going to be flying during the game…damn!
Like the over in this game@37 OSU 24-17
Gameday already talking about the game on the preshow. I believe there is a segment on Gameday about the Beavs as well.
For those who missed Riley on his bike at gameday
I’d feel better if he was wearing a helmet while riding his bike.
I feel real good about Cody and think he will do well in game today. Weather forecast for Provo is mid 60′s and partly cloudy. Perfect football weather. Is there an IN n Out Burger outlet in Provo? Is Beaverjuice allowed in Utah?
I’ll stick with my original prediction…….31 – 17 Beavers take another win.
I like the Beavers D today despite the fact BYU has the more experienced QB, the home field crowd and record (27-3 in last 30 as Angry pointed out), and the age advantage. Both kicking games are atrocious.
But this is not the Beaver defense BYU defeated last year; BYU’s offense isn’t as good as it was last year, and YU is facing a much better Beaver offensive line and improved RBs. BYU meanwhile has lost a number of players to injuries this year.
I’m predicting at least one INT by Nelson, that he’ll only be able to run when Robinson’s in the game, and that he won’t finish due to back injury.
I wouldn’t want the game to come down to a field goal. Hope OSU can deliver in the red zone, or, if need be, from the infrequent big play outside the redzone.
This is not the likely game where OSU “puts it all together,” but this is the first team in a while that believes it can win and is willing to put in the work to earn the win. Vaz may not look the next coming of Drew Brees, but he’ll be smiling after the game and the team will grow from this and move on.
good point on robinson. he shouldn’t be in the rotation today.
Entertaining read from the salt lake tribune regarding the “rare” opportunity BYU has today to play a #10 team, and some criticism that OSU doesn’t really look like a #10 team. The article also indicates the BYU fan base is getting frustrated with Mendenhall. I wasn’t aware of it, but the fans have been frustrated with his handling of QB decisions and the lackluster offense. Hmmmmm….
Mendenhall is 4-11 against ranked teams.
We’re only allowed to be cynical about OSU. Other teams are all amazing.
That’s pretty cynical.
Besides, doesn’t Bronco count as a Beav?
Entertaining read, yes. The writer, Jay Drew, says this is, “basically the same OSU team” as last year. If you check the related story in the sidebar you’ll read Kurt Kragthorpe opine that, “…that was a much different team”.
I’ll not hesitate to go with Kragthorpe on this one!
Did anyone else see the GameDay piece on Riley?
Overall a very nice representation of Corvallis and the overall small town college setting, but I felt it depicted Riley as an almost Forest Gump like simpleton, slowly riding his old-fashioned bike all over town greeting everyone he meets.
Looking for a close low scoring game today. Still can’t get excited about the Vaz. Don’t forget he should be the 3rd string QB. BYU 10 Beavs 7. JB
Vaz wasn’t even third string last year. Why should he be now?
2012 QB’s would be Mannion, Katz, Vaz. Katz’s departure promotes Vaz to #2. JB
That’s funny since Katz hadn’t departed in 2011 and he was the #3 QB behind Mannion and Vaz. JB
Jack is right.
maybe technically, but realistically if katz was still on the team this year he would be the number 2 over vaz. the reason he was dropped to third had to do with the circumstances of his demotion. let’s also not forget that lomax retired before fall camp, otherwise he’d be the backup today for vaz and at least there would another scholarship guy at quarterback. i suppose if richie harrington is as good as angry insists he should be fine though.
Glad it represented Corvallis well. I think Corvallis has improved nicely over the years, albeit slowly. That kind of representation can’t hurt recruiting.
Eugene, in contrast, seems to be rapidly degrading.
Low scoring, probably. But I still see a Beavers win. Whatever mojo Nelson had hasn’t been much on display this year – relatively low completion rate of 58%, 5:5 touchdown:int ratio, bad back, stagnant offense. Vaz has more assistance everywhere, and the OSU D is likely better than BYU’s.
Should be an interesting, if sometimes ugly, matchup.
Given that Vaz gets rid of the ball quickly, something the coaches like, I’m not so sure he wouldn’t have passed Katz on the depth chart this year for the better of the team. Katz just didn’t consistently show he had the mental and “feel” aspects of the game down.
Vaz passed him last year. Based on Katz’ last 8 games as the #1 QB (not Wisconsin 2011), I would not feel good about our chances if he were in there today.
the parent of any kid who’s concerned about turning their progeny over to someone else would love that feature.
Total pts scored will be less than the average age on the BYU team. Beavs win 17-12
I think since BYU would have started Hill means Nelson is not 100%. That may give us an edge with a healthy but scared quarterback vs an experienced but injured quarterback. Nelson may not be able to make it through the whole game.
As others have said, this will be a defensive struggle.
We will have to adjust to BYU constantly blitzing and trying to kill Vaz. Probably no TDs. Can’t miss field goals today.
Then, we dominate on coach’s names. Bronco is a stupid name. Bronco Mendenhall is even more stupid; does not go together. It should be Bronco Smith or Buddy Mendenehall. What use is a name like Bronco in Provo? That’s even more stupid. “Hi, I’m Bronco from Provo.”
Beavs 8 BYU 3
Ahh, the “coaches-name” factor, we’d all neglected that. I like it, but it doesn’t pan out consistently. “Chip Kelly” whom my Duck friends call “The Chipster,” is a terrible name. But he’s a great coach. Other examples here in the dead time?
Lou Holtz nickname was “Skip.”
Have to admit Bronco is more manly than Skip.
I now like to think of him as Charles E. Kelly. Not as imposing.
Langs-dork….. we win.
Gameday also mentioned theres an In-n-Out in Provo about 3 miles from the stadium. Might as well keep the road game tradition going.
I’ve held off placing a bet all week on this. I can’t muster up enough doom and gloom to bet against the Beavers in spite of my best efforts. I don’t think BYU is that great – they’ve played mediocre talent this year resulting in their all-world defense reputation. They’re the same cheap shotting bastards as before, but they’ve shown near zero ability to put points on the board.
We’re probably going to see Vaz throw an INT or two, but I think the defense will bail him out, he’ll settle down and do just enough for the 17-10 win, including at least one empty trip to the red zone (a Romaine FG miss).
I like the money line bet, but no matter how you slice it, 5.5 points is too much to give the Beavers. Easy money.
