    Tell me about the Scarlet Lot

    Agreed. The “Lots open 5 hours before kickoff” rule is only based on when the cones are put up. Usually that is at 6AM. Police and parking staff are as professional and courteous as you are to them. Build relationships with them, let them know you are a mature adult who can be trusted to...

    Tell me about the Scarlet Lot

    Heh, heh, heh! There is lots of space you can choose from in Scarlet at 3AM. But the Island is one place you won't be getting. That I promise.

    OT: LadyRU09’s Mother has Passed

    To all: This is somewhat off-topic. However, I would like to make you aware that LadyRU09’s MOTHER, Barbara Lapinski Tangel, DC'72, GS'74, and current Director, Didactic Program in Dietetics, has died. Her daughter Kristin, COOK'09, is LadyRU09 here on this board. To say the least, this is...

    Glen Mason on HPSS

    What makes it "louder" is the stadium is built into a natural bowl of bedrock. All of the noise is contained inside the bedrock and reverberates around the bowl with no way to escape. You can ask fans and players going back into the 1940s and they will tell you Rutgers Stadium has always been...

    Cmon students -- ya gotta do better than this

    The Fan Advisory Board has been in existence for several years now. Indeed as RU4Real noted, the implementation is far different from the concept. Much of the discussion this year was focused on specific ideas that are from within Athletics and whether or not the fans on the board approve. At...

    OT: PICK YOUR FAVORITE YANKEE BROADCASTING "DREAM TEAM"

    Always liked Scooter, funny, with a great range of history and stories. The best group - at least for me - was the 1986 crew of Phil Rizzuto, Bill White, Jim Kaat, Billy Martin, Mel Allen, Mickey Mantle, John Gordon, Spencer Ross and Bobby Murcer.

    Geoff Brown and Janine Purcaro Released from Duties in Athletic Department

    :smiley: Oh "we" know what we want to be. The way I put it is: "Sometimes we get this inferiority complex being sandwiched between NYC & Philly. We need to overcome that; we're Rutgers University. We're the best."

    Geoff Brown and Janine Purcaro Released from Duties in Athletic Department

    Good question. And the short answer is a resounding "no". Part of the problem is that the "atmosphere" of being unified as a University is recent as within the last decade at Rutgers. Just about every other university in each of the Power 5 Conferences have been unified for generations of...

    Geoff Brown and Janine Purcaro Released from Duties in Athletic Department

    The biggest problem with anything relating to "marketing" at the University has been the wall that has been consistently put up by Trademark & Licensing Office at the University for anything and everything that is presented as an idea. The example @MrsScrew gives of the driver cover is an...

    Stadium Policies for Illinois Game

    Several of the Chartered Orgs. such as the RAA, Cook, Livingston, UC, and Mason Gross Alumni groups will always look for individuals to become active. However, you can also connect with the RUAA through the following link: http://www.alumni.rutgers.edu/s/896/index.aspx?sid=896&gid=1&pgid=641...

    Whose decision was it to enforce the ban on outside food and drink?

    Stadium Policies for Illinois Game

    Actually, the RUAA did not take away the opportunities. Those events wound up being canceled due to lack of volunteers. Handing out the chachkies isn't what is being discussed. The events in question are: the alumni parade down College Ave. which was moved to Alumni Weekend, the ghost tour...

    Whose decision was it to enforce the ban on outside food and drink?

    I'll scold whoever I want, whenever, however I wish. If you can't stand getting called out like that, you are the one with the problem, not me. But I'll play hard ball with you to set your tail exactly where it needs to be. 1) Your comments prove you are another of the Joisey Complainers...

    Stadium Policies for Illinois Game

    ScarletR97 is on point. Homecoming is Alumni Relations driven. It has been for decades. That said, the involvement between and among Athletics, Alumni Relations, the volunteer Charter Orgs. and the Foundation has improved drastically over the last 20 years, whether it was announcing events being...
