    Let’s come up with 50 reasons to look forward to the season.

    I’ll start:

    1) Attending a game with my kids in section 107 and watching them catch home made cookies from the lady who tosses them out after we score a TD!

    You are in my section. I'm in row 41, on the end close to section 106.
    Funny story- was flying to Arizona and there are a group of people, a couple with RU gear, and the cookie lady was among them. It took me a while to realize it was her, and as we were boarding, I said "aren't you the cookie lady?" and the group burst out laughing.

    5) Having our son join us as a Rutgers student at our seats in section 107!!

    6. Hoping for some exciting wins and to convince my rising senior HS daughter that Rutgers is a great option for her instead of Maryland.

    8. Lousy football is better than no football. Hopefully RU is at least mediocre this season or else #3 in this thread may be needed.

    9. The opportunity to watch a crack law enforcement agency in action as they make the world safe from hardened criminals bearing weaponized red Solo cups.

    @Knight Shift - we're in 106 / 12, so I'll have to wave as we make the walk down the steps.

    12. Tipping point season. We either turn program around by winning Or we get a new coach at end of season. Either way, we have a reason to be optimistic.

    Are you Kyle Flood? His son? Wife? Multiple posts now by you blaming everything on Ash without mentioning that Elmer Fudd is the one who destroyed what Greg built.

    Similar story... was on a cruise (I think to Bermuda) standing in the buffet line and I meet the Twizzler guy whose in my section 128 who tosses them after every TD. Needless to say, he didn’t do much tossing last year.

    There were a lot of people tossing their cookies in the stadium last season, but not the kind you want to eat!

    16) No guarantees of course, but they could win one or two. That would be such fun!

    As I heard a gambler say once, the next best thing to winning is losing.

    19) watching the RB group develop further. I think this group is the most talented since Rice and Leonard. Would like to see Blacksheer in the flat more often.