Finally someone who makes sense. Except I don’t expect the score to be that close unless our defense gets no takeaways.
Our team of frosh and sophs was slapped around by these cheap shot bastards. Remember Romaine getting shoved into the pile from behind (and getting called for a late hit and yelled at by Remmers the all pro)? Remember Castro and Feti getting hurt? Remember our team standing around like they were just bitch-slapped?
That’s not going to happen this year.
Yeah, there will no doubt be a defining moment or two early where the Beavers send a message that they aren’t going to be steam rolled like that again. Our guys were intimidated and embarrassed last year…and I doubt they’ve forgotten that.
Mannion or Vaz…it doesn’t matter. Beavers WILL make a statement today.
I was high in confidence this week, but I’m dropping to reality. I’m nervous as hell for Vaz and his inexperience. I still believe in the D tho!
Grow some grapes man, its near gametime!
I feel the same as a lot of people on here. I think the Beavs will win, but it will likely won’t be pretty. A win is a win though and I hope the Beavs go out there fired up to keep their top 10 ranking. I’m feeling a big day for the Crichton/Wynn duo.
The Beavers will run for 115+ rush yards and Vaz makes enough plays in the air. 20-13 Beavers and they keep it rolling.
What I’m most excited about: we’re one play away from Richie Harrington (best QB on the roster!) from starting.
So, last night I was looking at Nelson’s numbers—they really aren’t as bad as people make them out to be. BYU had one atrocious game vs Boise, but otherwise they have been okay on offense. Beavs defense is good, but they’ve given up a lot of yards. So, I don’t see this as black and white as some of you here. I can see why people like the Beavs today. I just don’t. Hope I am wrong on this one! If they can win this game, it would be the most impressive yet imo. My prediction was 17-13, so obviously I think the Beavs can win this thing, but ultimately wind up one play (or two fgs!) away from winning. I just don’t think we make that play, and you guys think we do. Fine line.
Really curious to see if Vaz can capitalize on red zone opportunities. Mannion played poorly in the RZ.
His best game was against Wazzu, 69% for 2 tds and Weber St (0-6) at 62%. When he played “real” teams ala Utah and Boise is pass percentage was 44% and 48%.
IMO that sample is too small (maybe he just had a couple of bad games?), and from what I saw of him last year (larger sample) he’s a good leader who can run, so completion percentage doesn’t tell the entire story. That guy is a gritty, competitive QB. I love guys who play with that kind of fire and grit so maybe I am biased…so there’s that. But I see a good college QB.
Only two teams on their schedule that weren’t bad were Boise State and Utah State and they managed 12 points in those games. They’ve been okay on offense in the other games cause the other teams are bad. Of course the offense isn’t gonna look bad when you play Washington State, Weber State, Utah and Hawaii.
Mannion really only has played poorly in the red zone in one game and he had a partially torn meniscus. I’ll cut him some slack for that.
Yeah I mean we will see. I admittedly have negative bias because this is a game the Beavs traditionally lose. Until they prove themselves more it’s hard to take them.
Anyone have a clip of the Gameday feature? Just woke up so I missed it.
Thanks. Great PR for the program.
Vince Vaughn was a guest on the gameday set when they were picking favorites and he and Corso picked the Beavs while Herbs went with BYU.
Great tool for recruiting….what parent wouldn’t want his son in a program like that ?
Seriously. Try riding your bike to work in South Central Los Angeles.
My Pac-12 picks this week (never do this, but it looks like fun)
Upset: Washington State
Let me fix that for ya.
I’l go with
WSU could win cause Maynard could be terrible but Cal should be able to run the ball.
Everyone mentions either our defense, Vaz or some other part of our team play. Is mentioning “play calling” a taboo on this forum. I believe this is a very important part of wining a game. The players execute (or supposed to) the plays sent in by Mike Riley. Play calling in first part of game should give Vaz a comfortable time in getting settled in. After that, a somewhat aggressive and varied play calling should follow including in the red zone. Riley has got to open and use the entire playbook today……..another words 7 points instead of the usual 3 point field goals. Keep scoring until the end of the game.
Just watched a good story about kickers on NBC …Serna was one of the story lines.
Come on Romaine! lets have a great day….
To quote @Stephen__Nelson, D.J. Welch’s ankle is practically “made of tape” … But it looks like he’s going to play.
I am not as high on the beavs this game as you all are, but I think we will pull through in an ugly win that will be somewhat close.
Watching Giovanni Bernard in the UNC game and he is impressive. Sure wish we could have gotten him a couple of years ago. He has some injury problems but he is a tough runner.
Just rolled into Levell Edwards stadium. Been treated extremely well. Had breakfast at a burgeoning cougar tailgate. Am completely sober, had all the choc milk I could stand.
Beavs in all white today. Rained this morning a bit but now just spitting.
Your Android field reporter, JtB.
Black vs white? it almost like these teams swapped uniforms today.
I dont think tv will catch the start of the game. previous game(Texas/Oklahoma) had injury stoppage. should he over by now but still in 3rd quarter. its a blowout too, but seems like the tv networks rarely leave a game early.
I really wish they would for the West Coast audience. Game is a complete blowout and has little value outside of the Big 12 South now. I want to see every second of the OSU-BYU game. The start of games is always fun to see which team grabs momentum. End of the Red River Rivalry is a dud. 49-8 Oklahoma now.
what a shitty game too..
anybody remember that game against fresno state that fsn cut away from to show pregame coverage of the washington game? dumbest thing ever.
Fuck me with a chainsaw. I’m in Iowa visiting family and ABC is showing WVU. Can I stream the game off comcast’s site or will they not have it because it’s an ABC game?
No web stream yet, but it may show up.
Well, abc did the right thing today. Go Beavs!
I wish our team had worn black or orange pants. All white looks wossy. Like Bozo the clowns.
Goddamit – the napkin eater is saying langsdork is calling the plays.
I hope that’s not true. What the F?
Come on refs.
And they come crawling out of the gates!!
Seriously this is already a such slow moving game. And thats with all 3 plays with positive yardage. early timeout isnt a good sign.
Isaac with another penalty. True-frosh, but still…too many penalties dude.
Cody looks awesome so far. 3 for 3.
That was fast! Go Vaz!
Great play to Connor, and a beautiful block by the RB, whoever it was.
TD! Looks like we have a quarterback.
