Jags as OC: Season 2, Rutgers

Another week, another 41 point explosion. Jags dialed up the right plays again as BC got off to a very hot start and crushed Rutgers in week 2.

Stat Line
First downs 27
Rushed-yards 51-268
Passing yards 218
Sacked-yards lost 0-0
Return yards 51
Passes 17-30-2
Punts 3-45.7
Fumbles-lost 0-0
Penalties-yards 6-35
Time of possession 33:30

What can we learn from the game? Not much. Remember this was during Rutgers dark ages. Scoring 41 on them was no big deal. The offensive mix was very similar to many of the previous Jags games. Mutryn played well but it was not in line with the type of numbers we’ll expect from Ryan this year. Cloud remained the key player. He continued to dominate every time he touched the ball. I know we don’t have a Cloud-like guy in the backfield but we do have one or two explosive players. I hope the lesson of his first go around is that Jags will get the ball to our difference makers.

Things would continue rolling, yet the W-L record would begin to sour.

as an aside- I was at this game and I vaguely remember a sophomore Mike McMahon QB'ing that game, supposedly the next big thing.

The hype leading up to this particular Rutgers game was that RU wanted to avenge the 4TDs that Cloud ran in on them at Rutgers Stadium the year before. Guess it didn't happen.
