Remember that time when Rutgers expected to go 10-2? Well, our most hated rival is at it again.
In honor of #RivalryWeek, here are a few particularly delusional comments from various Rutgers message boards, blogs, facebook threads, and forums that I copy-and-pasted for your viewing pleasure. (No, I don't care to link to any of them. If you care that much, go look them up for yourself.)
I think Rutgers, coming home, will be angry and motivated to show the Big Ten that they are no easy task.
All I can think of, though, is the last time Big Blue came to Piscataway. It was also a prime time game. And, guess what, we won that game for our first Big Ten victory and first Big Ten field rush at home.
Michigan isn't Ohio State. I don't expect a shutout.
GOD I FUCKIN HATE HARBAUGH. STAY OUT OF JERSEY YOU FUCKIN PRICK #FENCETHEGARDEN
Is anyone honestly expecting us to win this game? Count me in. Fuck Michigan
We beat Michigan once, we can do it again. I have faith in Coach Ash. Rutgers 45, Michigan 13
If there is one game, ONE GAME on the schedule we absolutely MUST WIN, it's this one. This game is our National Championship. Michigan is the worst p.o.s. program there ever was, we have to CRUSH them. They took Peppers and Gary, fuck those dickwads. I look for Coach Ash to shock the world with a HUGE UPSET.
I agree this game against Michigan is the most important game we may have ever played.
Guys where will you all be when the final score has us up 2TDs against Michigan?
Calling it. Gary gets ejected for targeting. Peppers tears his ACL in the first quarter. Poetic Justice.
If at any point the fuckin broadcast cuts to Partridge I swear to god I might punch the couch
Game Week against Paramus Catholic West. We got this.
once we win this game people will be talking about how coach ash is building something special in piscataway. huge signatures win!
If we break the shutout, as far as I'm concerned that's as good as a W. Michigan wants to shut us out, and if we score we will have proven they are worse than Ohio State.
Will someone tell me what time the game starts? I want to DVR this game so I can rewatch it 100 times when we upset Michigan
I don't care what anyone says this game is more important than Penn State or Maryland. Michigan is now my least favorite B1G team. I want to beat them sooooo bad
To any of those Rutgers fans who said they'd take Harbaugh over Ash, fuck you
I'm not even worried about TTFP game bc we will be favored after we beat Michigan
OSU made us angry, all that aggression now goes to Harbaugh. Get ready jackass, your stupid #4 ranked team is about to lose BIG
Hey guys Michigan fans think we should leave the B1G. I'm sure they'll feel even stronger about that after we beat them
Sooooo pumped for this game. #NationalChampionship
Why are you comparing this to the national championship?
[reply]Because it is.
Michigan is sooooo overrated. imo they were better last year. this year they are B+ at best
I don't care if we lose every other game as long as we beat harbaugh and partridge I can be happy
It's rivalry week. #BeatRutgers