Cody! Impressive throws so far and o line giving him all day
Holy shit!! Vaz looks perfect!! Touchdown Beavs! Go BEAVS GO US!
Uh oh. Do we have a QB controversy??
TAKE THAT VAZ DOUBTERS!!!
Okay, we need a cool nickname for Vaz. We have Cool for Katz and Peyton Mannion, but I’m struggling finding one for Cody. Help, anyone?
Great play calling…
atta boy Vaz!
Greta protection and scheme. They moved the pocket.
Anyone find a video stream?
Big run by the QB on first down. Team bit HARD on that PA. Gross.
Come on D!
Great D so far.
Wait, it isn’t Opposite Day?
Love that dbag just falling like he was interfered with. This team is so shady.
Sean Martin, what the fuck.
Dear god, can our fucking pass defense try STOPPING A PASS!!!!!!!!!
Nelson loves playing the Beavs
So much for a defensive game
Well that was shitty
Where’s out MF defense?
I’m about to start the “Fire Banker” bandwagon again. This is at least 3 games now where our defense has looked somewhere between mediocre, and absolute crap.
Maybe they’ll step up, but if we insist on playing Martin and Robinson for 40 plays, we won’t be stopping anyone anytime soon.
The D looked totally unprepared.
Nelson took a lot of hits in that first series. I think he might wear down.
So to defend Vaz, you just stick your hands up.
Maybe, if we have a short QB, we should get him OUT OF THE POCKET!!!
And it looks like Vaz is better on the run than Mannion
Two batted passes in a row and the guys were open.
Yea Langs, let’s not roll the QB out or anything.
We are losing all momentum. Riley has to make something happen on offense to turn this around.
What is it going to take to cover a guy in the flats?
3 step drop, 3 step drop, 3 step drop….
Lost containment AGAIN.
I fucking hate our defense right now.
are you fucking kidding me!
They totally suck.
Defense sucks! Did they practice at all?
Finally. 3 and out.
That wasn’t a 3-and-out lol.
Nice sack only rushing 3
Finally get a damn stop. Nice job just COLLAPSING the pocket by the line, with only 3 actually rushing.
Banker sure is loving that play.
At least he got up and can put weight on it, so it isn’t broken.
I bet he comes back soon.
What a SPECTACULAR pass and catch, just wow.
Omg..please be just a sprain…
Holy shit! Another TD!
These throws are out of control, holy crap. Cody throws the long ball!
Nice blitz pickup and a beautiful ball to the endzone
Offense came through. Cody has great arm and is accurate. Cooks will be OK.
Holy Shit Vaz to Wheaton is a thing.
Wow……love the throws… just gotta fix the blocks at the line…
Irritates me to no end when commentators mix up Ducks and Beavers. Kenny Wheaton in OSU HOF, no fuckin way!
153 yds passing in the first Q
Nelson is looking tired already
The RB went in motion to bunch with 2 other WRs, and we didn’t have a LB go out with him. Riley read the open man perfectly.
Bummer. Bad playcall.
More pressure has to be put on quarterback. Receivers wide open. We have to shut down their passing game. It’s killing us. Our defense needs rest.
There we go D
I think our D will be fine, they are going to start adjusting and getting stops. Bend, dont break.
Vaz is looking fantastic! He looks like someone trying to prove something against his detractors. Personally, I like the soft touch hes got on his passes. They dont look crazy flashy, but they are on target and on time. Im loving it.
Let’s get a long drive here and eat some clock
Defense starting to get it done. Would love to see us intercept a couple of those passes. Time for us to score again. GO BEAVS!
Cooks is back in.
Shit had lots of time too
Great call to eat the sack, as opposed to forcing the throw…MANNION!!!
So much for giving our defense some rest.
Beautiful punt. Hecker had a boot, but I’ll take this guy’s consistency and ability to pin them inside the 20 every time.
Can he kick FGs?
Yeah, Kostol has been another great surprise this year. Rough against Wisconsin, but awesome ever since.
Good punt, we didn’t give up anything on field position
Can we crowd the damn line? Perhaps a bump-and-run? Jesus…
Murphy horribly misjudged that; he had no shot at picking it.
smh. lets go D
Again no spy. Has Banker ever seen this kid play? Fuck’s sake…
Isn’t about time to have one of the guys spying on the QB?
Can’t stop a third down today if everyone’s lives depended on it. I am wondering how much longer Nelson can hold up with all of these runs and hits. He isnt sliding at all.
We need someone to spy him all game. He is basically shredding us on the ground.
I don’t think our defense left Corvallis for the game.
WHAT JUST HAPPENED!!!
The Mayans were right. Oh god…
yeah baby !! Nice pic!
Hahaha, Robinson with the gift.
whew…thanks D! Nice Pick.
what a gift for #13
That pass was about a mile behind the receiver…what was that?
We finally put pressure on their quarterback and good things happen. Defense has to keep up the pressure. Now drive for 7 points.
Can’t believe I just cheered for #13
Mannion would have gone down for a loss on that
We don’t believe in running the ball. Does Riley not realize our run blocking has been sick? All we do is throw throw throw…
Langs is calling the plays according to Parker.
Alight Vaz, take a few deep breaths come back out and move the chains
Beavs of days gone past where they start off strong and then fold their tents for the rest of the game?
Sure hope not.
They could have called roughing the passer on that hit on Vaz
BYU did good job on their stadium black out. I hope we can do as good. We have to give defense a rest. Who’s doing the play calling anyway?
3rd-and-10, and we throw a bubble screen. What the hell?
That should’ve been the first down call
Agnew with the SICK gunner play. Great work, great kick.
Good job on coverage team, negated by false start.
Luck ‘o the Beavs!
Oh my god LOL. Illegal shift, rekick the awesome kick?
OH MY GOD, these fucking Mormon refs. This is absurd. Fuck us some more, at least buy us dinner first, you pieces of garbage.
The BYU player kept holding his arm. That was a BRUTAL fuckup by those idiot refs.
Lost 45 yds on a 5 yd penalty
Not getting the stop when they need it.
At least Banker blitzed on that one.
Can we just put like 9 guys around the line of scrimmage? They’d never complete another pass; it’s all dinky junk like ASU did last year. But no, keep playing 10 yards back. Sick.
So much for our Nationally rated defense. They are slow, not aggressive at all. No swagger today.
