Rutgers has UConn's number again

A few quick postgame quotes from here in the swamps of Jersey before we hit the highway...
  • Edsall seemed to be holding back in his press conference, evidenced by the fact that he repeated the phrase "I'll need to look at the film" over and over. Asked why he thought the offense, which moved the ball so well in the second quarter, seemed to be stuck in neutral for the second half he said, "I don't know what it was. We made some yards, but we weren't scoring. ... Some guys got overpowered in the run game."
  • "We just didn't get it done," Edsall said. "A couple of times I thought we might be able to get a run here or there. We just didn't finish, didn't finish a block."
  • Rutgers' offense moved the ball at will. The damage may have been worse had the Knights' scrapped the wildcat and gimmicky stuff and just let Chas Dodd run the offense. Edsall didn't think his defense was gassed at the end. "We had the ability to make some plays and if we could have just made them and we didn't. That's the bottom line."

How about putting some pressure on that kid? If we could have made some plays? God I can't stand listening to his nonsense anymore. It's a joke. What a sad performance from this team, against a woefully inferior opponent. Edsall outcoached again by Schiano.

Chip, I'm sick of hearing that we had the ability to make a play but we didn't. How about taking ownership of horrid play-calling. 4th down stop and you call 3 inside runs, seriously? Completely deflates the momentum of the team. Why did we stop blitzing in the 2nd half when it worked so well and it rattled Dodd in the first half?

Frustrating. But that's the mantra:

:the play-calling would have been fine if people executed."

"We could have made some plays, but we didn't."

"I could have won the lottery, but I didn't. If guys picked the right numbers, we would have won millions."

A teleconference with Edsall at 2 p.m. today. He's watched the film, so maybe he'll be more insightful. Or maybe he won't.
