Anything goes, have at it.

Beavgopher — feel free to invite Nebraska fans to the thread. I’d love to hear their thoughts as that game moves along. I’m going 20-17 Nebraska, accounting for the -7 Riley factor!

    Our AB fantasy football draft is tomorrow. I’m going to send out an email now — respond to confirm, else I’ll look for a replacement.

    Anyone interested if we do need a replacement? It’s a 10 team auction draft, ppr.

    Looks like Thunder and Lightening is being forecast for the mid week forecast with some rain. Hope that worst case scenario that there is only rain on the weekend! I hope the Beavs will be dunkin’ some balls to practice with a wet ball and be ready in case.

        I’m pretty sure Michigan’s a grass field still. I’m not sure rain is in our favor unless our O Line drastically improves. And if Michigan loads the box and forces us to throw, it could get ugly quick. I think us throwing the ball when we want is much more advantageous than having to throw because of down and distance.

        Either way, this game will be a huge game in terms of learning for the Beavs. Being competitive will help bring in some more confidence to this young team. I think this should be a close game (barring a meltdown). So it could be a possible shocking victory for us but the pressure is all on Michigan to win. How we respond to this game (win or lose) will be paramount to the results of the rest of the season IMO.

        Go Beavs!

    Once the deal with DirecTV somehow fell through for the Pac-12 it has been a downhill slide. Millions more per school would have been a big deal and the conference would have been riding a high. Instead a poor start. Embarrassing loss for the Cougs but a nice victory for my other alma mater in PSU. Colorado still stinks and their Mac might not survive a 2 or 3 win season. Don’t think they do any better than 3 wins. Huskies have a couple skill players but bad loss for them too. Oregon State is in good bowl situation with 6 wins. Other teams like UW and WSU may not get there.

        Right. The strange thing is for someone that is supposedly so well respected it’s hysterical to hear announcers seem so surprised by Riley idiocy. How do they have ‘so much respect’ for someone they have never seen or paid attention too? Do they just read fat Lindsey talking points? Because while the announcers watch the game, they see and say the same things we’ve been saying for years.

    Let’s re-evaluate this schedule:

    9/4 vs. Weber State W 26 – 7
    9/12 at Michigan 9:00 PT -Tough probably a loss
    9/19 vs. San Jose State 5:00 PT-Close game but a win
    9/25 vs. 21 Stanford 7:00 PT-very tight game winnable but I say Loss
    10/10 at 22 Arizona TBA- Loss
    10/17 at Washington State TBA- Tight game Win
    10/24 vs. Colorado TBA-Win
    10/31 at Utah TBA-Loss
    11/7 vs. 13 UCLA TBA-Tight game Win
    11/14 at California TBA-Loss
    11/21 vs. Washington TBA-Win
    11/27 at 7 Oregon 12:30 PT-???

    6 wins is very possible at this point. With this coaching staff, more is definitely not out of the question! This is a good season for the PAC 12 to be “down”!

          I did post it before seeing Rosen play but “overrated” is not saying they’re not good, they’re just not the #13 team in the country. Rosen played well against a very (and I’m being nice here) average Virginia team. The defense played better than I expected and Perkins is really good. I just don’t believe Rosen can bring this team to be #13 or better in the country. that’s all.

    Armstrong be taking 10 yard sacks like Mannion. One third of that fan base is going to turn on Riley tonight.

    At OSU it appears 2016 could be pretty good and by 2017 Andersen’s Beavs could be a very serious threat to contend for the Pac-12 North crown. I think that Louisville back who visited and other recruits need to take a strong look at joining what has indications of a program headed the right direction to make some real noise. WSU and UW fans both could be looking for new coaches by then.

    OSU’s situation will be among the better ones in the North in the next couple years. Coaches need to start selling that now cause with a few more quality pieces and strengthening the running attack and O line play, Andersen will no doubt have the Beavers relevant and trending higher soon. Seth if he stays healthy and this team have real potential.

        I can’t remember exactly but something to the effect of it was poor communication by the players and the penalties are why they were behind. All said with stupid smirk.

        By contrast GA going to half ahead btw was not happy said we need to clean things up and the offense was unacceptable not pointing to a play or player or penalty.

    If I was the Nebraska AD I would cut my losses tomorrow and end much more heartache. Losing that way means HALF the fanbase at least will be pissed at Riley.

    So glad we aren’t forced to take another 7+ years of that being stuffed down our throats as competent administration of a football program.

            He is definitlely a prick for the reasons y’all are saying. But when folks are tossing millions at ya, I am sure its a hard thing to process. Whether its dememtia or just loss of competitive energy, he started a downhill slide but the millions kept coming….so he kept going…. Manning up got harder and harder, I bet.

            There was a bit on his coaching career during that BYU game and someone should have noted that he wasnt really all that successful, all the stints he had, except for a string of years after he came back to OSU. And even that was studded with occasional strangeness.

