|11/12/2018 - 11:03am||My job moved me to Jersey…||
My job moved me to Jersey many years ago. I lived here for 10 years before I realized that Rutgers is the state university of New Jersey, and I began to think of it as Jersey State. It's not that much of a stretch. It's a public, state school. It has three campuses. The main campus in New Brunswick would remind you of lots of campuses in the midwest - it's not nearly as urban an you might suspect. There are about 35K undergrads. There's a law school. There's a med school.
Athletics is another thing altogether. College football is not a thing on the East coast like it is everywhere else and it shows. The stadium is half the size of the Big House and, not surprisingly, the facilities are half as good. The stadium is not on the main campus. If you drive, park at the Rutgers Athletic Center (it's the basketball arena; they call it "the RAC") and take the free shuttle bus. You'll find lots of Michigan tailgates going on there.
I've been to all three games at Jersey State. Even in 2014, after that horrible, embarrassing effort, the giddy rutger fans made fun of us, but they weren't total jerks about it. In 2016, a big, linebacker-sized rutger fan sitting behind us gave a Michigan fan a big bro-hug when his team finally made a first down in the middle of the 2nd half. This year, lots of rutger fans came dressed as empty seats for the cold, windy dreaded 345p November kickoff.

In the section where I was, it was the other way around. A big, linebacker-sized rutger fan gave a big bro hug to one of the many Michigan fans sitting all around him. We all cheered. We'll be there again on Saturday.

I think we got to them, boys and girls. The Revenge Tour is having the desired effect.

Onward to Piscataway
From Black Shoe Diaries:
Fuck that piece of shit scummy asshole Hairball. Fuck him so hard. Challenging that catch was the weakest shit I’ve seen all season. He can go to hell.
Franklin would have done the same thing
I'm sorry, but that is a load of shit.
If you are referencing the GSU game, there are very few similarities. GSU had ALL of their starters in, trying to score against like our third string defense. They attempted a bush league FG instead of just trying to go for it.
Harbaugh was running play action passes late in the game and then had EVERY SINGLE starter in on defense, even though we had mostly back up skill guys in. GMAFB. He called a timeout on fourth down and ran a 6 man blitz, up 42, under 3 minutes to play. That is classless.
Yes he would have.
And we’d have rolled our eyes and moved on.
Barkley TD pass late in the 4th
I oddly enjoy your fury
Got very drunk during the game
and very high after. I now realize my comment was too intense. I hate losing though! Regardless, it’s just football. I keep my "fuck Harbaugh" because it’s fun to hate rival coaches but undo the other insults to him.
Not too intense.
Sounds like some of the thoughts I’ve had were I to speak them.
Right there with you.
I also cannot really agree with those people who say something to the effect of "Franklin would have done the same thing". For me, there is a crucial distinction between,e.g., continuing to try to score touchdowns, challenge big calls to maintain a shutout, or even call a timeout to ice a kicker. Those are all things one might do, although I might not necessarily, if you want to teach your team to play a hard every down.
Where I part ways, however, is with the ceaseless taunting on the part of the Michigan players, from the consistent "aping" of Barkley’s celebration (always with his teammates, mind you) to Winovich’s imitation of McSorely’s home-run swing (even though he was not on the field for that play). To me, that speaks to a cultural disrespect for the opponents — further evidence for which can be seen with how Bush behaved last week at MSU, among other things — and it does not surprise me at all that Harbaugh would instill such values in his team. Let alone the entire fanbase, who are somehow so petty to prepare to taunt other schools by engaging en masse in their stadium chants. Trademark assholery all around.
For now, I take solace in the fact that Michigan is a team laden with veterans, even having to go get a grad transfer QB from elsewhere. Meanwhile, Penn State is very young and on the rise. Let’s see how things look for these "fighters" next year…
