07.Nov.2015 UCLA @ Oregon State (Game Thread)

Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes cast)

1:30 on Pac-12 network.

No predictions from here on out, because the Beavs should theoretically lose every game, except the one or two random games where they decide to bring their A-GAME (Ed Ray voice). Is that this weekend? Maybe. Maybe not. UCLA isn’t that great, despite their record. Probably not, though.

Go Beavs. Let’s see some more progress. Past few weeks we’ve had some glimpses of progress…

    Seems like we have a chance to win this one. Classic Oregon weather (50 degrees and rainy), UCLA just barely beat Colorado in Pasadena, and they have Wazzu, Utah, and USC coming up after us. I could see GA getting his first and only marquee win here.

    But I’m not getting my hopes up. I think we lose by 2 touchdowns.

    Just an observation, but compared to the other Pac12 venues, your stadium here has a ways to go. We have highschool stadiums in LA that are probably all around nicer than this one. Do you have upgrades in the works?

    Going to be keeping an eye on the UCLA defense up front today. Good luck today!

      I hope we have some upgrades. Even we think that Gill and Reser really need to improve because both are a bit outdated. Valley Football Center is the next major thing we have going, which is more of a recruiting thing, which should pay bigger dividends in the long run.

      I highly doubt there are high school stadiums in LA better than Reser however.

      I know it’s boring but I would give it to Nall or Woods on first and second down until the Bruins show they can stuff it. College coaches just seem so impatient with their offenses. Storm got 5 and 6 yards on his two runs and Nall got 4.

        No, I’ve always noticed his funky delivery (compared him to Chad Pennington), but it was more that jump step and rag arm. Today the ball position looks different, though. Like it’s too high and far behind his head.

      Baldwin’s first awful call, unless it was a bad read by Mitchell, have to rewatch that. But looks like a bad call. I’m beginning to hate Baldwin and the finesse crap, in general. Trying to give him until next year…but plays like that aren’t going to help him out.

        I’m thinking GA is the kind of guy who won’t put up with it for long. Baldwin has some time with the changes at QB, but you have to score points in the P-12. Sitake has made changes and improved the defense by leaps and bounds. Baldwin is treading water.

          But the backup option is Crowton, apparently. Which also sucks. Baldwin did well in year 2 at all past jobs, so we just have to wait one more year to see if he’s truly this awful or just experimenting/seeing what he has for the future.

    Serious question? Why even consider passing? UCLA can’t stop Nall and Woods. Let’s just run the ball every down and take our chances with those two guys.

    Mitchell is playing rat ball, just rolling out and throwing the ball on the run. They should be running 80% of the time against the Bruins. I bet Nall can get 10 yards on 3 carries over and over and when that doesn’t work give it to Storm on the edge. You also shorten the game by running when you don’t have the overall talent to match up.

    Beavs are really bad on 3rd down. I knew they were bad just from watching, but 115th in the Country? Damn that is bad. A lot of it seems to do with flow. Like on 1st and 2nd down there’s no method. They just do whatever and seem to waste the downs, so then 3rd down becomes predictable, which isn’t good when you have inefficient QBs.

          I’d love to get that type of guy at the college level. Not sure they need a 4-star, but it would be nice. What would be nicer is a smart QB who can make basic throws every time.

    This team is soooo painful to watch. We need some major upgrading in talent level. We have probably 2-3 PAC-12 level defensive players, and maybe 3 best case on offense. Mike Rilay stuck a huge dick in our ass with his half assed recruiting for the past 5 years.

    On top of that our offensive play calling has been pretty suspect to me. Why the fuck are we throwing the ball sooo much? I know we’re losing now, but from the get go. Maybe it is a low talent thing but man.

      Losing these games? What did we expect? Freshman QBs throwing to guys who can’t catch, a line that can’t block, and a defense that can’t tackle. It takes time to teach and update talent.

    I watched the Vandy/UF game, it was not as boring as it would seem. Vandy had a guy at QB who did not know what the hell he was doing, so they handed it off over and over to their good running back and when he couldn’t make a first down they punted. It kept the game close. Beavs could do worse then following something similiar.

