Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast)

GA’s seat seems to be heating up really fast. Better get a win here.

35-7 good guys.

Luton will be impressive (like 225 yards, 2TD, 0 to 1 INT) and lure people into thinking he’s good. But the run game is how we win this one. Short game with a lot of runs and a few big passing plays. At least that should be the blueprint…you never know with McGiven & the Bozos.

    I expect Luton will throw for 265+ but it will still be a better focus on the run game with actually 50% of plays as runs. Not the 60% GA says he wants and where we probably are our best but an evenly split 34 runs and 34 passes today.

      I’d like a staff who can go and execute a gameplan. So if tgey want 60% runs they go do it and see what results. In most casee I agree it would give us our best chance in tge Pac-12. I’ll go with 36 runs to 35 passes today. A millimeter past 50% only. Just don’t think McGiven knows how to execute a plan if it calls for 60% run. Beavs win 38-17.

    Luton goes 185 yard 65% completion 3 touchdowns 0 Ints. Only because the run game slices them up and his throws will be mostly short field type. 41-21 beavers.

    I’m just mystified by how much our D seems to have regressed. DeCoud was a stud and Chappell was really good too, but our front 7 is the big problem.

    On paper we should be much better as we were decimated at LB last year. I really don’t get it. Definitely not a good indication of Clune’s abilities…

    What’s funny about Luton is he’s horrible on the deep ball. His best pass is that underneath drag route. Last week he was horrible on deep balls and again this week. Underthrows and/or totally behind the WRs and/or into double coverage. We’re told the deep ball is why we brought him in. He looks a lot like a game manager, ironically, and this vs two bad teams. Garrettson looks feisty out there. I’d give him a shot. I don’t feel like the team responds to Luton for whatever reason.

    Run D was awful but pass D looked pretty good.

    Better QB play would obviously help, but I think it is way down the priority list. We have two gigantic glaring issues, and if we don’t get them fixed QB play becomes irrelevant.

    Lack of offensive identity/cohesive playcalling

      QB play is an issue (and would have been regardless of who got the job in my opinion) but to me its not top of the list:

      1) Lack of defensive coaching talent
      2) Lack of defensive line talent
      3) Lack of offensive coaching talent
      4) Lack of head coaching talent
      5) Poor QB play

      That’s my list.

    I thought it was interesting that the announcers made a big deal about GA telling the team that Luton was the starting QB and that it was just a special package for Garrettson. Seems telling to me that all is not well in Beaverland if you have to emphasize that. Sounds like a divided team to me.

      Agree, and kinda fits with what I see, that the team just doesn’t seem to respond to Luton. The energy level went up with Garrettson in the game.

      Psychologically speaking, last year they rallied around Marcus, and GA yanked him away. There’s probably something to that in them not embracing the new toy. Plus he hasn’t shown any ability to throw the deep ball that they brought him in to throw outside that one pass to Hernandez with broken coverage. Maybe one longer pass to Bradford last week as well. That’s it. The rest is all to RBs and short drag routes. Game manager routes.

    What I’d like to know is why PSU is getting away with so many holds. One of these refs a PSU grad or something?

    A few of those runs were awful D where the Beavs were so slow to react to the guy bouncing outside, but I’d say at least 50 yards came off clear holds that I could see on TV, yet the ref couldn’t see 2ft away on the field. Lame.

      I think Andersen was overhyped. I’m not gonna lie and say I wasn’t excited to get a guy that big time schools wanted but I did prefer an offensive guy and still do.

      Baldwin seems to be calling a good game at UC-Berkley right now. Still think he’s the hire that I’d make if I had the power. And since I don’t think you can get him to leave Cal to be a OC in Corvallis I’m 100% fine with offering him the head job in 2018 if we don’t see dramatic improvement. 3 years is enough to evaluate a coach, so far I am not impressed.

    Well, it could certainly have gone a lot worse, and I thought they responded well to PSU coming at them aggressively with a lot of confidence, but we also got super lucky that PSU made some mistakes and turned it over.

    On defense, we look like a JV squad that is still learning both our individual positions, but also still developing awareness/football intelligence as a team. We look a lot younger/inexperienced than we actually are, and I think that’s exacerbating how poorly we are playing on the defensive front. We aren’t able to leverage any advantage in personnel because were a tick slow still thinking about what we are doing, we aren’t able to be aggressive at all as individuals or as a team on defense. Some of that is understandable (kinda), but a lot of that is really suspect and falls on Clune.

