finally something Beavs and Ducks can agree with
I don't have a dog in the fight but god damn I want the beavs to win to set up that BEAUTIFUL possible final match up ever with Oregon next week (a little dramatic I know lol)
Penix isn’t helping his guys by slinging those rockets at them. He has so much velocity on those throws that they’re just bouncing off their hands. That’s partially on him.
That was the complaint about Elway for years.
Slinging is fine, but when it was that wet out, he wasn’t helping anyone.
Osu's qb really doesn't like throwing the easy yards on the shorter pass.
Too bad. Bad play call on 2nd and 11
Should have checked down and took the 5-6 yards on 2nd down.
DJU ain’t the guy. You guys need a decent QB. That’s all you’re missing.
That’s game. Good luck Ducks.
I really didn't expect that bad-snap safety to be the difference in the game....
How many of those contested sideline passes did he complete?
Many times with a closer guy wide open.
The beavers spot the other team 2-3 points every game in some fashion.
It has cost them in some of the games.
Don’t worry beavs,
agreed. and to be clear, i am not suggesting the refs call the game any way but honest. for years, the pac-12 refs have been harder against the superior teams in the games i’ve watched. for the first time, i feel like it’s been different. but they’re still terrible.
GREAT effort by the Beavs.
as is my tendency, a couple of years ago I compiled a bunch of stats for a football forum I'm on. Well, not a bunch, just a couple of categories
over a 10 year period, the Pac-12 averaged having 7.8 teams in the bottom-30, in the nation, for number of penalties and penalty yardage. And, IIRC it was 8.7 teams in the bottom 3rd (out of 125-132 teams; maybe it was bottom-half). It was insane looking at the numbers and it clearly demonstrated that Pac-12 officials can't stop blowing their damn whistles. It sure didn't mean that somehow, the Pac-12 had gathered together the most undisciplined 12 teams in the nation
IIRC, I think SI did a study on penalties and found that the Pac-12 officials called something like 80% more pass interference penalties than any other conference. PI being one of the most prone-to-bad-judgement calls there is, and for sure, the Pac-12 has that call on blast. The offensive PI against Terrance Ferguson yesterday was almost as bad as the defensive PI against the Ducks last week
now, being a Duck fan, I agree with you that it seems Oregon has been the victim of more crucial game-turning penalties than any other team. But I usually don't watch every minute of every game not the Ducks. And it sure seems that over the last 2 years I've never seen a team get the benefit of almost every questionable and outright bad call as Washington has. But for the most part, I think Pac-12 officials are a lot more incompetent than biased
I was gonna say…. 80% more PI calls, except for on Washington.
We had the better team, but we didn’t deserve to win. You don’t win many games when you lose the turnover battle 3-1.
