Meh. I grew up in Columbus but moved to NJ when I entered HS. No one that I knew was a Rutgers fan. Most were Penn State, Syracuse, or Notre Dame fans, if anything because the NY/NJ area is more of a Pro sports region (Yanks/Mets, Giants/Jets, Knicks/Nets, Devils Rangers).  Rutgers is a total afterthought (unless you or a family member attended). 

I currently live in Lancaster PA, and the only reason I am looking forward to Rutgers and Maryland Joining the B1G is because I'll be able to take my kids to Buckeye games more often!  Otherwise, I don't like the addition. 

Go Bucks!

I just hope he doesn't go to the steelers. Seems they always grab a Buckeye in the draft.

That's why our secondary always looks confused. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but Matt Millen was right during the Orange Bowl when he said, "this is a tentative defense".  A tentative defense allows the offense to dictate the flow of the game. They wait and respond rather than impose before the ball is snapped. Opposing OCs can call  almost anything and have it be effective.  They're dictating the game. 

Really nice write up!  I wish I understood football this well!

In addition to comments above, the Orange Bowl is played on a weekday after a holiday where folks have already traveled and are working again. The bowl system and networks have spread the bowls out so that each can be aired in prime time, and as a result, they make it difficult for fans to attend. 

Good riddance BCS.

The NFL is a fickle bi+<#, and as such, I will only subscribe to JFF as a pro QB when he proves it on the field. Sorry DJ.
