Kenny Britt, Tiquan Underwood, and Dennis Campbell all have one thing in common.  They are key wide receiver targets from last years Scarlet Knight receiving core who are now gone to the NFL (Britt and Underwood), or in Dennis Campbell's case, dismissed from the team.  Now, there are only two WR's left from the 2008 team who have caught a pass.  One of them is Tim Brown, who had 27 catches for 565 yards and 6 touchdowns last year, and the other one is Julian Hayes, who has one catch for 9 yards on his career.  In other words, Tim Brown is the only returning wide receiver with experience.

Tim Brown is the new go-to guy in the Scarlet Knight receiving core.  That's right, a 5'8 receiver who weighs just 165 pounds, is now the top option for RU in the passing game.  To a fan who has never watched Tim Brown, it may appear that Rutgers will have no option to throw to this year.  But then again, those who have never seen him, have never seen the "Big East's Biggest Deep Threat" by Lindys. 

Brown does not overpower the opposing cornerbacks with his power or size.  After all, he is smaller and weaker than most corners.  His weapon is his legs, which he uses to get open for the home run ball.  Remeber, good things come in small packages, and Brown epitamizes that.

Tim Brown has been a very important compliment to the Rutgers success over the past three years.  Now it's time to take control Timmy.  You're the Little Big Man On Campus.
