ESPN Analyst Picks Rutgers In The Cellar Of The Big East?

Published on August 5, 2009 by     

large_kordell804ESPN Analyst picks Rutgers to be in the cellar of the Big East right next to UCONN, wow what a big slap in the face.

Remember the media voters were ESPN writers who made this poll!

Never pay attention to these idiots because the same was said about last years team, and when they were 0-5 they were probably saying told you so, Lol!

the most surprising part of the poll was Rutgers placing fifth and not receiving a single first-place vote while four other teams did. Not only do the Scarlet Knights return their entire offensive line and a good chunk of their defense, they have the easiest schedule in the league. Several prognosticators have picked the Scarlet Knights to win the Big East, but apparently none of the 24 media members who voted in the poll agreed.

Unlike UConn, however, Rutgers’ players professed to neither know nor care about the preseason ranking. Coach Greg Schiano dismissed the notion of preseason polls.

“I’m not going to say I didn’t look at it,” Schiano said. “I looked at it. But it’s all preseason. Come to me in November.”

He said he didn’t plan to use it as a motivational tactic. But when asked if he would mention it to the players, Schiano said, “Our kids are pretty media-savvy. They’ll know it. I won’t have to say a word.”

Rutgers cornerback Devin McCourty on playing football for the first time without his twin brother Jason, who is with the Tennessee Titans.

“I went the first week of preseason camp last year without even getting a snap. I started fifth on the depth chart. It’s a long way from that to being on the Davey O’Brien Watch List.”

Rutgers coach Greg Schiano said that running back Kordell Young will be limited at the start of preseason camp because of an issue with his surgically-repaired right knee.Schiano also said that running back Jourdan Brooks, who suffered a knee injury during spring practice, has been cleared for full contact.

Rutgers true freshman Mohammed Sanu, who made an impression in the spring at safety, will open at wide receiver.
