NWSB insider and Beavers blogger Jon Irwin gives his take on what went wrong in Oregon State’s stunning loss to the Eastern Washington Eagles.

While the offense put up great numbers on Saturday, the true problems came on D. Sean Mannion looked comfortable under center, Brandin Cooks looked good as well.
