Originally this thread was about Scott Barnes. Now we’re hearing he’s not coming.

——————–

What do we know about this guy? Apparently he is the new AD, per this source.

They mention he’s from the PNW and was at Utah State (guess he knows GA well). Is he actually good? What evidence is there?

      It was a pretty good start! Got a beast for the DL that ranked last in the league stats, beating out the SEC for his plege. Got huge Top 100 OL who should be able to come in and contribute immediately. Another Top 50 JC QB who should help a team that played three of them last season. Got two outstanding WR’s who will be here for Spring ball. One a 4star tall wideout 6’3″ that will bring size and physicality we have been desperate for. The other one is a 3star playmaker who will could be that big play athlete that we need now that Bolden has finally moved on. So that is good start.

      Now we didn’t get everybody we wanted, most notably a DB with experience. It sounds like we are still efforting for one to bring in. Lost out on the SEC to the ones we wanted, and one to the Big12. That was disappointing.

      We still have the opportunity to sign a few more. The two notables are OL Jordan Agsaiva who is a Top 50 recruit, and sounds like he will make a decision between TCU and us within a few weeks. The other is George Moore who had been committed to WSU and choose to not sign with them today (so that is a win), but he probably won’t sign for awhile stating he wants more time to make a decision. He was recently offered by Purdue and has many programs after him. Get one of those it would be great, get both and its gravy.

      Then there could be the DB replacement I noted earlier. Good, good start. Could’ve been and still could be great.

      If this strategy was produced during his tenure and published with his approval, his employer should consider him responsible for it. How he claims credit, and distributes that credit, I don’t know. I just wanted to find a recent example of his work that should demonstrate how he thinks and how he prioritizes.

      There is the chance that this product speaks more of the longer-tenured AD staff than Barnes himself.

    OT, Andersen’s “breakdown” of the players. What he says about Luton, combined with the impressive WR prospects and Andersen’s willingness to play young players, portends well for the offense. I hope there is genuine competition at the QB spot and McM gets a fair chance to earn it.

    “As you go through the league, identify the league and understand the league, you have to get the ball downfield. I think he brings a component that we struggled with a year ago, as far as getting the ball downfield consistently. And it’s not just the quarterback, like I say all the time, it’s the offense.”

    “The tweaks within the offense that we are looking to have as we move through this next offseason… it’s important that we stretch the field vertically and horizontally….

    He’s a big, tall physical kid that will come in here – and he runs pretty well too, he’s not going to just stand there and get drilled. Again, creating competition – and we’ve got a lot of quality competition at that position – but we need to have that in the Pac-12…..

    On possible change of offense with Luton:

    “There needs to be a shift… and I’m not going to say a shift in the identity of the offense. We want to be known as a tough, physical, aggressive offense, no doubt, but we want to be able to do some things…

    “Those are going to be tweaks that are easy to see visually before you snap the ball, but within the core of the offense there will be some adjustments and tweaks through personnel, because we expect to make more plays.””

      Its definitely important that McM gets a (well earned) legitimate shot to compete for that starting spot. It’s also important that people here accept that, if McM loses the starting gig to Luton in said competition, it isn’t some big coaching conspiracy to keep him off the field. McM runs better no doubt but if Luton is a better passer then that’s what the offense needs more. Nall and Pierce are plenty effective running the ball and I’d rather have a higher ceiling in the passing attack as well as a QB that won’t run around and take hits. McM seems to prove me wrong at every turn though so it will be interesting to see how it plays out

        “He’s another kid that hung in the process very well. His coach was awesome, longtime coach – straight-shooter. When his kids commit, he buckles them down pretty tight as long as he feels good about where they’re committed to, and he did.”

        “Jake has those Northwest ties, which was huge for us in this case. A lot of people wanted to come in and all-of-the-sudden be involved, but they didn’t have a chance to get in, because this is where he felt he fit.”

        I had expected other programs to make offers and try to poach Luton and was actually a little concerned when nobody even tried. GA implies that they tried but got shut down before it even got to that point. Interesting.

    OT – Mizell with a summary of what sounds like a pretty good presser content-wise:

    “The Beavers will start “spring” practice on Feb. 18, with the spring game set for March 18. This is significantly earlier than normal, even compared to when they started in early March in Andersen’s first season. But this timing, the coach said, allows for a six-week winter conditioning program beginning Jan. 9, then a nine-week program for the entire spring quarter. This also frees coaches up for recruiting during the important spring evaluation period in April and May. ”

    This is an interesting change and we’ll see if it pays off in recruiting?

    “Andersen also alluded that another Beavers assistant could soon be leaving for a promotion with another program.

