    [2020] Week #12 - Saturday Night

    Our defense did everything it needed to do on the back of BLT. My offense just can’t figure it out.

    [2022] PAC-12 Superlatives: Week 11

    Really hoping that Zach McFadden makes his touches worth it Saturday night, it’s going to be a great matchup!
  5. I would just continue to gameplan whatever you have been doing for that +2 turnover margain and aim to stop the pass. Oregon statistically shows that they’re a team that relies on the pass and hope that your run defense is good enough to hold it down.
  6. Theres a part of me that wants to watch the world burn and have you upset Oregon which would create chaos the next few weeks of the regular season. Other part of me wants to see a PAC-12 team in the playoffs. It’s interesting to me how well Newby works in Stanford’s system despite being a 3.0 of 3.0 player. At the end of the day defense wins games, and I just don’t think Stanford’s defense will be able to hold up especially in the pass game.
  7. I’m just hoping the rest of the secondary can handle the rest of your receivers you’ve gotta talented bunch at that position group. We’ve been playing well against the run I’m just hoping we can stop Davis from getting even close to 300 yards passing. With that hat said good luck!!
  8. Stanford-Oregon Week 12 Matchup Stanford (5-3) (4-1 Pac-12) at Oregon (7-1) (5-0 Pac-12) There's nothing more exciting than a matchup towards the end of the regular season that has the potential to decide who will play in a conference championship game. Currently Oregon sits at the top of the Pac-12 North, with Stanford and Washington one game behind each. At this point of the season Oregon controls it's own destiny, which is a ton of pressure to bear with a Stanford team coming off a big win against Notre Dame that has a lot of offensive firepower. The Cardinals travel to Eugene, Oregon housing an explosive backfield with Senior Quarterback Troy McMurray and Redshirt Junior Bryce Newby. Aspirations are for the Cardinals this weekend as they look to remove the Ducks from the number 1 spot in the Pac-12 North. Meanwhile the Ducks' solid front seven, and Redshirt Senior signal caller Jason Baum looks to fend off the Cardinals by exploiting this Stanford defense. Statistical Comparison Offense Stanford - Oregon Points per game: 33.38 - 28.25 Passing yards per game: 277.38 - 238.63 Rushing yards per game: 168.25 - 80 Defense Stanford - Oregon Passing yards per game: 242.88 - 194.38 Rushing yards per game: 96.13 - 101.5 Turnover margin: +2 - +1 Stanford Offensive Player to Watch QB Troy McMurray 6-2 189 Sr Allan Hancock College (Santa Maria CA) 5.0 of 5.0 [Scrambling] Season Stats: 160/215 Comp/Att, 74.42 Comp%, 2219 Yards, 19 Touchdowns, 2 Interceptions, 67 Carries, 636 Yards, 7 Touchdowns, 9.49 YPC Coming off of a huge home win against an evenly matched Notre Dame team, Troy McMurray led the Cardinals to a victory scoring 14 of their 28 points in the 4th quarter. McMurray accounted for a total 337 yards of offense last Saturday night, throwing for 229 yards and 2 touchdowns while rushing for 108 yards on 9 attempts and 1 touchdown. Averaging 12 yards a carry he was able to reduce most of the work load for running back Bryce Newby. Despite those huge numbers last week, McMurray is going to be playing a much more solid Oregon defense assisted by a hostile crowd in Eugene. Stanford Defensive Player to Watch FS Marc Fox 6-1 197 (Sr) Bakersfield College (Bakersfield, CA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Zone Coverage] Season Stats: 21 Tackles, 1 Interception, 1 Pass Deflection Marc Fox was quiet last week against Notre Dame, but I wouldn't worry too much if I were Stanford. The Cardinals matchup against an Oregon offense that isn't afraid to sling the ball. With Stanford's inability to control the pass game against quality opponents this season, the talented Free Safety Fox is going to have to be able to hangover the top and establish a no fly zone for this defense with the rest of this Stanford secondary. Expect this secondary to be tested by Oregon Quarterback Jason Baum, and expect Redshirt Senior Marc Fox to make a name for himself in this huge Pac-12 North game. Oregon Offensive Player to Watch QB Jason Baum 6-1 230 (Sr) Temecula Valley (Temecula, CA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Scrambling] Season Stats: 162/296 Att/Comp, 54.73 Comp%, 1909 Yards, 15 Touchdowns, 9 Interceptions, 26 Carries, 119 Yards, 3 Touchdowns, 4.58 YPC Redshirt Senior Jason Baum just knows how to get the job done. His statistics aren't flashy, but that doesn't matter as much as his ability to control the game from behind the center. Baum plays a huge role in whether or not Oregon wins this Saturday due to the sole fact that he accounts for 9 out of the 10 Oregon turnovers this year. If Baum can keep the ball