- With a thin roster, could Mike Rice be looking toward playing a lot of zone this year?
- It looks like the 2013 matchup with Miami will be paired with two additional series games. Hooray for quality scheduling.
- Darnell Stapleton's prescription for fixing the Rutgers offense is more downhill running. Is there anyone in New Jersey who likes our faux-spread right now? Then again, most offensive linemen love to run block. Darnell is also critical of Savage for locking onto Mohamed Sanu. Sanu's the offense's best player, but there were other options available against UNC's depleted secondary.
- Tulane fought back over the weekend against injury-decimated Houston, but at the cost of devastating their QB depth chart.
- Not only did UConn pull Zach Frazer for Cody Endres on Saturday, now Frazer is demoted all the way down to third string. Time to queue up the Vader scream, because now UConn could actually be a good. Right when they've delivered maximal embarrassment to the Big East by losing to Temple.
- Brian Leonard is back for the Bengals, and didn't miss a beat as the world's greatest first down conversion expert.
- Kenny Britt and Jason McCourty came back to New Jersey on Sunday to beat the Giants. That was one of the worst Giants losses in a while, with New York marching up and down the field and immolating in the red zone. Nine times out of ten they win that game; it was far more painful than merely losing because you're not good enough. McCourty could miss a few weeks with a fractured forearm.
