NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars blogger Jordin Ereth gives us his take in his weekly What Went Wrong post There was a lot to love about the Cougars performance. They came out strong on their opening drive with a well-executed 75 yards leading to 7 points. Jordin’s player that needs improvement for WSU. Connor Halliday. He had received praise all pre season long for his improved decision making and accuracy. Unfortunately, it looks like Halliday is still struggling greatly.
NWSB Editor Bryant Knox breaks down the Oregon Ducks’ newest all-yellow uniform combination. If there’s anything that Chip Kelly, and now Mark Helfrich’s squad has become known for, it’s the uniforms. BCS bowl games and near-undefeated seasons have helped build the fan base, but there’s no denying that the uniforms have helped when it’s come to recruiting for college football season.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the penalties levied against the Oregon Ducks football program this morning. While there are other penalties such as public reprimand and censure and other minor sanctions that have more to do with using the same recruiting services, the big news on Wednesday morning was that the Ducks will still be bowl eligible. That’s right, Oregon fans, you can take a nice deep breath, exhale, and realize that your team is destined for greatness.

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the recent documents that were released that show the Oregon Ducks and NCAA have agreed that the Ducks committed major violations during Chip Kelly’s tenure. While I would never want a football program that I support to be involved in any sort of scandal, everything that Oregon has stated–as well as the NCAA–points to the fact that Oregon’s coaches were unaware that they were committing violations.
NWSB insider and Beavers blogger Jon Irwin reports on the job Craig Robinson’s done this year. Once again the OSU Beavers fell short in the Pac-12, and a change could be coming. But can the Beavers afford to cut ties with the notoriety Robinson has helped bring to the table?

NWSB Insider and Oregon State Beavers football blogger Jon Irwin breaks down the OSU vs. Stanford week 11 matchup.
