The spread has dropped from -11 to -7.5, Bruins. People are starting to wise up.

If Banker could stop mobile QBs, I'd probably take the Beavs today. UCLA is on a high and patting themselves on the back; the have USC next weekend and likely are thinking about that game. Beavs seem to have some confidence and swagger.

That darn mobile QB, though.

If Banker can somehow figure out a way to stop him, I think the Beavs take this one. Maybe we'll see Trent Bray's influence on the LB corp again and they'll play fast and make the tackles. I am torn because I like the Beav's chances yet I have no faith in Banker stopping Hundley or the read option formations. I do have faith in Bray, but how much influence does he have? Tough call this early in the season. I'm changing my pick from UCLA to a pick 'em/FG game. Team with the ball last wins.

Edit: Beavs redzone offense has been bad for several years, and almost killed them in week 2. That will be another key.

    I agree. I really want to have confidence, but.. too many unknowns.

    UCLA has a young O-line, if our D-line handles them today then we win. Because they have a young quarterback and a ton of pressure will mount if we disassemble their run game.

    I believe whom ever gains the momentum and point scoring in the first half will dominate 2nd half play. If it is a defensive game, ie., close score, then I agree with your analogy Angry. Turnovers and special teams will play big in this game.

    It’s hard to get a feel because we have a good feel for what the Bruins are, but we don’t know what the Beavs are yet…game 1 could have been an aberration since Wisconsin isn’t very good this year. It’s going to make predicting games difficult all year since everyone has two games on the Beavs.

    I went back this week and reviewed most of the Beaver’s first game win over Wisconsin, focusing on the line of scrimmage, and using slow motion to figure out who was doing what on each play. Based on that review, and based on the little I’ve seen and read about UCLA, I like the Beaver’s chances today against the Bruins. Here’s why:

    1) I think OSU’s defense is for real. We are better at just about every position than we were last year, either because of new, young, talented players (safeties Murphy and Zimmerman) or players who are bigger, stronger, faster, and more experienced than they were last year (Poyer, Reynolds, Crichton, Wynn, Welch, et al). The defense is playing with more physicality and also with more discipline, making OSU’s gap cancellation schemes effective (unlike last year). And we are taking advantage of our experience and personnel to do a better job of mixing up the looks we present to the offense, and running stunts to confuse our opponent’s blocking schemes. Facing a talented but young and inexperienced UCLA O-line, and a first-year QB who locks on his receivers, OSU’s defense should be effective today. As Angry suggests, the main challenge will be keeping outside containment to avoid the UCLA QB from killing us on scrambles and broken plays. Fingers crossed on that…

    2) I think OSU’s O-line is much better than last year’s version (again, not saying much, but still…) Seumalo was critical of his own play against Wisconsin, but after reviewing the tape in slow motion, I think Seumalo played great, especially considering it was his first college game, and he was up against an experienced 335 lb nose tackle. Overall, the O-line did a good job protecting Mannion, and also opened up some large holes for the RBs (not all of which the RBs saw or used properly). Watching the game in slow motion, the Beaver O-line, on some plays, executed some complex blocking schemes to perfection (schemes where every player on the O-line was sliding or pulling to block someone other than the defender in front of him). Just a question now of staying healthy and getting more consistent, but I think this O-line could be good.

    3) Mannion seems to have made the necessary changes this season to reduce the number of interceptions he throws. Mannion only forced a few balls into tight coverage against Wisconsin. More often, if he saw tight coverage, Mannion either checked down or threw the ball away, as he should. Yes, Mannion missed some downfield opportunities against Wisconsin by being cautious, but I think that’ was a good tradeoff for Game 1. I expect Mannion will hit more of those opportunities today against UCLA in Game 2.

    If our special teams play better today (which shouldn’t be hard to do), I think the Beavs emerge from today’s game 2-0 and ranked in the Top 20. Go Beavers!

    The GT says UCLA’s rushing defense is last in the PAC 12. Means we could get a ground game going which means we could get a passing game going too. We will give up a lot of points to their rush and mobile QB but we could score more points than they do.

    To defend Riley there:

    We’re killing them on D, and we’re killing them on O. The only way they stand a chance in this game is through turnovers and penalties.

    So to make sure that doesn’t happen, you play super-conservative, run the clock out, and don’t give them any easy chances.

