Are you ready for some football?

OK, so the Rutgers regular season doesn't start for more than a month, but the first Knights-related football activities will take place this morning at Big East media day in Newport, R.I. 

Mike Teel, Tiquan Underwood, Courtney Greene and Kevin Malast are here along with coach Greg Schiano, and they'll talk to reporters tomorrow along with representatives from the seven other teams in the Big East. Last night the conference kicked off the festivities with a clam bake in Fort Adams State Park, on property that was once owned by President Dwight Eisenhower. Ike, apparently, had some pretty nice summer dibs: a big but not mansion-sized house on a hill overlooking the Rhode Island Sound. 

Earlier in the day, the conference held a golf scramble, and Greg Schiano was in the winning group, earning him a free set of irons. 

I went on a tour of the White House when I was in sixth grade, but other than that I'm fairly certain it was the first time I'd ever been to a house that a President ever called home. 

Commissioner Mike Tranghese, who I literally bumped into at the clam bake (actually, he kind of bumped into me by inadvertently elbowing me) will kick off the morning with some opening remarks at the Hotel Viking, and it'll be an interview-a-palooza after that. I'll check in with some news and notes on the Knights and the rest of the league.
