Coffee, Bagels and the News

Mother nature decided to introduce herself to my ceiling this morning, so the news is a little later than I had hoped.

• First, big news for Rutgers fans who are also followers of the NY Giants. Shaun O'Hara is staying home. O'Hara signed a five year deal worth up to $19, including a $7.5 million signing bonus. That's great news for the Giants, and obviously, great news for one of the best (and frankly, nicest) Scarlet Knights in recent memory. To read the full story, click here.

• If you heard the horrible news that a bus carrying a baseball team in Atlanta crashed, with six people on the bus being killed, Scarlet Knight fans will be contextually relieved to know that it was not the Rutgers team. I just got a text message from Director of Baseball Operations Darren Fenster, who told me that the team is safe and sound.

Our hearts go out to the members of the Bluffton University athletic family. To read the full story, go to the Atlanta Journal Constitution website at

• Late edition find...Tom Luicci has his All-BIG EAST selections out, and Marquis Webb is his Defensive Player of the Year.
