Big Ten-style football is played in NJ, Rutgers should fit in, says former …

David Diehl knows Big Ten college football and he knows New Jersey high propagandize football, and a two-time Super Bowl champion sees a compare in character between a two.

A Second-Team All-Big Ten preference as a comparison descent lineman during a University of Illinois in 2002, Diehl spent his whole 11-year NFL career with a Giants.

The 6-foot-6, 315-pound former Pro Bowler late in Jan and was hired as a diversion researcher for FOX’s coverage in May, only a week after he spoke to Gannett New Jersey during a one-day football stay for descent linemen hold in a memory of Rutgers football actor Scott Patkochis.

“Being here for 11 years, examination New Jersey football, it’s tough. It’s run a football. It’s personification earthy defense,” pronounced Diehl, who lived in Totowa. “That’s what a Big Ten is all about.”

Rutgers, that stays married to a pro-style offense even as dozens of college football teams have switched to no-huddle, widespread systems, is one week divided from a central entrance into a Big Ten.

The Scarlet Knights, who have roughly 50 players on their register from New Jersey, won’t face Illinois until Oct. 15, 2016 in a cross-divisional matchup in Piscataway, though a prolonged wait hasn’t gradual Diehl’s fad for a partnership of his college and veteran markets.

Diehl was teammates for 7 seasons with Rutgers alum Shaun O’Hara, who works as a NFL Network analyst, and a dual sojourn in contact.

“The Rutgers group is a really good group right here in a New York/New Jersey area and in a good market,” Diehl said. “Having Penn State as distant easterly as a Big Ten reached, and now to have Rutgers and Maryland, it’s only going to enhance a series of people examination Big Ten football and enhance a game.”

For all his knowledge manning a trenches opposite a Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins in one of a NFL’s many earthy and uniformly matched divisions, Diehl pronounced zero compares to a storied rivalries in a Big Ten.

Illinois plays for a prize opposite Ohio State, Northwestern and Purdue.

“To play Ohio State, Michigan,” Diehl said, “there are a lot of rivalries that are going to go on that Rutgers and Maryland are going to burst right into.”
