I have an idea for getting students into their seats on time...
Every game, students who have their tickets scanned at or before the time of kickoff are automatically entered into a drawing that is picked at halftime for a $10k prize. Either that or 100, $100 prizes. Is getting students to the game on time worth $70k a year to the AD?
Also, we could have it be sponsored and it wouldn't even cost us anything

They do the kickoff return thing now. Basically the same thing but they only win if we return our 1st kickoff for a TD
I think the Alley is great but IMO they need to find a way (without having a-hole rent a cops flex their muscles) to shut down those tailgates 30 minutes prior to kickoff. I time up my clean up each week perfectly. I get into the stadium under 10 minutes to go each time and it's a bit sad walking to the stadium and seeing how many people are hitting their tailgate stride and have no idea or no care that the game is going to kick off in 15-20 minutes.
Marcus Cooper is such a bizzare story.
Check out his stats from today: 2 INT's, 1 TD, 3 PD, 7 tackles (5 solo)
Really weird. He had a great rookie year and then disappeared for 2 years.
Moved to CB out of necessity his senior year, ends up getting drafted and having a decent NFL career
So I think we have a chance to win on Saturday but we can't afford a slow start and we'll need to catch a break. Their offense isn't really good. Their QB is good and they have a at WR who is decent but that's really it. Defensively their front 4 is big but not sure how good. Their back 7 is good. They struggle to stop the run and we have run the ball well in the first 3 games. These guys ain't OSU, this is typically a 7-8/8-4 program and we get them at home. I doubt we'll be able to throw the ball but we'll see, we should be competitive.
This whole Najee Clayton bullshit is such horsecrap - it doesn't make much sense on any level. . We desperately need LBs & he's sitting it out
this chicks seems to be into dudes that look like Rutgers recruit Mike Tverdov.
Johnathan Taylor definitely got faster this year. Although the competition he's playing against is pure shit.
Last night on sportscenter SVP called RU/Louisville 06 the best field storm of all time
Is it just me or Jellyman's just a dumbass who writes long posts that are lapped up by the crowd on RT for some unknown reason?

I never read what he writes because I didn't think he really knew what he was talking about.
Why does a video show Rutgers AD Pat Hobbs drinking a beer at a student tailgate? He explains
Rutgers AD Patrick Hobbs Throws Back a Beer at School-Sponsored Tailgate Party

