Unless you are fluent in Twitter-ese the hashtag at the top of this article makes no sense to you. It’s the rallying cry Rutgers has used throughout its entrance into the Big Ten. 

Most people – okay, no one – outside the state of New Jersey welcomed Rutgers into the Big Ten with open arms. If the Big Ten Network did not exist, they say, Rutgers would still be a member of the American Athletic Conference. 

As the kids say, haters gonna hate.

Rutgers is using its AAC exodus as something of a rebirth, a chance to restart its entire athletic history. 

This video does a good job of explaining that.
