Real season begins on Saturday.
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.
Fuck this game
I like opening B10 play with Rutgers because it's sort of like a non-conference game anyways
With all of New York City watching, too!
We have given Rutgers hope. "We are sort of like an FCS team guys so why not us?"
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.
Hawks -14. @jabberjaw @Shawneemicks @atemp post your betting slips. You guys should be all in.
Rutgers over/under 200 yds rushing?
Don't forget @Gushawk . He's one of them too.
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.
Bring it in!!!
It's been a few years....and I still hate Rutgers in the Big Ten
This is treading too close to Chris Williams level... Not easy; awesome!
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.
lets promote Brian and give him a raise..
Has NLP ever posted where he didn't come off like a whiny little bitch?
have you ever contributed anything of substance?
I'm not sure how posting a stat makes someone a whiny bitch.
He takes care of that with the nepotism stuff
No. Fucking. Way~!!!!
This is going to be a REAL long week on Halo.
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.
I don't believe that.
Coaches will be going rhabdo on some asses this week.
Hawks fuckstomp 38-10
"If Iowa can’t solve its left side issues, its offensive predictability will be matched only by its ineffectiveness. The Hawkeyes might just get their gem of a quarterback killed in the process. "
Land of Ten
Thanks for the link.
They are close according to Sagarin.
96 Western Illinois
97 Jacksonville State
98 Central Florida(UCF)
99 Ball State
100 Iowa State
104 James Madison
105 South Dakota State
106 Northern Illinois
Hawks win big.
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.
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.
This game will actually show us a lot going forward. Rutgers is bad. NDSU would beat them handily.
What are the best bars in new Brunswick (directed at those that may have been there in the past).
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.
This might be too long of a drive, but I'd definitely check out http://www.hickoryparkames.com/.
Daniels will rush for 125 yards against these slugs, cementing in kirks head that running him into the ground is the way to go
Nah. They were using Wadley plenty the first two games.
Seasons over, AZ. Now halo has more time on the weekends to workout!
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.
