Giantsfan1080
11-24-2012, 02:50 PM
No because if they beat us next week they would have 2 BE losses and we would also. They'd then have the H2H matchup.

This game didn't matter and the players clearly played that well.

Nove doesn't suck but the coaches don't let the offense do anything. It's unfortunate. OL sucked balls today also.

Good quote from Politi today:

"I have a friend who doesn't get the culture of college sports, and I tried to explain it like this once: You can be the most diehard Giants fan in the world, but you can never be a Giant. If you have that diploma on the wall from Rutgers, you are a Scarlet Knight. It matters to you in a different, more personal way. It is part of your identity."

Nova is not terrible and we have enough weapons at the skill positions to take care of the ball. The coaches call the offense way too conservative. Our D is the team though and should be able to stop the Louisvill offense which currently has no running game and a banged up Bridgewater. I'm not confident by any means but it's a game we should absolutely win at home with all the marbles on the table.

I can't stand him or the offense. The play calling last game was piss poor too! We are not going to win if he stinks it up and on top they call bush league plays.

This is why I am an NFL fan. If we suck at QB draft or sign one. In college, you are who you recruit. So in this system, the rich get richer, while bad programs get ok to bad recruits. I really wanted to see Savage play but he left then.

I am not confident with this QB and system. I like our WRs, but again every throw I am worried it doesn't get picked off.

I still don't get why Nova beat out Dodd. And I don't get how there was no talk of switching among the coaches. Some say they were afraid to bench him cause of recruiting at Don Bosco. If that is true it is truly pathetic. Regardless of the reason, I don't understand how the coaches didn't think Dodd warranted at least a look at some point. Whenever coaches try to avoid a controversy by not giving the backup a look, it means the starter is the starter for the wrong reasons.

We better coach up our WRs better especially in a big game. Our QB stinks, and we need a better QB. I actually miss Mike T. after seeing Nova this season. And the conservative play calling throughout the season.

14-3 and the fake we ran resulted in a TD, which could have made it 21-3. That penalty was the changing point in the game. They scored, fumble by us, they score and the offense stunk.

We are going to get raped in the Big Ten with this talent.

This being said: I fully really how emotionally invested I am in this team. The Politi line sums it up beyond perfectly. Being a part of the school, the culture, the atmosphere. It's something that you can't even describe and it's why the wins and losses mean so much more than they do for pro sports teams, or could for pro sports teams.

That being said: I cried after the game. My roommate and I were the last in the bleachers. I'm surprised a photo hasn't hit the internet of us crying in the bleachers together.

I know you don't want to hear this....especially coming from another Rutgers alum but...

.....come on man....

It's a football game. Let's put this in perspective for a bit. It's a football game.

And I will say this about your education: College is a 2 way street. We as alumni need Rutgers for the education, but Rutgers also got money, research, and aid out of us. It's a 2 way street. They didn't offer us anything for free. We paid for it. College is a business just like anything else.

Our college is the school we went to. It's not family, it's not friends, it's a coporation that sells education.

We get what we get out of it, and they get our money, and we both walk away satisified. Or if you didn't do well, then not so much. But the point I'm trying to make is, your college is a stepping stone for your career, and that's it.

Don't let them sucker you into thinking anything more than that.

I'm gonna disagree with you on this one BBD. It's cheesy and cliche but the feelings just being there, the atmosphere of those games, it's more than that. Also realize, this is the team I've been following since I could understand football. Rutgers has always been more than just a team for me and this place is more than just a school or stepping stone for me. The only school I applied to. The school who's players I've been pushing on here for god knows how many years. It's just the feelings, it's more than being just a fan. I felt apart of the team. I've never felt more upset over any giants loss or anything like that. It's just completely different. I am a scarlet knight. Always will be. I'll never be a Giant. I know you're an alum and football fan but Rutgers means just so much more to me. I can't even put it into words

Scotty. Get your education. Build your network. Do all the internships you can get and use all the resources Rutgers has to offer you while you're there.

But remember, and always remember, everything you did there and get there, you paid for it.

I understand being a fan. I do. I'm obviously a diehard Giant and Knick fan. But let's keep things in perspective.