Notice our linebackers NEVER do anything anymore? They had their names called a lot in the first few weeks, but not anymore. That was the #1 problem last year, and it’s now our #1 problem again.
Doctor, Welch, etc need to step up or get out of the way.
unga has been in the backfield a lot, doctor has some stops for loss, and robinson has pick in the red zone. not really sure what you’re talking about.
Reynolds is playing well this season.
Miss tackle in backfield. Oh boy.
I love the Moron crowd booing because their WR got bumped within 5 yards.
Put pressure on Nelson and good things happen for he beavs
True story. He keeps making these ridiculous pass plays, like the one Robinson picked. He got really lucky on that last one, that it bounced straight to his RB.
Of course, the Moron refs would have just called it incomplete despite obvious video evidence.
Wide open in the middle of the field. Crap-tacular.
No one around receiver at all.
God what an ugly drive from the punt on…..
OSU D seriously needs to regroup. If they can escape with only a FG…..but I doubt it.
BYU might as well pin OSU deep if they don’t get 6.
At least they made the tackle
so much for dominating time of possesion.
What an ugly game
So… We should try running the ball and not push our luck with the inexperienced QB. Just a thought.
BYU already has two 4th down conversions on this drive.
Couldn’t get to Nelson, and yet couldn’t cover every receiver. How does crap like that happen.
referees with an assist. that agnew helmet call was fucking bogus.
Its the old “mobile QB” story, again. Need Creighton and Wynn to step it up.
Poyer so close to batting that one down…damn.
poyer even got a hand on it. dammit
Our defense getting tired. We had better take time off the clock with a good drive on next possession.
Defensive end overran the play again
They seemed to be smarter about that earlier in the season.
F’ing defense is a reflection of Banker’s strengths and weaknesses.
That s.o.b. has to go.
Naturally, this is jmo.
Let’s see if we actually run the ball on this drive.
Poyer got a piece of it, just not enough. Inches from a good play
OSU not know for great adjustments at halftime but they had better do something for the second half. Our defense need oxygen bad……or something stronger to get them motivated.
The 2 penalties killed us even before the drive. Have you ever noticed that OSU gets penalties that no one else gets? When did you last see an illegal shift on a punt play followed on the next play by a 15 yard helmet penalty?
Let’s see if Riley remembers how to run the fucking ball. It’s ridiculous how we just pass pass pass.
If you don’t think your QB is getting the job done, RUN THE BALL, don’t just throw screens.
Good call ref!
WHAT A PIECE OF SHIT, just diving straight for the knees.
We were goddamned near having to use the 3rd string QB there.
Nice cheap shot at the knees…
That was a cheap shot
Cooks !! What a gamer!
Had a guy wide open underneath
I don’t hate that play call. Throwing deep on 2nd and long was okay there, but the throw itself was scary.
How fucking shitty. Same old plays. Do something new.
He went for it on second down. Third was just playing safe, don’t turn the ball over, try to get a guy in space and let him make a play.
Don’t be chicken shit Riley. GO FOR IT!!!!
I like that Cody hasn’t been forcing anything. BYU has had good coverage.
Of course, they can just blitz+cover every play because we refuse to run the ball and keep them honest.
Is something wrong with ALL of our RBs, or is Riley just determined to make a passing star out of our backup QB?
Maybe it’s because Vaz has 166 yds and two tds. And BYU has the top rushing d in the country. Just a thought.
Why punt here? Okay, it is a 51 harder but it is at altitude……
51 yard FG from Lettuce? LOL.
Why did we not go for it? BYU can’t move the ball down the field that fast.
That’s a good point. With absolutely no kicker, BYU would have to score a TD and there is no way that they would do that going that far…..
Riley is not an aggressive coach nor does he like to take chances. He’s a NICE guy though.
5 carries for Storm.
FIVE FUCKING CARRIES!!!
Try some goddamn balance in the playcalling.
I need a beer
I need 20
Some more stats…
18 throws to 5 runs.
11:33 to 18:27 TOP, getting killed.
Yeah, with BYU getting the ball to start the 2nd half I think you go for it there. Not a good 2Q for the Beavs.
Tree leads ND, 10-3
Seeing Sean Martin continually give up big plays is really starting to piss me off. Every time he’s covering Hoffman it’s a first down. The other DB’s have been fine, really, Martin has been crappy as usual. Jesus christ.
how about some help from the DL? no pass rush.
There has been a pass rush, just didn’t do a good job of containing and there’s no spy in the middle of the field. That’s a problem. Thought Banker had figured this out. Once again once step forward and two steps back with him.
yup, i wouldn’t mind seeing steven christian or audiss taking his snaps ASAP.
How about some fly sweeps or a reverse?! Give Storm the ball some more. Need more balance. Defensively, Sean Martin. That’s all I’m going to say.
Agree on the fly sweep. D giving up 3rd and 10 and 4th down conversions were killers.
More cheap shots from BYU, you got to throw those guys out?
TT leading West Virginia, 34-7 near the half
womens vb on pac12. USC vs Cal. So thats fun.
Beavers gotta be the most frustrating and stressful team to follow.
Between the beavs and the blazers, I may not make it to 35
I hope Stanford beats the crap out of those little green…………….
Wow, BYU is 8-13 on 3rd and 4th down and we’re 0-5. We can’t get them off the field.
Martin has been beat on a lot of them
BYU at 50% (5/10) on 3rd down conversions, 100% on 4th (3/3).
Third down conversions were OSU’s strength on D.
BYU 14 first downs – 7 rushing, 6 passing, 1 penalty.
Is Banker feeding his face at In-N-Out already? What’s going on here?
Meanwhile, OSU 0% on third down conversions.
I don’t think our defense can play 2 more quarters if they are on the field the same amount of time in 2nd half. Our offense has to march down and get 7 points and give defense rest. But with an unbalanced run/pass offense, it looks doubtful.
Gosh darn, golly gee wiz.
If the O doesn’t start giving the D a rest, they’re going to start giving up some big plays
Have to have a long sustained drive. Riley needs to stop being stubborn and run the ball. Storm is averaging 4 yards/carry. Give him the ball.
Lost in the details though is the 5 yd illegal shift penalty that put BYU on our 30 instead of their 25. Based on how long it took them to score the half would have been over before they got into FG range. Sometimes it’s the little things that kill you
Added to that is the ridiculous helmet penalty.
