I’ve been out of the loop the past few days, and I’m trying to catch up.

Just read this article. So do we know if Sitake was at the meeting or what happened? Need a follow up from Gina. The Navy guy is going to get the job, right?

Lady Beavs dismantled CSU Bakersfield today to move to 8-0.

Haven’t kept up right recruiting of late, so props to Beaverkman and Blazer on that. AB hit 3.7 million views this week. Keep sharing links to the site if you post a comment in the Oregonian so we get a constant influx of new blood. I get nothing out of this — it’s so our voice grows stronger when we need it (right now OSU is mostly in a good spot with all the major programs).

General thread, so anything goes.

    Somewhat of a “grudge match” Saturday when Beavs w/beavs goes against Tenn.; remember the home cookin’ the lady vols got last time around? I haven’t seen that aspect mentioned (yet) and am not surprised Rueck would be mum on the subject. Beavs should be favored, but Vols are not to be taken lightly. Should be a good game.

    Lots of talk about the noise level for the field trip game today, should be good for the gals as the season and, (hopefully) post season, unfolds.

      Is Beavs w/beavs what we’re calling the women who represent us?

      I’m just trying to keep up here, because I am the personification of poor timing with this stuff.

      If we need to refer to the genitalia of the women who represent our alma mater, I need to get that memo in order to make my many future references to such actually funny. I can’t just suppose that any reference to the genitalia of the women who represent my alma mater is funny just because it is.

      So… let me know. Send a memo. Which ones are good? And with what frequency can I use them and not get yelled at by a bunch of bitchy whiners?

        If I recall correctly, you can assign sore female genitalia to males, and that’s acceptable because it’s ballsy enough (see what I did there) to be politically incorrect enough to substitute for humor and wit. And you can definitely NOT care if its inappropriate because it is so….what it is…

        Or you could be talking about “Beavers without Borders,” which could refer to the bisexual nature of beavers with beavers…

        Frequency variable, indeterminate.

            I want people to express their own thoughts. I don’t want to hear talking points that I hear for years on end. If you express failed ideas that were and are still ideals of certain groups, I will call you out for saying verbatim the failed talking points of that certain group. I don’t care if that group is defunct. You’re iterating their stuff. Stop doing that.

            My counter to you is your insistence on a consumer capitalist society, though I know you abhor such. You abhor such for good reason, but you try to argue within the language of such. It does not follow. Break away from that thought first. Then attack it.

          I just want to start referring to the separate groups as Beavs w/beavs or Beavs w/dicks, pricks, members, tools, organs, cocks, whangs, knobs, choppers, plonkers, dongs, winkles, joysticks, peckers, John Thomases, weenies, tadgers, schlongs, pizzles or willies (willys).

          I vote for either Beavs w/cocks or Beavs w/dongs… because you all know I’m all for efficiency in language. If I’m going to shorten Beavs into Beavs w/*something*, I want it to be clear and short.

        For the record, Courtney Barnett’s album is about 2.4 songs deep. One of those songs is awesome. But that leaves a wake of sadness while trying to find the remainder of the effort.

        But by all means, let’s make that the very high bar we should expect for the very best album of the year.

        Why not?

          He’s been building and refining for a few years now. He has some hits and misses. But this album is complete and honest and fun… and really clean, even if intended to be otherwise. There are about seven solid tunes on the front end.

          The lead in to Wobbly is just amazing. I’ve not heard someone take on an intro quite that way before.

          Edit: And every song is quotable. I don’t run into that very much… except for Tip of a Match. That one is muddy and out of place. It’s a throwaway nod to the hangers-on who remember the old stuff with nostalgia. And it kinda sucks where it is because Ordinary Life is simply brilliant.

            Is it? I’ve looked back at past posts and have seen some weird stuff nobody has claimed. What I am doing now does not match that lunacy. I have always posted music as an interlude. If this is anything more than that, then I apologize on my part. But some of that has to be shared with the opposition to such.

            angry, have you listened to this album?

