Spring Big Ten Preview #14 – Rutgers

LAST SEASON – A disaster. Not too strong a word for it, either, as the Eddie Jordan era ending with a serious thud. The Scarlet Knights went 7-25 overall and just 1-17 in the league. Only 2 of those conference losses were by single digits, so they weren’t just beaten regularly, they were blown out. […]

BTT Preview Wednesday Games

Minnesota¬†vs. Illinois – For as bad as the Illini have been, hard to see them losing to a Minnesota team which has been stripped of most of its guards over the last few weeks. I suppose Murphy and King give the Gophers a chance if they’re operating with maximum motors and Illinois comes out sluggishly, […]

Rutgers Thoughts

– What can you say about Bryn? I’ve been lucky enough to see a lot of great, great shooters at Michigan State but this guy has gone to a level beyond anyone, at least in terms of an individual season. 11 3s in a game? My God. – MSU got better enough in the second […]

Early Rutgers Thoughts

– Rutgers is working on a special season, and by that I mean an absolute tire fire. They are 0-16. I believe the last time the conference saw a winless team in league play was Northwestern in 99-00. Before that you have to go back to NU in 1990-91. So this is a rare level […]

Rutgers Belongs In The B1G

Rutgers fits as a great public school. Their average SAT is above IU Bloomington, and their ranking is practically the same as a national undergraduate school. Like IU, graduate programs are spotty from department to department. They fit academically. Now, Rutgers has a love/hate relationship with athletics. Although they hosted the first college football match, […]

Fall Big Ten Preview #14 – Rutgers

From this spring, when I also picked the Scarlet Knights to finish last… https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/23/big-ten-spring-preview-15-16-14-rutgers-pt-i/ https://spartanbreakdown.wordpress.com/2015/04/23/spring-big-ten-preview-14-rutgers-pt-ii/ WHAT’S NEW? Rutgers added two more players after the spring preview was completed, and both seem likely to play a rotation role. 6’7″ JUCO forward Deshawn Freeman came on board in late April. He averaged 19.2 ppg and better than […]

Spring Big Ten Preview #14 Rutgers Pt II

NEWCOMERS Corey Sanders is the headline maker in this group, and is seen as a legitimate impact player. The 6’2″ Floridian is a point guard and should be given the ball immediately for this team, assuming much the same responsibilties as Mack had a season ago…run the offense but also get your own shots. He’s […]

Big Ten Spring Preview 15-16 #14 – Rutgers Pt I

There are still a handful of decisions out there to be made…IU’s guards have to decide whether to turn pro or not, Dylan Ennis is still a possibility for Illinois, Minnesota is still recruiting a cast of thousands from the JUCO and transfer ranks to fill a couple of spots, etc. However, with Russell deciding […]
