What a weird game.

I guess what we want to see at this point is progress. Did we? I don’t know what we saw. On one hand, the defense seemed to play well, getting some key stops, better tackling, and holding Utah to “only” 27 (that’s still a lot of points, but many expected a blowout). You decide if that’s a step forward or not because I can’t draw any conclusion based on what I saw.

Utah had just under 400 yards of offense. Wilson was extremely efficient, 14/17 200 yards and a TD. Booker had 121 yards on nearly a 5 yard clip. That’s balanced offense by Utah. Meanwhile, if you look at the Beavs, there wasn’t any balance. The leading rusher was Victor Bolden, then Nick Mitchell. That’s no way to run an offense. It’s like the offense is being run in reverse and they’re afraid to use the running backs. Very odd considering the game Nall had last week and that Mitchell needed the help. You can understand why people hate Baldwin based on all this. I get it. If this continues next year I’ll be on that bandwagon, but his resume suggests big offensive numbers and balance, so I’ll wait and see on him.

Regarding Mitchell, I guess it caused a semi-stir when I called him a “tweener” who would make a good backup. That’s what I saw tonight. I like to give QBs more time than just one game before drawing conclusions, so I’ll leave that open-ended. But I feel about 90% sure that’s what Mitchell is. Subject to adjustments as we move forward. He played fine tonight given the circumstances, but I see concerning issues.

Sounds like Collins is in GA’s doghouse and that relationship is strained. My guess is the story I reported here and a lot of the rumors we’re hearing leak from other sites are true. You had to be blind not to see SC as a headcase, imo. Sorry. But it was just so obvious; no hindsight required. If he remains with the team, I think using him inside the 10 and using Mitchell everywhere else is the best option. This would allow Collins to run for TDs when the field shrinks inside the 10. I don’t think Mitchell can make the throws down there anyway. That’s a skill in itself.

Big picture: game went about as I expected (I had it 35-20). Wish I saw more progress. These are painfully slow baby steps. Also, I don’t understand why GA isn’t going after a big time QB recruit. Someone mentioned Davy Moore in a different thread — it was a great point. Why stop recruiting him over personality issues, and then sign a mega headcase like Collins? But beyond that: why isn’t GA recruiting a big time (is Moran really the answer?) QB this cycle? Even if he believes in Garretson, what if he gets injured? The lack of a QB might define the Andersen era. If he doesn’t get a big one this cycle he could be setup for failure.

    The lowest the Utes have scored this year is 24 and have scored as high as 62. Holding them to 27 at their place is good.

    Offense? Ummmm no.

      The defense played better after Utah’s first 2 drives. After those drives I thought they wouldn’t be able to stop Utah all night. Also just looked like Utah isn’t as good as their ranking would indicate. Similar to the 2012 Beavs up through October, before it all fell apart

    Also wish we would have kept our interest in Davy Moore. Seemed intriguing if maybe a little short? Main thing OSU needs is a good game manager with accurate enough passing ability. Being able to mix in some zone read or scramble when needed are also beneficial but less essential IMO.

    Agree that GA needs a high calibre QB and should be able to attract one. Garretson should be a step up from NM but how much we can win in the Pac-12 will be seen. Moran is a tiny bit slower than NM in my mind and I don’t like going any slower than that. He’ll have to show he can throw but I doubt he is much better than Nick in that regard.

    Go out and find a quick enough slinger who can throw with more precision. Easier said then done but definitely a need to have much shot of winning more than a few league games after Garretson. Seth probably is capped at a few league wins a season even if recruits begin to lift overall play.

    I was baffled by a lot of the offensive play calling tonight. Even though the Beavs moved the ball, I didn’t see a “plan”. Seemed more haphazard.

    What happened to the rushing game? Nall was nearly non-existant after 100+ yards last week and being named GA’s “War Daddy”.

    D was decent.

