Michigan vs Rutgers Is A Showcase of How Wrong We All Were

This past spring, when the prognosticators of college football were busy telling us all how well or poorly our respective favorite teams would match up this coming season, none of them predicted what will be taking place in High Point Solutions Stadium on Saturday night.  Well, at least not the way it is playing out, that’s for sure. Most of the predictions could have stated...

Big 10 Basketball Preview: #14 Rutgers

What do you get if you take a 12-21 team, take away 5 of it's top 8 players, and move it to a much tougher conference?  Sadness.  Lots and lots of sadness.  That is my prediction for the Rutgers hoopers this season.Actually, it's not all bad.  They do have their top 2 guys back in senior point guard Myles Mack (14.9 points, 4.3 assists per game last year) and junior power...

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. Rutgers fans are somewhat acquainted with the American Athletic...

Rutgers RB Paul James done for the season with torn ACL

Rutgers could easily be 4-0 if not for the mistake filled game against Penn State. Much of the successful start can be due to the legs of running back Paul James, who before the injury had 5 touchdowns and 363 yards. The Scarlet Knights Head coach Kyle Flood confirmed the torn ACL James suffered during the 31-24 win at Navy.  In the game, James had a touchdown and 96 rushing yards...

Report: Rutgers AD Julie Hermann Made A Crude Jerry Sandusky Joke

Oh Rutgers… Rutgers athletic director Julie Hermann may be in a bit of trouble, to say the least. Just a few days after having to apologize for the school’s Facebook account accidentally posting photos of Scarlet Knights fans wearing “Beat Ped State” shirts, it’s been reported by NJ Advance Media that Hermann herself made a crude joke related to the Jerry Sandusky scandal...

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. Imagine what we’d be talking about had the Terps beat West Virginia or Rutgers opened up Big Ten play with a home win over Penn State? Those...

Photo: Rutgers To Wear Its American Flag Helmets For Game Against Navy

We’ve seen a number of college football programs bust out red, white and blue helmets over the past few weeks to honor our nation’s servicemen. 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. Rutgers first unveiled them back in 2011. Out of respect for @NavyFB...

Big Ten’s East Coast gamble shows immediate payoff

When the Big Ten surprised everyone by moving to add Maryland and Rutgers nearly two years ago, many Midwestern fans weren’t sure that this move was wise. After all, what do these schools possibly have to add to the Big Ten? Neither are good in football, Maryland isn’t the Maryland of old on the basketball court and Rutgers has long been a joke that arena too. However, the answer...

Photo: Rutgers Football Posts Pictures Of Fans Wearing ‘Beat Ped State’ Shirts On Its Official Facebook Page

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. These fans made ‘Beat Ped State’ shirts that featured a stylized Nittany...

Photos: Rutgers Fan Welcomes Penn State With By Tanning Message Into His Chest, Back

Well, Rutgers’ first Big Ten game is going about as weird as you’d expect – and it hasn’t even started yet. Saturday, one Scarlet Knights fan was spotted with a special welcome message for Penn State fans who made the trip to New Jersey. He apparently decided to tan his chest and back with the messages “Hello Big Ten” and “Welcome To Rutgers.” I don’t know why....

Rutgers Fan Suntans “Hello Big Ten” On Chest (Photo)

    Rutgers is playing its first Big Ten game on Saturday against Penn State and Scarlet Knights fans are getting pumped any way they can.

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...
