RU shines in the current print issue of SI

Of course there was a time in the very recent past when a fan of the Scarlet Knights would have to search closely through the fine print in Sports Illustrated's annual College Football Preview issue to find any mention of our favorite team. Would we come in last in the Big East? Or would Temple be predicted to finish below us?
This year's issue, dated August 20, 2007 and on the newstands now, has a wealth of scarlet pages, from a full-page John Hancock advertising feature about Greg Schiano on page 44, to a profile of Ray Rice (with photo vs Syracuse) on pages 65 & 66, to a full-page article on SI's #12 preseason pick (with emphasis on Eric Foster) on page 102. You could miss the smaller mentions of Rutgers on the Big East page on page 119, or in this list of Bowl Predictions on page 129:

Our Knights versus the Wolverines in the ROSE Bowl?? I don't want to get too confident, but I'm trying to save my money for a long New Year's Day trip.
