RE: Game Week: Rutgers
In his press conference, Rutgers coach Chris Ash publicly said he was worried by how his defense responded to tempo on offense against Washington.

Expect us to use it often. Time for Keen to show us his creativity in play calling.

RE: Game Week: Rutgers
I don't know what to think about this game. EMU's defensive line looked pretty capable, but I thought our secondary looked a little suspect even though Charlotte's quarterback didn't have great numbers. Our offensive line definitely didn't impress. I think we averaged 3.1 yards per carry against a very weak Charlotte defensive line. If Roback and our wide receivers show up big, we might give Rutgers a scare, but if our offense struggles to stay on the field this one could get ugly real quick.

Steve,

It looks like Kemp is listed at TE. Hopefully he's healthy and returns with a much needed contribution to the O.

Steve,

He was listed the same way last week and didn't even dress. Wouldn't count on anything from the TE position again. To have any chance we're gonna have to go 4 wide primarily, and Roback will have to play flawless with no turnovers.

They have an NFL caliber DE that we will have to account for with extra help, or Roback WILL be on the ground.

I've seen that Rutgers strength is their DL. EMU needs to work the quick, short passing game to neutralize that.

Yes, consider that Charlotte had two drives in our territory that they blew up themselves by having two 15 yard penalty called that killed both drives. Also we had one pass interference call that saved a TD when the ball hit the defender's helmet.

Our offense looks more suspect when you consider our defense gave them the ball 3 times.

I think this is EMU's best shot to end the long losing streak against the B10. Rutgers may be improved, but so is EMU over the past few years. Should be an entertaining game to watch.

RE: Game Week: Rutgers
It appears positional TEs had zero involvement in offense last week. Either they aren't showing their cards with a hidden stand-out in Bryce Kemp or H. Andrews or they've completely given up on this being a part of the offense -- probably the later.

So, Brogan should be slinging it again this week.

Things I'm hoping to see;

1. Good defensive play, if we lose, so be it. But, I better not see a performance like we had against Mizzou last year. If we keep it around 4 touchdowns I'd be happy. Even on the take-a-ways?

2. A sliver of hope from the Offensive line, no more than 3 sacks and 75+ yards rushing? Too much to ask?

3. Dieuly should have a breakout game.

RE: Game Week: Rutgers
Gentlemen,
Let's take a deep breath on the tight-end position. Yes, we lost Kilby, but we have only played one game. Using the tight-end as a receiver, whom ever it might be, may be just around the corner. I cannot believe that the coaching staff has totally forgotten about that position.