I think there is a middle ground between those perspectives. I love Rutgers and being at a game with that kind of atmosphere is fantastic. Its electric in a way that pro sports doesn't quite compare to because everyone has shared something. Your college experience is more than a simple business transaction. While you are completely gouged by raising tuition costs as the university spends more and more on an athletic progam that, honestly, hasn't been that successful overall and has, in some ways, grown out of control with power (more under schiano, but still), It is important to look past it to an extent and realize that the community of Rutgers has all gone through it with you. You and your fellow alums, professors, etc have all been screwed time and again but Rutgers is your school.

Scotty, to an extent, its admirable that you can believe in Rutgers to the extent that you do, but to be perfectly honest with you, your degree of fandom is a bit unhealthy. Your really need to try to relax just a bit.

Sorry for ******** run on sentences. Proofreading is for bitches and I like to ramble.

Giantsfan1080

To put it simply college shapes your life. Away from home for the first, being independent, making choices good and bad and so on. Yeah you're paying for the education but it's so much different than a professional sports team and this is coming from someone who has spent countless hours following the Giants and Mets. Last night for me was devastating.

Forenci
11-30-2012, 11:21 PM
Haha, I wanted to say what BBD said but I didn't feel like it was my place since this is your guys' thread.

I understand it's different because you're attending a school, but honestly, it's just a game. School comes first for me in every sense of the word. I would never miss a class for the sake of going to a game. A game that could end just as quickly as it began if the university couldn't afford the team or they got the death penalty for cheating.

I am very attached to my school, but not because of college sports. I had a lot of fun going to UConn games (mainly basketball because, lets be honest, we've been mediocre at best) but at the end of the day it's not going to define my college experience in the slightest. The friends I've made, the connections, the interaction and becoming a campus leader are what made my time at UConn so special. Not the basketball team (which I loved). I could easily give up football or any other of my attachments for more important things in life because it really is just a game. I will never cry over a sporting event because I wouldn't ever have it mean that much to me. I could cry over other things, but I couldn't do it for what amounts to just a game.

I respect your point of view but I don't believe its healthy to be that attached to something which is essentially irrelevant when it boils down to it. An education is far far and away the most important thing. College sports and teams take a way back seat to that.

Even the Giants, whom I am a diehard fan of, would take a back seat to friends, family, school, work, etc. Sure, I might get angry because of something. I might get annoyed, I might even be sad but when push comes to shove I would give it up in a heart beat if my any of those things took priority over it.

Also, RUTGERS BLOWS!

Haha, just kidding but I thought I'd end on a lighter note.

Speaking for myself but sports are such a big thing for me. I know its ridiculous but it really helps balance everything for me even when I get upset because of a loss like last night. I know I sound like a loser saying this but the distraction it brings to real life really helps which might be unfortunate to others but it works for me. I'm very upset today because of the loss but I still went to work and functioned like a boss because I know how to balance it.

You guys don't post as much as I do but you still take the time out to visit this site so I know you feel the same way.

Oh no, I completely understand that element. Sports serve as a great way to get your mind off life and provide a great stress reliever (even if it seems like a stress inducer at times). It allows you to be involved in a community and social structure. Being a fan of the same team is almost like being friends instantly.

Occasionally I run into a Giants fan here down south and whenever I do I make friends with them almost instantly. It's so funny. It's almost like a fraternity (but not a lame one like most fraternities).

But will I ever cry over a game? Highly doubtful. Will I get upset at times? More than likely. It's a fine balance.

It was a chance to go to a BCS game for the first time in the school history. It was a big deal. It was my last game as a student here. It was under the lights with so much on the line and my last game here. I have absolutely no shame that I shed tears over the game. None. It's not like I actually went home and was clinically depressed over the game. It's not like I haven't been able to function. We're all huge sports fan and this university means a lot to me so I really have no shame or regret about shedding tears in the stadium after the loss which was the toughest loss I've ever had to deal with as a sports fan

I understand being a fan. We all post here for the same reason. We're passionate fans. I think for me personally, the biggest losses I've ever had to get over were in 94 when the Knicks lost game 7 of the Finals, in 99 when we lost to the Spurs, the 2000 SB to the Ravens, and the loss to the 49ers in 2002 in the playoffs.

