The 2009 Scarlet & White Game tickets are on sale -- with a special bonus this year

In addition to the free t-shirt with your $5 ticket (and your poster, and your hour on the field after the game getting that poster signed by the players), on April 18th of this year you will also get to see a real Rutgers game as the lacrosse team plays the Penn State Nittany Lions before the Scarlet play the White.

Here's the scene from last year via YouTube:

Here's your link for tickets.

See you there! A fan of the Scarlet Knights can never have too many red t-shirts.

The 2009 Rutgers Football Schedule is (almost) Set

With some eerie echoes of last year, there's still one TBA on the calendar, and there's still a date with Howard on the calendar, so I'm taking all of the non-conference schedule with a grain or two of salt until it's absolutely final, but here's the list of games that appeared on earlier today:
Sat., Sept. 5th (or 6th or 7th) - Cincinnati
Sat., Sept. 12th - Howard
Sat., Sept. 19th - Florida International
Sat., Sept. 26th at Maryland
Sat., Oct. 10th - TBA
Fri., Oct. 16th (8pm) - Pittsburgh
Fri., Oct. 23rd at Army
Sat., Oct. 31st at Connecticut
Thurs., Nov. 12th (7:30pm) - USF
Sat., Nov. 21st at Syracuse
Sat., Nov. 28th at Louisville
Sat., Dec. 5th West Virginia
That last game of the season against the Mountaineers is going to be broadcast on "ABC/ESPN/ESPN2". It would be great if that game has meaning. But even if it doesn't, it always feels like the start of something new when the fall schedule is first announced.
