It's like Groundhog Day for the Rutgers basketball team
Posted 2/9/2013 3:06:00 PM

     You have to wonder why any Rutgers basketball fan would have any ounce of optimism about the program.  Certainly it wouldn't be based on recent history.  The Scarlet Knights lost their sixth straight game of the season Saturday afternoon to 20th-ranked Georgetown 69-63 in a Big East game heard on the new talk radio, 1450 WCTC and WCTCAM.com.  That means RU is 3-8 in league with seven games left.  The Knights would have to run the table to avoid a 22nd straight season of a non-winning record in a conference.  That would be 18 out of 18 years in the Big East and the previous four in the Atlantic-10.  The last time Rutgers had a winning mark in a league was in the 1990-91 season when it won the Atlantic-10 title en route to its last appearance in the NCAA Tournament.  How long ago was that?  The FIRST George Bush was president.  So, for any Scarlet Knight fans out there with a shred of optimism, good luck on that move to the Big Ten in 2014!