    My thoughts on the first half:

    OSU’s offense is boring to watch without a legitimate DI QB. Every time Mitchell drops back to pass, one expects an incompletion and hopes for a completion. All of OSU’s QBs should probably up at PSU hoping to eventually earn some PT in Barney Ball. Mitchell clearly one of Riley’s lower hanging fruits;

    Barres-Woods still looking to be caught from behind on the long run;

    The D is looking better, but I think its hard for them to sustain the effort with 3 TOs. Trending upward. If the offense could score, or take a lead, the D could be having some fun;

    Rosen appears to have some potential. The potential to declare for the draft after two more seasons. He already throws a better deep ball than did Mannion in year 5. Mannion will probably be signaling plays into him in another 4 years…

    Nall is a joy to watch. Looking forward to his futur;

    Might as well keep rolling Mitchell out. Seems to increase his chances. Or maybe Marcus gets the second half?

    OSU’s offense is boring. I can’t watch the second half.

    If they actually play MM it might give some intrigue and a reason to watch, but looks like the coaches can’t even get that right. This staff is not what I expected so far, especially with the QBs. It’s just one bad decision after another. Seth Collins is sitting home right now playing NCAA on PS4 with an edited version of himself (indubitably bumped to all 99s, even in passing) and laughing his ass off at Nick Mitchell.

    I thought GA was interesting in that halftime interview, it seemed to me he was more pissed at the defense than Mitchell’s turnovers. There were some huge missed assignments in pass coverage,. Once Rosen settled down it was child’s play for him.

    I don’t know, it’s just kind of shitty from all angles in this game now.

    But seriously, this team needs a QB. End of story. 2 of the 4 suck for sure. Garretson, we hope, is a savior. At least he has another year to learn things. Should have knowledge at worst. MM might suck, which would make 3 of the 4 suck. Please recruit a JC or prep who is not a project. Even if Garretson is good we need a backup. GA era will go as QB play goes.

The coaches have seen enough of everyone on this team in practice and games that they pretty much know they’re just gonna be slinging shit around for 4 quarters no matter what. The one thing I’d like to see from the coaches is more running clock so we stop losing by such embarrassing margins. Where’s Pettibonehead when you need him??

    Anyone notice the trend of feeling “it didn’t have to be this way” after every game? Like with some just basic football coaching/offensive play calling, moderate execution, etc. Not that I expect wins, but after every game I think “It didn’t have to be this way…this bad”, which to me means bad coaching. Huge GA fan and his early years at Utah State sucked so this is the building process, but I hate that feeling because even if your team is bad you want to be doing things right and just failing b/c you suck (talent wise) not because of the wrong calls, bad coaching, players in the wrong spots, etc. Can’t shake that a lot of this is coaching and especially the offensive side. Not this game specifically — all year. Big picture feeling.

      I believe you are right but I lay the day to day blame on Baldwin not on GA. Sure, in the end the buck stops at the HC, but hes said it many times, hes not an offensive mind and is hands off. However, that said I think its time for him to show why hes the headcoach and make a call. Maybe hes not objective enough, maybe hes got some kind of deal with Baldwin from the start that said he wouldn’t get involved, but whatever it is, I agree with the growing sentiment that Baldwin might be the weakest link on the staff.

        Yeah. Like, I feel UCLA is clearly better and should win this game, but I don’t feel it should be 34-0 with zero progress on both sides of the ball. And the feeling that if they just ran the ball and came out with an obvious and smart game plan (i.e. run, shorten the game since less talent, minimize QB weakness, etc) then things could be different. Not a win, but something respectable. Instead they force this square peg into a round hole and it winds up a joke. This isn’t a one time thing. It’s every week except for a decent quarter here and there.

        He halved Mitchell’s total passing yards for the game with one pass, though. 47 for MM on one pass, 84 for Mitchell on 19 passes. Seth Collins last game he passed for 77 yards.

        It was against UCLA scrubs, though, so who knows.

            would you pay to watch this shit? I thought about going to one last game either today or UW. After the effort today, not happening. You could give me 3 tickets, a 20 dollar bill and a half rack and I’d still turn it down. I only watched part of the first half. After the 2 turnovers and 10 points I said fuck this shit. I feel like I won a little bit today by not watching. Is it just me or is anyone else having a hard time watching the Beavs these last couple of years? I don’t find this offense or brand of football exciting. I don’t really much care for the spread offense. Even CK’s Oregon teams I found boring to watch. Previously it was getting old watching Rileyball continue to make the same mistakes over and over and over. Or maybe I’m just becoming more detached because the Beavs suck so bad. Pretty pathetic the last bowl game was 2013 in Hawaii were the “good old days”. Bring on hoops and baseball please.

