Rutgers improves in odds to win Natty

+

I honestly don't know that much about sports betting, other than that the Vegas oddsmakers are the most accurate in terms of game scores.

Today, Bovada released new odds on Rutgers to win the national championship at 500:1. The previous odds released in late July had the Scarlet Knights at 1000:1, so that's something. By comparison, Cal was unchanged from its original 1000:1 odds from a month ago. Vegas has been clearly following Rutgers training camp.

On the Banks recently participated in a top 15 poll of the best players in the Big Ten. Many of our fellow SB Nation compatriots sent in their votes as well, so it's a good indication of where we all stand on quality of players.

Darius Hamilton is the lone Rutgers player who received votes, and comes in at 37th out of all 46 players mentioned.

Tiquan Underwood's high top is amazing

I think Scarlet Nation would agree with me if I said we're all pulling for his high top fade in the NFL. The former Knight will play for the Carolina Panthers this season.

Rutgers Scoop on Ray Rice

The former editor of On the Banks has set up a new tumblr for commentary on various Rutgers related topics. For his first installment, he tackles the Ray Rice saga.

For such a polarizing topic, it's a reasonable opinion and assessment on the situation, which ESPN's Stephen A. Smith decided to blow up a few days ago.

Nova/Friedgen similar to BoB/McGloin

This is a very interesting article, nevermind that it's coming from a Penn State writer. David Jones of Pennlive.com offers this apt comparison between two schools that look to have similar situations.

In Bill O'Brien's first year, he inherited Matt McGloin, a former walk-on QB who struggled with consistency. For 2014, new OC Ralph Friedgen will inherit struggling QB Gary Nova. If the same transformation is made with Nova, I think it's safe to say that the Fridge's first year will be a huge success.
