RU IN? Saturday, Oct. 22, Noon

You can't spell R-U-I-N without Rutgers and Indiana. 

The loser of this game is looking at an even more ruined season, with Rutgers having 2 weeks to stew over a miserable loss to Nebraska and still trying to get its first B1G home win since 2017 and firmly in the cellar of the East division at 0-3.

Remember to wear red
Yet our Scarlet Knights could turn the tables with a homecoming win this Saturday at noon vs. Indiana, which has lost 3 in a row and is 3-4 overall and 1-3 in the B1G. 

It's likely that fans of both teams, especially Indiana's, are looking forward to men's basketball season.

Yet we still have 6 games left to make something happen On The Banks.

R U IN for this Saturday's tailgate, around 845-9 a.m. in the usual spot? 

Let's do a roll call in the comments and thoughts on cuisine. 

The early kickoff makes breakfast the logical choice but it's a democracy.

Forecast looks stellar: sunny and high of 68 (probably chilly morning).


  1. Happy to do homefries and if no one else offers some kind of egg dish

  2. Breakfast sounds great. It will be me, Sharon, Adam & Julia, and 8:45am works. I have something going on Friday so can't commit to making something but will pick up a box of joe and donuts from Dunkin, and will bring all the accessories including milks, sweeteners, cups, etc.

  3. I will not be attending the tailgate. I hope to get to the game.

  4. Hi--breakfast sounds good. We can make a batch of scrambled eggs ahead to be heated up on the grill; but Bill, let me know if you were already planning an egg dish and we can think of something else. Thx.

  5. And Bill, very clever with the "RUIN"!! Also your post summarizing the last tailgate was very good. Thanks for taking the time to write such nice and humorous posts for the group.

  6. I'll bring a dozen bagels, as well as some beer.

  7. Sounds good, all.

    Andrea, thanks for the eggs offer, will take you up on it.

    I'll do homefries and some pork roll, maybe bacon (plan to precook, reheat).

    As of Thursday a.m.:
    Pete: Donuts & Coffee
    A&E: Eggs
    Bill: Potatoes, meats
    Tom: Bagels (cream cheese, butter too?)

    1. Kathy with me, BTW; so I won't have a spare ticket

  8. Dana and I are bringing a coffee cake.
