    Rutgers Lost at U. Conn.

    Rutgers lost at U. Conn. 40-22. We beat U. Conn. there without our current starting QB.

    Additionally, our SOS is one of the toughest in the country.

    Looking forward to shutting up some of the Rutgers fans.

    What are you saying? That we should start Steele Jantz? That Paul Rhoads is seriously considering the UConn job if it opens up? That our SOS was too strong to let us into the bowl? That Rutgers fans are overconfident for a reason?

    Help! Your rational approach isn't telling me exactly how I should panic and fret! I have rights!

    I think it'll be a tough game no matter what has happened to each team in the past few months.

    Check your facts, Barnett played in that game.

    I'm with this. It is going to be a tough game no matter what. The bottom line is that they are only a 4 loss team that knows how to win and has the drive to win. They will practically be playing a home game at yankee stadium also. This wont be a cake walk.

    UCONN also lost 35-27 to Cincinnati, who Rutgers beat 20-3 the week before we played UCONN. The transitive property doesn't work in cfb. Especially when you are trying to compare Big East teams. We systematically beat the crap out of each other.

    Schiano historically has his teams up for bowl games.

    Yes the comparing scores of common opponents never works. ISU has played a tough schedule and performed well the last half of the season.

    ISU vs 3 teams in the top 15 of the BCS. Won by 6 (in 2OT), lost by 20 (on the road), lost by 7 (on the road vs a team who had a bye before the game). ISU's defense vs the #3 and #4 offenses in the Nation gave up 50 points combined in regulation. Our defense will keep the team in the game.

    How has Rutgers performed against the best of the Big East?

    Rutgers lost 41-31 vs. WVU. We were up by 10 at the half and some moron made the decision to plow the snow off the field turf. Best halftime show I had seen in a while. It was like watching the Keystone Cops. It was all WVU in the 2nd half.
    Other than that, we lost by 2 to Louisville (a game we should have won), and UCONN was just one of those WTF losses. Defense never showed up.

    We beat Cinci 20-3.

    That said, I think we'll see 2 good teams come out in the Pinstripe.

    Re: Rutgers Lost at U. Conn.

    We have gotta remember that uconn was a mess offensively when we played them, I didn't pay attention to them too much after our game but surely they improved quite a bit by the end of the year. I think we match up really well with Rutgers, I'm looking forward to another tight game coming down to the last series. It will be interesting to see what our offense can do against them.

    Can't wait to see what LJ can do against another top WR.

    Looks like the teams are similar. Competitive in games against favored opponents with chances to win down the stretch. Your UConn game was like our Missouri game which was the worst game we played.

    I think this game will be like the game we played against KSU, teams playing physical and trading punches with the team that makes the "big" mistake down the stretch losing.

    UCONN like Syracuse are rivalry games for Rutgers. These games are always hard fought with ill feelings amongst both sides (more so for Syracuse). A lot of players on uconn and Syracuse were passed over during the recruiting process by Rutgers (Tri-state area is a hot bed of D1 talent every year) so players on those teams always play us with a chip on their shoulder...

    I wouldn't read TOO much into those games...

    In the uconn game, Rutgers came out flat after a big win against Cincinnati (hadn't beaten them since 2005) for whatever reason.

    UCONN came out fired up after losing 4 out of 5 against Rutgers from 2006-2010 (they won in 2007). 2 of Rutgers' wins during this period were last minute combeacks (and HOW SWEET THEY WERE!!!! )...

    ANYWAY we lost that game on Sat Nov 27th with a BE co-championship on the line...

    Much of our fanbase is still bitter and only now starting to back down off the ledge...

    ------------------

    Rutgers has a strong mostly young defense (top in the BE and nationally in many defensive categories) and a bipolar offense, GREAT but young skill players, with hot and cold OL play...

    With JUST a consistently AVERAGE OL we would have won the BE this year and likely finished 10-2 or 11-1 imho. We lost UNC and Louisville games by 2 points due to offensive break downs, chipy FGs, dropped easy TDs etc.

    JMHO

    Here is one of those last minute uconn wins if you're curious...
