This could be a rough one.

I don’t see the Beavs being able to stop Booker or Wilson running the ball. The Beavs simply tackle too high and without intensity, though they are carrying some defensive momentum (17 points over 6 quarters is a positive). On the flip side, Utah are a bit overrated — they looked very small and slow vs USC — but they do play with defensive intensity that OSU can’t match. I can see Utah putting up 300 yards on the ground and getting over a handful of sacks if Mitchell is the QB.

The Beavs shot at an upset will be through turnovers and special teams. The mix of Mitchell and Collins is a wildcard, and I don’t know what to expect from that. In the pre-season I thought this was a 50/50 game, but now you have to think Utah by a margin.

35-20, Utah

    42-10. This one gets ugly early, and Utah won’t let off the pedal. Catching a great team coming off a loss, is not to our advantage.

    Utah fans have had this one circled all year. They love their halloween night blackout games in salt lake and their fans are crazy. I think Beavs lose big. 48-13

      But c’mon, Beavs wear orange and black! What could go wrong?!?

      Is this a national telecast? Thinking exposure, recruiting….

      NallBall will be fun to watch at times, but I think Utah in a blowout, Nall sore on sunday/monday….

      Most Utah fans don’t really care that it’s Andersen, and prefer Pease over Sitake.

    So, we are often told that a team’s biggest improvement comes between games 1 and 2. Will NM shine vs Utah, since it is his #2? Will he even be given the opportunity?

    Pre-season I had this game a tossup, but that is back when I figured the Beavs D was gonna be a very bright spot. Even with the 6 quarter streak mentioned by angry, it will take a big, big step forward to hang with the Utes. Grimble has been invisible and the LB’s not what I expected and now with the DB’s banged up (and Strong’s regression) it feels like a long night comin’.

    It’ll take flawless special teams, a breakout by NM, and big contributions by Nall, StHC^2 as a RB, and even a dose of Storm to keep things respectable. Too many areas needing improvement, the line which has Beavs as 20-23 pt dogs doesn’t seem too far off right now.

        Not doubting the validity of your source but Whittingham doesn’t strike me as a U$C type. He was at odds with the Utah AD last year so there is that. Money talks though

          I bet Simple Jack is kicking himself in the ass right now. If he could have convinced BobbyD he was going to try hard this season he would have been in perfect position to replace Cutty Sark at USC. He probably could have won some games with a loaded roster full of kids that already ran a pro set.

            Riley ditching OSU for a second time was all Riley’s decision. And if USC really wants him, they can go get him.

      The USC game wasn’t a lose for utah. It was a complete dismantling in ever facet of the game. It will be interesting to see how they come back. Some teams shake it off others fold, this is utah’s 15 minutes since joining the pac. I’m not saying this is a win, but I think it will be closer than you think. Utah by 17

      A lot of that .500 record was with recruits from when they were a Mountain West school. They also had to adjust to playing in a Power 5 conference. It’s cool you’re high on GA, but Whittingham is a very good coach.

            You missed something in Life 101 if you don’t see a difference between a generic “yo mama” poke (common on the internet and obviously no one knows squat about your mom) and a “you’re scum, your wife is dead” remark (when you know someone’s wife has actually passed away.)

            The equivalent about your mom would be something like if she committed suicide, someone knew that, and told you “you’re such a scumbag, no wonder your mom killed herself.”

            Do you see the difference? I’m guessing you don’t, or maybe can’t, but there’s a heads-up because if you don’t get on that, you’re going to run into some major problems down the road with someone offline.

      They should play the freshman vs the upper classmen. That will show how well the freshman have adapted.

      Freshman
      C – Rakocevic
      PF – Eubanks
      SF – Tinkle
      SG – Thompson
      PG – Bruce

      Bench – Muller, Dahlen, Stangel

      Upperclassmen
      C – Gomis
      PF – Reid
      SF – Olaf
      SG – Duvivier
      PG – Payton

      Bench – LMW, N’Diaye

      Then mix up the starters vs the backups.

      The most important thing I would look for from the freshman is how well they play defense. It’s hard to come in a start scoring as a freshman so defense should be the top priority. The team played great defense last year. That needs to continue.