    Enjoyed getting to attend the game. Ute fans were overall pretty decent and provided solid support for their team. Thoughts from the game tonight:

    1. Mitchell is the best option we have at QB for this season. He isn’t going to win games for the team and his arm strength is definitely subpar, but he did serve as an adequate game manager. By and large, he avoided 3 and outs, allowing the defense to rest up in between drives. Simply not a great enough team around him to make up for his deficiencies, though.

    2. What was with the lack of running plays? I am fairly certain Nall didn’t carrythe ball a single time, which is absurb, given how he performed last week.

    3. After the first couple of drives, the defense looked solid. Kept the game interesting far longer than it should have been.

    I believe this team has one complete performance ahead of them before the end of the season. Not saying it will result in a win necessarily, but we will see that one game that will give us a bit of hope about things going into 2016 and beyond.

      I give Miami big credit for having a solid understanding of end game. In that situation the game should only end if youre tackled with the ball, go out of bounds, score, or turn it over. So big picture, never be the guy who gets tackled. I hate hailmarys, cause there is only one chance point, catch or drop. But in the lateral game, the can be unlimited chance points.

    i didn’t watch the game. box score shows one 3 and out, which is improvement, no? no Nall rushes. Taking it easy on norris? Is baldwin trying to be unpredictable? the offense just needs to find a rhythm, not reinvention every week.

    looks like NM ran for at least one 1st down. maybe he needs 10-20lbs in his legs and core so he has a better base from which to throw a better ball.

    Collins has disappointed overall. He’s athletic. I like the inside the 10 idea. His arm seems decent. Not sure where his head is; doesn’t seem in control of his emotions on or off the field. Can he make correct reads at some point or does he think his feet will take him wherever he wants to go? I think his brightest future is at WR in the power 5.

      I thought it was better than expected. I mean, we played less like women than I thought we would. But then, it could be that we played like women, and Utah also played like women, sorta equalizing the woman-ness of the whole affair. So it could be that it was just a matter of us not knowing how womanly everyone really was.

      I think the coaches would know better than any of us. That’s gotta be a fact.

    I don’t know mang, you had a team full of freshman playing against a team full of seniors. Utahs 1 touchdown in the second half started with a 30 yard pass that was a blatant offensive pi that didn’t get called. Probably the best tackling, gap integrity and most patient d we’ve seen all year.

    Only 1 3 and out and against one of the best d’s in the league. No turnovers. Major improvement.

    Mitchell first career start and he made almost every correct decision. Just not quite there execution wise yet, but he’s been buried on the bench. Does not throw a good deep ball but most his, but much better short and intermediate passed.

    I think we beat UCLA next week. Hate moral victories but this was not a bad loss.

    Andersen gave a slight chuckle when asked to process his emotions in the minutes following the game.

    This was different than getting blown out at Arizona. Or the tale of two halves at Washington State. Or failing offensively down the stretch at home against Colorado.

    Yes, Andersen was “very discouraged” about Saturday’s result. He maintains that the Beavers will win when they deserve to win. But after that performance against an opponent of Utah’s caliber, he could not help but notice some positives about the big picture.

    “I love this group of kids,” Andersen said. “I’m never gonna walk away encouraged when we lose, but I do continually see signs of improvement and toughness. There’s no backing down. They don’t care who they play, where they play or what they’re doing. They’re growing up …

    “I’m proud of them, but not at all satisfied.”

    http://www.oregonlive.com/beavers/index.ssf/2015/10/oregon_state_beavers_toe_line.html

    I agree with his sentiment. Injuries aside, they are slowly starting to grow up. And again, I still contend this team will put one together before the season is over and surprise someone that no one expects they will. They didn’t quit at any point in these last 3 games and there is improvement.

    Moran committed when we recruited him as a QB vs a DB like other major programs similar to Collins and I think the reason for that is trying to establish the Chandler pipeline and he believes in Garretson is the answer at QB.

