"The Big Ten is the Coup de Grâce"

Some donors, like Pete Hendricks, never wavered. Hendricks, who has attended Rutgers football games for nearly 50 years, telegraphs his boosterism by displaying a big letter "R" in the window of his law office in New Brunswick.

"We have to be unified," said Hendricks, who with his wife helps fund two football scholarships at Rutgers. "The Big Ten is the coup de grâce."