        I’m curious to see if they stick primarly with the zone or if they play more man now that they have the athlete’s to do so. I’m not sure what Tinkle’s typicaly D is.

          Most coaches like to play man to man. Switch to zone to slow down offenses or to hide deficient defenders. Very rare to find guys like Boeheim who sticks to the zone 100%.

          I would say it depends on how the offense goes. The offense was the worst in conference play last year. Using the zone slowed other teams down and kept them in games.

          OSU shot .402 from the field last year in conference but they held opponents to .399. Creating a larger margin in those stats would add to the win total. The two leaders last year in FG% difference were Arizona and Utah.

          I see no reason why they can’t be just as good on defense this year as they were last year. Any additional scoring should create a few more wins in conference.

            I hope that is true — as good on defense this year. But there are factors at play. They had to be good on D last year, and knew it. This year they are looking at more firepower, and may let up on D. The coaches need to keep them onto that tough D….

    While I like seeing the optimism (some people are even predicting wins this upcoming weekend), I think some of you guys have been drinking a tad too much Beaver Juice lately. What have you guys seen that makes you think we can compete with a Ute team that will attack us offensively in much the same way that Michigan and Stanford did, only with a better running back than either of those teams had? (and it is on the road at Utah, no less)

      They still have to play the game. Too often we’ve seen really really bad teams beat supposedly really really good teams because one team showed up to play, and the other thought they only had to show up.

        That’s exactly what I was thinking on his first half dozen runs. He waits for blocks to happen before revealing his hand.

        That must be intuitive. We’ve seen all our backs crash the line before anything goes anywhere too often in the last decade… except for Quizz… who often had to make moves three yards in the backfield to avoid the D.

    Upsets do happen but it doesn’t feel like this game is ripe for one. The Utah team resembles the teams that have dominated the Beav’s defense. There aren’t any signs that the Beavs have fixed the issues they had against Michigan or Stanford or WSU.

    To win, the offense would have to lead the way. Jump out to a 21 point lead and try to hold on. And somehow stop Booker.

    The defense is allowing 197 rushing per game. Not a good stat.

      Gonna be interesting to see.. I mean it would seem like the recruits shouldn’t have been expecting a top 25 team. But if they are like me they probably didn’t expect the Beavs to be this bad. AND as much as we try to explain it away a lot of the bad play has been precipitated by poor coaching and scheming.

      1. Why do we keep trying to allow Seth to misread 15-20 read option plays per game and not dial up more designed runs??
      2. Why weren’t NM or MM allowed to get reps in blowout games?
      3. Why was the defense playing basically a 5-2-4 against Arizona?
      4. Why didn’t we exploit the same holes Arizona showed they had on the edge with designed stretch run plays?
      5. Why when pressed earlier in the season did we not change our route combos or formation to bunch and or other notorious press coverage beaters?

      These are things that some big time recruits may notice and pick up on and could sour them on OSU. BUT GA is so smooth with rhetoric that I predict he is able to keep the class in tact.

            They have corrected a few of these things.. I saw a lot of bunch formations against CU and we ran almost a dozen slant routes by my take. These are both great against press coverage. This didn’t happen against Michigan Zona or Stanford though.

      WEAK!!

      Please re-read these

      1. Don’t get reported. There are good trolls and there are bad trolls. You want to be a good troll. Griefing, flaming and generally being an annoying jerk will only get you reported and eventually banned.

      2. . Use a VPN. Let’s be realistic, the things YOU do on the Internet? You should probably be using a VPN anyway. VPNs, or virtual private networks, feed your internet traffic through a third or fourth party, letting you appear to be somewhere where you are not.

      3. Keep it FRESH and engaging. For example don’t post your opinions but instead support your position with stats that are fake but might sound like they could be real. You should not be a permanent troll. Give yourself character and originality that will make you an accepted feature of the community.

      You keep taking one step forward and two steps back Larry. Step your game up.

        Isn’t Nall the only healthy running back right now? Paul Lucas was a RB in high school, wasn’t he? Could you throw him in there for a few snaps?

          Looking at the roster, I see we are blessed with the talents of: Jaylynn Bailey, Marcus Greaves, Wesley Riddell, Shane Wallen and the 5-5 160lb dynamo that is Kieren Yancy. Perhaps a diamond in the rough there? Anybody? Anybody?

