To put it simply, last week was not pretty.Staying behind or drawn with a Mid-American Conference (MAC) team like Eastern Michigan for virtually the entire game — save six minutes in the third quarter — is not a good or even serviceable look for a team from the Big Ten.As expressed throughout the week time and time again, no team wants to be on the receiving end of an early-season upset, especially if that team has had trouble knocking doubters from within its own fanbase for quite some time.That would be the Rutgers football team.As the Scarlet Knights (0-2) get set for a Saturday afternoon (3:30 p.m.) battle against Morgan State (0-2) at High Point Solutions Stadium, few things remain abundantly clear.Chief among them is the fact that fluke or not, Rutgers needs to get better.
It's easy for the Rutgers football team to constantly replay its 16-13 loss to Eastern Michigan, as it marks one of the worst losses in recent history for the program.
It is difficult to measure a captain's value.There is an old adage that says it is hard to lead off the field if you cannot do it on the field.
Anyone who watched the train wreck that was the Rutgers offense in 2016 noticed a glaring lack of wider receivers.
Myles Nash seems to be doing it all.The fifth-year senior has slotted in both at tight end and on the defensive line through the first two games of the season, doing both in the same game against Eastern Michigan, the first time a Rutgers player has done that since 2013."Obviously just happy about the opportunity to play defense," Nash said.

After two losses their last time out, the Rutgers field hockey team’s schedule does not get any easier when they face two undefeated teams on the road.The No. 24 Scarlet Knights (4-2) wrap up the main portion of their out-of-conference schedule this weekend when they play at Cornell (4-0) and No. 3 Syracuse (7-0, 1-0 ACC) this weekend.The Knights are coming off of the humbling experience of suffering their first two losses of the season to Princeton and St.
This weekend, the Rutgers volleyball team will head to the Robert Morris Invitational in Moon Township, Pennsylvania where they will face off against the University of Pennsylvania, Middle Tennessee State, and the host Colonials.
A pair of undefeated teams will meet head-to-head at Yurcak Field this Sunday afternoon as the Rutgers women’s soccer team hosts Maryland in the Big Ten opener.The No. 13 Scarlet Knights (6-0-1), coming off a thrilling 0-0 draw against Georgetown last weekend, will have a full week of practice to get ready for the Terrapins (6-0-1).“What we do is look at (last) Sunday’s match and then we look at the things we did well and areas that we need to improve upon,” said head coach Mike O’Neill.
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.
