06.Sep.2014 Beavs @ Hawaii (Game Thread)

Rating: 3.0/5 (2 votes cast)

Thread is going up a bit early because I’ll be on the road all day (heading to San Diego for the weekend, and trying to get down there in time to settle in and watch the game).

Nothing has changed over the past few days, and I am still taking Hawaii in the upset. I am surprised how many people like the Beavers in this game (and in a blowout no less) , and I hope you guys are right.

Go Beavs!

    31-17 Beavs, lots of FG’s for the Beavs late in the game. Hawaii scores first, then the Beavs take it to them. TD for the Beavs on the 2nd or 3rd play play of the first drive!

    How long are we keeping that AL sign outside Reser? I don’t think we get paid enough by the Reser Foundation to put their logos on our field much longer or that AL sign. He never played a down for OSU and by this point we were bound to have a half finished stadium anyway. Just seems like that sign is too much credit with years of his life but won’t make sense a few years from now. I would take it down with the VFC remodel.

    If Reser’s family wants to help make sure we have a sizeable contribution to eventually finish Reser Phase 3 right with a mirrored double deck so we aren’t stuck with a half-baked vision for the next 25 years it might be different.

    Out of the 80 million needed to complete a mirror by 2020 or so, it would be nice if they would make atleast a 10 million donation if we are going to continue to lionize their image over our field and stadium. Short of that we are underselling OSU.

    I could see Brandin Cooks making a 3 million donation to OSU in 7 or 8 years. As long as he stays healthy Brandin will have a very lucrative career. It will be great if he does something to give back to the university and promote Beaver Football.

    Everyone here is picking Beavs to win which is what I’m hoping for… but the line is Beavs lose by 11. Whatever. Early in the season like this it is hard to tell who will show up on game day from either team… Dr Jackal or Mr. Hyde. You would think being a Pac-12 team that I as a Pac-12 team fan should be sitting here confident that this is a warm-up game for the season to come. Not the case. The words “scared for tonight” seem more accurate.

        Cal looks to have made huge strides from last year. After they beat Sac St they’ll have more wins already than they had all of last year.

        Northwestern was a quality win to open their season, and now they are dominating weak competition.

      Vernon Adams is a really good college QB…no way around it. Probably no NFL potential, but he could easily be a great starter at the D1 level. Maybe similar to Kellen Moore in that respect.

        The only games I’ve watched him play have been last year against us and now against UW. His pocket maneuverability and awareness are solid, and his touch on those mid-range passes is damn impressive. Pretty tough guy too, considering he’s standing in there getting hit by those UW defenders quite a bit.

    So, after watching 7 quarters of the Huskies play, I have to ask: what has been all the hype about UW this year, with Top-25 talk and whatnot? Surely the masses didn’t believe Petersen was so superior to Sarkisian to make up for the loss of so many skill-position players.

    SC wins on a 53 yd FG then stopped tree on a Hogan sack/ fumble. Tree had plenty of chances and the mysterious chop block call doomed them (took away a TD and not a chop block IMO).

    Very impressed with Justin Wilcox today in huge win for USC that sets them up as Pac-12 South favorites and on position for a Playoff run. In contrast the Huskies without him gave up about 500 yards & 7 Vernon Adams TDs. In a better world where Riley was willing to pass the torch at an opportune moment, I would say OSU should pursue him hard in a couple years. That would be 16 long years for Riley and handing off in time for some real momentum to build before we eventually get serious about Reser expansion. The right hire could change the equation like Tinkle appears to be doing and breathe the kind of life into the program that allows it to reach new heights.

      Riley wouldn’t hand off to Wilcox…it’d be someone on staff. God, he’d probably say Banker deserves the chance to be HC….BDC would have to get an outsider, doubt he’d go for Wilcox due to UO history/connection, but who knows.

      Pick plays and blown coverages would give me a sense of who is open really quickly also. And I had an arm about as potent as Mariota’s when I was his age… not huge. He has some neat wheels. But don’t give the system the short shrift. In this case, don’t pretend the read option doesn’t exist.

      The fact that Riley doesn’t value QB mobility is absurd; even out of a pro-set.

      “It’s not what we do.”

    First half thoughts,

    It’s what I thought, make Hawaii beat the defense through the air.

    1. Bolden needs to gain 20 pounds tomorrow. He’s not going to make it unless he learns to avoid big hits.
    2. Defense keeps tackling high leading to extra yards.
    3. Steven Nelson is playing like a pro.
    4. TEs look good blocking and catching
    5. Ward looks like he wants the starting job back.
    6. Refs are just incompetent. I don’t blame Chow for being so hot. But even if all the calls went Hawaii’s way, it wouldn’t change the outcome of the game.
    7. Dockery has some nice wheels.

    If I were the play caller, I’d give a heavy dose of Ward and Woods right out the gate. But I expect Riley to try to pad Mannion’s stats. Definitely will see backups today sometime in the 4th quarter.

    He also said “I wish we’d have thrown the ball a bit more in the 4th, they were loading the box.” Riley always wants to throw more.

