I'm from Uconn so I can't join that bandwagon and just hope it burns down. Football is just not going well for me. ( minus the fact seeing how bad Uconn is we gave rutgers a scare )

I wish I liked basketball and I would be all set.

Yea, I knew Dimitri also (NorthEast), any idea why he isn't even getting a snap at RB? I know Ray Rice is amazing . . . but I would expect Linton to atleast be on special teams . . . he isn't still hurt is he? I know last season he was neck and neck with Rice for the starting job before getting hurt and I heard for this season he was impressive in practice also. We just can't seem to get these Broward RB's going at Rutgers . . . I was close friends with Markis Faycson also (Dillard), and I remember he had a solid game against UM one year, but fell off after.

U can check when they played they first game, I was in the post and let everybody know that I am a fan, mainly because of the talent they get from down here . . . especially out of Broward County.

However, it is true that they have played NOBODY. And they almost lost to South Florida, and struggled with Uconn. Matter fact, tho the Big East is strong record wise, their out of conference schedules have been extremly weak. This could be good or bad, maybe the Big East is a super conference, but we don't know that tho, and as of right now . . . . I would take a 1 loss Auburn or Florida team, over a unbeaten Big East team in the championship . . . unless West Va or Rutgers or Louviille just completely dominate the rest of their games.

Besides Texas? lol that is a big non conference test, and it was in Texas right? They beat Iowa at Iowa, they beat an always tuff Michigan State team, they beat Penn State . . . and don't even factor in beating these teams, they destroyed all of them . . . and has been the most consistent offensive team in the country and one of the top defensively as well. And that Cincy team gave Louiville a good game.

Michigan beat Notre Dame . . . that is a huge non conference test.

Rutgers, West Va, and Louville don't have those type of wins (Not even Louivilles beating of Miami means much with Miami barely beating Duke by 5, its a big non conference win, but not as big as it would have been in years past). To me, that is going to hurt the Big East when it comes down to it all.

But I hope Rutgers can go undefeated, would be an amazing story.

Ummm, you forgot Iowa, who was #13 in the nation when OSU went into Iowa City and dominated.

And you also forgot that Ohio State is set to face their next 1 vs 2 game in the same season. And when they win that, they will face their third #1 vs #2 game in the same season. This has never been done twice, let alone three times.

The Big East is just the same old Big Easy that it always has been.

Ok, I don't mean to rain on the Rutgers parade here, but...
To "turn a program around" takes more than one good season. It takes many seasons. Having one good season in the midst of several bad seasons only to go back (which will likely happen) is not a turn around.

There is a great chance that Rutgers will lose to WVU, Louisville, and a bowl game. Yeah, it was nice seeing them in the top 25, but by seasons end, they will likely be gone. That is just the way that it will happen.

This season will not bring that many good recruits to Rutgers, it just doesn't work like that.

After watching last night's game I think Louisville is riped for a beating, the Cards defense didn't impress me that much so I think Rutgers can put up points and whenever a strong offense(Louisville) meets a strong defense(Rutgers), the results are usually in favor of the defense more times than not.

It will be a close one

1. Rutgers put great pressure on the QB
2. Rutgers will run with Success against them
3. Like you said, it will be hard for ville to get up after this week


For Rutgers to win, they need Teel and the young WR's to step up, hopefully one or more of the Three starting WR's make it back from injurys for the game, that would be huge!

Louisville is tough and for real, but don't underestimate how good the Rutgers "D" is, even I was skeptical when the season began but they are for real and if they can slow the Cards down they have a pretty decent shot to beat them.

Plus the game will be at Rutgers in easily the biggest football game for this University in perhaps all-time, even more than the bowl game last year. Tickets are going for $425 a piece, that's how stoked this area will be for the game and you know the team will feed off this.

They will be fired up and should keep it very close, I can't say they won't lose big if at all but I would be shocked if they did.

if rutgers lost to bad teams, then you can say "there's no reason to think they can beat a good team." but the fact that they beat bad teams shows that they can win games, and there IS a reason to think they can beat good teams.

I don't understand why you need to see a good team beat another good team before you believe they can beat any good team. That makes NO sense man, I have many times seen teams beat good teams without having to beat anybody else that was good.

As far reasons look at the numbers that Rutgers defense has done against some very fair teams this year, that have been dominating and are ranked near the top in most key stats such as rushing yards and points allowed.

Have you even seen them play ANY games this year?

I think it's dumber to say a team can't beat another good team because they haven't beaten a good one yet, you know it's not like they have played good teams and lost to them, because if that was the case I could understand your reservations but that has not been the case.

And while they have not beaten any very good teams, they have beaten some quality teams and in some cases quite handily.

And by the way, I didn't think Rutgers had a good chance to beat the Cards until watching Louisville last night, don't get me wrong they are going to be a tough team to beat but they were far from looking invincible mostly because their defense did not impress.

ahhhhh, they needed Mich or Ohio St to lose or at least play a nailbitter.

