If Not for You Guys, Another Bye Week Would Be Fine

Well, much as Monday for most of us presents the grim realities of our returns to school, work and unfortunately the Booger McFarland-Joe Tessitore duo on MNF, it also gets the ball rolling toward Rutgers' third game of the season.

Boston College is in Piscataway for a noon kickoff. We're only a 7.5-point underdog. Not bad for a team that still can't pass for 50+ yards...in a game.

As always let's try and meet at the lot no later than 9 a.m. The forecast is glorious -- 80 and sunny.

Food-wise, let's get the discussion going.

I'll throw out a few Boston-themed ideas, namely the Kelly's Roast Beef (https://www.eater.com/2015/9/4/9239371/kellys-roast-beef-sandwich-massachusetts) or sirloin tips sandwich (popular at Fenway Park).

Otherwise, if folks is feelin' fancy, and someone has time to make clam chowder or lobster rolls for 20, have at it, LOL.

Either way, let's get the discussion rolling and hopefully give good vibes to RU football for win #2!

A win to start the RU football season!!!!

This is what happens when we let an outsider direct our group photo!

This RU dog talks
and what a potty mouth!!!
 The BrepNation.com crew descended on the Auxiliary Black parking lot to say goodbye to summer and say hello to the start of the 2019 RU football season. Newcomers Gene and Sue from the Witkowski clan brought their talking dog to enliven the tailgate festivities. Gene had recently completed a duck hunt and need a change of clothes to be fully BREPPED Up for Rutgers football.

Discussions of fantasy football overtook the tailgate between Holobowski and Labues alike with the entrance of the BREP2019 team into the reformed Art Vandelay Memorial Fantasy Football league.

Vote for your favorite Big head  !!!!







It was good to see all the big heads out in full force but it occurred to the editorial staff after taking the group picture that Shane had covered his face with LO-REZ BRES.  Also, please note these faces could be placed on pillows, blankets, mugs, etc. to make great holiday gift ideas!
The Dana brick is still there!!!






Kudos to Bill for picking up the great subs and all who brought stuff to make the tailate fun. As usual the group brought out its typical sass and hijinx before we packed up for our trip inside. On the way, Dana took a large portion of the group in to see his brick. We were also horrified to see that the Audi Club is no more!


As usual Eric was able to make it into the club and provide the group with ice cream during the game. Audi Club Eric is no more, so we asking for new names for our thrill seeking club crasher as Provident Bank Club Eric doesn't sound right.

The natives were restless as the game got off to a rocky start until the offense cranked it up in the second quarter with 31 unanswered points on its way to a 48-21 over UMass behind 4 touchdowns from Isaih Pacheco (no relation to the late fight doctor Ferdie Pacheco.)

We have a few weeks off to the next home game on September 21 at noon versus Boston College. See you then!
