PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) Hours before Jim Harbaugh led yet another satellite camp, some Rutgers fans let the Michigan coach know that not everyone was welcoming him to the Garden State: A bunch of red block R car magnets were left on the field at Paramus Catholic High School, along with a teddy bear and a letter telling Harbaugh to "go home."
A nastier message was embedded in the note.
With the satellite camp boom still a new development, Michigan and Ohio State took one of the fiercest rivalries in college football all the way to New Jersey this week with dueling camps held at exactly the same time, 30 miles apart in the bedroom communities west of New York City. After the Wolverines agreed to be the headliner at the Paramus Catholic camp, it wasn't long before Urban Meyer and his Buckeyes staff agreed to help an old friend, thrusting Rutgers into the middle of it all with an event at Farleigh Dickinson. The camps drew more than 1,400 hopeful high school football players.
