20.Oct.2012 Utah @ Oregon State (Game Thread)

Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast)

Been reading some SLC rags that think Utah has a legit shot at the upset. Apparently they are psyched for this game and hungry for a win. Then I saw this article on Riley worried about a let down.

ND losing, South Carolina losing, Beavs could jump to at least 6 with a win if these scores holdup. A lot on the line and a hungry Utah team has me nervous. Still taking the Beavs (because of the huge WR advantage over their secondary) but anxious.

Go Beavs

    That CBF Matrix guy on radio other day was amazed beavs were favored by 10, talking up Utah’s talent level. I can’t not be nervous for beaver football, so what’s new!

      From what I’ve read (and little I’ve seen) Utah has a bad secondary but decent front four. I’m sure McKalk knows more.

      After ND, I think Utah is my least favorite team. Not even sure why (though the refs jobbing the Beavs in ’08 is a good start).

        I almost five years removed from SLC now, so I’m not following them as closely anymore. Brian Blechen was supposed to develop into an “all world” type player, but he got in some trouble and missed some games this year, so I don’t think the back line is as strong as they usually are. Reggie Dunn hasn’t really become the threat I thought he was going to be. I Jordan Wynn’s injury was kind of the “straw” for this team, but Whittingham has pride, so it is no gimme.

    Joe Avezzano is once again, as always, worried about a trap game.

    If there is any team that needs vast distance from overconfidence it’s the Beavs.

    “Trust but verify”….something like that.

    Im feeling quite the opposite and honestly this kind of talk disturbs me. I worry that it becomes a self-fullfilling prophecy when you start talking about trap games. I know its an Uck thing, but we could use a little “win the day” mentality right now.

    We match up well against Utah. Unless they do something completely out of charactor, we should have little trouble shutting down their run game making them pretty one dimensional. I suspect just like we’ve shown all year, we will get beat several times in the secondary but make up for it with key turnovers.

    Im usually pretty pessimistic, but I really have a feeling this is the blowout game we thought we would have against WSU. 41-19 Orange

      I agree…just nervous hearing how hungry Utah is for a win, and then Riley worried about a let down. Took some wind out of my sail. Watching ND come out flat at home reminded me how much psychology plays into these games, too.

      My biggest concern is Vaz having time in the pocket. Think he might have a little less this week/we might see more sacks. If he can get the ball to the WRs they have a huge advantage. That’s how I see it.

        All underdogs are hungry until you put 21 on them. Look at how fast ASU gave up vs. the Ducks. That first drive I thought “oh man, this’ll be a game!” 21 points later, I was sleeping.

      “we should have little trouble, we thought we would have against WSU” – I fear that what WE should have little trouble with and what WE thought or think is completely disconnected from the players and the game as it will actually happen.

    I felt I was being generous to Utah picking the Beavs 31-20. I really feel this should be more of a 31-17 game for OSU. My scenario allows for a late TD by Utah that takes them from 13 to 20 points for the day. OSU should really be able to pressure the freshman QB Wilson. As long as the crowd brings the energy I think Oregon State plays up to the national ESPN2 audience and puts on a showing deserving of a #8 team. We should be atleast #7 in the AP and BCS come tomorrow. Too much on the line to equal the all time best start in OSU history and help Reser Phase 3 efforts to not put forth a good game on both sides of the ball. 🙂

      I’m not keen about the late start. Don’t quite understand it for homecoming weekend, especially. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a homecoming game at any school that wasn’t played in the afternoon so the alums could party/dance whatever after the game.

        “Charles Woodson of the University of Michigan is the only primarily defensive player to win the award, beating out Heisman favorite Peyton Manning quarterback from the University of Tennessee in 1997. He was a standout cornerback, but also occasionally played as a wide receiver and punt returner.”

          Yeah, I couldn’t think of any offhand. That’s a real shame. Offense is overrated…much easier to play offense in college (or any level, really). Elite defenders should get mad props.

          Collin Klein should be in the mix. Not sure if they mentioned him, but he’d be in my top 3.

      Tyner recommitted to the Ducks. The Dicks have a “you can’t take any visits if you’re committed” rule. That’s why he decommitted in the first place. That being said, it could be an “unofficial” if he is.

    I’d be very pleased if this was a blow out and even more so if that meant Harrington got some meaningful minutes.

    Imo OSU is on thin ice right now as far as the QB situation goes and Riley needs to get his 3rd string guy ready just in case.

    I find it hard to believe that Vaz had to wait until he was a junior before taking a snap. That would only make sense if he was 4th or 5th string QB.

    I think Riley was more than a bit lucky that Vaz was able to perform as well as he did WITH NO COLLEGE GAME EXPERIENCE.

    Major kudos to Vaz, but not Riley.

      Usually the second string QB sees playing time only when we are blowing out another team. We haven’t done that since the 1800’s I believe so maybe that is why you haven’t seen Vaz yet.

    too many guys on this team were here last year, no let down after last year’s performance. Beavs stumble a bit in the red zone but win 27-10. (Lettuce 2-2 FG, 3-3 PAT, I know, that is the improbable part)

        I think the focus on offense is such that it will take much more than what you list for Poyer to get the Heisman.
        Key, game winning plays including at least one pick six and continued success for the team plus your list. At the minimum.

