In Sagarin, IU is #54 and Rutgers is #145

Simply put, this game is a must win. And would be an absolutely inexcusable loss.

Wait, wait. Even their home site calls it Rutgers.

Rutgers University | The State University of New Jersey

That's kind of like calling Indiana Uniiversity, the "University of Indiana'" "   LOL

Winnable game.  Can't cast shade on them like that. 

Crimson Quarry a couple years ago started calling them Rutger, they needed to earn the  "s" back.  I think it's pretty funny, a buddy and I always call them Rutger now.  

I think DJ did it on purpose and it made me chuckle.

I guess I don't understand.  IIRC it is named after a Revolutionary War hero by the last name of Rutgers.

One of the many things I love about Hoosier Sports Nation, is the things I have learned over the years.  I did know that Rutgers is considered to be the birthplace of football. However, I did not know, till now the origin of the name.

To be honest I found this out about 30 years ago.  It wasn't from the net, it was from a guy who along with his family moved to my small little town.  They were from Jersey.  In the course of drinking beer and teaching him how to play euchre he talked a lot about his beloved Rutgers.  This is one of the little tid bits I paid attention to.

Did you tell him to call it up on left, 9, 10 and an off ace?

He never got the game.  Nobody wanted him as a partner after about a year.  And yes I did.  That off ace is usually good for one trick!  Suck trump out with the nine.  And count on your partner for one.
