  1. Harrison and Shaw making the champions list a complete sham. Neither should be starting, and probably not even playing. Not sure Shaw even watches the play most snaps because he is always going the wrong direction. Harrison is a complete non factor and has no clue how to set the edge.

  3. Rutgers proved once more why they were invited into the Big Ten, which was because we needed another perennial doormat on the schedule, and especially one from the east coast with no cultural or historical ties to the Big Ten. What a disgrace. May as well schedule a womens team and really pad the stats.

    Well, it’s sure to get more exciting at the end of October.

    1. Gee, all week TTUN was being praised for beating Rutgers 20 – 13. And Rutgers completely shut TTUN down in the second half. They didn’t look like a doormat then. Should we invite Vanderbilt?

  4. I really like Master Teague but really a champion ? Now I was going back and forth between our game and Cincinnati – Notre Dame so did I miss something.

    Zach Harrison did he even play this game or this season besides one play at Minnesota? I remember all the hype around him when he signed but he has been invisible.
