I can't upvote this enough.

I coach HS Bowling, and had to miss the first half of the game. It's about the kids. The Game is a great rivalry, but in the end it is a spectator event. Not nearly as important as my (expected) participation in real life.

Probably a couple of reasons. Some have been covered above, like talent/recruiting. It might also have to do with the fact that the RPO'/Spread/WC/Air Raid offenses involve speedy players in space, and the plays help to create and utilize mismatches based on numbers advantages.

It might also have to do with the offensive scheme that TTUN runs as well. Their defense doesn't really see a lot of spread offense in daily practice because Jimmy prefers his TE's and FB's - more like smashmouth football.

I agree that this is a pretty big blow. The center is responsible for calling out all of the blocking assignments at the line. Against LJ's DL, this may not end well for the kitties ...

A couple of good/funny sports movies not mentioned: Balls of Fury, White Men Can't Jump, Tin Cup, Mr. 3000, Necessary Roughness, and my personal favorite - Kingpin.

Best fast food/fast casual food is Portillo's Italian Beef Sandwiches.

Dr. Pepper FTW

Most underrated player: Evan Spencer

I think there's a real possibility we hold Rutgers under 150 total yards. I'll say ~100 yards passing, most of it in the 3rd/4th quarter.

OSU covers: 70+ to 7. MVP is Harrison w/3 sacks.

People have already mentioned Kirk and Hardemon. So I'll add some new ones:
I wonder if we would hate Kyle Kalis if he hadn't committed to TTUN in 2012? Kid was a good player out of St. Ed's in Lakewood. The whole interim coach thing kind of scared him north, though.
Jordan Hicks in 2010.
Tommy Kramer and Liam Eichenberg in 2016 would have been good offensive line additions.
Richard LeCounte III - imagine him and Wade in the same class.
