After the Giants pulled off a 14-point second-half comeback to beat the Bucs 41-34, New York coach Tom Coughlin angrily confronted new Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano because Bucs defenders hit Giants quarterback Eli Manning after he took a knee at the end of the game. During his postgame conference, Schiano admitted that he instructed his players to hit Manning, and said, "If people watched Rutgers, they would know that's what we did at the end of the game. We're not going to quit. That's the way I coach and teach our players." Rutgers? Let's review Rutgers football under Schiano. His career record at the school was 68-67. His record in the subpar Big East was 28-48. In fairness, Schiano did win four bowl games with the Scarlet Knights -- all of them very prestigious and respected: The Texas Bowl, The International Bowl, the PapaJohns.com Bowl and the St. Petersburg Bowl. Relax with Rutgers football, Greg. You're in the NFL now.
