Grading the Rutgers game

Aug. 29, 2014 12:06 p.m. - Updated: 12:07 p.m.

Just like last season, each day following the Washington State game I'll be posting letter grades for each position unit based on my observations of how it did during the previous game. To answer an oft-asked question: No, I won't be grading the coaching staff. We're not privy to what's going on in the minds and headsets, and these grades are simply a reflection of what I can see playing out on the field.

So with that, the Rutgers position grades are after the jump.

If you woke up this morning thinking you were in some sort of reality TV version of “Groundhog Day,” don't fret. You aren't alone. Pretty much every Cougar fan in America feels the same way. Read on.

Sorry this is so late, but I just had to stay up watching the Cougs. … In happier news, here's my story on former WSU (and current Eastern Washington) wide receiver Blair Bomber. … In case you missed it, we had a lively live chat yesterday, and here is the transcript. … The Eagles host Montana Western on Saturday night, and here's all you need to know (until my own preview comes out tomorrow, of course!). …In the better-late-than-never category, here's a recap of MWU's win last week over Montana Tech. courtesy of the Dillon Tribune. … Husky receiver Kasen Williams says he's “ready to go” against Hawaii. …So is Christian Caple of the Tacoma News Tribune, who files this report from Honolulu. …Montana State isn't intimidated by FBS team Arkansas State, according to this story in the Bozeman Daiy Chronicle. That's a good thing, since four Big Sky teams got mauled last night. Cal Poly lost a relatively close one at New Mexico State, but Idaho State was whipped at Utah, Weber State was steamrolled at Arizona State, and North Dakota was routed at San Jose State.

Washington State overcame an early deficit to take a solid lead against Rutgers in Seattle yesterday, but was unable to sustain it, eventually falling 41-38.

Links from that game and from around the Pac-12 are after the jump.

Idaho’s Florida connection jazzed to go home again

What everyone else in college football calls “body bag games” are something entirely different to guys like Richard Montgomery and Jacob Sannon.

Of course, there isn't an underdog out there who thinks he's auditioning to be a victim.
