This Rutgers team came here to beat us. Signs of Eastern Michigan here...

I'm not typically a pull-the-QB guy but 5/9 for 68 against Rutgers?!? And about 30 of that 68 was on Navarro coming back to pick up a badly under thrown ball between the DB's arms.

We're about to be down 14-10 to Rutgers at half.

What’s troubling is if they score here, they also get the ball back at next half. We could see us playing from behind!! 😮

Jake needs to do more than just punch at the ball. There’s a lot more to the game than that kid.

Our defense is totally dependent on turnovers. Rutgers doesn't look like it's taking any risks at all. Simple ground and pound.

Edit: I'm excited and all, but our coaches are out coached regularly. Not a good game plan and play calling so far.

What has often gotten lost in the conversation is that beating a ranked opponent is significant but an equally important component of turning the corner is no longer doing this. You just can't let this Rutgers team come into your house and roll you. Just. Can't.
