Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast)

This is a huge game for recruiting. You can see the visitor list on the Twitter feed. Not only that, but this senior class has played for nothing all year, other than laying the foundation for future success; it would be nice for them to actually accomplish something and end the Ducks’ streak of 8 straight wins and go out on a positive note. They know this and will lay it all on the line. For those who like schadenfreude, the Beavs can relegate the Ducks into last place in the North. It’s like the “Battle of the Roses”, in reverse.

I don’t see any way the Ducks stop Nall, which will setup passing opportunities for McM. Meanwhile, the Beavs D, despite being thin and gassed most games, has played well for the most part. “Next man up” is playing out for that unit. If the Beavs lose this game I’ll be shocked.  Crowd should be wild, as it’s Resers’ first sellout in ages.

Should be a good day and nightcap with some recruit commits.

31-21 Beavs.

    Go Beavs!!! But I must admit I won’t be surprised if the ‘ucks win. They’ve recruited better talent over the last 4 or 5 years and talent usually wins.

    Win or lose I’ll be happy if the team doesn’t look like shit. Give it your best guys!

    And here’s hoping the OC calls a game that’s best suited for McM’s talents.

        Beaver pass defense is legitimately good. Run defense, not so much. I’m in agreement, but the secondary can’t get burned in one on one situations and I think they need to pick Herbert once in the second half to win the game.

      True. There were a couple balls that I was sure got tipped at the line. They were just wobbly, it seems like the harder he tries to throw the more they waggle.

      As long as they’re accurate and on time they can go end over end as far as I’m concerned.

        Are you watching this game, or just going by raw stats? This game reminds me more of his past performances than last week watching his throws. His low YPA (5.77) shows you that he’s hitting short stuff ok, but not anything long/medium. Just watching him he doesn’t look good this week passing yet.

        You rang? I think he either didn’t want to run or the coaches told him not too. “I” never said he couldn’t run. “I” thought he might be scared. That’s not the case it seems maybe the coaches weren’t letting him run til now. It’s actually a pretty smart game plan for late in the season.

      The crowd was angry about all the passing and shit for the first bunch of series in the second half. I was hearing very loud grumbling about not running the ball. I promise I didn’t start it.

      Then the rain and wind hit, and people were cheering because they knew we were only going to run… and they were giving each other high fives.

      And then the onside with the phantom offside happened… and nobody was really that upset.

      That’s when I knew we were going to win.

      That phantom offside, btw… I haven’t watched the tape… was the ref tossing the flag before the kick? I don’t know why I was looking at him at the time, but I was thinking he was reaching and tossing the hanky before there was any possibility for a foul to be committed.

    Finally after three civil war losses in a row, redemption in Corvallis.

    Coaching staff does not abandon the run.

    This team has toughness and is gaining in talent/skill.

    Despite two really bad calls, we prevail.

    Solid game plan today.

    Great day for recruiting as long as the rain doesn’t scare them away.

    We beat Oregon at their game running. Pierce and Nall look great.

    Not a good day for Bolden. I appreciate him but sketchy at times.

    Great day for the seniors. Thanks guys. Harlow should be the MVP for
    the season. Unselfish. Nall was great but Harlow solidified the line.

    Game ends up 34-24. Angry calls it 31-21. Nice.

    I’m not sure why on the post game they’re also saying Pierce is faster than Nall. Not true from what I see. They’re also saying Pierce has “shimmy”. Nall is not just a downhill runner. He dances around and jukes just fine. It’s weird that because Nall bowls people over everyone assumes he’s just a downhill runner. He’s a breakaway runner, a juker, and he can bowl people over.

      He keeps his shoulders turned up field, and moves laterally then forward again with surprising dexterity and quickness and defenders seem to buy into the more limited description of his abilities. Fine. 5 YPC on the season, power, breakaway speed, can catch…

    Post game presser. GA compliments McMaryion again this week for his smart play utilizing the game clock and says that was the plan all along. I don’t recall how many times many of us stated the way to beat the ducks was with a ball control offense that eats up clock keeping their offense off the field. They’re going to score points, don’t panic and stick to the gameplan. Who’d a thunk it? Don’t need to throw the ball all over the field to beat a team like that (RiLLLLey).

