Rutgers News Roundup

Rutgers is hitting the bigtime, with more success on the recruiting trail and more scrutiny over the athletic department. Although most of the negative articles seem to be reporters chasing a story more than a story waiting for reporters, it’s still news. And with that, here are a few worthwhile links I’ve read over the past few weeks.

Just a few of the key stories that have been written about in the lead up to the start of the next season. For which, I am happy to say, I can’t wait.

A Different Kind of Community?

Artifacts from the Raritan Landing settlement were found at the site of the football stadium expansion during the excavation in the south end zone. One of the key finds was the Rising Sun Tavern, a key meeting place during the heyday of the town. Which is why I find this quote so funny:

“This will be the gathering space for a whole new different type of community,” Elizabeth said.

How different, really? Drunk people will still be meeting up in the same place they did 200 years earlier.
