It would correct to say that Rutgers is having a pretty awful season. But what makes everything better? Puppies, of course.
The New Jersey Advanced Media wrote a Rutgers report card from the Scarlet Knight’s loss to Michigan State, but a letter grade wasn’t the only thing it included. Every segment of the report card was accompanied by a photo of a puppy to help cheer Rutgers fans up.
The Scarlet Knights are a dismal 2-8 this season (0-7 in Big Ten play) after finishing last season 4-8 (1-7). But before the 2015 season, Rutgers went to four straight bowl games from 2011-2014, including back-to-back nine-win seasons in 2011 and 2012.
Greg Schiano, the former Scarlet Knights head coach and current Ohio State assistant, led Rutgers to one of those nine-win seasons, as well as the school’s second 11-win season in program history.
