What a finish to Rutgers’ regular season last night. I went to bed and woke up still stunned by how close the game was and how much I wish that one or two things had just been a little different, that Rutgers was so close to making it in to a BCS game last night. It was an amazing season on the whole with just that final sour note of disappointment in last night’s loss.
Still, Rutgers makes it to its second consecutive bowl game in, well, forever. RU plays Kansas State in the Texas Bowl, which actually sounds like a very promising matchup. Despite their overall 7-5 record, Kansas State did knock off last year’s National Champions, Texas, then ranked number 4 in the country. Overall I’d be pretty content, except for the fact that the national TV broadcast will be on the NFL Network, which can be seen by…nobody.