            What is amazing in all that is how the GOOD GUY/FAMILY image kept carrying him onward.

            I kind of feel bad for him. Once it’s generally accepted that HE was the problem at OSU, I’ll wish him well at Nebraska (though, he will likely be failing for that to happen). Too bad he doesn’t just admit he coasted for years. If he admitted he coasted and milked OSU and they could do much better than him, I’d root for him.

            first it must be said that Angry was right about this (as he is 99% of the time) 🙂 when he suggested that there was something “off” about Riley.

            And his post just above is equally insightful because I was wondering all day just why I wanted BYU to win so badly and it’s because until it is generally conceded (by Parker, Goe, Schnell, etc) that Riley was the problem, not Corvallis, or the university, or the airport, or the facilities, or the resources, or the lack of tradition, or, or, or … as a fan of OSU you can’t root for the guy

            It’s not really a horrible thing to suggest, it affects millions of people and Riley could easily be one of them. Everyone is noticing there’s a problem with his speeches and how incomprehensible he sounds during interviews. Could be nervousness or it could be something worse idk. Guess it just touched a nerve or something and she got irrational which sucks

            I said “stroke” sarcastically, he is definitely “stammerish”, but I think it’s just him being nervous, I think he does understand that expectations just increased tenfold with this job and it’s probably a little unsettling to him to have this worst case scenario start to the season no matter how long he’s been coaching.

            My Mom has mild to moderate dementia and one thing I notice is she doesn’t understand some questions you ask at all and then she tries to cover it up in her own way. Riley understands the questions that are being asked.

            I remember watching singer Glen Campbell on the TV being interviewed a few years back after my Mom had been diagnosed and I said to my wife, he has dementia, I wonder if it’s been diagnosed? You could see it on his face, he couldn’t follow all the details in the questions. Riley is not exhibiting that type of behavior.

      Oregon’s defense has been quietly terrible since last year. They would’ve lost to Washington State last year had it not been for Mariota’s heroics, and the defense got completely annihilated by Ohio State in the championship game.

      You can pretty much run all over them, and I hope that’s what Andersen does in Eugene this year.

        You sound like EWUs head coach lol. They recruited Mariota (He won the Heisman is that good or nah?) and until just this year they’ve been playing with their own recruits at QB. And it’s not that they weren’t confident in the replacements it’s that Vernon Adams is really good. He put up 400+ TDs on FBS schools with an FCS supporting cast.

            I think his question was more like this,

            their last 3 qb’s have been Dennis Dixon, The guy who picked his nose in the national championship game against Auburn (sorry but his name escapes me and I’m lazy), then Mariota. The question was why did they need to go get Vernon Adams when they’ve done so well recruiting mobile qb’s?

            Honestly, I think Adams is pretty good. But we’ll see how he does on a week to week basis against D1 defenses. I don’t think he’s big enough to hold up and winds up injured. Kinda like Seth Collins.

            I guess I can see that. I read it as him wondering why they’ve had so much trouble in the past not just this last year which I thought was a dumb question since I can’t even remember the last time the quacks had a bad QB. Shit even the nose picker put up good stats and took em to a natty.

            No matter what was meant, many teams wanted Adams regardless of their QB situations. I even remember people wanting the EWU coach to take over at OSU just so Adams would come with him.

            How is it a dumb question? I’m asking why they didn’t have any good options already on the roster to replace Mariota.

            They had to rely on a transfer student to replace Mariota. They should have had a young recruit ready to replace him in my opinion. Seems inexcusable considering how good they’ve been that they wouldn’t have anyone on the roster already.

            Jeff Locke does not seem that good. He would be the starter if not for Adams, correct?

            If I’m mistaken, you can inform me in a less asshole manner, I was asking a question because I don’t follow the Ducks recruiting.

            Alabama has 2 national titles in the last 5 years and their starting QB is a transfer. Florida State won a national title and their starting QB is a transfer. It’s not inexcusable to do this anymore. It’s college free agency and it’s the way big programs are making sure they contend for a title every year.

            I think if the Ducks were actively going after an experienced graduate transfer QB it shows a lack of confidence that Lockie could get the job done, so what were they going to do if they couldn’t find anyone (remember there were a few Golson rumors going around also)? It’s only one game, but Adams is no Mariota, but he’s probably a lot better than Lockie. So what are they going to do next year, same situation or does Lockie get bumped by one of the ‘superstar” underclassmen? Until defenses stop Freeman, you don’t need a running QB anyway.

Are you serious? Just look at any team in America basically that has lost a QB or two (in some cases). They bring in the guys that they recruited and in most cases, those guys are serviceable.

