1:00 PST on Pac-12 Network
Use more than 5 plays……..and run the f’ing ball.
Win the darn game against a patsy. Colorado may be slightly improved but they are still a cellar Pac-12 program for now.
If we lose this the OSU President needs to acknowledge the ineptitude and have a Monday press conference to stop the incessant bleeding. BDC & Riles are replaced midseason. Bray or Garrett become interim HC and Massari becomes new AD.
Simple as that.
38-31 Buffs…hope I’m wrong
Salmon Days worth going to?
Ha! Staying away this year
It shut my job down…figured I might check out what my crews are sitting at home for!
I’m thinking 38-17
Interesting analysis on the impact of coaches OSU is shown to improve the recruits they get but not by a whole lot. Riley is not turning 3 stars into 5 stars. More like 3 stars into 3.5 stars.
Posted this on the scout board and it was quite obvious that people responding without even looking at it. So ridiculously sensitive they are.
Why would anyone be sensitive about this?
My fear is that Colorado and some of these lesser schools have weak enough secondaries that we can play the pass happy game and still pull off the win. We then learn nothing and get pulverized by the next quality opponent a la USC (which, incidentally, was not “quality “).
The thing that kills me- Woods was sensational last week. What more could he possibly have done to earn more carries?
That’s what I think, too. Mannion will have 400 yards, Beavs will win, and everyone will think all is well.
Ps. Big fantasy football game this week, too.
Sad, but you can be sure that even if Mannion approaches 400 yds Riley will still be hesitant to give either backup QB any playing time. Riley is so focused on getting stats for Sean that it diminishes his, already weak, game planning.
Wish you all could have heard Riley interviewed on local radio 1080 the other day. Isaac Ropp asked a ton of questions about USC and specifically asked about the run game working well yet being abandoned. Riley was all, “aw shucks…you know..we were running it well…and it was just a strange thing…we had a guy averaging pretty good yardage too in the first part there…but we meed to work on balance…blah blah blah…) I’m paraphrasing of course, but he acknowledged woods was running it well but couldnt understand why the beavs didnt stick with it. Its almost like he doesnt realize HE IS THE GUY IN CONTROL OF THIS TEAM!!!
Was so frustrating to hear him talk about his team like they were some other team that he doesnt have influence over. I hope they put that interview on podcast
That is really messed up. There is something definitely wrong with him (like physically/mentally).
I have personal experience from childhood trauma. It’s a defense mechanism that allows a person to “split off” when enduring stressful situations. It is not schizophrenia but a natural coping mechanism. I’m certain Riley’s personality is so intentionally calm and holds in so much stress (he likely doesn’t have ways to outlet that stress) that one of his ways to cope is to … dissociate.
This includes memory loss, avoidance, foggy thinking, depression, vague/meandering speaking. All of which manifest itself in the program and in the live game.
Everyone is dogging Riley for passing so much, but is on Leach’s jock for being so smart. Maybe Riley just read this blog and is trying to be more like Leach?
Ever think of that, brainiacs?
Comparing what Leach does to what Riley does is apples to oranges.
Leach runs an offense that depends on the pass. Riley does not run that offense. If he wants too, great but then he needs to re-design the offense because Leach’s offense is about quick reads and getting the ball out. For Riley’s offense to be pass happy you need a great offensive line that gives your QB lots of time. A running game and play action can help your line in a Riley offense but you have to commit to the run, Leach doesn’t need the run to protect his QB/passing game. Riley does.
Different philosophies genius.
Yeah the WR routes WSU uses are completely different. They pass to the RBs more, too. And I think they use more 3 step drops. It’s a completely different offense. Almost more like West Coast than Pro.
They break it down a little here: https://westvirginia.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1654950
Say there is no playbook…complete contrast to Riley
I figured my last two sentences would let on that I was being sarcastic.
Subtle differences between air raid and pro set offenses there jackwagon.
Leach never says, “we need to be more balanced” and “we need to run the ball more”.
No, he just references fat little girlfriends and then locks you in a dark equipment shed! Swing your sword! ARRRRRRRRGGHHHHH!!!!
Did you think that up all on your own?
Who’s even praising Leach all that much at this point? Mr.Pirate’s team played a nice game against the Ducks and pulled one out with Utah, but they also lost to Nevada and Rutgers. Wazzu is a “remains to be seen” in my book.
But I would take Leach over Riley because it appears that Leach has a plan/identity on offense. I don’t know what the hell Riley has on any given week,
Riley still searching for his “identity”
Against Colorado I would run a pitch to the right, then a pitch to the left, then a QB keeper/draw, then punt on 4th and 8. I would pray, literally, for the defense to get lucky and score a touchdown for a huge 10-7 win, after which I would be triumphantly cared off the field by the players. Wake up Jerry… your’e dreaming again. Worked for me.. well sort of. JB
Worked against the Ducks in ’93. Go Muhammed!
no one would “care you off the field”. Oh wait, Don Shanklin would. Sorry, my bad
aTm falls back to earth. Hill with 3 INTs and the aTm defense has given up over 500 yds and there’s still 10 min to go. MS state up 48-17.
SEC! SEC! SEC!
Disney better fire up the spin machine.
Is Bolden playing??
Conner is saying yes, Bolden is starting
Over/Under for Cal/Wazzu is 73.5. I’ll take the over. Both defenses are awful. I expect to see another shootout like Cal/Buffs
Hey! That defense sacked Mariota 7 times.
Sooo…Mississippi state/Auburn for college game day next week? have they ammounced the location yet because that seems likely.
Anyone have a good stream? The ones I’ve found stutter a bit.
I’m using this one so far:
Any idea how to get rid of the stupid porn image covering the screen?
You need to be careful when googling for “beaver live stream”
Pac 12 network heads voting 2-1 against beavs
Hard to argue. We looked like a high school team for most of the USC game.
Dylan Wynning at the line of scrimmage.
Run the frickin’ football Riley!!
Pass, run, Bomb…punt
Super stoked for Bolden to be back…to drop all of his passes.
I’m teaching a welding class til 2:00…keep the updates coming.
Pic by DJ!
Why is Scott covering Spruce?
Second short yardage stuff
Ward runs for 7. Keep pounding it!
We got our one run for the drive out of the way!
These teams running essentially the same offense. Bubble screens. Passes to the TE in the flat, and passing for long yards on 3rd and short
Ward runs for 33. HELLO RUN GAME!