The Rutgers formula is this.....(assuming they are unbeaten and win out)

1) Ohio St or Mich.......whoever wins must win huge. Like by 20+ pts. Leave no doubt about who is better.
2) Florida must lose 1 game from here on out.
3) USC must beat ND. Then either Oregon (tonight), Cal, or UCLA must beat USC.
4) Texas must lose 1 game from here on out


I will say this, it wasn't a bad week for Rutgers though. Cal, Auburn, and L'ville got knocked off ahead of ya. And you almost hit the jackpot with Florida. If everything I laid out above happens..........then RUTGERS deserves that final game!! I don't see it happening, but hey ya never know and they got a punchers chance. Better to have a slim chance than no chance.

And Kansas State might end up beating Texas tonight. We smoked them earlier in the season. Them winning would have made Louisville look even better and taken Texas off our backs in the BCS standings.

This makes me even more sick because U of L didn't take care of business when they were supposed to. I was sick after the game Thursday night, tossed and turned all night, and was useless at work on Friday.

Rutgers is a good team, but I still think U of L is better. I'm sure U of L would win 8 maybe 9 out of 10 games. Rutgers was just better for one half Thursday and our coaching staff didn't make any adjustments on offense.

No, I'm pretty serious. After I got away from the game and thought about every thing that happened, there was some pretty simple things that Louisville could have done to negate Rutger's pass rush in the second half. But the coaches just didn't get it done.

How can that be the most rediculous comment you've ever heard? Haven't you read any of the OSU guy's posts in the other threads? He's got alot of funny stuff to say.:D

No, I'm pretty serious. After I got away from the game and thought about every thing that happened, there was some pretty simple things that Louisville could have done to negate Rutger's pass rush in the second half. But the coaches just didn't get it done.

You are shortchanging the RU's defense bigtime, they are VERY good and for real as one of the best defenses in the country. They are fast, athletic, determined and focused and no one this season has had much success on them, what happen to Louisville's offense Thursday night was no accident, not by a longshot.

And plus what I have seen from the Louisville defense from their last two games hasn't impressed me, so to suggest that Louisville would win nine out of ten from Rutgers is an incredible reach.

Well said, give the defense credit, JEEZ. :rolleyes:

I have been watching them all year, the defensive line is undersized but is so fast out of their stance, they take over alot of games. As I said in a post before the game, I said that "Rutgers defensive line would win this game". I think someone laughed in a next post. :lol:

Like they were saying during the broadcast, there are no superstars on the defense, just a group that plays together and works well off of eachother.

There defense is one of the best in the country.

By the way, #36 Courtney Greene, the safety flies all over the field making tackles. He is only a sophmore and will be a top safety in the country by the time he is a senior.

Give Rutgers credit!!!

Rutgers very simply outplayed and out coached Louie.

I don't dispute the fact that U of L was outcoached, but I don't think they were outplayed. They were up 25-7 at one time and if you take away that long middle screen that Rutgers ran with the 3rd string RB on the last drive before halftime, I'm not sure Rutgers would have scored. A 28 - 25 score tells me that no one got "outplayed" in that game. I'm just sayin' that I've seen both teams play enough to be able to make a comparison. I think U of L is the better team, but the coaches screwed up the second half for Louisville.

Even Petrino's post game comment "'Brian was rattled and couldn't keep his eyes DOWN FIELD" tells me what they were thinking. That tells me against the pass rush they were still trying to throw the ball long against that soft zone they were playing behind the rush. That's pretty silly, trying to throw long when there's too many rushers for your line to block. A few short slants or 5 yard curls to Urrutia would have made Rutgers keep 1 or 2 of their LBs back from rushing, allowing the OL to focus on the Rutgers front 4. Coaches didn't make that adjustment and kept trying to throw 10 and out/in or deep posts down the middle. U of L should have been more methotical than going for the deep kill shot.

The whole time Rutgers was rushing, the short middle was open between the hashes. I mean the TE Barnidge had ZERO catches. He's a good pass catching TE and should be the #1 target during a pass rush, and I don't remember a ball even being thrown his way!

Why our you so intent to make excuses for players who didn't show up for the biggest 2nd half of their lives and at the same time try to take credit away from the Rutgers players?

I mean com'on, Kordell Young a 3rd string back? I mean first off he's a 2nd string back - not 3rd - and second he's a true freshman - with a TON of talent - who is playing behind one of the top RB's in the country on a top ten team, that's not to shabby man. But you make it sound like that you guys got beat by some bum on that paly.

And quit trying to put this all on the coaches, did they make mistakes? I'm sure they did but the bottom line these games are won and lost by the young men playing the game, not the old men coaching it.

And by the way, before the game former Rutgers QB Ray Lucas said if you hit the Louisville QB and hit him often he would melt and sure enough he did, there is NOTHING the coaches can do about that.
