    In all honesty 8-4. There are a lot of questions obviously that OSU has to answer, but I could def see an "Us against the world" mentality growing, which can make any team dangerous, and can sneak up on people. And if there is one thing I have learned over the years... do not underestimate a Mike Riley team thats motivated and not demoralized.

    I would not care if we were 1-11 as long as the one was against Oregon. :)

    Haha! Love it. I think this OSU team goes 3-9. I know that sounds harsh...but, last year was a real bummer with only 5 total wins. They closed the season with a 1-4 run including losses to WSU and UCLA. Ouch. I'm reading reports from practice, watching video from their spring game and things don't look favorable. They are thin and inexperienced at key positions. Very few positives to build upon from last season and the one area where they should focus - QB with Katz, reports say he is looking awful, much like he did in the spring game. Their defense last year was terrible at run stop and that with key players at DT and LB who are no longer there.

    Very thin, talentless team. Their star player, Rogers is coming off some serious knee surgery/rehab and sadly isn't durable or at the level he once was.

    Result: 3-9

    WIN 09/03/11 vs. Sacramento State Corvallis, Ore.
    LOSE 09/10/11 at Wisconsin TV Madison, Wis.
    LOSE 09/24/11 vs. UCLA Corvallis, Ore.
    WIN 10/01/11 at Arizona State Tempe, Ariz.
    LOSE 10/08/11 vs. Arizona Corvallis, Ore.
    LOSE 10/15/11 vs. BYU Corvallis, Ore.
    LOSE 10/22/11 vs. Washington State CenturyLink Field, Seattle
    LOSE 10/29/11 at Utah Salt Lake City, Utah
    LOSE 11/05/11 vs. Stanford Corvallis, Ore.
    LOSE 11/12/11 at California AT&T Park, San Francisco
    WIN 11/19/11 vs. Washington Corvallis, Ore.
    LOSE 11/26/11 at Oregon Eugene, Ore.

    Targus, I will bet you $100 that we win more than 3 games. Deal?

    You're predicting a RB. I'm predicting a 3 win season. A team will probably need to win 10 games to see Pasadena. Split the difference and I'll spot you two. Beavs will win 5 games or less. I'll go a Ben on 5 or less.

    No WAY this thin on talent Beav team wins 6+ games this year. Sac State is a win, BYU and Wisconsin are loses. You're left with needing 5 more in fairly tough conference play. Not going to happen.

    Below is from rivals. You guys are small, very small - Oregon is by far not the biggest team in the Pac, but we probably have 10-15 pounds on you across the line. The only player that goes over 300 pounds can't even run and is low on the depth chart and should not be a starter (according to team-mates). I was also surprised at how short your OL and DT/DE are:

    OFFENSE
    QB Ryan Katz (6-1/212, Jr.)
    RB Ryan McCants (6-1/237, Sr.)
    H-BACK Joe Halahuni (6-2/258, Sr.)
    WR Markus Wheaton (6-0, 180, Jr.)
    WR James Rodgers (5-7/188, Sr.)
    WR Jordan Bishop (6-3/204, Jr.)
    T Michael Philipp (6-3/298, Jr.)
    T Mike Remmers (6-4/295, Sr.)
    G Burke Ellis (6-4/290, Sr.)
    G Grant Johnson (6-3/293, Sr.
    C Josh Andrews (6-2/286, So.)

    DEFENSE
    E Dominic Glover (6-2/263, Sr.)
    T Kevin Frahm (6-2/270, Sr.)
    T Castro Masaniai (6-2/341, Jr.)
    E Andrew Seumalo (6-3/275, Jr.)
    LB Cameron Collins (6-2/244, Sr.)
    LB Michael Doctor (5-11/223, So.)
    LB Rueben Robinson (6-3/235, Jr.)
    CB Brandon Hardin (6-2/220, Sr.)
    CB Jordan Poyer (5-11/189, Jr.)
    FS Lance Mitchell (6-2/206, Jr.)
    SS Anthony Watkins (6-1/224, Jr.)
