Eric Legrand, It was like a dark locker room that you’ll ever meet after a spectacular victory, with the neck injury suffered in the fourth quarter by sophomore nose tackle Eric Legrand eclipsing anything that transpired on the field at the New Meadowlands Stadium Saturday.
But while their thoughts and prayers were clearly with their fallen teammate, some Rutgers players did their best to reflect the latest come-from-behind victory, and the fourth quarter heroism quart Chas Dodd has produced in the first two starts of his career.
In the wake of a 23-20-overtime victory against the Army, where they trailed 17-3 after three quarters, Dodd has emerged as the main reason for the hope that exists as Scarlet Knights as chief of Pittsburgh next weekend for a crucial Big East confrontation at Heinz Field.
The guy ragdolled for most games, absorbing eight sacks.
He was constantly at length feature, with six false start penalties.
Factor in some really bad coaching that the end of the game played in the settlement, and it was a game Rutgers could have been struggling to win were Johnny Unitas in the center, much less a freshman babyfaced true defense against a Black Knights “which gives you looks much as any team in the country.
Yet there was Kordell Young Dodd found in the left side of the end zone to start the back, ending a 77-yard drive in which he got sacked four times and converted two fourth down.
When they got the ball, he slid to his left into the end zone on second and-13 downfield and lofted a perfect pass to tight end for 53 yards DC Jefferson, recovery coaching equalizer that culminated with a 16-yard TD pass to Mark Harrison.
And finally, the third and-6 in overtime, he found Keith Stroud down to the Army 3-yard line, setting up Joe Martinek dive winning TD two plays later.
Captain Comeback arrived with a dirty beard and hair drive. Maturation of a young quarterback is unfolding before our eyes.