    Wow, what a week. Flip Saunders passes and now this. I am numb. Flip was a very good player at Minnesota and then an Asst. coach for five years. His beautiful twin daughters were members of the dance line for four years and he sat a few rows in front of us at the basketball games. Very sad situation.

      It can always get worse.
      They could hire CR to replace Flip, and they could “poach” Riley to replace Kill.

        No. He had two seizures on Tuesday before practice. Remember he’s had a couple serious seizures on the sideline of games as well. And I think he’s recovered from some kind of cancer as well.

        Kill has just had a rough time of it while also getting to do what he loves. It just happens that what he loves is also one of the most stressful and potentially detrimental professions when it comes to health.

        I think it played a small part, but apparently he had started having seizures again. It explains some of the odd things that have gone on this season. A year with very high expectations has fallen flat, and although we have had an unimaginable amount of injuries, something else seemed to be going on.

    I see the multi-sheet puzzle posters that OSU has mailed and put on recruits beds during visits,

    Is this to get around NCAA rules about the size of the paper you can give a recruit? twenty 8 x 11 pieces of paper OK, but one 36×20 poster against the rules?

    Either way I love it and it’s making impact based on the results

      I don’t know of any rules of any kind. But I would figure it’s better than folding one large poster seven times and trying to stuff it into a manila folder for transport. And if the kid takes the time to put it back together when he gets home, you might get an idea of where he’s leaning on an in-home.

    OT: Taking a new tone on the Andersen era, Eggers admits, “The coaches know better than everybody what is best for their team. That’s a fact. ”

    He quotes GA on the youth movement, “The older guys who are the true tough guys, the true competitors, are embracing that youth. The older guys, if they’re not, they’ll get tossed off the bus at some point, because the kids won’t let that happen. “

      Get over it. He was asked to throw sideline passes to stop time… when the D knew we had to get out of bounds… which is also why SC wasn’t in the game and we weren’t running Nall… in the final series. The second to last series was a little confusing.

      He also had four drops (legit drops… not low and behind… in stride and long play potential) which led to multiple attempts that were unnecessary in terms of down and distance. For instance, Bolden catches the post, and it’s not 3rd and long in our own territory after the obligatory and safe run call. Guyton catches the slant on 2nd and long, and it’s not the same situation.

      He throws a better ball and manages the game better. He obviously couldn’t make some throws he’s never faced before. But reps are what get you there. What he didn’t do is look at one receiver and force the stupid throw… or just run instead.

      I liked the mix of the two, especially with both on the field. It was at least fun to watch. I hope to see more of that if this is to be a lost season.

        You’re correct. Count yourself a perfect 5-0.

        It was rsteve who threw in a second batch of picks late… post under yours. I think he was going for the negative exposure, which would have given him a worser record for the week.

            I didn’t bother because I thought that was the intent… it was precisely opposite of what you picked previously. And it was worse (2-3) than what you originally picked.

            I just cut-n-pasted everything. Because you had a second post, I cut it and pasted it up the page with the other. But the timestamp remained below with Outcast’s post.

            No biggie. It was my admin bad.

          Meh, I’d pick them in a game I thought they would win. They’ve shown nothing in the past month to suggest that they are capable of going into Tempe and beating ASU. Despite the narrative they are trying to spin in Eugene that Adams getting healthy and beating UW is the start of turning their season around, they struggled to beat an offensively-challenged Husky team. ASU has disappointed this season, but they are a better team than Oregon is right now.

    Coaches Hot Seat dropping more truth bombs on the quacks:

    “‘Assume for a moment in Chip Kelly’s last season that Mark Helfrich or his agent had made it known they were interested in then Oregon OC Mark getting a head coaching job on the FBS level away from Eugene would have ANY FBS program have hired Mark Helfrich?’