            I have to tell you my bias. I listened to the first two songs about 20 times before I went and listened to the rest of what I think is a gem. I want to rationalize Tip of a Match as an angry, muddy song where one should be in relation to the album itself… hoping it will grow on me and be the completion of my love for the album as a whole.

            What do you hear here?

            I really liked this record. I hear a hybrid of 1950s early rock and roll, a little jazz, and a little indie (slack feel on some songs), punk (distorted vocal, etc). It’s a little too “dandy” sounding for my taste. I wish it was more raw, wish it had more soul/power to it. His vocal is nasal, which is distracting, but not a completely deal breaker. Would like some more raucous sounds. I’d give it a 5/5 if it had more power and/or soul — the white guys trying to doo wop backing vocals on some of these songs is funny. I give it a solid 3.5 or 4 because of the good melodies, feel, and it’s fun.

            It suffers from some technical problems, too. Too much limiting (i.e. extreme compression to create volume, which just creates distortion and artifacts to my ear), too, which is a technical engineering problem. Rick Ruben started that and it’s only gotten worse. I literally had to turn the record down to 2 to listen to it at a comfortable level. The use of reverb on the vocal is odd, too. At times it’s too much and at times too little, and they seem opposite of how it should be. Some of the mixing is questionable, but mixing is always a subjective/taste issue so can’t harp on that too much.

            Cool record.

          Yeah… I caught some of those vocal modulations out of place. They were appropriate for many songs, but they continued them into some of the back side where it was obvious they were trying to strip it down. And the sax sometimes seems patronizing. But then it goes discordant and ends with a purpose. So I excuse it.

          It’s just a well rounded album. I like listening to it and find new fun every time.

He told me he shared the account with a few friends, so I figured it’s them all logging in, but now that he got a new computer from the former “hack”, I wonder if those friends are real or any of the story is real. Jack was normal for about a week after the computer hack, but now it seems exactly back to the way it was before. Fool me once?

            What I don’t get is that he called the radio show and sounded normal, and he’ll go through periods on here where he’s normal. Then at 2am some nights there will be rants that you need the Rosetta Stone to decipher. Sorry Jack, but we have to keep it real, and that’s reality.

    Is BYU really going to run option football with Niumatalolo? I’m surprised that Robert Anae bolted for Virginia with Bronco, I thought he would be the successor and BYU could have had him for fairly cheap.

    I also read something to the effect that Niumatalolo would be giving up a very generous high six figure lifetime pension that vests after 10 years at Navy (who knows if that is accurate?). If BYU wants him, it sounds like they will have to pay considerably more than they did for Bronco. I am wondering if the reports about Sitake not being that impressed with the interview have to do with what BYU was offering salary-wise given his generous coordinator compensation?

    Hoping Sitake stays for the continuity of the OSU program, but who knows? Sounds like it’s down to two candidates and BYU really wants Niumatalolo. Maybe Sitake is also annoyed at being Plan B?

    We should start a prediction list of de-commits. There are always a few.
    I also hope Sitake stays, simply for the continuity of message and recruiting. One of the benefits of not being in a bowl is getting a jump on the ’17 class. Diminished if GA is in hunting for a DC.

            He didn’t look good on the (limited) film at the time, either. Then bombed on National TV. He picked it up since and looks like he tamed those high throws/release point issues, so now I’m higher on him. As data changes and more info comes in, opinions change. Maybe I judged him too fast. I’m still not entirely sure on Morgan but more hopeful.

        If a guy like Shaun Alexander (way more TDs, an MVP, and a SB appearance with only a few less yards) gets left out than no way is Jackson a HOF. If Alexander gets in (and IMO he should but don’t think he will); I might change my position.

        Jackson was very very good but I think several backs that aren’t in (or likely won’t get in) have better resumes.

