Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Robin Thicke ft. Pharrell and T.I.-Blurred Lines

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights have a football program that is almost impossible to get a read on. They are one of the few FBS teams that is an original college football program, going so far as to being known as the birthplace of college football.

But that deep tradition has not carried over to any major success on the field, despite their status as a state school that has major access to elite East Coast prospects. And to add to the confusion, they are now an East Coast school in the Big Ten, just like Maryland, playing a bunch of midwestern teams.

So what is this?

Well, it is blurred lines, and that should be the school’s fight song.

The band as a whole could handle this easily, from the beat to Robin Thicke singing and going “Hey Hey Hey” in the background. The percussion part would be great as well because there are so many moving parts in the rhythm.

But the funniest would be the debate as to whether or not Rutgers or Princeton is the original elite college football program and them bragging about who came first. It relates to Marvin Gaye’s family, who sued over this song saying he had it first.
