Here we go. It is game day and the countdown is on to one of the biggest games in Rutgers Football history.
I honestly don’t think I’ll be able to fall asleep tonight. Just spent sometime watching highlights from the 2006 game on Youtube. Enjoy. I found a couple of cool Jeremy Ito stories earlier today. The Star-Ledger did sort of a “Where is he now?” piece. The other one isn’t directly about him but you must watch this piece Tom Rinaldi did for College Gameday this past weekend.
It was one of the best columns he wrote in his tenure with Sports Illustrated which lasted over 20 years. He himself acknowledged it as one of his most memorable columns. The story was about a 54 year old man named Butch Varno from Middlebury, Vermont. Butch Varno is bound to his wheelchair because of Cerebral Palsy but for over 50 years freshman from the small college have been literally picking him up to take him to football and basketball games.
