Ok, here it is. I hope its a clean game for both sides. Can the Cinderella story of Rutgers continue? Can U of L quiet the doubters? Find out tonight at 7:30 on ESPN

And of course:


GO CARDS!!

Rutgers will win because of the 'Cards lack of defense and the hype in New Jersey. But, Rutgers will drop a game this season...maybe and likely more than one.

11-09-2006, 02:39 PM
well louisville is clearly the better team. i think their defense is pretty good actually, and are more equipped to handle a team like rutgers than a team like west virginia.

but GO RUTGERS! :D

Yeah trust me when I say that their defense is ALOT better than they showed last Thursday night. Rice and Lenoard don't scare me as much as Slaton and White.

I really dont know who I want to win. Rutgers would be kind of cool but then maybe we're looking at Texas in the title game and no one wants to see that :) But UL losing opens the door just a little more for the outside chance of ND though a few 1 loss teams would need to lose

I think UL wins pretty easy but I'm looking forward to this game

I totally overlooked that fact. This is hard -- I love Texas, and I really really like Louisville.

I guess I'd probably love to see UofL in the Nat'l championship, but if they don't, maybe Brohm will come back for another year.

I'm so torn now!

Look at it this way. Win or lose you win because either UL is line for the Nat'l Championship or with a loss Texas is in pretty good shape.

If Rutgers goes undefeated . . . they should have a shot at the BCS title . . .

i dont think they will get a shot at the title unless florida goes down

i mean florida was #2 and lost at auburn in a close game and they fell something like 7 spots

i think they move top 10 but i think if florida wins this week and next week and when michigan/ohio st plays the gators will be #2 in the bcs standings after november 18th

How do you figure? Neither has as near as hard of schedule as Florida.

If USC wins out they beat #20 Oregon,#11 Arkansas, #9 Notre Dame, #8 Cal. Lose to #24 Oregon State at Oregon state and only by 2 pts. Their schedule is tougher and they dont dial for wins. I dont think they'll win out but if they do they should be considered to play for the national championship.

Texas just lost to only the #1 team in the nation OSU. Other then that they have been playing great since that lost. I predict them to be next year preseason #1 team.


Florida will be in the mix but what kind of out of conference schedule is UCF and Western Carolina. Dialing for wins. Schedule like that should hurt teams in ranking. Teams that play good out conference teams and dont dial for wins should be rewarded in the ranking.

Oregon St ranking is misleading because they are only in the top 25 because they beat USC. I think USC loses atleast 1 more game anyway, but if they do run the table they have to get consideration for the title game. Just dont think the Oregon St ranking really counts.

True, but the polls take up a good percentage of the BCS tally . . . I mean isn't it possible for the voters from the AP and Coaches poll to move Rutgers all the way up to number 2 . . .if they go undefeated? If that happens . . .along with wins over a number 3 Louiville team and a top 10 West Va team . . . I would have to think that may be strong enuff to atleast consider them.

However u are right . . if Florida wins out, with that schedule . . . then u almost gotta put them in the title game, tho it wouldn't be fair to RU either. Very FLAWED system.

Texas just lost to only the #1 team in the nation OSU. Other then that they have been playing great since that lost. I predict them to be next year preseason #1 team.


Florida will be in the mix but what kind of out of conference schedule is UCF and Western Carolina. Dialing for wins. Schedule like that should hurt teams in ranking. Teams that play good out conference teams and dont dial for wins should be rewarded in the ranking.

:lol: Dialing for wins? You gotta be kidding me. You wanna talk about out of conference schedules? How about in conference? No comparison period. Doesn't even matter, USC will lose at least one more.

You don't need a strong out of conference schedule when you're in the SEC. The PAC-10, unlike the SEC, sucks. USC has beaten one good team all year (Cal). IMO Notre Dame isn't very good and Arkansas isn't even one of the stronger teams in their own conference (The conference that is lead by UF). Florida has won three big rivalry games against LSU, Tennessee, and Georgia.

True, but the polls take up a good percentage of the BCS tally . . . I mean isn't it possible for the voters from the AP and Coaches poll to move Rutgers all the way up to number 2 . . .if they go undefeated? If that happens . . .along with wins over a number 3 Louiville team and a top 10 West Va team . . . I would have to think that may be strong enuff to atleast consider them.

However u are right . . if Florida wins out, with that schedule . . . then u almost gotta put them in the title game, tho it wouldn't be fair to RU either. Very FLAWED system.

i dont think there is anyway that they would move up, that far, mostly because they have to jump a lot of good teams, and rutgers started the season way behind i dont think they were ranked

it is unfair for rutgers though, they have shown they are for real

Congrats to Rutgers. What an excellent second half by their defense. I'm not going to make any excuses for the Cards. Rutgers is a excellent football team and to be honest with you U of L should have lost by more than 3 points.

