This just in - coach Ash is holding out on announcing his starting QB for Friday nights game. He feels he needs to keep his decision close to the vest to gain a competitive advantage against Ohio State??

No, UMASS.

That, plus 2-3 trick plays and a well timed turnover could push them over the top. Here's hoping this trickeration backfires.

Here’s the latest sign that McLane Carter will be Rutgers’ starting quarterback against UMass
Let me preface this by saying that I’m all for watching Rutgers self implode weekly against group of 5 schools and lose 70-0 against Big 10 teams. With that being said I really like what Ash at the helm does for our program so I’m kind of hoping they find a way to win about 4 or maybe 5 games and keep him...

McLane Carter sounds like a trust fund kid who is now on a rowing scholarship to Yale. His brother’s name is likely either Wellington or Fitzy, who’s a middy on the Dartmouth lax team. Their grandfather was surely an investment banker for Goldman.

Or the Rutgers’ QB. Either or.

He’s a transfer from Texas Tech.

Remember Johnathon Lewis, the NJ QB Rutgers fans were glad to get rather than Devito? The QB who is now a TE, and would probably play quit a bit? Out for the season, ruptured achilles. Sucks, worse kind of injury too.

I remember one of their recruiting experts came on this board and lectured us all on how much better Lewis was than Devito, how the Rutgers coaching staff knew how to evaluate true talent at quarterback much better than the Syracuse staff, etc.

They then lectured us how great that Sitkowski? kid that was beat out for the starting job at his high school by a future walk on at a real BCS school.

You would think at some point, some of their fans would stop being so gullible and learn to be a little more grounded in reality. Maybe it has happened now that Coach Ash has established their baseline B1G performance level? I stopping visiting their boards years ago. Too much idiocy.

ESPN Has Released Its Initial "Bottom 10" Rankings

"ESPN’s weekly “Bottom 10” rankings are a who’s who of who’s bad in college football. You don’t want your team’s name on this list.


The best thing about the “Bottom 10,” which is put together by longtime ESPN writer Ryan McGee, is that he doesn’t just pick on the little guys. McGee is unafraid to put Power 5 teams in the mix.

The initial “Bottom 10” for the 2019 season was released this morning. Only one Power 5 team made the cut, though two others did get mentioned indirectly.

Here are the 10 unlucky entrants:
  1. UTEP
  2. Rice
  3. UConn
  4. San Jose State
  5. Week Zero Performances
  6. New Mexico State
  7. UMass
  8. Central Michigan
  9. Coastal Carolina
  10. Rutgers
Rutgers is the lone Power 5 representative right now, though Louisville, Oregon State, Kansas and a couple of others are knocking on the door."

Like seeing Central Michigan on there too. Cheap shot against Dungey won’t be forgotten

Based on this, the Rutgers-Umass opening game should be a winner

Rutgers currently sitting at 111 in the S&P+ rankings, one spot behind...

Liberty.

Cuse comes in at 53 which is a scam.
53 isn't a scam if you looked at the underlying numbers from last year, as well as our recruiting class in comparison to our peers. We got "lucky" by the numbers last year due to our special teams and turnovers, and that's why regression to the mean could happen this year.

I believe our final sp+ was 40 which is obviously significantly worse than our final ranking, but maybe that says more about sp+ than last year’s team.

I admire your forthrightness and maybe even courage. But you must realize that many have amnesia on the breaks we got and can only point to the luck others had that kept us from going 13-0.

Optimism is so much moe fun than realism. And you cannot break the immutable process of:
1. Pre-Season Optimism
2. Reality
3. Disappointment
4. Anger
5. And a Search for the Guilty.

And no matter how many times (seasons) some go through this, there is little or no learning that occurs from experience.

Of course, there was the 1987 season:
1. We could be good this year
2. Hey, this team is pretty good
3. This team is very good
4. That Pat Dye!

I will take issue with the idea that recruiting classes have much to do with this year's results. That only happens when school's recruit the bluest of the blue chippers, who can make a difference as freshman. The guys we brought in this year will most likely make a difference two to five years from now. This isn't hoops.

SU was on this list frequently in the 1970's.

You ruin everything...but you already know that. Don't you. I have been actually saying the same thing. But I don't ruin anything. Still, I think 8 wins is bare min for this bunch.
