        I agreed with you! I did see a 3rd round project……which is what the rams got…..oh well. I wonder what it feels like to burn 12 million (or whatever he’s being paid) on a bench warmer. Or rather a guy who is basically a spectator.

          The money and cap space is peanuts compared to the value of the draft picks they gave up trading up for him.

          If Goff doesn’t pan out, that trade could put the Rams in the hole for 5 years. Look at the Redskins with RG3, and they didn’t even give up as much.

            Goff has just as many career playoff wins as RG3.

            Over/under on how many games RG3 lasts this year either due to injury or suckage?

            Joey 5 Picks had potential. If he would have gone lower in the draft to a better team and given a few years in the system to develop rather than being thrown to the wolves on a shit team he might have had a better career.

          When you spend a number 1 draft pick and tons of money, you want more than “could be good.” Nothing against Goff personally. They offered, he’s rich, good for him.

    Stanton “never again.” Even in league play? And “He revealed that the Beavers struggled to adapt throughout the game when Minnesota utilized different pass-rushing techniques than they had seen on the previous season’s film.” Really? Like you didn’t have the reaction time to pick up the freshman Devers? How different can a technique be?

        “Re Stanton: At least the team is acting like a team this year. Good for him to step up and talk.”

        Good point.

        I just think its funny that they overstate or overanalyze the problem – “we hadn’t seen that technique on film.” As beavergopher said, it was just quickness and (lack of) response.

        But you’re right, Garretson and the lineman are staying together.

        I also think Garretson will get better about getting rid of the ball quicker and being more aware of the rush. Idaho State won’t be a good metric for O line and QB improvement, but the BSU gaje should be a pretty good indicator of progress.

      The only difference I saw was a major increase in blitzes from the Gophers. Clayes rarely blitzed and tried to keep things in front and make the tackle. Bend, don’t break. The new DC, Sawvel, was way more aggressive and da Beavs made him pay with the screen passes.
      This is only Devers’ third year of playing football, so I doubt he beat him on techigue. Looks like it was just pure speed. Stanton appeared to be moving in slow motion.

        I live in the stone ages and don’t have a laptop. I used to stream for free using my smart phone but I got a new phone and it’s having trouble streaming w/ all those damn pop ups. So this sling TV thing might be a viable option. It does have all the other channels I watch too…

          fair enough. If you have ANY computer in your home that has internet capability you can still stream for free. Long as you aren’t so far in the stone age that you have dial up speed. The laptop suggestion was so you could put it near your TV and hook up the laptop to the TV via said HDMI cable so you can watch on your TV instead of a smaller computer screen. A desktop would still work it would just need to be at a reasonable distance from said TV, a longer HDMI cable would probably be necessary or you could move the TV or watch on the desktop computer screen. I still have DISH but do not pay for any of the extra sports stuff such as NFL Sunday ticket, NBA league pass, etc. There’s plenty of websites out there that stream for free in HD is all I’m sayin

            We’re streaming thru a Kindle fire TV box using the Kodi app. Works great about 95% of the time. I streamed the cal/Hawaii game and my stepson watched the last NBA finals game on it. There’s a lot of servers on the different builds so you sometimes have to sift through them to find a good feed of the event you want to watch.

      No, but practice was at 8am so I don’t think that would have been possible logistically with him expected to arrive today.

      “6. Practice took place about three hours earlier than normal, allowing coaches to get out on the road recruiting during the bye week. Players have a strength and conditioning workout Friday morning and then will be off for the weekend. ”

      So he apparently arrives yesterday, and no practice until Monday. Will likely be little in the press about him until at least Monday.

      And while its taken Wallace longer to qualify than anyone would like, I at least like the fact this staff appears to be getting it done, just as they did with Peko. With the previous staff, Wallace may not have shown at all.

        Normally I don’t like to discuss some kid’s private life involving gf’s, but in the case of Wallace I am going to break the norm. He is extremely attached to the gf and sounds like he has trust issues with her. Not sure if that played into him going back home for awhile. She apparently said goodbye to him yesterday, so I am assuming he is here.
        I hope he doesn’t make the mistake of Malcolm Agnew and decide that girls are way more important than football. If the girlfriend loves the guy, she will stick with him and the guy should then stop worrying so much and concentrate on football and school. Some guys just are not cut out for juggling girls and high profile college sports.

    There was some debate here about his potential when he went to Philly. At the time i simply thought NFL defenses were just too fast for his scheme to be a success (citing what his teams did against top competition), but it sounds like it’s even worse than that.

        Georgia is more over-ranked each year than any other team. SEC always tries to pain them as an Alabama of the East division and they are much closer to Vanderbilt level. By the the time they fade out of the Top 25 in Week 7 or 8 , a few of their teams have already secured their wins over a Top 20 team by beating a Georgia team who is consistently 8 or 9 spots higher in rankings than they have any business of having. Stanford would beat Georgia 9 times out of 10.

