A few key morning-after issues:
*Where would you rank Rutgers NOW?
*Did the Big East/Rutgers earn nat'l respect?

JoePa is a no-go for Saturday's game vs.
Veteran's Day Weekend is an appropriate time for the Cardinals to honor Pat Tillman. Now, it's time for the Pro Football Hall of Fame to fast-track his candidacy.