    The obvious answer to the above question is “NO” but then Oregon football hasn’t been for years in the past or is now about Oregon hiring the best available football coach but rather finding a coach that can be approved by the very tiny Politburo that runs things in Eugene which gets its ass-kissed on any and everything and any academic-type that was interested in doing a study on what it’s like to work in a Major College Athletic Program where people spend most of their waking hours kissing the ass of one man then head to Eugene, Oregon…”

        Altman was not their first choice. They swung for the fence with Izzo and Billy Donovan first. We all got a good hearty laugh over that. Whoreton is overrated and rode the coat tails of what Augie Garrido built before bolting for Austin. CK was an FCS unknown that fell in their lap. They can get good coaches there. But not great ones that can name their price. Those types of coaches don’t want to live in Eugene

          I’m not jumping on this Collin’s is an “asshole” train. You don’t know him, you are a fan basing your views off of a couple interviews and inside “sources” with interviewers. We don’t know his personal life or rather anything about him. Making the assumption he is an asshole is a stretch, same with the statements claiming he’s a crybaby. Crybaby or just emotionally driven? It’ll do you all a flavor to understand not everyone is going to be Mr. Nice-Upstanding-Gentleman. You are judging a book by it’s cover, plain and simple. Kid is 18 give the fucker a break, most people are this way at that age. You are a fan, nothing more. You hold no significance besides yourself being the “asshole” calling a student-athlete rude names behind their backs. You are the same type of people writing death threats to student-athletes who make fatal errors in games.

Calling someone an asshole compared to issuing death threats isn’t even close to being in the same book. Your rant sucks, is completely off base and has no merit whatsoever. Get over yourself

            Lane, you don’t know what you’re talking about. It’s not common for a D1 quarterback to consistently act like he does. Maybe some pouting in week one or two is more common, but it comes across like an attitude problem by the end of October. A lot of people in here are connecting sideline behavior, interviews, what he says/doesn’t say, and how he responds to coaching decisions and also how he responds when the team is sucking. Maybe you’re related to Collins or one of his buddies. I don’t know. I’m wondering if you’ve played team sports.

            You may not be comparing them person vs. person, but you are saying they are both assholes which is the common denominator. Saying they are both assholes is a similarity which is the definition of comparing. Comparing = pointing out similarities.

            That’s the definition of similarity. You just tried a circular argument.

            Comparing is pointing out similarity or differences. Obviously Hitler and Collins have many more differences than similarities. I didn’t get into these because they’re obvious and not the point. Their one glaring similarity is they are/were both assholes. The bigger point was that you don’t have to know someone personally to know they are an asshole.

            Before trying to argue maybe next time take a minute to comprehend what’s being said.

            You saying Collins is an asshole and Hitler is/was an asshole compares similarities, otherwise you wouldn’t have brought up Hitler (or any other person) in the first place.

            So you think I was saying Collins killed millions of Jews rather than both were assholes (who I don’t know)? Which was my obvious point.

            I’m not seeing your point. I say I don’t know Hitler yet know he is an asshole; you say I am comparing Collins to Hitler; I say no I am just saying they are both assholes I don’t know; you come back and say I’m “comparing” similarities after I tell you I’m pointing out two assholes I don’t know, and you use the definition of a similarity to prove this; then I point that out as circular, and you come back with an incomplete definition of a “comparison” and a moving the goalpost fallacy of “it’s opinion” and subjective and that I say or suggest it was fact [when it was you who interpreted it as fact].

            Okay, you’ve made your points clear enough.. anyone who disagrees with you or opposes your views is an asshole. Still trying to figure out what your definition of an asshole his? General personality? Actions? One action? Explain.

            Hitler was regarded as a nice and pleasant person to be around (those that were close to him or got to be close to him) and his people loved him. So what constitutes him as a whole lies solely on political actions.

            Now, you declare that I am an asshole simply because I disagree with your public execution of Collins? Surely, I didn’t kill 6 million Jews. You don’t know if I am an “asshole” based solely off our brief exchange. You know nothing about my personality as a whole or the actions I’ve taken in my life. You are using anecdotal evidence here, bud. The same as you declare Collins as an asshole based off limited exposure you’ve seen or heard on media. You are generalizing people and categorizing based off limited exposure. So what constitutes an asshole? Action(s)? Just action(s) you don’t agree with? Personality? A personality you don’t agree with?

