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. OSU entered the 2013 season coming off a huge turnaround in 2012, but have already starting things off on the wrong foot. 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.

Lorenzo Romar Huskies Coach

NWSB Insider and UW hoops writer Clinton Bell brings us the question of “is coach Romar on the hot seat?” Honestly this all depends on how sympathetic the AD wants to be, as Romar has had to go through the motions this year without two of his best scorers from last year in Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten.

Clinton thinks that Romar’s day’s are limited, and if he doesn’t get shown the door after this season, he will be very soon.

Aziz N’Diaye is another overachiever.