    Football is all about matchups. I’m going to talk a bit about Oregon here! There are several teams that I feel match up well with Oregon this season. One of them has seemed to play them tight, every season in recent years, and even if they did lose to PSU today they still have a chance against Oregon (that’s WSU…duh!). Personally, I think Oregon loses at least 3 games this season. MSU for sure ASU, WSU (their good match up), Cal, Stanford and USC are just a few teams that I think will possibly beat the Ducks. Yes, they may lose more than 3 games guys! Obviously teams that spread them out and throw the football are going to have success this season (per EWU). But then you add in a PAC 12 defense with that and Oregon looks pretty average, comparatively to the past. I say at least 3 losses and WSU or Cal will be at least one of those (if not 2). We, however, may still be a year away.

    Go Beavs!

        Not at all. Match ups. Look at the last few seasons games between Oregon and WSU

        http://scores.espn.go.com/ncf/recap?gameId=400548267 (last season)
        And that was during a 3-9 season.

        Don’t let the PSU game fool ya here. WSU can put up points through the air and they seem to match up well with Oregon (even on D they can keep them in check). Oregon is not as good as they have been the last few seasons, especially on D but also on offense. They are very limited at several positions as oppose to the last few seasons! I’m not saying that WSU WILL win, I’m saying of all of the mentioned teams, they may be one of the teams to beat the Ducks. Put the pipe down and read the post properly there Spicoli.

            It may not happen, but it is possible. That’s why I gave a list of about 5 teams. Using the fact that Chip Kelly and the current regime haven’t lost to WSU as the reason why they never will is weak my friend. In fact, last season, the Ducks barely escaped the game with a win. Point of the original post, Ducks lose AT LEAST 3 games this season.

      That is what is so infuriating about that ass-hat Leach: he faceplants against weak competition then rallies against a few big conference opponents. Makes the whole conference look like shit. Kind of reminds me of Riley in that respect.

      I get what you’re saying. I think Cal poses the same danger and likely has a little better defense this year.

      I think the Ducks come back down to earth this year. They have a terrible DC and mediocre OC and HC. Stanford is showing the effects of the Harbaugh glow wearing off. I think the Ducks might do the same post Kelly.

        I know the main guys on the staff (Ducks) and they’re good guys and coaches but they’re not great or elite coaches. Radclife (their strength and conditioning coach) is an elite guy though (really knows his shit and is a big reason for their success). I think you’re right Jim. I think the Ferrari is breaking down a bit and it’s time to find a new car. I don’t see Helfrich starting something again like Kelly did. It’s going to be really fun to watch all the bandwagon fans freak out when they lose 3 games or so. Ha ha. What a joke!

      It’s still a young season. Rosen looked good in his first game. Never count out RichRod. Utah is just due for another undefeated season right about now. And Nikegon can still just try and outscore everyone. Their offense is a machine. It’s not as well oiled as it has been. But it’s a plug and play system. As Chip’s guys leave the program the machine will start to find it hard to find replacements.

      And don’t count out Sonny Dykes. That guy scared me when he was first hired. His first season at Cal only made everyone get lazy about the Cal narrative. Those guys got a new stadium and a coach who does not lose.

    Angry pirate post game presser. It’s pretty anti climactic FYI. I don’t know if it was Leach’s response but around the 5:20 mark you can hear the reporter recording it snicker under his breath. I also thought Leach was going to lose his shit when another reporter asked him about his job security after losing to an FCS team, but alas. He also replied with “next question” when asked if Luke Falk was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure. I think that one annoyed him

      I didn’t know they reinstated the blocked PAT for two thingy. I still wonder if they have done so.

      But let’s say they did. And bear in mind I haven’t seen any clips from this game and probably won’t since it’s USC and not worth my time… or my toenail’s time… any one of them. If the blocked (or otherwise) kick went beyond the LOS and hit the ground it cannot be returned. That’s about it. if it bounces in the backfield first it’s a free ball.

    well after 1 week only Cal and USC dominated as they should. Didn’t include the ducks because their defense looked awful giving up 42 points and 550 yards to EWU in spite of what their offense did.

    2. Cal
    3. Oregon
    4. UCLA
    5. Utah

      I can understand the thinking UW is better than UA since they lost by 3 on the road to a ranked opponent. The huskies looked to have a pretty stout defense. But much like OSU if the offense can’t generate points or sustain drives, the defense will tire. WSU lost at home to an FCS opponent while the Buffs lost on the road in Hawaii. I disagree with WSU being better than CU. And if Luke Falk is hurt and misses significant time, WSU will stay in the basement

          That’s not a fair take. Nikegon’s pass D sucks major eggs. If they face a decent run O, they’re toast. Wazzu does nothing but pass. They will probably roll on O against the Ducks. Stopping the O system that is Nikegon is the hitch. Their Heisman winner can be duplicated with a 5’6″ QB that couldn’t win everything at the FCS level. Their O is the machine. So what if their D sucks? You have to score 50 to beat them right now. Some teams will do so. We won’t.