I hate to say it but Petrino was just plainly out coached the second half. U of L didn't change anything they were doing on offense. Rutgers blitzed pretty much every down and U of L can't throw a quick slant to the middle of the field for a 5 yard gain? :confused: It was there the entire second half. The 5 or so yards in front of center was wide open. The one time they did it, they threw to Uruttia for a first down. Then they go right back to trying to throw the ball down field or to a 10 and IN/OUT pattern that is covered by Rutgers' zone. Usually U of L is the one making adjustments at half time. Hopefully Petrino will learn from this.

Oh well, hopefully we can still make a BCS bowl. Bring on South Florida. We owe them for that embarrasment last year.

Impressive win. Defense played outstanding and the offense really stepped up. Louisville has a good defense and they just got ripped. Rutgers really should be top 5. They're being penalized for their lack of history. The Big East better get more respect from the computer next year because its a crime if Rutgers doesnt get a shot at the title

The greatest way to change ones mind is money.

Im not saying he will leave Rutgers, but if UM wants him that badly he is probally as good as gone.

I know he has said he would like to stay at Rutgers but all coaches say that.

Miami isn't the job it was a month ago. With the brawls and players getting shot and all. It isn't that good of a job anymore.

Schiano is as good as gone. Just will he leave after this year or next year. From reports Penn St is high on him. Mich St is open. If he doesn't take either there, then maybe he waits a year and see's whats out there.

I'm not so sure about Miami now to be honest. That might be more of a headache than its worth. And the money won't go away it's going to be there from any school. It isn't like Miami is the Yanks paying above and beyond what everyone else is here...

I still think UM has at least as much chance as anyone else, all the headache players now will be gone in 3-4 years at most and its not like we dont have young talent (Javaris James in particular). Not to mention if your a good recruiter your job will be a breeze in Miami will all the kids in South Florida.

Even if he doesnt end up coaching at Miami which he very well might not, it just goes to show you why its hard to build a smaller program into a consistant winner, after a great season the coach always seems to split and they never build on that success.

Rutgers isn't a smaller program though. It has been a BAD program.

The smaller programs are the Utah's that once after they lose an Urban Myer you never hear of again.

Rutgers plays in a BCS conference. That isn't a smaller program. They have been a BAD program that never won. Big difference. He can leave Rutgers and Rutgers can build on this success.

Are you basing this on anything or is this just your opinion? Because he has given no indication whatsoever he wants out and in fact every indication points to him being happy where he is at like for example the University selling him land dirty cheap that they own in Piscataway so he can build his and his wife's - who LOVES New Jersey and is from there - dream house.

On top of that he is about to cash in one of the best recruiting classes in the Big East starting with LB Manny Abreau who committed a few weeks back, the man is about to clean up in this area like no other RU head coach could have imagined in their lifetime.

And as far as cash whatever anyone plans to offer him RU can and will match or exceed other offers, this is not Boise St where the cash flow is limited. RU is starting to see the money potential of what this program will bring in, when they start to light the Empire State Building in honor of your football team you know you are just more than a surging program but one that is also unopposed in the whole NYC area.

When you really think about it there is really nothing that Rutgers can't offer that the Penn St and Miami's of the college world can, seriously.

The wife does not like South Florida, she's a northeastern girl true and true, if he was to ever leave I think it would be for Penn St, not Miami.

can't win a national title at Rutgers.

This year is a prime example. Could go unbeaten and not even play for it all.

That would NEVER happen at PSU or Miami

I disagree they could very well finish in the top 7 this year, and if they win out next year they will be in the NC game.

Maybe not this year but if he stays and continues to build a contender and strong reputation its very possible.

But what makes you think that can't change? If Rutgers goes 12-0 and doesn't get a shot at the title that would be the worst case scenario for the BCS and their people is to short change a college team in the NYC area of all places with our media fueling the outrage, don't underestimate the power of the NYC media.

On top of that as long as the Big East teams keep making inroads and progress as Rutgers, Louisville, Pittsburgh and WV are doing and if Syracuse can get back their football program back on track all of a sudden this is not the weak conference that it once was and will force people to entertain them as legitimately as they do any other conference.

My point being is for to suggest this will always be the norm for Big East every year is to ignore the great progress the conference is making.

I think the thing you have to remember here is no matter how far up the polls that Rutgers goes, the computer scores are still going to be low because of their strength of schedule. I just don't think their BCS score is going to be high enough at the end of the season to get them to the top 2. Especially if Florida wins the SEC.

Oh I agree there is no real chance for RU to get a shot this year, but like I said if a team who has taken the country's biggest market by storm gets shafted, I don't want to be the BCS folks, it won't be pleasant for them and hopefully this will be what it takes to fix this joke of a system that they back.
