    Not sure if GA realizes how big of a game this is for him. They played Minny tough on the road last year, lose by a blow out this year at home and I think the wheels start coming off.

    Don’t trust our defense to hold them under 30. Critical game for Beavs and Andersen.

    Calling it the Rodent Super Bowl as team eas saying CSU treated that game as their Super Bowl. If GA ever had as much on the line it is now so this better be his Super Bowl.

    Little bit of rain favors Oregon St. but will come down to OSU turning it over twice by interception.

    Unless Pierce gets 7+ carries I don’t think OSU wins. Think he can run for 49 yards on 7 carries.

    Also will give GA’s ‘Champion’ status to any player this week smart enough to down it in the endzone. Beavs xan’t afford giving away easy free yards. Hoping Pierce takes kickoffs with maybe Tyner thrown in once for a different look and to see how he returns kicks.

    57/43 run pass ratio is Beavs best bet. Below 53% we almost certainly lose.

    Should be a competitive game but McGiven gets a little too pass reliant and we end up throwing on 52% of plays which is 9% above optimum and it costs OSU in a fun to watch Rodent Super Bowl.

    Minny Rows the Boat out of CorVegas even with the 11 Strong unis.

    UM 31, OSU 28

    P.S. Isaah Crocker if in da house gives Beavs a +2 boost

      I’m with ya on Pierce being a key. Ditto your thought on Tyner for kick returns.
      57% is at the low end of the rush target IMHO.

      I’d feel better about the Beavs D if Titus were 100%, gonna be interesting to see how the ILB’s perform today too.

    What was the story on the sideline penalty called on slick willie today? Could it be part of willies schtick? If so it will get old if repeated every week or so.

    Anyone else think it would be a worthwhile “big boy” move for Andersen to blow his stack……..at an appropriate time, of course?

      Never thought I’d defend Swaggart but he had reason to be upset. Nebraska d lineman was trying shove Herbert’s head in the turf as he was getting up and then kind of kicked him in the helmet also. It happened in front of the official and should have been a flag. I think Swag got flagged for voicing his displeasure with the non flag on Nebraska.

        That’s not a defense. Coaches yell stuff at refs that make normal people cringe all the time. Most likely he voiced his displeasure at the player himself. That would be highly unprofessional. If not that, then he must have said something really really horrendous to the ref.

        It doesn’t matter that said player was slightly scummy and Herbert was over-acting to try for the flag. You don’t gift the opposition 15 yards.

          I’m guessing your participation in athletics ended at t-ball. Highly unprofessional? Coaches chew officials, refs and umpires asses in all sports. Sometimes they cross the line and get a penalty, technical or ejection for their “unprofessional” behavior.

            Wow. You don’t understand English as well?

            It is highly unprofessional for a coach to address a player that is not his with some verbiage untoward.

            If that’s not understandable, then I’ll stick with my apparent T-ball heritage and tell your wise and knowing ways to go fuck themselves on a bed of nails.

      Yep. Tre Johnson appears to be in a good head space this game and has tons left in the tank so I like him and Nall for hard runs and Pierce for a touch more finesse. All 3 with the team fully behind them is a big part of what this offense needs in 2nd half. Will allow a few openings for Togiai and the receivers on throws that are not pick risks too.

      Nall and Johnson with the Nall Ball & Freight Train and Pierce for good measure.

      I agree to a point.

      But we’ve been jobbed on many game-changing plays. Football is an ugly enough sport to begin with. This makes it just unbearable to even to pretend to suspend the reality that it’s just dumb.

      The short would be that it’s dumb, but it’s fun to watch the effort and all the action. When calls are biased this way, dumb becomes dummer.

    First possession of the 3rd quarter was our best chance to win the game. Took their best blow in the 1st half and were right in it. McGiven came out and called awful plays, Luton executed awful.

    Agree MN was more committed to the run. We barely tried to run it. I think Nall will finish with 7 carries and a 4.4 average. Meanwhile, Luton, the gun-slinging vertical threat averaged 5.2 yards per pass.

        Granted, it was some drunk work after we lost to Stanford, a good run D who we were running over for no good reason then stopped doing so… thus that loss… well… there was a fumble too.

        Sadly, there were some positive elements added to the O this week. It’s sad because they are basic lays that should have been installed on day one. It’s like we have 75% of an offense installed in week 3.

            I don’t disagree.

            I just think the dissonance shouldn’t look so cognitive.

            GA adressed the D this week. The D made changes. They might or might not have been sufficient. We’ll never know because the refs took the game away from them. But they were not the weakness. The O was again the weakness. And I’m not going to blame the fumble-fingers of some players. I’m going to blame the man in charge of making the O tick. All those skipped ticks are a result of someone not winding the cock properly.

      … a row boat made of yellow hankies.