I think the 08 playoff loss to the Eagles is up there too.

We all use sports as an escape from reality. All of us. But let's keep in mind that we use sports as entertainment. We entertain ourselves with it.

I understand school loyalty, but I don't understand devotion. Because I look at it like this, Rutgers wouldn't let me in their facility if I didn't pay my tuition. I paid for the rights to their facility, access to their teachers, their research facilities, their libraries etc. I didn't get to use it for free. I paid for the rights to use those tools.

And if I didn't pay for it, I wouldn't be allowed to use it. What do I owe them? What do they owe me? Nothing. It was a business transaction. I needed them to advance my career, they needed my money.

I guess my loyalty to Rutgers doesn't mean as much to me because I've went to other schools too. I've done post graduate education at 2 other colleges so I guess my loyalty to Rutgers is effected by that.

About as average as you can get but I wasn't expecting anything amazing this year considering none of the highly ranked NJ kids ever wanted to stay home.

Barnwell is a stud and is going to be a contributor from day one. Overall the DB's we brought in will be the strength of this group and that's what we needed as most of starting secondary is gone.

I think we have a lot of guys flying under the radar as potential steals such as Ayres, Internicola, Patton, Liston, and Cioffi.

Sounds like Dave Cohen(LB Coach) will get promoted to Defensive Coordinator. Antony Campanile will probably move from grad assitant to DB Coach. This is big because he can then begin to recruit and he's tied in big time to the North Jersey football programs. His brother is the head coach at BC and he used to coach at Don Bosco.

On offense it seems like Ron Prince is the frontrunner for the job. He is the ex Head Coach at Kansas State.

They want Camps to recruit like the others coaches so any spot that opened up he was going to take. He was the OC at Bosco so he does have ability to coach on both sides of the ball. He said himself he likes D better but this move is to get him in a full time position. He'll eventually go back to a defensive coaching spot when something else opens.

Wilson was named DB Coach as soon as the announcement was made that he was coming over.

Prince is pretty much your normal pro style OC. He might run some more motion than Brock but I'm not really sure.

Prince is supposed to be a good recruiter but most likely he's only going to be here for a year maybe 2 at the most. Someone said he ran a west coast style offense so that's something we have to keep an eye on as well.

Good get for us last night. Sidney Gopre who is probably going to be rated as the best LB in state and a top 10 player overall in NJ. He only had 2 offers right now but that's because of a grade issue. Rutgers will keep on him and I expect him to qualify for us next year when Signing Day rolls around. Should be a high 3* and a possible 4* if he camps and measures well.

Overall this class should be much better than last years. We're in very good with 2 top 100 OL and a plethora of highly rated WR's.

I've been telling you for a long time now, college is a business transaction. You paid them to get an education, you in turn get a diploma that you use to get into the job field and establish a career with, they get your money.

It's a business transaction. Don't think for one second that the leadership or college gives 2 shits about you. They don't. The corruption and fake sense of community and morals and all that...it's all a bunch of ********.

Don't let them sucker you into believing in any of it. It's all ********. Theres a sense of community amongst alumnis, but not to the school itself. **** them. They're crooks. All of them.

He didn't cover anything up!!! Stop listening to ESPN. When it was brought to his attention he went to the president of the school, inside and outside counsel, and hired a private investigator. Counsel recommended that they do not fire Rice. The president agreed. They went with the rehab program and it worked!!! Rice has changed since then. If you want to say he made a major mistake by going with rehab over firing then fine I can understand but it's still not something he should be fired for. This is caving to ESPN because they were bored this week and are holding a grudge because we further dissolved the old BE and Pernetti was a leader amongst that.

This is such BS. He's the fall man. His resignation letter:


Dear Dr. Barchi:

I write in confirmation of our conversation earlier today during which we agreed that it was in the best interests of Rutgers University that I step down from my position as Director of Intercollegiate Athletics. I do so reluctantly because I always have and always will love Rutgers. I want to thank the people who have supported me throughout my years as a student-athlete and Athletic Director and help them understand my reasoning in this situation.




