Rating: 3.0/5 (4 votes cast)

Smilin’ Mike and TPB’s from Nebraska vs Tenn Vols at 12:30 PST Friday.  oob here, stepping in not knowing if angry’s emergency will keep him from starting the discussion.

Riley’s a 7 pt dog in this one with a few injury excuses in his pocket. I’ll be watching clock management, use of time outs, overall team energy, and of course a hand jive demo. How can they possibly function w/o Bruce Read?

Oh yeah, will we see a two minute drill??
What are y’all looking for in this one?

    Gee, what’s a two minute drill? Is that when Mark’s defense gets bent over and drilled by opponents for two minutes as they march down the field for a score? Shucks, I’ve seen plenty of those!

      That’s were you run two plays in two minutes with two timeouts, while getting two delay of game penalties.

        No, you leave two timeouts on the board, and go in at half having wasted them…the first timeout is used in somewhere early in the first quarter when you don’t get a play in to the offense in time…

    thanks for putting up this thread, OOB. Myself, I’m heading to a local sports bar where Nebraska fans are reputed to hang out in large number, proudly wearing my OSU gear so I can be readily identifiable for counseling ask Husker nation puzzles over weird play calls, disinterested sideline demeanor, the husbanding of time outs for use next year, and the like. Also, be sure to tune in for the post game call in show on The Zone, on Omaha’s sports talk station. If it’s a loss that show today should be a classic.

      Thanks for posting that really is a lot of positive reviews. I like that at Pitt when the MBB coach was allegedly setting up soft schedules Barnes apparently reestablished some rivalry games. Given how Andersen and Casey value and approach rivalry games, this sounds like he Barnes may fit in well. It will be interesting to see how he leverages the collective attitudes and abilities of the coaching staff to improve the AD and facilities. With Casey, Andersen, Tinkle and Rueck, he ought to be able to generate interest and further improve facilities. I also look forward to improvements in the fan experience.

I honestly think GA likes it here but that is the ONE job that if it ever opened up he’d be gone in a heartbeat.

    One caller says he thinks Riley’s the right man to have at the top, but his staff needs to get it together. Says he’s glad Riley’s quick to pull the firing trigger.

    Huh?! One overdue firing in like 15 years is not “quick to pull the trigger”. He only did it because he feels actual pressure to win at Nebraska. If Read was still stinking it up here with Riley, we know damn well he’d still be on staff. Riley’s loyalty only exists so far as he can coast and take advantage of the school. That gum chewer really annoys me.

      that jumped out at me too. No one back there has done any homework on Riley’s staff development pattern. In the entire run of Riley’s collegiate career only one assistant (Paul Chryst) has gone on to be a head coach in his own right. Andersen has two in just two years. The great preponderance of the callers to that show are wistful about the old smash-mouth line play that used to define Nebraska football, and are correct in believing that controlling the line of scrimmage is the single biggest indicator of success, without seeming to have absorbed the fact that Riley is perhaps the most QB-centric coach in major college football and the type of play they want to return to is never going to come their guy.

        Seems to be part of their arrogance and lack of interest in anything but the false narrative. The answers to Husker football future are all there in the Beav past (if they are open enough to truly understand what the past is telling them). First clue, it doesn’t have anything to do with “doing more with less”.

    So, when Oregon hires the USF running backs coach, does USF try to bring Telly Lockette back to Florida? I wonder how much Lockette likes living in the northwest and making multiple Florida recruiting trips during the year. Could see USF as a tempting move, if given an upgrade in duties/salary.

          Refs will take care of it anyway. Apparently you just need to get inside the key to have a foul called, if youre UCLA.
          Just saw Hamilton for UCLA get away with a double dribble on a fast break too. First game ive watched all season and I’m already annoyed with the Pac12 reffing

            Beavs lost by 13. But overall stats looked improved. UCLA had two guys score over 20 points on us. Thompson Jr. Had 25 points. Maybe still some hope for this season??

      said it before, and will say it again now. Success by Riley at Nebraska (as defined by the normative standard in Lincoln) is a major strategic threat to the short term future of Oregon State football. Seems so obvious to me, especially with a team that has six wins combined the last two years.

    For anyone that saw it, was the Orange Bowl as good as S-I suggests? “One for the ages” hyperbole…Will Harbaugh stick around, or will the LA Rams tempt him?

    Does UW have a shot today, or is Alabama with a dual threat like Hurts just too much? I imagine the game will feel like a home game for Alabama and fairly hostile for UW. I expect UW’s Petersen coaches a good game, but can’t quite get it done. And I won’t be surprised if there’s some officiating in ‘Bama’s favor.

    There’s no one to like in the rose bowl, but better the PAC should win then Ped State. I look forward to Andersen and the Beavs beating USC in the near future.

      it was the best bowl game of the season so far and I’ve seen much of all of them. As of this writing UW is hanging in tough. First possession of the second half by Bama will be the tale of the game, I think.

      Rightfully so. West coast is weak. The fans and media, for the most part, couldn’t even handle my criticism out here. What I was writing was pretty light compared to East Coast journalism.
