What this Rutgers basketball team taught us about life

I’ve been going to Rutgers basketball games since I was six years old. I’ll be 44 next month. I remember listening to games on the radio in the 80’s in my living room and trying to play along with my nerf hoop. I’ve been to and lived through plenty of memorable and important games over the years. As a kid, as a Rutgers student, as a single guy in my twenties, a married man in my thirties and now as a father in my forties.

Nothing can erase the last four years. Nothing can erase what Geo Baker helped build. Not one loss, not one turnover, not one devastating night. Baker accepted a challenge, a major challenge, when he bought into Steve Pikiell's vision and agreed to attend Rutgers, believing there was more than just a fallen program that had become a Big Ten punchline. He saw a program that could be rebuilt and reinvigorated, one that could be transformed into a formidable force, one that could be respected on a national stage.

Rutgers: How The Dream Turned Into A Nightmare for New Jersey’s Team

Most of the last three or four decades have been dismal for the Rutgers University men’s basketball program but clearly, since Steve Pikiell arrived on campus in 2016 things have trended mostly in a positive direction. Rutgers was just under .500 in his first three seasons but the Scarlet Knights won 20 games in 2020 and would have made the NCAA Tournament had it not been cancelled because of COVID -19.
