“Perfect Together” — Perfectly Mediocre

Rutgers president Slick McCormick and his sweaty doppelganger Mulcahy III like to preach the doctrine that bigtime sports and bigtime academics are “perfect together” — and now there is proof that indeed they are in sync, if mediocrity is your mantra. That’s because Rutgers now ranks a dismal 59 in the US News & World Report tally of national universities — below scholastic powerhouses such as Pepperdine and the University of Miami — and it also ranks 58 in the New York Times pre-season hierarchy of big-time college football teams. That’s worse than such sports dynasties as the University of Nevada and Ball State. Eight years into the Schiano Era — with the Rutgers football coach solidly ensconced as the state of New Jersey’s highest paid employee — Scarlet Knights fans can take pride in a team that is so thoroughly unimportant most experts tab it to finish 4th or 5th in the weak-sister Big East.

Way to go Slick, say it loud, say it proud, mediocrity is the Rutgers mantra and at least we are good at it!