My continued tenure as Athletic Director is no longer sustainable for the University which I attended and where a piece of me will always remain. In connection with the incidents involving former basketball Coach Mike Rice, as was the case with all other matters which I handled on behalf of the University, I always tried my best to do what is right. I have spent a great deal of time reflecting on the events which led to today. As you know, my first instincts when I saw the videotape of Coach Rice's behavior was to fire him immediately. However, Rutgers decided to follow a process involving university lawyers, human resources professionals, and outside counsel. Following review of the independent investigative report, the consensus was that university policy would not justify dismissal. I have admitted my role in, and regret for, that decision, and wish that I had the opportunity to go back and override it for the sake of everyone involved.




I trust that my tenure at Rutgers will not be judged by this one incident. I am proud of my efforts to lead Rutgers into the Big Ten, and of all of the accomplishments of our student-athletes in the classroom and on the field of play. I want to thank our great fans, the hardest working staff in collegiate athletics, and every one of our fine student-athletes. It has been my great pleasure to serve my alma mater.



Sincerely,

Tim Pernetti

The princeton offense is all about ball movement, which I love, but I'm not sure how Eli can run it. Mack I think would do fine but Eli...idk. It's a lot of discipline and driving.

Wally, Jack and Randall down low using pick and roll and picks to set up backdoor screen will work, especially with poole

NE has quietly built up their defense. McCourty found a home at FS, Dennard is a good #2 CB, Logan is a solid CB in their system (they run a lot of Cover 2, Logan is perfect for that), they have solid LBs, and now their edge guys are good in Collins and Jones.

They need a 5 tech, but that defense is quietly good again. I expect them to be a pretty good defense this year.

I'm a skeptic of the Ryan pick. Granted I have seen very little tape of him so I will take your word for it but I am hearing conflicting things as to whether he is more adequate in zone or press, the latter was only one particular scouting report so not sure how accurate it is. I def have to catch up on some film.

I'll reserve judgement on this defense until the season, I'd expect it to be in the better half in the league but I wouldn't jump to saying they'd be top ten. no coverage LBs, hole at SS, and injury prone DBs.

Logan is fine as long as you got that safety to play over him. You guys run a ton of Cover 2, and you feel comfortable stopping the run with 7 in the box bc of the muscle you have up front. It's a Bill Parcells staple that Belli believes in as well.

Logan Ryan is a good player, and in your scheme, he's perfectly fine. It's a good pick. And youll love him as a tackler.

I personally think he's better in press but I know I've seen a lot of people say the opposite. You're going to like him and you got a steal in the 3rd. Great tackler, can blitz, good ball skills, good hips.

So does Marcus Cooper have a have shot to develop into something down the road? From the little tape I see, it seems that way but its hard to evaluate him based on how he was use. He was in that 'bail-out' off coverage where he's facing the opposite sideline, looking directly inton the backfield, 10 yards off the ball alot. I hate that mess. Cant really judge him in that technique.

No names that really stand out at the moment, but we're a young team. This season should be interesting to say the least.

Yeah it looks like the big name NJ talent is leaving. I thought we had a really good shot at Quenton Nelson (top 50 national prospect) but he got his ND offer and it appears he'll be going there most likely. It's early and we'll still do well but going into the B1G I thought we'd see a slight uptick. Damien Prince from Maryland (OL top 50 national prospect) is who we need. We're currently the favorite it seems but we need to reel him in.

Jamal Merrell! He looked like an NFL LB to me and he'll rise up the boards.

I like the Rutgers guys we picked, obviously Harmon seems like a reach but he's the type of player we don't have at the safety position.

Logan Ryan is a great value pick and should stop crazy instances like Marquice Cole covering Anquan Boldin in the AFCCG.

And while I think Baueharnais has a tough time to make the 53 this year he could be stashed away on the practice squad and be nice depth at LB.

The Pats are quietly developing their defense again. I love Collins and Jones off the edge. Like your ILBs. You need a 5 tech and your front 7 is complete. And now with Dennard, Talib and Ryan you have good CBs for your system. If McCourty and Wilson pan out as your safeties, watch out.

