14.Nov.2015 Oregon State @ Cal

Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes cast)

7:30 kick off on Pac network.

Beavs have historically played well at Cal, but it’s hard to see how this D is going to stop Cal’s QB. I can’t find any intriguing reason to watch this game. I’ll check it out to see if there’s any growth but not expecting much.

38-10, Cal.

Go Beavs.

    Never trust a coach named Dykes.

    He was asked what worries him facing Oregon St. I tuned out. The answer is nothing. This game I do not expect to be close. Cal has not been playing well. OSU is just what the dr ordered

      It will be a strange game….Cal gets the early lead, but a tornado hits, sucks up most of the Cal team…..only four Cal players left. OSU still has trouble getting any offense going, with false starts, incompletions, fumbles and such. Cal holds on to the early lead and wins a nail dragger….

    If the score holds tonight, we could be a Cal upset of Stanford next week (definitely not out of the realm of possibility) from Oregon being in line to make it to the Rose Bowl in their down/rebuilding season.

    That thought is just depressing.

          Since they would all be 1-1 against the other teams in the tie, the next tiebreaker is division record. Oregon would have 1 division loss, and Stanford/Wazzou would each have two.

          Oregon does. Dickhead, I mean Ted Miller covered this on the pac-12 blog. It would come down to conference division losses. Oregon would only have 1, Stanford and WSU 2

    Well when you have 52 freshmen on your team, you most likely will be a smaller team. Plus, you only have 37 schollies on defense, after red shirts you have barely a two deep at every position.

        He has a pretty good highlight reel. That’s pretty disappointing. You’d think with the number of receivers we’ve signed the past few years we’d have some more studs. Just Villamin.

        What happened to Jarmon? He looked so good last year, but this year he’s majoring in Dropping Passes. Taught by Professor Boldin, I believe.

      Arizona, Cal, and Oregon are worse in yards per game. Oregon, Arizona, and Arizona State are worse in points per game. So not the worst defense in the Pac-12.

      Overall OSU Defense is 93rd in Yards/Game and 94th is Points/Game.

Some good balls and alot of overthrows, poor throws, and misreads. I wonder about McGivens, or if its just the talent. Crowton hasn’t made a difference.

          He’s the CEO so at one point or another he’s gotta be more “QB focused” but that’s why I thought he brought in a veteran OC and an OC/QB COTY, right? It’s on all of them though that they’re not in play – at least it seems that way – with a high star HS QB and or a JC guy… There’sx no way they think that Moran will come in and be the answer. NM, MM or Chicken Head could be a lot better next year and still not be Pac 12 starter level. Don’t get me started on the D. Broken record but #17, #12 and #14 shouldn’t be on the field.

          Any thoughts on our walk-on safety Ovgard? He wasn’t perfect but at least it seemed like he had a pulse. I’d rather have guys that look like they care, get the meaning of the Civil War and sell out to make plays. But at the end of the day talent trumps…

          BTW, I’ve seen video of Brennen consistently telling his receivers to catch with their hands yet VB always catches against his body. Three years of coaching and he catches (or attempts) like my 4th grade girlfriend. WTF?

          Lastly, doesn’t matter since he’s not the answer but NM’s “wind up” release makes Mannion’s release look like Aaron Rodgers.

          It looks like lack of talent to me too. Riley did a pretty nice job of hiding it. I truly did not think the Beavs were going to fall into the realm of being mostly non-competitive. That’s a little scary to me. You look at programs like Kansas or Wake Forest who had some success in the recent past, lost it and just can’t get it back. I hope OSU does not fall into the category.

            I don’t think that will happen. Wake Forest is an academic school and basketball school caught in a bad location (i.e. semi SEC territory) and Kansas is the worst State in the Union, and another basketball school. OSU has a good location working for it, and the coach is a proven program builder and winner. I’d say better location and coaches than those two programs. I think OSU will be fine, but I did think good coaching could overcome some of the talent issues. Now I realize it can’t. Almost everyone objective (mainstream media) had this as a 2 win team, and for once they were right. I think I read there are 52 freshman on the roster? If so, that is insane. That falls on Riley squarely. He apparently didn’t know how to build a roster or stagger scholies after 30 years in the business.

