    A truly disappointing ending . . . but, honestly:

    (1) End of 4th quarter--Why did they go for a pass on 3rd and 4 with a timeout to burn? If Ito makes that kick, Rutgers wins.

    OTOH, I still want Brian Leonard in a Pats uniform next fall. (Who wouldn't want an RB that can go past, around, through, or even over defenders?)

The bold win, not the careful...
