The Beavers Drivers to Success

From watching the Mike Riley-coached teams the last few years there are a few things that seem to be predictors of how the teams will do from season to season.

1. Experience or poise at QB

2. Cornerbacks

3. Offensive line

Generally if the Beavs have one of these three things very strong, then they will be a bowl team. If they have two, then they're pretty good. Three and they will have a shot at the Rose Bowl.

This means that every 2-3 years we will be a work in progress at QB. So those will likely be down years.

When Canfield and Moevao we being broken in we were lucky because the defense was great and the running game had a wrinkle that couldn't be stopped called the Fly Sweep. 2 of 3 and we were pretty good.

The last two years the CBs have been experienced, we had two poised QBs, and the running game was strong. Rose Bowl shot.

This season? We may have 0 of 3.

The good news? Next year I think we will have 2 of 3. Katz will be experienced and better and I think the O-line will be a priority and be much better. The only question for me is how fast they can re-make the defense.