            I believe the 52 freshman is when you count freshmen and redshirt freshman. So that is 26 in each class. So that is really only a little heavy. At 20 per class for five classes you get 100 players. Considering some attrition in upperclassmen, 26 is only slightly heavy.

        Really good point. I think that the staff is pretty balanced but you’d think we’d be stronger on D. Constantly whiffing and being out of position isn’t just a talent issue. The football IQ of the guys we have playing at the moment has got to be pretty low. Hill back peddling as the RB came right at him made me sick. He wasn’t even being blocked. And he whiffs as the dude runs by him. Reaction? Looking towards the night sky and clapping his hands like “shoot, better luck next time…” I’m perplexed when GA tees up Noland Lewis and Hill during his pressers when we constantly see them whiff or miss an assignment. These guys should’ve learned basic tackling in CYO/Pop Warner and it’s not like they’re freshmen…

    Man we need a lot of help. Only positive I took away is Paul Lucas seems to be a good talent. I wonder why the staff hasn’t let him carry the rock prior to this game. I actually think he could be a good tandem back with Nall for the next few years, and it could give teams trouble because both those guys can spread out wide and run routes as well. The only problem with that is we need a qb, if the staff can’t solve this problem in the off season next year will be just as bad on offense.

    Defensively I didn’t see any positives to take away. We are such a soft team. Peko had a few good plays, and he does seem to get in the backfield a lot. Since we’re thinking future here, I really think we need a couple JC d lineman, and at least one linebacker. That and cross our fingers Irvine and Wallace can make a impact next season.

    If I was in the staff I would be going full force at JC recruiting. Qb, d line, and a linebacker would help us out tremendously. Willis seemed to look pretty good at Utah, but this week, I saw him getting ran over constantly. All in all, my positive vibes are slowly dwindling. I thought we’d be better, at least competitively. This season dampers so much expectations for next year as well.

          A 3-4 win season would probably be within the range of reasonable expectations given the regime change,scheme changes, and youth, but winning the CW would represent a significant success in my estimation; at Autzen, breaking a 7-year losing streak to boot…..

          It would represent program improvement, because Riley would have done neither (CW win and recruiting results). Also, Riley/Banker probably would have lost to SJSU.

          Depends somewhat on how they beat the Ducks, a solid effort (few penalties, smart playcalling, consistent and clean fundamentals) against a full strength Ducks squad which doesn’t make a lot of errors would make the season a success only when combined with a top 35 recruiting class. Oh yeah, throw in word that Isaac is coming back.

      I didn’t have high hopes for the O this season, defense is by far the biggest disappointment for me. Strong has regressed (when not out with injury), Mageo has not lived up to early promise, Grimble has been limited, and, in general the fundamentals are still lacking. I honestly did believe the D would keep the Beavs in at least 10 of 12 games………..live n learn.

      No surprise GA says pass rushing DE’s are one of the top priorities for recruiting. It is, however, surprising that he never seems to mention the need at QB….is he putting all eggs in the Moran/Garretson basket?

        I don’t understand why he isn’t going harder after another QB, either. Even if he likes Garretson, then Collins is the backup (bad) and Mitchell/MM/Moran after that. So 1 deep, really, and that’s just because we’re assuming Garretson can play because he’s older and knows the system. That might be wrong, and then what? Need to bring in much much more QB talent, imo. Riley always had a QB. He even made Armstrong decent at NE. It was the one thing Riley was good at. Makes me wonder if one of the QBs who transfered might have been better than all these guys. When it comes to analyzing QBs, Riley > GA. No doubt. Riley is worse at everything else I’ve seen so far.