It’s Colorado, don’t jizz yourself 😉
Still I’ll take it
exactly, I don’t care if they beat CO
I think more people will care if the beavs lose!
Take that cheerleader!!
Listening on the radio….sounds like Jim Wilson has about had it with Riley….”If you want to be a running team, then be a running team”!
Earlier he questioned the long pass on 2nd and 5. Go Jim!
Wilson was calling Riley out last week at the end of the half when a TO was not called. Wilson is so savvy in both FB and Baseball.
Smith’s got to turn that catch into a TD.
He has no agility. Takes him forever to turn lol.
Their run defense looked pathetic there. Ward just crushed them.
Now we have enough running yards that we can throw the rest of the game, right?
Running opens up a nice thriw to Caleb Smith to the 4 and the Ward finishes with a nice TD run.
Offense works when it is done run first to make passing easier and both clicking.
Keep using this formula & OSU will win games in the Pac-12.
Btw, that throw to Connor was PERFECT. Beautiful throw.
Pick by Alexander down to the Colorado 6 or 7 yrd line.
Is Dashon Hunt getting any minutes these days?
Glad to see Alexander get that pick. He’ll be missed next year
Second rushing td, I think that is 5 in row by the offense dating back to SDS
Why is everyone picking Colorado to beat us? They’re terrible… Because they scored 60 versus Cal? I realize we’ve been inconsistent, but come on.
Goes to show you how much people “respect” Riley
Another running TD! Storm Woods. Formula of running more tgan passing is what works for OSU’s offense. Maybe Riley partially us beginning to get it?
Woods 2nd effort for the TD. 2 rushing touchdowns in the 1st? Has riley lost his mind?
First time I seen Justin Strong not make the tackle?
UC with a 36 yard Pass TD. Poor tackling by the defender.
Nice job by the defender, tagging the receiver and then falling down. Good work.
No pressure on the QB so far, picked secondary apart on that drive.
Another reason Banker sucks. We basically never get pressure outside of great individual effort. No blitzes or bad blitzes.
Ward run on 1st sets up the 2nd down throw for 1st down.
Riley is getting pass happy again…2 first down passes…run the ball!
Ward runs for 4. 3rd and 6 and throw to Smith short by a yard. That 3 downs was a tad too pass happy and it slowed us up and probably kept that from being another TD drive. FG good though.
Ward actually ran for 5. The bailout pass on 1st down after needlessly looking for a home run ball too early, lost a yard.
I hate downfield passes that don’t go to the marker. Screens are fine because the back is getting blocking and expected to make someone miss, but to run a short pattern on 3rd down drives me crazy. I don’t know if it’s the QB or receivers fault? Sean Canfield was a master of throwing a 5 yard completion on 3rd and 7.
that bubble screen is a free 5+ yards every time if we insist on “covering” it with a safety 12 yards back.
Enjoying a 10 pt. first qtr. lead on the mighty Buffs guys? Is this Pure Orange? Ha ha
Some sloppy defense going on and a nice sack that was wasted.
defense now looking like swiss cheese
D line can’t stay on their own side. Nuckleheads. “7th time OS has jumped”…says J. Wilson.
“lack of discipline” preach it Wilson
JW is testy today!
Is that Larry Scott botching another coverage? Jumping when his man caught an easy pass instead of covering…
That was bizarre, why in the hell is Scott jumping behind the receiver? He at least had a clean shot for a hard tackle if sees the play.
We’re not blitzing and playing a safe zone, and getting picked apart by bubble screens and hook routes.
We are playing too soft on the outside.. We should be in press coverage take away the bubbles and stop routes
12 yrd TD run for CU. Riley needs to be run first this next series.
Defense looks brutal and undisciplined. That’s Mark Banker’s music!!!
Losing containment on the outside time after time after time. That sweep is murdering us.
Why are there no dick cancer ads? #genderequality
they’re called women
Because no dude would admit to having dick cancer.
That old “vanilla” scheme is biting us in the same
My worry now is that Riley is going to panic and start calling passes on every down when what they need are some runs to let the defense rest. Defense looked gassed already.
Much easier not to worry anymore about the Riley era.
Woods runs for 5+ and it was nearly 15+. We should run on 75% of 1st downs.
This offense is so random…zero flow.
Mannion is like Peyton Manning; just enough mobility to keep plays alive for an extra second. That’s at least three times this season he should have been sacked but just bought an extra bit of time to throw the dump off. First down.
3rd and 6 and a two yd pass
And Wilson doesn’t hesitate to criticize. If he didn’t have membership in OSU HOF he’d be risking censure.
Woods with 4.5 yards on 1st. 2nd down no gain. 3rd and 6 and like before the route is short despite the completion.
Our WR can’t win.. Need to mix up the routes and we haven’t ran a fly sweep all day
3rd down and for the millionth time, we throw a stupid TE cross pass that, as ALWAYS, doesn’t convert.
Seriously, it’s like the 10th time this year we’ve run that play on 3rd and 5-10. Give it up, learn a fucking slant play.
I don’t understand if that is on the QB or receiver? Is the receiver screwing up the route or should the QB go elsewhere knowing that there is no chance for the 1st down?
This should be our main route.. Best option for dudes who can’t separate
“Best option for dudes who can’t separate”
LMFAO! Sorry but my pea brain went a different direction with that one
Have they run on 3rd down yet. But passes short of the marker are okay?
BUT OUR RBs CAN’T GAIN 5 YARDS!!
Oh wait, they have all day…
Beavs receivers don’t seem to get much if any separation. CU receivers have been wide open. This game is no sure thing, Buffs look much improved.
Or the Beavs are that well coached.
They are blocking way too early on a lot of these throws.. Our coaches need to force the issue.. It’s offensive PI on about every other throw
Bad snap a gift for Beavs; a quality team/coach puts the foot on the neck of the opponent in this situation. Beavs?……..we’ll see.
Important drive for the Beavs. Will decent or bad Riley show up. Good mix of run and pass and OSU can take the 10 point halftime lead.
Nice individual plays…
Riley wanting to see balls in the air again. 3 and out?
Wow great play Sean man noon and Jarmom
Jarmon with a clutch catch. Very lucky as Mannion probably should have been sacked.
Sean Mannion: Mobile quarterback
What a fucking beast.
