The problem is that nobody in NJ gives a damn about Rutgers.

Not true. Ever since Rutgers started winning football games, college football has become much more popular in NJ, especially among those who live in South Jersey and in and around New Brunswick, which is where Rutgers main campus is. Furthermore, since there is only one other big to mid-size university in NJ that has an existing football team, let alone a respectable one, Rutgers has very little competition regarding local college football. While professional football is still king in Jersey, there is plenty of support for the Scarlet Knights when they win.

And how many games will they be winning in the Big 10? My guess is not many, in the long run. If they aspire to being the next Northwestern, have fun, because I think that's how they'll end up.

I'm not saying that it would be a good idea for Rutgers to move to the Big 10. I'm just saying that your characterization of how much folks from NJ care about RU or its football team is off base.