    Is it what the fans want? Well, would you rather have exciting football, or a better chance to win?

    Riley went from almost 80% odds to win the game all the way down to 55% because he gave up that late touchdown. If the don’t get 7 on that play odds are very good we force them to punt before they get to the 50. If Riley loses this he is going to frustrate the hell out of Beaver Nation. They better play to win in the 2nd half.

      How many positions does Riley play out there? Apparently he’s the only one responsible for the game.

      That TD was caused because one CB didn’t cover the middle WR, and then the safety had to jump to cover him, leaving a 1-on-1 matchup outside instead of 1-on-1 with safety help. How is that on Riley, exactly?

      Also interesting “Math” you have there. Where did those numbers come from?

    A pair of blown plays bail us out. Of course, stupid turnovers were bailing THEM out, so it all balances out.

    I like our 3-man blitz packages in obvious passing situations, very Patriots-like. And we have the studs on the DLine to pull it off.

    Anyone know why Dillon Win sits down so much? It can’t be a conditioning issue,and he is versatile enough to play like 7 positions. Why is he off-the-field on 3rd down every time?

      Wynn seems to play best, playing downhill… in obvious passing downs, where extra DBs would be beneficial, makes sense to pull him.

    Prepare yourselves, the conservative playcalling is coming.

    I really hope I am wrong though and we see the ball go to Cooks and Wheatons on the edges to open up the middle for Storm.

    Man was that an obvious personal foul.

    Can’t believe we blew yet another sack there, and they made a huge play out of it.

    Anyone else notice how infrequently passes are tipped by defensive linemen in college, versus how often it happens in the NFL? It’s a pretty crazy disparity.

    Notice the last few very good defensive plays by the Beavs have been followed by a workmanlike response, no hint of excessive celebration. Confidence grows!

    Great D. 4-man rush, got pressure, good coverage and a bad pass.

    Game looks just about over, as long as that kicker doesn’t get a PERFECT roll on the onside like Wisconsin did.

    Going from one of the worst rush defenses to probably top 5 is awesome!

    Our secondary was subpar today, heat maybe?

      How many of the big passes came because Hundley escaped a sack though? Some were initially well covered but receivers got open after he escaped the sack and found them. Pass defense was okay, but it does need to get better. Poyer did misread some plays and got caught and wideouts got behind him. I’m sure he’ll get it corrected. On UCLA’s drive that made it 27-20, he did make a play to break up a pass. Secondary stepped up when it matters. I’m betting it will look a lot better in coming weeks as far as full game performances.

      This defense looking like the best in the conference. Offense doesn’t have to feel they have to be perfect, this will make the offense better, no pressure to be incredible. That’s important.

    Good special teams. Defense in good spots for most part, and staying with ball carrier long enough for help to show up. Did better with individual tackles vs Wisconsin. We were a little soft on deep ball, need to clean that up for AZ. Offensively, scored some big plays, still work to do. Mannion had an interception, and improvements can be made on O. Good stuff to work on going forward with positive reinforcement. I’m hoping for a AZ win tonight so we are underdogs one more time. Dadadadaaaaa Underdog!

      Yes, lots of “teachable” moments in this very nice win. Important to keep the attitude that “we get no respect”.
      Even though the penalties (some) were pretty chicken-s+@$%, there is work to be done there.
      Also, Rod Perry will have lots of lessons on film to show his group.

      Overall the big thing I see is the great attitude all around; these guys believe in each other and it shows! 180 degrees from last two seasons.

    Coming in late with my comments/observations;
    Play calling at the end of the 1st half was bad, either kneel & burn clock to shorten the game or go for a score.
    That Mannion int was brutal! Spielman must’ve been correct in saying that Mannion decided where to throw before the snap.
    Owa who? He wouldn’t even be starting for us right now. Yeah I’m still butt-hurt about him so fuck’im.
    Our corners aren’t as dominating as I was expecting, got burned and got lucky a few times.
    Hundley will be a great qb. Has touch on the long ball especially for his age.
    Are the fans a mile away from the field in the rose bowl? Looks like the old husky stadium with the track around the field, even good seats are far away. Angry did you end up going to the game?
    Final thought: I’m worried about both Crichton & Wynn. Worried about them leaving early for the NFL that is.
