Rutgers Relief

Good to get that one out of the system. Looked like two teams of players roused from their beds on a Sunday for a noon time television game.

— Rutgers has plenty of talent. Will surprise teams at home if they can get their act together.

— Had to be embarrassed for Derrick Caracter who kept getting shot after shot of his blocked in the first half. Ten miles from home, he had to feel humiliated.

— David Padgett is making it tough on opponents on the defensive end but he still lacks the ability to get off the floor. That will hurt against mobile big men.

— Will Scott was a magnet for the ball during his few minutes, attracting stray rebounds and bad passes. Hey, whatever works.

— Edgar Sosa should not feel bad for attempting to block a three-point shot, barely touching the shooter after the shot, not when officials ignore so many shooters getting hammered on layups.

Good vibes coming from Inside the Ville and Rivals on the football recruiting weekend. Apparently several key recruits were on hand for the U of L-UConn women’s basketball game at a sold-out Freedom Hall. How could one not be impressed?
