Not concernced about the Beavers

. Having been exposed to far to much info about the Beavers than I care to ingest I'll simply say your theory doesn't hold water based on recent history. You're claim is, due to some key losses the Beavers will go backwards. Fortunately for the Beavs and unfortunately for the Cougs the Beavers have suffered larger attrition rates the past 3-4 seasons and managed quite well. Losing a starting DE and MLB is a set back no doubt about it, but it's not out of the realm of business as usual for Mike Riley and I would be surprised if the Beavers don't put together one of the top defenses in the conference this year. The other losses you mention don't even look
to be losses by season start. Minor injuries that should be healed in fall camp. I'll give you replacing the starting QB is somewhat of a wild card and until a some games are under the belt we can't really say how that will go. Luck(Stanford) and Foles (sp Arizona) showed last year a rookie can get the job done in the PAC-10 given the proper supporting cast. Katz or Lalich will have some impressive supporting cast members come next fall. WR James Rodgers, RB Jacquizz Rodgers, TE Joe Halahuni, and Wheaton, Bishop, Nichols, and ?, sharing time at the other receive positions. The O-line was green last year, this year they've got some experience, improved skills, increased weight and strength and the injuries should all be healed by kickoff. I hope the Cougs find success this year, but I wouldn't hold my breath expecting the Beavers under Mike Riley to regress one bit at all.
