Rutgers vs WVU: 2007 Recap and Stats October 27, 2007

Rutgers basically got destroyed today, it was madness.  100% taken to school and back.  It was painful to watch because I knew if Rutgers completed just 2 or 3 key plays, they might have at least been 31-14 rather than 31-3.

The stadium wasn’t packed today because of several reasons, it’s an early day game, it was raining, and…well it was raining.  Personally, I was attending my Saturday class.  Don’t ask me why I have class senior year on a Saturday, there are too many reasons.  I’m already knee deep in 18 credits, no quitting now.

WVU Steve Slaton and Rutgers Ray Rice

Anyway, Ray Rice ran pretty hard making 142 yards against No. 6 West Virginia and became the first player in Rutgers history to rush for at least 1,000 yards in three seasons.  In addition, Jeremy Ito made the 70th field goal of his career and became one of the 19 players in NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision history to record 70 field goals.  Mike Teel actually played very well with lots of rather accurate passes despite a bad thumb.  However, WVU running back Steve Slaton and quarterback Pat White were practically unstoppable as they racked up the points and took Rutgers to school.  A lot of things went wrong.  Rutgers committed four turnovers, the tackling was shit, receivers dropped too many to count, Slaton made people look like they were standing still, it was raining, and the RU uniforms were the wrong color.  Yeah, that’s right…the uniforms were black instead of the usual red at home games.  It all added up to WVU defeating Rutgers for the 13th time in a row.

Coach Greg Schiano’s comments on this game:

“It is very obvious the things we did not do today. We did not tackle the way should and we did not catch the football. We dropped too many passes, and some of them were touchdown passes. We dropped three touchdown passes. Are they tough catches; some of them are; but they are catches we need to make. Tackling just wasn’t Rutgers-like today.  Certainly the two guys we were trying to tackle had something to do with that, those are as good athletes as there are in the country, but a lot of things went wrong today. At no point did I feel our football team gave in. It was me at the end starting to take guys out because we weren’t going to win the game and we have a long season ahead of us but there wasn’t an ounce of letdown in those guys. It just didn’t seem like anything could get done for us, whether it was we get down there inside the red zone after you force them to a three and out, and you get a holding penalty on fourth and one. You can’t do that against good football teams. We hold them once and they punt and the ball hits us in the back. Sometimes things happen, and unfortunately it snowballed on us today. The positives for the game were that not one player stopped playing their very hardest. That’s how we want to play when things are going against us.”

West Virginia definitely has a football team that is Top 5 quality.  When you’re facing an opponent like that, you can’t afford to make all these mistakes.  USF was tough but honestly not on the level of West Virginia.  Mike Teel said, “the thing about football is how good are you on that given day for that three or four hours.”  Rutgers still has a long way to go.

 

Rutgers vs USF: 2007 Recap and Stats October 21, 2007

Rutgers vs USF rushing the field pic

I rushed the field for the second time since I entered Rutgers…and it was a rather dramatic moment as Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” blared from the stadium speakers.  Rutgers did it again.  For the second time in recent Rutgers history, a top team was beaten on a Thursday night to a record setting crowd.  The first time it was 44, 111 in the crowd for then No. 3 Louisville Cardinals, this time it was 44, 267 in the crowd for No. 2 University of South Florida Bulls.  Was it as surprising as last year?  No.  It was still a fun game to watch.

Ray Rice produced 181 yards on 39 carries and Tiquan Underwood helped out with five catches for 115 yards and two touchdowns.  It looked like Rutgers vs USF would turn out like the Maryland or Cincinnati games, and that actually led to some bandwagoners and poor fans leaving the game at half-time.  However, some Jedi mind trick shit was pulled in this game by Coach Schiano and the players.

“We don’t do a lot of that around here, we try to stick to the nuts and bolts but when there’s an opportunity we try to take advantage.” – Greg Schiano

First, there was a clutch trick play that still amazes me because Rutgers doesn’t do this kind of stuff.  Jeremy Ito faked a punt and threw a 36 yard pass to James Townsend and that set up a field goal.  Second, holder Andrew DePaola threw a key third quarter touchdown pass on an apparent field goal attempt to Kevin Brock that gave Rutgers a 27-17 lead.  Third, Jeremy Ito kicked a 51-yarder in the fourth quarter that provided the three point differential and sealed the Bulls’ fate.  Lastly, the defense sacked Bulls quarterback Matt Grothe seven times for 60 yards in losses, and USF’s last effort was also intercepted by the defense.  Everything just came together so well to make an exciting game.

Still…there were lots of mistakes on both sides.  This game basically resembled the 2007 college football season: somewhat sloppy, strange, and unpredictable.  I think Zemek on Fox Sports says it best so I’ll quote him.

Thursday night’s “Rumble on the Raritan” is hard to assess because Rutgers’ last Thursday night conquest — a come-from-behind classic against Louisville in 2006 — represented a transcendent sports event. When the Scarlet Knights stormed the No. 3 Cardinals last November — and Rutgers students stormed the field after another win over a top 10 team — the moment possessed a soaring and epic quality befitting an occasion that endures forever in the public memory. When Rutgers’ roster of Rudys pulled off the palace coup against a high-flying bunch of Redbirds 11 months ago, the nation stood spellbound in the face of the magic woven by Schiano, Brian Leonard, and the rest of a team that put Rutgers football on the map. It provided the state of New Jersey with one of its all-time great sports moments.

