Game thread.
I’m changing my pick to 31-30, Cougs. Just have a bad feeling about the game that isn’t going away. If they win, it will be a pleasant surprise. I’m thinking loss this week, win next week vs Cal. Then we reassess the back end of the schedule.

    I’m actually having the opposite feeling this week and feel like its going the Beavs way. Which probably means it won’t. Go Beavs!

    Many of you predicted this . . . note the comment about CK’s standoffish ways – which he could get away with so easily in Nikeville.

    i totally get what you mean, but if they pulled W’s out of their asses against Utah and SDSU then at least in theory they should be able to score enough to beat the cougars. I’m hoping for around 45 or so.

    I think we will learn a lot about the Beavers in the next 3 weeks. Utah may be better than we thought, because they had fallen to lowly OSU. Utah is looking pretty good against Stanford. UW looks beatable. We will see.

          Just like most any team, good enough to whip an unfocused Beav squad.

    Also feel this game could swing either way in the 4th quarter. Should be very entertaining. I think Mannion, Cooks and Mullaney can make a key drive down the stretch and the Beaver D holds on in a wild finish as we try to hold on in the waning moments.

    Utah beat Stanford
    Hogan isn’t that great a QB, so this isn’t too surprising. Stanford has been ranked high all year; should have been in the 20s.

      Did it look like the Utah D put more pressure on Hogan than they were able to put on Mannion? Might indicate the Beavs O-line, even when patchwork, is pretty decent.

    I don’t feel good or bad about this game. It will feel like a let down if the Beavs lose. I think this is more of a trap game for WSU than OSU. Coming off a record setting performance and a big road win, plus OSU being perceived as a very winnable game.

    I think the TEs will have a big game, especially on 3rd down.

    Guys. W hy would anyone call more run plays when they simply cannot run for average nor break one for long yardage? Get real. To win tonight, they have to stick a dagger in the secondary thru back up receivers. This will open up Cooks and run game. Isn’t anyone familiar with WSU and where they are weak?

    We saw something we’ve never seen in a stadium before last night. When the Beavs went up by 14 early in the 4th quarter the coug fans started hitting the exits in droves. I mean big time! We’re all like wtf, seriously?
    After the game we started asking around to any coug fans that would talk to us, they said it’s as Leach pointed out when he first arrived, it’s a school culture thing that needs to change. They said they’ve seen it a million times and that the cougs NEVER come back from a 4th qtr deficit.
