Rutgers: The New Oregon

For the last couple of years, the University of Oregon has set the college football world on its ears with its different combinations of uniforms. You name the shade of green, the Ducks use it. This year Oklahoma State got into the act with a bunch of different uniforms. Now Rutgers seems to be getting into it. With the Army game on Saturday, Rutgers is set to wear their six different uniform in nine games. On Saturday, Scarlet Knights are set to introduce a white helmet with an American flag logo Rutgers logo on it

Here is the break down:
  • North Carolina Central State: All red 
  • Ohio: red jersey/white pants/red helmets
  • Syracuse white jerseys/red pants/red helmets
  • Pitt: All black 
  • Navy: red jerseys/white pants/red helmets
  • Louisville: white shirts/black pants/black helmets.
  • West Virginia: all black
  • USF: all red 
  • Army: white helmets with an American flag "R"
So far the different uniform combinations have been fine, I just hope that the Nike and the school continue to tasteful when it comes to the uniform design.

Professional Tailgating: The Return of Chas

For the last five games, Rutgers sophomore quarterback Chas Dodd has been nowhere to be found, but on Saturday night he came in and saved the day. Dodd led Rutgers to a 20-17 come from behind overtime win over South Florida. The OTWT Tailgating Crew was there to take in the sights and sounds.

No burgers and dogs for us, fried chicken was the call.
 The fried chicken was really tasty
 I think one of my goals in life is to have a condiment stand named after me.
 Midway through the second quarter everyone started check their phones to see what was going on with the 'Bama/LSU game
Fans got what they wanted Chas Dodd