    I don’t believe there was any team wanting a win more against the Beavs than BYU. If we can overcome that pressure (which we did in good fashion), then I do not see any worries with Utah. I worry more about offensive play calling (as usual) than our players executing.

    I do believe in the theory that the team that wants to win most has an advantage. With this in mind our Beaver teams wants to win also…….more so than the Utes.

      Is there anything you agree with Riley on? If you were in charge he would have been fired about 300 times by now. Whatever he’s doing this season is obviously working so until we lose, i’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.

      If you read all of his comment he said he WAS worried too until he saw how level headed and all about business they were in practice. So I think the reporter pulled it out of context and Riley is not worried.

    I like the night games over the 12-3 pm games for a few reasons:

    1. Having a game late weeds out a lot of the old people that refuse to stand and would prefer to nap in their seats during the game and replaces them with people who enjoy the night tailgating atmosphere and get extremely excited and rowdy, thus making Reser a much tougher place to play.
    2. Late games also force the players to wait all day before they can play which I believe gets them all the more wound up and itching to get out there and hit someone.

    While I would prefer 5 or 6 p.m. to 730, which I agree is a bit late, i’ll personally take it over noon any day.

        Basically it is because Riley plays the odds and only cares about winning by any amount. So he would rather not make a mistake in some games at home. On the road he knows he needs a few more defining plays to grab the lead and hold it. Open it up in the 2nd half and getb the ball to Wheaton and Cooks. Quick side-outb throws thrown in with some 15 yard crossing routes, etc. You have to strecth the field more than we are right now. Last game we threw more in the 1st half. I am glad Storm has two TDs but time to get everyone involved and let our receivers make some plays.

      Chrichton is our best player, by far. Would be fun to put together a list though, every player from 1 to 55.

      It would probably start something like this:

      2. Poyer
      3. Wheaton
      4. Anderson
      5. Wynn

    Huge drive. Took good time, and other than one STUPID penalty, we moved the ball on almost every play. Been waiting for the offense to look like that all night, but better late than never.

    Also, as a side-note, Utah’s head coach has the funniest facial expressions I’ve seen from a coach; can we just get a camera following him all night?

    15 carries 39 yards for Storm. I don’t think he’s been nearly as explosive since he “Sprained” his knee, and while their DLine has been good, 2.6 YPC isn’t good enough.

    Then again, who else do we have? Agnew is good in spurts, Ward is good in spurts, Woods is at least consistently solid, generally. Although tonight, he’s been blah.

    Grades for the game:

    QB C+: Mad eplays when he had to, and got better in the second half, but the offense was ugly for quite a while and a big part of that falls on Vaz.
    RB B-: Utah’s front 4 was very stout, so Storm’s numbers look pretty bad, but on the goal line, he got the job done every time.
    WRs B+: Really no drops, other than a few horrible throws, but they didn’t have a lot of opportunities, either. Wheaton had a great game but couldn’t quite get to the endzone.
    OLine B-: There weren’t many gaps to run through after the first quarter, and the pocket collapsed a few too many times. But they held their ground in-the-end against a good DLine.
    DLine B: A few big penalties extended a drive, but the line was our best unit as usual. They stuffed the run pretty well, and created/recovered a pair of fumbles.
    Linebackers C-: Doctor and Alexander made about 2 plays each, and while they were pretty good plays, that was literally it. Feti also gave up our only touchdown via blow pass coverage.
    Secondary B+: Reynolds and Poyer held the fort down, as always. Martin blew a few coverages, then came up with the dagger INT. Watkins and Murphy made plays as usual, and Zimmerman blew at least two coverages. Overall pretty good, but Zimmerman and Martin as our “Future” scares the crap out of me.
    Special Teams A-: We gave up one nice kick return(About 40 yards), but didn’t need Lettuce to kick any FGs, and Kostol was a monster as usual, pinning Utah on almost every punt.

    Overall, it was an ugly game, but come on; you have to be excited that we can play an absolutely miserable game, and still win by 14. We would have definitely lost these types of games in the past, but we won solidly instead. That being said, welcome back Peyton Mannion; we missed you(this week).

    Chrichton is MVP -1 stupid penalty. Defense won this game (once again this season). Offense look pretty poor tonight. Utah controlled the momentum and the ball. Once again, defense won the game.

    I think Vaz had hangover from the last game. I think Cooks and Wheaten should have been more involved first half. Cooks is scary good and they needed to get the ball to him more.

    Happy they won, wish it was prettier!

    ” I must ask the question of our special teams coach about two kick offs after we scored both times. On both occasions Utah was hit with 15 yard personal foul penalty. We then kicked off from our 45, not the 30 yard line. Instead of kicking shallow to the goal line and forcing the returner to run back probably to the 15-20 yard line at best. Our kicker booms it out of the end zone giving them possession on their 25 yard line. The same thing happen on one kick off for Utah and their kicker hit a shallow to our goal line and we were downed on the return on maybe our 15. Did our kicker fail to follow instructions, or was he coached to do what he did? Seems like a poor coaching decision for me.”