      I was telling Nebraska fans about the staff on their board, and they got so mad at me they banned me. I predicted 7 wins, 8 best case and gave reasons why, and they went nuts. A couple other guys from AB were over there warning them, too. They blew us all off and convinced themselves Riley was the answer. I said to them, you’re just doing that because you need to have hope, and they said no, that Riley was a great coach, and it was amazing what he did at lowly OSU. I said alright, sounds like you guys need to see it to believe it, and now they’ve seen it. Some of them still can’t believe it. The mind is a bitch.

Today’s game solidified that it’s not the lack of recruiting to Corvallis, but, the incredible mediocrity that was the 3 stooges. Reilly, Langdorf, and banker. Each one failed today by showing everything that is wrong. That coaching staff is gone now, let the rise of beaver nation begin! Let them be 3 and 9!

      K-State Marching Band

      “The chart below represents the drill from tonight’s show. There was absolutely no intent to display anything other than the Enterprise and the Jayhawk in battle. If I am guilty of anything it would be the inability to teach the drill in a manner that these young people could have succeeded. I do apologize for the misinterpretation and I assure you that I meant absolutely no disrespect or malice toward the University of Kansas.”

      Director of the K-State Marching Band

        I thought my job was made artificially hard by me. Who knew?

    Caught the last couple plays of MIke’s debut at a buddy’s house. Instant classic!
    Let my bro stew for a few hours before texting “told ya.”

    If Nebraska just happened to lose all of their preseason games, what are the chances that the three stooges get fired?

    I’m so pissed!!

    Frauds like Leach and Biley scam millions out their respective university’s and I was paid $79,500 to take crap and get canned by a bunch of Corvallis based AARP doofusses! Life is so unfair! JB

      It could be worse. You could contribute to the very noticeable degradation in academic capacity at the University of Oregon while simultaneously touting or supporting the wonderful athleticness of Nikegon.

      But at least you don’t have a degree from there. That would be embarrassing.

      No.

      We couldn’t get anyone to hear us when we had the dude here… and a fashion/donut maven as our beat writer.

      I feel like I should pick on Kerry Eggers for not being objective. But that’s all he was even if he was the dude’s best friend. The rest bothered to insert themselves in the conversation, from Ted Miller to Cliff. Although, Cliff was/is low hanging fruit. He may have a different perspective after spending a year in an armpit.

          I would immediately forgive Cliff if he wrote a piece about being so very wrong… in just about every tone and perspective he wrote before he went to hell. And the he waved buh-bye as he left for hell as if he was going to heaven.

          Now that he’s back, I see him retweet Horowitz articles. Give me a mea culpa and get on with reality Cliff. You deserve it.

        At least Eggers was able to give us more information, hence more insight into Riley than the others. I guess Cliff couldn’t risk his access, so he had to stay vanilla boring until the end. Not much to hang your journalistic hat on during his Corvallis tenure, but Cliff plays in the minor leagues anyway.

        Don’t know why anyone would give you a neg over that comment, it was spot on. I just took it back to neutral.

    To me the thing that’s interesting is that it’s not going to take much for “Biley” to be a failure at Nebraska, a lot of the fan base still expects to be in national championship discussions EVERY SEASON. One loss you’re almost done (mission accomplished in 3 plus hours), two losses and it’s season over Johnny! Coaches with 9 and 10 win seasons get fired at Nebraska. MR may say he understands it, but does he really understand it? My conspiracy theory, is that he’s crazy like a fox, this is a retirement package for him and the boys.

      That was in the works already. He’s a dual threat and he sees that every guy riley recruits is pro-style. Smart enough to see the writing on the wall.

          It’s my understanding that the only visitor this weekend was the Louisville commit RB Malik Staples.

    I wonder if Riley really believed the bullshit all along about him being a great coach and Corvallis being the problem, and he thought coming to Nebraska and having “real athletes and facilities” would somehow change his obvious ineptitude.

    Now he could be coming to the realization that the problem is that he and his cronies suck shit, and his new job comes with a rabid fan base and high expectations. He certainly has that deer in the headlights look about him, not that that’s anything new.

      It wouldn’t surprise me if those were his thoughts coming to Nebraska. Given what we’ve seen, his brain is certainly scrambled and I could easily see him thinking that. The fact he didn’t retire from OSU, he went on to something “bigger and better” indicates that he really did think he was the man for the job.

      It’s easy to make excuses for yourself until the problem is staring at you right in the face, and I’m guessing that’s where the “deer in headlights” look is coming from right now. Dude should have retired 3 years ago, end of story. Instead, some weird mix of ego and denial is driving him onward until the wheels come all the way off.

    In summation, mike Riley is a PUSSY! A total Puussy who doesn’t understand people like us. He is sucking the ADs dick right now!
