Vine: Maryland’s Dez Wells Bites On A Shot Fake, Jumps Over A Rutgers Player, Forces A Travel

We’re not stranger to Maryland star Dez Wells’ freakish athleticism, but he’s really reiterated it tonight against Rutgers…by getting tricked by a shot fake. Rutgers guard Myles Mack faked a shot, got Wells to bite, which resulted in Wells jumping directly over the 5-foot-10 Mack, who then traveled, probably because he couldn’t believe what had just happened. This is an...

Notre Dame makes embarrassing mistake

Chris Muller is a rising redshirt junior at Rutgers. He has appeared in 26 games for the Scarlet Knights the past two seasons, making 25 starts at right guard.  One of those starts was actually against Notre Dame in the 2013 Pinstripe Bowl. Apparently, the Fighting Irish staff either didn’t remember Muller from that game, or were so impressed that they are attempting to recruit...

Rutgers Wasn’t Blowing Smoke Regarding Fitting Into the B1G

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.

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...
