Grool's keys to the game

With a week off and time to prepare for what is possibly the worst team in the league this year, the Beavers are primed to pull off their first win since 1985 in Seattle. Washington head coach Keith Gilbertson is on his way out the door and a loss to the Beavers could seal his fate.

Rumor has it that this is a huge recruiting weekend for the Huskies as they have big names such as Spurrier, Hawkins and Urban Meyer on their official visits, so expect the players to compete at a high level. Here is what OSU needs to do in order to win.


1. Establish a running game
Hell, why do I even bother putting writing this one down?  The good news is Oregon State can't get any worse in this category, the bad news is they are the worst...the worst in the entire nation and that is bad, verrrrry bad.



2. Use the entire offense
Quarterback Derek Anderson needs to move his head and look at his third and fourth options.  If those guys are not open look for that fifth option.  The way that Derek currently goes through his progressions we might as well just leave an extra guy back there to block.  Bold prediction...wide receiver Mike Haas has a big game...150 plus yards and three touchdowns...Reggie who?



3. Contain Charles Fredrick
I still have nightmares about this guy. He torched the Beavs so bad last year that my arse is still burning.  If he makes one big play OSU must not panic, but suck it up and keep on believing.
