Welcome to episode no. 103 of the On The Banks podcast. With Rutgers kicking off of its 2021 campaign on Thursday night against Temple, this is our first game week preview episode of the season. To get you ready for the action, we brought in beat writers that cover both programs.
Sam Cohn is a reporter for the Philly Inquirer and OwlScoop.com on the Rivals and Yahoo! Sports network, while Chris Iseman is a reporter for the USA Today Network - New Jersey.
Topics discussed for Temple include the roster changes made in the offseason, Georgia transfer QB D’Wan Mathis making his first career start for the Owls, the experience back along the offensive line, season expectations, the unknowns heading into this matchup, whether playing Rutgers is a big deal for the team and fans, as well as Cohn’s expectations for Rod Carey’s third season on the job.
Topics discussed for Rutgers include observations from training camp, the two deep, depth concerns this season, Greg Schiano’s demeanor heading into the first game, and Iseman’s prediction for how this season will play out for the Scarlet Knights.
Also, I ran through the benefit of having so many quality podcasts currently out there for Rutgers fans as the athletic department potentially enters a golden age for years to come.
Thanks to Sam and Chris for giving great insight ahead of Thursday’s season opener between Temple and Rutgers.
And thanks for listening once again!
