Oregon State uniforms were all orange top to bottom and hideous

Oregon State football orange

Oregon State went with an all-orange uniform selection for Friday’s home game against Pac-12 opponent USC, and their duds were hideous. They were wearing orange from head-to-toe — cleats, pants, jerseys, gloves and helmets were all orange. It was terrible.

The uniforms led to jokes cracked everywhere. One of the best descriptions I saw came from someone who said the Beavers were going with their traffic cone look.

The all-orange unis were actually part of an entire “orange out” the Beavers program had for the nationally-televised game.

I’ve ripped on Oregon’s uniforms in the past, but they’re nothing compared to what Oregon State had on. Yikes.

Oregon State had In-N-Out Burger delivered to airport after Cal win

Mike Riley In n Out

Mike Riley really just loves his In-N-Out Burger. Last year the Oregon State football coach had his team stop off at the In-N-Out by LAX following their win in SoCal against UCLA. On Saturday he expedited the process and had the In-N-Out delivered to the airport following the Beavers’ 49-17 win at Cal in Berkeley.

According to OregonLive.com, Riley’s staff worked it out to have a few hundred burgers delivered to the team at the airport to save time as they traveled back to Corvallis after the game.

Oregon State stops at In-N-Out Burger after beating UCLA

Oregon State celebrated its 27-20 win over UCLA in Pasadena, Calif., on Saturday in an awesome way. Coach Mike Riley delayed the team’s charter flight home to treat his players to In-N-Out Burger.

In-N-Out is a fast-food hamburger chain that originated in Southern California and only has restaurants in California, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, and Texas. Since they aren’t found in Oregon, Riley figured that would be a nice way to reward his players:

The players seemed to appreciate the reward. Defensive tackle Castro Masaniai tweeted the following:

As awesome as this gesture was, it’s not exactly an original idea — we’ve seen another Pac-12 school do something similar.

Riley may have gotten the idea to stop off at the restaurant from UCLA, which used In-N-Out logos on their play cards during the game:

Oregon State’s Jordan Poyer Has Car Keyed by Fan After BYU Loss

Oregon State has been a major disappointment this season and their fans have every right to be upset. That being said, there is no place in sports for the idiocy that took place over the weekend after the Beavers 38-28 loss to BYU.  Oregon State is 1-5 and off to its worst start in 15 years, but that doesn’t give fans an excuse to go around vandalizing a player’s personal property.  According to The Oregonian, some moronic fan decided to key cornerback Jordan Poyer’s car after the loss and leave a note on the windshield that read “(expletive) you win a game.”

People like the coward that did this and the Auburn tree poisoner must have serious mental issues.  Poyer actually recorded a 55-yard pick six in Saturday’s game and was one of the lone bright spots for the Beavers, but that’s beside the point.  It doesn’t matter if he was personally responsible for all 38 of the Cougars points, scratching a player’s car over a game is completely uncalled for.

Poyer took to Twttier after the game and wrote, “To whoever keyed my car last night saying ‘(expletive) you win a game’ I hope you’re feeling better about yourself.”  Oregon State head coach Mike Riley said “it’s hard to explain behavior like that” but also noted that it was not surprising to him.  Sadly, I have to agree.

Unfortunately, some fans can’t grasp the fact that at the end of the day it truly is just a game.

Chest bump to Dr. Saturday for the disappointing story of d-baggery.

Oregon State Takes it to the Next Level to Prep for Boise State

What’s it going to take for No. 24 Oregon State to knock off No. 3 Boise State?  Plenty of creative plays, a solid game on both sides of the ball, protection of the football, and about 180 gallons of blue paint.  Now that’s what I call committment.

I’ve always wondered how the obnoxious blue color of Boise State’s field doesn’t drive the players nuts when it gives me a pounding dome ache.  Apparently Oregon State head coach Mike Riley considers it an obstacle, as he’s decided to paint the Oregon State practice field blue.   If this doesn’t help the Beavers knock off the Broncos — a team that we don’t think is worthy of a shot at the BCS championship — I’m not sure what will.

Jacquizz and James Rodgers Train with Cirque De Soleil in Las Vegas

Considering I had 30 out of 34 possible points on Oregon State in my bowl games confidence pool (argg!!!) about the only thing good to come from this massacre was seeing this hilarious video of Jacquizz and James Rodgers training with Cirque de Soleil. See, Oregon State played BYU in the Las Vegas Bowl, and apparently the brothers had a private training session. They sure got the routine down as you can tell:

You think they would have done all that had they known it was going to show up on ESPN? As one YouTube commenter noted, they looked like teletubbies on acid. I couldn’t have said it better myself. Oh yeah, while I’m on the subject, a special shout out goes to ‘Quizz for fumbling on a lateral from Sean Canfield and letting BYU recover and return it for a score. It was Jacquizz’s first fumble in like 600 touches and it happened in the one game I needed them to win. Nice going, Beavers.

Oregon State Fan Not Happy About Losing the Civil War

I thought I had seen bad fan reactions to losses before but this one might rank at the top. The Civil War by itself creates plenty of bad blood, but when there’s a Rose Bowl berth on the line you’re talking about livelihoods at stake. In case you doubted the intensity of the rivalry between Oregon and Oregon State, check out this Beavers fan’s reaction to losing to the Ducks on Thursday night (warning: language, content is strong).

Thanks to Jimmy at SI Extra Mustard for including that video on Hot Clicks. One of the YouTube commenters nailed in saying “he looks like the baby of andy roddick and sean william scott.” Funny, I was thinking the exact same thing. How I love rivalries.
