We hardly knew thee, and no idea if you did anything worthwhile. See ya, dude.

Who’s up next?

And how does this affect GA — did he have a good relationship with TS? Could be interesting. 3rd AD for him and Tinkle in just a few years, which can’t make them happy.

    Pasted this in the previous thread but it’s more appropriate here. Canzano writes of GA’s desire to be here long term as well as TS’s relationship with GA, which didnt sound great.
    TS had some new ideas that he brought to the table, but I think having an AD on board that has our coach’s best interest in mind is very important this time around.

    Seems like this is Massari’s job to turn down as they’ll probably lose him permanently if he gets passed over twice for the position.

    Two other names that might come up:
    1. Dave Cohen – Ass’t AD at ASU, Oregon native, used to work for the Blazers
    2. Kurt Gulbrand – Ass’t AD at Colorado, OSU alum

        I’ll never forget meeting Doc in class in 2008 when he was recovering. We had debate class together and we were on the same debate team. He always gave me shit for being a blazer fan (he is a huge laker), didn’t really know who he was, or obviously would become at the time. Was such a joy to be around and always positive and funny. One of my fav beavs of all time, prolly just because of the personal connection, but I feel he will be around this program for a long time.

    BTW, I like Casey right where he is. However, he has done a heck of a fund raising job…having a winning team doesn’t hurt. Not sure that ability would transfer well to the AD slot.

    At least with Casey in this role, he could get away with just saying “Kiss the rings, b*#ch” and the donors would have throw some money at the program. But i still like him as coach as long as he’s willing to be a head coach.

        I’ll take a shot.
        Predicted scores for one game each week are used as tie breakers for those who correctly predicted the outcome for the same number of games.

        The numbers in parenthesis are the difference between the predicted score and the actual score for both the winner and loser of that one game (the tie breaker). Taken as an absolute, the total of the two numbers breaks the tie and determines the order of finish of the participants.

        EDIT-After reviewing this weeks results:
        This week 8 participants correctly predicted the outcome for 3 games, to break the tie the predicted scores for the tiebreaker game (OSU-ISU) were compared to the actual results. Scotty and whiskey remained tied since they both were 13 points off in predicting the score of the tiebreaker game.

      Eh, I like it in theory, but Nike has more cache (and cash), so there’s that, and then they’re in a better market position than Adidas, so if Adidas ever goes under they’d have to come crawling back to Nike.

      Nike is a real cancer to the sport, though.

        Its adidas or under armour (which is nike, kind of). Most don’t know this but In 1999 OSU was a test school for under armour cold gear base layers (tops and bottoms). It was the only thing they had at the time.
        The problem is even when both teams were contenders in the early and mid 2000’s, nike shit on the school in favor of UO, which is understandable kind of but there were never any offers to upgrade to a top tier with them, even after a couple of NC’s in baseball. I think even with there hq being here we should switch to something else or at least entertain other offers to force nikes hand. It would be a slap in the face to nike for us to leave and rightfully so. But first OSU needs to get relevant in football and keep up the pressure in basketball (men’s and women’s) and baseball.

          One of the things that pisses me off the most about the contract, look at the gear in local stores. You will see 6 different duck jerseys. Only one beaver. I understand that the ducks are the hot team currently, but I see just as many people wearing beaver gear, so why not make more options for us? Leaving money on the table…

        Adidas has been doing well lately, especially with their Adidas Originals brand. Heck, people were saying Nike was losing the Olympics to them and Under Armour (for example: http://solecollector.com/news/2016/08/nike-losing-adidas-under-armour-olympics). Kanye’s Yeezy brand has been helping them a TON, since people are addicted to anything Kanye endorses for some. I don’t get it personally, but if it means adidas can keep producing the soccer gear I love, then I’m okay with it.

        Nike does have a little more than 1.5 times the revenue of adidas ($30 billion a year to $18 billion), but as long as Europe exists, which is where adidas is HUGE, I don’t see them going under any time in the forseeable future. If any of the current college football uniform manufacturers go under, it’ll probably be Under Armor (yearly revenue of around $4 billion), but it’s very unlikely.

        A personal anecdote before I finish: I had the privilege of going to both the Nike and adidas employee stores in Beaverton and Portland respectively. When I was at the Nike store, they had a sizeable section devoted to everything Ducks.

        The Beavers? They had three or four individual shelves, and they were right next to Oklahoma State and all the other teams Nike sponsors.

        If OSU wants to be treated like they actually matter by their apparel company, they should ditch Nike when they can.

            Phil has officially retired, I don’t think we have a obligation to nike anymore. That’s why I was saying above OSU needs to play hardball once the contract is up. Make them lay some money down or make them look dumb for letting us go. I just think that if it’s important for nike to keep us then they should show how important we are.
            And adidas does have some shitty looking uniforms but money is money and I think adidas or under armour would pay some good money to walk into nikes back yard and steal a school away.

            The easiest credible source would be his charitable gift reporting over the years. He’s not given one red cent to OSU.

            And why should he? He has no use for design planners who use actual science.

            The most positive spin I’ve heard that was close to the truth is that PK acted as a mediator between Nike and Casey in order to get his endorsement deal bumped upward… to save OSU from itself and losing another coach… and that whole line of Duck bullshit.