out of Stanford's hands it could be a long game for this Stanford defense that allows 242.68 passing yards per game. Oregon Defensive Player to Watch CB Jamir Lacey 5-11 166 Jr Central (Independence OR) 5.0 of 5.0 [Zone Coverage] Season Stats: 10 Tackles, 6 Interceptions, 7 Pass Deflections, 1 Touchdown If I were Stanford or anybody else's offensive playcaller, I would think long and heard before I decided to throw it towards Lacey. Not often do you see a defensive back total 6 interceptions before the season is over and the best part about it is that Lacey is still a junior. Lacey has the potential to become one of the NFL's top prospects in the near future if he throws on some weight. In the mean time Jamir Lacey should have an absolute field day against Stanford's inexperienced receiving corps. Stanford's Keys to Victory - Dominate the run game and control the clock - Balance is good - Take the ball away from Jason Baum Oregon's Keys to Victory - Exploit Stanford's secondary - Don't become 1 dimensional, establish a run game - Maintain possession, don't let McMurray and Newby get hot We have an exciting matchup in Eugene, Oregon this weekend that will be under national spotlight for sure. If Stanford manages to pull of an upset this weekend and Washington handles California, we'll have a 3 way tie going for first place in the Pac-12 North. Can Stanford's offense keep it rolling after their excellent performance against Notre Dame? Or will the pressure be too much for McMurray? Will the Ducks hold on first place and become one step closer to clinching the Pac-12 North? Only time will tell the answer to those questions, prepare yourself for a roller coaster of a matchup this Saturday Night!

    I just opened a new tab to deduct my coaching skills until I read this. With that being said I'm excited to see how the new skills impact next season!
  10. Thanks a ton! Mercer will be a problem for sure, our goal is to let our backs get after it behind an offensive line that loves to get dirty in the trenches. Since I've been at Cal Ellison also seems to perform better in the air when he has less attempts. And for sure I'll start working on that right now that's going to be a great matchup, should be up within the next 2 hours!
  11. I put emphasis on that match up but even down the line the there are going to be great matchups between our DB's and their WR's all game! Excited for next season already, I finished my 2023 roster earlier this week and on offense we lose 1 starter at the WR position, and 4 defensive starters which will hurt a bit unfortunately especially at the corner spot.
  12. California Week 12 Matchup Preview California (4-4) (2-4 Pac-12) - Washington (6-2) (3-2 Pac-12) California welcomes a great Washington football team to Berkeley, California this week. The Golden Bears are coming off a low scoring conference win against Oregon State last week. With an offense led by Redshirt Sophomore Quarterback Nick Ellison, who threw for 16/27 200 yards 1 touchdown 0 interceptions and rushed for 36 yards on 5 attempts with a 15 yard rush being his longest on the day. The game against Oregon State rested upon this Cal offense's shoulders as their defense held the Beavers to 160 yards in the air and 1 interception by Redshirt Senior Cornerback Aaden Dent, while also holding their run game to just 99 yards on the ground. The Huskies on the other hand are coming off of a tough loss against conference foe Colorado, and are looking to get back on track and make a statement against a newly coached California ball team. Statistical Comparison Offense California - Washington Points per game: 20.25 - 31.63 Passing yards per game: 208.13 - 308.38 Rushing yards per game: 92.75 - 100.88 Defense California - Washington Passing yards per game: 203.63 - 203.75 Rushing yards per game: 83.75 - 104.63 Turnover margin: -2 - +8 Washington Players to Watch QB Jake Davis 6-3 227 Jr Skyline (Sammamish WA) 4.5 of 5.0 [Pocket] Despite Colorado's ability to hold the Junior pocket passer to under 200 yards in the air, Jake Davis is having himself a pretty good season so far. He isn't a threat on the ground, but the way he is able to take control of the game is a huge advantage for this Washington offense. As of week 11 Jake Davis has hit 178 of his 268 passes for a completion percentage of 66.42 while accumulating 2467 yards in the air. Davis has also thrown for 22 touchdowns and just 4 interceptions, sitting with an impressive QBR of 167.85. Needless to say, Jake Davis's performance will dictate the final outcome of this week's matchup. WR Jason Ivy 6-5 214 (Sr) Glendale (Glendale, CA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Target] Washington's leading receiver Jason Ivy has been a deep ball threat all season. At 6'5 214 pounds Ivy has a huge size advantage against defensive backs which makes him a