Didn't take Rutgers long to score... 16 seconds into the game, the Scarlet Knights score on a 78 yard TD pass.

Seattle is a fantastic place to live - I am not a fan of WSU but I do like their Pirate Coach

I loved Seattle.  Visited out there when I was back in High School.  Always thought if I couldn't live in Southeast Ohio.. Seattle area would be my choice.

The Browns are scheduled to play the NFC West next year. If patterns hold up, they should be traveling to Seattle. If that is the case, I may take my first west coast trip since 1998.

Sounds like a plan - If memory serves - the last time we played Seattle I think we won 9-6 in a field goal battle. Pretty Pathetic game IMO 

703Buckeye's picture

I looked up the last 4 Seahawks/Browns tilts...

2011: SEA 3 @ CLE 6
2007: SEA 30 @ CLE 33 (OT)
2003: CLE 7 @ SEA 34
2001: SEA 9 @ CLE 6

Cleveland has only been to Seattle once this millennium, in 2003. The 2001 matchup was Seattle's last year in the AFC.

I may just take you up on that one day, Linga.   I've always wanted to ride the bike back out there, through Olympic National Park and along the coast.  Just gorgeous.  Easy to see why so many west-coasters love nature the way they do.

I'd rain deal with the rain in the NW than the snow off Lake Erie. Year after year got a little too much. No extreme heat or humidity to speak of in the summertime.

And a turnover as WSU just turned the ball over on a pass

Very quiet in that stadium.

Century Link is the loudest stadium in the NFL however Wazzu playing there won't have a ton of people nor the crazy fans that the Hawks have primarily because Wazzu is on the other side of the state.

703Buckeye's picture

It's loud at times but the Wazzu fans are very easily quieted.

Major stand by Rutgers after that bomb from Wazzu... as I type this, Nova does what Nova does best, throw a pick.

And you don't?

Dude's written books about badass pirates. His memoir is called "Swing Your Sword." And he indirectly gave birth to the "Craig James Killed Five Hookers" meme. And, again, freaking pirates, bro.

What's not to love?

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

The Cougars screw up a golden opportunity after getting the ball in the redzone. I must say I am impressed with the Rutgers D thus far; beside that 52 yard pass, they have done a great job of stopping the air-raid.

Am I the only one annoyed by the battling uniforms between two teams trying to look like Ohio State?

703Buckeye's picture

I understand what you're saying but I'd only say Rutgers is trying to look like the OSU alt uni's from last years game against scUM.

Not really seeing it. Unless you want the teams to change their school colors that happen to be similar to OSU, but that is about the only resemblance.

Rutgers isn't happy about all the mean things you said about them.

Weak Sauce. You're a B1G team. You go for it on 4 & 1 against PAC team.

They tried but got too fancy trying to pull Wazzu offside.

Rutgers has been very inconsistent blocking against a weak WSU d-line. The Silver Bullet d-line is going to feast on the Scarlet Knight o-line.

Rutgers wont be a pushover in the Big Ten. They have some athletes and a pretty good quarterback.

Huge. HUGE win for them and the conference.

Is WSU projected to be good?

Ehh, they're dangerous any given game, but they wont be contenders. Last year they beat USC, Arizona, almost Auburn,were competitive with Oregon, and made a bowl game. Mike Leach always runs a dangerous offense.

As a transplanted Buckeye, I can't thank the OP enough for kicking off this thread with that pic. Ugh.

That said, RU, bad defense and all, went across the country as a dog and won. Good start for them and good win for the B1G.

703Buckeye's picture

You are most welcome for the pic. If I had to suffer through seeing that pic, I was going to share with everyone, haha.

Rutgers defense is actually a lot like the Buckeyes from last year. Great run defense and a terrible pass D. Nevertheless, it was impressive for them to go out west and get the win.

Great win for the BIG....and now 2-0 so far with Minesota win

Patriot4098's picture

At least they started with a quality OOC win (considering both teams talent level). I'll take it.

Their red zone D isnt bad, its the secondary they need some work on. Season will tell.  Good RBs and decent QB.

Go Bucks!
