TheRoundUp 10/6: Is this a rivalry or not edition

Just a quick note up top, as Rutgers Hate Week hasn't been all that hate-y so far. It's been kind of a busy week for me, so I haven't been able to unleash my full fury, but I'm hoping to get some stuff later this afternoon. I'll start now by taking a quote from a former Rutgers head coach completely out of context: "You can call it a fighting cock, you can call it any damn thing you want." That was former head coach Harvey Harman. I'll be back later to explain the context, but feel to guess at it in the comments. On to TheRoundUp.
