Pat Bryant's catch, wasn't there a Zook recruit named Pat Bryant too?

Rutgers lost?
Rutgers lost, which burns us. Maryland walks into Bowl eligibility at 6-6.

* A 5-7 Rutgers team has the tie-breaker over a 5-7 Illini team.
* A 5-7 Illini team would have had the tie-breaker over a 5-7 MD team.

5-7 teams aren’t determined by its breakers. they are determined by a stat called academic progress rate. Rutgers is ahead of Illinois, but Illinois is ahead of Maryland. So, Rutgers was ahead of Illinois regardless. Therefore, he really wanted Rutgers to win to keep Maryland behind us.

I'm pretty sure APR is what he was going by as the tiebreaker.

I'd be a little ticked if I was a backup qb. How much of a game out of reach for others to play?

Dinner time on the east coast. Thoroughly enjoyed this one! And really hoping that we sneak into a Bowl opportunity as the night progresses.

Coming totally clean --- I predicted this one as a loss. Glad to be wrong!
