What a great win just now out in Seattle for the Scarlet Knights over Washington State. The team showed a lot of heart coming back over and over again tonight (this morning).

I have a season seat at Rutgers Stadium this year, but I'll be out of the country and away from television and computers during the first two home games against Howard and Penn State. I don't feel a need to do a KeepCalmAndChop poster for Howard, but I can't let the first Penn State game of Rutgers' Big Ten era pass without this:

"The Birthplace of College Football" Removed?

According to this article on this afternoon, the letters spelling out "The Birthplace of College Football" have been removed from the field-level wall on the south end of Rutgers Stadium.
According to the statement in the article from Jason Baum, Rutgers' senior associate athletic director for communications, a new spot for the letters hasn't been decided yet, but I have a suggestion. Put them back on top of the scoreboard (photo below from the December 5, 2009 West Virginia game) where they were before the sponsorship deal that removed them and replaced them with the commercial name we have never used (and will never use) when referring to Rutgers Stadium or R House or The Birthplace of College Football.

And put the letters back on the south wall too.