    On offense, what a mess. The philosophy (or lack thereof) behind our scheme/play-calling is really bad, and even the most causal of observers are recognizing it. Even if PSU is stacking the box as CSU was, we should still be plowing into them for 3-4 yards on almost every 1st/2nd down. Why in the world we are putting so much pressure on Luton to carry the offense when we are so stacked at running back is a goddamn nightmare and I’ll never understand. We should be coming right at them with Nall, Pierce, and Tyner, even if they are stacking the box. They shouldn’t be able to keep up with us physically, and if they can, that’s a huge problem.

    Luton I think is doing about as well as I expected, although he’s made some poor throws. The real problem to me is that they are asking him to do way too much with how they are calling the offense. Garretson obviously looks more poised and confident in what he is doing, and you can even see the team respond to that energy when he’s in there. Sigh.

    Hot seats for Clune/McGiven. Steadily warming seat for GA.

He keeps doing this until he divides the team over players or players get pissed and leave. Zero chemistry on this team. It’s a bunch of guys trying to get their own touches, praise, and yards for NFL scouts. No team play.

    Well, I nailed the Beavs scoring 35. Way off on giving up 7.

    My Luton Stats: 225, 2td/Int. Real line: 235 1TD/1INT

    Pretty good there.

    Moving on, we have an awful team. The biggest improvement is supposed to be week 1 to 2. Yikes.
    Still think we beat MN. That middle of the schedule is going to be a nightmare.

    Not sure a win is a win, but winning this game was certainly better than losing it. D is very young and should improve as the year goes on. My big issue with the D is they look undersized vs CSU and PSU. Especially the LBs. Is it me or did they look bigger last year? Really need Evans to get on the field.

    This entire staff will be on the hot seat the rest of the year. Beav fans want to see improvement, and it’s not there. A lot of bad decisions, too.

    Andersen needs to take more charge of the defense again

    Replace McGiven with Dave Baldwin. Worth a shot.

    Luton needs to learn how to tuck and run. Nearly cost us the game with that risky flick pass on the game-winning drive. That being said, 1:1 TD:INT ratio is an improvement over last game. Hope he keeps improving.

    All in all, I’m glad we won, but hope Andersen has enough sense to see we need MASSIVE improvement for us not to embarrass ourselves against Minnesota next Saturday.

    PSU d line looked much more athletic than ours. All our dudes are fatties who can’t move or get off blocks. This is going to be a travesty. Whetzel is the only guy capable of a pass rush and that’s from OLB. I would switch the scheme to virtually a 4-3 that would allow whetzel and bright to play off the edges with Hungalu- Hughes Murray- Willis at backer. Aydon- Kalani- Titus- Pritchard- napoleon- Saivea all rotate Between tackle (occasional end for Titus)

    Only way this d line looks half way decent otherwise.. the fact that this wasn’t seen in fall camp is alarming.

    I didn’t bother to read through all the comments, but since this is the internet where my opinion needs to validated with everyone else’s, I’ll share it. Beavs D line sucks a donkey’s ay hole. They were blown off the ball all game. When their RB hit the line, Beavs D line was two yards back. I don’t know why they bothered to pass. Let’s soak up yhis “victory”, it might be the only one. Oh yeah, Luton can only throw to Togiai. Garretson looked better since he can at least run. Luton runs like Mannion with a bum knee.

    I attended the 1st half of the game, had to leave due to it getting too warm & listened to the rest of the game on broadcast.

    Notes:

    If this game is sign of what season will be like — this is going to be a hard & difficult season. Best hope is that all phases of the team grows, and grows up quickly.

    Watching seems our defensive line/linebacker crew was porous, and absolutely lacked consistency on 3rd down, even on 3rd & long? I don’t have official stats to look at, but I think PSU 3rd down conversion percentage was pretty high this game.

    I also felt confused by the offense’s identity; the team can not rely on key defensive penalties to propel themselves down the field — was at least one if not two long drives where this happened. Worse, being unable to capitalize on points when the ball is placed favorably in the opponent’s field initially will wound us badly in some of these games later this season.

    Didn’t hear Jordan Villamin’s number called much if at all, not sure if lack of targets or just had terrible game? Someone else needs to step up immediately.

    Togiai will be helpful this season.

    Impressed by running effort I saw by Artavis Pierce & Trevorris (sp?) Johnson; felt their play was passionate? Ryan Nall ground some away, but offensive line not getting a lot of push or big holes. Shouldn’t run blocking be easier to do than pass protection?

    On defense, players to expect good contribution are Kee Whetzel, David Morris & Manase Hungulu.

    Lots of basic errors. Poor tackling? Taking bad angles?

    Passion.

