OSU vs BYU

Is Mike Riley sexy in the eyes of the Media?  The man is coaching this season and making it very difficult for me to not like him.  I am looking forward to seeing his bit on ESPN Gameday tomorrow.  He is a lock to look and act goofy which the national media loves, as does Corvallis.  I am preparing for "Neat," "growth," "love this team," and "fun."   As for the game, I see a defensive battle by both teams.  Neither offense will be able to move the ball.  Vaz is such a question mark, who knows what he will do.  It is nice to see ABC picking up the game too.

Has 3-0 hushed the critics?

You have to give credit to Riley and his staff thus far.  Clearly the 2 years of being down and distracted are over, but does starting 3-0 wipe the slate clean?  I would argue no it does not.  Riley took 2 years off and now decides to make changes and coach.  It is unreal how quickly the media and fans have forgotten about his miserable effort or lack there of, the past 2 years.  Everyone has fallen for the magical move Riley made by taking the team to In-n-Out and then tweeting pictures about it.  This was a cleaver plan knowing social media would pick up on it then ESPN and so on.  The media has acted like Mike Riley is the first coach ever to reward his team.  Good for him for pulling one on all of us or maybe it was Gundy's call.  Who knows and who really cares?  The point is, OSU is sexy now but all it takes is one crappy game/effort and the rankings are gonzo, ESPN will not be drinking the Beaver Juice, and once again OSU will become irrelevant.  If a statue of Riley in front of Reser is looming, then he better step on the throats of all the upcoming opponents and continue coaching.

Please continue sending me the emails.  They are pure comedy.