I think Riley Nelson will start forcing the issue this half and make some mistakes.
Also, has he thrown towards Poyer yet? what a liar!
To me it’s beginning to look like a Banker / Langsdorf abortion of years gone past.
WTF? Just got back from watching a crappy team lose in a rainstorm. Just like Corvallis in the Joe A years. Last years D come back for a reunion? Bring back Danny!
30 minutes to go. Game starts all over.
I don’t want OSU to play cheap, but that shot at Vaz ought to motivate some people.
Nelson must LOVE playing OSU.
Anyone else having a problem with the first row stream?
GF just pointed out that the Mormons hate gays, yet play a song by Queen to start the half. Fucking hypocrites.
Take away robinson’s pick and we’re probably behind right now. apparently they aren’t going to kick any field goals unless they absolutely have to, so if lettuce boyy can find a way to boot one through it could go a long ways.
ok….better. time to move the ball on offense
Perfect start to the half. Now the offense needs a sustained drive.
Poyer is too good LOL
Love the rollout call, but that block by Storm was pathetic. Is he hurt? Because he’s playing, but not really “Playing”.
Lame block by Woods.
Big play call here, run or pass?
same old up the middle call.
Unlike alot of you, I have a strange sense of calm about the game right now. I think we are going to be ok. Sloppy win prediction of 31-28
Solid call, but bad throw. Fuckballs.
I might run on 3rd and 2.
This looks like last year’s play calling. Are they using any more than 5 different plays in this game. Open up the play book.
56 yard punt, no return. Best player on our team right now.
We managed to run the ball once on that drive, that’s higher-than-average, at least.
By the way. BYI commercials suck balls
Was that a one man rush?
at least they are getting some hits on Nelson
I know they want the TE’s to help block, but wouldn’t it be productive to release one for another receiving option? Two at 6’7″….
I have never seen that kid defend a single fucking pass over the middle. What fucking garbage.
Sean Martin: BYU’s MVP
And another conversio for BYU on 3rd
Passing is killing us.
F**k. Could we see Handford get some reps?
There are no words to describe how bad Martin is. Every damn time.
Sooner or later one of these miscues from the BYU offense will go the Beavs way….
I dont care how much jordan poyer likes playing the slot or rushing the passer I am getting FED UP with sean martin being stuck guarding their best receiver every fucking 3rd and 4th down. It’s not fair to sean or anybody else on defense.
and. another. 3rd down. Come on D!
We might need those time outs in this shitty game.
They had 3 receivers on the weak side vs one defensive back. I’m okay with that timeout.
Pass 6 on two, ready, break!!
Even though we didn’t get the sack, I like the D. Kept him contained, and kept the receivers in front of us.
yep, good stop
THIS looks like the OSU of 2011…
Also maybe we could try RUNNING THE FUCKING FOOTBALL every now and then…
A fly sweep wouldn’t be terrible
field position in favor of BYU. If for no other reason the OSU “O” needs to move the frigging ball.
And it went for 12 yards? Perfect time to throw now!
Your wish granted
well there is our run for the half.
Nice burst by Woods…everyone once in a while that should happen when he gets past that first level.
and boom! running the ball seems effective!
Agnew lowering the boom!
Please keep running.
Anyone notice Riley does this in the 3Q every game? One drive where we run it like 7 times, then ignore it again in the 4th.
look at that, running success!
We really need a methodical sustained drive here. Make them play D for 7 minutes. Like the running plays – need to pull the safeties back up.
Why burn a TO? Do we not have audibles?
Wow 2nd TO blown
Go ahead and use all the TO’s you want. They are unlimited, right?
we seriously shouldn’t abandon the run until they prove they can stop it.
and the typical OSU timeout management….
Nice. Burn those TO’s.
Let’s just use all our time outs now. Screw the rest of the game. Seems like communication problems. Gee golly wiz, garsh darn.
the crappy time out management reminding me of last year way too much.
Vaz now 0 fer in his last 6 attempts.
make that 1 fer 7
Bronco just annihilated Riley on that call.
That ref was fucking staring at the yard sticks while he spotted the ball.
Bad spot by refs
Got it easy. Great push by the middle 3.
JUST RUN THE FUCKING BALL!!! Nice throw Vaz, terrible spot by the refs.
Angry must have a huge boner right now
A small one LOL.
WTF with the helmets at OSU?
The most obvious run ever. Losing that helmet was BRUTAL.
There you go Angry, Harrington!
What a throw
He and our punter are MVPs.
Can we please use our TEs more?
angry had an orgasm”…….”..Harrington.
Woods through the trees!
Id like to trademark that call before the standord game
Nicely blocked, TD, Woods!
Nice hole, nice run.
Hamlett, that’s what I was asking for!
Nice run Woods, nice blocking!
They sure didn’t expect that running play. Defense got some rest.
Huge block by the FB! Made that run!
OH MY GOD!!!
Man, when was our last score? About an hour ago, right? Jesus.
Look at that, 4 runs and a pass to the TE, and we scored. Not just cuts inside that get batted down, or inside screens that get batted down. Did Riley take the play calling back or what?
Damn that was nice. Who knew using our TE and running game would be that successful?
Yea but really I think everyone in here has been saying that.
What’s up with Wynn?
Great run blocking up front. Love nasty fullbacks.
hip hip hooray….nice job o-line and woods
Fullback is awesome…. love him.. hopefully that shuts fighting beaver up for a sec. I think he has this comments on auto type or something. Same 5 comments over and over.
Did angry make you the board monitor?
If not shut the fuck up about the other posters.
Nice language… you must be bored since the ducks are on a bye.
Up yours. You one of them bible thumping mother fuckers who think Riley is hot shit because he’s one of them bible thumping mother fuckers?
Hah… grow up loser.
I can tell you are a duck fan because you know they are on a bye. I did not. Get a life of some sort.
Fuck you, get a life asshole.
Great run defense on first down. Stretch them out, then make a play.
How about some Ryan Handford on this drive?
Let them off the hook again!!
3rd and 10 and we run a fucking cover 2, which they’ve been killing all game. That’s a horrible fucking call. Any kid who plays Madden can tell you that was miserable.
Wow…getting killed on third downs.