      We’re likely going to get a year with Moran in a red shirt anyway. But I feel like the evaluation of his QB play was what got him the offer as a QB PSA. And he went with it because we saw his abilities before anyone else did.

      That he was already talking to people about the other side is impressive. But I don’t think it’s similar at all to Collins’ situation. I don’t think anyone would ask Collns to play safety… because he has a vulva.

      That is a risky strategy to recruit a QB you plan to convert to S just to establish a Chandler pipeline (if that’s what you’re saying).

      I think that ESPN game where Moran looked bad has soured a lot of people on him. Myself included. But maybe he had a bad game vs a good team and is better than that. I hope so, because he was bad! I’m not sure this staff is very good at QB evaluation. They listed the worst guy as #1, then moved the #3 up to #1. But hey, coaches always know best and depth charts are never wrong!

    You bring up good points about the QB situation. And remember, he had QB controversy at Wisconsin, as well. It can kill a coaching career, as it almost did with Whitt at Utah. Seems like a grad transfer or JC QB might be the best bet for next year. But, who knows, maybe Mitchell will develop over the rest of the season.

    Seth Collins seems like his best fit might be at wide receiver. If he humbles himself enough to accept another position, he might realize that his ceiling is higher there.

      That’s true, Whitt came close to losing his job when he was forced to play that D-2 transfer at QB (or maybe he was a walk-on?) because he had no one else that one year.

        It’s the only way I see the GA era failing. It’s starting to look like a very real possibility. Even if Garretson is the best Qb on the roster, what happens next year if he gets hurt? Mitchell looks like he can come in and play a bit. But I don’t see any of these guys taking the Beavs to new heights or competing for championships, which is what GA says is his ultimate goal. If that is the goal, they need to go out there and recruit the position hard (should take 2 or 3 QBs this cycle, and yet they seem content with just Moran).

          And I’m nervous about any “Garretson” is a savior mentality amongst the fan base. Keep in mind, he was third string on albeit a strong Mountain West team who played decently when called upon. He was performing well against the likes of New Mexico, SJSU, UNLV, etc. I’m not saying he won’t continue to develop, but it’s not the same pedigree.

          I can see Mitchell being a good back up option when his accuracy improves. A lot of teams have a clear #1 at QB, so the decision is easy. Speaking of Riley, did you see how back their 2nd string QB sucked. It could be too early to predict how the GA era ends. Let’s see next year. We might have Garretson a clear #1 and Mitchell #2.

      I’ll say it again. I think Collins has a D’Anthony Thomas-like capability that is being wasted as a QB and wouldn’t be maximized as a receiver. I mean, do we really know he can catch a ball and isn’t another Victor Bolden? To take a page out of Angry’s play book, imagine a backfield of Nall and Collins in the red zone, where defenses have to prepare for both a bruiser and slasher. Even a QB of modest ability, like Mitchell, would prosper in that situation

    Is anyone else watching this KC-Detroit game in London? Again they are using really bad camera angles. I really don’t need to see the top of Alex Smith’s helmet. Everything is hyper-zoomed in and at offset angles.

    If these are the new cameras and angles, the game is actually unwatchable. It’s causing eye strain for one, but it also doesn’t allow you to see how the WRs are setup or anything downfield. Just awful…

    I noticed the Beav game using bad angles last night as well. I guess some suit has determined this is good?

    Was very pleased with the defense yesterday. I think with more recruits and less injuries in a year or two we can have a ferocious defense… But this offense is what worries me. We flat out can not score. Mitchell had us marching all game but dumb play calls/bad execution stalled almost all of the drives. We need more play makers on offense… I think next year the combo of Deltron Sands and Nall will be a very dynamic running back duo. Hopefully in the mean time we can find a quarterback that can ball.

    The offense is sporadic right now. Part of it may be the play calling, but I think a big part of it is the inexperience. It feels like the timing and positions are just slightly off which makes a lot of the plays look “broken”.

