    Live in in Newtown Pa

    Took a couple of girls that play high level ECNL HS soccer to the Rutgers Women
    Big Ten Quarter Final. (was a bit of fresh air after this years football games).
    A 1-0 win for RU.

    After the game took the Girls to show off hardware --(Bowl Trophies) but alas
    door were locked.

    Then as I am about to leave Pat Hobbs shows up. Well the guy did an out
    standing job showing hopeful future Women's soccer knights a personal tour of the Locker room , Weight room and Bowl trophies.

    Pat couldn't of been happier that our girls have aspirations of Rutgers over Penn State.
    The guy could not have been more gracious. Thank You Pat

    Pat is an awesome AD for sports that are played in the Olympics. He should focus 100% of his attention on only those things.

    I have no ill towards Pat and think he has done many positives...however his overly gracious behavior could be a result of needing some positive press? Regardless he did it and that's cool.

    Don’t ever compare Herman to Hobbs. How she ever got the job in the first place is beyond me.

    With Schiano Hobbs does not have to worry about football and can focus on other sports.

    Exactly. Schiano completes Hobbs. Schiano can focus entirely on football and Hobbs can focus on basketball and every other sport.

    I never saw Julie once around the lax program. I’ve seen Pat around it often. I’m sure it’s like that with other sports.

    That’s great.

    Will lacrosse, women’s soccer etc. sell 14,000 season tickets @ $500 each to pick up the slack. For the football debacle.

    Mature B1G departments compete at a high level in all sports. It’s called being a winner.

    whoever the new coach may be, Hobbs needs an assistant Ad dedicated to football - someone who is football savvy ...someone who can focus on football so Pat doesn't have too, and one who can learn from Pat the fund raising aspects and how to care for other sports, so they can succeed him.

    Plenty of RU faithful in Newtown including myself.

    To the faithful, let’s schedule a get together at one of Newtown’s restaurants like the Green Parrot or Isaac Newtons.

    Oh, you can get Rutgers license plate thru the alumni association.

    I'm in! I live a block from the CVS in the borough.

    Oh, and I think Jim Dumont who played linebacker for Greg may have moved in around the corner a little while ago.

    Well Maybe it's the so called Olympic sports that keep as relevant in the BIG10 that allows time for our Football Program to right itself. Just a thought

    Football drives the bus, but other sports cannot be embarrassingly underfunded.

    Not going forward, anyway.

    Obviously its the single most important thing... I am not discounting that... but other than the HC hire of Ash, has Hobbs done anything wrong even for football? I am not aware of other issues. Some are trying to make it sound like he is particularly and uniquely incompetent to run football. I just don't see it.

    Ash was a very reasonable hire when the hire was made. If you look at it from an unbiased point of view, it seems to me the great failure was not letting him go at the end of last year, and instead waiting until this season. Obviously that was a huge mistake, but that is really all I see in the failure column.
