We can and will compete next year.


Recently, a lot of RU fans have been real down on our chances to be competitive next year in the B1G. And I am sorry, I just don't see it that way. Do we have challenges? Of course like every team does (new coaches, dealing with graduating player, etc) , but if you have been following this team for a while, you understand that there is talent on this team. The defense was strong a year ago, but we lost our secondary to the NFL and our DC. The smart move would be to see if we can get Robb Smith back after TB's coaching staff get fired and see if he can get us back to playing Rutgers defense. The QB situation needs to be worked out but it seems that Nova's constant flame outs have given way to letting the younger kids (Rankin and Laviano) have a real shot.Also, the B1G has plenty of name recognition, but outside of Ohio State and Mich ST. Did anyone really wow you last year? Penn St struggled, Michigan looked really bad, Nebraska wasn't dominating, and Maryland isn't any better than us on paper. All that to say 7 or 8 wins is not out of the realm of possibility. Lastly,recruits leaving is disheartening, but does it really affect us for next year? How many were really going to come in and contribute right away? Have faith in your team people, we will be fine. Go RU!!!!!
