Rutgers Wasn’t Blowing Smoke Regarding Fitting Into the B1G

From November 2012 until the beginning of the football season this year, it was a common thought that Rutgers doesn’t fit in the Big Ten, they are going to get killed.  The regular refrain from pundits was about the same: Rutgers, get used to being a doormat in the Big Ten.  A second one, heard in the same breath: Don’t expect to get to a bowl this year, this isn’t the Big...

Rutgers Fans Need To Stop The Knee-jerk Reactions

I wish I were as smart as people on the Internet.  It seems that wherever I went online on Saturday evening through Monday morning, the discussion boards were full of people who knew exactly how to have Rutgers beat Wisconsin on Saturday afternoon.  It is very frustrating.  They all have the answers, and evidently those who actually do these jobs don’t know a damned thing...

Rutgers Took A Beating, But The Scarlet Knights Won’t Back Down

Ouch!  That one really hurt.  Rutgers first Big Ten away game was the rude awakening everyone warned them it was going to be.  The REAL welcome to the B1G took place in front of 106K fans, and made Rutgers fans feel like the ultimate outsiders, aliens, if you will, being punched in the face as our welcome.  Yep, welcome to the Big Ten.  It kinda reminded me of THIS.

Rutgers goes from being the trap game to playing in one

Can you have a trap game if you’ve been considered a trap team?  This week, Rutgers goes up against its final 2014 non-conference opponent, Tulane from New Orleans.  Tulane has played a fairly aggressive Power 5 schedule so far, up against Georgia Tech and Duke, all while moving into a new conference this year, the AAC.

The Rutgers Review: The Scarlet Knights Are On The Board

Rutgers is on the board.  As their coach Kyle Flood says, each week the team works to get to 1-0, and they are 1-0.  That’s the good news, the bad news is the team still has that murderous schedule coming for the rest of the season. It was a different sort of noise coming out of the Big Ten trumpets following Thursday’s win over Washington State.  Less of the “Rutgers was...
