As we know, Angie Machado bailed on her subscribers (probably realizing Beaver fans are loyal dopes who will follow her around).

Since that move, I have visited BeaverBlitz once. I go to BeaverSedge (lol!) whenever I want to look at the recruit list, schedule, etc. The latter has a more user friendly layout and I like the familiarity of it. Angie hasn’t had info that nobody else can get in almost 2 years so between our Twitter and BeaverSedge (lol!) the info is all there and there’s no reason for Angie or Scout. The paywall is so dated that it makes you wonder what Scout was thinking “poaching” Machado.

Anyway, I thought it was a bit ironic that I wound up using the free Rivals site more. I wondered how many others do that just based on the familiarity with it and all that.

      The best we can hope for is that the health will hold up. Tres is a week and half away but more importantly we need him use his Healthy chips and not get hurt again. Big G also looks much slimmer,the baby weight is gone. Kone looks like he won’t be ready until January. When healthy Jaquari Stephen Tres and Drew could be a good team. Need some help from the bench, though. I think what WT said about not mortaging the future for this year speaks volumes that this most likely will be an up and down year, but maybe we can win enough games to get on a roll at the end. But this team really is looking at next season to be a major factor. Tinks like Ucla, uo, and CU and then everybody for fourth.

        I think you’re right about the Katoa connection. So who knows, maybe we land all 3 of Lopini Katoa, Ula Tolutau and Christian Folau, but I’m guessing they all end up elsewhere.

        Speaking of, what’s going on with Thor? He was injured last year, but I haven’t heard much about him this year. Wasn’t he supposed to be a big DL guy for us?

      Love the comment from @utes_pac12.

      He has to be the priority for GA right now. He got him to Wiscy, and it’s not like Madison is a Poly-friendly community. Do Satake and Tuiaki at BYU instead of Utah make a difference? And isn’t he also close to the Katoa brothers?

      We’ll see. I hope his ties to Woods are still strong… and that we can get Nall running downhill… and that he’s in Corvallis in the spring.

        The way I’m remembering last year’s JC recruiting is most if not all of the guys that sounded like they could contribute immediately went elsewhere. In other words a lot of disappointments in not getting what I figured were the A list guys.

          It’s a complete fail on GA’s part. If he’s getting JC’s, they should be able to come in a be in the mix right away. Why even recruit those guys when they only have two years and can’t even compete for a job.

          As far as I can see, none of the JCs from last year’s class are starting. Pretty pathetic.

            They can still provide depth. I’d expect them to be part of the rotation or very good special teams players, I don’t think they all have to start. Sometimes getting them to be an important back up or special teamer can allow you to keep a redshirt on a Frosh and I’m good with that.

            Do agree that he hasn’t recruited JUCO’s as well as I expected though. I expected 5-8 per class early and that they would be contributors, we shall see if that improves this cycle.

        Napoleon and Savea look decent. The Paynes are visible on ST. I’ve seen Hernandez watch a couple balls sail over his head. Cook and White have better players in front of them with limited O snaps.

        Oh, and then there’s that Porebski dude.

        I think any one OL prospect who can play should be recruited and signed… always. But we’re in no man’s land with our roster. We have a lot of sophs and frosh who are a year away from being developed. Some of them are getting time because we don’t have a lot of upperclassmen right now.

        And our games reflect that. I won’t be surprised to see them play a couple really good games this year… to be followed by turds.

        I don’t see any reason to add more developmental juniors to a rather large soph class.

            That being said, I listed six who mostly contribute in some way and are getting better as they play more. And there are a handful of transfers working for (some getting?) ships. So I don’t think they’ve been poor at finding players from other sources besides high school in a short space of time.

    Eggers picks the Bears 42 – 17…

    Cal’s Hansen has 55 receptions and this kid was a transfer from ISU(?). 12 Beavers have 75 receptions on the season….different offense, sure but wow. Collins leads OSU with 21 receptions.

    Its obviously past time for Garretson to complete a deep ball, but I think it happens twice this Saturday. Heavy doses of Nall and Pierce, maybe some a few carries for Lucas, with some shots downfield. I also think its time Collins threw a pass.

    Going to be a long night. Make some good food and get a quality beverage, watch for youthful players who show fight and talent for the future….

      Gina reported that Garretson continued to overthrow the deep ball in practice this week. I know you need to do that sometimes to keep the defense honest, but at what point do you face the reality that it’s just a wasted play and try something different?

