    Beauharnais said the exact same thing...only he predicted a “Natty”

    Any movement needs both short term and long term goals.

    I originally believed 7 years is a better timeframe for Indianapolis though , not 5. What do you think ?

    If we don't go to a New Year's Day bowl next year and the playoff in 2 years Greg should be fired!

    Let’s win a conference game first . I think it took until year 3 last time for GS to get a conference win. The talent is bad here. It won’t be easy

    Bold words from Hilliman who only spent one year here. Hope he’s right.

    It's not about whether we can do it or not.

    It's that Greg convinced him we can be great in such a short period time. Great motivator and recruiter. He's got the hype. He's got the love of HS coaches. He's good with the student athletes.

    Greg is going to recruit the hell out of these kids and bring us back to being respectable or even better.

    And because of that, we may very well compete against the best.

    It's a process: 1) Let's first get to a competitive BIG level, 2) then compete with BIG elite, 3) win BIG and compete for a Natty

    Obviously. The only way we could be in the Big Ten Championship game is to win the B1G East first.

    100% agree Zappaa, These guys must be so much fun at a tailgate. I like Hillimans optimism, its better to shoot for the stars and fall short than shoot for just okay! Schiano is on a mission even more so than his first stint here. #GORU #ScarletPride #JerseyStrong

    Once? Once? What is this "once" of which you speak?

    We're going to beat them all like rented mules starting 2020 and for the foreseeable future. It will be they (them? they'all? thems guys?) who will fear being kicked out of the Big Ten.

    I'll never forget 2014, when RU had Pedd St on the ropes all day still leading with only a couple of minutes to go. In the endzone Pedd St fans sat without a peep.When they pullrd it out of their ass, some d-bag yells"Same old Rutgers". When he saw a couple of huge Rutgers men coming his way to kick his ass, he ran like the pantie sniffer he was.Heart breaking loss, but that moment made me proud to be Rutgers fan and have 2 sons get their degrees from there!!!!

    Greg laid it out today again. The Chop. You take that first swing, then the next, etc. You focus on that next swing. You're not looking past that next chop towards the opening.

    The goal next season should be 6 wins and a bowl game. I wouldn't call the cupboard bare this time around. I am happy for the players.

    I definitely agree with the long term and short term goal sentiment.

    Long term is to win it all.

    Short term is to chop that wood right in front of you.

    And enjoy the process.