I definitely think the tools are there and it is a young defense. Depending on whether they want to go with a 4 man front or a 3 man front they do need someone who could play the 5 and the 3. A big part of what is hurting is Wilfork playing 80%+ snaps at both nose and 3 technique. Belichick has done a really good job of retooling the front 7 in particular and they have pieces in the secondary to be good. I'm not expecting a top 5 defense but there is no reason why a big improvement on 25th in the league shouldn't happen

Any organization would have rolling heads for this terrible lack of accountability. Say what you want as a fan of the program, but any real organization would fire anyone involved in this fiasco.

We now have 2 glaring examples of the organization not doing the proper background checks during their hiring process. That's terrible management. As a person who's been involved in the hiring/firing process, I can't believe that an organization like this could be this irresponsible.

It's a joke and heads need to roll, regardless of how you feel about the program. It's poor management. Which isn't surprising honestly, anyone who ever attended Rutgers knows that they have poor management.

There's no agenda against Rutgers. Your homerism is just blinding you right now. This would happen to any program that was as careless as Rutgers has been over the past 18 months.

100% there is. Stuff much worse than this happens at other major universities and you don't hear a peep. Pitino was banging a co-ed not a peep. UNC has major major recruiting violations for the umpteenth time and not a peep. I can go on and on.

The SL owned by a Syracuse grad eats its own. ESPN also holding a grudge because TP turned down their Big East deal years ago.

Rutgers is always looked down upon unless you're an alum while at other states everyone has pride in their state university even if you didn't attend.

I am the furthest thing from a Rutgers homer and this agenda is real.

So as more and more facts come out it seems like the witchhunt/agenda is 100% real.

The supposed letter was not signed by anyone and not even delivered to the AD or Hermann.

The dumb lawsuit which was thrown out out has Hermann not even listed as a defendant. She was only a witness. Way to report the facts SL and ESPN.

What is SL by the way?

Also I 100% agree about an agenda here with ESPN. They keep running this crap on their ticker and pushing this story, despite no one really giving a **** about Rutgers.

No one really has any interest in this. Very unlike ESPN to push something like this rather than utilizing their airtime on some NFL or Miami Heat story beaten to death already.

ESPN does this all the time. I disagree with there being some overarching agenda from the media (in general that is, ESPN barely counts at the media to me though). This made news on a variety of outlets. I first read about it on USA Today. That's pretty big news.

The story with Rice was completely legitimate. He was doing things no one should do to student athletes.

Still, it's a story because Rutgers is a state institution. They're not a private school. They should be held accountable. What she was accused of pretty messed up, regardless of time elapsed since it occurred.

It's also a story because of the ineptitude to be able to hire someone without checking them out. They're a public official. They are being put in the spotlight. No, nobody is perfect, but plenty of people keep their nose clean of scandals. If you're Rutgers, you don't think maybe after you had a huge incident with a coach that maybe you should hire someone with out some fairly serious incidents in their past?

I haven't really posted anything because I figure you would just say, "OMG UCONN FAN!!!" but you really are being pretty biased on this, Zak. Not with the whole ESPN thing, because I do agree to an extent, but you're sort of generalizing and straight up skewing other incidents. Petino story was a big deal at the time. It's of course faded since then because of time passing and the fact he's won. I hate him though. He's a douche bag. I would have fired him on the spot but in sports winning often trumps everything else.

And you ARE a Rutgers homer. And that is perfectly okay. Most people are homers. I am for the Giants/Mets/Knicks/etc. It's just how much and to what to degree of homerism. You're not that bad (compared to Scotty!).

I don't care that you're a UConn fan you can still comment. The problem with this story is that the SL keeps pushing things as fact when they're not. They report and 20% has been true. Rutgers needs to grow a set and tell everyone to F off. You let people attack you and they'll walk over your whole life.

I mean, that's just on Rutgers then. I think there is clearly some validity to the reports or why would Rutgers just bend over and accept this beating without fighting back? It makes zero sense. Clearly she has some issues in her past and Rutgers should have known better than to hire someone like this RIGHT AFTER a huge scandal involving player abuse.

Also, I thought I heard on WFAN Rutgers was having closed door talks without her there (apparently in the past she'd been included). Doesn't that indicate something?