    “I suspect that there will be at least one more opportunity that comes to someone on our staff very, very soon that is well-deserved, too,” Andersen said. “We’ll see where the dust settles. I’m in support of the coaches, as long as they’re moving forward. If they move sideways, then I’m not in support of them. Brent (taking the San Jose State job)? I’m all in for that one.”

      According to the published Academic Calendar, “…a nine-week program for the entire spring quarter.” is a bit misleading. Classes start 1-9-17 and end 3-17-17 with finals the following week.
      So, the spring game on 3-18 is at the beginning of finals week.
      Perhaps it would be better to have said, “spring practice will take place entirely within a single academic term”……the Winter (not Spring) term, BTW.

      Aside from the possible recruiting advantage, it may be worthwhile to make this move to avoid having practice span an entire finals week and the first week of the following term.

      Sounded to me like Jake has his head on straight. He is into the outdoors and the tough guy image GA is selling. Wants to have a way to stay around the game when he can no longer play, thus the thought of getting into sports psychology.
      He wasn’t aware of GA’s dogs, has a labradoodle of his own ………don’t suppose that disqualifies him.

      BTW, I noticed Jake is listed at 6’6″, that is 5″ taller than McM if the published info can be believed.

      Incorrect… well… incorrect in this sense…
      https://twitter.com/ChrisKarpman/status/809145868351717376

      If there was some other by-law, so be it. But what he posts right there explains in detail that there are no restrictions once a grant-in-aid is signed (assuming that was done). He’s irresponsible for not including 13.10.1, as there is an exception to 13.10.3 in that clause. But why the hell does he include 13.10.2.8? It has nothing to do with 13.10.3, and it has zero context without also posting 13.10.2 (and possibly 13.10.2.1-7).

      So was he correct that there may have been a violation? That’s not what he said. He wrongly interpreted something that needed no interpretation, and he posted it for everyone to see.

      Last year, Mike Riley himself had a couple PSAs with grants-in-aid signed, and he was on the recruiting trail talking about them and what they can bring to the bugeaters and all that by name. And he was completely within his right to do that. He was name-dropping to the media trying to re-recruit these kids because NU was not guaranteed their fealty without the NLIs being signed. The rule doesn’t say the kid has to first officially graduate before the school can do and say whatever the hell it wants to do or say with the kid. It says finances and an acceptance of enrollment must be set… then the school can do and say whatever the hell it wants to do or say with the kid.

      There is now a whiny reality of which I was unaware previously… or thought was just whiny noise. So maybe “there are no restrictions” means something different now than when it was written. But that’s as close as I get to yielding to that post.

      Sounds like it was handled. And the players involved didn’t like the end result and have staged a revolt. Sound familiar???

      While none of us were there and know exactly what took place, even if a crime was not committed, the players may have violated a team code of conduct. Thus the reason for the suspension AFTER the university investigation was complete.

            Film shows a lucid young lady who is laughing and at no time objects to young men plowing her (this is what’s being reported). From another article I read a few days ago, only 4 or 5 of the 10 players actually fucked her. The school suspended them before they had a title IX hearing, which is why the team is boycotting. It seems like this is similar to the Yale Basketball player from last year. He had consensual sex with a young lady who later decided she didn’t want to have sex with him and claimed she was raped after the fact. That kid was cleared by police but the school threw him out.

        From the USA Today report as printed in the Des Moines Register linked above:

        According to police records released Wednesday, the woman told police she was drunk when she was sexually assaulted in Djam’s apartment by several men, including some of the suspended players. She said her sexual contact with two men may have been consensual, but her contact with four of them was not. Several players told police it was consensual.

      Threaten to pull their scholarships and see how they react. Will 120 players really walk? I doubt it.

      Would sure make recruiting tough though! Imagine having to sign not 15-25 players or whatever the normal range is, and instead having to sign several tens of players.

      Who would Holiday Bowl invite as a replacement? They ought to start sending out preliminary invites.

      Pete is a really shitty coach. I know his record doesn’t back that up, but he’s a dickhead who puts his players in harm’s way often for his own ego, and then he passes/plays soft in running situations. Weak.

        It seems to me his biggest problem has been not effectively addressing the offensive line. Maybe they’ve tried and had injury problems (?), but they’re a good offensive line away from being a multi-year powerhouse. Their D keeps them in games, but their offense seems to have fits and starts, Wilson starts playing sandlot ball and can have hot streaks, but it’d be so much easier and efficient if they addressed the line.

          The guy who said Gary Andersen should be fired is now questioning my sanity. Good one.

