Found: Miami’s Defense circa 2001
Location: Piscataway, NJ
When Rutgers picked up Greg Schiano from Miami, everyone wondered if he would really would be able to turn the football team around. After all, this was a team that was mostly terrible, a perenial loser throughout the 1990s. And, in all honesty, had been struggling for years even before that.
So with their 20-10 win over Pittsburgh on the strength of some great defense and their running game, there’s no need to wonder anymore. This team is for real.
Louisville is looking vulnerable right now. West Virginia is still a monster, but as long as Rutgers doesn’t overlook anyone, there’s a chance they could steal a win that no one expects them to get. If they do, it will be very interesting to see just where they end up at the end of the season.
Keep choppin’ Rutgers!
