What was Riley thinking?

If the Huskies win this game — and they seem in pretty good position now — they may want to give a big thank you to Mike Riley.
OSU seemed on the verge of taking complete command of this game when Riley decided to go with backup QB Sean Canfield for two series in the second quarter. It must have been planned in the wake of Matt Moore’s disastrous game last week.
But it seemed like bad timing as Moore was on target early and the Beavers were dominating the game. Then Canfield threw that pick to Scott White to give UW a gift touchdown and the momentum had turned for good.
I think we see now why the Beavers are struggling despite possessing what seems to be an obvious amount of talent.
Yvenson Bernard has 106 yards on 19 carries, the first time UW has allowed a 100-yard rusher for a game since UCLA’s Chris Markey.
One bad omen for UW — Dashon Goldson is apparently out for the rest of the game with that ankle injury.