            I used to be an optimistic Beaver fan that allowed my emotional state to be tied to the successes and failures of the Beaver football team. Then the 2008 Civil War happened. And then the 2009 Civil War killed any remaining optimism and attachment I felt towards the team. Now, Oregon State games are just another part of the Fall for me. If they win, great! If not, I just enjoy the rest of the football going on during the weekend.

        That they need to get with the program or they’re not suited to be in the Pac-12, which can mean a lot of things… Can’t keep reverting back to old habits, etc.

        The talent level is certainly bad but as we’ve discussed getting old habits out of their system is a big issue BUT 8 games in you’d think we’d be better. Since McG was national QB Coach of the Year by utilizing 3-4 QBs at USU is it safe to say that they had better talent at the position in Logan than Corvallis?

Michigan State isn’t a playoff team and probably didn’t deserve to win with that shitty pass defense, but that non-call on the receiver going out of bounds was inexplicable. I really don’t want Riley to get to a bowl game, so I will be rooting hard for Iowa, though if he follows form they lose to Rutgers and beat Iowa.

      millions. which one of you wouldn’t ink a “lifetime” offer for good money at your job. He left with his dignity and a chance for OSU to rebuild. He probably knew he was on his way out. I believe the man still had love for OSU. As much as I wanted him out! I still respect the coach he was at OSU. And frankly I’m rooting for him to do well. I’m glad we have Andersen!

    Angry is just frustrated with the people who constantly gave Riley a pass. It was always you can’t recruit to Corvallis… Riley is the best OSU deserves….

    It’s nice, as a Beaver fan who knew that Riley needed to go, to see him flounder in Nebraska.

      Note how Luginbill started making a bunch of excuses for NU recruiting and what Opie was doing with a bunch of color glossy pictures with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one?

      All I could think was, “Wow! It’s just hard to recruit to Nebraska. It’s a good thing their coach is a nice guy.”

        I saw that. It was odd and the scary thing is that they put a lot of thought into it, so they wanted the point driven home that Riley has challenges that are not in his control. Does it somehow benefit ESPN to have NU football be a national power again? Otherwise I don’t get the energy expenditure on a 4-6 team?

    How awesome is it that Riley’s one big win this year is illegitimate? I can hear the pundits talking about how bad refs affect the Playoff system. All B1G SoS’s drop. An undefeated team loses to the refs.

    The other cool thing is this raises the P12 in national estimation with Stanford leading the way. That game plus Baylor looking like a bad team and TCU laying an egg makes for a couple really interesting weeks upcoming.

      I read a couple of game articles this morning…….Nebraska football is a weird ass cult! They equate winning on an awful blown call with losing because of poor coaching or execution in crunch time. They don’t see the difference, they truly believe they have been redeemed by the football Gods. Somehow losing to BYU or Wisconsin was just bad luck and couldn’t be avoided and now they are getting what they rightfully deserve with this win.. I hated NU football before Riley, I hate it more than ever after reading this bullshit.

            More than half the player wouldn’t even start for portland state. When you have shitty recruits you can’t make them in to world beater no matter the skill of the coaches. And how many of last year’s starters are playing this year? How many players were in regular rotation? That makes a difference. Again if you think they were going to be any better then they are, you’re either high or stupid or both.

            You could have said the same thing about the basketball team last year and yet Tinkle coached the team up. There were no excuses that players still had CR in them after the season. The majority believed the talent was lacking on the bball team before the season started. Players left early or transferred. It was a major belief that they wouldn’t be able to compete. Then they lose to WOU in an exhibition confirming those beliefs. Had Tinkle had a rough season, the excuses of lacking talent would have been the theme of the year. The blame would have been placed on CR.