    Re: Collins, I feel like the coaches could use the NFL angle to convince him to take another position. There is no way he will play QB at the next level, so why not try a position that you might have a chance at? Or maybe his vulva will hold him back no matter the position…

      He says Riley is in over his head

        I actually like Nebraska fans because it took them a few games to learn what it took [most] Beaver fans a decade.

          Not all. Some of them still say he just needs to get “his players” in there. That’s only going to make them softer. I said congratulations Riley after Nebraska hired him for failing upward for the 2nd time in his career. Some said he’d be more successful with better talent. Many of us laughed at that because we were aware of he and his inane clown posse coaching shortcomings. I did not think the Nebby players would take on their coaches identity this quickly. And you can see the effect it had on OSU players. GA and staff are still trying to flush the Riley out of some of their players.

He threw a tantrum at practice on Thursday over something and Coach told him to stay home and think about it! I was also told he was probably gonna transfer! All from extremely credible sources!

          I went to the USC/OSU volleyball game a couple weeks ago. Sat in the orange courtside seats across from the Beaver Dam. There was a dude wearing a “Dam Director” shirt with three other guys, one of who was a big guy, who were all yelling at the USC girls and calling them “b*tches” and a bunch of other crap. I’m now wondering if he was one of them.
          My spouse is an ex-volleyball player and I have to say that I wanted to go over there and deck them for it. It was an ugly thing to see coming from our supposed student section.

            I don’t believe you. I go to the volleyball games, I was there. I didn’t hear anyone from our student section calling anyone bitch. And I believe that if they did, they would have been dealt with by the University on-site security people. There aren’t enough people at volleyball games, and not enough noise, for that kind of behavior to go unnoticed and ignored.

        I feel the same way on the first part, and I am usually fine with Jack, even when I disagree with him. I’m not fine with him hijacking the thread with dozens of sarcastic posts reviving an old argument that add nothing to the site.

        Frankly, I’d probably be more annoyed with Jack’s incessant sarcasm about women than anything said in a comment before, if I were a woman. Jack’s tantrum is somewhat akin to attacking critics of some aspect of the Black Lives Matter campaign by posting African-American stereotypes everywhere and throwing the n-word around to mock them. It is utterly insulting and not constructive.

            I think what I said was that nigger was just a word, and context was what made it offensive. I can’t quite remember, but I think I also likened it to the word faggot and how gays took ownership of that word so that they no longer allowed others to feel they had any power when using the word in any context.

            And then some people got their panties in a wad about having to *gasp* see a word in print rather than seeing “the N-word” and seeing the exact same thing in their mind. And then I agreed to never do it again unless someone else first brought it up…

            … because you all are a bunch of SJWs.

            The topic of whiskey’s dearly departed is worse than the word nigger, which is worse than misogyny-comedy, which is worse than being accurate in the use of the English language. You all are PC monsters to some degree and hypocrites for not owning it. You feel comfortable making misogyny jokes and defending them.

            This is no white knight or sarcasm or anything of the sort. And I don’t need to stop or apologize on this one because you all validated it. I asked. You said it’s fine. I’m going to be free to say what I want in this arena knowing it’s funny and totally a fine thing to do.

            So stop being a bunch of dried up old pussies. I’m free. You should go ahead and do the same.

            We need an ignore button. Another site I am a part of has that. I’m not sure if you can do it, but that would help. It just blocks posts by certain posters you choose, and you can unblock them also.

          I’m not easily offended. Really, life’s too short and interesting to be offended by what people write on the internet. I read the entire thread the other day, and I know Jack’s trying to make a point in the most annoying way he can, because that’s what he does.

          Why would I be more offended by his comments than the ones yesterday? I’m offended by neither. I already know girls are awesome and insulting men by calling them girls is not something I’m threatened by.

          Jack typically gets stuck on something and it takes what seems like a long time to let it go. I’ve been reading here for a long time. I pretty much know what to expect from Jack. Good sports analysis when he’s serious and late night tirades.

