The play came late in the game, when Rutgers expanded its lead over Navy to a comfortable level after a tight three quarters.
Navy's Reggie Campbell took the kickoff and ran full speed ahead up the middle with all the force his 168-pound body could generate. Campbell, almost always the smallest and fastest man on the field, hit a wall of XXXL-sized scarlet jerseys and was slammed to the ground at the bottom of the pile. He got up slowly, limping off. This gutsy kid, a slotback who already spent three quarters being chased and tackled by gangs of defensive linemen and linebackers, all weighing at least 100 pounds more than him, was then given a dose of Rutgers' student section class.
''You got f---ed up. You got f---ed up. You got f--ed-up," they chanted.

Those Napp... er guess i can’t say that...
This is a sick syndrome happening at almost all sporting events at almost every age level. People think just because they are at a game they can cuss, swear, be vulgar all they want and it’s OK becasue they are supporting their team or child. It drives me crazy without taking my kids anywhere, and I dread taking my kids to any sporting event. It is degeneracy run amok.
If there is one thing I've learned about college sporting events it is this: never judge the fans by the student body. Students by definition are idiots. Being college students specifically, they're going to do something incredibly stupid. I don't know where you live, but where I live, typically the most obnoxious people at games typically are the students.
"My thoughts exactly."
College football fans from New Jersey are just about beyond words.....
Yep. And it happens at all levels or football. Coaches and kids I can flag and toss if needed. With fans it’s a bit more difficult. But they can be tossed too, or their team forfeits. It works.
Navy and Rutgers have a bit of a history. I went to the Navy - Rutgers game in Annapolis three years ago. Rutgers stayed on the field too long for their warm-ups, holding up the march-on and Navy from entering the field. Navy proceeded to thump them by four or five TDs (Kyle Eccles had a HUGE day). Maybe this is tied to that. But what else is to be expected from a crowd of drunken college students?
Its not just Rutgers either. I ran into the same problem when I brought my son to a NJ Devil's game.
The offenders always fit the same profile:
Twentysomethings who are drunk off their arses.
More anecdotal evidence that the coarsening of our culture is all too real.
Those students, like so many in New Jersey, contine to disgrace themselves. We might ask, where do these foul-mouthed hoots come from? What elements in the greater society are responsible for them? And, sadly, why do the rest of us choose to ignore them, rather than to correct them?
For my money, nothing's worse than Jets fans.
Eagles fans in the 700-level at old Veterans Stadium were legendary. It was indistinguishable from a trip to the Philadelphia Zoo.
Some view New Jerzey as the stinking cesspool for New York and I guess these fans are the Muckdivers in that cesspool.
Still, the soccer/futbol fans in Europe put fans here in America to shame.
Will this latest Rutgers/bad language incident result in Gov. Jon Corzine breaking another leg?
(Stay off the freeways!)
About 2 months ago, they published an article that said he was riding in the backseat (not the front seat) with a 25 year old blond "assistant" when they got into the accident.
He was NOT riding in the front seat as alleged. Even the doctors said he would have gone through the windshield at that speed without a seat belt.
They changed the story to cover up the incident with his squeeze.
She has since been "moved to another department."
I read that in the Post, too! I believe the Latin term for what happened the moment after the crash is “governus interuptus” :)
I guess she was a smooth haired ho?
I heard even the Bama President has been urging their fans to quit chanting “We Just Beat the Hell Out of You” at their games.
You mean like the “little bird, with golden bill” song?
My personal favorite, but was not good to sing around tourists.
Enjoy it while you can, Rutgers. When I was at Navy, Rutgers was the team we scheduled at homecoming so we could smash the sh*t out of them in front of the alumni-—that is, if we couldn’t get William and Mary to commit. Reggie Campbell could eat your entire student body for lunch and have room in his gut for even more.
Bring Rutgers and their fans to the LA Coliseum for a scrimage against the Trojans - we will silence them ten minutes into the first quarter...
Yeah, Rutgers doesn’t have all the available cash on hand from their alumni to buy their players things like the Condoms... ahem I mean Trojans.
Unless youre a Trojan, you probably hope some NFL team dangles a monstrous enough carrot (Brinks truck full of cash, team ownership, full control whatever) that finally lures away the King of L.A. because if Pete Carroll stays at Southern California for much longer, the annual race to the BCS championship game is going to become a yearly chase to see who gets to play SC.
