Now Rutgers is a good school, don't get me wrong, but your statement is just not correct.

You guys still have Princeton though
I'm surprised that UGA and GT are ranked higher than Rutgers by US News. I believe they are on the same tier though.

I agree with Bergen County Johnny though, that Rutgers tends to be more known in academic circles nationwide and even worldwide.

Back to the NJ vs Georgia discussion!

Man there are some high school teams in the south that would give Rutgers a run for their money, seriously. I think some teams like Lowndes County High in south GA, Red Bank High in Tenn., Parkview High in suburban Atlanta, NW Dade High in Miami, and Midland High in Texas would give Rutgers all they could handle. Someone tell those Jersey boys to stick to basketball, these boys in the south are too fast and hit way too hard for them....lol.

I find it hilarious that these northerners always try to talk about how non-diverse and "black and white" the south is. But they never say anything about those lily-white new england states.

My ex girlfriend is from Valdosta so I know all about Lowndes. It's serious business when it comes to football over there.

Ah my friend you guys missed out on the opportunity to join the Big ten, now stuck in a division that will continue to get weaker, but the horns can pad their record

Dude if it is not the SEC or the Big 12 then its pretty much amatuer night. Talk to players who have transferred from schools in the Big East and Big 10 to schools in either the SEC or the Big 12, they will tell you there is no comparision.

Last time I checked NJ is not in New England - Mid Atlantic would be more appropriate

I'm actually pretty ticked about that. I hate this conference with a passion. It was a shotgun wedding to begin with and i'm tired of having no marquee matchups besides OU while the SEC has a big game every week it seems.

The big 12 is sinking fast