      I like the fact that he’s on his team about being tough during a game. Which is the attitude that GA is bringing to Corvallis.

      However, I didn’t hear him comment on some of the coaching decisions/mistakes that were made during the game.

      Golly gee I guess that means he’s human, just like the rest of us.

    I thought BSU looked pretty solid; good defense, pass protection was pretty good, giving QB time to make downfield throws. Given OSUs inability to rush the passer at Minnesota, and their own QB protection challenges, this should shape up to be a good challenge and measuring stick in a few weeks.

    “But let’s be more specific here. Oregon’s piñata wasn’t Mike Riley, it was Mark Banker. In the seven losses, the Beavers gave up an average of 578 yards and 45.6 points. Time and time again, Oregon humiliated him.

    “I can’t say there’s a lot of love in my heart right there,” Banker said.

      Thanks for the links. Here is the part which makes it clear the Husker writer is catching on:

      “…Riley talks each week about cleaning up the mistakes. This is a recording. That was the plan all spring. Last year. The year before and before that.

      At some point, you are what you do over and over.

      There are bad habits ingrained here, and this isn’t just on the previous staff’s tab. Riley and Co. have had a year to pound discipline into this team. Clearly, it’s not there yet. And it’s hard to see it changing anytime soon.”

            I’m happy for anyone – absolutely anyone – to defeat Oregon, any time – at anything. And, perhaps, if Nebraska defeats Oregon this coming Saturday, Banker will very soon retire a happy man and save the rest of the football world from both his football inadequacies and his dance attempts.

    Is this a beaver page or what? Half of what I see is about Riley and the other half is music videos. Turn the page, Riley is gone. Nebraska has their own deal, go talk nebraska sports on their site. I come here to see opinions about beaver football. Guess maybe I should rethink that. Any other sites worth visiting that focus on OSU sports?

    http://www.scout.com/college/oregon-state/story/1705529-top-wide-receivers-of-the-decade-5

    Going back to 2007 the top 4 are obvious

    Brandin Cooks
    Marcus Wheaton
    Sammie Stroughter
    James Rodgers

    They couldn’t come up with a better number 5?

    I’d have picked Richard Mullaney over him at 5. I’ll omit Darrell Droppings, I mean Catchings from consideration. I’m sure there’s been others than those mentioned that received for more than 461 yards and 3 TD’s in a season in the last 10 years. That is not a bright spot

      We had a pretty good run of #1 receivers for about a decade there. Amazing how much having an elite receiver opens up everything else on the offense.

      There were possession receivers worth taking over Bolden. At least they could, well, catch.

      Those four are good.

      I don’t know why they would talk about Bolden as a runner or returner when we’re talking about receivers. If we’re talking about numbers over a career, I would put Bolden at about 8… tied with Mullaney. He’s had one good year and one moderate. And he can move up to as high as 5 with a great season… higher with a Belitnekoff Award… which he won’t get. He won’t catch the ball over the middle, so he’s a liability there. But he can catch on the edges and sometimes deep. If he does more scoring, his numbers start looking a lot better.

      I’d put Quizz at 5, Villamin at 6 and Halahuni at 7.

    What to look for this weekend –

    1. A win!
    2. No big hiccups. Put the game away early.
    3. I’m going to say the intro video is going to be weird. They haven’t been good since 2008.

    A big win will show the program has made some progress. A win like last year’s over Weber St isn’t going to cut it. Needs to be a blowout for fans to see any light at the end of the tunnel.

      Have you ever thought about an Oatmeal bar? Tons of different ways you can go for “toppings”, it’s super easy to make ahead of time and just keep warm in a crock pot, and goes over well on colder mornings.

          I’m thinking : make up some oatmeal(flavored?) Put in crock pot on warm setting and put it out with various toppings(not forgetting the all important carrots) so people can “build” their own fancy bowl of oatmeal.

      And because nobody wants to watch a boring, pre-Idaho State presser, the summary from Gina:

      http://www.oregonlive.com/beavers/index.ssf/2016/09/oregon_state_used_bye_week_for.html#incart_river_index

      “Andersen acknowledged the emotions of the Beavers’ home opener, particularly since they will be using their new locker room on game day and running out of their new tunnel for the first time.

      “I would hope that would come with a ton of excitement, which I absolutely guarantee that it will,” Andersen said. “But I also hope it comes with responsibility. I’m not gonna let go of all those steps that we need to turn around and take.

      “It’s not just running around with my head cut off and being crazy. It’s holding it in the moment and understanding it, but yet playing with emotion but playing as a team. That locker room and this facility (were) built with expectations, and they’re responsible to go out there and represent Beaver Nation the right way.”

      What do people guess for attendance? I’m thinking around 34K?

        If it’s a sell-out, then our sell-out streak will be as long as the one down here.
