Clearly it’s been a tough week for not only the Rutgers football program but everyone associated with the school. Saturday night the Scarlet Knights take the field against another school that knows what it’s like to deal with off the field distractions which can at times get ugly and my guess is Penn State fans will not have a lot of sympathy for the 4,000 or so Rutgers fans who make the trip to Happy Valley.
A little of this and a little of that today about the continuing drama at Rutgers, the most valuable sports teams and the "sort of" retirement party for Brick Memorial High School Athletic Director Bill Bruno.
I have never met Rutgers football coach Kyle Flood but everything I’ve heard about him from those that know him has been very positive. Stand-up guy, basically good-natured, hard-working. Just some of the ways the 44-year old Queens, New York native has been described to me.
On what is a solemn day to remember throughout America we also celebrate the first full weekend of high school football in New Jersey, a game that in the best of times can bring schools and even communities together. Of course as evidenced by what happened last year in Sayreville it can also tear them apart.
The Shore Sports Network’s Thursday Night High School Football Show returns tonight for its 9th season with a 90-minute show broadcast live from Baker’s Water Street Bar & Grille in Toms River and airing on 1160/1310AM with a live video stream on www.shoresportsnetwork.com.
A belated welcome back to those who may not be with me during the summer because their schedule changes with schools closed. Teachers, bus drivers, school support staff and of course parents, it’s good to have you back and I hope you had a good recess (do they still call it that?).
