RU Football 2003 Review

"Cynics love to rip Rutgers. But for the 100th time, we're warning be wary of the Scarlet Knights. Yeah, they lost to Villanova and Buffalo last season, but Greg Schiano's boys finally will come of age. Rutgers biggest problem, a dreadful O-line, should be much improved under the direction of new line coach Mario Christobal, a former all-Big East lineman at Miami. Christobal also now has four new athletic 300-pounders to work with. The Knights also will have one of the country's best-kept-secret recruits in speedy wideout Marcus Daniels from Miami. Oh, and one other thing to remember, for all the talk about how Schiano has only targeted South Florida, just remember that Rutgers did end up with New Jersey's two top prep recruits in the past two years: linebacker Berkeley Hutchinson and DT Nate Robinson. He also has a commitment from the state's top QB recruit this fall, Mike Teel, who plays for the East's top team Don Bosco Prep."
