Not bad.  Only things they  missed were the 1976 Final Four run by Phil Sellers, James Bailey and Eddie Jordan and the 2007 win over #2 USF.  Oh and the 1869 win over Princeton!

That's ok.  We're not into Purdue either.

Beating a 5-7 MSU team qualifies as a classic? Yikes. I don't even remember a dramatic ending or anything.

Was that the really boring game, may have been a shutout, that was Labor Day weekend?   May have been a Sunday or Monday game.

If so, I remember being bored to absolute tears, but  watched nearly all of it because I was stuck at a party where I knew no one else.

It was Labor Day weekend, but Saturday. MSU led 7-3 at half. Rutgers had a pick 6 and 3 more field goals to go up 19-7. MSU scored early in the 4th to make it 19-14 and that was it. It may be the most forgettable game in my time there. It stands out in no way.

There are many links that have yet to be recognized by many between Rutgers and B1G schools. The U. of Wisconsin and Illinois nutrition departments (2 of the best programs) have very strong ties to Rutgers. RE: Purdue, long term faculty and Dean of the School of Agriculture, Charlie Hess is a Rutgers grad. Rutgers played an important role in the agriculture and science programs at Penn State. More recently Brian Ellerbe was the coach of Michigan. So on the academic side there are hundreds of connections that I guess most people don't know about unless they are into academics. But I can name quite a few, especially in science, medicine and agriculture. On the field of play, it is pretty astonishing that the Big Ten Schools and RU have not met more. So there is not a history there yet. Hopefully we will all learn more about each other and a few good games may catch people's attention. RE: Rutgers day on BTN - not sure why they chose some of the games they did. It is interesting to see who was on the field though and what the perspective was at the time.

Considering Rutgers went 4-7 that year it was a big deal for us. If that's the standard though I'd rather see the 33-0 blowout of Illinois in 2006.

And MSU was 5-7. Just seems like every game they show is either a big game or a great ending, and that seems pretty far from either.

I was at that game in 2006.  I left at half time.  I don't need to see that again.

Yeah you already said that.  And once again it was a huge win for Rutgers considering it could only go 4-7 in the Big East that year.  It's Rutgers Day,  not Michigan State day. I can understand why you wouldn't want to see it.

I couldn't care less. I would feel the same if they aired a win by a crappy MSU team against a crappy other team that lacked any sort of watchable ending. If they showed MSU losing to Louisiana Tech by giving up two TDs I would get why, crappy teams with a great ending, and MSU lost. MSU losing that game has zero to do with the laughableness of calling that any sort of game worth replaying.

The Rutgers - Michigan State game could be shown for a few reasons........

1. It's one of the few games where Rutgers played a B1G school, thus video archives for a game vs. a B1G school.

2. Rutgers has not played many Power 5 teams period in relationship to its history, so there were fewer games to choose from.

3. BTN had to pay for the rights to air games and probably picked some games that didn't cost very much to compensate for the ones that might have been more expensive.

Un-huh. Well I guess BTN will have to do without your viewership that day.  Moving on.
