There isn’t much of note to take away the game, but Scarlet Knights quarterback Johnny Lanegan finished the game with one of the most mystifying stat lines I’ve ever seen.Lanegan played the entire game at quarterback for Rutgers. It was his fourth appearance of the season, for a team that has been churning through quarterbacks this year.Artur Sitkowski was benched earlier in the year, and may take a redshirt season, as he’s played in just three games so far. He can play in four or fewer and still use a redshirt for the season.McLane Carter is out indefinitely for Rutgers, after suffering a concussion. That made Lanegan the starter today, and the results were…unique. In the entire game, he was 5-for-13 for just one single passing yard.Rutgers quarterback Johnny Langan finishes the game 5/13 for 1 yard passing. This is the most completions for fewest yards since 2000. The next lowest total yardage for 5 completions was 46 yards.— RedditCFB (@RedditCFB) October 12, 2019That is a solid 0.077 yards per attempt on the day. Needless to say, there’ve been more efficient efforts out on the gridiron this afternoon.Things actually get more unbelievable with a look at the play-by-play from the game.On RU’s second drive, which came after Lanegan was strip-sacked for an Indiana touchdown on the first play from scrimmage, Lanegan completed a pass to Aaron Young for four yards. It was his long for the day.On the next drive, Lanegan threw to Young again, for a three-yard loss.The following drive, Lanegan found Paul Woods for -2.On Drive No. 5, Lanegan found Young again, for three yards.He didn’t manage a completion on RU’s sixth drive, but on the seventh, which began at just over 13 minutes left in the second quarter, Lanegan completed one to Bo Melton for -1 yards.He was never replaced at QB, but he was 0-for-5 through the rest of the game.This isn’t all meant to clown Lanegan. Rutgers has much deeper problems than a third-string quarterback’s struggles in Big Ten play. He also didn’t have any real help, and was sacked six times in the game.Indiana was outgained 557-75 total yards in the game.last_img read more
