    Angry is picking some low scores the past couple weeks with Oregon State’s sling it offense and gaudy numbers from Mannion and Cooks. Richardson will test the OSU secondary and beat them deep atleast once but Cooks is ready to have a highlight day with zero turnovers and also should be at his best. Hopefully the weather isn’t much of a factor for the air attack as the tendancies to mostly put off the running game will continue. Right now Langsdorf especially just doesn’t have the faith in the run and would rather put his trust in Mannion. Colorado will hang around throughout and put a 4th quarter scare into the Beavs but unless OSU beats themselves the Buffs shouldn’t be able to quite match the Beavers’ offensive production.

    OSU 41, Colorado 31

    Oregon State seeks 4-1 vs Colorado:

      Angry is picking some low scores the past couple weeks

      Really? Last week I predicted 34 for OSU, which is what they scored.

      I can see how people think this will be high scoring, though. My feeling is OSU’s offense is good, but not as great as they’ve looked (due to bad defenses they’ve faced), and passing attacks can’t be relied on every week. Plus there’s more pressure to perform at home, and I don’t feel Riley ever has his teams ready to meet pressure or expectations. Maybe I am wrong. We’ll see.

      At least I commit it to writing. Guys, like BeavitorNot and other JPerry varations, will show up ex post facto all to ready to share their opinions and how they were right (in their head, i guess?)… ha ha.

      Just checked, Vegas has the over/under at 59. I am at 52. Not too different.

    Now that it’s here, I am looking forward to this game. For an OSU team that’s not playing good football in terms of run blocking, tackling, playing well for four quarters, etc. a home game against an improving Pac foe is just what they need if they’re to improve and get ready for the difficult portion of their schedule. More Mageo, Scott, and Christian would all help today and going forward.

    Hoping Romeo tees off today.

    And yes, hoping Brown gets some touches….

      Well said, but I would rather see Hunt than Scott. Burn the RS now or never.
      I don’t think Scott is very good, nor do I think he has any upside. He’s a backup nickle db imo.

    Thrown up in double coverage, nice fair catch Cooks.

    CU QB not playing too well, interesting to see if he adjusts after half.

    Good thing Nelson covers/plays ball well, when he “tackled” the QB on that one series he needed a tartan skirt. Not impressed with his one-on-one tackling at Utah either.

    Looking at the graphics, the Beaver logo looks good without an outline (as pointed out on this site previously) would probably look pretty good on a black helmet.

    Mannion was used to lots of time, the looping D man strips him.

    Will be interesting to see if OSU gets “out adjusted.” CU could probabl come out up tempo, run the ball, move it, and keep Mannion on the sidelines, especially since the point differential is manageable.

    Hey – Brown at RB, Ward at FB for the quick hitter up the middle, second effort gets a first down!

    If OSU can come in the third and score on the first drive, things start looking better.

    That last TD could be the game winner. CO can’t score 14, I don’t think. The QB is playing so poorly I just don’t see it. Richardson is unimpressive. He got a lot of yards off blown coverages. The comparisons to Cooks aren’t accurate.

    This CO QB throws funny…looks like a ballerina on ice or something. Doesn’t plant, kind of slides around and throws off his toes like a dandy. I can’t believe this is their best option, and that this guy is D1.

      Beavs really need to adopt an uptempo practice for both O and D units. 75% of PAC teams run up tempo offenses now, and OSU is poorly prepared for them. As Kelly says, “It’s easier to slow down the to hurry up.”
