Rutgers needs to go to a bowl game
Posted 11/30/2013 8:12:00 PM

     Rutgers fans---Get past all the knee-jerk reactionary feelings following Saturday's fifth loss in six games, the 28-17 defeat at UConn.  Refrain from saying that you hope the 5-6 Scarlet Knights lose at home to USF next Saturday in the season finale, thus failing to become bowl eligible.  Put your anger and frustration aside and focus on what's really important...and that's the fact that this young RU football team NEEDS to go to a bowl game to get an extra month of practice in...not for the bowl game itself but for the major task at hand of getting ready to move into the Big Ten next season.  If you believe that experience is something that will help cure the ills of this embattled program, then the Scarlet Knights need the extra coaching and repetitions that a bowl game would provide.  So, forget about today and focus on the future, which is looming large.
