Rutgers was able to scale the mountaintop, but the program spent precious little time near its summit. I count mere weeks at the forefront of college football: that the Scarlet Knights got there at all is a testament to the jaw-dropping rebuilding job done by Greg Schiano, but it made last year’s slide – and an unimpressive nine-win 2009, if there is such a thing – painful for a fan base dreaming of planting their flag alongside the nation’s elite. That Rutgers has been lapped by several Big East foes – Connecticut went to the B.C.S. before the Scarlet Knights – stings worse, and even raises a once-unthinkable question: Is Greg Schiano just a builder, or can he get Rutgers to the next level?
