Keys to the Buffalo Game
The 2002 Buffalo game was quite possibly the worst display of football I've ever seen. Offense, defense, and special teams all broke down terribly. Blown assignments. Stupid decisions. Lack of discipline. Lack of mental toughness. The list of bad plays would make you cry. Yet, after getting whacked consecutively by Villanova and Buffalo (Buffanova no more), Rutgers somehow managed to play competitively against Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, and Miami. Rutgers was not nearly as bad as they appeared against Buffalo. Rutgers simply wasn't ready to play after the loss to Villanova dashed any hopes they had for the season. Rutgers now has a chance for redemption. A new team. A new season. A team more united than ever before, especially on offense where the Father Knows Best saga was cancelled after an unsuccessful two-year run. Rutgers needs to pummel Buffalo. Schiano needs to send recruits a clear message that his program has turned the corner. Here are my five keys to the Buffalo game.
