Actor James Gandolfini, best know for his portrayal of mob boss Tony Soprano, passed away on Wednesday unexpectedly at the too young age of 51. Gandolfini was a Rutgers alum and supporter of the university during Bucs head coach Greg Schiano's time in New Jersey. Schiano, who is on vacation, released this statement just a few minutes ago.

I am sad to hear of the passing of Jim Gandolfini. He was a great supporter of Rutgers Football long before it was fashionable to be so.  His generosity in helping us lent relevance to our football program at a time when it was desperately needed. In addition to his acting acclaim, he will be remembered by all Rutgers people as a compassionate alum and a great New Jerseyian.

I know this is a bad joke, but when he died, was it anything like the end of the...


Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

Hell of an actor. And by most accounts,  a pretty nice guy.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

Better guy than actor by all accounts.   I'm not so sure that his portrayal of Soprano was a stretch for him.  The other parts that I've seen him in Zero Dark Thirty didn't allow him to show his skills much.

Listened to Chris Matthew's MSNBC show last night and he really seemed to memorialize and glamorize Tony Soprano's character instead of Gandolfini.
