No insults intended; this is really just some gameweek fun ... so have a laugh. These quotes were removed from any relevant context that would give them any logical sense .... These quotes are courtesy of Angry Beavs:
On whether beating UW will do anything for the Beavs
Bob D needs to retire now. It’s the best thing for everyone.
The only win that will change things this year is an absolute beat down of Oregon. That’ll bring back the donors.
I’m really looking forward to next year’s team. I kindof hope they finish this season poorly at this point, in order to be mad going into the offseason. The coaches and players need to be hungry for success next year, and the schedule is perfect for them to do some damage (as long as they practice tackling during fall camp)
Washington won’t change anything because we are 98% likely to lose to Oregon as awful as that sounds. Riley is nowhere close and the playcalling with over reliance on passing shows how he is just wildly taking stabs that are appear ever more desperate against better teams. Also way too many mistakes finishing on real opportunities.
Didn’t change anything for me, except that it’s a nice win. Doesn’t erase Coppin State, Sac State, EWU, the usual *pbbbt*s from basketball and football, and the entrenchment of mediocrity.
Questions Needing Answers
Offense: Can we start this game off with some quick scores instead of quick fumbles? Who's going to start at QB? How many yards will Sankey rack up against a weak Oregon State run defense? Which wideout will breakout this game?
Defense: Can we please stop the Beaver Passing attack? Maybe snag some interceptions? Maybe some fumbles? How is the pass rush going to look? Who's gonna get the first sack for the Dawgs? Does anyone else think that Danny Shelton is amazingly fast for his size ... I mean for somebody half his size?
Miscellaneous: Is anyone against the Mannion from last year playing this game? Why can't we just beat somebody on the road ... I don't even care if the game is close or not ...?
This game looks to be a shootout. Our defense has had some issues with opposing passing attacks as of late, and Oregon State can't stop people from running the ball. I can see the over on this game being 70, or even 80 ... that being said, what I think will happen rarely happens these days ... so I'm going against my gut, which has been growing in recent months ... and am picking a "lower" scoring affair tonight. Final score: Huskies 27 Beavers 24
- This is one of the last games for Beaver O-lineman Philip Long ... good luck replacing that guy Mr. Riley.
- Here's a Q & A between Andy Panda of building the dam and our own Cassino and KirkD.
- The Huskies are 1.5 point dogs in the game and the spread is as high as 60.5
Come on over to the game thread to have a little bit of jovial banter with fellow Dawg fans, and the occasional troll. You'll be happy you did. It opens up a half hour or so before kickoff.