            Seth may or may not be an asshole. But if you watch that Periscope interview you can’t argue that he has a poor attitude. And if you know anything about people you know most of us don’t really like being around people with that kind of attitude, that includes teammates. If a guy like that is in a leadership position on a team you aren’t going find many people that will follow him or bust their ass for him. So he may not be an asshole but he is also not a leader. So defend him all you want, but I’m not going to give a guy like that my support. Now, compare Seth to the Nall interview. Night vs Day! That’s the kind of guy you want leading your team.

            He’s clearly not happy with the current situation. I think his ego is going to keep him from doing what he needs to be a D1 QB. He might transfer but Whiskey is right, he’ll have the same problem anywhere else, unless he goes back to JC where he’s a medium sized fish in a small pond.

            Mitchell and others calling him out for showboating during the spring gave me pause. He’s an athlete for sure but I don’t want a kid with a bad attitude even if he switches positions. Most good QBs have innate leadership qualities abve and beyond their athletic ability. This kid’s Ryan Leaf without the arm or football IQ imo. He may decide to stay but no way he’s our QB for the next 3-4 years. He’ll have to really hit rock bottom before a true attitude adjustment.

    Intrasquad scrimmage was much better than last year. The team is playing much more uptempo and much better offensively. A lot of what we’ve heard about the recruits is true, most notably that Stevie Thompson Jr is an extremely smooth, efficient player. He can put up points in bunches. High IQ. Definitely deserving of the 4 stars he has. They still have some work to do being on the same page. Tinkle is a really good all around player. He tried to dunk on too many people and could hurt himself doing that. Eubanks is very athletic, very active around the basket on both ends.

    Injuries we see: Gomis has a hand injury, Reid has a foot issue, N’Diaye has a shoulder injury. Frontcourt depth is looking thin unfortunately. Depending on freshman bigs is going to be tough sometimes. Gomis and Reid would REALLY be helpful.

    I’d say the starters are going to be Thompson, Duvivier, GPII in the backcourt, Eubanks and Tinkle in the frontcourt, and Olaf-Bruce-Rakocevic-LMW off the bench, in that order. Olaf would probably start if Gomis was in the lineup. We shall see. November 5th vs Western, hope as many people can see as possible.

        Gomis could return as early as the Beavers’ game at Kansas on Dec. 12, their eighth contest of the season.

        Tinkle said senior forward Jarmal Reid is “out another few weeks” with a stress fracture in his right foot and that 7-foot junior center Cheikh N’diaye is still battling a shoulder injury.

            There ought to be a rule in favor of non-ship players for transfer if we’re talking about an SA’s best interest. If a walk-on wants to go somewhere where he can play his sport for free (instead of paying his way), then let him do so with no penalty.

            I know that’s not the case here. But the principle holds. A SA paying his own way deserves to have unfettered eligibility no matter where he plays. This does open up loopholes. But I believe FBS should limit rosters to the same as FCS. Actually, a step up deserves something between FCS and the NFL… somewhere around 61 or 62.

            Then let’s see how much rich boosters make a difference in the game.

    osubeavers.com write up on the scrimmage. I know it’s just a scrimmage but sounds like Steven Thompson Jr just lit it up as that guy posted above. Wish I could’ve gone down and taken a quick peek but it wasn’t in the cards. We plan to attend several more games this season

      Did you not believe Stevie was a rifleman?

      Little Tinks wastes too much energy trying to jump a foot higher than he needs to make a play. In the process, he misses a lot of plays he would see if he played more in control.

      Bruce plays at his own pace, and he’s not far off the college game. Until he gets there, he’s going to look off time. That’s a practice thing.

      The good news is the young bigs aren’t all elbows and asses. They got some hands and feet and hustle.

    Thompson Jr lights it up for 28… Wow I’m liking this squad already. I’m scared that the defense is going to regress as we have a lot of front court injuries(gomeis and Reid) but I think Eubanks is a legit shot blocker and finisher around the rim. Also he’s going to out jump people for boards which is a big plus.

        He wasn’t playing point guard last night and will more then likely play off the ball this season. But I think he can handle it well enough that if we needed him to he could play point. Also he’s a prolific finisher around the rim. Hits floaters all day long. Kid can flat out score

    Some highlights…I’m very upset that they didn’t include the best play of the game, early in the 1st half GPII caught a lob from Tres and put his huevos on someone’s neck. It brought everyone out of their seats.

      Not the best play. The most raucous and flamboyant? Yes.