          Began to wonder the same about the qb’s who left. Did del Rio wear concrete shoes? Figure an upperclassmen with ability to read, accurate arm and no legs would have put up more offense than these guys this year.

          Why would anyone -1? I despise Opie the coach but Angry’s onto something here… I really hope McG is a lot better than his QBs are showing.

          NM can’t complete simple throws, his release takes about 2.5 seconds and I haven’t seen him complete a pass to the leftside of the field. You’d think after 10 months he’d be a little better…

            OSU has three eligible QB’s on the roster. A true freshman and two redshirt freshman. All three who quite possibly may not posses the tools be D1 caliber quarterbacks. You can put lipstick on a pig. But in the end, it’s still a pig. Angry also stated spread offenses rely on good QB play. And OSU does not have one right now capable of doing that. Fact. Add in 50 other freshman and some candy assed Riley hold overs who absolutely cannot or just simply refuse to put out effort and you have the dumpster fire we are seeing now. What I’m seeing is youth, lack of talent at some skill positions and a few quitters on the field. Hot garbage. This is a coaching staff not accustomed to losing like this. The players however are. Let them recruit and flush the Riley mindset out of the program. Sucks now but patience is a virtue. Learn some.

    I’m thinking this team is pretty close to early-mid 80’s bad. What we’re seeing isn’t just a team with depth issues since the starters are lousy too. Opie effed us big time but GA and staff have got to show us some evidence that they’re coaching these kids up. The staff budget was increased by what, $2.5-3.0 mil per annum minimum, right? We are in for a much longer rebuild – 3-4 years before it gets better imo.

Hey, I’m still bullish with this staff but when was the last time there was this much of a drop off? Even the 3 win Opie teams were better than the continuous shit shows we’re seeing every Saturday. It ain’t just the talent – there’s something really wrong with this bunch and the coaches haven’t been able to figure it out.

          I can agree with what you’re saying. But I also feel like I’m not yelling at the tv when we have 3 timeouts and 2 minutes before halftime, and we’re kneeling the ball. Having talent and getting out coached sucked.
          That being said, I think GA has lost some of the upperclassmen and they can be causing more bad than good to the younger players.

            I agree with you wholeheartedly on clock management. Opie would have taken a knee before the half so no Villy TD but we also harped for a long time about leveraging whatever talent we had instead of forcing a system. I thought we’d run Lucas and Haskins until the Cal D stopped them but no. The Nall deal at Utah. Handing off to Bolden if it’s not a jet sweep is guaranteed to lose yards. Candidly I’m not seeing a lot of innovative plays so I trust that they’re dumbing it down but man…

            The upperclassmen may be poisoning the well but they’re most likely not playing since I’m assuming GA won’t put up with that crap. I’m grasping at straws I guess… I predicted 4 wins this year but I didn’t think we’d get to this point. Been outscored 95-24 over the past week. That’s Joe Av bad.

    I think GA is treating the players much different than Riley. He probably screams and yells in his motivation tactics. Inside source tells me there are “lots of holes in the walls” from GA punching them or coaching staff in the offices around the VRC. Seems interesting if you ask me. I don’t think these players are used to the hard nosed culture GA brings. These are just assumptions of course… I was talking to my cousin and I told him GA is the polar opposite of Riley. The extreme change is probably only good for a handful of players. This group probably needed a coach somewhere in the middle. Sitake seems so quiet on the sidelines and GA reminded me of Riley standing by himself and very quiet. Probably planning his exit plan. Lucas, Nall and Collins(as a WR) will be great in the spread next year. We just don’t have the athletes to run that offense this year.

      “Lucas, Nall and Collins(as a WR) will be great in the spread next year. We just don’t have the athletes to run that offense this year.”

      Reflecting back on Riley’s alleged, and self-proclaimed plan to update his offense: vary the tempo, have a mobile QB, incorporate some read option, and looking at the roster he built: Vanderveen (HS running QB, poor thrower), McM (mobile HS qb, not D1, easy to sign), Mitchell (long slow release, ok mobility for moving the chains, not DI, easy to sign), Del Rio transfer (pro style, live, but inaccurate arm), Penysl recruitment (pro style QB, no mobility) it all reflects Riley’s lack of commitment to any true plan or – gasp! – offensive identity.

