Thread: Rutgers with Jets-sized choke job

  1. #1

    Rutgers with Jets-sized choke job

    With BCS bid on the line, and Louisville playing with a crippled Bridgewater (on one leg and broken wrist), Rutgers proceeds to blow a 14-3 2nd half lead in epic fashion. 3 turnovers. Dropped TD pass. Fake FG TD called back for illegal man downfield. Letting Bridgewater slice them up even though completely immobile. Could not get off field on 3rd down. Dropped pass turns into INT

    On. and on. and on. and on. Sad sad day to be a Rutgers fan

    Is is appropriate to say i rather be a jets fan then a rutgers fan right now?

    win one of your last two games and you win the big east and go to a bcd bowl for the FIRST time ever.

    the birthplace of college football?

    Oh yeah, almost forgot, they could have wrapped it up last week by beating a 4-6 team instead they lost by 3 TDs. Awesome

    Rutgers' last offensive play of the game was certainly... offensive. Talk about a Jets-esque way to end a football game.

    Sanchez-esque miscommunication

    Don't know if you can call it karma as Louisville is leaving as well, for the ACC.

    It warms my heart to know that Rex, Sanchez and company aren't the only ones capable of ****-ups of this proportion. I came in late but jeez, that was really bad.

    For those who missed it:

    Rutgers had the ball with ~4m left with a tie game. QB makes a nice pass, but the WR makes an unnecessary dive for the ball, completely misses with his hands, knees the ball up into the air, and it's intercepted.

    Defense allows a field goal, 20-17 Louisville.

    Offense gets one first down, gets in the hurry up and the QB lofts one deep down field without a Rutgers receiver in sight. Looked almost like a punt return for the Louisville DB. Almost as bad as the butt-head play.

    Just got home from the game. I have season tickets for both Rutgers and the Jets. I never want to see another football game again.

    Two teams who surround their QBs with WRs that can't catch.

    Rutgers has choked away - what? - at least 3 BCS Bowl games in the past 6 years? Every year they seem to have it right there for the taking - and then they blow it.

    If they can't get there through the Big East, hard to imagine a likely scenario that will get there via the Big Ten.

    What a waste...

    And every time we lose because of dropped passes....

    Considering the level of play in the Big Ten, this may have been best chance for Rutgers to play in a BCS Bowl game for a long time.

    Definitely 2006 and this season were "win and in" scenarios in which they could not get it done. Some interesting paralells, 2006 West Virginia went without Pat White and Rutgers could not beat the backup QB, losing in double OT. This year, Bridgewater is playing on one leg, the backup is in for some snaps, and Rutgers cannot get it done. Big East has been pretty mediocre for a while, so I'm sure there were other opportunities as well.

    Blah, I hate football

    I couldn't believe it (actually I could) that last play was hilarious. Who the F*ck reads press coverage in a two minute offense?

    I hope your kidding. This year alone Rutgers would not be able to beat (in a down Big Ten year) Mich, Mich St, Nebraska, Northwestern, Ohio St, Wisconsin, and Penn St. The Big East is the biggest joke in college football and RU could have dominated that conference.