    I feel like this team is missing their passion overall. A bit of what they had from last season. They need to find it.

    I don’t understand why we’re running misdirection before we establish anything. This two count mesh point is why we never have a hole. When we just hand the damn ball off and run north and south, we get four plus yards. Instead we have to do this funky dance in the backfield then race these tiny teams to the edge so we can dance there for another extra yard… or a positive yard.

    Just run the damn ball. How hard is this? Snap the ball. Give the ball to your RB. Watch your RB run through a hole near where the ball was snapped. Do it all again.

    But be sure to pass on third down after actually doing this and gaining four yards per run up the gut.

    That doesn’t piss me off.

      I agree. The long hand off/read option stuff is useless without a QB who can run the ball. It works with Garretson, its just letting the defense adjust with Luton. It would be diffrent if luton pulled the ball and ran or (God forbid) threw a quick mid level pass after getting the LBs to commit to a run.

    The D line wasn’t getting any consistent play until midway through the 4th. There was a point where the backers were starting to find space instead of back-filling vacated spaces or over-pursuing. So I finally see some hope on D. I think it must be a conditioning thing with them. It looked like Elu got a second wind, then other D-linemen and backers started making plays other than five+ yards downfield.

    It wasn’t going to help them overall in this game. But now they have some tape to look at that shows them they do know how to play correct D. They didn’t have any of that going into this game.

I say give Anderson the boot before we make fools of ourselves against tOSU next season. At least get the defense better that can cover a flipping spread team! I’m tired of spread teams getting more than 350 yards in a game. We need to hold a team to 175 yards rushing and passing in order for us to have a chance to beat an Oregon like spread team.

    I’m not as down on Luton as many on this forum. I don’t think he’s a savior but he can throw a really nice ball and appears to move really well in the pocket with his eye’s downfield. The pick he threw today was only off by a little. He had Pierce behind the defense and only needed to put a little more air under it. The back-shoulder throw to Hodgins on the touchdown was actually a very nice throw. He checks down a lot. He uses Togiai. Are there some ill advised throws in there? Sure (the one on the sideline on the last drive was questionable) but sometimes you have to try to make a play in the context of the play that was called. I’m more concerned about the receivers not being very good at getting open.

      He’s just not very accurate. The deep balls he tried to throw to Villamin were way behind him, just asking for an INT. He almost missed a wide open Togiai in the 4th, too. Yes the TD pass was well placed, but the mix of good and bad makes him mediocre.

      My only hope for him is that he’ll learn quickly what he can and can’t do at this level the more experience he gets. We certainly saw quick improvement from MM that once he started getting game action last year.

    My big problem with this team so far isn’t Luton, but a general disappointment in the personality of the team from a fan’s perspective. GA spent 2 years tearing down Riley’s holdovers, promising to bring toughness, discipline, aggresiveness blah blah blah. So far this year looks like a blend of Banker’s stuck defense and Mannion/Canfield type qb led team. The team was resilient to win today but I doubt that better things are in store for the rest of the season. How close is GA to completely losing this locker room? It looks like some guys are not focused at all, or working as a unit.

          If we’re talking grammar, Jack, then yours isn’t much better. You cannot start a sentence with the word “and” or “because”.

          Donald Trump? He’s a con. He reminds me of one of those late night commercial spokesmen trying to sell me shitty showerheads for $19.95.

          Also I am being serious about moving conferences. OSU was so successful in the 60’s because they could pull recruits from farming towns in the northwest who were pretty good. In case you need another case-in-point, look at Nebraska’s rise and fall. For the past few decades up to today, families are moving to urban settings in the south and are choosing to go to urban schools, mostly in the south. By moving to a southern conference we will be able to pull more recruits from the south (who are obviously much more talented than the leftovers we get) because OSU has decent facilities compared to the other schools.

          Making one New Year’s bowl would tremendously help our program in terms of public perception, which is a huge problem for our program. We need good publicity, and continuing to get beat down year after year destroy’s a program’s reputation.

    Maybe he is a real coach as well as recruiter. Might end up being a great hire as option 8 for the quacks.

    The d line was the crux of this game. They can’t get blown off the line like they were. Going to a 3-4 was a bad call. If you want to put 3 lineman down then at least two need to be able to command a double team (let alone split one). Unless this changes we don’t have another win on the schedule. Clune needs to realize the d line sucks and not rush only 3 on 3rd and long.

    Defense overall comes down to desire, vision, and talent. We should have the last two in enough quantity to crush Portland state but without desire it doesn’t count. Intelligence is obviously missing in our secondary though, they kept blowing the zone coverage.

