    people still read Bleacher Report? That sight exist to take shots at Iowa State. Deadspin thinks they are a poo stain on the underpants of Journalism.

    I'm glad you put that first so I didn't have to finish the whole thing.

    Using that logic, ISU must be undefeated and playing in the NC game?

    I'm sure he's good, but I'm also sure that Bleacher Report just pulled that out of their ***, and did very little research on Iowa State. Probably just looking at passing yards allowed, without taking conference into account.

    Well looked like Pitt, West Virginia, and Cincinnati all had the defenses to shut him down as they all held him under 50 yards. Also there are two other teams that held him under 100. I have no doubt our secondary will limit him all day. Might be the best secondary Rutgers has faced all year.

    Lucky we have a month to plan to contauin Sanu.

    Our bigger concern may be scoring points. RU is 16th in nation for points allowed in a game? Any ideas how we might approach the game?

    RU has a good Defense and a very good Pass D. However they did not play against a murder row's of offense in the Big E. The top 5 Offensive teams in the BE are ranked, 17, 31, 56, 84, and 90.

    They have a similar team as we do in that they have a strong D with less than explosive offense. I think we'll approach the game like we did against KSU. With the team that executes (less mistakes) pulling out the win late in the game.

    I think this would be an interesting article/comparison of Blackmun and Sanu for Cyclonepedia. Howe good is he on thrid down. How many first downs did he pick up. How many yard after catch.

    They are 2 different type of receivers Blackman isn't the type of guy you can shut down, you just have to contain him (like LJ did).The bottom line is that in our conference we are exposed to quality receivers week in and week out. I'm not scared of this guy.

    P.S. Bleacher Report sucks (had to keep the theme going)

    Oklahoma State had other explosive players we had to worry about, both running backs and receivers. The Rutgers offense doesn't seem to have similar weapons to work with.