Run the ball
Now you see why I said Jarmon was the one guy who could replace Cooks.
Great catch by Jarmon too. Fuck Bolden, let’s get Jarmon some more touches.
Big 3rd down here. Convert!
Time to retire the screen for awhile
Nice to see Mannion roll out of the pocket for once, and it worked out well.
Our TEs look like statues today. They catch the ball and then are just stuck in the mud.
Anyone else besides me getting fucking sick of hearing about Maryohtah? He isn’t even playing in this game
Yup, I hope UCLA toasts the Ducks and then it should be crickets chirping.
Why do you call him Maryohtah? Do you think that’s clever or funny?
Because I can? I didn’t come up with it. Don’t shoot the messenger. He’s overrated as shit. And he’s a duck. So I hate
He had Bolden underneath there
Mannion with a horrible decision. Instead of throwing to a wide open Bolden and getting an easy 1st down on a crossing route, he throws a much more difficult pass to Mullaney that falls incomplete.
see my comment below. I saw the same thing
That looked like MASSIVE pass interference. Never looked at the ball, left hand all over Mullaney. Wtf.
What is wrong with Hamlett this year? I don’t think he was in the right place on that screen…looked awkward. He and Smith were supposed to be the strong suit.
You call a timeout and that’s the best play you come up with?
Mullaney drops the TD. Tough catch but should have had it. Needed a strong willed rush attack in the red zone. 3rd and 6 not working for OSU. Needs to be 3rd and 3 so we have much more options.
had a guy wide open over the middle. Would have been a first down. Mannion goes all Rex Grossman instead
How much worse than Scott can Hunt or anyone else be?
Larry Scott giving up another first down pass.
He’s had a horrible game so far
And the bastard still can’t get a deal done with DirecTV either.
We are going to be worn down again, 4th Q could be ugly
Defense looks gassed to me, so much for altitude prep.
Lol WTf was that D
wow. horrible tackling there. CU’s gonna have the lead at halftime
Add Doctor to the horrible game list
Put Mageo in
Atleast 5 missed tackles by Banker’s D. OSU probably will trail 21-20 at half. Riley should retire.
Flare passes just dicing us up, and nobody tackling. Those outside blocks of theirs are just brutal too.
Seriously Beavs? Just getting gouged left and right. CU looks like the better team
I can’t get over that screen play lol.. It looked like there were snipers shooting down Beaver defenders
They basically just ran the same play over and over on that drive…we couldn’t defend. Prevent D, Bankers favorite.
Doctor speed is overrated, he can’t guard the RB
97 play drive, couldn’t stop any passing play. Larry Scott is murdering us, and the safeties aren’t doing anything either.
And no pressure by the DLine, though they’re throwing a ton of flares and screens so they don’t have time to do anything.
48-25 in plays so far.
Two really bad defensive series…..probably worst of the season. Take away the interception and this game would already be slipping away.
That’s enough for me. Second half adjustments for the Beavs? Not likely.
I thought this game would be close but I thought the Beavs would be (barely) in control of it the entire time and sweat it out at the end. Beavs lost control…CO seems to want it more.
37 seconds left. Watch Riley take a knee.
At least he tried…though a draw or screen would have been a much better play call there.
205 yds passing for CU in the first half.
Really shitty quarter.
Leave 2 TO’s and 30+seconds on the clock; and then tell reporter, “we need to get back to running the ball”………………so f’n Riley!!
Everything going according to plan. Identity in tact.
Riley getting outcoached again by the worst team in the conference. Best coach OSU can get? What a joke!
Riley needs to be FIRED if he loses to the Buffs. He will be the nation’s new worst coach and deservedly so. How many lackluster pathetic showings does he get? Can’t even beat the lowest of the cellar dwellers.
OSU is new cellar program. Thanks for the sh*t product Riley.
The Beavers are who we thought they were and the Buffs aren’t gonna let them off the hook
Will someone in Boulder please bench Roberto Nelson on defense?
I couldn’t help think I’m listening to a Robinson-led team.
Down 1 at the half. We’ll need to throw the ball every down to catch up. Can’t run the ball if you’re behind.
I’ve reached fatigue with Riley ….as a fan I want to see something different in the very near future. With no “non-competitive” teams in the P-12 anymore this could get interesting for Mr.Neat Deal, wins may get hard to come by moving forward.
Has there ever been a player so big that goes down as easily as Hamlet?
D looks like shit. How many off sides so far?
MR will defy reason and think he is in a shoot out and pass on every down. Since we can’t pass block he will go to all seven step drops.
I’ve noticed Smith goes down easy also. Where the hell is Joe Newton when you need him?
Just to make me feel better. It will never happen.
Name some coaching replacement ideas.
How about someone from Coos Bay?
CU has 280 yards of offense.
We need to get that horse to quit hogging the treadmill and have some our defensive players asse’s on that thing.
Mannion goes deep on the first play. Awesome call there Riley
Hamlett WIDE open for the first.
2nd &4 not even a RB on the field…throws a bomb. Wow
We keep throwing deep to our slowest receiver. What kind of brilliant strategy is that?
Mannion looked like that was his only option. That goes back to coaching.
If you don’t use timeouts at the end what do you save them for?
If you get 6 yards on 1st down, is there a rule that says you cant run on 2nd. Dear lord, just chip away and keep the offense on the field for more than a handful of plays
Hamlett can’t get a single yard after contact to save his life. Anybody miss Halahuni?
2nd a 4 after yet another 6 yard run.. let’s throw a low percentage deep ball to richly mullaney??
Can someone tackle Riley and take over play calling??
They drop a million back into zone, we dump it down to the TE for -2 yards, then a bad punt. What has happened to Kostol? He used to pin the ball deep every time; he’s looked pretty bad this season.
Do we have no passes to beat zone? OH WAIT SLANTS DO THAT!
I’m gonna be sick.
I already am
Even the announcers keep babbling about how slow the Beaver receivers are…..it is becoming obvious. Mullaney has nice hands usually, but he’s not the same without Cooks.
You know if the run the ball 4 times in a row and average 2.5 yards, it’s a first down.
