No analysis for meaningless games, as our time is better spent elsewhere.

I like the Huskies in this one. Something like 31-23 seems about right.

    Amtrak road trip with my son to this game! The outcome of the game has no bearing on my enjoyment of the trip. Time spent with a loved one, making new friends, and experiencing new places and great food is what this weekend is all about for me.
    I hear Northlake Tavern has good pizza so we’re gonna hit that place for sure.
    Go Beavs!

        Tailgating at UW is only worse in Provo. In the past we’ve found private parties at houses near the stadium but all my contacts have now graduated.
        We’ve also wandered the stadium lot in search of Beaver-friendly ‘gates, and while you’re sure to score a beer and some good-natured ribbing for wearing orange, none of these parties are fun enough to return.
        Rumor has it the “Girls Gone Wild” film crew will have a presence on a boat in the bay so we’ll see if I can get my 24 year old son some looks.

            Our plan on Saturday is to wake up whenever and grab some some cheap food after dropping a few bills tonight at Little Darlings. Then before kickoff we’ve had a suggestion that Northlake Tavern has killer pizza so we’ll hit that then walk or Uber it to the stadium and see if we can find Beaver friendlies.
            I haven’t looked but I’m sure stubhub has tix on the cheap. That’s almost always better than trying to find tix at the game.

    Watching the K-State-WVU game. Bill Snyder is such a good coach. If there’s a coach who truly does more with less, it’s Bill Snyder. He’s on his way to more than likely at least a 9 win season and competing for a big 12 title. He’s basically all the things media members thinks Mike Riley is. They’re always so well coached and execute the gameplan.

          Mutual cowering by both at best. Remember it was Nikegon who killed the deal because they wanted to play LSU at Jerryworld. In order to do that, they had to give up a home game. But they had to make up a home game the next year in order to get the accounting right, so their only road game had to be scratched.

          Guess where that road game was supposed to be.

          That was the front end of a home and home, and Nikegon also did not want to just swap the home and home dates. But they did want KSU to come the next year for the one-off. KSU was having issues with scheduling already because they suddenly had to go to a nine game conference slate and had a bunch of non-con games that were scheduled as much as six years earlier. So that was a highly unrealistic request if there is no home gate and game for the home crowd.

          So KSU just told them to stuff the contract somewhere else, and Nikegon fans started wailing about, “Ohhhh… they’re so scared… whaaaaaa!!!”

          As it turns out, it made a later boring match-up in the bowl game a little less boring.

    Peterson blows a game by bad clock management and their media is all over him. Riley does pretty much the same, and our media kisses his ass….

    A difference in expectations. They want and expect a winning program. We are happy with … a program. Get a team on the field in uniform and its all good. No wonder Riley likes cruise control…

    OSU spent 24 hours trying to excavate the annihilation’s root cause. Then it soldiered forward, intent on recovering for the Civil War. To this day, defensive coordinator Mark Banker said, no one knows why the Beavers didn’t show up to play that day.

    Really Banker?

    Lance Leipold of Wisconsin-Whitewater has shown his interest in the job, according to a couple of sources with knowledge of the situation. He’s coached the Warhawks to a 104-6 record in eight seasons, including a 10-0 mark this fall.

          Don’t sell Montana short… which I’m sure you’re not doing, of all people.

          But Montana has a great atmosphere for football. It’s the only show in town, and the people love it enough to care to a high degree.

          The same is true in Fargo. They expect NDSU to be number one at the start of the season. They expect them to win the championship. And they expect one of their players to win the Payton award. It’s not like they woke up when all of a sudden this Bohl guy came onto the scene. There’s a long line of successful coaches on several levels dating back to the 60’s.

    The Beavs offensive line is outmatched by the UW front 7. UW will be pinning their ears back. Counter punching is their best strategy. Draws and screens and swing passes to the edges. Maybe a roll out here and there. They haven’t done that in a while.

    Who will UW try to take out this year? It was Wheaton previously. I’m guessing Woods and Villamin receive some questionable shots to try and hurt them or intimidate them.

    Beavs have to be un-Beav-like and when hit in the mouth, hit back. Not cheaply, but hard.

    If Brown can break through the first line of UW’s defense, his speed will

        My thoughts as well. The Beavs seem to follow Riley and don’t hit back, let alone trade cheap shots. One of Riley’s many shortcomings.
        Only chance for payback that I see involves the combo of Bray and Wynn, they both approach the game with a warriors attitude. Perhaps if the questionable cheap shots are obvious enough we’ll see some retribution. Not holding my breath.
        There is this possibility; Petersen has kicked some of the most likely suspects off the team, maybe that cuts the chances and we see a clean game, ….maybe.

        Peterson’s teams have had a rep for taking cheap shots. I thought this was a means – to some degree – to compensating for having less talent.

        The teams could play disciplined football in terms of sticking to their assignments (like when they shut down UO/Blount), and I really like that about his teams. But then on top of that there was some cheapness to intimidate or whatever.

        I expect it to emerge this weekend in Seattle as they are striving for bowl eligibility and Riley’s teams don’t respond to this kind of attack.

        Woods has been running impressively hard as of late; his 35-yarder against ASU was a thing of beauty, the best run of the night. He’d better be prepared for not just taking hits, but delivering them on the end of his runs.

        I’d like to see Haskins get the opportunity to deliver punishment too. Like Jack said, not every run has to gain a lot of yards to be effective…

      …a welcome addition to the backfield. And let Haskins go hit somebody if needed. He doesn’t need the ball.

      As you can tell, I think the Beavers have to be aggressive and take the fight to UW and then not back down. Not in character, but likely necessary this weekend.

          I think this is a winnable game not despite our past, but because of it. I would have thought it was a trap game if our team played to its talent. But multiple game schemes have seen to that.

    Don’t see Riley getting back to back wins over decent competition. Game will have more than a handful of moments to be won but Pass Happy Mike will revert to game losing habits. More heat was taken off after last week than what is deserved. Barring Riley making a series of atleast a few pretty goid decisions in the 2nd half, this most likely goes down as a loss.

    That would make for 12 losses in the last 14 conference games. Gets you fired at over 95% of P5 programs. Prove me wrong Riley. But I see Riley submediocrity continuing. Rather we reinvent and go for the rejuvenation being seen under Tinkle. At bare minimum Read has to go this offseason and spend that 500K on a recruiting ace.
