First game thread of the Gary Andersen era, bitches! Let the party start early.

Not much to add. I’m changing my 46-13 prediction to 45-13 because 46 is a tough number to get.

Go Beavs.

      Since you are pro MR, you should be listening to CBS College Sports Radio if you can find it…….a Nebraska caller just called in and said….”the one thing that EVERYONE in the country agrees on is that Mike Riley is an extremely intelligent football coach, he will find a way to beat BYU”.

        Not sure who EVERYONE is, but it doesn’t include me. I always thought he was, generally, a little slow on the pickup and definitely not the sharpest tool in the box as a coach.

      Experience is one of the most overrated things. It’s a nice luxury, but hardly a requirement if the players have the right mindset. I said this before the last basketball season as well, and that team played well, and also with the baseball team, and they did just fine. Experience = overrated.

      It looks awful on TV.

      This is why I said playing at PSU would not be a bad idea. If you have 30% of capacity, is that worse than playing at PSU? They should schedule game 1 vs a cupcake each year up there. Give PSU a cut of the gate. Everyone wins. I’d rather see the Beavs playing at PSU with 80%-100% capacity than Reser at 30%. This is just pathetic.

      Edit: you’d hope people trickle in. The 5:10 start is awful.

      The offense doesn’t look far off to me. Just slight timing and accuracy issues. I think this can be fixed within weeks if not less. Maybe by the end of the game. Some of this is nerves, too, and when that settles we should see better O.

    I know the announcers are infatuated with “Air Collins” hurdling, but when he is in there the field shrinks — the D only has to defend 15 yards, so they can take more risk. I don’t like the flow with Collins in there. It’s one step forward, two back for the O because he can’t throw.

    Defense looks like they are determined to play. Offense can’t see to seal off the edges they need to in this offenense, hence the penalties and lack of yards going to the outside. I think McM is a better choice right now, but I’m surprised at not seeing more bubble screens and short routes to get the ball in our receivers hands… Maybe we are not showing the entire playbook for Michigan?

    When is the last time a Beaver D held anyone (no matter the division) to 76 yards total offense? Just need to punch it in the end zone a couple of times. I’d take a 27-0 win, with a dominating defensive performance. Need to score on the first drive of the half to get this going in the right direction, maybe a turnover or two on D.

    I’m actually shocked Collins has gotten so many more opportunities and replaced McM after that one bad throw (granted, it was bad). Collins literally cannot throw the ball against a competitive defense. When he plays a decent defense they are going to send the house every time and he’s going to get killed. I was really hoping to see McM get an actual shot at the starting job to see if we could get a guy that could actually pass as the starting QB. Hopefully Baldwin knows better and I’m wrong but I think we’ll be lucky to get 4 wins this season.

    I do not know who is the better qb is. One game will not give us an answer and Baldwin will not give up on MM based on this game. Yet anyone who judges a qb by the tightness of the spiral is mistaken. Leadership trumps arm 150 % of the time. This game plays out exactly as I expected. However, weakness in kicking game is punting not fg kicking.

      You mean, what have you done for me lately, because I am an ADD fan? A fres man qb making a major mistake will, sit, watch and learn. this is not a soccer trophy game where self esteem is the end all. You make a major mistake, you then put your butt on the bench. You sit, you burn, you brood and you repeat to yourself that this will not happen again. In the old days we called this learning. In today’s society ya’ ll want no consequences for crappy decisions. Everything must be even, even when it is not.

        And if that was the speech beforehand instead of, “I won’t pull you if you make a mistake,” you wouldn’t be a liar.

        Do y’all have any consequences for that crappy decision?

        … I mean other than getting called out for it on a blog then having someone go off on the people calling you out for it… for something totally unrelated?

        I would normally agree with the unrelated sentiment you do go off on though… except who the hell calls a screen of any kind in their end zone? It’s a screen. You’re in your end zone. You have to throw it. And you can’t just ground it. All your linemen have released the D, and they’re coming after you. You throw to a certain space if you can’t see your target, and he’ll be open because it’s a screen. Right?

        Three times they ran that inside screen. Weber was all over it each time with progressively worse results. There is a school of thought in coaching that you get right back on the horse that threw you, or the horse wins.

      You can’t eat it. You’re in the end zone. This is why the call is really bad. The split second decision is what in this situation? You’re supposed to trust the call. Your target is not only open. He’s so open that he has time to pivot and wait for his blockers to pave the way. Right?

        I didn’t see the exact formation on that play, but a lot of times the WR screen won’t even have a secondary option. That alone makes it a rough call near the endzone. They were probably thinking it was a safe pass, but what they failed to realize it was also a predictable pass without options.

      Hard to take alot from a so-so performance in a game 1 vs a lower division team. Have to keep in mind, even the Fiesta Bowl team barely squeaked out a win vs Georgia Southern in their 1st game.
      Curious to see if the playbook was purposefully dialed back for this game to not give Michigan much to scout. Also, no, Collins isn’t great, but he has shown growth since the Spring and even early fall camp. He’ll improve as long as he doesnt become too confidant and start making more risky plays.
      If anything, this game should have lit a fire under McM’s ass. He needs to show some of that confidence Collins is overflowing with.

    Seems to me the question is not whether or not STG is a good QB or if 3M is a good QB; it is: WHICH ONE IS BEST? And, today, we did not learn the answer to that key question.

    Blame coaching decisions, poor O-line play which kept the game too close early, or….dare I say..nepotism (as in STG is Andersen’s guy?).

    Go Beavs. This was a great game, 26-7 for the Beavs, truly wonderful to watch. Did you get to watch? Glad I wore my old Beavs hat today that I sure that brought them luck along with your orange jersey. They led only 6-0 at half but with great defense with only one miscue for only 1 TD for Weber State in the second half to keep them in the game. They used both true freshman at QB and neither did much in the first half with a strong finish by Seth Collins at QB. Seth Collins came out in the 2nd half and marched down to a TD in the 2nd half and continued to great play with many great plays in both passing, handing off and rushing so I think he is now the probable starter with a very high QB rating. He was also the leading rusher for the game and kind of reminds me of Marcus Mariota. I was very impressed with the OSU defense that was somewhat lacking last season that kept them in this game throughout. Great coaching also. Next week on Saturday is against Michigan at their field. It’s going to be a tough one. Go Beavs!.
