    Flag inside Reser is up. The multi colored valley football center is ready to be revealed. (Why is the back white, but the sides are tan?)
    Other than the funky color palate, I think it will look fine as long as fans show up.

      Not sure why they couldn’t bother painting the sides also unless they have something else planned for it. Be like a half day’s job. Apparently the section of concrete near the east side is also a different color because they poured it on a different day. Maybe they’ll paint it tartan!

    *****Warning**** Weather report

    Per looking out side My window after making Breakfast, clouds are moving in. Game time 2:00 PM (civ) 14:00 (24) the rain chance will be 30%. By half time chances for rain increase to 40%. Just in time for the fire works. Check out the game link they gave us.

    I have to ask will the Beavers’ Offence have a 40% of raining down touchdowns today or can the Beavers’ Defense wash the Bangles offence off the field? To me it will be a rain soaked game with tempters ranging in the low 60s.
    I’d advice going taking wet wheatear gear.
    At any rate “Happy First” home game of the season. You been warned

        NDSU’s line was getting handled in the first half. They made some adjustments at half and just kept trying to run the ball. That last drive that should have tied it was just them shoving the ball down Iowa’s throat. It was impressive.

        My big beef right now is the waste of space. If you are standing (not sitting in the chairbacks), there’s only so much room to be able to see the field – basically you need to be standing right behind the top row of seats.

    Hate to say it, but the offense is predictable and lacks an identity and a commitment to the run game.

    And either OSU’s WRs are getting separation, or Garretson isn’t seeing them? Even when he rolls out and buys time, there’s really doesn’t seem to be much there. Makes me think perhaps all the WRs are overrated?

    Offensive line looks atrocious (we knew that). They should feel embarrassed, and I expect them to have a fun half-time meeting.

    Came out energetically flat and overconfident, but Garretson carrying the team emotionally and showing the rest how to just play football (even with his mistakes), hope he stays healthy and that trickles down as the season goes on. But we still look like a glorified JV squad overall.

    I wonder if they stockpiled the roster with like 20 talent deficient lineman before bolting for Lincoln on purpose, sure is holding back our rebuild :(.

        I will agree that he’s not throwing the ball well. He has a tendency to open his hips and not step into his throwing motion (kinda like Tommy Armstrong) so everything is coming out of his release flat and hot. Needs to calm down and settle in, but easier said than done when he doesn’t trust his o-line to protect him from that fierce Pocatello pass rush.

        I feel like he’s showed up and played hard both on the road against a Big Ten school and at home against a FCS “cupcake”. That’s very Sammie Stroughter of him and this team desperately needs that to get through these kinda painful rebuilding years.

          I’ve said before that Garretson was a decent QB (not even a starter) on a decent non Power 5 team, a lot of people want to make him out as some kind of savior, understandable given the atrocious QB play last season, but it’s not reality. It’s questionable that he’s even P-12 caliber at all, but he’s by far the best the Beavs have.

    Wasn’t that impressive a play by Bolden- Villamin had a pretty nice block on two defenders and then Bolden just used his speed to dominate inferior athletes. He put a nice move on the defender about 10 yds out, but more bad defense than anything.

      Bolden does things like that on kickoffs. He’s good in open space when he doesn’t have to make a catch with this hands and can use his body to catch (punts/kickoffs). The problem is he doesn’t catch with his hands.

      He’s a good backup, bad starter.

      Regarding Nall, It looks like there is something wrong with him or else the Ducks defense made him look like the second coming of Franco Harris last season. It might be a little of both, I thought he looked slow on many plays during the Minnesota game and my thought then was either he’s injured or he gained weight. He didn’t look a better today.

    Garretson looked good except for the 3 long passes that were over thrown. All 3 should have been td’s. Bolden actually had a good game. Villamin second game now drops a pass right into his arms. Definitely a better team this year but we have been compared a lot to Colorado but Colorado gave Mich. the fight of their lives today until Co’s qb got knocked out.