        Whoa there! I didn’t make it this way. That’s why angry can’t ban or censor me. He and others scolded me for simply asking why misogyny was considered funny.

        So I just stopped fighting it, and started using their jokes. What’s funny is that they think it’s some sort of statement of some kind. So I’m free in two ways here. I get to say what I want, and I get to let them think they are in control.

      Jackl sometimes gets into a TROLL mode, like above, and just becomes annoying, which I guess is his intent.

      My feeling is, a troll is ok if he is clever and puts something into it. If not, its just annoying, cheapens the blog and should be eliminated. Ban or delete the boring troll posts, whichever is easier.

      Guys,
      I believe Jack is mad at us for comparing players and people to women and women parts (for his own PC agenda). And so he is punishing us and hopes we will change the way we speak. I would apologize for all of us so we could move on, but we all agreed years ago that we don’t apologize of behalf of others. So there you go Jack, people understand your point.

      Now apologize for having to take it too far as a result of your inability to eloqunetly nor effectively convey your point unto the fellow readers. Or just stop and we all move on.

            Nothing of the sort. Proved you wrong about what?

            I just watched you all freak out. There was some really funny self-righteous bloviation and moralistic weeping going on. The best ones were those same little sermons, but they were accusing me of doing precisely what they were doing. I liked the “punishing us” or “teaching us a lesson” or the groupthink terms like SJW and whatever too. Those were quite funny. People act in funny ways when they face a void where logic and order should exist.

            What I don’t understand is that I got some +1 from more than one person on some comments. I figure it was just some Ducks or Blitzers.

        Havent heard anything about Ionescu. I felt like she was leaning duck a few weeks ago after her brother committed there, but she seems to have a good rapport with Kat Tudor, so I wouldnt count us out.

            see I do that too. There’s a way to troll and flame and not go overboard with it. My honest assessment? Someone else posted it earlier. Little Jack got all butthurt about him being labelled as a feminist or “white knight in armor” (or whatever the fuck angry linked) and decided to troll us as a way for him to continue to feel intellectually superior to those who he felt had wronged him. Look I’ve done juvenile shit too. I’ve posted as Drunk Sark. Lindsay’s four stomachs. But I also think I don’t go overboard with it. Hostile thread takeovers or have conversations with myself posting under a different name. I don’t really care about a trolling attempt. Hell, there’s folks here that don’t like my shtick and just cruise on past whatever I post as well. But that one was beyond juvenile. It was childish. Like a four year old annoying you saying, Dad! Dad! Dad! or continually poking you in an attempt to just get a reaction. If you are going to flame or troll from time to time, at least bring something to the table to discuss that’s worthy or of substance. I’ll admit just as angry did he does have some good posts and insights. Specially with hoops. But lately he’s been more annoying than anything.

I can smell bullshit and a douchebag when I see it. Does that make me better than anyone else? No, it doesn’t. I’ve smelled yours. It exudes 100% douchebag. If you’d actually contribute instead of being said complete douchebag more often than not, that’d be great.

            PS,

    I think what I’ll do is make the forums the main page. Nobody really comments on what I write anyway (not sure anyone even reads it). People seem to just talk about what they want in the comments, so that screams “use the forums” to me.

    That way people can make all their own topics and easily ignore users they don’t like. It’s hard to do in the wordpress template.

    If someone wants to write an ignore user function for wordpress go for it. I’ll give you a good reference in return.

      I can’t fully anticipate what making the forums the main page will mean in practice but I think you’re wrong when you say “Nobody really comments on what I write anyway.” That’s not my sense. Yes, people veer around, and some get obnoxious, but your commentary is the “straw that stirs the drink” around here. Even with its all too obvious flaw (the trolls) it’s a valuable source of OSU athletic information, analysis and commentary.

