Conceptualized by our fearless leader B-REP and kept up by his trusty (and underpaid) protege "Big Red Elvis Servant," this blog caters to the minions of the B-REP and Rutgers University football nations, focusing on tailgates and other social elements as a Scarlet Knight fan.

Rutgers- Maryland Tailgate - Part 1: The Presentation
September 2014: The christening of BRES
For the first game of the 2014 Rutgers season, a presentation was made to Shane that was the embryo that eventually led to the creation of this website. This presentation, capture in the photo to the left taken by Chris, was a framed proclamation with the following words:
You have been promoted. As
can be seen below, from your early years, you have shown great promise in your
endeavors as a Scarlet Knights football fan. There can be no doubt that your
blood runs Rutgers Red (as genetically given to you by your alumni father). You
have also been recognized for your amazing touch football diagrams, play
calling, and unquestioned Corn hole bean bag ability. You continue to impress
the youth of Scarlet Nation on an ongoing basis by your commitment to pre-game tailgating
excellence. Enclosed are the tools you will need for your new position. By the
powers vested in me by Rutgers, THE State University of New Jersey, The B1G Ten
Conference, D.G Yuengling & Sons, Inc. & Elvis Presley Enterprises, you
are now formally known as:
B1G Red Elvis Servant
November 2015: The moment captured in bobble heads!
Little did I know that over a year later this presentation would later be captured in a detailed bobbling plastic figurine given to me as a gift to commemorate this moment. I cannot express enough to the Holobowski family how much this kind gesture means to me. This wonderful personal gift is one that I will always treasure.
