    Did Rutgers lose to a 1-AA team?

    I enjoy college football and I can't tell you one player to have ever played for Rutgers.

    OK, just Googled it: Ray Rice.

    I like opening B10 play with Rutgers because it's sort of like a non-conference game anyways

    After the turd yesterday, it would've been nice to have a game worth getting excited about. Rutgers is a whole lot of 'Meh'.

    If I were to play this game, it would be on the Rutgers money line. In part as emotional insurance, in part because it's a pretty good value with KF at the helm.

    Which is just what the team needs. Get guys healthy, hopefully be able to run the ball, and get a good decisive conference road victory.

    I don't have much interest in betting this game, but if I did it would be a small play on the Rutgers money line and a KF double digit dog special.

    Agree.

    I thought the piece sucked. I'm sure Wisconsin fans feel similarly about their team, but over a string of 4 coaches now starting with Alvarez they have somehow averted the indignity of losses to double digit underdogs being a common - nearly annual - occurrence.

    There's something about Kirk's culture that fosters these outcomes, and we can respect him without embracing or denying it.

    Iowa should win by 20+, Rutgers is worse than Iowa State. Safeties and WLB are below average for Iowa so some big plays up the middle for Rutgers could cause them to cover.

    Much like NDSU, Rutgers will play with a nothing to lose attitude. Stack the box on 1st and 2nd down, and blitz out the ass on 3rd down.

    Iowa plays with little energy.

    Iowa 17
    Rutgers 16

    No matter what happens I plan to overreact.

    On a serious note it is hard to tell what this game means. I don't want to entertain the thought of a loss so I am going to pretend there are two probable outcomes. If we come out and run them off the field like we should it doesn't really tell us much because Rutgers is absolutely awful as in ISU or worse awful. If we come out and struggle through a lack luster win it could be due to the amount of injuries we are dealing with on both sides of the ball and a little bit of a hangover from getting demoralized by an FCS team. I think the Minnesota game will be more telling than Rutgers or NW. This all depends on winning the next two games of course which is never a guarantee. If we lose to Rutgers refer to my first sentence and add riot. :icon_razz:

    This game will actually show us a lot going forward. Rutgers is bad. NDSU would beat them handily.

    Maybe but how many years have we struggled against teams we should have crushed? The 2009 season we had to block two field goals to beat Northern Iowa and we beat Arkansas State by 3 points, both games at home. I am not willing to read to much into this one unless we lose or it looks like the players have completely given up.

    They may not be very good but it's only game 4. Still plenty to play for.

    Pretty sure the team isn't going to give up yet.

    Rutgers is bad. New Mexico rushed for almost 300 yards. Their linebackers are awful. Their QB went 12-30 for 173 against NM, 80 of which came on one play. Sound the alarm bells if this game is close.

    Iowa 41
    Rutgers 10
