Okay, SEC people, y'all can take a seat with this. Georgia Tech a.k.a. the Golden Tornado plays in the best conference for basketball, the ACC. Cuse and Sueconn are the classes of the Least.

Honestly, Georgia is just ATL Metro (the real 5 county area) and the Savannah metro. New Jersey does have some great cities though and I really liked Jersey City when I was there.

I think yes....lol. Im sure some of these southern power house high school teams could at least compete with Rutgers. I mean you are talking about schools where even some of the bench players get D1 full rides to elite football schools. Rutgers gets the second tier prospects.

*yawns* Football >> Basketball

And that comes from a scrawny kid who played nothing but basketball growing up, it was always the sport I was best at, but football was always my favorite sport.

How can Georgia be just ATL Metro and the Savannah metro???

When Augusta has the second largest share of the state(economically)....

Dude, you sound really, really bad.

Rutgers--or most any D1 school for that matter--would beat any of those top-ranked high school teams by hundreds of points. If they played 4 quarters of 15 minute football, that high school team would score zero points, while Rutgers would score on probably close to every single play.

Get a clue.

Well, I said that in reference to things to do for me. I admit that my only experience with Augusta was passing through but I have to actually do some things to appreciate it. I do think that it's a good thing that Augusta's starting to come around. The information that you've provided on the city is good.

Are you kidding me?? Rutgers is a lower tier college football prorgam, not a lower tier NFL team. Im not saying a high school power house could beat Rutgers by any strecth, but I am saying that they could at least compete with them on some level. On the offensive side of the ball proabably not, but Im sure there are some teams in Texas, Florida or Georgia somewhere with some LB's, DE's, CB's and SS's that are just as big and just as fast if not more so than the ones on Rutgers. Only bench warmers from good football teams and the best players from sorry to middle of the road football teams go to Rutgers. RU is not a destintation for a blue chip prospect. Even the few blue chips that come from Jersey, NY and PA dont go there, they go down south or out west

I would probably agree with you if we were talking about high school seniors vs college freshman but Rutgers would have 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and maybe 5th years guys on that team. You have to take into to account their training (better workout facilities), experience, etc that RU players would have over their high school counterparts.

Definitely NOT... junior/senior college players are a LOT bigger and muscular than h.s. seniors and juniors. There is tremendous "bulking up" and skill advancement from h.s. to college level. They would get completely dominated especially at the line of scrimmage and possibly seriously injured as well. Similarly from college to pro. Now a top tier BASKETBALL h.s. team might be able to compete with a college basketball team, not football though. Baseball could too if you had an elite pitcher throwing a good game, football doesn't work like that though.

I feel what you are saying but Im not saying that the high school team would beat them, all I am saying is that the game would be a lot closer than a 76-0 blowout. And you would be suprised how well some of these high schools train and condition their players. Rutgers cant even beat Norfolk State by 100 points. And Norfolk St is like most HBCU's, they get the bottom of the barrell players and juco transfers from across the country. So what makes people think that Rutgers can blow out a school like Lowndes High School in Valdosta or Permian High in Texas where almost the entire starting 11 on each side of the ball are going to elite programs??
