Rutgers at Tulane preview: Season opener will have high emotion

Rutgers at Tulane preview: Season opener will have high emotion

COMMENTARY

Despite the gamut of emotions people around the country are feeling concerning Hurricane Isaac in the wake of a post-Katrina world, the season opener for Rutgers and Tulane will be played on Saturday at 7:03 p.m. The uncertainty that comes with every natural disaster makes what is happening in New Orleans all the more troubling, so here is this writer’s hope that every family and person emerges from this hurricane as physically and emotionally healthy as ever.

Moving to the game, here are five important subplots to keep an eye on this Saturday:

1. Gary Nova 2.0

New head coach Kyle Flood has been a staunch proponent of the philosophy that this is quarterback Gary Nova’s team (after he named him the starter a week and a half ago), that the sophomore is the team leader playing the sport’s toughest position.

So far Nova has embraced the challenge, and after starting five games last year and throwing for 1,553 yards with 11 touchdowns, Nova is determined to lead by example and play with better poise in the pocket.