      Those were majorly biased calls against the Beavs. And it started with the catch-no-catch that was called not so despite the fucking cameras recording all angles of that play.

      Honestly, I thought something was up when we got a line to gain replay in our favor despite the live call and the replay showing otherwise.

      We, as far back as I can remember, have never had a replay go our way despite replay. I can point to about seven times when we got screwed (before tonight). Getting a line to gain replay when nobody expected the Spanish Inquisition was just weird. I said at the time that we never get really bad decisions created for and given to us, let alone this crap.

      It seems the refs were trying to lay a baseline.

    Artavis Pierce 8 35 4.4 0 12
    Ryan Nall 7 31 4.4 0 7
    Trevorris Johnson 4 9 2.3 1 5
    Jake Luton 7 5 0.7 0 9
    TEAM 26 80 3.1 1 12

    How is that a rushing stat-line with this roster? Like, seriously how does that happen!?

    Also, did Tyner quit the team already after he saw how stinky this cheese was?

    So when considering the next coach, I suggest the following guidelines:

    * NO ONE WHO HAS EVER COACHED AT UTAH OR ANYWHERE FUCKING NEAR IT
    * NOT MIKE RILEY DEAR GOD NO

    You’re welcome, AD.

    Hey everyone! Let’s coordinate a home game where we get people to wear paper bags! Feel free to customize it however you want!

    This will be way more effective than any “fan day experience” sad bullshit our athletic department puts on.

    Just a strange regression from last season.

      The more I see, it appears that the whole McM situation fractured the team before the first snap of the season.
      I predicted that McM and Luton would have similar numbers by end of season. I just did’nt expect it to be for two different teams.

        If MM acting like a loser baby and running away is the catalyst, then the team as a whole can transfer somewhere else. That’s how unacceptable that is as a “reason.”

      I called it before the season. We’re going to lose to them and their true frosh walk-on QB in his first start.

      The only difference this year is that I actually know who he his before halftime of that game.

      It’s college football. The same team you just watched lose to Minnie could beat Bama next week. That’s how poor the product is as a whole.

      I don’t understand why this isn’t obvious. And I’m correcting for team-centric bias. People think that team is good because that team racks up numbers. The reality is the team they faced sucked while they racked up numbers. They could have been executing perfectly and looking for blocks on people who weren’t there, and that would have been noted. That’s not what happens 97% of the time in college football. Most of the time it’s just picking on the 17 year-old sub.

      It’s just not pretty.

      And Celestine should have been ejected for spearing Pierce. Talk all you want about any other play. That was targeting.

        Before you talk about talent, forget it. I’ll buy coaching. There isn;t that much difference in talent. So don’t bother with that argument.

            Yup.

            It was textbook targeting. Kid should have left the field in shame. Instead he gets celebrated. And Moore gets kicked for a lesser offense. I agree that Moore goes by the letter of the law. I just want Minnie fan to know that Celestine should have been kicked for a greater and more blatant offense.

            That was a really bad miss for the refs. The game was over after that. I gift them the call of a “miss” only because they had many in this game. They made a poor product unwatchable.

    If Anderson doesn’t fire coaches in the offseason or before hand, then he’ll get fired at some point. We can’t keep recruiting pocket passers and expect them to run a spread offense. We either need to adapt to a pro-style offense with the QB we have, or we need to bench Luton for not pulling the ball more on read options to keep the defense honest. When he kept the ball those times, he gained positive yards and it opened our run and pass game up.

    Who do we replace Anderson if we choose to fire him? We really should look at Jonathan smith or even levit(sp?) at Oregon for the head job. We need someone who is a natural leader as a head coach. We got a coach who was anti-riley. Fired up, passion, vision(sporadic), young, enthusiasm, charisma, doesn’t beat around the bush(until now).

    Something has to change. Im just frustrated as hell hence this rant. ‘Im a man I’m 40!!!’ We need a rant that gets our players attention and gets us on the map cause losing and visors and sun tans aren’t going to do it.

      It is better than big boy pants.

      Ftr, the announcers in last week’s game for Nikegon mentioned big boy pants twice. And I’ve heard it a couple times on other broadcasts unrelated to GA. I looked for the etymology, since it’s just dumb to start with. And it appears to begin with some obscure comedy.

      ?

      I have not seen this obscure comedy. Is it funny? Is big boy pants funny or serious?

      Clune?

      McGiven is the target. Wtf are you talking about?

      What’s sad is that the glaring issues might not be addressed if we weren’t jobbed by the refs on almost double-digit plays. These issues would still be here if we won.

      I wonder if the refs don’t like Mormons. I mean, I’ve never found a Mormon who wasn’t either proselytizing or discriminating. So I guess I understand why there might be bias. But that doesn’t explain the blatant bullshit calls Minnie got i this game.

      *never only applies to Mormons who are really Mormons. Jack Mormons are conflicted and most of the time on the right side of any social conscience.
