- You get better, or you get worse... you never stay the same.
- Life ain't a dress rehersal.
- Don't accept in winning what you wouldn't in losing.
- You must deserve to win.
- Its not the game... it's the accomplishment. It's knowing you've been a part of something like this.

Sterling On Rice Watch List!
Monmouth University's Neal Sterling is waiting for the announcement of the Jerry Rice Award, given annually to the nation's top freshman player in the FCS. Sterling led all freshman receievers in the FCS with 57 receptions and was second in yardage (677). Neal's 57 catches are third most all-time at MU.
Art Forst, who set a recod at Rutgers for most games started (40) in school history (a history that dates back to 1889), was named First Team All-Big East as an offensive lineman. He joins only Anthony Davis (2009), Jeremy Zuttah (2006 and 2007), John Glass (2005), Shaun O’Hara (1999) and Robert Barr (1995) as the only Rutgers linemen to earn that distinction in 21 years of league play.
Forst who endured a stint on the Rutgers bench, got back in and started his last seven games, was the recipient of the Scarlet Knights' Swarm and Finish Award. The award is given to the player who exemplifies the type of consistent effort and intensity in best representing the Rutgers’ mantra to swarm and finish. Perhaps no one epitomizes what it is to be a Rutgers player more than Art Forst. A starter for the majority of his career, Forst spent the first part of the season on the sideline, but never lost his focus or his will to win and help his teammates any way he can.
