The starting gun has been shot. I can't unwear the gown, unwalk the aisle or unshake the dean's hand. My identity has been profoundly changed by a piece of paper, a diploma that hereby certifies that I graduated from Rutgers University.

NEW YORK -- Who would have pegged St. John's-Rutgers to provide the first madness-inducing moment of conference tourney season? The Internet lit up over the ending to Wednesday's wild finish at the Big East Tournament -- unfortunately, for all the wrong reasons.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- We'll lead off my Monday Hoop Thoughts with my take on the quartet of teams that were assembled in Atlantic City last weekend for the Legends Classic. I did color commentary on those games for HDNet, so I had a great seat for the games as well as the shootarounds. I also got to spend some quality time with the coaching staffs.
Ancient footprints discovered in northern Kenya are believed to be the oldest sign that early humans had feet like ours.
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- Traveling northbound on Interstate 95 past mile marker 20, a driver can turn his head to the right and see high rises towering over sun-soaked beaches. If he turns his head to the left, he'll see a billboard advertising the football program at New Jersey's flagship state university. It's no accident. Hollywood, a suburb sandwiched between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, sits near the southern tip of the State of Rutgers.
It started at a bus stop in early October. Rutgers freshman Chelsey Lee was belting out a tune and one by one her freshmen teammates followed. A fellow passenger, seemingly uninterested in hearing Rutgers' latest hot shots sing, leaned out the window and yelled, "SHUT UP." Unfortunately for him, the quintet just grew louder, and since that day the youngest Rutgers stars have done nothing but sing on the bus, whether on their way to practice or class, much to the entertainment (and sometimes chagrin) of the other passengers.
Using naturally occurring antibacterial compounds found in soil, Rutgers University researchers say they may have discovered a new antibiotic drug
When Joanne Rosario's youngest child, Michael, was 12 years old, she would wake up at 7 a.m. most Saturdays, open the door to his room, only to see an empty bed and begin to worry where her son had gone. "Drug dealers were in the hallways, homeless people were lined against the wall," Joanne says. "I'd worry, but when I looked down from our 12th floor apartment, there he was dribbling a ball on the Lincoln Park court."
SPRINGFIELD, Pa. -- On the first day of hunting season in December 2002, Tom Savage, all of 12, lifted his 7mm-08 Remington rifle, aimed it at an 8-Point Buck, and pulled the trigger. "He won our biggest buck contest," Savage's father, Tom, says of his son's hunting debut. "The head still hangs over the bar in our log cabin."

Around 80 percent of Fortune 500 companies, according to a recent estimate by Psychology Today, swear by personality tests as a part of their screening process for prospective employees. Just as much as colleges rely on the SAT and ACT for admissions, some companies base a significant amount of their hiring on results of tests like the MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator), which illuminates an individual's psychological preferences.
This Labor Day finds workers in worse shape than they've been in years, according to a scorecard released Monday by Rutgers University
GREENSBORO -- Get her now. That's the advice for Rutgers coach Vivian Stringer because Maya Moore will be a freshman only once. Everything in this tournament is new for Moore, though you would not know it based on her comportment (calm) and performance (otherworldly). Stringer's team kept Moore in check for most of its 72-69 win Feb. 5, the only loss UConn has suffered in 36 games. Moore, a 6-foot forward, had two fouls before she scored her first point and was on the bench for much of the first half. She finished with 15 second-half points, including consecutive three-pointers in the final minutes.
With several upsets in the closing week of the regular season, the bottom half of our rankings have become a bit jumbled. There's no question who's top dog, though. After Monday's 66-46 win against Rutgers, the Huskies are back at No. 1.
Connecticut held off LSU 74-69 on Monday, to stay at No. 2 and set up a showdown next week with No. 1 Rutgers, which beat the Huskies earlier this season. Here's a look at the latest power rankings.
For Tennessee, having five signees on the McDonald's All-American roster is business as usual. For Rutgers, having five future Scarlet Knights among the group is significent progress.
Rutgers' luck has turned. After rebounding from that controversial loss at Tennessee with a 71-50 win over South Florida, the Scarlet Knights hold the No. 1 spot in this week's power rankings.
The Rutgers women picked a good time to play like the team that made it to the NCAA finals last season.
They've won 10 straight games and are fifth in the nation with a 15-2 record. They play basketball with a fluid grace and are coached by someone considered a "legend." And yet I'll wager you have no idea what I'm writing about.
Last year's Rutgers-Louisville Thursday night game was one of the most memorable I've ever covered --- not just because of Jeremy Ito's dramatic, last-second field goal re-do or the subsequent, mammoth storming-of-the-field, but because of the perilous struggles SI.com senior editor B.J. Schecter and I endured just to get to and from the game.
Ray Rice thanked me. OK, he actually thanked all the writers who've covered him at Rutgers for the past three years.
SI.com's Luke Winn analyzes the matchup.
Sure, this wasn't quite the year that Rutgers, a consensus preseason Top 20 team, was planning on: Five losses and the consolation prize of the second-year International Bowl in Toronto Jan. 5 against a MAC team, a matchup that might not exactly cause seven-hour delays at Canadian customs.
Sports Illustrated will announce its choice for Sportsman of the Year on Dec. 3. Here's one of the nominations for that honor by an SI writer. For more essays, click here.
The offseason wasn't kind to women's basketball. From Don Imus to Pokey Chatman to the Geno Auriemma-Pat Summit feud, the game was marred by negative headlines.
The unpredictable 2006 college season continued as another undefeated team went down to defeat last week. And finally, several well known NFL prospects are starting to hit their stride and solidify themselves as early selections.
PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- They came from near (New York Giants stars Michael Strahan, New York Mets stud David Wright) and far (Fiesta Bowl CEO John Junker, Orange Bowl CEO Eric Poms), all sharing a common curiosity. "It's a chance to see the No. 2 team in the country live!" a giddy press-box spectator exclaimed into his cell-phone shortly before kickoff.
Camp was five days old, temperatures were high in the 90s and the air had that New Jersey, sits-on-you kind of thickness. Greg Schiano's players were of course still running gassers, as they did every previous day.
After a 2-4 start, C. Vivian Stringer's Rutgers University team hardly looked like a squad capable of reaching the NCAA women's basketball tournament.
MSNBC and CBS Radio are suspending Don Imus for two weeks after the radio host described the Rutgers University women's basketball team as "nappy-headed hos," the networks said Monday.
All right Don Imus, I hate to break it to you. Saying you're "embarrassed" isn't going to cut it.
Before the Tennessee Lady Vols took the court for Tuesday's NCAA title game against Rutgers, they heard a poem from assistant coach and frustrated English major Dean Lockwood about the importance of embracing the warrior mentality. When Lockwood had finished his recital, he picked up a baseball bat and smashed to pieces a videotape of Rutgers' semifinal game, in which the Scarlet Knights embarrassed SEC runner-up LSU 59-35.
CLEVELAND -- The team that made so much noise in the NCAA tournament was silenced Tuesday. Fourth-seeded Rutgers, which knocked off top-seeded Duke and third-seeded Arizona and LSU, just didn't have another upset in it.

This game was ugly and low-scoring, but beyond that, it hardly went according to script. For starters, the Scarlet Knights, not known for their three-point shooting (unjustifiably, it turns out) started the game hitting three-pointers like they were channeling the guards of Vanderbilt or Middle Tennessee State. Before the first half was over, three players had connected on eight of 10 three-pointers, with junior guard Matee Ajavon leading the way with a perfect 4-for-4.