Jarmon is fast, Villamon is big, Mullaney is hands, etc. Riley (and Mannion) just aren’t using them right. Remember when everyone thought Bolden missing was the problem? lol
OSU on the ropes. TD here and it’s bedlam
Riley only ran on 12 of 30 plays in the 1st half. That is just a 40% run ratio and based on OSUProf’s study that is firmly in the area where odds to win are starting to seriously nosedive to very unlikely. I saud before game if anything less than 45% OSU would be in position to lose to even the lowly Buffs.
Fact is you can only beat 5-10 percent of Pac-12 games only running it 40% or less. That number has to be 50%+ to win most our games. Riley is an idiot and he only passes more if down 4 or more. Luckily with CU you can get away with it more than just about anyone else but the numbers say we lose if this isn’t atleast 43% by the end of the game. Giving away our talent advantage due to Riley ineptitude.
“Riley out of halftime talked about needing to be more balanced.”
What game is that quote from? Or what year? oh wait, it’s every single one for the last 4 years. Does he have Alzheimers? He keeps forgetting what he says every fucking week.
How the hell can he say that. He calls the f’ing plays
I think he has ADD, not patient enough to run the ball.
Coverage sack. Good job, secondary.
Oh Pollyannas where are youuuuuu
A pass play that wasn’t a 25 yard streak, 3 yard TE cut, or screen? What just happened?
Big run. time to throw 3 times!
THAT’S WHAT YOU GET FOR THROWING ON FIRST DOWN!!
Well, the sack only guarantees more passing plays
Credit to @seanmannion4 for an audible that prefaced @MVPWard’s 27-yard run
Credit to Mike Riley for the shitty play calling @shittymike
Lettuce has been money this year.
Better than chopped salad.
Does Riley just have a huge boner for getting Mannion a passing TD? We get within the redzone and then decide its time for home runs on every play. Has Romaine become our most consistent player suddenly.
Whatever Romaine’s personal problems were, he’s sure kicking the ball well now.
He should be playing safety . Our best tackler.
Romaine is on fire, but what a shitty group of play calls at the 20. RUN THE FUCKING BALL!
Romaine with the FG and Beavs lead 23-21 but passing tendancies increasing. Think it comes down to game management at the end. Riley will show what if anything he has learned.
We’ll take FGs and CU will take TDs
Gavin Andrews has gotten absolutely destroyed today
Are you kidding me?
i have grown to really hate Riley’s coaching ability.
I don’t understand that 3rd and 2. Beavs LB has the guy stopped and nobody comes in to help clean up until the CO line is able to get there and push the receiver forward. So lazy
Isn’t that a penalty? You can’t just push your RB forward with 4 offensive linemen. WTF?
Unless you are Reggie Bush
I think the Refs hate OSU in this one.
Only if you push on your own guy. Pushing the wouldbe tacklers is fine.
Every tackle is from behind.
Larry Scott got lucky
Big play here on 3rd and long.
lucky the beavs didn’t get a roughing the passer penalty there
Fortunate to get that hands to face on CO. They were on the move.
Unbelievably that receiver was open right at the sticks.
Brandon Arnold. Stupid. That’s an ejection
He’s been a huge disappointment.
Time to watch some Giants/Nationals.
I’m still butthurt over the dodgers blowing a 6-1 lead yesterday
They were stealing Kershaw’s pitches, IMO. Everything was squared up and that just doesn’t happen.
Royals and Nationals are playing the best baseball right now. That would be a great WS.
either that or he was tipping his pitches. I for one am tired of the Cards and their bush league bullshit plunking dodger batters. If I’m Greinke, I hit the first batter I face to get the bench warnings out of the way. Unless the cards do it first which wouldn’t surprise me
Just about every time we have a nice return, we have a botched hit into a penalty.
Also, what is “Targeting a blindside player”? He kinda led with his helmet, so I guess that’s a penalty. But I’ve never heard of THAT penalty.
Thank good for our ace special (Ed) teams coach.
Targeting? You cant throw a block anymore
Is that a 1st down for CU or is it Beavs ball still?
Was that really Dockery on the return, why hasn’t he been in at receiver?
RUN THE BALL !!!
kerry eggers (@kerryeggers) tweeted at 3:31 PM on Sat, Oct 04, 2014:
Targeting a blind-side defender? Don’t understand that penalty on Brandon Arnold. What, he’s supposed to make sure the guy sees him?
Get the official Twitter app at https://twitter.com/download
Love when defenders are in on returns. The freshman safety doesn’t know how to block? Shocking!
Run play from Woods works well for 1st down.
1 on 1 coverage on a deep ball and Mullaney loses the battle. Rinse and repeat
Pass happy Riley trying to literally throw this game away. Luckily defensive PI on ugly throw.
I thought the DB pushed off as well. But what do I know
Offense was flowing, then Mannion throws a bomb to destroy that.
He’s just not a very good QB. Sorry.
They should run more draws. Those work since they pass so much.
Damn lucky, really stupid pass. Mannion is brillant?
Nobody ever makes a bad decision. Of course, when you have defenders breathing down your neck and bad play calls, what are you supposed to do, just eat the sack?
All Riley is doing is sending Mullaney deep. Exactly the opposite of his strengths.
Need to get a TD on this drive to take the momentum in the 4th. 3rd and short coming up here. Anyone want to bet if we run or pass? I’ll take Pass for $400 Alex.
Exactly, another FG is asking for trouble.
holy shit balls Riley calls a run for a first down
Good run by Storm. Big 3rd and 2 coming up.
Wish our WR’s could throw a decent block.
Yeah, they’ve blocked a single defender into a bubble screen receiver at least twice. Just shitty blocking.
Commentor says “Oregon State has moved the ball, they just haven’t finished as much as they’d have liked”
Throw into double coverage and its a TD!
Great catch by Smith. He could be a pro TE one day.
Terrible decision by Mannion.
Smith>>>>Hamlett. If he remembers the snap count.
Touchdown Caleb Smith! Beavs back in driver’s seat. Will Defense toughen up?
Smith with an amazing catch, and Mannion throwing into double coverage BUT in the only place his man could make a play.
I’ll advised throw but nice catch by Caleb. Nice to see one of our guys win a contested ball…pretty rare since we lost Cooks.
Ill not I’ll…
You were correct the first time LOL.
Nice play….but against some teams that’s an INT….as a fan I take it…let’s hope they can get out of Boulder alive.
Ward is averaging 10ypc…. maybe we should run him some more?
Banker folding like a cheap tent.