    That game was way closer than it ever needed to be. I don’t see how we get to even 7 wins this year, the Pac12 is going to chew us up. Our OLine is terrible, and that alone is going to cost us multiple games.

        I just finished watching the game on DVR. Mannion was not that sharp, I saw two or three picks Hawaii should have had, especially a pass to Hamlett in the flat that the defender should have had for a pick six,. San Diego St. may be the game where the Beavs pay if they don’t play a complete game. Aztecs gave top 25 North Carolina all they could handle. Rocky Long is a good coach.

          I have a buddy (coincidentally named Jason) who takes cider and mixes ginger mashes and other flavors in to make an outstanding cider. I’m still lazy, and his simple advice on making cider is what I do. But he has an induction burner and tried recipes and processes that are incredible and produce an incredible product. He’s also in the process of distilling his own whiskey and experimenting with various flavors involving peat and burnt barrels and such. It’s all too complicated for me to want to try it, but the science is fascinating.

    Ward rushes for something like 128 and had an 8.3 yards per carry average and all Riley can think about is more passing. Unfortunately that tells me Riley likes a softer style of play. Up 31 or up 10 in the 2nd half and you should be upping your rushing attack to ice the game how you are supposed to and maintaining or widening your margin of lead.

    Main thing is to keep doing what you were doing and not change or soften your desire for more TDs just because you have a nice lead. Riley seems to not be able to get out of his way when the situation is good.

        After we took the 31 point lead, we had five straight possessions which resulted in punts and one more possession of victory formation. Within those five possessions, we had 11 runs for 46 yards and 10 passes for 23 yards.

    On the way to Hawaii we took a wrong turn and ended up on Grand Cayman. We missed the game, but man oh man, does the staff ever learn or adjust? Change the football mascot from the Beaver to the Groundhog. How can you not find one lousy series for the backup QB? How can you accept two weeks in a row with 13 penalties against an inferior opponent? How can you not get the young running backs a few plays? Where is the University level intelligence by the leadership? A couple of years ago I compared Riley to Mack Brown because they were both mailing the effort in and were delegating everything but the paycheck. I do think that Perry, Bray and Brennen (and a few others) are earning their keep by recruiting, coaching and pushing their charges to excel. But when the leader coasts, the result is community college rather than world class University.

    Progressive quality in play and sustained, competitive, well-played league play seem highly unlikely. Riley talks about the need to constantly improve, but is incapable of constantly and consistently improving the play quality of his team.

    I have seen this time and time again with Riley. Get a good lead takes the team into a shell. Defense, who was playing a terrific game, ends up being on the field non-stop at the end which wears them out and all the sudden the team we were beating down makes a run come back. Meanwhile we all are sitting here with our mouths wide open. Unbelievable. Time for Riley to go or at least turn the play calling over. They won, but as usual I don’t feel good about it.

    Seems about that time to have a mature discussion about OSU Football after Riley. After this year I get the sense there are alot of fans who want to be in the last 2-3 years of Riley. That would mean targeting a new coach for the 2017 or 2018 seasons and beginning a new chapter which by that time has to be healthiest for OSU. I prefer Masarri make that choice. If BDC isn’t extended beyond 2016 it would be good timing. My preference is Riley step down to pass forward the torch for the 2017 season to someone like Justin Wilcox. Our defense will be stout and we can find a nice OC to go with it. The Riley era can’t last for too many years longer if OSU has more aspirations beyond being a small time novelty every once in awhile and he has had as much time as anyone currently in NCAA football with just mediocre results. As a university that values the pursuit of knowledge we must pursue further ourselves to become more.

    How would others ideally like to see this transition occur and how soon?

        I don’t think there was much until the clock was winding down and time management became a part of the game. Then it was apparent we had nobody with any common sense on the sideline. We called some TOs when Hawai’i had the ball in order to give ourselves another possession. We let some time run off before the first TO, but the next was done immediately. When we got the ball, we tried to dink and dunk and got nowhere fast enough that we actually had to give up the ball again.

Then the grand jury looks at it and classifies it as felony assault. Then the DA decides to let Rice plea it down to a misdemeanor, like the grand jury never existed.

            And now we’re hearing rumors that the NFL did see this tape.

    “On if Chris Bown could get involved in the running game:

    “I don’t know. It’s hard to plan for three (backs to get carries). We’ve got a pretty good older duo (with Storm Woods and Terron Ward). Chris Brown is a good football player, and I have no reservations about playing him at all. It’s just not that easy to do and fit it all in together. But I’d like to. And like I said, I have no reservations whatsoever (about) him playing.”

    The closeness of the game was all on the coaches. The defense couldn’t do much having to defend 20 yards or less three times. The errors were all mental.

    Mannion with a terrible pick and two more that he got away with.
    Dockery needed to secure the ball on the return.
    Punt protection – failure to see the extra guy rushing. I’ve never seen a punt blocked with the shield formation.

    Luckily they played well enough in the 1st half that UH couldn’t recover.

    I watched a bit of the SDSU game, they played fearlessly at North Carolina and came within 3 yards of winning. They have a bye week too so less likely they will have a hangover coming in two weeks. SDSU is going to be a tough game. But maybe that’s what this team needs.
