    Why are you guys still posting? Hondo ended the argument three hours ago.

    I'd give the edge to Schiano over Grobe, because as someone mentioned, Wake has gradually been getting better. The last few years they've always been a tough team to play even if they didn't win. If Rutgers went 7-4 or something like that then I'd go with Grobe in a heartbeat. But what Schiano did was simply amazing. Shame for Jersey he'll be in Miami next year.

    Moddys, can we get this thread locked? The debate is over. Hondo said so.

    I have to say Grobe, although Schiano can put up a very good argument. Winning 10 games for the first time in the school's history while losing your leading passer and rusher from last season to injury is hard to beat, especially when you have the third smallest undergrad enrollment in Division 1-A

    and Headbutt, I repeat, Schiano is NOT going to Miami or anywhere else.

    And Rutgers is Rutgers. What, exactly, has New Jersey EVER won?

    I actually am starting to think you're right. But I wonder Jersey Boy, why is that?

    I'm starting to believe he's staying put also, and I find it perplexing. Loyalty, shmoyalty. He needs to cash in on one of the most incredible seasons in recent memory.

    A. Miami is not his dream job... Penn Sate is.
    B. He's the fucking king of New Jersey right now and Miami is a no-win situation
    C. The 7-year extension he signed last year will be reworked and upgraded again
    D. The State U is building him a HUGE home -- to his architect's specs -- on campus, in a supposedly preserved area that they rezoned just for him
    E. They will soon announce plans to follow through on Schiano's desired expansion of Rutgers Stadium to 60,000 (and he's also got an architect's rendering of how it could go to 80,000 if necessary)
    F. His wife likes NJ a lot more than she likes Fla.
    G. He's a fucking Jersey guy through and through

    It's Grobe and it's not close. He was a unanimous pick in the Atlantic Coast Conference, proof that some sanity is left in the world. If any of that bunch had voted anyone else, they should have been drug tested.

    Nice honorable mentions to Petersen and Schiano, though.

    Spnited, fair enough. I had no idea.

    And Sammy, it is close. Real close, and even I give a slight edge to Schiano right now.