A corpse would make more plays than Larry Scott
post of the day!
F’ing Badgers lose! Riley don’t ruin my perfect weekend.
Beavers are lucky Colorado didn’t go for it on 4th down. No doubt they would have gotten it
All out blitz fails to get to the QB again but Scott makes the sure tacke (don’t know if sure tackle and Scott go together though)
This is obvious to anyone but maybe riley, but they need a long drive with lots of runs… ending in a touchdown…
RUN THE BALL !!!!
Maybe next Reser game the crowd should chant RUN THE BALL!
Let’s see a Beaver team with balls, run the ball down their throats…8 minute drive…TD to put it away.
If this announcer calls us “Oregon” one more fucking time…
Bruce Read paid 500K to cost OSU 10+ yards running it out instead of taking touchback. Stupid!
It pisses me off that guys dont take the touchback. They never get better than 25 yards
Stanfurd blew it
Mullaney on an underneath route? WHAT MADNESS IS THIS????
Beavs throwing from their end of the field is just begging for a pick 6
…and then the stupid fucking sideline streak. To our slowest receiver. What the fuck is wrong with Riley? Can someone ask him why he’d throw streaks to our slowest receiver 10+ times a game?
To open up that 6 yd underneath route on 3rd and 8.
The play calling in this situation borders on bizarre.
Pathetic play calling and decision making by Riley and Mannion yet again
Mannion making some decent play changes and managing the clock better than Riley.
Lol Colorado using their cheerleaders to block the play clock.
Riley finally mans up and calls a smart outside run which Ward deilvers on.
of course Ward gets 3+ yards
WTF the cheerleaders were blocking the play clock? WTF is that?
THIRD DOWN RUN FOR A FIRST!!! Madness again?
Riley is fucking nuts. No rhyme to anything he does.
True run threat opens up nice playaction on 3rd and 2.
Classic Horse 2 Hot Bronco. Classic.
Bolden nice run on the fly sweep.
Ok, we’ve crossed the 30 yard line. Is this where we shit ourselves?
Beautiful blocking on that Fly Sweep.
Wow. Running the ball into the end zone one a 5 min drive.
That late hit no call is total bullshit
Ward walks in! Its called a running game coach! Going for 2?
Now that’s a drive!
Finally a fly sweep.. Good play calling last half of drive
WHAT!? We ran the ball on 1st down in the REDZONE!?
Color me SHOCKED!
THAT was a nice drive. And a helluva block by Ricky Ortiz. See what happens when you mix run/pass????? Riley??????
That was probably the first drive all year that looked normal.
Nice ball by Mannion, dropped by Bolden
Not worth trying to chase points. Good throw but odds are against.
And fucking BOLDEN CAN’T CATCH ANYTHING!!!
Blame his pinky, he couldn’t catch before that either. That dude is fucking garbage. Why isn’t Jarmon playing instead of him?
I’m excited about our WRs. Bolden seems pretty good, I really like Jarmon as well.
Hawkins hasn’t shown much but he’s a true freshman. He has really good speed.
Chris Brown has seemed good in the small amount of time we’ve given him.
QB seems scary, but we just haven’t seen enough of VanderVeen or Del Rio.
Bolden dropping another pass over his shoulder. That should have been jarmon. He’s got the hands to make that catch
Or just ignore Bolden on that one and throw to the wide open Hamlett on an easier play,
Boldens hands are suspect even without bad pinky
Tide lose Okla losing
Figures. Ducks will probably not drop much
They’ll stay at #2
They are number 2
“drop” and “#2” huh huh Beavis
turd burglar huh huh
Zimmerman with the flail at the ball for the win on that 3rd down play
Classic Zimmerman. If he doesn’t intercept it, he doesn’t cover it.
and then gets called for PI
Terrible call, though
Doctor victimized again
No pass rush all day…
Banker with that clueless look on his face again. Stay balanced. Run hard. Don’t take it out of endzone on kickoff!
Bolden better not be fielding the upcoming onside kick
That’s just shit defense…no coverage, no pressure….you have to bring something at this stage.
Nice fail fucking tackling. Classic Beavs from the last 2-3 years.
Zimmerman didn’t PI on that play, but botched coverage plus called for PI PLUS FAILED TACKLE in 3 plays. Least Valuable Player?
Special teams sigh
Jarmon has to save Bruce Read looking like a major goat again.
Jarmon was wide open … When we lose this Mannion and Read And Riley choked late
Wow, OSU doesn’t even know how to cover that kick. This football team looks like it will win, but they are a disaster.
Looks like it will win? Not so fast, my friend!
Very true! No clue why I wrote that.
I’m not so sure we look like we will win. Colorado will get job with plenty of time to score and all timeouts
Atta kid, Jarmon.
Classic coaching blunder.
Good thing we have all that NFL coaching experience on our staff!
Jarmon saves the day. Horrible ST play call
Can I have some of Read’s money?
Thank god for Jarmon….Jesus
Reed is useless
Jarmon plays with heart.
You cannot be snapping the ball with any more than 5 sec on play clock now!!
what kinda call is that for special teams? Dumb.
Shoot yourselves in the foot due to over compensation of fears.
Here is where play action has some value. They have timeouts anyway and are stacked for the run.
Too gimicky from Riley on a key down.
shittin themselves… too much pressure against a crappy team…
Classic us. They just put 10 in the box, nobody would be able to create separation, and THEN we pick up a penalty.
Holy shit we’re going to lose!
classic Riley. He coaches based on fear.
Didn’t it look like Jarmon’s defender had fallen down on that replay?
We may lose this one and if so Riley deserves ultimate heat.
Callan on sidelines: “a lot of confusion here on the sidelines” HA HA HA!!!!
Did I say Reed was useless? Wilson saying end over end kick was coaching decision
Jarmon was open over th middle, his guy fell down
WE HAVE THE WORST COACHING STAFF IN ALL OF FOOTBALL
These fucking punts. Kostol again with the jank kick. What is wrong with him?
See above, by design
wow…. way to just totally play to lose…
I cant watch. This is just a terrible way to close out a team when you have a 12 pt lead
Johnson lucky he didn’t get flagged for clapping his hands over the tackled runner
Huge blitz, great coverage by Nelson. As usual.
Nelson is playing like a beast
Nelson on Spruce today is the main reason tye Beavs will escape. Our star defender outplayed their star receiver.