          Anyway, coaches who run up the score for ego are putting players in harms way, and he does it every chance he gets, and has since USC.

          He’s also passive/weak. E.g. Last night everyone in the world knowing he should have handed the ball to Rawls for a 1 yard score, yet he passes (almost INT) and hands it to a slow FB. It’s his pattern since USC. He had Lynch, who bailed him out a lot. Jim Harbaugh, Gary Andersen (true tough coaches) are giving the RB the ball there, maybe 3 times.

          At USC he also cheated then bailed on the team.

          I know he has a great record and already acknowledged that, but I still think he’s shitty. You are just biased and love him — probably a seahawk fan. And I doubt you felt like that when he was at USC.

            You have no idea how I felt when he was at USC (hint: rooted for USC to represent the PAC well whenever not playing OSU and thought he was great there too)….I love Pete’s coaching style and have since he was at USC. Build people up instead of tearing them down, that is the best way to do things in my view.

            Oh gee, he isn’t tough because he sometimes passes the ball on the 1 yard line like 95% of the other coaches in the world (including Jim Harbaugh and Andersen BTW). You got me on that one.

            Your opinion seems to come from hatred for USC.

            And Andersen hasn’t proved anything yet. And to be clear (despite your nonsense), I never said he should be fired now, I said we didn’t need to give him 4 years. Big difference. And I admitted I overreacted weeks ago. I have the ability to change my view/admit I was wrong when more evidence is presented.

            Shitty coaches don’t have the success he has had (in college or the NFL). Sorry but you are wrong.

            And if you think he “runs up the score” in Seattle you clearly haven’t watched many games. The biggest gripe most Seahawks fans have is that he takes the foot off the gas too soon and every game is closer than it needs to be. Running up the score? You clearly haven’t ever actually watched a Seahawks game before last night.

            You’re conflating your argument about putting players in harm’s way (which may or may not have validity) with his overall coaching ability, where the ends don’t justify the means but do confirm that a majority of them are successful.

            When it comes to running up the score, one of the coaches mentioned said to another mentioned, “What’s your deal?”

            It happens sometimes.

            Is it petty? Maybe? Maybe Carroll saw an opportunity to run that experiment with the P he wanted to run without it costing him a game, and now he has the info he needs. Maybe he doesn’t like Jim Fassel and decided to take it out on his son. Maybe he thinks he has some point differentials to make up for tie-break situations because of how he lost last week.

            Who knows? What’s important to note from last night is that Seattle’s unis were absolutely shiny-butt-ugly.

            For sure his results speak for themselves. The guy won two Nattys and Super Bowl. So I know criticizing him will sound stupid.

            I saw him as Jets coach as a kid, and he was horrible when he didn’t have the recruiting or franchise advantages he has now. I view him as a shady guy who cheated at USC, lucked into Lynch/Sherman (and a great owner) in Seattle, and just isn’t that good but keeps landing in good spots. Like I’d love to see him rebuild an awful program or franchise. The one time I saw him in that situation, with the Jets, he was terrible. “Players coach who was soft” was the criticism in all the NY papers. Then seeing him cheat to victory at USC didn’t help him in my eyes. Sure, I’m biased from all that and just don’t like the guy. If he went into a job that was actually difficult and dominated I’d then have respect for him as a coach.

            We need a sociological term for this kind of dumb and lazy retort. It’s not Newton’s Third, because while equally dumb, it’s not opposite. It’s just the same laziness, too dumb to know any different.

            And once we decide upon that term, we can share it with the masses to make hasty and really shallow generalizations with it.

            Note: For best results, the primary terminology can not contain a word that begins with a w. Remember that the masses aren’t moved by something hard to say. Acronyms with a w in them are the height of inefficiency, therefore, the masses might get bored halfway through the pronunciation of the letter w and wonder if they’re actually saving any energy or time. An easy point of reference is how any crime “drama” on TV will never verbally use the short-hand acronym GSW for gun shot wound because it would take two extra syllables to say it.

            Oh… and it can’t be an acronym that makes me think about St. John’s wort either. Along those lines, no fun league would also not work. I think you get the idea.

Maybe something clicks when Tres is back, but the huge recruiting misses with Dew and Stacy have set the team back. Also, STj is getting exposed on defense without GP-2 and Duvivier out there. I can’t believe we are looking at a 6 or 7 win season if they get a couple of upsets in league play.

            I thought this season could go either way with Payton leaving and not having a defender like that to step in…it went the wrong way. So I’m not overly surprised. Maybe a little that they’re losing OOC. I think Tinkle will be good moving forward, so long as his heart is still in it and his son is in the program. Seasons like this are hard on coaches, tho. A little worried he’s going to lose the passion. I haven’t watched the games. Are his pits still sweaty? Does he have the CR sour puss face? If his pits are sweaty he’s into it.

