Rutgers fan makes terrible fake newspaper predicting Ohio State loss

New, 5 comments

This is really bad.

Rutgers fans' creativity is apparently at full force in Piscataway today as Kyle Flood and company prepare to host the No. 1 team in the country, the defending national champion Ohio State Buckeyes.

One Rutgers fan even went as far as to mock up a fake Sunday morning newspaper, commemorating what would go down as one of the biggest wins in Rutgers' college football history.

The fake "Sunday Columbus Times" reads as follows:

Buckeyes Stunned

Before a sold-out stadium and the largest viewing audience to ever watch a College Football Game on ABC, Rutgers beats [sic] Ohio State 27-24. The game belonged to the Rutgers Special Teams with a kick return for a TD, a punt return for a TD, and blocked field goal attempt as time was winding down. Ohio State's 2-headed quarterback, JT Barrett was severed [sic], going 8-17 with only 96 yards and 1 interception. The chance for a repeat National Championship can be summed in one New Jersey word "Fuhgeddaboudit". There were no cheers in Columbus last night, only tears. But once again, there was Pandemonium in Piscataway! Next game: Nov. 7th vs. Minnesota.

We'll avoid making fun of the punctuation inconsistencies and capitalization mistakes as they happen to the best of us. But let's see here, where to begin?

J.T. Barrett apparently has two heads? And one of them was severed or ... ?

Even in a Rutgers fan's wildest dream, the offense was nowhere to be found, with the Scarlet Knights instead having to rely on multiple special teams touchdowns to spring the upset.

To say nothing of embracing the "fuhgeddaboudit" stereotype.

Though the stock photo of Terrelle Pryor really adds to the parody, we can only hope, for their sake, that this incredible display of creativity is the worst thing that happens to Rutgers today.