He stripped Spruce on that last dropped catch
The only time I remember Spruce catching the ball is when he lined up against Scott.
Nelson is a stud….I didn’t realize Scott was so bad though.
The commish needs to stay with his weekday job.
Wow, terrible win. Feeling good about my prediction. 4-1 on the year now. Eat it BION
Riley laughing like a hyena on the sideline….almost demented!
Hahaha. Something wrong with that guy
Colorado’s coach is a lunatic
The 20 year old QB has to calm his coach down. What a fucking douchebag. I didn’t have any feelings about Colorado until now, but that guy is a toolbag. Stop fucking crying and freaking out, your kids have better poise than you do.
What happened? I turned it off.
Colorado’s coach chased down the refs immediately after the last kneel-down and was whining and crying and bitching to them, them running and screaming elsewhere, and his QB has to wrap him up and try to calm him down. He said 2 words to Riley during their meet-up midfield, no handshake, then ran off.
Just a classless little baby.
It’s the PAC 12 dude. Get used to crappy calls. It’s our identity.
Not good. We win, but that bonehead play where no one was back on the Colorado kickoff is pure Riley. Good God.
And….most top ranked teams lose, and UO is given new life to get in the playoffs…. yikes.
UofO will lose next week
Pure Riley, with an assist from Bruce Read!!
UO lost to an unranked team they’re done. DONE!
You know you’re a real Beaver fan when your team wins the game and you still turn off the TV in disgust!
Ha, Riley on the difference in the 2nd half. “well, ya know, running the ball helps a little bit”
Anyone know what McIntyre was so butthurt about? The non pi call on Nelson?
He lost to MR. Wouldn’t you be pissed?
Yeah I guess McIntyre doesn’t think that’s a neat deal
McIntyre is confused because he has apparently yet to realize he had better officiating when he was in the WAC.
It finally dawned on me….Riley is starting to remind me of Chauncey Gardner in “Being There”. He is a master at saying simple things that people mistake for brillance. I would like to run the ball more, but that means we will pass less.
Make that “some” people!
“Some” as in the media and assorted Pollyannas?
Colorado is improving. Won’t be long before they’re more competitve in the Pac. The home field altitude advantage is helpful too.
Weasel essential said that none of our receivers are all that good and Smith is the guy they need to feature. He said Smith reminds him of Todd Heath.
who’s Todd Heath?
They named a candy bar after him.
As stated above… you know you are a real Beaver fan when you feel disgusted after a win. Could agree more. Isn’t Colorado the whipping post of the pac-12? Shouldn’t we have sounding kicked their ass. I’m not even sure I feel lucky we got a win here. Coaching is getting uglier and uglier every year.
So pissed I’m typing like a toddler.
Me: the Beavs won.
My wife: big deal, they beat Colorado. Call me when they beat the fucking ducks!
Your wife knows what’s up
Now the Riley has met Ralphie, do you think he rides off into the sunset?
LOL. Nebraska guard falls on his ass leaning back in his stance. Never saw that before.
If the Cougars win tonight they’ll be 1st in the North.
Riley said in the post game interview on KEX that “you need to get through losing to win”…..huh???
Old age sounds terrifying.
Good thing is you’ll probably just ride your bike around and smile and chew gum and not know that you’ve gone full retard.
Didnt he also refer to Victor Bolden as Victor Butler? Dementia is setting in…..pretty soon he will be snacking on napkins, … without drinking. But Parker will straighten him out….
Two things: (1) The beavs haven’t had any kind of a run game since Quizz left. The question is why. (2) I think the beav’s defense right now might be better than Oregon’s. Which probably isn’t saying too much.
Looks like MeChicken will have a new coach for sure for the Beav’s visit to the Big House.
They got royally screwed by the refs late in the game.
WSU 90 yard TD. Leach playing for 1st place. Where are all the anti-Leach guys?!??!?
how the hell they lose to rutgers and nevada?
Are you talking about aunt Patty? She’s getting licked by dykes right now
Aunt Patty knows how to dish out a few licks too. But lets not start saying Leech is great now that he has a slim lead over Cal. Thats like saying Riley is great for beating CU today. All 4 teams are on the same tier.
I’m not watching cal/wsu on tv but have been checking it on game tracker from time to time. What the fuck is going on? There’s a touchdown every 3 or 4 plays. Both teams are throwing haymakers for 1st place in the Pac north.
Basically. Cal has returned back to back kickoffs.
And Halliday has 562 passing yards with 4 minutes left in the 4th. I think thats the most I’ve seen in a game and there a ton of game left
Now at 625. Ncaa record is 716. He will shatter that tonight
ASU pulls an unbelievable comeback vs ASU. Scores 2 TDs with about 2 minutes left- and that’s WITHOUT recovering either onside kick.
Their backup QB throws for over 500 yds and 5 TDs, including taking the team on his back in those last 2 minutes.
Our backup QB just recently learned to throw a spiral LOL.
USC isn’t a good team, which is why everyone was so upset.
agreed. they’re average at best
er ASU comeback vs USC.
Crazy finish. Asu had another touchdown with 3 minutes left that went for 70 yards.
wow. 3 hail mary’s in the last 3 weeks. Arizona, USC against us last weekend, now ASU.
Zack Greinke pitches a 2 hit shutout thru 7 against the Cards. He was nails tonight. Hope the bullpen can hold it. And the Vagiants beat the Nats in 18 to go up 2-0 heading home. WTF? I’d love a dodgers/vagiants NLCS.
Fail. 4 pitches from Howell and we’re tied. Dodgers bullpen will be their undoing. Complete garbage
Matt Kemp saves their asses with an 8th inning HR.
Dylan Wynn post game interview. Interesting guy
He’d make a terrible pro, but he might make a good analyst. Entertaining.
I like how candid Wynn is……stark contrast to Riley and his cliched babbling.
Holiday has 625 yards and 5 TDs with 2 min left in the 3rd quarter. That’s nuts
And goff has nearly 400 yards on less attempts. Those kickoff returns kept the ball out of his hamds, otherwise he be keeping pace with Halliday
Halliday with 625 passing yds going into the 4th, 91 yds away from ncaa record. Cal consecutive kickoff returns for td’s #onlyinthepac12
Not sure why Utah didn’t try for the 1st down there, left :34 on the clock?
