Keep Calm and Remember 2004

September 4, 2004 was one of the more enjoyable days I've spent at Rutgers Stadium, especially as I was in a visitors' section next to the cannon in which the majority of fans were chanting "Go Green" and "Go White" at each other and expecting an easy victory.
Rutgers and Michigan State are currently 3-3 against each other lifetime. There's no reason this Saturday's rubber game should be a surprise if it goes to the Scarlet Knights. We have beaten top ten teams in R House before, and we can do it again.

Let's hear more "Upstream Red Teams" than "Rock Chalk Jayhawks" on Saturday...

Rutgers football players have never met the Kansas Jayhawks on a gridiron before this Saturday, so it's not only time to go one and oh this week, it's time to go one and oh lifetime against another new opponent.

I don't want to say anything negative against my beloved Scarlet Knights' 2015 season on this page, so I'll just say, Keep Calm and Chop Kansas:

See you all at Rutgers Stadium on Saturday at noon.

I Jumped the Gun...

When Carli Lloyd scored at the three-minute mark of the Women's World Cup Final tonight, I tweeted that she was the best football player to ever come from Rutgers.
I don't know what to add to that after she scored again at 5 minutes and 15 minutes. I don't know what to say about her now  except to confirm her place as the most important athlete to have played at Rutgers. What I don't understand is why her fellow Scarlet Knight Alexi Lalas is not even mentioning her Rutgers connection in the halftime discussion or in the postgame recap going on now.

Not to be judgmental, but...

... how rich and/or idiotic does a person need to be to pay an extra $2,500 to $3,500 for a parking space closer to Rutgers Stadium? That's significantly more than my yearly tuition when I was on the banks (and riding my bike to games).
I'll be back in the RAC parking lot in September.

Finally, an improvement to Rutgers' transportation system...

I can't decide whether to take the zipline or the unicycle between the RAC parking lot and the Stadium for the first game of the season:
