I've been surfing the net for OSU Beaver articles, and the common piece is about how all the "message boards" are calling for Sean Canfield's head. There is a nice heart felt piece about Moevao text messaging Canfield a love note...great.....
I studied communications at OSU and one of the things it taught me was when to smell B.S. I read comments on all the major sites and the Canfield vs. Moevao argument is minimal.
I don't think Canfield was the reason OSU lost to Cincy. Quite the contrary, the offensive line got it's ass kicked and Quizz was not 100%. PLEASE STOP BASHING CANFIELD. I know he sucks, but so does Moevao, neither are top-tier talents. I think Sean has showed a lot of poise, which also can be construed as holding on to the ball too long. Either way, he is capable of winning 70% of his games if everyone else does their job.
Speaking of which, the OSU defense is average at best. I love Banker, I am sure he can make it work. The LB's are too small, fast yes, but over-powered with good tecnique. This year's D has done okay with stopping the run, but those stats are misleading when the opponents can pass for 20 yds at an 80% completion rate.
Arizona is a great opportunity for the Beavers to dominate and have a big win to start their Pac-10 campaign. Given the competiveness of the Pac-10 this year, the Beavers need all the help they can get.
