Before Schiano got here the Rutgers football was a complete dumpster fire. No one wanted any part of it, in state recruits never looked at going there and it was a joke to everyone. During his tenure at Rutgers, Schiano helped oversee a complete redesign of the school football facilities and make them some of the best in Big East and on the East Coast.
Sure Schiano left the school at the worst time possible time, six days before National Signing Day, but he has not left the school in a bad position. Rutgers is coming off a bowl win and a nine win season. The team has a ton of talent coming back and should be one of the best in the Big East and might find themselves in BCS Bowl at the end of it. If that happens much of the credit should go to Schiano after all it will be his players that took them there.
On Thursday, I got home to a nice surprise the 2012 Baseball American Prospects Handbook had arrived. For prospects geeks like myself, this is the bible. My book shelf in my office has them dating back to 2002 and its sometimes fun to take a look through them.