    Second most critical part of the game was the o line. They just don’t have the talent. A bad talent group can pass block with decent coaching (see Indianapolis colts in the Peyton era). You can make low talent guys run block. Bad combo when we are built to run the football. This places a win cap at 4-5 games. This d line and dumb secondary put it at 0.5 games. They have already exceeded their win total.

      The O line isn’t bad, we don’t have negative run plays or sacks. We just need better play calling. The drag routes to Togiai and Villamin are gold and we need to use them more. We throw deep too much. We have to get the ball to Tyner more than 2 times a game. We should have some 2-back formations and plays.

        concur. There is absolutely NO flow with the play calling. And, there are actually few if any running plays for losses. The problem with the running game is a scheme (the read option) with a QB that has demonstrated he’s not a threat to run. Indeed, his own coaching staff has demonstrated this by bringing in Garretson in situations where the actual threat to run is more than usually important from a strategic standpoint, within the shadow of your own goal posts and in side the opponents 10 yard line

    Beav inside linebackers are out of place often. They don’t read and flow well. They get caught up with an O-lineman when they should have squatted and read the RB, then flowed to the ball. It’s like we have a half-ass guard-tackle gap blitz most plays and we get burned off tackle or right up the middle. Saw that Hungalu had 9 tackles but he should have had double that. The D’s problems arent all on the D-line, and they are correctable.

    I’m wondering if by playing CSU before Portland state wasn’t just a mistake because it was a gauranteed loss, but because it gave Portland state game film to see how bad the defense is. Is it possible they get better each game? Yes, but the team as a whole needs to carry over the last 3 minutes of the game and play like each play may lose them the game. You can’t play and think, if they score we still have time in this game. You will lose games with that mentality and not play hard all 4 quarters.

      scheduling CSU when we did was athletic administrative malpractice of the highest order. Rather than allowing CSU to open their stadium vs.Abilene Christian, with no attendant national publicity, and AFTER CSU plays Alabama, we move up in order to give them an ideal promotional platform: game vs. “power” 5 opponent. To make matters worse, with all the leverage on our side, we don’t ask for a second game in Corvallis, OR appearance money. Heck, even UW got 500k for playing at Rutgers. And for what: an extra week of practice before the UW game, an opponent we will be a 40+ point underdog against?

    I’m hard pressed to believe Tyner would even want a 6th year of eligibility with us. We give him no carries. Like wtf we gave DG 3 times as many carries yesterday as a former 5 star running back with experience in games we could only dream of playing in. Disgusting mismanagement of carries so far in my opinion. This coaching staff is a joke as of right now on offense. Defense not much better.

      I thought the interesting thing about Tyner is that they positioned him yesterday in the slot, where Seth would normally be. That is, he took the place of the kid who fumbled on his first attempt at FOCO. I like the accountability and adaption of the coaching staff behind that decision. With an experienced runner in that position, either Seth or Tyner, I think that will open up the interior running game.

          Kind of one of the things, where I started to take a dimmer view of GA or at least his control over his coordinators. A third-string back who rises to the challenge and rushes for 100 yards when needed is sure the hell going to get carries in his final game for the program. I brushed it off in the excitement of the CW win, but it bothered me. I think it did get a couple of mentions here previously.

      Agree, Tyner is at OSU for the free education. I think k his heart is as much out of football as it was before. He doesn’t look fit, he is slow, and he runs scared. If he didn’t play again I would be fine with it. Speaking of RB, I wouldn’t mind if Calvin Tyler was done for the season. He is an unimpressive runner and his kick return decisions are awful.

        after his return all the way to 10 (where he ran into the arms of a PSU defender) he was replaced by Pierce by back there. another good accountability step.

        By the way, don’t be surprised if we see Nall become a two-way player before the year is out; like that kid at Stanford a few years back. As Jim Wilson noted in the post game after C-state, when Nall tackled the interceptor, “Nall is the best athlete on the field for OSU, either running the ball or tacking.”

        That is not correct, the other pass was thrown by a RB on a trick play. It appears that McM did beat out the JC transfer, Jorge Reyna to be the back up for now. The local paper made it a point to criticize Chason Virgil’s accuracy (and note it was an issue last season) despite the blow out win and also mentioned an impressive pass from McM that led to a TD in addition to the other TD passes he threw.

        Look, love or hate McM, he isn’t a scrub. It was a solidly rated dual-threat QB going into college. I believe Riley heard all of the criticism about his stiff as a board QB’s and at least recruited McM to appease the critics. Whether or not Riley was ever gong to play McM is another issue.