    Great play calling and execution. Followed the game plan and ran it down their throats. Really like mcmaryion with the keepers. I think at some points he was surprised to be as open as he was. Nall and pierce with some huge runs. Pierce was critical because he was able to spell Nall for a series without any change in running success. It’s going to take a helluva QB to overcome McM as starter.

    Really sucks that beavs aren’t going bowling. I think they’d have a real good shot at winning too.

    After finally calling down a bit, I’ve gathered some thoughts,

    1. The weather dramatically changed the flow of the game into the beavers favor.
    2. If I’m Oregon, I’m wondering how they didn’t put the game away in the third.
    3. The team showed a lot of heart in the 4th quarter.
    4. I think it’s fair to say the beavs didn’t benefit from any bad calls.

    Great win for the program. MM will be the starting qb at the beginning of next season. The other guys need to push him hard though.

    Still a lot of work to compete at the top of the conference.

        I’m not so sure of that. I’m paraphrasing, but there was even a quote from GA today about “seeing how long they will have to play offense this way”. GA does not think McM is the answer, but he may not need an answer, he just needs a competent game manager for now. GA also said somewhere that a P-12 offense needs to score 40 points a game to win consistently. McM isn’t GA’s choice, but maybe they are stuck with each other for the time being?

          He’s a good player. Might not be great, but he’s good and has upside yet. If GA doesn’t think he’s the answer he should tell him and not string him along.

            If he can get a scholarship offer from a school with better academics, maybe. I doubt he’s thinking of getting to the NFL. The best thing about football for him is the scholarship.

            It may be unfortunate that McM didn’t get an opportunity until the other QBs were injured, but he now has a resume of league play and empirical results. He helped break the CW 8-year losing streak. Its hard for anyone to unmake that or to go backwards to someone demonstrably less effective.

            I think he ought to work his ass off during the offseason and come back with a stated goal of starting.

          I’d like to see Andersen’s quotes to that effect. He has said he is considering an “air raid” approach, and it looks like the recruiting class could have quite a few promising WRs.

          But you’ve got two more years of Nall (maybe 1?), Pierce for 2 – 3 more, Green and others in the pipeline, and west side, late season Oregon weather. Does he really want to get that far away from a run game? Not that a team can’t run out of those spread passing attacks, but that seems like a solution to a personnel issue OSU doesn’t have anymore (lack of rb depth, lack of run-blocking lineman).

          There was a time an air raid approach sounded interesting when Riley clearly wanted to throw, wouldn’t commit to the run game, and run blocking seemed to suffer as a result, and it felt like OSU needed at least ONE coach with some aggression.

          But with some of the early discontinuity in the program – Sitake > Clune, Baldwin > Dual OCs, I hope a major offensive change isn’t in the works. I think the OC approach needs to settle out, and the WRs need to contribute consistently. Not to mention the ability to have at least a two-deep of TEs, which has been lacking most of the year.

          Agree OSU needs to score more points and more consistently. But 34 points in yesterday’s weather is nothing to scoff at. Take away the weather, add some WRs who can separate and catch, a couple of healthy TEs, and OSU gets beyond 40. Then they have to do it against good+ defenses….

    I think helfrich is done at Oregon. More so because of his lack of hiring on defense. Failed to replace Aliotti with anyone decent . That’s where he really came up short. Had the talent but not the coaching on that side of the ball. Helfrich won’t be out of a job for long, but won’t be a head coach at a power 5 for a while.

        I just don’t get where Nebraska fans thought Riley was going to be any kind of coaching break through. I understand that they didn’t want Pelini to embarass the program anymore (and that makes sense), but to expect Riley to get them back to past glory is just not paying attention to college football.

        For that last freaking time, Riley and his staff had talent at Oregon St. and actually UNDER ACHIEVED at times due to his prep, planning and in game managment. Get that through your thick skulls!

          They won’t. They still think he went there because they’re a blue blood, and we’re a flailing nobody of a shit stain. They have to ignore that Riley didn’t go to USC… and that the program they think is a flailing shit stain is that way because of a guy who was in charge of it having zero vision and less effort… for 12 years.

