Good Luck in the NFL Ray!

This news is just in:

Ray Rice, by declaring for the NFL draft as a junior, is the first player in the Greg Schiano era to leave Rutgers before his senior year, but who can really blame him? Will he ever have a better college game than the one that we had the absolute pleasure of watching up in Toronto on Saturday afternoon? Should he really risk missing his big payday because of a possible injury? Of course not. But we'll still miss him.

Good luck Ray! Thank you for everything!

Rice leaves Rutgers as the school's all-time leader in 100-yard games (25), 200-yard games (6), career rushing yards (4,926), career rushing attempts (910), career rushing touchdowns (49), single-season rushing yards (2,012 in 2007), single-season rushing touchdowns (24 in 2007), single-season rushing attempts (380 in 2007), single-game rushing yards (280 vs. Ball State, 2008 International Bowl), single-season scoring (150 points in 2007), single-season all-purpose yards (2,251 in 2007), consecutive 100-yard games (8 in 2007), longest rushing touchdown (90 vs. Ball State, 2008 International Bowl) and tied the school record for longest run from scrimmage (90 vs. Ball State, 2008 International Bowl).

Now here's to hoping that he ends up playing for one of those teams in the Meadowlands so that we can continue to watch him every week on local TV, and occasionally in person.

Thank you for the last three years Ray! No matter where you go, you will always be a Scarlet Knight.
