    My son is a engineer at Lockheed Martin. They had a conference call today with about 100 participants. The subject of Rutgers and the saliva test came up. All of a sudden my Son sees this come across the chat:

    My father sent me to old Rutgers,...

    My son responds with :

    And resolv'd that I should be a man;

    Of course someone else posts

    And so I settled down...

    Of course it went on and on and not one of them was a repeat poster. Other participants were asking what the heck is going on. The meeting went on and towards the end someone posted

    RU Rah Rah and it began again.

    A lot Rutgers Alum out there and I guess a lot of SOE Grads.

    Indeed; but they may all not be SOE grads as LM and other defense contractors might also hire Rutgers folks with degrees in hard/natural sciences such as comp sci, math, physics, et.al.

    There of course are a lot of RU grads out there and lets pray we have sports this fall and going forward as the momentum of RU nation was really starting to heat up again especially after the bball season and the hiring of Schiano
