I’m fired up.

I think this defense is going to be insane. I can’t help but get 2006 vibes where the guys are going to play as a UNIT. All hats to the ball.

At a work conference this weekend and all I hear is Michigan, Ohio State, Georgia, Michigan State, Alabama, blah blah blah. Proud to be the lone Rutgers guy.

We’ve got our Head Coach guys, and he’s not going to sleep until we see on field success.

I don’t need 14-0, but Schiano is going to make some noise. Might not be this year, it might not be next, but I’m so proud to have Greg lead this ball club. Let’s gear up for the year and be ready to raise some hell.

CHOP!

Fun little story :

We had a motivational speaker that spoke with the entire team today. He spoke about a lot of things like fear and overcoming uncomfortable situations. He was truly a good speaker.

With that said, all I could think about was keep choppin. The fact that all these people would go out into their field using this guys wise words, and yet I had an advantage.

All I think about is chop. It’s an unstoppable mindset that I carry out in every day life. It’s more than a football thing.

Good luck to the coaches and players this season. Go kick some ass, and thank you for representing New Jersey.

I'm thinking 2003. Team was competitive in most games, but not quite ready for prime time yet. In 2003, only 3 blowouts(losses by 21+). Only 2 in for 2004. I think 2004 would have been better if not for the injuries and tragedies. Yea Yea New Hampshire.

The 2022 team is better than those teams, but the competition is better. Hence, I'm not too optimistic about the record. I just want to see some movement on offense against P5 opponents in addition to Indiana and competitive games.

Is "virii" really the plural form? I hope so. Would probably eclipse "thesauri" as #2 on my favorite plural list.

Love the optimism, but we truly have no clue about capability of this team at this point in the season. In today's press conference, Schiano said that he wanted the team to go out an have fun or something like that. Sounds like the same thing he said before we lost to Wake Forest in the bowl. I'm hoping for an upset, but realistically, it will be an upset if we beat BC. Let's not forget that when we gather on this board IF we lose the game. Let's hope for the best, and keep choppin'!

Yep. We were 4-2 after the Temple game, not world beaters, but I think we would have squeezed out at least another victory if that accident hadn't happened. But it did, and not only did it cast a pall over the team and coaching staff, we also lost 3 DB's for the season.

Are you sure this years schedule is tougher than 2003? can Tech, Miami and WVU were great teams during those years. We played Michigan St OOC. Other teams we played were all pretty solid. I think I agree with you but not by much. That was a tough schedule and we had a solid up and coming team.

Up for debate...Viruses, viri, and vira all possible. Virrii is incorrect but badass.
