WTS: Are Beavs perplexing, or as expected?

ALL THE GOOD that was done in Oregon State's win the week before, the scribes say, was undone against the Huskies on Saturday night. Here's what they're saying ...

Everything (Ryan Murphy) saw from the Huskies on the field mirrored what the Beavers had identified on film throughout the week. He's part of a veteran-laden unit, but the mounting disappointing performances have perhaps now shifted from perplexing to expected.

OSU is 5-6, 2-6 in the Pac-12. The postseason now is all but unreachable and a seventh consecutive Civil War loss to Oregon all but inevitable.
-Ken Goe, Oregonian

Now Oregon State's road to the postseason is simple: Beat Oregon. That's what the Beavers are left with after their demoralizing 37-13 defeat to Washington Saturday night at Husky Stadium.

The Beavers couldn’t have had a slower start to the game.
-Kevin Hampton, Corvallis-Gazette Times

Thorny miscues provided OSU's undoing. The Beavers missed tackles, surrendered big plays and sputtered in crucial moments.
-Connor Letourneau, Oregonian

This was a game the Huskies were favored to win, and a game they certainly should have won.
-Christian Caple, News Tribune

All four of UW’s touchdowns came on plays of 36 yards or more.

It's easy to understand the fans' concerns. The Beavers have a senior-laden defense and the Pac-12's all-time leading passer. They have lost five of their last six anyway.
-Ken Goe, Oregonian

the Huskies also showed a resiliency that will serve them well moving forward.
-Larry Stone, Seattle Times

The Beavers were without leading rusher Terron Ward... and finished with 47 yards rushing as a team, the fourth time this season being held under 60 yards.

This game had much more in common with the consecutive losses to Stanford, California and Washington State... Stanford, Cal and WSU aren't very good football teams. Neither is Washington.
-Ken Goe, Oregonian