great target on the outside for Jake Davis. The Redshirt Senior currently has 44 catches for 623 yards and 7 touchdowns averaging 77.88 yards per catch. It'll be interesting to see how he matches up against Cal's corners who love lining up face to face at the line, especially 5.0 of 5.0 [Man Coverage] Senior Cornerback Blaine Lewis-Thompson who measures up at 5'11 193 pounds who is our defensive player to watch for California. California Players to Watch RB Zachary McFadden 5-10 190 (Jr) Mammoth (Lakes, CA) 4.0 of 4.5 [Speed] This California offense has seen a familiar trend this season. McFadden plays well and they win. The Redshirt Junior isn't going to bruise you between the tackles at 5'10 190 pounds, but if you allow him to hit top gear then it's off to the races. He's currently averaging 5.31 yards per carry, on 118 carries for 627 yards. Having Ellsion be able to use his legs and take some of work load off of his shoulders is a huge factor to his performance. McFadden will look to have back to back 100+ games this week against a Washington defense that allows 101 rushing yards per game. CB Blaine Lewis-Thompson 5-11 193 Sr Monterey (Monterey, CA) 5.0 of 5.0 [Man Coverage] Lewis-Thompson is the definition of a lockdown corner. His lack of stats is the consequence that comes with a lack of targets. With only 1 interception this season, this California defense is going to need takeaways. Considering Washington's turnover margin is +8 compared to Cal's -2, This California secondary is going to have to play a major role if they intend on upsetting the Huskies. Despite the height disadvantage, Blaine Lewis-Thompson intends on giving Huskies Wide Receiver Jason Ivy hell Saturday Night. Keys To Victory - Hold on to the ball, turnovers will result in a loss. - Control the air and don't let Jake Davis get hot. - McFadden needs to make his carries count. Overall, California is facing a high powered Washington Offense that will not slow down. Cal's offense is going to have to pick it up relieve some pressure off of their defense, if not there's no shot they pull off a win. Turnovers hurt teams and Washington is great at making takeaways, Cal's goal should be to minimize their turnovers and capitalize on the Huskies mistakes. If the Golden Bears plan on making it bowling this season this weekend is a huge step towards a bowl bid. Expect Coach Noodlz2 to make the adjustments needed to put his team in the best position possible against a well coached Washington team led by @Jieret.
  13. Huge opportunity next week especially at home to beat a good Washington team!
  14. My laptop charger is missing so the articles have been slow, but I’ll have to manage to do both from my phone haha
  15. Cal Gets First Pac-12 Win Under Head Coach Noodlz BERKLEY, CA - Saturday’s matchup between California and Oregon State was not a game under national spotlight, but did hold implications for Cal’s new hire at the Head Coach position. The final was 20-10 as Cal goes enters a rainy Corvallis, OR. A rain must’ve been a factor for the low scoring game in a conference filled with high powered offenses. Noodlz is coming off of his third game of the season bringing the bears to a 4-4 overall record and a 2-4 record in the Pac-12. California’s offense hasn’t been anything special these last 3 games, but today Nick Ellison took control completing 16 passes on 29 attempts for 200 yards and a touchdown, while also carrying the ball 5 times for 36 yards. Adding to Ellison’s numbers on the ground, the redshirt senior speedster Zachary McFadden rushed for 102 yards on 18 carries while finding himself a spot in the end zone as well. The weather was definitely a deterrent to both team’s offenses. On the defensive side of the ball, Oregon State’s offense was held to 160 yards in the air and 99 yards on the ground. Redshirt senior Aaden Dent made the only turnover of the day for this Golden Beams defense. Aside from great secondary play, the front seven didn’t manage to make any impact plays on paper, with only one sack accounted for. This Golden Bears defense has to come to play next weekend against a much more balanced Washington Huskies offense. After suffering a 31-0 defeat against a great USC ball team before a bye week last week, the Golden Bears are 2-1 overall under Head Coach Noodlz. With an out of conference win against Buffalo accompanying this weekend’s victory, this Cal ball team has 4 games left in the season to achieve 2 wins to earn a bowl bid this season. After this week’s win Cal will most likely see themselves 10th in the Pac-12. With hopes of a Pac-12 championship out of the picture, the Golden Bears look to set their focus on Washington. Head Coach Noodlz has high expectations for this program in the future, but the season needs to be taken one week at a time if they wish to achieve a shot at a bowl this year.