PISCATAWAY — Hours after a website released a video that shows him drinking a beer at a student tailgate, Rutgers Athletics Director Pat Hobbs apologized for his actions and told NJ Advance Media he was trying to restore order to what was turning out to be an unruly atmosphere.
"My first concern is always for the safety and well-being of our students,'' Hobbs said. "Anyone who was at the (student tailgate) Saturday knows that I was acting to ensure that.''
On Aug. 31, Rutgers announced that it would sponsor a student tailgate at football home games this season. Dubbed "the Alley,'' the tailgate was located in a gravel lot across from the Werblin Recreation Center on the Busch Campus, approximately 400 yards from High Point Solutions Stadium.
On Tuesday, the university athletics department announced that it would be shutting down the student tailgate at home games for the remainder of the season, issuing a statement that read: "Regrettably, due to safety concerns, The Alley is no longer available for student tailgating.''
While the Rutgers statement gave no indication of whether university officials would revisit an alternative tailgate at a later time, Hobbs said "a number of concerns were raised'' about the tailgate and the Rutgers athletics department "did not feel we could fully address'' the potential issues.
School officials said the first tailgate for the Sept. 10 Howard game drew between 500 to 800 students. But after word spread on various social media streams, last Saturday's tailgate drew between 2,500 to 3,000 students.
Hobbs said he arrived just as the Rutgers police were issuing tickets and he got the sense that the crowd was getting out of control. Hobbs stood on top of a riser, grabbed a microphone to address the crowd and, according to multiple witnesses, the Rutgers AD helped control the situation by lauding the Rutgers Police Department and calling for the students to cheer them.
A video released by New Brunswick Today shows someone handing Hobbs a beer just before he leaves the stage. Hobbs says, "No, I can't drink that right now. No.''
Ten seconds go by and then Hobbs grabs a can, and quips: "I am of age. If they card me, I'm okay. All right, go RU.''
The video, headlined "Rutgers AD Patrick Hobbs Throws Back a Beer at School-Sponsored Tailgate Party,'' cuts off just as he appears to take a sip.
Hobbs said picking up the beer was "a mistake.''
"I regret that any action on my part can be interpreted as promoting the use of alcohol,'' he said. "That was certainly not my intention.''
On several occasions during his first 10 months as Rutgers AD, Hobbs has met with student leaders to discuss finding creative ways of getting students to attend games. While Rutgers distributes 10,000 free tickets to students for each game, student attendance has been up and down through the years and 12 p.m. start-times are considered more of a deterrent for student turnout (Rutgers' first four games are all noon kickoffs).
In announcing the Rutgers-sponsored tailgate in the week leading to the home opener, Hobbs said: "The Alley will be a fun, exciting place where students can get together on gameday. There was a need to address the tailgating options for our students and we are excited to provide them with this opportunity.''
Added Rutgers football coach Chris Ash in the statement: "We want to provide students with every opportunity to enjoy their football gameday experience. Student involvement is a critical element to the energy in the stadium and we look forward to them bringing that passion on gameday.''
While all Rutgers students were permitted to enter the student tailgate, school officials mandated that only student organizations to be allowed to reserve a spot in the lot. A total of 25 permits were administered on a first-come, first-serve basis on the Thursdays leading up to the first two home games.
In his opening statement following his team's first two home wins this season, Ash credited the students for creating an "exciting environment.''
"I thought our student section did a great job today,'' Ash said after the Sept. 10 win over Howard. "I was really pleased to see the turnout from them.''
Following last Saturday's triumph over New Mexico, Ash thanked the "students for showing up today and supporting the football team.''
"I thought once we got going,'' Ash added, "they actually helped us regain momentum in the game, create a lot of energy and excitement in that game for our football team and can't thank them enough.''
Probably still the best meal of my life tbh
I think an Oden package is coming soon. He was taking reps with the 1s today in certain situations. If you watch the NDSU game, their QB (who flood offered and got rejected by to commit to NDSU) was a threat to run and made a lot of plays with his legs.
RIP alley. I love that our AD pounded a beer. Fuck this PC world
No film of Oden throwing the ball, let him chuck it deep to Harris first play he comes in
that article on Hobbs sipping a beer made me mad but nothing makes me quite as mad at how the harvest moon owner posted a message catering to Iowa fans on their board and decided to take shots at Rutgers in his post. The man needs to understand how many people he pissed off.
I went to Harvest Moon once in college and haven't been back since but that was just a dumb business decision by the owner. One of our many craft beer experts will have to chime in on their beer quality.
Hello I'm a Rutgers fan for four hours on Saturday. What are our chants? Go team!
Eh. Their beer isn't that good - although, my last visit there was About 4 years ago.
I hope that extra three Iowa fans was worth all the cancelled events by angry Rutgers fans and the constant phone calls and emails he has received since the post. A man that stupid doesn't deserve his own business. "Hey I have a successful nb business let me piss off half the people in the area and try to survive on the non-football students." So dumb.
Apparently I need to read this article now
I just caught up on the harvest moon stuff and it doesn't disappoint, they tried to claim they were hacked . George street bars are for nerds anyway.
Their beer sucks
Their beer's fine. Way back before the craft beer craze, they were one of the only brewpubs in NJ and they had some decent live music to add.
Their beer menu was basic back then (and I'm talking 18 years ago) and still is now but it's not bad. Their burgers are good - I just went there for lunch when I had jury duty.
If you stick with bud heavy all the time like me you'll never think any beer sucks. Old hockey trick
Clydz is where the sophisticated townie goes. Their martinis are amazing.
They make some decent bourbon drinks there too. I recommend the Sazerac or the Bourbon and Cigarettes if you don't want to drink something out of an up glass.
Good old fashioned as well
Hopefully Hobbs letter works with the students
Its annoying I have to post that by the way
I know its just two quick practice vids..but Mitchell did NOT look this good in his highlights lol. We need that on the field right now.
Pretty sure the Head brewer is from Iowa. Maybe an internal breach.
If it had to happen I'm glad it happened this way
Elizabeth (7) at Union (21) - Football
By The Star Ledger
on September 23, 2016 10:48 PM
Rutgers-bound defensive end Michael Tverdov recorded three sacks, six tackles and one fumble recovery for Union in a 21-7 victory over Elizabeth in Union.
Justin Beckett scored rushing touchdowns of 5 and 15 yards to put Union ahead 14-0 and threw a 38-yard touchdown pass to Andy Martin after Elizabeth got within seven points on a Leshane Taylor 8-yard touchdown pass to Naseem Daniels.
Jerron Whitfield led Union in rushing with 104 yards on 15 carries and Al-Tariq Jones added 75 yards on 12 carries.
Daniels caught four passes for 120 yards and one touchdown to lead the way for Elizabeth and Taylor threw for 120 yards.
We have the worst students in a major conference
Ash should just run the ball all day. Obviously our run D is awful and your QB seems to struggle passing a bit.
And Beth Mowins' voice makes me want to shove sharp objects in my ears.
@ a bit
It's crazy how we came out of that Offensive drive with a punt. Laviano's a fckin C*nt
I didn't want to be rude.
