04.Oct.2017 Coaches Lying, Hodgins, etc

If you haven’t listened to it, the Sprague/Machado podcast is pretty interesting. They field one of my questions (26:30 mark), but the more interesting part is their dour outlook. When optimistic homers like those two are in the doldrums you know it’s bad.

Some other notes:

— Gary Andersen needs to be on Twitter for recruiting purposes. He’s not in the modern age.

— McGiven lied in his response about Hodgins. This is well documented now. Why lie when it’s something fans/reporters can easily go fact check? Lying to the fans is concerning. Gary saying he doesn’t know why a 4-star recruit isn’t playing is, in essence, a cover for their incompetence, and it’s worse than admitting error.

— Hodgin’s dad confirmed Isaiah was 100% healthy, had one of his best weeks of practice, zero discipline issues. Said Andersen is losing control of coaches and team.

— Speaking of Hodgins, does his brother now de-commit because of how the coaches handled Isiah? If so, we lose a much needed DT. Important to keep the commit and keep Isiah from transferring, yet these coaches are jerking around.

— Would be interesting if CO and WSU fans chimed in to tell us if this is normal for a rebuild. I remember wanting Leach at OSU; when he was struggling people chided me about it and said his personality wasn’t a good fit. Maybe, but he’s a good coach. GA’s obsession with Leach’s offense has ruined his (GA’s) career.

— Why does GA run off QBs? Not just the ones of this roster, but remember in recruiting when they got weird with Davy Moore and the Utah kid (Greek name that I can’t remember right now, but he set every State record). Beavs have now had 6 starting QBs under GA. It’s equally weird on the recruiting trail. What’s his beef with QBs?

— Petras is the only QB hope for this program. Don’t see a winning D1 QB on the current roster.

— When things are at their lowest, the only way is up, and it’s usually not as bad as it seems. Beavs in an upset this weekend??!..

01.Oct.2017 Tips/Gossip?

Last year and earlier this year some guy showed up here and said something like, “All is not well with GA and the team” and then left. I read some other rumblings like that on other sites. Anyone know what was behind that?

We now have someone saying the coaches are sleeping with co-eds. Sure, legal, but unprofessional and a bit taboo.

I sensed the team chemistry issues in the Nall/Luton interview. Something is going on.

If anyone has info drop it, or email me (contact button on the right).

30.Sep.2017 Washington @ Oregon State

Go Beavs??

(Translation: don’t lose by 50 so we can claim progress and trust the process!)

26.Sep.2017 Moving on to Washington

This should be an easy win, right? I mean Gary Andersen says he’s trying harder than ever, and Ed Ray promised teams would regret coming to our house.

Oh wait…

Since GA will get at least a 4th year, we’ll be left watching a blowout while pondering who the next head coach will be. If it’s anyone desirable, they won’t be available next year. Sure, it’s still possible GA turns things around if the old dog learns new tricks (sound familiar?) and gets over the stubbornness, or we keep receiving divine intervention (e.g. Luton going down is the football gods doing Andersen’s job for him). Upgrades via attrition or injury are the worst types; they are embarrassing in that they highlight the cluelessness of the coaches. I do like that GA is still keeping his head high, at least verbally, and saying all the right things. He deserves any pain he is in for his stubbornness. Does he learn from his player analysis/judgement errors? That’s a question the media should be asking. It’s the only important question right now.

Garretson might be in over his head versus this tough stretch of opponents, but what I like about him is (a) the team seems to rally around him more than Luton, (b) he runs, and (c) he has moxie (d) he’s more of a game manager. He’s a backup QB at best, but so we Luton, and I like DG more out of those two choices. It’s a shame he gets this tough part of the schedule. Watch Luton miss this difficult stretch then return for the easy back half, do well, and people become convinced he’s the answer (something they didn’t grant to McM versus the easier opponents). Ah, so much bias and hate.

Regarding this game, obviously we lose, and the only interesting story is to see if Garretson is better than Luton and GA messed up the QB’s again. Seeing how the team rallys around Garretson will be interesting, too. I’ve watched some Washington — solid team with a coach who knows exactly what he’s doing. Beavs never seem to be the team that brings in a backup QB who goes all-world and pulls an upset (in fact, that always happens against us). It’s hard to imagine any situation where this turns out well.

Washington 56, OSU 20
