It can be wearing on a team to be expected to lose every week, but gradually throughout this season, the Scarlet Knights has taken steps to amend this.
With two games remaining in the 2017 season, it is safe to say that Rutgers is not the worst team in their division.
It may be even worse to miss a bowl game by inches than to be miles away from one.
Last year finishing at 2-10, the Rutgers football team were clearly the latter, but this year, the Scarlet Knights, sitting at 4-6 with two games to go, are in danger of just missing a bowl game. That is, if they don't win out.
When Rutgers (2-0) returns to the Rutgers Athletic Center (RAC) Tuesday night to take on Cleveland State (0-1), it simply cannot rely on two players coming off the bench, especially with this game being the team's third in five days.
It has been said time and time again this season, but it bears repeating: this is not the same Rutgers football team from last year.
Rutgers (4-6, 3-4) lost to No. 14 Penn State (8-2, 5-2) by a score of 35-6 on Saturday, and though there wasn't much to love for Knights fans, there was more than last year.
Most Scarlet Knight fans will spend their Saturday searching for any note of hope, as Rutgers (4-5, 3-3) battles No. 14 Penn State (7-2, 4-2) at Beaver Stadium, Nov. 11 at noon. To Nittany Lion fans, it's just another game — a stabilizer for them after dropping two straight games to then-No. 6 Ohio State and then-No. 24 Michigan State, falling 12 spots from their perch at No. 2 two weeks back.
How much people are expecting out of the Rutgers men's basketball team could be answered within the first few weeks.
The Scarlet Knights collected an 80-78 victory over St. John's in a triumphant affair, overcoming an 11-point lead to win via a putback from sophomore forward Issa Thiam.
The Scarlet Knights (4-5, 3-3) only posted 107 yards in the air, but it was enough to upend the Maryland Terrapins (4-5, 3-3), 31-24, in a game that flipped back and forth throughout.
Both programs came into the Big Ten in 2014 with relatively successful seasons — Rutgers had its best campaign so far in the Big Ten with a Quick Lane Bowl win over North Carolina, and the Terrapins finished with their first and only winning record to date since joining the conference.Maryland makes sense as a rival if the Knights even have one.
Rutgers (3-5, 2-3) welcomes Maryland (4-4, 2-3) into High Point Solutions Stadium this Saturday at 3:30 p.m., and this time around, there is a unit advantage belonging to the Knights that could be strong enough to catapult them over the visiting Terrapins.
Rutgers will square off against St. John's on Sunday at the Rutgers Athletic Center in a game lauded by both sides as an opportunity to not only get warm before the season starts, but also support relief efforts in areas hurt by natural disasters these past few months.
When the Scarlet Knights (3-5, 2-3) fell to the Michigan Wolverines (6-2, 3-2) by a score of 35-14, it felt like a loss all the same.A loss is undoubtedly a loss, but this time around Rutgers at least has some positives to take away.
The Scarlet Knights (3-4, 2-2) will make the trip west to face off against a struggling Michigan (5-2, 2-2) side, losing out to No. 2 Penn State last week by a 29-point margin — its worst of the season.
For the first time since entering the Big Ten in 2014, the Scarlet Knights (3-4, 2-2) have strung together consecutive conference wins, earning a slow but earned 14-12 win over Purdue (3-4, 1-3) at High Point Solutions Stadium Saturday.
There was so much to like about the Rutgers football team last Saturday.It flew into Champaign, Illinois two weeks removed from a terrible loss to Ohio State and put 35 points on the board, enough to take down the Illini.
As a general rule in football, more is good.No team is going to complain about more touchdowns.
It is hard to argue that the bye week could have come at a better time for the Rutgers football team.All you have to do is look at Jawuan Harris.
Rutgers (2-4, 1-2) made the trip to Champaign to defeat Illinois (2-4, 0-3), 35-34, in what was its first Big Ten win since the 55-52 win over Indiana in 2015.
Fourteen days separate the Rutgers football team's last game from its next, and still the stench of a 56-0 loss to Ohio State at home wafts in and out of the Hale Center, as the team tosses over its options heading out of the bye week.
There was a point Saturday night — sometime after the first wave of students and spectators filed out and before the second wave — where the Rutgers football team strung together two passes. Both forward, both illegal. On the same play.The Scarlet Knights were down 35-0, three minutes removed from halftime, and it still may not have been the lowest valley for them.Instead, that may have come when kicker Andrew Harte, with less than a minute to go in the game, sent a 32-yard field goal straight into the left goalpost. There's a metaphor in there somewhere.