Utah almost blew that, ucla misses game winning fg, only to a second chance after a running into thekicker penalty. Then miss again.
Damn. I should have stayed up.
And the yewts pull it out over the fuclas.
Crazy weekend of college football.
Hundly was sacked 10 times tonight. Mannion is going to get killed a week from Thursday.
Isnt it this Thursday?
No, Beavers have 10 days off until the 16th. Its the classic bye before Thursday which gives you a bye and a half on each side.
Nice, my week night just opened up
Everything in the Pac-12 today is just crazy. Too bad most of the country isn’t awake to see it.
HAHA ultimate coug’d it. Missed an effective PAT to lose the game.
Man, this was an incredible slate of games tonight, ASU-USC, UTAH-UCLA, CAL-WSU. Can’t ask for anything better than that…
19 seconds and pass hapoy aunt patty doesnt pass or 3rd down? Kicks it on third down, miss??
Couldnt trust a guy who had just broken the ncaa record to throw on 3rd down???
She must have been worn down from the licking she was taking from Dykes.
Let’s see where is Gameday gonna go? It looked like it would be Pasadena, but Oregon and UCLA both lost so it’s probably either:
Auburn @ Mississippi State (giving angry more fodder to use against ESPN)
TCU @ Baylor
That’s my guess
Oh Patty, that was the most epic Coug it. You’ve outdone yourself. Arghhhh matey!
Aunt Patty will be taking out the shortstop in todays softball game. JB
wow. chip shot FG. Miss. Everyone above called it. Classic coug’d it
Been watching a lot of pac12 football. I honestly wonder if Beavs will win another game this year. Our receivers can’t break free. We are slow. Everyone else has a mobile qb. We have Riley. Etc etc.
Every win here on out will be a surprise.
There’s also some unimpressive defenses still to play. It could be interesting.
We certainly know that Cal and WSU can be thrown on. Those should both be entertaining shoot outs.
Regarding our receiver woes, I think we’ve got some real potential between Jarmon, Villamin, Dockery, and Boldin. If a couple of those guys make some major strides we could be seeing a much better passing game.
Mullaney will not be a big play guy. Having him at flanker is a joke. We need a wr1 to develop so mullaney can capitalize as a possession guy.
Hawkins looks like a ultimate waste of a redshirt. If we see anything out of him, it won’t be this year.
I was pulling for WSU. I really hate Cal.
You give up 56 and 59 points and walk away with 2 wins….unbelievable. It should catch up with them soon.
I like Cal. We beat them on a regular basis even when they’re decent.
So how many of you were cracking up at the One on One commercial on Pac-12 Networks saying Mark Helfrich and Mike Riley have all the answers?
Two skinny bald men talking ball..
Will they be touring the Eugene and Corvallis campuses on a two seat bicycle? I might tune in for that.
A couple of Oregon basketball players tried to (Langston Morris-)Walk(er) out of a store without paying last month. Didnt hit the news till today. Altman again hiding his criminals from the public eye.
duck athletes in trouble with the law? Color me shocked. Win at costs. Guess I’m more surprised this came to light in the media and wasn’t swept under the rug
No worries…..Altman has 7 more questionable transfers on speed dial. The shelves will be replenished!
I don’t track the graduations of the Oregon players but the constant turnover on their squad should ultimately affect their NCAA progress rating (can’t remember the acronym). If you have too many transfers/non-grads in a four year window you actually get banned from post-season play. It would seem to me they must be getting close to that line.
That’s why their handling of the rape case last year was even more controversial. They knew the players were involved and being investigated, but neglected to hold them out of post season play, which made them qualify as a full time student in that calculation. If they had been banned from the program prior to the end of the season, it would have negatively affected the team’s standing and they would have had NCAA sanctions thrown at them.
Then, after the players were counted, they decided to kick the players out of school. Their handling of that was self serving for the athletic department.
Leach totally botched that end of the game. I don’t like Riley but Leach is far from perfect.
Hilarious that the announcers say they Coug’d it.
So… can any pollyanna out there please explain our last kick return to me? Why is it that those who “that’s why he’s paid to be a football coach… and you’re not” are doing what they’re doing?
I also wonder why our best route runner and hands is running fly pattern after fly pattern.
Gameday going to Mississippi State next weekend. 3 SEC locations in a row!!
Might as well rename the show “The FSU and SEC tour”. They’ve already visited the sites that FSU has been playing at twice this year, and I imagine they’ll be there the following week for the Notre Dame v. FSU game.
Don’t really care.
Fist bump…yawn, me either. JB
i can’t even remember the last time I watched Gameday….I prefer my ham with eggs on Saturday mornings.
I cruise through at about 6am because there’s nothing else on. But I just look at how big the crowd is. Once I see the Wazzu flag fly, I know ESPN has Coug’d it.
Mannion was shown near the end of the game with a headset on and I never saw Garrett on the sideline. Did I miss Garrett or was he upstairs?
He was checking to see if there was an In-N-Out near Folsom Field.
I was at the game. Dare I say that it looked as if OSU benefited from the refereeing? I had a good view of the pass-interference call on Colorado’s big interception and I must say, it didn’t look all that interfering, but . . . luck of the beavers?
It didn’t look like it live, but on the replay shown from the ref’s angle you could see the push-off with the arm fully extending in order to get large separation.
The play CU was upset about with Nelson hand fighting then knocking the ball away in the end could have been called. But that hand fighting/contact on routes no-call was a consistent no-call all game long and benefited CU more than it did OSU.
Good 2 have your take on the refereeing. Don’t try to convince CU fans, however.
And the SEC west has 4 teams in the top 7. The goal is to have all 4 playoff spots held by SEC teams at the end of the year I think
I will at least give the AP poll credit for doing what the Coaches poll didn’t: Putting undefeated TCU over the team they beat (Oklahoma) and putting undefeated Arizona over the team they beat (Oregon)
I watch the game again and noticed some things.
First quarter we established a run game. And we went up 14 – 0.
Can’t remember if it was 1st qtr or 2nd but Alexander made a huge interception off a very poor judgement throw. In the end this interception probably won us the game.
Second quarter Riley abandons the run game. Mannion looked good but no open receivers. He was checking around to see who was open, no one was. He had to thread in all his throws. Our receivers can’t get separations, to slow. Our defense loosened up and gave a lot of space as the game went on. Going into halftime we trailed 21-20.