            WT seems pretty calm to me compared to the previous two seasons, almost an “is what it is” demeanor.. Others may have a different opinion. You can’t see him on TV at the home games anymore (I don’t like the new camera angle).

            I thought it was weird that he interviewed for Stanford. I can understand needing a ego stroke, but was he really going to leave Tres or take him with? I think it’s a little unusual with WT because the best players are going to be sons of coaches for the next few years. I think he needs to be judged on the other players he recruits into the program over time.

            You can go back and read all the comments directed at CR with a program beyond piss poor, a mandate to keep a bad news bunch of misfits and half the shoe moguls in the AAU biz against him.

            And then you can compare those extraordinarily reasonable comments to the completely unwarranted dismantling of Tinkle’s character based on parameters not associated with anything regarding him or the program at large.

            It’s just a sad portrait of who some of us are that Tinks is treated as he is.

      According to the University of Minnesota’s Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action report, which was obtained by KSTP-TV in Minneapolis on Friday, violations were broken down into three categories: sexual harassment; sexual assault, stalking and relationship violence; and student conduct code, Section IV.

      Four of the 10 suspended players were deemed to have violated the school’s sexual-assault provision, while eight were deemed to have violated the sexual-harassment policy. All 10 were deemed to have violated the student conduct code.

Now it has turned into a political issue as much as anything.

      That’s a lot naive. But it does give a good overall sense of how the naive perceive the world. He’s creating blanks that don’t exist and refusing to fill them in with what is known.

      This and the ESPN link whiskey sources above paint a pretty bad picture despite Reusse’s inability to come to grips with reality. It’s important to note that Minnesota is a one-person consent state when it comes to recording. The only way anyone breaks the law is if nobody present knows the recording is occurring or if the tape is posted to any website for profit.

      All of it sounds like she was mollied. The loss of memory… the compliance on tape and reportedly from the players, inconsistent as their stories were… the intermittent lucidity within a condition of feeling detached…. It happens to a lot of people, and even those who had it happen and had a friend or friends take good care of them and keep them safe from harm have a feeling of fear and depression after the event. I was one of those friends once, and I was scared shitless when my friend who I was caring for was just not there. She was conscious, coherent and compliant. But she wasn’t there, and I could tell.

      And then I had to spend several hours explaining to emergency room personnel, police and friends that I was innocent and just trying to help a friend in need. That was fun. And as mildly violated as I felt at the time, my friend withdrew from social life and became almost agoraphobic. I got her to some group counseling sessions, and that’s where I heard all the same stories from all different people, men included. The scenario played out by these students is not at all unique. And law enforcement can’t do anything about something they can’t prove.

      But I can tell you, without doubt, the worst of any of these situations are the bystanders who have zero clue about anything making snap judgments about anyone involved. So I would even hesitate to claim drugging even knowing it’s only found if law enforcement looks specifically for one of many that are available.

      All that being said, even if it was consentual and legal, all the players who knew an underage PSA was involved should be summarily expelled. And I wouldn’t doubt law enforcement might still be involved with the child porn aspect. If that video was shared, anyone who has it will probably be prosecuted. The PSA being involved was unknown to me before reading about it. That alone would be grounds for firing any coach not named Pitino.

      Back from LDS mission, former East High star RB Ula Tolutau to choose among BYU, Utah, USU and Oregon State
      http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865667775/Back-from-LDS-mission-former-East-High-star-RB-Ula-Tolutau-to-choose-among-BYU-Utah-USU-and.html

      ==============
      Tolutau told the Deseret News that a combination of Andersen not being there and some uncertainty about qualifying academically are the reasons he’s now looking elsewhere.

      As he ponders his next move, BYU, Utah, Utah State and Oregon State have emerged as front-runners for his services.

      ==============
      Tolutau took an official visit to Utah in October and one to BYU as the Cougars played SUU Nov. 12. He wants to visit Utah State soon and said a trip to Oregon State would just come down to discussing it with Andersen.

        His stats were fairly impressive out of high school, although not sure of his level of competition. He’s got good size at 6’1 230. I haven’t watched film of him to see how he runs.

        We also find ourselves thin at RB, Nall is an Ox but has a history of never quiet being healthy. That leaves us with only 1 other proven RB in Pierce, with the departure of Lucas.

        Found some video from his junior year. Looks like he played fullback most from a double wing style offense which would provide for lots of rushing yards.

