On the offensive side of the ball proabably not, but Im sure there are some teams in Texas, Florida or Georgia somewhere with some LB's, DE's, CB's and SS's that are just as big and just as fast if not more so than the ones on Rutgers. Only bench warmers from good football teams and the best players from sorry to middle of the road football teams go to Rutgers. RU is not a destintation for a blue chip prospect. Even the few blue chips that come from Jersey, NY and PA dont go there, they go down south or out west
That doesn't matter. Even 1-AA teams would beat down those great high school teams. And again, it wouldn't even be a competition. Put one of those teams against App State or UMass and it would be a joke.

You don't seem to grasp one thing: just because a team has one or two blue-chip athletes doesn't mean they can take on a team of division 1 college athletes. Football is the ultimate team sport...single players can dominate and carry a team in high school, but college is a whole different ball game. It doesn't matter that your tailback is the #1 prospect in the country (remember he's a prospect and that all the running backs that are already in college have been hardcore training and developed for a few extra years than him) when your offensive line is getting blown off the ball.

I laughed when that guy suggested Rutgers was even close to UGA in terms of a football team...but Rutgers isn't a low-tier college football team, it's definitely in the middle at this point (Schiano is a hell of a coach). You sound much, much worse btw.

This quote is what makes me think you have to be young...because you really have no clue.

I pray you're not out of high school yet, because if you are...

P.S. Rutgers currently has a commit from the #6 running back in the nation according to Rivals...he's from...*gasp* Cocoa, Florida!

Cool, the interstates in Augusta only go through the suburbs.... I-20 runs through West Augusta.... Interstate 520 runs through West Augusta, South Augusta, and East Augusta. Then you cross the state line and enter South Carolina... Where the interstate changes to I-520 Palmetto Pkwy in North Augusta...... Neither I-20 or I-520 run through downtown....

Ugh...

not getting through

listen, possibly those players will go ON to do great things, nobody is arguing that. But there is a HUGE difference in size/strength of 16-18 year old kids and 21-23 year old kids. I am not sure why I am arguing if you do not get this already zoneflyboy. Again, it would be a tremendous beating, and no they would not win, or even compete whatsoever, its just not happening. They would probably have to resort to a deep shotgun formation and quick screens, b/c they would get blown off the line like its not funny. I agree with several posters it would be something like an 80-0 blowout.

I already said that they probably couldnt compete on the offensive side of the ball, as every skill position on that side of the ball requires more technique and training than a high schooler would have. But on the Defensive side of the ball when your a high school SR. and you're already 6'6, 280 pounds and running a 4.6 40 time...... I think they would do allot better than you think against a team like Rutgers. And once again for the last time I am not saying that they would beat Rutgers, no way no how will that ever happen. But to think that RU would mop the floor with them isnt going to happen as opposed to if a team like UF, UT, 'Bama, or even USC or UGA played a power house high school team, then the score really would be 125-3 or something like that

*yawns* Football >> Basketball

And that comes from a scrawny kid who played nothing but basketball growing up, it was always the sport I was best at, but football was always my favorite sport.
There is not even a chance any high school team, anywhere, can compete with ANY Division I team. Nevermind a team that has been ranked in the Top 25 (like Rutgers) in the past couple years.

Look at it this way - even on the BEST high school team, not every kid is going to play in Division I, at a high level. Every starter at a Division I team....IS playing Division I ball. With Division I coaching. And Division I training facilities.

People who know sports know this. I'm not trying to make a big deal out of this....just calling you out in a friendly way -- there is no way that this could happen.