The announcers continuously called our receiving core slow. Our run after catch is horrible.
We had 48 seconds until halftime. 1st play takes about 20 seconds, Mannion gets sacked. We have 2 time outs, Riley doesn’t use them but decides to walk into locker room 1 point behind. I just don’t get that thinking.
Second half, typical Riley comes out slinging. Run game put on hold. Our 2 injured DT’s (thanks to cheap shots from USC) is evident as CU has plenty of time to throw and was running the ball well. Our defense held their own though when it counted most.
Riley sticks with air raid for the most part. Mannion very often has to check down on his throws, no one is open for all Riley’s continuous deep balls.
Refs really sucked and many no calls in CU’s favor. Pac-12 Refs are preschoolers.
End of the 3rd Riley finally brings in a couple run plays… big gains. 3rd and 4 after successful runs Riley has Mannion go for the bomb. Ball was intercepted but a PI call that was a gift to us. Mulhaney again no separation down the field to slow. Storm is a different running back this year. Both him and Ward came to play this year… Riley just won’t allow it.
4th qtr starts with lucky TD throw by Mannion to Smith who was double covered.
CU has the slowest hurry-up in the Pac-12 but everyone can see the Banker effect as CU moves the ball well.
4th qtr Riley still throws throws throws. Mannion has to throw to slow covered receivers. CU cheerleader blocking play clock, Mannion has to burn a time out. With a little over 5 minutes left Riley finally keeps the ball on the ground with runs and flysweep and wouldn’t you know, we score a TD.
Failed 2 point try (perfect throw right into Bolden’s hands – dropped – Bolden dropped about 3 catch-able balls today). CU takes ball off kick at around the their 20. Our D plays real loose and CU chews down the field. Another bad ref call against Zimmerman for pass interference. CU scores next play. 36-31 OSU.
Very poor coaching decision not to have anyone in back flied on kick off. We got lucky and took ball over on the 10 yardline. CU calls timeout after 2 yard gain and Riley looks lost as to what play to give Mannion. We failed to move the ball. Forced to punt with 2 minutes left, poor series followed by poor punt, CU takes over with 45 yards to the endzone. A no-call on Nelson brings up 4th down and we take over to knee the clock out.
This game shouldn’t have been close. It was because Riley refused to run the ball.
Mannion has the tools, and is even more mobile this year, but he has only tools to throw to at this point… man, if only we still had Cooks.
Our running game is 100% better this year, but Riley is to much of a tool to use it properly.
This game was won on a poor decision throw by CU’s QB and a poor decision throw on Mannion’s part but it resulted in a great catch by Smith for a TD.
This season could really be ugly for us unless Riley is born again into a run game mind set and unless our receivers somehow increase their speed. Didn’t feel good about this win against probably to worst team in the Pac-12. No more gimmes the rest of the season.
Maybe adjust the game plan and routes to play to the strengths of the receivers that are here now? Simple Jack just can’t get it through his head that Cooks is gone and won’t be back.
Passing muh-muh-makes me happy!
Good observations, man.
Riley, BORN AGAIN?! Dude, that aint happinin’. Give Riley a break….he actually retired several years ago, just hasnt made it official. That’s so’s he keeps getting that great viewing position on the sidelines.
Seriously, signs point to him being pretty disassociated come game time. How could he not have a receiver back on that …maybe…onside kick?
One wonders if he forbids anyone from pointing out the obvious to him during a game. Just have one assistant who listens or watches the broadcast, and yell out when the announcers start wailing about calling time out, or no one back. Even if you have dementia you can compensate for it by letting those around you know to jump in if you start zoning out.
Could it be possible Riley has a med Px for weed, and is in fact zoned out, come game time? Seems like that could explain the continuing lapses. Got to be something going on.
Is this you Whiskey Soaked Napkin?
my brother from another mother
I was standing right next to that idiot when he was doing it.
Of course there’s no Natty for the ducks. That dude drank it all.
well, him and Larry Eustachy
Gina tweets, “Latest in the Kyle Peko saga, Mike Riley says on conference call if Peko passes a class that ends Tuesday, could play against Utah.”
You can’t make this stuff up! But, OSU Sports Info staff, or someone, seems to be trying!
Online ballroom dancing?
don’t lose any sleep over it. The only thing Peko is probably qualified to pass is a joint
Wrong, he usually bogarts it. Ummmm, so I’ve heard.
Do you buy that a head coach would not know exactly what is going on with a situation like this every step of the way or are there rules that prevent them being too involved?
This is a good question and something I would really like to know as well.
Ok, well that does it for me god damn it! So there I was at a shit kid birthday and me and only ONE other guy there were wearing Beaver orange so I struck up a conversation about the win over Colorado and how it really seemed like we had some things clicking finally on both sides of the ball. Then this guy Jared was talking about wanting to watch NFL games because of all the Beaver players who are MAJOR role players and faces of franchises from coast to coast. Then this little shit was listening to us said “I didn’t know the Beavers had ANY players in the NFL, wow that’s cool!” I couldn’t believe my GOD DAMN EARS because we basically dominate the NFL as far as colleges I think besides Alabama and Pitt?? I told that little mother F’er that there was AT LEAST 50 F’ing STARTERS n the league. Honestly, if it was my kid I would have kicked his sorry, floppy hair ass to the MOON for saying shit like that but can you guys help me out here, I really couldn’t think of anyonebidesbesides Cooks, Browner, and Anderson, and Quizz and obviously the HOF er Jackson. What about Afalava or Butler? And WTF is up with Poyer?!? I know he’s a starter but where? Seems like they aren’t showing many of his highlights but not sure because maybe people don’t throw his way too often? East coast bias?!?!? GO BEAVS!!!!!!!!!
Duck humor is soooooo boring.
How could an uck write a paragraph that long? (even if it should be broken up into several)
and without crayons?
Who says he wrote it without crayons?
Note: A few strategic paragraphs can help improve the readability of even the most incoherent ramblings. You lost me at “shit kid”.
Zack Kline to date has 6 td passes and 5 interceptions.
Lighting up the JC ranks!
Looks like football teams this past weekend reminded pollsters and “the committee” that competition and play are more important than opinion and ranking….
And OSU looks to have pulled out an unsatisfying win that nobody really cared about….oh Riley, the security of institutional complacency and league and national irrelevancy….
