Alright.... Im trying again..
I think its very important, entering rivalry week and the bowls, that we look at actual yardage and not just season rankings. This helps us analyze what a team has done in their specific conference, nut just against everyone. It does no one any good thinking a team with a Offensive Rushing ranking of 86 could be mediocre IF the teams ranked lower didn't even make bowls. So I begin....
I think the "just found out mom & dad are swingers" stat is the Boise pass defense. Wow are they bad. Fresno, BYU, ColSt, SDSU (460, 340, 400, 290 respectively) too full advantage of the week secondary. For the season they gave up 250 on average. Against the run, giving up 160 a game. This may not be ORESt's sweet spot, but it will definitely open up some opportunities when they're on their heels waiting for another Napalm Bomb. Big offensive advantage for The Beavers here.
Where do I begin with the Boise Offense???? With Southwick booted the dual QB system goes to sh!t. And the run game (Hendrick a dual threat) will be the focus. I know ORESt is no brick wall, but their run D woes were highlighted a bit with STAN, ORE, UCLA and ARI on schedule. This can get tighted down against the 4th best team in the MW. Moore and Williams-Rhodes combined for about 110 catches and 900 yds. Both are questionable to suit up. Eeeek. Bigger play if they are out.
Pissing over the balcony?!?!?! What is this, The Vet, in Philly??? Kids – keep it in the chat rooms and BDSM halls.
Regarding The Beavers last 5 games… ORE (10), WASH (un), ASU (14), USC (25^), STAN (5). I think you just take out the AmEx and charge it. Boise would have finished no better, considering their season was comprised of NO RANKED TEAMS (final AP, my assumption).
The last time these two played was in Las Vegas (2010). I think that game is too far away for the kids to have an “emotional” revenge attitude, but I’m positive Mike Riley hasn’t forgotten it.
Coachless, Golden Showers, and But Chuggin – recipe for a no cover. (ok…. I made up the wine story)
UNDER BIG, ORESt, (depending on BSU WRs = bigger)
But hey, what do I know…… I’m .500 in bowls, .400 in work’s SU picks.