          They also think Langsdorf went to the NYG because he is that good… not nepotism and finding safe haven from OSU fans and admin.

And as you said, they don’t appreciate how unique Chip Kelly was; it wasn’t just his offense and pace, it was his focus, attention to detail, his constant competitive drive.

        UO has the resources to regain relevancy, but it may not be quick turnaround unless Knight could pull someone like Saban or Meyer away with his “$10M” offer and whatever long term Nike benefits they get. They still have plenty of offensive talent, but its the D that’s going to take longer to correct.

          Exactly, Chip’s hyperfocus/OCD and attention to detail were once in a generation. He coached like a cult leader, totally getting everyone to buy in to every word he spoke along with the ideas of grandeur. It worked. Master motivator day in and out. And that’s what great coaches are, because all of them know the Xs and Os.

          Oregon thinks they can just hire a guy who runs the spread and get back to glory. Nope. They need to find a master motivator, and there are very few out there. Luckily we have one of the few. Odds they try for GA? lol..??? :/

          Point taken on CK and his offense but here’s a counterpoint…………..

          Statistically? Oregon’s D was average at best under Aliotti (Duck fans referred to him as Allowalotti). Oregon would put the clamps on with the up tempo offense and getting opponents behind early and panic. We all saw it over and over and over again. Those defenses gambled quite a bit. They could. They usually were ahead. When other team would panic and abandon the running game, they would feast. It’s a bend but don’t break strategy that worked due to CK’s offense.

          Another counterpoint is that Oregon could run up tempo all day long and the could not substitute and eventually wore out. I don’t remember what year but that is no longer the case. If the offense substitutes, the defense is allowed to do the same and the referee will stand over the ball not allowing the offense to run a play. That negates an advantage they once had. Track athletes in open space against tired opponents = success and big plays.

          Angry is spot on that CK was/is a brilliant mind. In college football. Doesn’t work and won’t in the pro’s where every player is big, talented and fast (unless you are the brownstains. Fuck Cleveland.) He was a once in a lifetime coach that every other coach will be unfairly compared to in Eugene. The wet dream is CK comes back. He failed in Philly and the forty whiners are a tire fire. That isn’t his fault but he chose to be in SF. He hated recruiting and schmoozing boosters. But things/feelings can change and maybe he might realize his system is best utilized in the the college ranks. I don’t see any names out there that the Ducks could bring in that would change their fortunes overnight. Saban isn’t coming. Neither is Urbs. But money does talkand PK does have a shitload of it. Stay tuned

            No, they never played great D in terms of stopping people. But Kelly compensated for that by challenging his D to get TOs and score and his special teams to score. And they did.

            When I say the D turnaround is going to take time, I mean for two years its been atrocious. Hoke will be gone with Helfrich. There willl be a new coach, maybe a new system, new terminology, and they’ll need a bunch of pampered kids (see UO players’ remarks throughout this year) to buy in, toughen up, and provide leadership. Then they’ll need to execute, avoid injury problems, recruit, etc. I’d say that puts them at 2019 at the earliest, which would be Herbert’s senior year. Between now and then there’s likely some mediocre bowl games.

            On the offensive side, they’ve got the speed and I think they’re set a QB for three more years unless a total new system is brought in.

            But they won’t get back to the Kelly level unless their D and ST are scoring, and/or they develop a D that can actually stop people. Which in NCAA football seems like a thing of the past for most.

    Complaints of a lack of innovation, uninspired…competitors catching up…Ducks football?

    Possibly more troubling for Nike is the sentiment that its pipeline of hot new products has run dry. “I don’t see a whole lot of mis-execution at Nike,” said analyst Andrew Burns of D.A. Davidson. “What I hear from the critics is a lack of innovation, newness. Flyknit, (a groundbreaking footwear technology) has been around for four years. It was great. But you can’t take credit for that forever.”

    Camilo Lyon, an analyst with Canaccord Genuity, echoed those sentiments, calling Nike’s new products “weak and uninspiring.”

