Oregon State Beavers Predictable As Losses Pile Up

It seems that Sean Mannion and his aerial assault on the record books has taken an indefinite leave of absence. For the past two games, Oregon State’s offense has been predictable, while Stanford and USC have demonstrated quite clearly that the Beavers are not yet ready to compete with the upper echelon of the Pac-12. Despite an impressive run of games that saw the Beavers bounce...

Good, Great, and Gamble Plays Week 7

Week 6 was not one of the better weeks as far as the GGG plays are concerned. There are some good matchups this week and hopefully these picks can help you make those final roster decisions. Quarterbacks Good QB: Blake Bell, Oklahoma (vs. Texas)- We know how Bell can be used running the ball but he has developed into a pretty good passer as well. He is looking down field a lot...

Football Friday on a Thursday Week Seven 2013

Well folks we have passed the halfway point of the season and the Cougs are sitting pretty at 4-2. This is about as good as even the most optimistic forecasts you could find for the Cougs before the season started, so we have plenty to be excited about. Now we finally get a conference home game as the Beavers roll into Pullman with a 4-1 record and one of the most prolific offenses...

Not So Fast!: Week 6 Rankings

Hello Followers.  Hope your week is off to a great start! As many of you know, last Friday, I picked the Cougs to lose to the not-so-mighty Golden Bears of CAL.  And while that pick may look a bit foolish now, my reason for that pick extended beyond my irrational anxiety about that game.

Colorado returns after long layoff to face Beavers

Neither Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre nor Oregon State coach Mike Riley are sure what they'll see on Saturday from the Buffaloes. Colorado won its first two games under new head coach MacIntyre. But then deadly flooding around Boulder earlier this month forced the cancellation of a home game against Fresno State. The players chipped in with the recovery efforts before a bye...

Week 4: PAC-12 Conference Power Rankings

Oregon (3-0) Ducks usurp the top spot from Stanford by hanging 59 on an SEC team (yes, Tennessee still qualifies). That trumps Stanford’s 34-20 win over Army, sorry Cardinal. The Ducks’ quack attack looks unstoppable. The defense is making noise, too.  Mariota looks like a legit Heisman candidate.  Alabama/Oregon looms as the national Championship match-up, barring any hiccups...

Oregon State Beavers Running Game Will Shine In 2013

With the upcoming Oregon State Beavers football season only a few weeks away, there are definitely things to look forward to seeing. Sure, there are question marks surrounding the issue at quarterback between Sean Mannion and Cody Vaz. And the question of who fills in the gigantic shoes Markus Wheaton left behind at wide receiver.
