One of the strangest things about conference realignment has been the way some people talk about Rutgers as a Big Ten or ACC target. There's a difference between being located in a television market and delivering a television market. The casual observer would think of Rutgers as doing the former and not the latter, but apparently that's way off.
Luckily, Syracuse blog Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician is here to explain it all:
In that picture alone are approximately 148,000 invisible people, all crammed together and shuffling down the street like one of those old timey Little Italy pictures taken during the Great Depression.
That's not even the weirdest thing, though: Virtually all of the invisible people in New York City are Rutgers fans. Sure, visible people living in New York City also root for Rutgers -- the guy that sweeps the floor, the guy that carelessly throws his garbage on the floor so it can be swept, etc. That aside, however, you would not believe the volume of invisible people that love Rutgers football and basketball.
