Game Preview

I don’t care that Rutgers hasn’t played a difficult schedule so far. I don’t care what anyone outside of our fan base thinks about the season long prospects of this team. I just want this team to keep grinding and win the games they should. Tonight against North Texas is a game that Rutgers needs to control from the opening tip and dominate. This is the type of team that the longer you allow them to stay in the game, the more confidence they will get. Don’t let them hang around. It’s Thanksgiving eve and there are plenty of distractions for sure. The maturity and focus of this team will be highlighted, good or bad, tonight. Take care of business and let us eat our turkey on the high of being 5-0! Let’s do this! Join us in the comments during the game to discuss the action! RU rah rah!
