7pm. Pac-12 network.

Since they are a National story with a legit chance at a National Championship, I’ll try to make a thread for each game moving forward. You guys might need to remind me to make the threads because I don’t follow the schedule.

Go Lady Beavs!

    I was just looking at Nebraska’s schedule….
    http://www.huskers.com/SportSelect.dbml?SPSID=3&SPID=22

    Miami – Loss
    Minnesota – Loss
    Wisconsin – Loss
    Michigan State – Probable loss
    BYU – 50/50
    Iowa – 50/50

    Riley could lose 6 games next year.

    Way OT, but I’m just fascinated by Riley…hugely curious for this next football season.

    He could lose as many as 6.

      Do they play FCS teams? That first FCS loss will be the good one.

        Is South Alabama DII? If not, then they don’t. Bummer.
        Am I accurate to pencil in those losses? I don’t know enough about those programs. Maybe they are in rebuilding mode and Riley lucks out that way, but based on what I do know about those programs, 3 losses and 50/50 on three others.

        I’m a little obsessed with Riley. I’ll be perfectly honest. I want him to fail badly just to blow up the narrative. OSU doing well under Andersen and Riley flopping is the final piece of this puzzle.

          Don’t worry. Rile E. might take off running at full speed, but he and fans will eventually hit a team running the spread, look down and realize they ran past the edge of the cliff *plummet*

          Agree 100%.

          The only thing that could save him in the short term is a nit of the “Harbaugh effect” where the kids are tough and disciplined by the prior coach and still play that way despite the new marshmallow in charge.

          South Alabama is in the Sun Belt, I think……so technically they are D-1. I don’t think Nebraska has ever lost to a 1AA, but came close last year against McNeese State.

          You’re probably interested as we all are to some degree because we are curious as to how Riley will do, he hasn’t been a D1 head coach anywhere else, but OSU. I think it was an odd hire by Nebraska and I want to see how this plays out. The expectations are very high.

    This will be a good road trip for the team, win or lose. Tonight we’ll hopefully we see an end to the slow offensive start, better transition D, and good pressure on Plum.

    No Gabby Hanson tonight.
    I asked Gina twice about her status after the last game because I noticed her on the bench at the end of the game with a towel over her head and not participating in cheering on her teammates. And now, in her story for tonight she finally lets us know that Gabby, “is not dressed for pregame warmups after sustaining an undisclosed injury against UCLA Monday night.”
    A bummer on several levels.

    UW shot lights out. Late in 2nd half, they were over 50% FG. Major props to the Beavs physical play, especially Jamie Wiesner and Devan Hunter. We had tix down low and those two gals were mixing it up and fighting for every loose ball. Also, kudos to Mandy Close and Ruth Hamblin for taking time after the game to get a photo with my daughter. After a tough loss, they were both gracious and interactive with the Beaver fans up here in Seattle.

    I didn’t see much of the game but it looked like the perimeter defenders were having trouble guarding the huskies’ quickness and Hamblin never gave help fast enough. On the offensive end Hamblin had a hard time with the physical nature of the huskie defenders. They were leaning on Hamblin pretty good and when she pushed back the huskie flopped and Hamblin was called for the foul. If I would’ve been in Scott’s shoes I would’ve taken a T there if only to get my point across.

    In the end, the huskies shot the ball very well and the Beavs not so much.

          I think refereeing basketball is probably harder than football, and therefore good basketball refs are harder to come by. Bad refereeing in a basketball game is much harder to overcome.

            Bend, saw the game with your Boilermakers at the Barn. Really a fun game, but what should have been an easy win turned into a nail biter due some improbable shooting by Purdue and missing the front end of one and ones our our side. Goph’s got killed by offensive rebounds but got seventeen steals. Our coach summed it up in his own smart ass way perfectly, “things were looking good and then they started banking in threes.” Last few minutes Purdue hit seven threes on including two BANKED in tres by the same guy LOL. The best one, however, didn’t count. At the end of the first half with the clock at two seconds a guy launches a 65 footer and gets nothing but net! Unfortunately Painter called a TO a split second earlier. Wild game and the roof almost came off the old place a few times.

            There was lots of yelling in my house with all those turnovers. I think Painter was trying to call that TO a little earlier. The gophs were well prepared with their press that Purdue often struggles against, and their zone really clogged the lane for our bigs. It would’ve been a nice road win, oh well.

        Shall we go out and kick someone who is at a full trot in football? Let’s just call it a trip.

        Those aren’t dirty plays in football. Nobody would think twice about them, especially when fat people are lying on the ground writhing in pain… because they got kicked in the fucking legs while they were running at full speed… or any speed.

        But they’re your flops in soccer. So they must be painless.

        And running non-stop for miles is just wimpy compared to fat people who run 500 yards on a good day… with breaks every six yards or so… just because breaks are so exciting.

            “If I wanted to watch someone struggle to score for 90 minutes, I’d take my friends to the bar”

            I’m with you. Watching soccer is equal to watching paint dry or grass grow. Thank god neither of my sons play or desire to. I’m not going to argue that they aren’t athletes because imo they are. But the sport itself, well. It just flat ass sucks due to being boring. If I wanted to watch people just run around, I’d sit in my front lawn and watch the joggers running by. Speaking if running or jogging, I’ll take it up when I see someone smiling while doing it.

            I love just about every sport out there. I’m a competition junkie. Hell, I did science bowls and olympiads and math contests and spelling bees in school because I loved the competition… and getting out of school. Between all the sports and science/math/English competitions I was on the road for about 25% of my HS class days.

            But if I had to choose my favorite sport, I would go with hurling. That sport is fun to watch.

            Soccer and football are about equal when it comes to viewing. The only difference is that when a soccer game is bad there will be a lot of scoring. A bad football game is an overwhelming majority of football games out there.

      and unlike Jack I think Herb Sendek is a good coach. Not great, but good. He fits in at ASU just fine

    the three teams remaining in a 3-way tie for third all play Sunday. Beavs host hussies, ducks host coogars and USC plays Stanford at Maples. All home teams are favored to win. UCLA’s loss to Cal drops them to 6-5. Bears are playing very well in winning 4 in a row. Competition? Maybe. 4 wins are over WSU and UW (road), UCLA and USC at home. 3 of those games came down to the final possession.

      How on earth is USC favored to win over anyone? They suck!

        well they did come close to winning at Gill. And in Eugene. And against Cal Thursday night. But close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

          That depends on what you consider “close”. 4 points for the Beavs is a blow out!

            Depaul would have something to say about that. Still the best I’ve seen the beavs play all season. Very enjoyable game.

      Sunday’s games:
      1:30 pm (Fox S1) – I’m thinking we should harness the dawgs to the sled. I know it will be worth watching…I’ll be there.
      4:00 pm (Pac-12) – Wazzu should give the Yucks a run for their money tomorrow like they did on the Palouse. Will probably be worth watching.
      5:30 pm (EspnU) – It’s not likely for USC taking it to the trees on the farm.

    beavs up to 75th in RPI. Oklahoma State winning at Texas and over Kansas today certainly helps. UW @ 80th. They are in a free fall now. As previously stated, winning takes care of everything

    Beaver softball is 5-0 in the Kajilawa Invitatonal in AZ this weekend. Wins against ol’ Miss, U of Pacific, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Nevada. Chance to run the table this morning vs. Cal Poly and finish 6-0. Great start to the new season!