    Of course Nike is still in the lead and Ducks football is not, but I found some of these parallels amusing. Chip Kelly = Flyknit? Apparently the Mariota Sports Performance Center didn’t, well, perform.

      Flyknit and primeknit don’t correct the crap “technologies” that are the soles of these shoes. But they do lead to a correction of the soulless labor abuses that created their billions of dollars of profits over the years. Now they can automate production of plastic socks attached to foam souls with a glue gun.

      But don’t tell me some neato story about how the idea was inspired. We already know.

      You know they’re trying to apply the “new” tech to the production of their plastic clothes as well… wait… knitting in the round is not new tech? You can just knit your own sock then dip it in that can of rubber stuff you see on TV.

    Just my opinion, I think one of keys for the Beavs in 2017 will be improving the run defense to take another step (bowl eligibility). They forced some key fumbles, but you can’t always count on that. Statistically, it was bad. A few more stops this year and the Beavs could have been 6-6.

      Yes the run D does need to improve but keep in mind the numbers of injuries on the defensive side of the ball this season. Quite a few true frosh had to step in and play. Big picture thinking though, as the young pups got experience, more offseason conditioning and training and more talented recruits will provide better depth for next year.

      That aside my biggest concern for next season is O line. 3 seniors played their last game yesterday. Yes there are a few “big boys” that are committed (we shall see on signing day in February), there’s probably more the coaching staff would like to get.

      My early prediction for next season is this team wins 6-7 games (but is capable of winning 8). Only road non conference game is at Colorado State and Minnesota will be at Reser with a green QB.

      Slowly the culture of the program is turning from complacency. Next season there will only be a handful of Riley recruit leftovers. And if they’re still here it means they’ve probably bought in. I expect a bowl game next season. Continued patience. We’re starting to see the transformation. Albeit slowly.

      How bout them Buffs? Worst to first. With GA and this staff I don’t see any reason the same thing can’t or won’t happen here.

      True, and I think they will. With more time under Clune, some experience gained on the DL, and healthy LBs, the run D should improve markedly. The current, quality CBs and the incoming JC CBs should give them some flexibility up front as well.

      I’m not sure where the run D ranked or what the final stats looked like, but just based on observation they were aggressive tackling, missed far fewer tackles, and were in the backfield more than in the past. I noticed it Game 1 vs MN and it never letup except vs WA and CO (tough games, so it’s understandable). Even in the WA and CO games they gave effort while losing. Their tackling just wasn’t as good.

      Considering the influx of bodies and most key guys are returning, I think they’ll be fine. Also, GA is much more about D and hands-on there. I’d say it should be low on the list of concerns.

      Clune’s D seems so much better than Sitake’s, btw. Small sample, but it’s night and day. Some of that might be players buying in completely this year.

Would they have been better with McMaryion as QB from day 1? Maybe. But would he have lasted the entire season? Unknown.

        I’ll admit this coaching staff has a few warts but they grew up and adjusted late in the season too and played to the teams strength . I’ll take GA and his “buddies” 10 out of 10 times against Riley and his lazy misfits.

Maybe they didn’t earlier in the season when they could have but even if they had, your 7 wins prediction remains just that. Conjecture. We don’t have Saban or Urban Meyer. Or the same players. Never have, never will. What we DO have is a coaching staff that demands more of themselves and student athletes. We DIDN’T have that two years ago.

    Thought the defense played average but good in key points of the game. I saw some key stops on 3rd down, where Banker’s D would have folded. Also, the tackles for loss in first down were huge and set the tone for the rest of the defensive series. These are good signs going forward.

      Took Riley 20 years to figure out Reed is a waste of 250k, though he probably just wanted to make his bud rich off State funds. Teet suckin’ Riley — he should move to Omaha with the ultimate teet sucker.

        Unfortunately, Riley was allowed to get away with it at OSU because of the low expectations from the administration, some of geriatric donor and fan base and the media.. We all warned him that this bullshit wasn’t going to play at Nebraska. Riley was hired to win division and conference titles and be in the playoff discussion immediately.. Banker will be next year, unless it’s Riley himself.