BYU should start every drive on 3rd down
Wynn couldn’t get off the field and got a penalty? I have a solution for that; you ready?
STOP TAKING WYNN OUT!
Defense is going retro…….2011
Defense is so weak. So fucking weak.
I thought their O sucked?
Make something happen DEFENSE….
Well, their RB, that the announcers praised so much earlier, has been held in-check. But the passing game has been brutalizing us.
Turn over please.
This is a much better offense with a healthy Nelson than we have seen from BYU all year.
Gotta put pressure on Nelson
Z good play
Defense brought the HEAT, and Poyer completely fucked up there. Hands all over him, wtf.
Another 3rd down conversion
Bail them out once again
3 penalties on that drive, and ends with an option where the RB was untouched.
This defense is so fucking schizophrenic.
When you overrun the play it’s easy for them
Gotta hand it to the OSU “D” coaching staff. This “D” came prepared to PLAY!!
Ah the life of a beaver fan. Every saturday just sit back and let this team kick you in the nuts for 3 hours
Our stadium should be renamed Pepcid AC stadium. Beavers fans eat that shit like candy.
3 penalties on the drive just made things easy for BYU. So frustrating. How they’re always out of position on third down is mind-boggling.
Give up more oxygen….more!
Jesus. Random TO’s, dumb penalties, terrible 3rd down defense, even worse 3rd down offense, yet we’re tied. We just need to tie up the loose ends and we win this game.
Storm blows another pass block. About time for Agnew to get some more PT?
That second-effort got us the first, WHEW.
Love Anderson. York can stay buried on the bench.
Nice job by Anderson pushing through. Hes been a nice surprise
Woods durability iffy
Time for Agnew to shine. Said all year, he’s our most talented back, and Storm hasn’t looked 100% for weeks now.
Ouch starting QB and RB now out?
Anyone else hear the classy byu fans? “Get the fuck up” “Get your ass up”
But don’t drink coffee
“76 wins and he’s already #1 all time at OSU. Normally it’s like a hundred wins.”
Hey dickhead announcer, if you don’t have anything nice to say, stfu.
Really don’t need the announcers bringing up 28 years of futility
76 wins at OSU is like 150 anywhere else.
Cooks, great route, and great find by Vaz.
Cook(s)in with grease….
Gota get the pts here. Put Anderson in for the goal line push
COMPLETELY agree with the announcers there; why do you go to your THIRD STRING RB on that play? If he’s good enough for red zone carries despite being smaller, why isn’t he 2nd string?
Is this another one of those where teams with last possession wins the game. I just ran out of martini’s. Oh my God! Tons of olives though.
don’t fucking settle for a FG!
I’m going to cry if that was Woods’ ACL.
It’s not good; they were all over his knee brace.
Offense wasn’t ready. Play clock almost expired
We’ve had a bunch of delay-of-game violations this year already. why does it take us so long to line up and run a play?
I think they can do it by running the ball. Fuck the passes.
I’ll fucking take it. Amazing.
Finally a bounce our way!
Better to lucky than good!
Luck o the Beavs!
WHERE’S YOUR MESSIAH NOW!!!!! MEEEAAA!
I would take that last comment back, but BYU helped us on that one.
Just how they drew it up.
Phew! Maybe luck is on our side today…
The defense really needs to get a stop.
Luck o’ the Beavs ?
LOCK O THE BEAVS!!!!!!!!!!!
Words can not describe…..
That kind of play normally happens against the Beavs…not for us.
This game is goinig to kill me today….breathe…..breathe.
Reminds me of that Arizona 3rd down conversion where Doctor tipped the ball and the offensive tackle caught it and ran for the 1st…
Vaz goes over 300 yds on the day
If Vaz was 6’5″, he’d be amazing.
BYU defense shouldnt have let him lift his arms to catch that after the tip. Bad play cost them 7
I have to call my doctor. I should get a defibulator on ebay.
I don’t think that BYU can score twice to win this thing the rest of the way…unless they get help from us somehow. Let’s hope not….
The early timeouts will hurt both teams
And a bonus. PAT good and lettuce doesn’t kick it OB
Pressure. Sack. Great play.
Come on, Banker; learn from your fucking successes.
That was a huge sequence for the team, and now the crowd is dead.
That’s the Nelson we’ve been reading about.
So eat clock? Or stay agressive?
Stay aggressive. Defense is tired and they are running out of oxygen.
3rd down pass was a Dali Wobbler. wow!
I just hope Riley keeps trying to score aggressively. 4th quarter is the danger zone where he gets offensively conservative and has defense try to hold the game. I sure hope this doesn’t happen.
Poyer gets beat and we still get 3 and out. Fortunes are changing.
Let’s take it down for another score, Beavs!!
Hell of a series d… now offense put it away please.
Nice stop, got a little lucky again. Offense can start to put the nail in the coffin with a nice drive that ends in a TD. No 3 and out and no turnover.
No gap to work with at all there. Not Agnew’s fault.
And…classic beaver series lol. If only we had more feet to shoot.
Or more dicks to step on…..
3rd and 16 and they throw 5 yards. WTF???????
It’s called a Read progression
i miss woods already….
Still lookin for the fly sweep
Defense time to step up….. we need a 3 and out.
Tony the Tiger tackles like our linebackers.
Could’ve cut BYU’s ball sack off but just had to have one of those classic Beaver drives finished off with a 5 yard gain on 3rd and long. Beats a turnover though.
Announcers said it doesn’t look an acl tear for woods. That’s huge.
First really big play we’ve given up this game.
That shovel pass up-the-middle, especially on options, has been killing us, and it did there again.
Wide fucking open again.
is the D just gassed? they’re getting beat everywhere
Defense playing reactive now, and getting shredded as a result.
are we in prevent defense?
WTF. Did the team think the game ended after our last TD?
Poyer nearly could have iced it there if he runs it back
were is the spy?
We rushed 4 on third and 2, and Nelson easily ran for the first.
Absolutely shitty defensive play call. Again.
I think our defense if finished.
It’s like you get paid to be wrong lol.
Nelson is a tough SOB..
Darn, Nelson was supposed to be gassed by this time.
Great pressure. Whew.
Hope their kicker is as shitty as advertised
Fuck, took us all day to rush 3 men. Shit it works.
Huge! Now we need some points Riley
This is it, either Riley get conservative or we see an aggressive drive. Which is it?
