OSU tames UW 29-23
(photo source: ESPN)
This was one of the weirdest Beaver games I've seen in awhile.
This game will be remembered for a lot of reasons:
1)OSU has a four game win streak against UW for the first time ever
2)The Pac-10 officiating crew was probably THE WORST EVER. The Bonnell QB sneak call was the start of a pitiful night for the officials. The Bernard fumble call was so insanely stupid I yelled at the TV. They nearly cost OSU a lot of money. The personal foul and ejection calls were horrible too. Yes the Beav's did some things wrong and deserved to be penalized. But most of the calls were crap.
3)Al Afalava's hit on Jake Locker was clean and awesome. Jake needs to learn that if he wants a future at the QB position, he needs to learn to protect himself.
4)Yvenson Bernard ran for 149 yards on a completely bum shoulder. He has huge heart.
5)Moevao only turned the ball 2 times. That's a 50% improvement on his avg. He is not a Pac-10 QB. Canfield probably won't play against WSU, so expect more 100 yd passing days.
6)Victor Butler is a first round draft pick, his size and speed is insane.
7)Derrick Doggett is mid-round pick, unless he can add more weight and speed.
8)Serna had a good game with 5 field goals, and only one shanked punt.
9)OSU's special teams made some great plays all night
10)OSU is going to a bowl in 2007
Next up WAZZU, which is definitely winnable. The Oregon game is going to be a tough one.
BTW- Here is another hit on Jake Locker. This clip is from the USC game. I guess Jake is a hardhead, because if I got hit like this, I would change my attitude.