          Jackson’s a “could’a” player, though no fault of his own. Imagine him with a QB and an O-Line such as Emmit Smith had….then he’d have put up the TDs….good receiver too.

          I think it would be great if he ended up having a meaningful contribution in NE, and it doesn’t hurt my feelings that his opportunity comes at the expense of a punk like Blount.

          Shaun Alexander wasn’t as good. He was great that MVP year, but an award like that is a team effort and shouldn’t propel a guy into the HOF. Jackson was a better player on worse teams. Alexander probably had a little more speed. I’d put it this way: if Bettis is in, Jackson should be in. Bettis was the worst HOF back I have ever seen and a total “accumulator” (e.g. the Eddie Murray of football). Didn’t he average under 4 for his career? That just does not belong in any HOF.

            Couldn’t disagree more on Alexander, he gets lots of hate because he went out of bounds but the guy was a great RB. And was out of this world in 2005 when he won MVP. The revisionist history on Alexander is what hurts him. Shaun was much better than he is given credit for. Maybe Jackson would have been better had he been in Seattle but he wasn’t so its pure speculation.

            I agree. SA was great for the two or three years he was great. And I men to say great. He carried that team to potential greatness. He just didn’t get there. And he wasn’t a consistent back in terms of injury and production.

            I think that may have been the beginning of NFL coaches looking at the position as a puzzle piece. Obviously, you want the best you can get. But the RB position is so interchangeable right now.

            Yeah I mean if that’s the standard Terrell Davis should be in the HOF. He was more dominant than Alexander, has a Superbowl MVP and regular season MVP, much significantly higher YPC.

            Both of those guys were very good backs, but part of making the HOF is playing long enough to put up numbers. You can’t extrapolate. On the flipside, though, you get guys like Bettis who accumulate numbers without ever dominating. The HOFers lie in between those two extremes. Better should not be a HOF, Alexander shouldn’t, Davis shouldn’t…Jackson is right on the fence.

            Definitely sounds like a biased Seahawk fan.

        I believe SJax is a HOFer. The dude had nobody. He had no QB. He had no OL. I can’t remember any WR or TE names on that black hole of a team… except for him.

        When you played them, you played him. And he still beat you the hell up. Are you going to blame him for not getting in the end zone after carrying the team down the field so many times? What the hell else was that team going to do except give it to him and hope his talents got them there?

        It’s a BS argument. That man is a HOFer just for his ability to be something so out of place that nobody else could have done what he did. AD would have run rampant for two years then spent the next six years on and off with injuries and not be the HOFer he is now.

        Another RB who has been good to great but didn’t get his due is Jonathan Stewart. That man was good as a kid and the best Nikegon ever had. But it takes an undefeated Carolina team without Williams to recognize that? He suffered injuries, but would they have happened if he was the man? Now he doesn’t have the numbers to back up a HOFer claim. But SJax does have the numbers. How are you supposed to deny the numbers for one but not the other?

          There will be no more RB HOFers besides AD and maybe Forte if the number crunchers rationalize his numbers enough to make them HOFer worthy. I saw there was a documentary about Forte out there now.

          Where is the love for SJax? The man is a treasure. He is kind and good and hard-working. And he produced big time for a long time where boys dreamed. Where is his documentary?

            I am a Seahawks fan but trust me, that is not the reason. Most Seahawks fans can’t stand Alexander for the same reasons and they are just as wrong. Alexander is the most underrated back of his generation. And that analysis would be the same rather I was a Hawks fan or not.

            I think Alexander deserves the HOF more than Bettis. Terrell Davis deserves it more than Bettis. The Bus in the HOF is just hilarious.

            For reverence, Jackson has more total yards than Bettis on much much worse teams. Bettis has a laughable 3.9 YPC. Does any other HOF RB have a YPC under 4? I doubt it…

            Davis was better than Alexander but the stats do matter and Davis didn’t accumulate enough in my opinion. I love how just because you disagree you claim “bias”

            You do understand that is possible to simply disagree right?