      It was like he was kinda sorta going to maybe try to update his offense and take advantage of the fact that defenses have to account for a dual threat QB, but he just wasn’t really sold on it. He ended up with a menagerie of non-solutions and bailed before he had to do something with it and tarnish his .48366 career winning percentage at OSU…..

Hopefully some more athletic OL to hold on the edges like the ducks. I’m not a fan of the spread, but damn they look like shit trying to run it. So flashes of brilliance with Lucas.

    I think GA’s just getting a head start on tearing down Valley. Interesting it that’s true.

    GA’s sideline demeanor has never bothered me and he’s called out guys on the field. He certainly looks engaged, At least he isn’t joking around with Sitake like Opie used to do with Banker while getting their asses handed to them. With that said I was hoping that we’d see better fundamentals with what we thought at the beginning of the season as an all star staff. If we won 4 games and saw progression then I’d be a hog in slop but I can’t even describe what we’re seeing right now. We are one of the worst D1 teams in the country.

    On a side note, I still think Baldwin is calling too many pass plays. I do notice sometimes we get a 5-7 yard run and then we get an incomplete pass on 2nd down. This forces us to throw again on 3rd. And another 3 and out. He KNOWS our QBs are garbage at throwing but keeps trying to throw. I get it, he’s trying to mix it up. But he’s not playing to the strengths of his team.

    I keep seeing lots and lots of dropped passes, and poor attempts to be in position to catch the ball. The lone remaining Riley assistant coach is coaching the receivers? No wonder why they miss the big picture- catch the freaking ball. He probably just has them mailing it in instead of working on their ball catching muscle memory. At this point, I think all our receivers look like great DB candidates.

        I do understand that Moran, DG and some other OSU targets are from the same school, so that might be part of it. It just feels like GA could do better. I hope I’m wrong!

          His QB rating is 111, he accounts for 31 TD’s. He ran for almost 1,000 yards. At what point do you start believing the stats over the film? I believe his team is in the state semi-finals. The kid is a winner. Was a captain as a Junior when he was the backup to a kid that signed with ASU. I think we could do alot worse.

          Depends. He’s surrounded by 4 and 5 star talent. His #1 WR is probably the best WR prospect int he West and a 5-star. Lucas is a 4-star. There’s a ton of other talent around him.

          His mechanics are weird, and in the game on tv when those players around him were injured, he looked bad.

          Running for 1,000 yards is impressive, but OSU needs someone who can pass, make decisions, run — in that order.

            His motion is a little funky, but its like cocked and loaded, and he keeps the ball up high and fires it with his arm. So, his arm strength probably isn’t the best, but he has quick accurate passes. Unlike Mitchell whose delivery is low and long, his is high and quick, but its also short so he won’t throw very far.

            He is very good runner, quick and fast. In addition, his size is good. He probably will grow into his 6’3″ frame and looks like he could easily add 30 lbs.

      Talked to someone who knows a little about the qb situation. Said there are 2 qb’s they like for 2016. My guess is that means Moran and Struck (that’s just me filling in the blanks though)
      Also sounds like theyre high on Garretson. Again, my guess is Garretson starts next year.

      Nothing official so take that all as just rumor/speculation. Doesnt sound like there are any other prospects in the works you havent already heard of

Do you think Andersen and staff fully comprehend the significance and importance of winning the Civil War? From looking around this state, if you aren’t an OSU student, alum or fan, you wouldn’t even know OSU existed! OSU gets no respect or recognition from local media. Hell, even the Gazette Times reports more about hole, than they do the Beavers! In the stores, there is such a poor selection and representation of OSU merchandise, the list goes on and on. But, win the Civil War and problem solved, it’s that important.

