I’m still going with the Beavs in this one on the idea Riley learned from last week (ha ha!) and gets his play makers like Jarmon, Brown, and Villamin more reps. Probably wishful thinking, and this game will more likely come down to whether OSU’s defense can slow a good Cal offense. OSU’s offense matches up well vs Cal so I expect 30 something points.

    We have seen many times that expecting Riley &co to do something rational or obvious goes without a positive result.

    So I expect the same muddled thinking, slow ingame reactions, bad clock management, poor play selection, etc….

    Cal is beatable. Maybe Riley will choose this game to care enough…

    Riley wants 6 wins. A bowl game is the expectation set explicitly and implicitly by his contract structure. People respond to incentives.

    I think Riley is all-in on any remaining game where we have a reasonable shot, until we hit the magic 6. Then we’ll revert to dinosaur mode.

    That said, Riley all-in does not guarantee a win. Losing out would not shock me. I think the two most likely scenarios are:

    Beat CAL and WSU. Lose the rest OR
    Beat CAL and lose to WSU. WIn some other upset game down the stretch, where we’re a heavy underdog and the opponent disrepects us.

    I call this a 6-6 season. And like Tedford’s last few years, we’ll win enough games to have a reasonable record (on paper) to which supporters will rally, but all wins will be against bad teams and we will be uncompetitive against good teams.

    Riley likely shits himself again. Cal will have reasonable offensive production but Oregon St stalls out a couple more times and on the clutch. Get your pitchforks and torches out and don’t tolerate this awful product. Riley is in a downward slump that will keep happening in most games until he is gone. Lose tonight to a bad team he is supposed to beat and this program is spinning down the toilet in Riley’s shit until he disappears.

    A loss tonight seals DeCareLess not being around to further f*ck OSU past 2016. He would be done. That is worth alot more to Oregon State moving forward than maybe getting a who cares bowl that means we will have that many more losses to be force fed in the future under an underperforming and mistake prone Riley in obvious decline.

    TCU game shows why being pass happy is a dumb OSU strategy in the vast majority of games against decent teams. All West Virginia or teams have to do is hold just enough to make completion very difficult to near impossible and 2/3 of the time the refs don’t call it. Amazingly they played good D, got the ball back and made long FG to win at the buzzer.

    Look for Heismannion to be sacked 5 times tonight and Riley gets too pass happy again because some aren’t that far from being completed but aren’t. Wake me up when Riley & BDC are gone and OSU is ready to strive for something more. Riley’s inability in all games that might make anyone take notice is dreadful. Seen the same old script in loss after loss but he changes nothing.

    Won’t travel to see this team anymore and there are thousands more tonight not attending that are voting with their wallets. Its the best hope we have to wrap this farce up in the next couple years and move on. Hip Hip Horrific!

      Had a friend put in a bet for me at Caesar’s. Took the Moneyline on Cal for $200. If Riley screws the pooch like usual I will earn $330 in profit. Also put $110 on the Over 64.5 and will profit another $100 if right. By not being a blind apologist like Goe, I think I got a good shot at $430 profit at end of night but only risking $310.

      Figure Riley is reliable for 5 false starts, a delay of game or two, running it out of endzones for lost yards, poor clock management, and will put too much on Mannion. So yeah add five sacks to the mishaps. This bet and Riley’s bad coaching are gonna buy daddy a new HDTV!

      I just like the Ducks to get enough losses each year to quiet the “natty chatter” from their arrogant fans. Unfortunately with the playoffs, it looks like it will take two losses to keep them out of the conversation, so I’ll be rooting for one more loss. I don’t abide by this cheer for the state of Oregon bullshit.

      Might be fantasy, but it would be nice to see Stanford score on that first possession and then see if their D has made any adjustments. Duck receivers are running wide open, they have to get more pressure on Mariota. Duck defense has not stopped Stanford, if the Cards had a slightly better QB they could be ahead.