      Maybe not, but it’s not like the Pac-12 is looking like world beaters from top to bottom.
      Boise State – looked okay, but really untested. Tough after a bye week.
      Colorado – looks good, but if the QB is hurt, they’re screwed.
      Cal – looks average at best.
      Utah – looks very good to me.
      Washington – looks very good.
      Wazzu – hasn’t impressed me at all.
      Stanford – is very good.
      UCLA – looks good but vulnerable to losing games they should win.
      Arizona – looks fairly poor to me.
      Oregon – looks adequate, but frankly, a pale imitation of what they were.

      We could snake out a couple more wins.

      Did anyone else notice how Nikegon didn’t get away with WR holding in this game? It was such disrespect that their final drive was shut down by a penalty which actually wasn’t a WR hold.

      Nebby’s discipline is so bad that the refs had to call as many penalties on them as they did. Nikegon’s D was that bad too. But there were about five really poor calls on their O, one which should have been a completely different penalty on them.

      It was a pretty lousy game, overall.

        Awwww, did your feels get hurt cuz we said naughty things about Riley? The fact is Riley wouldn’t have had the time he got at any top program in the country. Did he help with the climb out of the hole….sure. the problem is he couldn’t finish games, beat teams that should have been easy or even get a 10 win season. He had the rose bowl in his grasp twice and couldn’t do it.
        The other problem is fans like you (if you even are one, which I doubt) who are just happy with just mediocre teams winning a few games and playing in the Vegas or Emerald or idaho potato bowl every three years. You are an enabler, enabling a mediocre coach to get off the hook.

        It’s laughable that you clowns show up and spout off about how good Riley is……like the guy just won the National Championship. He beat a mediocre at best, Oregon team. Congratulations, maybe you can take his nuts out of your mouth long enough to tell all the nebraska fans about the faux “giant killer” teams Riley coached, hell you might be able to get those fans to start a hashtag…….#giantkillercornhole.

        Teams play to win, Riley didn’t know how to win. Just like the current team…..they don’t know how to win…….yet.

      When Riley first came to OSU, it was 26 years. When he ditched OSU a couple weeks before signing day it was 28 years.

    Mike Riley had an overall positive impact on the Oregon State football program, and I’m kinda surprised that so many people on this website are denying that. I’ll chuckle at any time he mismanages the clock and Banker’s inability to defend the read option or a Hail Mary pass, but at the end of the day, Riley isn’t a terrible coach. His last few years at Oregon State just made it clear that we needed to go a different direction with the program to revitalize the program. I’m glad Mike Riley is no longer coaching at OSU, but I have no ill will towards him or any success he finds at Nebraska.

      I don’t hate him either and much like you laugh at the same mistakes he repeatedly makes. At this point in his career, he is what he is. Is he a decent coach? Yes. Great coach? Not even close.

      Much like you I am glad he left and both parties went different directions. But what you are seeing on the field at OSU is a byproduct of his and his hired friends laziness in recruiting towards the end. He may have helped build up the OSU football program, but he also failed to maintain it and let the boat take on so much water that it needs a complete rebuild. THAT is on him. He’s also went 6-7 last year and 3-0 so far this year with Bo Pelini’s recruits, not his. Let’s just see where both of these programs are after 5 years have passed since the coaching changes happened.

          Riley was driving the program into the ground and was pouting like a baby when BDC finally called him out on it. Riley is incredibly lucky that Bo Pelini was the coach at NU, they were looking for someone who had at least had the perception of competency in coaching AND the perception of being a class act on and off the field. Pelini’s antics really had NU on pins and needles, Riley was the antidote, but he won’t be for too long. NU has a history of firing coaches, even after multiple winning seasons.

    Let’s examine how “great” of a college football coach smilin Mike really is………….

    in 15+ seasons

    102-87 overall record
    61-68 Conference record (Pac-10/12, B1G)
    Conference championships: Zero
    Conference championship game appearances: Zero
    BCS bowl game appearances: Zero
    New Years Day bowl game appearances: Zero
    Best conference finish: Tied for 2nd (twice in 15 years)
    Losses to FCS teams: 2

    And his best bowl game was in 2012 losing the Alamo Bowl to a weak sauce Texas team.

    Yep, that’s a great coach alright. Children of the corn got themselves a real winner. GA has proven nothing yet. I’ll concede that. But the fact remains Riley is NOT a great coach.