          It’s very possible Riley is gone next year. I thought 3 years, so I’m sticking with that. He’ll have to break in a new QB and many other positions. They won’t be very good unless that QB is a unique talent. Let’s say they win 6 games. Likely given how weak that conference is. Will he be canned? Probably. Though, I bet some apologists will say he was breaking in so many new players, yada yada. It will be interesting to see which faction’s voice wins out. I like Riley at Nebraska because it gives me a 2nd game to watch on Saturday’s.

            The continued blow out losses in important games are what is really pissing off Nebraska fans. It was Pelini’s MO and it reared it’s ugly head again this season. With Nebraska’s facilities and tradition, they can get 9 wins almost any year in the Big 10 West, but Riley can’t lose by 30 to Iowa in a game that mattered at the start of the day. Really, they just should have given Solich a second chance or got him to rehab.

            “I like Riley at Nebraska because it gives me another game to watch on Saturdays”

            Same. I have family in Nebraska and visited for the first time a couple of years ago. Nebraska Football is huge there. Not much else going on. Now that Riley is there it makes games that much more interesting.

            I am greatful that he revived OSU football. But the game passed him by. He’s tired and should retire. I am watching all the same tendencies that we saw with His coaching at OSU. Like Jack says its PTSD trying to root for Nebraska.

            I would like for him do well there and it’s sad to watch the demise.

            On a more positive note the future of OSU football looks bright with Andersen.

            Oh, well I want him to fail at Nebraska, because he set expectations low at OSU just so he could meet them. He’s a man of excuses and lowering expectations. He really did OSU a disservice after 2009. That Civil War was the end. He stuck around 5 more years and ran the program into the ground while making excuses that the media ran with, and are now getting blown up by GA. Fuck him

            I don’t think he consciously ran the program into the ground. It was more that he got too comfortable and thought he could do the same thing he always had done and still be successful. He relied too much on his system and a couple talented players. Aside from the fly sweep there was no new innovation in five plus years. Personally I don’t wish for anyone to fail. Ducks being the exception.

        In all seriousness, Riley had to have understood that going into the job, right? 3 or 4 losses in Lincoln is average.

        I know it’s a little out there, but he and his cronies are not getting any younger, it had to be a financial play that was hard to pass up also.

          “In all seriousness, Riley had to have understood that going into the job, right? 3 or 4 losses in Lincoln is average.”

          Let’s ask Bo Pelini or Frank Solich about that. Guaranteed they’d look past their shortcomings for a national championship. 9-3 isn’t good enough for children of the corn. Delusional fan base indeed.

          Tom Osborne isn’t coming back. Riley made his own bed. Here and there. Fuck him. Enjoy it. He deserves it for a fitting end to his career

            I think there’s some irony in the fact that it was reported that BDC asked Riley to make some changes and he basically pouted and was then “bailed out” by the NU offer and now he’s being a good soldier and making staff changes.

    I admit that I could’nt help but check out Nebraska games and post game chatter when I could but not so much with BYU. I see BYU is 8-4 playing with (mostly)Mendenhall’s players (mostly grown men) against what looks on paper like a pretty robust schedule.
    So my question is: given the state of each program that each coach inherited, how would you compare/grade Sitake, Riley and Andersen’s seasons? Just curious what you fellows think.

      I haven’t watched one BYU game. Sitake was overrated everywhere I saw him, though. GA spoke highly of him, so I’m open to being wrong, but I’m going by what I saw.

      I’d rather have Sitake over Riley for sure, so BYU is in better shape.

          Interesting question. I would watch for sure. Any word on the mission kids from the first Andersen recruits? I had seen the same question earlier this week but did not see any answer. Hoping they do not all chase Sitake to Provo. I have Folau and Kotoa in mind specifically.

            Mission kids from Andersen’s first OSU class (2015) are still on their missions, so not much is known about them (Folau, Katoa, Sharpe)
            Folau was seen at BYU’s spring game this past year though, so that would indicate at least sime interest in BYU.

            Ula Tolutau was a Wisconsin 2014 commit, and sounds like he’s down to BYU/Utah, although a recent Deseret News story said he’s still considering OSU and Utah State visits. I wouldnt count on it.
