Yawn.

Maybe Riley figures out a way to use Chris Brown now, since he didn’t know how to use three backs (simply saying “go on the field, Chris Brown” was too difficult for Riley, apparently). And this is his last chance at a bowl, though I don’t think Riley will coach the entire contract so that’s meaningless in terms of extension. Can Mannion fool scouts and raise his draft stock vs a so so defense? These might be the only intriguing reasons to tune in.

31-23 Washington

    I keep hearing how good Shaq Thompson is, so I’ve been interested to see him. I dont think the Huskies will bring the house when blitzing since their D-line is good enough to pressure Mannion without any help. Beavs will have trouble breaking long runs vs the Huskies and the passing game just isnt goot enough to put up enough points this week. Defense will need to keep the field short for the Beavs to have a shot.

      Huskie defense brings the weakside linebacker against all opponents. Beavers do not get senior discount.

    Not meaningless in terms of buyout though. I expect Poopy Riley returns for this one. 2 of 14 in last Pac-12 games is still really awful. If they win then they deserve an at-large bowl but Petersen would have a ton of heat with a loss to a declining Riley so the Huskies most likely do enough to win. I am more interested if it is a relatively focused OSU effort or turns uglier. I can see the Beavs losing this by 10+ if pass happy Mikey reverts to losing habits. Riley almost always shits himself when it matters in Seattle.

      Dude, they arent going to buy out Riley either way. He’ll retire before that happens. 1 extra year on this contract is moot at this point.

    I think we see an inspired effort by Riley today, this game means over a million bucks to him. He will not retire while on contract. He doesn’t believe he’s a quitter and will see his commitments out to their painful end. Either fired or runs out of contract, so this game means bucks. He’s got his grandkid’s financial well being to consider. Would you give up on a millions? Neither will he. Inspired coaching today, maybe the players respond well too. I’m guessing a good game to watch, outside politics not considered

      Well I think he’s sick and looking shot, so I don’t see him coaching much longer due to health reasons. If he’s healthy he’ll milk the contract.

        He said in that 1080 interview he doesnt really think about retirement and feels like he has more energy for coaching now than he ever has, but when asked how he’ll know whem its time to retire, he said something about when his wife tells him it’s time. So now we know, we need to direct our bitching at her, not him, if we want to get things moving.

      Unless a miracle happens, and Riley regains his early career winning season ways, Riley WILL retire. Why? For the simple reason he isnt stupid. He keeps losing in conference and each season further tarnishes his legacy record. He is going to see that, and realize he must retire, just to be well remembered.

      Gentleman Jim Wilson with the common sense suggestion that Riley call two plays in the huddle, 1 for the first down and the next ready to go as soon as the sticks are set. If the first fails you still are in the same situation for the punt.

        Often TO’s are required to kibitz with the very special Bruce Read; his wisdom is so very valuable! On other occasions I’m sure time is needed for Riley to review the plans of Garrett and working out a way to relay them to the O.
        I’ve stopped trying to figure out Riley’s TO methods.

    Could be a one possession game if Riley kicks the FG instead of going for it on 4th and 3. UW will probably start the second half with a TD and the Beavers will fold like a tent.

Wells would have had this team atleast 7-5 and possibly 8-4 this year. Anywhere from Vegas to Holiday Bowl. Riley is main reason for another losing season. This team not making a bowl is plain due to poor coaching.

    So let’s take a quick look around the Pac. ASU is up, USC trending back up and will soon have more schollies (though will be capped by Sark), UA is up. Cal is trending up and competing. WSU is sporadically competitive, nearly upset the Ducks, and has incoming talent. Cal and WSU both generally seem to have a “puncher’s chance” in a game at this point. Peterson is in his first year at UW, installing his system with somebody else’s players, and he’s knocking on 7-8 wins and soundly beating Riley tonight.

    So why is it change at OSU just has to be so impossible and any change HAS to be worse than Riley? Riley is in his 14th season, has a 5th year senior qb, a senior-led defense…ALL his own recruits, all in his system for years..all his spring and fall camps…and he’s capped at 5 wins.

    Over the last 5 years, which programs are trending down besides OSU? Stanford this year.

    Why do so many morons think OSU can’t do better than Riley?

    As the play clock approaches zero (as it does every freaking time we snap the ball), the defense gets to time the snap and thus crushes our blockers. I cant stand to watch this system. Petersen has owned Riley all night. Started with the first drop to pass/sack and then they ran away with it.

