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. How did...

Rutgers deserved to celebrate. Now It’s Time To Blend In.

Why would the fans storm the field after beating a 2-4 team?  Ridiculous, foolish, just plain dumb were some of the phrases used around the country after seeing the Rutgers fans pour out onto the Field Turf after beating the Michigan Wolverines last Saturday night in High Point Solutions Stadium.  However, like most things, it isn’t as simple as a bunch of college kids creating...

Maryland, Rutgers will only go as far as quarterbacks take them

Maryland and Rutgers have surprised a few folks around Big Ten territory, especially those who have never paid attention to the two programs before this season. See, both enter Week 4 of the college football season as nearly undefeated teams.
