The Headline -- Rutgers worked up quite an appetite in its Thanksgiving morning practice, and now enjoys the holiday with family, friends and teammates.
Flood released players and coaches to celebrate the holiday before the return to Piscataway tomorrow for the bus trip to Maryland.
Whether at a teammate’s house or with Flood in New Brunswick, everyone has somewhere to go.
“I had the assistant coaches check back in with everybody to make sure everybody’s got somewhere to go,” Flood said. “Whether it’s just a couple or many, any way it works out is fine by me. The players will go home with other players [as well].”
“[Waters] did some stuff today,” Flood said. “But Andre and Jacobs are taking the bulk of the work in practice right now. I think they look good. Both of those guys have played for us in limited roles, and this week could have a bigger role. They are both very reliable guys, very hard-working, detail-oriented guys. It’s exciting for us to have them out there.”
Quote of the Day -- “It’s a lot of good memories of coaching practices on Thanksgiving. I don’t know that I’ve ever coached a game on Thanksgiving, but a lot of practices over the years for sure. That’s been a lot of fun. I got a lot of great texts from former players.” – Flood on relationship between Thanksgiving and football.
On the Other Side -- Rutgers has had three six-year seniors of its own in Mason Robinson, Edmond Laryea and Brian Duffy. Maryland honors one of its own in quarterback C.J. Brown, who put it all in perspective in an interview with Scout’s UMD affiliate.