    The most annoying thing to me about watching this Oregon game is the reminder of how easily we had the “black out” theme stolen from us within our own state. I still can’t believe how quickly BDC caved to the PC police on that one. Instead we get “bold in black” aka wear-whatever-you-want-while-our-rivals-make-a-marketing-campaign-out-of-the-color (shade?)-we’ve-worn-for-decades.

    On that CAL TD beavs audibled into a zone pass protection. Also, Larry Scott does not go to the ball at all on curl routes. He notices the WR not near him and as he turns around the ball is thrown to that WR and Scott has to wait to make a play in order to not be called for a penalty. Aka, he’s not a very good DB.

    I can forgive Murphy cuz he is on defense, but Villamin has GOT to catch that that.

    How often does the Banker defense always seem a half step or half arm away from sacking the qb? #sameold

      Along the lines of what could have been…Mannion had a lot of promise as a freshman. His sophomore year pre-injury he played the best football of his career. Since that injury he has never been the same. It’s like the whole injury/QB carousel permanently damaged his confidence.

      0 yard pass in the flat on 4th and 2 sealed the loss, so it’s probably the poopy play of the game.

        Winner. I went back and watched them and it was ugly. Throwing it away is fine but not lame ducking it. Mannion was already 11 yards behind the line of scrimmage and still farting around. I like Angry’s as a runner up as that series also was bad. Mannion took a 10 yard sack on 2nd and 6. You can’t do that. A hard Chris Brown run or draw would have been wiser. Riley never properly factors in what can go wrong when teams predict you will pass when pressured and pin their ears back. Riley even died with the pass trying to get 2 yards.

    We are SOOOO far away from where I thought we would be this season. I was expecting big things from Mannion, but I guess we’ll have to settle for the Pac12 record (by default) for passing yards and maybe we can still ruin the Ducks season or someone. Injuring Mariota or one of those fashion show queers from Eugene will have to do for remaining goals for this season.

    I suppose Riley believed this team would “gel” half-way into the season, as Riley’s more successful teams have done in the past, salvaging the season from a few disastrous early losses, finishing up at 7-5 or 8-4 and a trip to some minor bowl game, which would be a “success” in Riley’s world. Problem is, this team shows no sign of “gelling.” If anything, the opposite appears to be happening. One reason why might be the talent level. They don’t have the same kind of players nor the depth they’ve had across the board on both sides of the ball. Plus it might well be the case that college football has passed Riley by and he hasn’t kept up with the evolution of the game.

      I think that in terms of physical attributes and ability, height, weight, speed, this team has better athletes than OSU used to get in the pat, but it might as well be Kragthorpe and his crew airing it out and getting beat most weekends.

      This team has little to no chance of gelling; the senior QB and LBs are not providing the leadership, the coaching staff sure isn’t, fundamentals of tackling and blocking are breaking down again…

      Do NOT expect a competitive CW like last year where OSU discovered it could run the ball. I don’t see any wins on the calendar unless WSU can’t recover from the loss of it’s starting QB.

      That play stood out to me as well, as it shows how thoroughly he has been coached not to scramble, but on that play- with no other choice but get hit- it showed he could scramble a little. So this falls back to Riley, who has clearly outlawed scrambling even when an easy first down seems a short stroll away.

    Caleb Smith… I can’t remember a game where he wasn’t penalized. When Mannion throws an interception he gets pounded on by people. That is going to happen when you are airing out the ball 53 million times (even though Storm was averaging 8.7 yards per carry). The bad guy in this game for me was Caleb Smith. Riley needs to sit his butt on the bench.

    Closer look at the numbers:
    http://www.oregonlive.com/beavers/index.ssf/2014/11/taking_a_closer_look_at_number_5.html

    0: It was a tough outing for tight end Caleb Smith. The Oregon State junior was flagged for a false start, a personal foul and unsportsmanlike conduct, and he dropped a first-quarter pass. He also notched zero catches.
