Kyle Flood explains the Rutgers formula

Publish date:

For a coaching staff, getting your team ready to play on a short week is always a challenge.

Kyle Flood explained that they spent more time in meetings than the normally do, and that some of the early penalties were a result of the crowd at Raymond James Stadium.

"I think that we were as ready as we could be. It was a short week and we can't do as much as we would like on their feet, so we try to do more in the classroom and meeting room, and I think our players played fast tonight. I don't think we saw any effects of the short week, more than anyone else would have."

When asked about their early penalties last night, Flood credited the crowd and explained "false starts have nothing to do with tired legs." Flood continued by explaining that penalties is the one glaring area that they can continue to improve on over the next 10 days.

Flood also touches on the "Rutgers formula" towards the end of the interview after he is asked to compare this years team to the 2006 team that went 11-2.

After going into the half down 6-3 last night, the Scarlet Knights came out and scored 10 points in the third and fourth quarters to go on to win 23-13.