This year’s Thursday football feast became a joyride for Rutgers, but against South Florida, the Scarlet Knights didn’t display the excellence they brought against Louisville last season. The same Thursday celebration erupted on the same field, led by the same jubilant head coach and the same ecstatic student body, but the way Rutgers gained the winner’s circle was markedly different from last year’s comeback against Brian Brohm, Bobby Petrino, and Co.

Against Louisville in 2006, Rutgers didn’t make a single misstep in the second half. Against South Florida, the Scarlet Knights muffed a punt, fumbled the ball with just over four minutes left in regulation, and took a delay of game penalty on a punt with 1:41 left in their own red zone. Instead of keeping South Florida’s defense off balance with occasional play action passes, Rutgers’ offense went into a shell, trying to drain clock midway through the fourth quarter in an apparent attempt to play not to lose.

Three turnovers, a blocked field goal, an extremely shaky passing game, and the inability of Ray Rice to do anything in the red zone produced a Rutgers effort that, against better teams, would have led to a third home loss for the Scarlet Knights. But South Florida — far from the No. 2 team in the country — wasn’t good enough to take advantage. This contest was ultimately decided by the Bulls’ inability to punish Rutgers for its boatload of miscues.

So I agree with most of what I quoted, this year’s Rutgers team isn’t as good as last year’s because of all the young players.  We’ll see on Saturday though if Rutgers has improved their game when they take on West Virginia.

 

Breaking News: 2009 Nissan GT-R undisguised (PICS) October 16, 2007

2009 Nissan GT-R Undisguised Front Shot

The 2009 Nissan GT-R has finally been caught undisguised after a cover shot for the December issue of Motor Trend was leaked.  According to MT, the GT-R has a 0-60 time of approximately 3.5 seconds, an 11.7 second quarter mile, a 192 mph top speed, and a base MSRP below $80, 000.  The competition for this car includes the Corvette Z06 and Porsche 911 Turbo.  Based on some tests, the GT-R has matched these cars and has set some stunning times at the Nurburgring as well as Laguna Seca.  In addition, Nissan testers set their sights on the Porsche Carrera GT after beating the 911 Turbo around the Nurburgring track.

Official specifications have yet to be announced but power is expected to come from a 3.8 liter twin-turbo V6 that produces approximately 450 to 480hp.  The GT-R drives all four wheels through a rear-mounted transaxle and a dual clutch six-speed transmission.

People had doubts about the Nissan GT-R.  Some thought it was too heavy and wouldn’t handle well, some thought it would be too expensive for a Nissan, and some thought that there was no way it could match or crush a Z06 or 911 Turbo.  This car looks stunning, already has shown incredible performance, great price, and it doesn’t matter if it’s a Nissan or an Infiniti.  It could be called the “Shitty GT-R” and still dazzle people.

The Victoria’s Secret 2007 Fantasy Bra is 100% BALLER. October 12, 2007

Victoria’s Secret 2007 Fantasy Bra Selita Ebanks

Every year Victoria’s Secret releases a new version of this excessive and lavishly designed bra.  This year they’re going for a much more Christmas white, red, and green look.  It’s not just a bra, it comes in a full gift set this year with thong, garter, cuff bracelet, and matching barrette.  They’re just missing a crown or a tiara…oh well maybe next year.

It’s designed by jeweler Mouawad and there’s 4.5 million dollars worth of diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and apparently yellow sapphires that I can’t see embroidered into the bra.  Oh yeah, and there’s some soft padding now so that the diamonds and wires don’t cut into breasts UNLIKE last year’s bra pictured below.

Victoria’s Secret 2006 Fantasy Bra Karolina Kurkova

How baller is this thing?  Well Selita Ebanks who models it this year claims “I felt completely like a woman and so sexy…your confidence level immediately goes up.”  This is how I would feel if I had a Ferrari or an Aston Martin, and I was so baller that I would rip up money for fun.  I’d roll up in my piece knowing that I’m the shit, and I’d rev my engine excessively to anger people.  While doing that, I’d have my crew roll out a red carpet and sprinkle diamonds on it.  If anyone tried to speak to me, I’d snap my fingers and my bodyguard would be there ready to take people out with a diamond billy club.

So…yeah, I guess balling like that would come close to this fantasy bra and lingerie set.

Avril Lavigne cute sitting 

Avril Lavigne has this song called “Hot” on her third album The Best Damn Thing and the newly released video for it is pretty sweet.  I don’t care about her music really, just her looks.  She’s this burlesque dancer in her new video and it is damn hot…and if not hot, then at least cute.  Check it out.

Yeah you might have cringed when you saw the video and heard the lyrics to “Girlfriend” or you might have thought that it’s an interesting change from her previous music.  After getting married, Avril Lavigne has pretty much gone crazy, not like Britney Spears though.  In any case, this Canadian girl looks pretty good sometimes.  Extensive amount of pictures below…

Rutgers falls short against Cincinnati

Filed under: Cincinnati,College Football,Football,Rutgers — allyouneediscourage @ 12:20 am

Some quick thoughts on the Rutgers versus Cincinnati game…

WTF we had the opportunity tonight…  Mike Teel misread with precious time left and our narrow chances of winning was effectively crushed.  There were way too many interceptions in this game…and Ray Rice didn’t do a whole lot of running.  Rutgers had to win these games to show that we’re actually for real.  Our first 3 games were easy as shit.  Going 11-2 last year spoiled a lot of people.  Now Cincinnati is where we were last year with a “Cinderella story”.  I’m glad I didn’t go to the stadium this time because it was a collective soul crusher tonight.

If Rutgers can’t beat Cincinnati, how are they going to beat South Florida and West Virginia?  Those are the next two huge games coming up and chopping wood probably won’t cut it anymore.