Chrichton stepped up there. Let’s see if the offense can kill some time at least.
Nelson, on the sideline looks to be at least 30 years old!
Loved seeing that progression by Cody. Deep…deep…deep…okay check down.
Generous spot, but it was still going to be a first.
Dude has moves.
Agnew, lookin’ sure handed and seeing the field well!
Fake sweep and Agnew with a big run
Great running play and good blocking. Keep it up.
Agnew! I was screaming at teh TV, “Cover up the ball”
Ogletree is like 45. Holy fuck lol.
Great play call to run Cooks on the edge
If we can score 7 here, we might win today.
running out of feet…
And…penalty. Sick work.
FUCK YOU KELLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sloppy, we are killing ourselves.
Cooks doing work. Kelly undoing it
Second and one, and FUCK YOU KELLY, 2nd and 16 now.
FUCK YOU KELLY!!!
Turning into a penaltyfest.
These announcers are retarded, and got the rule completely backward. You can’t run into someone and NOT look at the ball lol.
You got it. Beavs should know all about not looking for the ball. So glad to see coach Perry’s influence!
How about #20 on BYU trying to act innocent on the PI call.
This one announcer is just DOWNING that Moron…errr…Mormon Juice.
i can’t wait for andrews to replace collin kelley at RT.
Now run the ball. No chance of mistakes and interception.
That sure is pass int.
Fucking brilliant. Fucking brilliant!
A two score pad. Feeling better.
Vaz with the Moevao like creck back block, OK !
lol, I’ll take it
Great block Vaz
LOL man, how many fucking handoffs were on that RIDICULOUS play? 4?
Great block by Vaz, great great run by Wheaton.
Sick call Riley. We’ve run that play once per game now, and it picks up good yardage every time.
ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED!
Cody is doing a great job today. Hands down.
Its so refreshing seeing somebody else getting fucked by the refs for once
Payback for that “Illegal shift” bullshit earlier.
That call took balls
I just refilled my martini jug. Feel so much better. Thanks commercial.
I may have a heart attack but I’m drinking the BeaverJuice!!
Ok. That drive had all kinds of momentum kills and gains but ended with a very important TD. Defense needs to step up, a 3 and out here and in the words of the great Chad Johnson, you can kiss the baby.
Those were some of the worst fucking tackling angles I’ve ever seen. These linebackers have been absolutely horrible all game. Last few, really.
Games not over yet D. Lets go!
FUCK YOU NELSON. FUCK YOU.
Heads up play by Poyer, pick six !! GO BEAVS!~
The Honey Beaver!
These Moron…er…Mormon announcers are just flabbergast.
I HAD A FEELING one of those BYU miscues was going to win this for us!
Wow, spanking them now! This is incredible
Holy shit.. the football gods are with us now….holy shit
POYER!!! Man I hope we’re not using up all our luck in this game. Style points needed now. No more points for BYU and maybe tack on another score.
Lettuce is like “Finally, I can shank one of these!”
I had the same thought.
god dammit lettuce boy
Serves em right for wearing those racially insensitive uniforms.
Lettuce perfect on PAT’s……ooops, jinxed him we see an OB on the kickoff…….shit!
Obviously Riley’s god is more powerful than the Mormon’s god. At least that’s what the bible thumpers would tell you.
Stop pulling this bigoted bullshit out of your ass. We don’t need that on here.
Go fuck yourself.
Couldn’t go the whole game without lettuce entertaining us
Poyer almost grabs another. Keep throwing in his direction, scrub 40-year-old QB.
Michael Chrichton, just carrying the DLine.
TAKE IT RILEY. TAKE IT!!!
These joke announcers, trying to find phantom calls. Poyer went for a block and missed.
And they’d fucking DESERVE a cut block after diving at Vaz’s knees earlier.
Why both of the announcers so biased? They didn’t talk about the bad calls against us today, yet they continue to talk about the penalties that we commit.
One guy is an ex BYU player
Rub this fucker in. We need style points.
That’s what she said
Who’s in as QB?
I realize that Vaz needs snaps but the 3rd string QB needs some too.
Well, at least Riley put Harrington in for to take a knee.
Imo he needed a couple more snaps than that but wdik.
Went for it on 4th-and-2? Not classic-Riley.
And that was 3 Double-Doubles and 2 fries PER player.
Mulaney is a big boy. havent seen him much
mullaney’s gonna be a beast.
That was just fine.
5 and 0!
What’s next, Bellotti calling the Civil War?
I know some wanted more runs but the play calling really kept BYU on their heals.
Oh well, Mike Riley is too nice. Awesome win. Didn’t think this would end up as a semi-blowout. It’s great to know that we have 2 very capable QB’s. 5-0, bring on the BCS standings.
Great win Beavs! Great fucking win!! Enjoy the rest of Saturday boys!
Harrington so good he scores on a kneel down.
pac12 refs JOBBED Stanford! horrible officiating, Stanford scored twice!!!!
Stanford gets boned on a bad call
Poyer saying all the right things on the radio post game show. A classy, true captain.
I want to be Vaz for the next few days. Getting more ass than a toilet seat.
Vaz will be getting Vag
get your minds out of the ucks logo!
So McDonald’s is advertising on the Beav’s radio broadcast?
WHERE THE HELL IS IN & OUT?
Helmet sticker for the Vazmanian Devil?
I’m THIS CLOSE to liking it. If he was just a little faster, I’d love it. But it’s better than what I have, so I’ll allow it lol.
Great win for the Beavers. Never saw 42 points coming. Vaz was extremely impressive. Stood in there and took some shots but made great throws. Great performance. 5-0! Go Beavs!
Don’t feel lonely, no one I know thought Beavs would score over 30.
Sounds like Woods and Cooks are not dinged too bad.
Penalties were around 65 yds, a bit of an improvement especially in the Provo environment.
Lettuce, jeez, what does it take to keep a KO in bounds?
Cooks had a bit of an ankle issue in the first half but was fine. Probably will sit out a day of practice to rest but he’s fine.
Btw, FightingBeaver predicted they would score 31 and win by 14. Easily the closest to the actual outcome.
I’m impressed that 3 of our 5 wins have been on the road. And, no push-overs either.
UO has had 1 road game to a neutral site.
