Tough depressing times here at PNW. Mariners did their normal thing, no one cares btw… but beavs are in a downward spiral that we have not seen in our life times.
Hard to watch honestly with the most recent issue being coaches integrity. Regarding Hodgins, arguably OSU’s best receiver not playing, our offensive coordinator and passing game coordinator say, 2 receiver sets… yet film shows MANY 3 receiver sets especially with Togai injured. It is one thing to not throw players under the bus but to in our opinion have integrity issues regarding telling the truth? Seriously?
Could have just said, “violation of team rules.” And NO ONE would have thought any different.
The Beaver offense is in disarray. If Andersen does not make a change in offseason, our faith in him will be at an extreme low. We believe in the man in charge but he must get that right.
Defense on the other hand doesn’t seem as crazy as people think. They have shown improvement every game. That cannot be said about the offense. The defense played good enough to beat the best team in the pac-12. Yes the 4th and 10 was killer but psychologically and physically, no defense can hold up when the offense is doing nothing. Pressure is getting up there, secondary was impressive. Still weak at linebacker but I think it goes up to a lot of inexperience from young players that Andersen has brought in.
Can we please stop the Marcus McMaryion cries? He would have the same record right now as the current team. He is playing the likes of Nevada and San Jose State. Not exactly the PAC-12. Yes he had the mojo but it’s not like comparing Luton to Tebow here.
What he did give was an identity to the offense. I think this team misses him as a leader and the guy to get behind. It is nearly impossible to get behind a JC player in his first year or a transfer that is a coaches pet and the 18th best QB in the pac-12. Yes you heard that right, the backups for WSU, UW, Stanford, ASU, Utah, Colorado are all LIGHT YEARS ahead of Garretson. The dude wouldn’t start for the championship intramural squads at OSU. That is no joke.
Ride or die to USC and Hawks Rams this weekend.