        You’re 0 for 3. Both years they finished tied for 2nd. A civil war win would have meant a co conference championship. 2008 with USC, 2009 with Oregon. Both times OSU would have won the tie breaker and Rose Bowl berth. 2008 was tie for 2nd with Oregon, 2009 was a 3-way tie with Arizona and Stanford. There was no conference championship game in the Pac-10 so where you get the idea they finished 3rd in the standings after losing the civil war is between you and the voices in your head.

          I’ll give you 2000, but only because it was a three-way tie for first. If it was only us and UW, we’re a clear 2nd place. As it was, a crap non-con schedule cost us a RB invite.

            You’re right on 2000. I wasn’t 100% correct. It was a 3-way tie for first. Oregon had also lost a non conference game to someone. I don’t remember who. As for the others? I don’t/didn’t make the rules when it comes to bowl game picks. They’re weren’t slotted then and they aren’t slotted now. For right now in the Pac-12 bowl selection committee’s may choose among tied teams or go one spot below in the standings to make their pick after the Rose Bowl participant. Be that as it may, Oregon St STILL finished tied for 2nd in 2008 and 2009 (yes you are and were wrong) and yes due to those rules in place OSU got the shaft in 2009 and fell all the way to the Vegas Bowl. 2008 they got it right as the Holiday was the 2nd to choose (they choose Oregon over OSU), which dropped the Beavs to Hell Paso. 2009 was the clusterfuck that saw a team play for a chance at the rose bowl drop and all the way to Vegas.

            Incorrect.

            They were slotted then. The only out a bowl had was to be able to pass on a team if they had them play recently. That’s how we play a fourth and fifth place bowl in that string of four third place finishes. If it was a hard lock, we would have played four Sun Bowls in a row.

            That’s the way it is. We were playing for first and ended up third both years. Manufactured ties for this or that position are just whimpers of lost hope held together by baling wire and chewing gum… staring sadly at a scoreboard as the supposed tie is thrust into reality.

    Yanni completely whiffed 3 delayed blitzes straight up the middle.
    Seth could not create separation at all.
    D line got more sacks but less pressure overall. They didn’t look great. Lack of depth is evident.
    Garretson looked jittery in the pocket, it’s evident he doesn’t trust his line, no matter what he says.

      Garretson is as accurate as the Cal QB, yet when a ball is thrown behind cal receiver they catch them. Why is there such a gap in performance? It’s infuriating. And I’m not talking about the long ball throws.

          Looks like recruiting should focus on Juco Oline players for the next 2 years. This team needs big guys who already have experience and coaching that can come in and play immediately. Hopefully Kearsley shakes the cobwebs out and can start contributing something other than stupid penalties soon.

      Meanwhile, Eastern Washington which lost in overtime to NDSU in their last game was: Down at the half, 24-7, their all-American receiver out, QB struggling. Baldwin replaces the starting QB (Baldwin says he has 3 qbs capable of starting) with #2 who brings the team within striking distance and in the final seconds (fake field goal) throws to a 4th string receiver for the game winner – all in the midst of a howling wind.

      I cringe to imagine what EW or NDSU would do to the Beavs.

      Cheney is hardly a destination point, (unless you plan to hunt pheasant) crappy stadium (fans are beginning to coalesce to change that).

            Little known fact of Coke Zero’s roots at OSU. Coke Zero was tested by Oregon State University’s own food sensory lab before it was sold to the public. Students and community members were sought for the taste testing and were given gift cards as compensation. I was one of the testers while as a student and have fond memories of the countless tests I took, as well as the 6 pack of label-less cans we were given to consume during a weekend.
            I was tired of it still by the time it was released to the public but now it’s the best calorie-free cola on the market in my opinion.

    Riley is a solid coach but he has to get rid of Banker, I know players on the team that say he’s a dunce, Michael Rose said the guy doesn’t know left from right and acts proud of his lack of knowledge and is a straight up dick on top of it. That he runs middle school level defensive schemes. When a few teams torch us this year he will be under pressure to fire Banker and if he doesn’t he will be shown the door. If they win a few unexpected games then next year when the simple defensive schemes lose games we shouldn’t lose. Unfortunately Banker holds Riley back and it’s too bad cuz he could do so much more with a decent defensive coach.