        He looks faster than everyone else on the field, but doesn’t show much in the way of being shifty.

        He also benefited from have what appeared to be a few maulers on his O-line.

        I’m at work now and could only watch 2 minutes of his highlighys on my phone. Will be curious to see if he’s fat/out of shape from his mission.

    What would a Scott Barnes hire mean for Oregon State athletics? My guess is he will be 5-10% more Football focused which aligns well with Football being the economic engine and on the rise. Beaver Nation is excited about 2017 and beyond & best capitalizing on this should be a priority.

    Men’s hoops is in a lull but should have chance at NIT again next year if recruits like Ethan Thompson are able to make key contributions.

    OK with a Barnes hire if that is direction it goes. Have not heard many other names to be excited about so someone on board with Andersen’s vision of a Pac-12 contender in Football will at least keep that train rolling. With any luck football attendance will probably average around 41K next year which is a nice step up from this year’s meager numbers & important for getting the program energized for bigger things ahead.

    Caught the second half of the game. That was hard to watch and was one of the more hapless performances by an OSU basketball team that I think I’ve seen…well in quite a long time. McLaughlin had a decent game, but no one else could make a shot. OSU shot 14-50 overall, and if you take away McLaughlin’s 8 buckets, the rest of the team made 6 shots for the whole game. I continue to be amazed at college basketball players at the D-1 level who can’t at least make 70% on free throws. Thompson specifically. OSU was totally out-quicked at guard, and got beat off the dribble time and again. Of course, because they couldn’t make a shot, they gave the other team plenty of defensive rebounds. The RPI sites predict OSU to beat Kent State next, but after watching this game, I’m not so sure. Good lord, its going to be a long season.

He holds on to the ball in the double team was too long and it disrupts the already suspect offense.

            I think they are trying but they are bewildered. Often forgotten is that the players have had coaches from grade school on – all of them have done well in previous competition and now perhaps they are being told to do things counter to their previous experience – good or bad.

    Looks like #TPB are having their own basketball struggles:

    Riley mindset permeating the program? #ChewTheGum

      They have always stunk at basketball. Miles, the current coach, seemed to be a very good hire. Now it is all imploding. No facilities excuses. Brand new area and an expansive state of the art practice facility.

    Cooks had himself a very nice game:

    “Brandin Cooks caught seven passes for a career-best 186 yards for the Saints (6-8), including touchdown plays of 65 and 45 yards .”

      I wonder if his complaining about not being thrown to in whatever game that was, had anything to do with him being featured in this one.

    According to “Juco Weekly.” North Plains Texas Junior College has the number #1 ranked team in the country.

    Maybe it would be possible to do a wholesale 5 for 5 swap with the men’s team before the PAC-12 schedule starts next week. JB

    Went to the game yesterday. Dont think you have to look much further than our team’s collective age. Most experienced starter is a sophomore. Our PG is a true freahman and shoots much more tham he distributes. Also add that STJ does not look like ge has his legs yet, and no Tinkle jr. Thats a ton of inexperience we’re putting out there. Give them a year amd I think this is a different team.

      With how small bball rosters are it’s difficult to absorb 2 unplanned pgs leaving the team in the offseason.

      They just lost too much last year. Obviously Payton, but even the guys you all hated (Shaft, Reid, LMW) provided seasoned support and either one of those cats could go off for 20 points any given game that Tinkle or Stevie were playing like freshmen.

      Add in unplanned losses of Malcolm and Derek Bruce… That’s 6 of a predominately 9 man rotation.

      We have 2 proven good players with Tinkle and Stevie, and 1 work in progress with a potential very high side in Drew. Tinkle is out for the the year, and Stevie doesn’t look like he’s 100% back from injury.

      Can’t exactly make a trade or go grab someone out of the NBADL. And we aren’t Kentucky who can reload like that.

      This year is going to suck. Lot of bad luck.

        Isn’t the team fairly young? Made up mostly of Freshman and Sophomores?

          Mississippi State opened a can of whup-ass on this OSU team earlier this season. They have 9 freshmen and 4 sophomores on a 15-man roster…so sometimes you can play well even if you are young.

    Jonathan Smith’s contract expires after this season with the Huskies as an OC. Anderson said he wants the new hire to be able to work with QB’s and to work with offense to manage the pace of the game. Just because we lost our WR coach, doesn’t mean we’re going to hire a new WR coach. Baldwin can take over the WR. He’s shown he’s perfectly capable of handling the WR’s.

    Do we really want T.J. Woods and McGiven to be Co-Offensive Coordinators again? Or do we want to hire a new WR coach and put Baldwin back up in the booth and become predictable again?