      Sure you can be mad about that but the bottom line is that the team is completely unattractive right now with how disjointed everything seems from the performances to the schemes to the attitudes. The main knock with Riley was that we’d be one fucking win away from the Rose Bowl and the coaching staff would turn that exposure into some no-name DE prospect from Keizer. Right now GA and Co. have no positive exposure to work with (partly their fault). Gotta win first, then get the fans to show up, and then see the recruits start to roll in (Riley never completed this program).

    For what it’s worth, I thought your team plays hard. The players are playing about as well as they are capable of playing. Just a huge difference in talent between teams like the Bruins and Beavers. No way around it.

    It may take your new coach a few years to get a conference win, sort of like Colorado. The pac12 is a demanding schedule and while teams like Oregon State can pull one off every now and then, it’s a whole different task to win consistently. Which is probably why I actually couldn’t tell you when the last time the Beavers were even a threat to win their division or conference.

    looks like we know one of the players Andersen is talking about not being tough enough to hang with the program. Gary Horowitz reports that Guyton was sent to the locker room in the second half. I didn’t report it at the time, but during the Colorado game, I saw Guyton arguing with a coach after he failed to realize he was needed on the field and OSU had to call time out because they only had 10 men on offense. I also saw Storm barking at some players last night but I write that off to frustration with overall team performance. Storm is the one Riley-guy I feel sorry for in this situation. And, for all the folks questioning the QB play, ask yourself this: who gave McMaryon and Mitchell scholarships in the first place?

        I agree, he hasn’t gotten a fair shake; and he may yet prove himself to be marginally better than Collins or Mitchell, but so far he looks to be a steep drop-off from the Moevo, Canfield, Katz, Mannion “standard” which wasn’t epic, but those were guys capable of making basic throws. None of these three can. Like Angry said earlier in the thread, it probably didn’t have to be this bad, and Del Rio and Vanderveen would have kept OSU from getting completely embarrassed because an already under-developed defense simply gets exhausted having to win the game themselves. The upshot of that has already been pointed out above: the damage these losses can do to recruiting; like the Tyner fiasco, by all accounts, a few years ago. The reason the “dark ages” of OSU football (which is increasingly invoked as this goes on) happened is that the lack of success on the field became disqualifying to bringing in better talent.

      And really even if GA had kept someone like Del Rio, it wasn’t going to translate to anymore wins, was it? Maybe they beat Colorado? 3 wins versus 2? Not sure it means much in the long term scope of a rebuild. We lived through the 0-18 basketball team, so we have to trust that GA is the right guy and that he will get through this. Plus he’s going to need more than one capable QB if he’s committed to the QB run game.

          To be honest, how do you keep them from being this ugly with what you have now? You can’t “unRiley” the program in less than a year. It remains to be seen if it truly effects recruiting. Every program in the P-12 has been able to come back from a down trend in recent history except you could argue that CU is not there yet but improving. I think it owes more to coaching, there are a ton of athletes out there and legacy programs can’t stack recruits like in the past.. If GA is a good coach, with a good system and they get a good quarterback they will be competitive again.

    what a disappointing effort yesterday. Hardly anybody at the game, the tailgating at Avery Park was barely half full by the time we left to the game. Weather was miserable, although it wasn’t too cold. The gameday atomsphere was weak, and got worse once it was pretty clear Ucla was going to punk us.

    We left at halftime and headed to Bdubs and watched the rest of the half there, don’t like doing that but nobody in our group felt like braving the rain for that crap.

    Mitchell looked poor, and McMariyon once again proved he isn’t a D1 QB. Most disappointing was the defense. Ucla ran through us like water down a drain. I hate seeing what happened for the recruiting aspect, which we need big time.

    I will give GA a pass this year, let him get done with one year first and then reevaluate.

      The score doesn’t show it, but the defense actually did good enough to win. The problem was, the offense kept putting them in bad positions with turnovers and three-and-outs, and they got worn down by UCLA quickly.

      attendance was pretty spare under the grove of oak trees at the Forestry Lot as well. There were a LOT of empty seats in the stadium, to be sure, but with Dad’s weekend the vibe was okay at first; not electric certainly, but buildable in terms of enthusiasm. I took note of Andersen’s comment in that regard; that is, when UCLA was backed up against the goal line and crowd was getting into it. He referred to that as loud. It was loud by this year’s standards, which is what he knows, but not by historic standards: 1999-2006. In those days I thought Parker/Reser was louder than Autzen
