    Does anyone know if #19 Stevenson is still playing? We haven’t been hearing about him lately,

      I’ve noticed his absence as well. He committed that stupid foul against UofH and was suspended by the league for the first half of the Utah game.

      Riley didn’t take him to Utah at all, story was that he’d rather take a player who was available for the entire game. He then was suspended from a game (SDSU?) for violation of team rules.

      He is still listed on the roster and his stats show participation in only 2 games (EWU & UofH). Riley initially said, “it takes 4 guys to replace him”…because of versatility and special teams play. He must really be in the doghouse?

    The announcers were saying Crichton is expected to be a 1st round pick this year. I supremely doubt that unless he picks up a ton of sacks(only 1 so far this year) or sticks around one more year. He’s a stud but he doesn’t stand out on our weird, hot-and-cold D-Line.

      I saw that too. I refuse to believe the lack of running game is because of the lineman. This is one of the best lines we’ve had in years. Image what Quizz, Bernard, etc. could have done with these guys instead of the walk-ons they were stuck behind.

    Our special teams gunners have been awesome, just shutting down all returns. The easiest way for a bad team to steal a game is a few special teams plays, and they are crushing it right now.

    We’ve handed the ball to a RB 3 times in 3 drives so far. One score, two 3-and-outs. Just an unsustainable ratio, Cal is dropping 7 back every time.

        Some plays no, some plays yes. In football the holes don’t stay open very long on most plays and it’s the RBs job to get in there before it closes. I feel like Woods waits too long to hit the hole and as a result the hole has already been filled by a LB or safety. This should be one of the most talented lines we’ve had in years and yet you’d swear it’s filled with walk-ons (which Quizz actually did have and yet still amassed 1,000+ yards every year).

    I know Riley doesn’t want to pull Mannion/Cooks after poor plays and abuse by the Bears, BUT these two are the heart of this team. This is the last chance to get playing time for Vanderveen and has the advantage of letting Vaz get a couple series before putting Vanderveen in…….I know Riley wants to be “PC” on letting Vaz go in first.

      Seems that atleast 60% of the time it goes to the QB with the best numbers and you can’t have more than 3 losses and need a moment. Sean has a sizeable lead with the numbers. I don’t expect his production to fall much against the good teams we finish with. OSU will still throw a lot and the games will dictate that and Sean will be in for all 4 quartes most likely. If we cab beat Stanford at home we will pick up a lot of buzz and then USC and UW are also quite winnable. OSU also will give ASU a much better game than the Fuskies did.

    OSU stays unranked. Which I’m fine wih. Just funny that if OSU had managed 1 more score against EWU, they’d be in the top 10 now. Stanford has lost to a team OSU beat on the road (and Utah has 3 losses now) yet remains in the top 10. Sets up an intriguing game this week. Stanford appears to have lost one of their better receivers for the week due to knee injury in 4th quarter vs UCLA.

      Ask them if they THINK they have ever seen a duo like Mannion/Cooks before and sit back and laugh at the response. Also, ask them to bring some of those 4/5 star recruits to the game so they can see Corvallis and the beavs, and then make their decision! I bet they would be so scared and lose many of their recruits to the beavers. And maybe ask them too why they think we are better than Oregon and have a better chance to beat them this year. And why aren’t they ranked lower than us since we beat Utah? Did anyone miss that? I thought it was a misprint!

      Doubt it. USC is orange and I think they also partially did that because they feel better about beating USC. Missed opportunity considering Stanford kept us from the Rose Bowl last year in a tight game and we have plenty of chance to beat Stanford at home. Would be an ideal game for the orange and black look that we also were supposed to have as the all orange will be seen at USC. But per the genius of BDC it will almost certainly be the same all black look we saw for EWU even if it is a major season making game.

As Neuheisel just said on Jack Arute’s show, when you so often you start to lose focus on what matters, winning, and shift your gaze to crazy stuff like rankings and stats. That’s where Alioti’s mindset is. A good sign. This is the high water mark for Duck football. it’s all downhill from here.

    Derek Anderson comments on Mannion/Cooks:

    Anderson, who also plays for the Panthers now, is a little miffed at all the attention Mannion and Cooks aren’t getting, and says it’s especially ridiculous when you consider the numbers. Mannion leads the country in total passing yards (2,992) and touchdowns (29). Cooks has 1,176 receiving yards, which also leads the country.

    “If you go back and look at when Joey Harrington finished fourth in the Heisman voting, Sean has close to those stats — or better than them — through (seven) games,” Anderson said.

    He’s right. Harrington finished the 2001 season at Oregon passing for 2,415 yards and 23 touchdowns.

That was a mistake and Chriton had the big game.

    Couple of updates on recruits from the 2013 class who didn’t qualify(includes update on Mattison):

    Jalen Grimble, the 6-2, 295-pound transfer from Miami who is sitting out this season but practicing with the Beavers, fits into their plans at defensive tackle next year. “He’s really good,” Riley said. “He’s a good kid and works real hard on our scout team. If everything keeps going like it is, he’ll be right in the mix (for rotation minutes) next season.” Riley said Grimble will count as a member of the 2013 recruiting class. …

    Receiver Javon Williams, dismissed from Arizona Western’s team a week ago, would have to go to junior college for another year before being eligible to play at a four-year school. Williams has announced a commitment to OSU …

    — OSU coaches were told that Lawrence Mattison, the 6-1, 235-pound running back who has left Butler College in El Dorado, Kan., is transferring to Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas. Mattison, who failed to qualify academically to attend OSU out of high school in Spring Branch, Texas, said via Twitter he intends to enroll at OSU for winter term. That wouldn’t be possible unless he had gained academic eligibility at a junior college. ..

    OSU coaches are hopeful Kyle Peko — the 6-2, 295-pound defensive tackle who failed to qualify academically out of Cerritos (Calif.) College — will finish his classes at Cerritos this fall and gain eligibility so he can enroll at OSU winter term.
