Calling that bowl the Pizza Bowl is going to get confusing with the Little Caesars Pizza Pizza bowl coming soon.


Seriously, you are Rutgers, that's as far as you go. 8-4 and Pizza bowl

Rutgers gets off to a slow start every year... Schiano runs 'em too hard in training camp, and the players don't recover until a few weeks into the season. Recipe for a bad record every year (yes, 8-4 is BAD. Anything less than regular 10-win seasons and a permanent place in the top-15 is unacceptable. Anyone who disagrees is expecting way too little from this man).


Ah, how I pine for the days of 0-11, 1-11, 1-10, 2-9 and 3-8 records. And who can forget those glorious defeats of 62-0, 61-0, 55-0, 50-0, 49-0, 48-0, 42-0, 40-0, 50-3, 31-3, 30-5, 64-6, 80-7, 49-7, 47-7, 38-7, 36-7, 34-7, 42-13, 37-13, 70-14, 48-14, 45-14, 44-14, 41-14, 62-16, 53-17, 45-17, 59-19, 58-20, 56-21 and 54-21. Good times! Let's get rid of Schiano so that we can return to those wonderful days.


Thank God someone put it in perspective. I, too, shall happily take consistent 8-5 records and regular flirtations with the Top Twenty-Five, along with an occasional national championship run (as in 2006), over the laughingstock RU was for much of the last few decades. In the last three years, the Scarlet Knights have beaten not one but a pair of Top Five teams, had seven and nine-game winning streaks, put more than a dozen kids in the NFL and made the program respected nationally, despite occasional setbacks like the Cincinnati debacle (which I attended). You want a collection of gridiron gods? Root for USC, Texas or Florida. If, on the other hand, you'd like to share in the ups and downs, the triumphs and tragedies, of a real football team—one on a journey towards greatness—stick with Greg Schiano and Rutgers.
