OT: Some Rutgers supporters think it is underpaid by Big Ten

Link to satirical review (OTE) of opinion piece in NJ.com (www.offtackleempire.com/2017/6/17/15823612/rutgers-thinks-the-big-ten-i…). Delusional RUTGERZ fans at their finest: claiming BTN windfall would not have happened without Rutgers and the NYC market, comparing revenue to "rival" UM, and glossing over the fact that they add nothing of value directly. Good for a laugh on a slow weekend.

Especially "buttsnake" for resolving the 404 error and enabling me to "poke" at the name.

Hey Rutgers, win some games, win some fans. The AD revenue will follow.

I know, ro-ight-0, let's see that actually happen shall we. Eastern Michigan may ambush you.

In the three years​ Rutgers has been in the Big 10, John Hopkins University has more athletic team championships than they do. Rutgers is a full participant in all men's & women's.

JHU - 1
RU - 0

Let that sink in. JH's only sport is lacrosse.

No, not NCAA, just Big 10 champs. JHU is a B1G member for one sport. Rutgers is terrible at anything athletic. It's almost shameful, no it actually is shameful! Maryland on the other hand is 3rd in the B1G in the same timeframe behind OSU (19) and UM (17) with 15 B1G Titles.

Who has time to pay attention to Rutgers, I know. Look at their win tally for any team though, men's or women's and it takes suck to a new level across the board. The only beneficiary to them being in the B1G is Purdue.

one would think that they could do better than they have been.  I see no momentum and no plan to improve.  They should be happy to have the deal they have now; when they are "full membes" they will be stealing from the rest of the conference with both hands.

They ought to consider themselves fortunate they're even in our conference. Their entire school is a fucking joke. The only reason they're here is because they're conveniently located within an hour's drive of one of the biggest cities in the world. Otherwise they offer no value whatsoever.