      Stevie sinking that first shot was the best play. There is nothing more beautiful than ballers who can shoot.

      Jesus Shuttlesworth is asking for an amen. Can he get an amen?

    Watched the “Dive” after getting back from a volleyball match last night.
    When they showed the team coming into the locker room after the CU game, Baldwin was in the picture and he looked like he was about to cry. Not the picture of the strong leader. He looked like a beaten man. GA is a good actor and stays on message. He seems to be a good leader that is confident in what he is doing.

      I caught my first glimpse of the Dive (just switch to Comcast) last night. He has to be one of the most charismatic leaders I’ve ever seen. Seems like the kind of coach I’d want to play for. If we can get some forward momentum on the field, it feels like recruiting could really break loose.

    Nkeal Harry says he’s announcing his school monday. Would be shocked if its the beavs. I expect Arizona, or maybe ASU.

    Something to keep an eye on this upcoming offseason is South Carolina going after Rich Rod. If he leaves Arizona, could re-open things for Eletise (and Harry if he chooses them)

        Could almost double his current pay which is $2.8M this year. Read South Carolina is able to pay around $5M. Not saying it will happen but I could see it happening, and that would be great news for OSU if he leaves.

        that’s what I think too. probably wants to lock something in since a high ankle sprain could be season ending at this point in the year. His stock can only go down if he doesn’t play anymore this year.

    Some notes from Eggers, injuries providing some opportunity and position changes:

    “Offensive tackle Sean Harlow will be lost for the season and will have surgery to repair a broken foot. The 6-4, 300-pound junior is in his third year as a starter and will be tough to replace. Look for O-line coach T.J. Woods to shuffle his lineup, moving right guard Isaac Seumalo to left tackle and inserting redshirt freshman Kammy Delp at right guard.

    Left guard Fred Lauina also left the Colorado game with a hamstring injury. His status is questionable for Saturday. If Lauina is unable to go, redshirt freshman Drew Clarkson would be the likely replacement.

    Running back Chris Brown (knee) and cornerbacks Treston Decoud (concussion symptoms) and Larry Scott (ankle) will also miss the Utah game. That leaves redshirt freshman Dwayne Williams and either junior Kendall Hill or sophomore Charles Okonkwo as probable starting corners.

    OSU coaches are hopeful that running backs Storm Barrs-Woods, who has dealt with a couple of injuries, and Damien Haskins (quad), defensive tackle Jalen Grimble (knee) and receiver Hunter Jarmon (injury unknown) will be able to play Saturday. ”

    Interesting changes to watch:

    CB play and how Okonkwo has developed, will Noland-Lewis see time at CB? ;

    Clarkson > Lauina sounds like a good opportunity, and Seaumalo at LT;

    Hope Haskins, Grimble and Jarmon are able to play, the lack of depth otherwise seems significant.

    Given the absence of Brown and his speed, I’d rather see Lucas get some handoffs than Bolden, but they’ll probably go to Bolden.

    Seems reasonable to expect Utah to win handily, but individual OSU player development – and the progress (?) of the two QB system – probably make the game interesting viewing.

      I was hoping Isaac moved out and Kammy got the road grading job.

      I might be happy despite any outcome. Kam and Clarkson inside is a great great line… in the future?

      Nobody has said so. So I will say Clarkson has been really good at LG. He’s made some mistakes. But they have been few and far between. He held that side together last weekend. Kid is good.

    PHIL STEELE REPORT:
    Oregon State – Offense: #87 – Defense: #85 – Special Teams: #77
    Utah – Offense: #39 – Defense: #17 – Special Teams: #2

    I went against Utah last week and they were in a tough situation and even trailed USC
    42-17 late in the fourth quarter. Normally I like to go against a team that had their
    National Title bubble burst but here I like the home team. Utah has taken on the second
    toughest schedule in the country and was actually playing with mounting pressure last
    week and now will be looser. Oregon State is in a rebuilding year and they have
    struggled on the road, being outgained by an average of 523-260 and losing by 29
    points per game. Utah defensive players may show a little extra passion after their wellliked
    defensive coordinator Kilane Sitake left them to go to Oregon State in the
    offseason. Utah still controls its own destiny in the Pac 12 South.
