    Honestly, the smartest move for them may be to just suck up being an FCS program with no ambitions for the next 5 years. Then invest heavily in a rebuild.
    Or just go deeper in the red with a neverending vicious cycle.
    In 10 years, their facilities will be out of date again.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    I'm not of the opinion that Rutgers should leave the Big Ten, but if this is what they think is the solution to their problems, they can start packing their bags right fucking now.

    Sad thing is, their first year in the conference they beat WSU in a bowl game. They get to and maintain that level, which they really should be able to do, they’re pulling their weight.

    Wazzu was a "neutral field" opener in Seattle, which they did win. They beat North Carolina in their bowl.

    That was with Schiano's seniors.

    If we really need the New York market, we can replace Rutgers with Fordham. Probably more competitive, actually.

    I refuse to care how bad they are until such time the SEC is forced to stop playing FCS schools in November.

    Til then why would anyone want them to be anything more than the speed bump they currently are?

    Their shittiness is alsp exaggerated.
    See ACC ... look at GTech, for example.
    They're bad... but the level of their suck is par for the course of P5 bottom feeders.

    Rutgers fans, take a bow: Greg Schiano’s return is happening because you took action

    Rutgers fans, this day is all about you. Take a victory lap around your living room. Throw some confetti at your dog. Take that No. 23 Brian Leonard jersey out from the back of your closet and wear it proudly to breakfast, to church, even to bed later tonight.

    You did this.

    Greg Schiano is returning as your football coach, and in the coming days, all sorts of people will take a bow for making it happen. Politicians. Boosters. Former players. University officials. The line for back patting will be as long as the line for tickets before the Louisville game in 2006, and to be clear, this deal needed help from all corners to push it across the finish line.

    It was dead -- D-E-A-D -- a week ago today. Rutgers athletic director Patrick Hobbs had begun reaching out to his Plan B coaching candidates. This whole saga was spiraling toward the most unappealing ending, with a press conference to introduce someone who was likely dead on arrival as he faced the monumental task of rebuilding this program.

    Then a funny thing happened. You happened. You freaked the hell out. You went bonkers on social media. You clogged the phone lines in Trenton. You promised $52 donations on Twitter until the total approached $400,000. You sent hundreds upon hundreds of emails, insisting that you were done buying tickets or making donations.

    I have never in 25 years covering sports seen anything like it, and quite frankly, I didn’t think you had it in you.

    Can you blame me? Over the latter part of this decade, this fan base has closely resembled the team on the field -- a beaten down shell of its former self. Ticket sales had plummeted. The diehards who kept showing up sounded defeated before the first kickoff in late summer, and three months later, were often wondering why they even bothered.

    Then, just when people were finally expecting good news, the opposite happened. “Greg Schiano will not return as Rutgers coach!” our headline screamed last Sunday. Rutgers officials insisted behind the scenes that they were ready for the backlash, but over the next 48 hours, the vitriol and rage changed the narrative completely.

    Cont'd ...

    Probably flipping to uga but if schiano can flip a commit from the cult to Rutgers the tears at bwi will be extra salty.

    They are already saying how he isn't really any good and has been recruited over. But Franklin doesn't "process" recruits like OSU and scUM.
    Plus, apparently the young man suffered a pretty nasty ankle injury in the last few weeks.

    I've seen links on Twitter and the recruits actually have 247 bios. Seems like a start. Tyreem Powell was a huge get for him.

    Has he assembled any staff yet?
