How do you like me now?

     Rutgers junior quarterback Gary Nova was coming off poor performances in back-to-back losses...so poor that head coach Kyle Flood opened the door for a possible rotation with senior Chas Dodd, irate fans were calling for a qb change on the Internet message boards and the media was questioning his ability to lead the Scarlet Knights into the Big Ten next season.  But now, quoting the Toby Keith country hit, Nova is asking everyone, including Flood, "How do you like me now?"  That's because Nova snatched victory from the jaws of defeat Saturday afternoon when he hit sophomore wide out Leonte Carroo for a 33-yard game-winning touchdown pass on a fourth-and-ten with 35-seconds left, leading the Knights to a 23-20 victory over Temple Saturday afternoon that kept RU on the path to relevancy in the 2013 season.  Can the up-and-down Nova make it two straight solid performances on November 16th when the Scarlet play their next game at home against league opponent Cincinnati?  In the enigmatic career of Nova, that remains to be seen.  But, for now, the Don Bosco Prep product is back to being the "Big Man on Campus."

    What does this comment have to do with the "price of onions"?

    Steve Gregory (NE Patriot safety) is hurt. Rather than sign Ed Reed who cleared waivers, Belichick decided to stick with Duron Harmon as a replacement. Props to another RU grad who ESPN didn't even have a canned video package on draft night. NFL.com didn't even have a link either. Belichick is amazing.
