When the Rutgers offensive line took the field against Washington in the season, no one expected the unit to have a good game, considering the clout and reputation of the Huskies' defensive line.The Knights far exceeded expectations, though, as the they did not give up a sack and blocked for 131 rushing yards.At that point, it looked like offensive line coach AJ Blazek had drastically turned things around from last year, when the line struggled early and often.But the success from that first game did not continue against Eastern Michigan, as Rutgers quarterback Kyle Bolin was constantly under pressure, leading to a lackluster offensive performance and a 16-13 loss.Bolin took full responsibility for his play last Saturday, but it is clear the bad performance was not all on him."(Kyle Bolin) wants to play better," said head coach Chris Ash. "As coaches we've got to help him do that and the pieces around him have got to help him do that, too.
"You just have to learn from the film and come back to work tomorrow," Dorian Miller said. "I know the guys will be ready to do that.
On my way to the game, I trailed a car with both "Rutgers Mom" and "Howard Mom" stickers on the back.Seeing Howard's name before a fixture that had many similarities to last year's game against Howard — in both matchup and timing — seemed like a premonition. An interception and 71-yard return by Brody Hoying of Eastern Michigan sealed whatever signal that was with two and a half minutes to go in the fourth quarter.By that point, the Rutgers football team would have welcomed an outcome like that of last season.In what could possibly go down as one of the worst losses since head coach Chris Ash took over last year, the Scarlet Knights were silenced by Eastern Michigan to the tune of 16-13."Disappointed in the outcome of the game," head coach Chris Ash said.

The Rutgers football team chipped away at its year-to-year deficit in the Washington fixture last week, scraping off 19 points from the 2016 season opener.To begin 2017, the team fended off the Huskies for much of the first half only for the visitors at High Point Solutions Stadium to take control and put the the home side behind.The scoreline came to a halt at 30-14 in favor of Washington.
Two more final notes of importance: Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. marks the return of the Chris Ash Radio Show live from the Quaker Steak & Lube in Edison, NJ.
Of the positives to take away from its week one loss to No. 8 Washington, the Rutgers football team has its running backs.There are four of them — graduate transfer Gus Edwards, senior Robert Martin, freshman Raheem Blackshear and senior Josh Hicks — and three saw playing time in the Scarlet Knights' 30-14 defeat against the Huskies at High Point Solutions Stadium.It is a depth not afforded to most positions across the board for the Rutgers coaching staff, which has been a point of attention for head coach Chris Ash.“If you look at that position group right now today, with the addition of Gus, in my opinion the improved Rob Martin, adding Blackshear in there and then you’ve got Josh Hicks, we’ve got a pretty good group in there," Ash said.Against a backfield which offensive coordinator Jerry Kill deemed the best the Knights would face all season, Edwards, Martin and Blackshear outran Washington's running back core volume-wise.

The Rutgers football team will open up its season tonight against No. 8 Washington. The game will officially kick off the 2017 campaign, one crucial to the team's rebuild led by second-year head coach Chris Ash.With that being said, it is time to do a game-by-game prediction of the season. Game 1: Rutgers vs No. 8 WashingtonRutgers is much better than a year ago, while Washington has lost a lot of talent on the defensive side of the ball.
However much head coach Chris Ash would like to deflect sentimentality from the proceedings Friday, there is no question that the season opener for any college football team holds its own weight independent from context.Ash's first ever game at the helm of the Rutgers football team took place almost 3,000 miles away in Seattle.
For starters, John Ross is gone.The wide receiver who torched the Rutgers defense in last season’s 48-13 opener in Seattle with 183 total yards is too busy preparing for his first NFL season to revisit a matchup he so relished a year ago.In other news, virtually everyone else from the Washington offense returns to a second consecutive season opener against the Rutgers football team.
Q: The defense has lost a lot of starters, especially in the secondary.
When teams have prepared to play Rutgers every week since 2013, there is always the same name circled as a priority of who to keep the ball away from. That name is Janarion Grant, a senior wide receiver and kick returner who after missing the last 7 games of last year with an achilles injury, is at full health and as hungry as ever to get back on the field."It's been too long," he said after practice on Monday. "I love this game.
For the Rutgers football team, it was the first game week practice of the 2017 season, with the Scarlet Knights preparing for a Friday night matchup with No. 8 Washington.Head coach Chris Ash was as loud and intense as he has been all year on Monday afternoon, a sign of the increased importance of each practice.The most important position heading into the contest will be quarterback, where Kyle Bolin heads into his second week as the starter.
With the season opener for the Rutgers football team just days away, the time has come to preview the Scarlet Knights' first opponent, No. 8 Washington.Washington is coming off of a very successful 2016 season in which the Huskies went 12-2, won the Pac-12 Championship and made the College Football Playoff as the No. 4 team in the nation.