      Roberto Nelson. Didn’t he do a Sports Illustrated interview stating he had hundreds of offers? He was also graded higher on the services.

      It’s interesting that ESPN (92 grade, 76 ranking) rated Nelson higher (Thomspon at 86 grade, yet 51st ranking). Maybe the recruiting class isn’t as strong this year as when Nelson was recruited.

      Stephen Thompson was 61st nationally with an 86 grade, about the same as Ethan Thompson.

        Forgot Nelson was so highly regarded coming out of high school. So given those rankings, E Thompson is still more highly ranked than Nelson and S.Thompson.
        I guess we’re getting into the ugly territory of comparing rankings from recruiting sites at this point, which is rarely an accurate way to compare guys.

        Jack, do you remember how Benjamin was perceived nationally out of high school? I want to say he was in a top 50 level although recruiting sites/rankings were a very different thing back then. He was talented enough to get drafted in the first round after 2 seasons.

        I’m fairly confident he will be a beav. I have no inside knowledge however but just based on his comments

        “The top three are Oregon State, Syracuse and Stanford,” Thompson said. “Stanford is obviously a great academic school and has a great coaching staff. And obviously it’s in California. Syracuse has a legendary coaching staff. Far away from home in the cold weather, but they are also a great basketball program. They always make it far in the NCAA tournament.”

        Fresh off an official visit to Oregon State, Thompson had a special experience in Corvallis.

        “I had a wonderful time. It was everything I expected and more – great coaching staff,” he said. “And now I met a bunch of people – from the president at the university to the compliance. Seeing my family made it more special. Just thinking about that. It could be an everyday possibility.”

      Brett Rypien, Boise State’s QB, is the first real passing threat our defense has faced this year. He’s pro style but mobile enough that we need to respect the run threat. Smart player too. Afraid he’s going to have all day to throw, and will just pick us apart.

      Or maybe we’ll pull a surprise complete game out of our ass and get the upset?

      I think the BSU game, in terms of competition and timing, is a very interesting measuring stick for OSU at this point.

      Like Minnesota, the Beavs are understandably ‘dogs, but it should be winnable. How do the Beavs respond in the game – like when BSU “hits them in the mouth” – and how do they respond in terms of known weaknesses (blocking, pass rushing, WR play)?

      The Beavs are going to have to come out seriously fired up for this one. Boise State plays really physical, turn up the intensity to a level above theirs. That’s the only way we’ll have a chance. It’ll also help if our star players make the plays they’re capable of (I’m talking to you, Villamin and Nall).

      Meh…

      If everything goes right, maybe Riley becomes RiLLLey this year. A 10 win season would give them reason to excuse what should have been a 10 win season last year, save some bad luck.

      It would also excuse next year’s 6-8 wins because it will be a new QB. And Riley’s system is hard. Never mind that it’s harder when you’re taught to move the pocket by standing in a fetal position.

      The capital gained from this year’s success wanes in year 4, because Riley’s system is really hard to grasp… and he makes millions, so you can’t question him. Never mind that NCAA football coaches were paid about as much as a mid-manager in the professional world 30 years ago. The Cavalier dominionist attitude has always been a stupid one. Argumentum ad crumenam unsurprisingly and often leads to argumentum ad verecundiam.

      Anyway, they will be facing a losing season, and the grumbling will grow louder. Then they roll off a win streak to end the season and give some hope for the next, that eternal hope. He’ll be kept despite fan turmoil. And he’ll roll off another 10, maybe 11 win season… with that QB who finally gets it.

      And that three year cycle begins anew, getting closer to the lower lows than it ever gets to the highest highs.

      If they can live with that, more power to them. It’s not my problem anymore. I have a head coach who wants to be here… and has a mess to clean up.

      “He’s got big hands, great grades and like many players with a Nigerian background, he’s dedicated to everything he does.

      “Strict parents,” he said of the secret to success.

      So don’t be surprised if he suddenly starts climbing the recruiting charts when others catch on to the skills he possesses. He’s not worried one bit whether he has two stars, one star or no stars.

      “I’m just happy to be out here doing my thing,” he said. “It’s what you can do on the football field.”

      College recruiters who work hard to find top recruits will eventually find him and then shake their head wondering how he’s supposedly the 288th-best receiver in the nation.”

