgers women just completed their quest for the 2014 WNIT championship before 12,000 loud UTEP fans in El Paso.

Congratulations to C. Vivian Stringer and all the players, all of whom should be back next year to face the Big Ten.

Off Tackle Empire at SB Nation is looking for a Rutgers writer

If I knew anything about sports (on more than a casual and intermittent basis) I might apply myself, but click here if you or anyone you know might feel like contributing a Scarlet Knights' perspective to this Big Ten blog.

An R.U. Rooting Interest in the Winter Olympics.

In this off season for Scarlet Knights football, do any other fans of Rutgers find themselves inexplicably pulling for the Russians in Sochi?

BeatVisitor Dot Com Cleans House and Prepares for the B1G Time

On this day after the Pinstripe Bowl loss to the team with the most obnoxious drunken fans in college football (some Golden Dome supporters in section 322 provided a strong argument against ever serving beer at House), I decided to refresh the BeatVisitor dot com sidebar to your right (if you're viewing this on a non-mobile device). I've removed the links to the USFs and UConns and Temples and replaced them with links to the Ohio States and Penn States and Michigan States on our football schedule for the foreseeable future. If you know of any strong or humorous Big Ten blogs that I haven't included in this first pass, please suggest them in the comments.

I was thinking of mentioning the interim conference we're leaving, which I've never mentioned by name here in this blog, to complain about their bad officiating and petty money grubbing, but I won't bother naming them now; they're in our past. Rutgers should post a picture when their ugly logo is removed and the B1G logo is painted on our field. That will be a day to celebrate.

I've also placed the 2014 schedule high on the sidebar. 2013 is over. Life begins again in Seattle on August 28th. Keep Calm and Chop Cougars.

The Beat Visitor Bowl Poll

Please vote in the sidebar poll I've just added to the right, and which will be live until December 28th.

I have a strong feeling about this question, but I'd love to see how some of the Scarlet Knights' other fans feel about the importance of the Pinstripe Bowl to their final evaluation of this strange gap year in the Double-A C conference.

Will a win over Notre Dame in the Bronx make the 2013 Rutgers football season a total success, a partial success, or something much less?

Post-Game Update 12/29/13:
Well, we didn't beat the golden domers in Yankee Stadium yesterday, but here's a snapshot of the results of the (now meaningless) poll before I remove it from the sidebar:

Keep Calm and Chop USF

The last game of the season on Saturday will be for the Seniors, and our message from the stands should be simple ... and positive ... as we face the University of South Florida for what may be (we hope) the last time.