    I’d feel a lot better IF there was a top notch JC QB (3 to play 3 or 3 to play 2) who fit the mold of what the staff is looking for and was willing to attend a school that didn’t have an airport.

    I’d feel even better if there was news about the staff talking to JC linemen, both OL and DL.

        Some of the complaints are nonsense. The reason the Badgers have not gone into the tank this year is because of GA’s hire at DC, Dave Aranda. He is a great coach and will get a HC gig in the near future. Chryst is an excellent offensive coach and has adapted to his players strengths this year.
        Badgers have a hard time running the ball this year. Injuries have played a part, but several of my Badger friends tell me the O-line depth problems go back to Coach Pig Boy’s last two years before he skipped out to Arkansas. The walk on thing may be legit, but the S/C issue is bull. They are not as strong on the O-line because they are playing young guys instead of 4th or 5 th years guys. It sure has not hurt their D which is much more athletic.

      Thanks for the link. Hard to take seriously, as it is just full of conjecture. There is no way to validate most of his criticisms.

      For example, two criticisms were Andersen did not recruit the O line and state of Wisconsin hard enough. Here are the commitment percentages of O linemen and Wisconsin players as a percentage of the total class for Andersen’s last 2 years, and this year:

      O line: 19% (2014 class), 16% (2015), 14% (2016, so far)
      Wisconsin players: 23% (2014), 26% (2015), 19% (2016)

      So, Andersen seemed to focus at least as hard on these tenets of Wisconsin football as the current staff. How many of this columnist’s other arguments are equally non-factual?

      Even though GA hasn’t singled him out I’m submitting Nick Mitchell’s name. I’m doing so because several players have mentioned how he goes about his business unfazed and imo that’s an indication of toughness.

      As an example, here’s a quote from a story in the Trib:

      “We started to get on a roll,” said sophomore receiver Jordan Villamin, who caught seven passes for 83 yards and a touchdown. “Things started working. Wish we could have had more points and less penalties.

      “But Nick did really well. Didn’t seem like he was fazed by anything.”

      What’s interesting is that’s the reply I get nearly every time when I question the common response to terrorism, which is that we need to kill more people. They respond with, ‘well, what else should we do?”. It’s as if the know killing people doesn’t solve anything, but they feel it must be done. I suppose it satisfies the human need for vengeance in these situations.

          I’m not an expert on terrorism, so I read what experts have to say. Getting at the financing, breaking down networks, and police action domestically helps. Killing individual terrorists on the ground rather than bombing from above, which results in creating a sense of terror for innocent people, is more effective as the bombing essentially creates more potential terrorist recruits.

But that brings up more questions, people claim the house of Saud is behind a lot of the financing. If that’s true, the government should answer for the cover ups. And that goes back to Carter’s era, and every president since. The world will never be short on terrorist shit heads, weather we take them out one at a time or nuke the whole area.

            In the case of SA, if you want to talk about the 70s, you need to start with the oil embargo and the back-channels that ended it (for the sake of killing Commies… and Cambodians).

            Carter human right initiatives (calling out the Shah on human right violations then mums the word with Saud). After the fall of the Shah, and russian afghan war started, Carter releases the Carter doctrine. ( Reagan extended it) it was to 1. Protect our intrests (Saud’s oil) 2. Keep Russia honest in the region. Which is fine, but it was partially pushed by Saud to cover for the Ayatollah Khomeinis rhetoric of overthrowing the muslim monarchies. And I think he’s a poopie head. And you are right it started way earlier than Carter. But I was really referring to the rise of modern terrorism and how it seems Saud is behind a lot of it, mostly financial.

            No. The Saudis don’t put it on social media. I believe that’s because they black it out within 50 miles of the stadium holding that day’s festivities.

            Seriously, though, because it’s a state sponsored thing (at two to three times the net rate Daesh does it… not counting honor killings) they can relieve their bloodlust with human trafficking and public torture instead. So that keeps the numbers down in a per capita sense.