    Id support any coaching changes. Thing is, the Pollyanas who still show up to the games and clap in the post game would continue to support the Beavs the exact same if a coaching change were made. There is no downside to jumping on a coach like Matt Wells. We will continue to see the old guard support the team, but hire a coach who can ingnite excitement and then see the bandwagon fans(and their money) come out of the woodwork.

      You know they are spouting bullshit with statements like that. Because unless you just got in from Rigel 4, you know he has never done ANY “tremendous” thing. Never won the league, etc….

      They “respect” him because he will never say anything bad about THEM, and will usually be easy pickings. In evaluating coaches, the opposing coaches are the last people you should talk to…

    Smith with 3 catches and 15 yards. From the player perspective, Smith’s year is one of the most surprising and disappointing to me.

    If he’s not setting the team back 5 yards on a false start, he’s not doing much of anything. What happened?

    I hope Del Rio/Vanderveen and Villamin/Jarmon/Bolden/Dockery have a significantly bromantic summer and play pitch and catch all off-season. First year starter’s obviously struggle in Riley’s system, they’d better put in the work.

    So, 5 wins with this squad. A new qb and largely inexperienced, unremarkable OLBs next year. I know the RFR LBs have potential, I don’t expect them to get enough time even if they are clearly better players.

    This was a waste of a fucking season, and only a coach with uncommon contract security would fuck it away like this. Pathetic.

      And why? Because an over-the-hill fanbase uses the 28-year consecutive losing streak as the bar? Does it take their eternal rest in the gentle soil for OSU to move on to positive goals and benchmarks?

    I just keep waiting for that final downward step where the program crosses the line and becomes like recent vintage Wazzu and CU non-competitive. Like where you’re down 28 at halftime of almost every league game.

    I think that is one reason why Riley’s job is still secure. Lots of uninspired coaching and play, but not that consistent week after week blow out yet. I think the Pollyannas and “28 year losing streak worriers” frame everything within a prism of just not being embarrassed every week. They will point to the 3 blown fourth quarter leds for this season.

    Take your program back people. Not any of our faults that both the administration and head coach have been inept with the football program. Riley would be fired anywhere else and hands down deserves it. The courtesy to retire is a gift at this point and if hr doesn’t take it then the choice is clear. Like Florida the play has been so bad there should have been an in season announcement that Riley would not return. Enjoy losing an 8th straight Civil War. I watched quite a few Pettibone games and found much more to like in them than where Riley is and where he is going. Nowhere. We may waste another year or two letting this get even worse but why? Only an idiot like DeCarolis would allow that. 14 years of Riley needs to finally be the end. Fans have had it and the situation will only get uglier if Riley stays any longer. We need a new direction more than any FBS program in the nation and deserve it now.

    So why didn’t OSU offer Eric Dungey?

    “Lakeridge High School senior quarterback Eric Dungey, a Rivals three-star quarterback, announced his commitment to Syracuse University on Sunday evening, choosing the Orange over offers from Air Force, Colorado State, Harvard, Montana State, UC Davis, UNLV, Wyoming and Yale.

    The 6-foot-4, 200-pound signal-caller has perhaps the highest ceiling of any prospect in the state of Oregon this year, combining a strong arm with elite athleticism for the position.

    This season, Dungey threw for 2,217 yards with 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, while rushing for 868 yards and 14 scores.”

    They’ve offered other 2 and 3* players with his kind of offer list, why not him? 6′ 4′, will definitely put on weight. Is it because he’s mobile?

    Even if he doesn’t turn out to be a legitiamte DI starter, he seems like a good backup candidate and a great scout team QB to prepare the team for mobile qbs.

        But the call was for the existing talent to be directed differently. And there is no dearth of talent. There is a dearth of experience, which many dummies apparently want to conflate with talent. I have no idea why this is done except that maybe CR was a master media manipulator and had most of the media on his side, making the “reality’ in his wake an over-compensation.

            I won’t argue depth. That’s an obvious concern which will affect the team as the season wears on. But our top eight can compete. And I would contend that they can contend better than recent Beavs teams simply because they are are all better defenders and defensive talents… with no depth. Even Olaf has defensive capabilities he showed during CR’s tenure but were not apparent because we just ran that fucking zone until we died.

            The only player I will miss is Collier. He was so not used correctly on the offensive end, and he could have been a spectacular man defender if we would have run it. But he would have also been superb in the amoeba. I would have loved to see that.
