Taking a quick look at the horrendous football team in Corvallis

Oregon State football is bad. We have proof. Look inside

Oregon State is bad. Really bad. How bad? You could make the case that this is the worst team in the last 15 years of the Pac 10/12, right up there with 2001 Cal, 2008 Washington, 2008 Washington State, and 2012 Colorado. The Beavers are 0-4 in Pac 12 play, having been outscored by an averag of 38.7 to 15. That doesn't sounds god-awful until you realize that three of those games were against arguably the second and third worst teams in the conference in Colorado and Arizona, along with average Washington State. With Utah, UCLA, Cal, Washington, and Oregon still to come, those numbers will get uglier.

Gary Andersen knew that this would be a rebuild in year one in Corvallis, but I doubt he anticipated it would be this bad. Now that their best opportunity for a conference win is gone (a home loss to Colorado), it's about development and getting the young guys ready for 2016, assuming he doesn't jump for a new job....again.

Seth Collins is a dual threat quarterback that is barely breaking the 50% completion mark. They can run it a bit with the two headed attack of Strom Woods and Ryan Nall, but the passing game is just abysmal at 153 yards per game. Defensively, they're giving up over 400 yards per game and have generated only 10 turnovers.

There really isn't much else to say about Oregon State that the picture below doesn't do a good job of trying to explain who there are for 2015.