            But just stop giving them money and arms, and they will stop forwarding all of it to al Qaeda and Daesh, who give it all back to us with the best of intentions. And then stop doing the same for Kuwait and Qatar.

            Does it matter? I refuse to take part in the “like” culture. That means I don’t care about pluses or minuses. Nor have I ever hit those buttons. If I like or dislike something, I have the will and voice to say so… or not. I refuse to give my freedom up to that littlest of masters.

            Land of the free means you are free to receive criticism and opinions of others when you put something out there. It doesn’t mean your opinion deserves immediate and unparalleled respect and a nice little cuddle bubble protecting it from people who never got that memo.

            And… it technically only applies to governmental censorship. So beyond people being cynical, it also doesn’t apply to private entities who aren’t supported by the public trust.

            Exactly right, Jack.

            As a private site, I don’t have to do anything, but I think it sets a good example/contradiction for the trend of more censorship and “safe zones”.

            I actually find the most frustrating part of online discussion the fallacies/logic problems. Also when people don’t comprehend or purposefully mis-comprehend just to get offended and argue. So much of this going on right now all across the internet. It’s brutal.

            For a long time people here censored themselves, which was awesome. That’s still generally true but has regressed a bit, and I think it’s due to (a) feeling comfortable around one another after years and (b) the general online trend toward arguing about everything in comment sections and (c) maybe some are testing my limits seeing if they can get banned.

            It’s interesting, I guess, how the trend is toward more trolling/arguing than ever online, and at the same time more censorship. It probably means the average guy has little tolerance and a short leash.

            I find taking insults and shitty comments on the chin to be an interesting experiment in how much tolerance I actually have. Too bad more people don’t view it that way. Instead they just say they are tolerant, then in-tolerate everyone who thinks differently or pushes boundaries.

      Same talk just a different day. He’s clearly looking forward to the future, which he should be. A JC/transfer would be wise IMO. I don’t think we were ever in the running for Golson, but he just got benched at FSU, he would have started all season for us pending injury, maybe we need to use that angle and go after a QB who might be in a battle for PT next season.

    Also, excited for T. Cook to come back from that pectoral injury he suffered this summer. That would be quite a bruising backfield if Nall, Haskins and Cook can all stay healthy. Maybe Lucas and Artavis Price (sp?) as our speed guys. Where does this leave C. Brown though? Out of the mix, or just run tons of guys? With the amount of injuries our RB core has sustained this year, I think it would be wise to carry as many RB’s as possible. I am still waiting for us to become a run first team like the coaches said we would be and understand injuries hamper that effort.

      Nall, Lucas, Haskins, Cook, Sands, Price (redshirts) are all fine; but they need some “tough” road graders up front who want to run the ball down the field.

      And given the option, OSU needs tough WR blocking (would Collins block as a WR?). Some WR holding out their on the edge always help free the RBs for long gainers…. right Jack?

          Sorry should have clarified, I believe MM will get the start if NM can’t go, and VanderVeen would come in if MM goes down or is playing poorly. Personally I would like to see MM get a full week of prepping as the starter as NM is only 48% completion rating and has more INT’s than TD’s, but GA really likes NM for some reason so I don’t know what will happen.

          UCLA is a blue blood. They will always get the benefit of the doubt. Just look at the tourney seeding last year, they didn’t even have to play a play-in game after going 20-13.

      Thanks for using good judgement and not talking about rape in the 1st comment of the new post.

      To answer your question, Riley will ignore it or give a 1 game suspension if it’s true. But maybe the guys didn’t do anything wrong. We live in a rabid everything-qualifies-as-rape era now, so it’s possible the girl is crazy or she had ‘buyer’s remorse’. We’ll have to wait to hear all sides of this one.

      But this goes to my point on that California Yes means Yes Bill — guys are going to have to get recordings of consent to protect themselves. Especially high profile guys like football players. I definitely would not want to be in college during this era. I mean we are not far from drafting contracts before sex.
