Rutgers - It's In New Jersey, OK?

Rutgers. It's not a state, nor a town. It's the state university of New Jersey, with a 50,000 strong student body. And Rutgers has been getting its share of publicity lately. The football team has been popping up on national TV lately, and went 11-2 last season. The said team also posted the best NCAA Academic Performance Rate (APR) or any state university. Many others were educated on the existence of Rutgers with the whole Don Imus affair last month.

But do people really know Rutgers? Do they even know where it is? In a state that was once called "a keg tapped at both ends" by Benjamin Franklin, state lawmakers are stepping to make sure that they will.

A New Jersey Assembly committee Thursday approved a resolution requesting Rutgers redesign the "R" logo to include the letters "NJ," a move designed to give the state credit for recent success at the school.

"There are folks saying, 'Rutgers, where exactly is that located?"' said Assemblyman Patrick Diegnan, D-Middlesex
I get it. New Jersey wants some love. They're the most densely populated state, but they don't even have their own television stations. The house two football teams, but neither have New Jersey in their name. But is adding NJ to the logo really going to help things? Imagine you're watching a Big East football game next season featuring Rutgers. Would you even notice it? And if you even did, so what?

Amazingly, only one legislator voted against the resolution, calling it "micromanagement gone nuts."

"Rutgers can decide what it's logo is," he said. "Rutgers is Rutgers. It has its own proud name and doesn't need to have New Jersey appended to it."

If New Jersey really wants to gain some more attention, maybe it should hitch itself to its most famous residents - the Sopranos. Star James Gandolfini is an alum, and AJ Soprano has been taking a liking to the Rutgers frat scene in recent episodes. Just replace the Scarlet R with the Cleaver logo. There you go.

In reality, this is another example of lawmakers misusing their time. I'm sure there would be more pressing issues out there than this one for the fine state of New Jersey. You want recognition? Success brings it, not the letters NJ in a logo.

for a number of years rutgers did have a logo that basically said "NJ RUTGERS" on their helmet.

But it was so friggin ugly and they were so bad that they, rightfully so, went back to the "R"

The "R" looks great...anyone who sez otherwise is a bandwagon jumper.

plus it's a great tune by Eric B & Rakim

As a NJ born and raised Rutgers alum I think this is the biggest waste of lawmakers time. If RU wants to change their logo to a picture of some dead fish next to a smokestack, then they sure as hell are allowed to! Rutgers has already begun using the name "Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey" everywhere, so I think that's more than enough.

I'm proud to say that Rutgers is the only Official State University in America that isn't called 'state-name State' (ie - Penn State, Michigan State, etc)

I think a logo that encompassing something along the lines of "The Rutgers Scarlet Knights of New Jersey located in Piscataway, and 33 miles from New York City and 60 miles from Philadelphia!" would look stunning written in size 6 font on a helmet.

Why not put "Exit 9" on the logo.

Putting an "NJ" on the helmet is going to hurt recruiting. Players want to play at Rutgers until they realize it's in NJ!

They should be like the Giants and Jets and put "NY". They'll agree to that if Governor Corzine donates a building dedicated to crash tests.