That was no road game. Closer to Eugene than Pullman. More duck fans than there were husky fans at the Thursday Stanford game. That was no road game. There first road game is onThursday, and surprise, its after a bye week
Amazing how their schedule always works for them.
Wow. Pretty cool story. Makes up for the crap I sat through in person today.
Great win Beavs! I need some rest. sorry for the language, it just the excitement pouring out. Have a super weekend fellow members.
Quick position grades:
QB: A- Vaz played like a good starter. He found open players, went through all his reads, and didn’t force anything.
RB: B While they didn’t get a lot of chances, the RBs picked up solid yards, including that last, huge run by Agnew. Storm had a rough blocking day, topped by an injury, which is very sad, but Agnew looks ready to be #1 again. Also, Anderson played extremely well, as usual.
WRs: A+ The best corps on our team played like it, making big plays, great catches, and getting open continually. Even our TEs got in on the action with a few huge receptions.
OLine: B The line opened a decent number of holes for the RBs, and pass blocked reasonably well. Vaz was sacked or hurried a few times, but it was pretty normal overall. Also, offensive line penalties were down, although the back-to-backs by Kelly were brutal.
DLine: A- Considering they were asked to apply pressure with only 3 rushers most of the game, they were spectacular. Chrichton went off, Castro was very good, everything just worked well.
LBs: D Except for Robinson making a freak INT on a horrible play, the LBs did nothing all game, and the middle-of-the-field was open all day. Also, the option, and the pitch-back inside shredded us many times, and that’s the LB’s job.
DBs: B+ Can’t get an A with Martin playing significant time, because he blows everything. Poyer came up big with a pick and some defenses, same with Reynolds. The safeties did a good job of keeping plays in front of them, and only one or two big plays happened all game.
K: C+ Made all his PATs, kicked one kickoff out-of-bounds. At least he didn’t kick any FGs.
P: A+ Spectacular game, drilling long punts and pinning BYU all day.
Overall, the offense and defense played well for about 2/3rds of the game each, which is up from about 1/2 of the game from the past few. Our LBs and Martin are going to get us murdered in the Civil War if they don’t step up, but I like our team basically every where else.
Spot on in giving the LB’s a D. The middle was sooooo open for Nelson.
Castro continues to surprise on the D line, so glad he is serious this time and in decent shape to play at altitude like today. Rotation of players on D really working well.
I’d like to see more improvement in the penalty situation, but a decent start today in that direction.
OSU should be at least 7 when the standings come out. West Virginia got pummeled and South Carolina-LSU play each other. Beavers were already gonna be 9 from what I saw before the upsets. Should be 7th tomorrow.
don’t forget, Ohio State can’t be included in the BCS
God Wills It!!!
Looks like Cliff’s prediction was a little off….
6-3? LMAO!! He has gotten so insufferable.
GREAT JOB CODY VAZ!!! GREAT JOB O LINE!! GREAT JOB EVERYONE!!
Man, this looks like a killer team…..and COMIN ON!
BYU offense was way better than I expected. Good enough to win if we hadnt been ….just better!
BYU offense or the Banker’s play calling for the D?
Shovel pass……………..50 yards average against us.
The Beavers are undefeated since Mike Remmers finish his career at OSU. The football gods were just punishing the team for him playing. Now that he’s gone OSU is alright in their book.
Only 2 away games the rest of the season, and 1 of those is neutral and will have a ton of fans traveling up to Seattle. Get your UW tickets now, I’m sure their fans will be selling them on craigslist after they lose to USC today.
The other is @Stanford which isn’t exactly a hostile environment as well.
Hey, when they start throwing their wine corks, it can get ugly.
I’ve said quite a few times in the last couple years that I really like Vaz and I’m happy to see him play well in his first start. I am hopeful he can continue the strong play moving forward.
I have never been happier to be wrong in my life, and I will gladly feast upon the crows.
To me, it’s the play of our TE’s that has intrigued me the most. Ever since that dropped catch in the endzone against Washington I have written them off as a part of a program we’d never have again- but Prince and Hamlett came up HUGE.
I can’t wait til Reuben Robinson graduates. With his departure we’ll see OSU’s D become as effective as OSU’s offense when Remmers left.
I’m still going to be paranoid that all this success is going to lead to a ridiculous, heartbreaking, mind-numbing, and soul-crushingly embarrassing upset – but after seeing Vaz do his thing I have to say that it’s safer to be confident about this group.
However, Banker still demonstrates that he doesn’t respond well to certain plays that gash us for huge yards, especially when it comes to deep balls, qb runs, and plays where LB’s need to be in the right spot and have the right speed when it’s needed.
Still- it was a hell of a win.
Last time I checked, Robinson has a red-zone INT and the rest of the LBs did jack shit. Be careful what you wish for.
And Cliffy can join Banker in the unemployment line. 6-3? Pathetic pick, dude.
I missed the pick. I guess I’ll just keep my mouth shut with all this crow I should be eating. I couldn’t see the first half of the game thanks to a sketchy fucking internet connection. Maybe everybody is improving on this team.
Martin was the real killer today, not Robinson….
And he’ll not only be back, but likely starting next year!
For the third time this season, the team is taking a much deserved trip to In-n-Out.
I have some fresh crow for you.
118 comments on this thread, do I get an achievement or something?
Did you beat me? Congratulations. How many times was the “F” word used?
Probably 117 lol.
And I just searched for my name.
Yeah they gave up a lot of yards, however, Byu had 84 plays, which is an 4.7 yd per play. So, all in all not bad by the defense. Hard to stay off the field when the defense is scoring. Now that said, the penalties are getting frustrating and if they run the ball more they control the clock more. Came in leading nation in time of posssesion and lost the TOP to byu. 5-0 and still some things to improve on.
Major props to Vaz for being ready and throwing some great balls. The defense made plays when they had too. Great win!
Vaz Pac-12 Offensive POTW!
Vaz was great. A tough quarterback. He took a lot of hits and made a fantastic block/tackle. He will do even better next week against Utah. I just hope we wear black. Is it a black out next week? I get confused over color. Orange and Black are OK but white sucks.
Great win Beavers, congratulations! In N Out for everyone.
good game beavs!
Beat writers saying Woods has a contusion on left knee. MRI in a couple of days.
In conclusion, he has a contusion.
The way that Woods was tackled was a total cheap shot. BYU was trying to hurt him.