        I don’t know what to think of this. When he puts air underneath it, he underthrows. When he times it, he’s over. McMariyon throws the best deep ball, but he looks like a chihuahua trying to get off a dance floor. Blount fell prey to the old inside-screen-pick-six that all our frosh QBs need to do. So maybe he’s good to go now? I do like that he can throw it on the move fairly well.

        I know next year will be better with Moran. But someone has to be able to drop it in the bucket this year.

        Maybe Garretson can run the drill that gives that pass that name? Four trash buckets downfield… drop back… count… drop it in the bucket.

          I suspect he’s overthinking it and the more he tries the harder it is for him to be accurate. He used to hit in practice.

          Or it could that in the back of his mind he’s expecting to get hit and its affecting him.

            The point of that drill is that you’re not trying to hit a target. You’re trying to put the ball a certain distance downfield at the right time with a particular flight path. If he can place the ball in a can 40 yards away without thinking about it, then he doesn’t need to think about it in a game. Just count and release. Let the receiver make adjustments from there.

            Right now the only adjustments they can make are to learn to run a 4.2 40m or grow to ten feet tall.

    Bears are only favored by 14?

    Keys to win –
    – Run heavy offense. Keep clock moving. Keep Cal’s offense off the field.
    – Defense will need to produce some turnovers.
    – A lot of luck and some big offensive plays will keep the Beavs in the game.

    Hard to see a win here. If Cal gets out early like the other teams, it’s all over at halftime.

    I hope its true that OSU is hoping to land 9 JUCO players like Canzano talks about today. That would make me feel much better. In addition to the positions listed in his article (3 OL, S, 2 CB, 2 DL, WR) I’d like to see them chasing a QB which I have not heard.

    That or a graduate transfer QB with FCS or FBS experience. His needs to figure out how to handle the QB position.

      Need to look at Brandt Hughes, gray shirting at Butte College. Father and uncle started as D1 quarterbacks at Wyoming and Northwestern. He is the best qb prospect and most accurate thrower in North Section of California since Aaron Rodgers. Better prospect than Brett Ratliff, Jordan Rodgers ,Chris Petersen and others.

    Victor Enoh committed to Memphis. I was hoping we’d get him, but there are a lot of athletic PFs in the mix still.

      To Tubby Smith?

      Okay?

      I haven’t heard any news about Mading since his eligibility ran out at St. Anthony. He’s reportedly back in Australia doing something. If only we had a coach who knew how to recruit bigs from down under?

    I think the line will look better this week with Harlow shaking the rust off and a week with guys working together in their new positions. I personally wouldn’t mind seeing pierce get the start. He hasbeen more pproductive than nall and has the potential for the big play. When he gets a crease he has the acceleration that makes it look like he’s one tackle away from a huge run or td. I still like nall but he has been outplayed imo by the freshman that continues to improve with more carries.

      Yeah, something’s not right with him. Pierce looks good, he’s shifty, can make a guy miss. I’d give him the bulk of the work tomorrow.

    I love autumn! The cool mornings, occasional refreshing rain shower, the leaves gently falling, the smell of imminent defeat in the air.

    I used to gather the boys in the locker room and rally them with the motivational message; “OK….fellas… Let’s get this over with!!!” JB

      “And try not to trip on the way out.”

      With the Beavs record, and the Ducks descent and atrocious D, we may be headed for a toilet bowl/CW like the data of yore…

      Prop bet made with Duck fan today:

      Nikegon will be losing by more at the time that Cal@OSU kicks off than OSU will lose or win by.

    This seemed appropriate for this post. Apparently GA prefers Beaversedge too.

    I enjoy the discussion on beaverblitz, but yes their window of being “insiders” has passed. I think she was close with Gunderson, so there was some inside access for a period, but it seems like there is reallly only one person on the board who is an insider.

    I know a lot of people bailed from rivals upon the switch, and admittedly, I was turned off by guys from Florida running an OSU site, but they do a great job with recruiting info!

    I was flipping through articles on o-live this morning and found this little nugget, I didn’t realize that Chris Petersen worked for Belotti:

    “Petersen spent six years on Bellotti’s staff at Oregon, so he apparently took Bellotti’s call and listened closely.

    Bellotti says Petersen told him he was more interested in Washington, should it open, but promised to keep Oregon in mind if the opportunity arose.

    When the UO job did open a year later, UO athletic director Rob Mullens apparently didn’t seriously consider Petersen before promoting offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich.”

    On one hand, I can understand hole wanting to keep the continuity of the offensive scheme especially while Mariota was there. If they had hired Petersen they wouldn’t have gone to their last championship game, but looking at the downward slide they are on vs UW’s rise they might be willing to take that trade in hindsight.
