PISCATAWAY – In the game of football, games aren’t won and lost on Saturdays. As much as the execution on game day affects the outcome, so does the preparation during the workweek.
But when it comes to facing a team that runs the triple-option like Navy, more than three days of practice are needed. So Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano has been “stealing reps.” It starts in spring practice and carries over to training camp, and then into Sunday practices during the season.
“There are other things we'd like to be working on, but there is no way you prepare for this offense unless you do it in training camp in the spring and then weekly,” Schaino said. “to stay sharp, otherwise, there is no chance.”