      Speaking only for myself, I always read what you write but often comment “off topic”. That’s because the current/active thread seems to be the one on which most ab’s read and report current news. I’ve checked older threads and chat and seldom find much in the way of current material.
      I think it is easier to scroll through a single (even 300+comment) thread than to check for new entries on several strictly single topic ones. The addition of the”jump to bottom” feature was a great move, (what, 2 years ago?).

      And so, a couple OT’s:
      1) Anyone else think the entire right side of the Mets infield, especially the right handed 1b (Duda), is sub-par?
      2) And, for those worried about carpal tunnel while skipping past certain posts, try vitamin B-6. Worked for me and, according to at least one study, works for about 1/3 of the population.

    Saw naught but the highlights, but a few VERY light comments on the game because its been discussed in detail by people who saw more:

    The black/white/black combo looked better than I thought it would, they should have put the orange beaver logo on the helmet though. As BeaverBlazer has shown, it looks best on black so the outline disappears.

    Based on the comments, I am surprised at how badly the Beavers continue to tackle; whiffs, arm tackles…Noland-Lewis seems to be one of the worst. The staff seems high on him, saying he’s one of the fastest players they have. Is he over running plays?!? Does anyone else think his speed is special, like it just stands out in the game? I wish reporters would directly ask the coaches about the tackling and how they teach it.

    Can we get Vine replays of Mitchell’s spin move over and over? I realize his spin move doesn’t translate to a photo as well as a hurdle photograph, but give the guy his due…and a nickname. The Spin Doctor? Better nickname than “Air Collins”….

    Looks like Mets manager Terry Collins will be the goat for allowing Matt Harvey to pitch the 9th. Royals blowing this open in the 12th. Series is over. No ring for Conforto. Sorry angry, I know you’re a mets fan. My team hasn’t done shit in 27 years now either

          Duda and Murphy both have zero range and so so gloves. Mets should have D replacements for both, but they didn’t.

          Royals were the better team. A bunch of bulldogs on that team. Hosmer “stealing” home on Duda there was just genius/perfectly executed baseball. Ty Cobb would be proud. I wish the Mets played like that. I wish the Beavs played like that. It should be a lesson to everyone on what it takes to win.

          Mets big problem in this series is the games were only 6 innings due to the Royals pen. Not going to win when you are playing a 6 vs 9 inning game. Collins killed them with some really bad decisions, too. Not just keeping Harvey in, but Addison Reed lost the closer job several times because he is not clutch, and Collins had him in there in their last inning of the season…brutal.

        Storm consistently runs into his lineman. The OL’s gotta be thinking “WTF – run around me or get to the outside.” At least he gets vertical now – right into the guard or the tackle. I always thought that Ward should’ve gotten the majority of the snaps. Nice to see him make the ATL roster.

          I was a Ward fan too. In the old regime I figured Storm’s personality and easy interview style were factors in him being the featured back; still, he did have a good YPC record. He continues to say the right things but hasn’t been a consistent runner since the concussion (or near concussion).
          The running into his blockers and going down at first contact drives me nuts; even worse when it takes carries away from Nall. I really don’t understand what the staff was thinking and their expanation is lame.

    I also find it extremely comical that many pundits and duck fans were talking about Mariota the savior being the next Joe Montana after that week 1 performance over the lowly Buccaneers D. I said, let’s see what he can accomplish against a real NFL defense. I was called a hater. Week 2, Mariota the savior looks pedestrian. Everyone says, it’s just one game.

I don’t see any way around it unless I change, and the odds of that are about the same as Seth Collins suddenly learning how to throw a football.

          He looks pretty good on those first two blocks, that’s for sure. He doesn’t appear to be particularly big.

          OL tape seems pretty hard to evaluate.

          Need to know his size. His foot work is ok, that’s coachable. I don’t like that his arms come down to his sides, when he’s making initial contact on passing plays, but that is coachable also. His feet come together fast when starting a drive block, still coachable. Needs a little better vision on pull blocks, overall he’s got some potential. If I knew his height and weight it will make it easier to evaluate, but he seems fast enough and looks like he has a good frame.