            Alexander has 100 TDs something only 8 backs have done, set the record for most rushing TDs in one season (later broken but still held an NFL record). He was a league MVP and led his team to a Super Bowl.

            That is a hall of famer in my book.

            You are welcome to a different opinion but to claim the belief is based on bias only is bullshit. Its a very justified position. I didn’t even say Jackson wasn’t a Hall of Famer, I said that if Alexander isn’t than Jackson isn’t and totally stand by that. Bettis has nothing to do with the conversation.

            One great season doesn’t make a HOF career. Roger Maris isn’t in the baseball HOF.

            Alexander was very good. As I said, he deserves the HOF more than Bettis. Once Bettis is the benchmark, Davis, Alexander, and Jackson should all get in (by their standards). HOF lowered the benchmark with that one, so maybe the other 3 all deserve it.

            He wouldn’t be in my HOF, though. I have high standards and look at the body of work.

            I agree. But that’s what I’m putting out there as counterpoint. Alexander didn’t get the numbers but had those couple years. SJax has the numbers but did it as an unknown on a bad team. Bettis gets the same treatment if he stays on the Rams. He doesn’t get to be who he was if he didn’t go to Pittsburgh.

            To be fair, Marshall was no slouch.

            But the point is that production does count. SJax was run through a meat grinder and did better than all but about 15 RBs in the history of the league. And many of them have no idea what a meat grinder looks like.

    Loving the focus on JUCO guys, would really like a JUCO QB but seems like that won’t happen. Happy to get Moran in early but still hoping they are able to redshirt him. Unlike many I am not as down on Collins, think he needed a redshirt year and with another spring and fall he can improve. Still expect Garrettson to start. Would really like more competition at that position though (JUCO or 5th year guy).

      How might Andersen approach a Sitake departure? Is he likely to promote from within?

      If he were to bring in new blood from the outside to replace Sitake, it might help address the issue you raise. Maybe he finds a capable D coordinator who has recruiting strengths that also diversifies OSU’s effective recruiting geography.

      That entire Q&A in the press conference, and she’s the only media to ask anything about Sitake.
      Then she checks to see if he’s in his office. Seems like pretty standard stuff for someone in the media to try to get to the bottom of that story.

      Is she the only media member with the balls to ask GA the tough(or not so tough) questions? I get the impression that he may not love it, but at least respects her work. Maybe the rest are all too scared to make him upset?

    4 hours ago Handsome tweeted that in 2 hours he’d announce which school he’d be going to.

    In his tweet yesterday he listed BYU, OSU, Utah and BSU in that order so maybe he’s waiting to see who BYU’s head coach is going to be. https://twitter.com/handsometanielu

    So it might not be that he wants to be where Sitake is but perhaps it’s more of a case where if they hire somebody like Pettybonehead Handsome would rather play somewhere else.

    No offense to OUR Pettybonehead but after all you did choose that handle.

      I wonder if this is b/c he didn’t like Baldwin or he thinks Baldwin is a better asset somewhere else? Is two coordinators a good thing? This entire situation is a disaster right now. Baldwin’s offense put up huge numbers, so why not give him a chance once he has better personnel? The problem this year was the QB. Some dumb calls for sure but part of that could have been compromising for lack of talent. I think is pretty knee jerk by GA.

Losing coaches, moving coaches around, constantly moving players around…I assume it will settle down at some point and stability will set it, but they need that to happen fast.

    You don’t bring in an offensive consultant if you’re satisfied with your OC. He probably od’ed on diet Pepsi and they decided this was best for his health.

    Also, I wonder if the fact that has shown zero ability to recruit has anything to do with it? There was almost no consistency in play calling week to week either.

    So suddenly beavers potentially losing all coaches? Can’t imagine this was part of GAs plan a year ago.
