    Too many opportunities missed early!

  • Eric

    The play-calling thus far has been HORRIBLE.

  • Eric

    3 and 8 at the 38. RUN THE BALL and play for two plays.

  • Eric

    We should be up at least 13-0, and we are giving away points.

  • Eric

    Once again, another missed opportunity. Maybe Best had control on the ground, but doesn’t matter. If we lose, we lost in the first quarter with the play-calling and the screw-ups.

    Gee Cal State is choking. Did I not call this game? Did I not say that Masoli would put together a great game and exploit your middle becuase your safeties cannot cover? You are no #6 rated team.

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    Both Oregon’s best cover people are out of the game and your team still can’t pass. This is pathetic. Did I not say that Riley would choke in front of his family and friends?

    Stick a fork in it. You are done and I called it. Oregon is missing their best rusher, their 2 best cover guys, their QB sucks and they are blowing you guys out. This is is a blow out. You are way overrated. The Cal State collapse begins now on its way to Vegas.

    I am embarassed. This is on the coaches.

    First drive, we get a gift. We throw three straight times (the first being a sack), and we are lucky to get a field goal.

    On Oregon’s drive, Syd should have picked off the pass, but does not.

    On our next drive, Tucker drops a good pass that would have been for a TD.

    We get the fumble, but rather than hitting the deck, our CB has to try to run, and guess what happens.

    D’Amato misses a long FG, but we never should have been in that situation – we get that stupid taunting penalty – since we should have been playing for two. Instead, on 3 and 10, we throw a crowded bubble screen. Had we run Best on 3 and 10 at the 40, he would have gained 5-6 yards.

    Our defense was good against the run, but is now run down. The pass defense is pathetic.

    We have had great field position and have done nothing with it.

    Vereen shouldn’t be cutting back, but should running with his blocks.

    On 3 and 2 with 8 in the box, that is the time to throw a quick out.

    We needed to play aggressively, and we have not. Oregon is playing aggressively and, by dodging two early bullets, has confidence.

    This is on the coaching staff.

    The defense needs to step up when things aren’t going well. They have done the opposite. They are just getting out of the way for a freshman running back and a nobody tight end.

    Tedford’s teams are not good road teams. I love the guy, but he sure loses a lot on the road.

    Even daddy turned off the TV and went to the country club for lunch. He said “I knew they would choke.”

    BTW where is GoldenBear. Oh that’s right. He went into hibernation. We will see him sometime again for the 2010 season.