            So he moves good, frame is good, footwork is ok, need to see a complete game to better evaluate footwork. Handwork is ok, he seems to be a little grabby, that’s OK as long as he doesn’t get caught. I don’t think he’s a tackle. He would be good inside guard or center. Definitely a center if he’s smart enough.

Jackette is an avowed “vagitarian” with an obsession for female gentialia. I have advised his nurse to check under his tongue when he supposedly taking his bedtime meds.

    Anybody else wish they would get rid of replay, since they screw up the reviews about 40% of the time? Miami. Out play Michigan and lose because of clock management. MR could not have done it worse. No replay and I’m on cloud nine this week. I live in CFB hell.

      I’m with you on the replay thing. Feels like it’s more a tool to extend games and get in more commercials, and getting the call correct is just an afterthought. With games lasting well into 4 hours now, instant replay is the first place I’d cut to make this game more watchable.

      I had to go look up what happened in the UM v UM game. It sounds like the clock management was bad. But it also sounds like the replay call was correct. Are you saying you don’t like replay because this time it went against you? What if he had been called down at the one but replay changed it to a TD? Would it then be a good thing?

      You can’t avoid the Miami replay. That was just bizarre. But I don’t feel bad for Duke fan. Now they know how the world felt when the ball went off Winslow’s hand, and the refs went to replay and still got it wrong. At least a national championship wasn’t on the line in this one.

    I just watched Doug Taumoelau’s video. He’s pretty big, fast and violent, I’m not sure why he isn’t even listed as a prospect on most sites. I’m not saying he should have 3 dozen offers, but the kid is clearly a prospect.

    I wonder if he’s a potential LDS mission guy? Speaking of, I haven’t heard much about which of our commits or targets might be mission guys this year.

      There was a 4 year OL for Utah who was pretty good with the same last name. Percy Taumoelau. Maybe a brother? He was a late bloomer too. He wasnt a mission guy either.

      I dont think any current commits are mission guys, but i think Sione Finau will be a Beav on signing day and then go on his mission.

    I know it’s not going to be a popular thing to say here, but my impressions of Mitchel was he is pretty dang good. I know the stats are over whelming, but he seemed to be so much more poised and in control of the offense. And that being said it was a very good defense he went up against. I’m not saying he is all world, but I definitly can see him being able to lead us to a lot of wins with continual improvement.

    He seemed to scramble pretty well, and it was crazy to see him, at least appeared to know where the marker was on his scrambles and fight for that last yard. A knock on Collins is he just hasn’t seemed to be aware of those things. I can see Mitchell, with valuable experience, and a good off season, being a solid starter, and worse case a very good backup to garret son.

    Just my 2 cents, I came away pretty impressed with him. Another guy who looks small, but gaining experience and strength this off season who looks to have a bright future is Jonathan Willis. He played fast and hit people, like I said he is pretty thin, but I believe he is a freshman.

    I have a lot of optimisism for even the potential next season. Kind of excited to see this team grow this year still, and if we can get a big upset (uncle, uo) than I feel we can have a great deal of momentum going into the offseason. I know that seems crazy for a 3-9 record or so, but things feel pointed up.

      I agree that things are trending in the right direction, though it doesn’t show yet in the record. Holding Utah to 27 at home, and 10 first downs in the last 3 quarters (?) was improvement.

      I think the staff is finding players and roles right now (Nall, Willis), and sending some messages to the program. The recent recruiting progress on the defensive side of the ball is very encouraging, as long as the staff can hold onto them.

      Agree with Angry’s point that the lack of a legitimate QB recruit – not a developmental project – is troubling. I am beginning to wonder if Andersen doesn’t have a small school mindset; “I won at Utah when we had Brian Johnson (perfect season, defeated Alabama in Sugar Bowl), I won at Utah State with ___, I don’t need a bit time QB recruit.”