        >What did the likes of James Rodgers, Cooks, and Wheaton run in the 100m? He doesn’t quite have their speed, correct? The size/speed combo is impressive if accurate.

        Assuming that 10.77 is legit, it’s really fast. Wheaton ran a 10.72 his junior year of college. Cooks best in high school was a 10.76 as a junior. I couldn’t find Rodgers’ 100m times.

        I’m not a track fan, but it seems like he’s pretty fast to me.

        Tyler Asemota: 100m 10.77, 10.80, 10.81. Article claims 10.73.

        Brandin Cooks: 60m 6.81, 6.87. 100m 10.72.

        Markus Wheaton: 60m 7.05, 7.01. 100m 10.58, 10.72.

        Victor Boldin: 60m: 7.05, 7.25.

        James Rodgers: 60m 7.03, 7.05, and 7.00.

        Note these are college times for Cooks, Rodgers, and Wheaton compared to 11th grade times to Asemota. Apparently he doesn’t run the 60m so it’s harder to do a direct comparison. Cooks was fast in the 60m, damn!

        Found them on http://www.athletic.net/.

        Other notables:

        In high school Paul Lucas ran 10.68, 10.70, and 10.58 (PR) in the 100m.

        Xavier Hawkins ran 11.38 PR in the 100m

        Trevon Bradford: 10.85 PR in the 100m.

        Edit: good to note that 100m times don’t necessarily translate to football speed. Even 40 yard dash times are broken down into 10 yard splits at the NFL Combine, and the difference in a players acceleration broken into 10 yard splits makes a huge difference in a players “football” speed because you’re rarely going to be sprinting for 40 yards in a straight line, let alone 100m, in football lol.

      A two star WR who may be under rated at that. Fine.

      When the heck are we gonna hear about several OL and DL Juco’s who can play??

    Does anyone else get the feeling that Ken Goe has a personal vendetta against Oregon State fans?

      Do you mean his passive aggressive comments about the Beavers or how every Beaver story he writes turns into a Duck story?

      Ken Goe is a turd in a punch bowl. If the beavs played an almost perfect game and blew out ISU, he would still complain about something. I like his stab at the terrace, “almost empty” it looked like it was pretty full from what I saw. Yes there were some empty seats but those people could have been drunks drinking up top. I know I would have been. Don’t give that hack clicks.

    Per Kerry Eggers:

    TE Noah Togiai and LB Landry Payne have both been ruled out of Saturday’s game vs Boise State with knee injuries #GoBeavs

    Any rumors about the frosh PF who had the knee injury. Is he going to be cleared to play this year?

      Likely out for the year. Earliest could be ready is January. Redshirt is likely.

      Only if there is a desperate need do they use him this season.

    How I would grade Clune’s performance if I was GA:

    -First, I would give the most weight to how our D does against P12 North teams that we should be competing with such as wsu and cal and ducs (35%)

    -Next I would give most weight to how our D does against P12 south teams that we should be competing with such as zona, and utah (25%)

    -Next I would weight how our D does against the strongest P12 teams such as Stanf and UW (13%)

    -Next I would weight recruiting (13%)

    -Next I would weight how we improve in areas needing improvement from last year (13%)

      I’d look at it game to game, doesn’t matter who they are playing.

      1. Do the players respond to his coaching? Will they follow him anywhere?
      2. Did he have the right game plan?
      3. Did the players execute the game plan?
      4. Is he making the right adjustments at halftime?
      5. Is he putting in the best players to execute the game plan?

      He can only do so much before it’s on the players. He can put them in the right positions but it’s up to the players to execute.

        Still, our primary goal needs to be to compete to win the Pac 12 North. The first thing I care about if I am GA is winning the Pac 12 North or making progress on that issue.

        Secondly, don’t look stupid in games we should be competing in.

          I’m wondering if the team is playing to there competition? I asked this up above and I’m patiently waiting for the boise game to confirm my suspicion. If so I’m hoping GA can get that shit knocked out asap.

    It did feel like they weren’t mentally “up” for this game like they were for Minnesota.i hope this was an aberration and they aren’t gonna play up or down for the level of competition. Need to be always up