            If that impending offer were to come from another Nike school, he would have had the same talks with them, upping his deal due to the fact the company was talking to the back to back reigning champion in his sport. And it would have been done with the new team. Losing that asset to an Adidas school would have been bad for their image, so they had to act before they lost him.

            Sorry Angry@angry, I shouldn’t have said “credible source” to make it sound like it was a donor, a beat writer, etc.

            Trust me, it’s fact. It was all Nike contract re-structuring to not lose (at the time) Nike’s best coach to an Adidas school.

    Under Armor has been muscling in on Nike’s territory lately. Seems like picking up Nike’s in state rival would be a logical move in order to keep that competition going, and OSU could bemefit from having a brand with a vested interest in seeing OSU succeed.

    On the negative side, this looks like typical OSU bumbling. They add Tinkle and Andersen (the latter kind of just falling to them), but they can’t stabilize the AD.

    The positive side might be that Andersen likely gets input into his new boss, and maybe that makes him likely to stay long enough to build a program.

    And sign a legitimate PAC QB or three….

      Because you know, if I don’t have a good AD that recruits like, I can’t land a legitimate QB or three?

      I understand you meant that if we get an AD that GA will like and we appease to his desires in an AD, then he’ll most likely stick with OSU longer and he’ll have more opportunities to get the program where he wants it.

      On the flip side to that, I don’t think the newest coach will have the largest impact with the new hire vs. Tinkle, Ruik, Casey, Softball coach, Track and Field coach, Wrestling coach, Gymnastics coach, etc. If they were smart, they would hear out every coach and make a collective hire, but ultimately, we finally have in the major sports, coaches who are all like minded with the same vision. That is the identity of the Athletic Department. Continuity and Development of the Student Athletes. That’s the basis of this hire. Hire someone with experience, yes, but also hire someone who knows how to raise funds from donors and knows how to get home and homes with big programs.That will keep anderson here for the long haul, getting to our recruiting pipelines like Florida, Georgia, Texas, etc.

    I am curious about people’s assessment of Kearseley’s performance last weekend. I didn’t watch the second half after the atrocious tackling on ISU’s 75-yard TD run.

    I have read that he graded out well, and only missed “two assignments.” I think someone on here posted that he missed two blitzes….how do people think he did?

    Is he capable of being a difference maker on the line this weekend?

      Excellent question, heads the list of a few that I think could spell the difference between a 13+ pt blowout and a “statement” upset.
      1-Will Kearsley lead an improved O-line which results in a better rushing game? Note that Yanni was listed this week as “probable” even though still at #1 on the depth chart.
      2-Will Hungalu play and do well, or will old man Willis come in and do very well?
      3-With Togiai out, will Lucas be more involved?
      4-Will Pierce get enough carries to make a difference? And, will Nall benefit from improved line play and return to CW like performance.
      Lots to watch (beyond Bolden, Villy, and Seth).

      EDIT: Took a minute to look it up, but here is what Woods said about Kearsley vs ISU: He jumped right in,” said… T.J. Woods, adding that Kearsley only had ONE missed assignment against Idaho State.

        I’m hoping some of the looks we saw from Collins the last 2 weeks, as a wildcat running threat, was just to set up future plays where he will be defended as a runner, leaving some receiving options wide open. Might be a good week to bring that type of play out. Hopefully he can make the throw

    This old tribune article specifically states that PK is paying towards Casey’s salary annually. And source apparently came from within the OSU AD. Not saying it’s correct, but this is partially why the rumor has been accepted as fact by many.

    http://portlandtribune.com/component/content/article?id=99900

    “A source inside the OSU athletic department has confirmed the rumor that’s been raging since last week – Knight, Super Duck, as he’s called around Eugene – played a big role in keeping Casey in Corvallis.
    Casey’s base pay at OSU has nearly doubled, and Knight, it is now known, is going to pay a sizable chunk of that raise, every single year Casey is coaching at Oregon State. And Knight stepped up to do it without being asked. He volunteered.”

    I was looking over boise state’s roster and we definitely have the size advantage. The question is can we use it to our advantage and run it down their throats? Also noticed they have lots of tight ends which which are pretty big that they probably use to create mismatches. Overall i think we can be competitive in this game if dg is accurate and hits his deep ball and the lines play well.

Noted Schnell’s comment on the “loss” of Stansbury and Goe’s pattern of downplaying the weakness of the roster MR left behind.
    Almost provoked a meltdown by Parker when he opined that, in reality, MR left Corvallis THREE times (once when he failed to play for the Beavs after high school).

      Not sure why you are getting down voted? A final play like that should either end in a TD ,fumble to the other team or the ball going out of bounds on a bad pitch out.. If you get tackled your not doing your job, but it’s hard to think like that when you are actually in the midst of the play.

      Found the following excerpt in Scott Barnes’ bio on the Pittsburgh website.
      http://www.pittsburghpanthers.com/genrel/scott_barnes_976219.html

      “…Barnes not only built significant momentum for Utah State Athletics but did so in a fiscally prudent way. USU was lauded as the most economically efficient athletic department in the nation in 2009 following a study done by Texas A&M’s Laboratory for the Study of Intercollegiate Athletics. In four subsequent studies, Utah State finished in the top 20 each year, including three times in the top six….”

      Being fiscally prudent would seem to be of interest to the OSU administration since the school doesn’t appear to have a lot of alumni who are high rollers.

      Which led me to wonder about the A&M study so I did some digging and came up with this..