      While a college team doesn’t necessarily have to have a 4 or 5* QB with a rocket arm, this system is going to need two smart QBs who can throw the ball. That hasn’t been Collins so far. It sounds like there is trepidation it isn’t Moran (who will benefit from a RS, so he has time to improve)…Garretson may be smart and efficient enough.

      An efficient, accurate(?) Garretson, making the right reads and handing off to Nall et al, should be a huge improvement next year.

      Now that Andersen is making a connection to alumni (Jackson, Bernard, Simonton) I hope he brings in Hass/Stroughter/Rodgers/Wheaton/Cooks to inspire the WR group.

      Regarding upsets this year, I feel like UCLA is a better chance than UO for some reason. In the CW I’d love to see “Nall Out War” with Nall going off for over 200 punishing yards at Autzen in a low scoring OSU victory…but I won’t expect it.

        If you look at the composite on 247, Moran is listed as our 5th best recruit as an 85 rated 3 star. He’s thrown for 2300 yards, 66% completion percentage with 16 TD’s to 6 Ints. He’s also ran for 727 yards and 9 TD’s. 6’3″, 185 runs a 23 second 200. He might be a 4 star by the time it’s all said and done.

        I don’t know what to expect from Garretson given his limited tape. And I worry about how the QBs are evaluated, practiced and played given what happened for the first half of the season. I have been told ad nauseum by SC fans here that Mitchell can’t run a lick. I knew this not to be true because I’ve seen his HS tape. And now I know it’s not remotely true in game situations.

        But what if NM improves and shows some good play as the season progresses. What if he gets hurt, and MM does the same because SC is now in the (rumored) dog house? DOes it all go out the window next spring/fall? Do we get another “QB competition” that feels completely arbitrary?

        We can win in this system. I think Jason has the right term. Stability is most important for a QB to demonstrate in order to move forward. But are the politics of the coaches in this one position allowing for any stability?

        Agree with Angry’s point that the lack of a legitimate QB recruit.

        To be fair, everybody was already off the table last year. He tried to get Austin Kafentzis, who screwed up by believing Paul Chryst would give him an honest shot at QB. They settled for what they knew was a Hail Mary with Collins. They simply didn’t have time to make inroads with many guys because nearly everybody was off the table.

        This cycle, we have a solid prospect already. I’d say Moran is a high 3* prospect right now, could easily have been 4* if he hadn’t been stuck behind another D1 caliber player until this year. We did good to get him early, in my opinion. Next year, we’ve offered a high 4* guy (Tua Tagovailoa) and a low 4* guy (Avery Davis). But I bet, in fact I’d bet a lot of money, we end up with high 3* Tayler Katoa. Still, those are all three ‘Big Time’ prospects.

        It sounds like there is trepidation it isn’t Moran

        What trepidation? He looked bad in two games, which happened to be the game where he got stitches on his throwing hand in the first quarter and the very next game when he admitted it still bothered him. Other than that, he’s completed over 70% of his passes, over 15 yards per completion, with 16 TDs and 3 picks.

        The kid can throw.

    This was the best the Beavs have played this year. Mitchell was the most stable performing QB we’ve had so far. His long-ball throwing motion seems very strained like he may lack strength or maybe it’s just mechanics?
    Bolden had his typical drops and head-fakes-for-no-yards jukes.
    Villamin will improve as he gets more PT as will Mitchell.
    I’d like to see Nall more.
    I didn’t miss Collins at all.
    Our D rose to the occasion more than once and looked inspired.
    Overall I was very pleased with this performance.
    You guys that watch a freshman play a few games and then freeze his abilities at that level for life would benefit from a more patient outlook.

          Actually, I would watch the first drive just to put the improvement shown during the game into context. Players who were making mistakes and hesitating stopped doing so. The second “drive” is mostly just a long pass play. So it doesn’t save you any time.
