Rutgers TE Tyler Kroft declares for 2015 NFL Draft

In a bit of a surprise move, Rutgers’ fourth-year junior tight end Tyler Kroft has announced his decision to declare for the 2015 NFL draft. “It definitely was a difficult decision,” he said shortly after making the announcement. “I didn’t have a decision made right up until the bowl game. That’s why I played that bowl game like it was just another game. “After the...

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 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.

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.

This Saturday, Rutgers will be the latest to join the movement, as the Scarlet Knights will bring back their “American Flag” themed lids for their game against Navy.

Sometimes, custom made shirts that insult your opponent before a football game are really funny. Sometimes, they can be a little over the line, but they still make you laugh. However, these shirts made by Rutgers fans before the Scarlet Knights played Penn State on Saturday night were way over the line.

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...

Big Ten Previews, Pt. 2: Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Confession: I’m not real excited about adding Rutgers to the Big Ten. I mean, when Nebraska joined it seemed like a natural fit.
