Look like a big time program.... Insane atmosphere and winning over Penn State during a prime time game... New rivalry... All thanks to RutgersAls relentless pursuit.

UCONN and it's fan base are capable of the same "big time look" if it gets selected to the big time. We had a big time look vs Michigan last year.....and we beat RU last year, you know when Casey beat the weak teams.

Lmao. Rutgers was born on 3rd and thought they hit a triple.

They have a good environment for their first game in the Big against a top ten historical and regional program!?!

Shocking!

Nova is still their QB and they are still Rutgers. Give it time. Though it doesn't hurt to join the B1g in an obvious down year.

Better they develop fast. If they are good I think that helps our chances. I hate to think it but maybe some excitement around BC would help us too.

They were competitive. And they had a wonderfully great crowd ... and I'm sure my friends had fun. But, I think they are a very fickle fanbase & Program.

How dare you post any positivity about RU on a Uconn board.

All programs have idiot fans....and they can't control what the fans do. What I can't believe is that they posted some of this crap on the offical Rutgers facebook page.

JaYnCe should be here any second to defend Rutgers' honor and scold us about our behavior.

You're surprised? It's Rutgers.

I was there, heartbreaking loss.

But no way there were 10k PSU fans. Maybe 6k at most. For all of their talk of taking over our stands they sure didn't do it.

Now, can we get to next year and have our transfer from LSU play QB? Please?????

How could fans allow such flags fly in the tailgate area. If that happened at UConn I would have found a way to have it removed.

Unacceptable.

I don't know. I never saw it. It was in the lot right next to the stadium so unless if you were in that lot you wouldn't see it as you'd never go in there to get to the stadium.

Schools have idiots fans, yours included. Penn State is an easy target, so I would reckon that there is no way that kind of stuff has only been isolated to us.

Now, on the big time atmosphere. I think you guys can get there, but it's hard. Your stadium isn't set up to look or feel big (never been there with a packed house so I don't know about sound), and being off campus certainly doesn't help. Opponents help too. You have a good OOC home schedule this year but with teams that probably won't be sending a couple thousand your way. And then you guys have to hold up your side of the bargain as fans. But for that the team has to hold up its end of the bargain as well.

Probably should think about going to a spread option offense.

Rutgers hit the geographic lottery. We waxed them last year with our worst team in 15 years.

They are getting paid. But they're still Rutgers. And will continue to suck.

Yeah, I know CHB, but we feel like we're a million miles away from that right now. I have to admit I feel good for the Rutties. I'm jealous, but I do feel good for them.
