I just went on the Rutgers football site, to see if there were final comments about Eastern. Sure enough there is a four minute discussion with sports writers from New Jersey that gave Eastern no credit at all for their win, but at the end of the discussion claimed that in no way was Eastern better than Rutgers. What hubris.... just Big Ten superiority of course.

Let's all go log in and mock them! 03-lmfao

What happened was very simple. They thought they'd bully us on both the OLine and DLine. Our OLine didn't do much for our ground game, but they at least didn't give up 5 or 6 sacks. Our DLine took them on straight up, and beat them physically across the board. We weren't doing any crazy blitzes or stunts or anything of that sort. Just played our base defense and beat their as*es!

I think we should offer them a home and home deal.

Keep a good thing going.

He should have been embarrassed. Not because he lost to EMU but because his team played like sh!t.

Indeed. His team did not play well.

I watched some excellent football games yesterday and EMU/Rutgers was not in that category.

We'll take a win which, in part, because of the lack of offense seemed somewhat ugly. But winning ugly with a very good defense is fine.

That said, I watched the Toledo/Tulsa game and that was great to watch. Very entertaining.

I don't see it as a big deal. If I was a coach at a P5 school, I would be embarrassed if I lost to a MAC team too. Their players SHOULD be bigger, faster, and stronger than ours, but they weren't. It's more of an indictment on the state of the football program at Rutgers than anything else.

We played like crap on offense and still beat a P5 team...I can't stop thinking about that. I'm sure all of us remember a time where, if we played poorly in even one facet of the game, we would get blown out. We've come a long way under Creighton, and everyone should be incredibly proud of the Rutgers win. On the same note, I can completely understand the Rutgers fans/players/coaches being embarrassed about the loss. It would be the same if we lost to an FCS school...we should expect better.

Agreed, for the most part. I think entertainment is in the eye of the beholder. A 54-51 game probably would irritate me, since it's evident that both defenses played poorly.

Our 16-13 game absolutely featured some offensive incompetence, but we made some impressive plays defensively. It's easy to point out Harris's sack or Hoying's INT, but I remember a play where Rutgers threw an out route on 3rd and short, and Juan Giraldo came out of nowhere to blow up the receiver as soon as he caught it to force a punt. Our defense played with swagger and confidence for most of the game, and considering how rarely that happened in the past, I was VERY entertained.
