    Beavs win 4-1, Fehmel complete game. Gave up 8 hits, 1 ER on 112 pitches.
    Question now is, how good is the rest of the ucks pitching staff? And can their 3b continue to steal doubles from the good guys.

    Oh yeah, the jockitch/cj curse is broken, a night to remember for that fact alone!

      Eisert with a tender elbow and no sign of Mulholland. Hope we have enough arms to get through the weekend. Great effort by Fehmel though.

      “how good is the rest of the ucks pitching staff?”

      Arizona lit them up last weekend. 28 runs on Sunday. You read that right. Arizona won by three touchdowns.

      Beavs need to win this series. A sweep would be preferable.

    I’ve read/heard that Eisert didn’t start tonight because of a sore elbow and/or resting. Gambrell is questionable for Sunday after sitting-out “resting” last weekend. Verburg is out indefinitely, waiting to see an expert and, of course, Abel gone to tommy john. It’s amazing this team is sitting in first place right now. Is the Pac-12 really that great? If we win the conference would we be a top 8 team. Our RPI isn’t great and it will be tough to win our regional without most of our pitchers (our bats aren’t that great minus Adley); but this team has proven to pull out some unexpected wins and are still sitting in first place in the PAC. I fear a big collapse, but I’m still watching.

      It was a 124 pitch outing that resulted in Gambrell missing last weekend, how will a 112 pitch effort effect Fehmel? Hopefully his maturity and style will allow him to pitch again next weekend.

        It’s hard to count this team out, even though the odds are not in their favor. They have championship in their blood, though. And the Blazers make it hard for me to pay attention. What’s the Jokic/CJ curse?

        Apples and oranges as Gambrell throws heat while Fehmel is mostly an off speed location guy. Less stress on Fehmel’s arm than Gambrell who throws 95 or so. Fehmels top speed fastball is around 90-91.

    Eggers, who was denied an interview with our favorite AD this week, pulls no punches in his evaluation of Barnes’ “no comment” on the Baseball HC situation, says, “Instead of a “no comment,” he should have said this:
    “We’ll extend our June 1 deadline for Pat Casey’s request for reassignment until a week after the season ends. If he decides not to return, I’ll remove the ‘interim’ from Pat Bailey’s title and make him permanent head coach. He deserves that.”

    More in the piece, including comments on Horton’s possible future.

    From Goe’s article. Not gonna link it…………..

    Brandon Eisert and Grant Gambrell, normally OSU’s Friday and Sunday starters respectively, turned up this week with pitching arms Bailey referred to as “tender.”

    “They’re both going to be back next week,” Bailey said. “They might throw in relief this week, but they’re not going to start.”

    Probably a good weekend to rest them both since Oregon isn’t that great of a hitting team. Save the arms for Stanford.

      Watched a couple of innings of Stanford vs. Cal after OSU game. Yikes, as Stanford was playing HR derby. They look scary good. If the Beavs can get 1 out of 3 next weekend, I’ll be happy, but first things first. Take care of the Ducks this weekend and last night was a good start. The kid for the Ducks threw pretty well yesterday, but I think he’s their best guy some maybe our bats wake up tonight. Go Beavs.

    If Casey doesn’t come back they need a national search. Couple options with Oregon connections I think might have interest are Scott Brosius and Mitch Canham.

    Canham is seems to be on a path towards being a big league manager so not sure he’d be interested but a call should be made.

    Brosius has shown interest before.

        I understand that but a good AD (not that Barnes is one) is always prepared for all possibilities. And planning on handing the job to Bailey (without a search) is not being prepared.

    8-5 good guys going the the 8th. Pearce in line for the W, Pfennings 2 hitless innings in relief…….so far.

    Stanford DOWN BIG to Cal, Bears lead 18-1 after 8, Tree has 6 hits and 2 e’s, Bears 20 hits and zero e’s.

    UPDATE: FINAL IN BERKELEY, BEARS WIN 18-2
    And, in Eugene, Pfennings has slammed the door (so far) closing out the b8 in order. Hasn’t allowed a hit yet.

    Sole possession of first in the PAC.

    Pfennings went 3.1 innings, giving up 1 hit.
    Tyler Malone 2 for 5 with 3 RBI’s; very big if he is really BACK.
    Beau Philip 3 for 6 with a double; he seems to be BACK.

      What a difference a week makes. Shaping up to be a huge weekend at Sunken Diamond next week. The PAC 12 Championship and a top 8 seed on the line. Historically, the committee has overlooked the final weekend so best to make our statement over the next 8 days.

            Adley pitched in high school and throw into the low to mid 90s according to Mike Parker on the Joe Beaver Show. Apparently, they considered throwing him either last year or the year before out of the bull pen. I guess you never know given the current injuries to the staff.

      It was a horrible strike call and reminded me of the home plate umpire in 2017 in the LSU series. I mean, I’ll give the umpire the benefit of the doubt when it a few inches out of the zone but this was into the inside line of the batter’s box on the other side of the plate. Regardless, the Beavs left something like 13-14 ROB and that was their own undoing. That said, if you would have told me going into next weekend’s series against Stanford tied for the conference lead, I would have wondered what you were smoking. Yet, with all of the injuries to the big time arms, the Beavs still have a shot. If Eisert and Gambrell are good to go, I think we’ve got a good shot to win at least 1 or maybe 2 games, but Stanford is awfully talented.

      Very true, a missed opportunity for sure.

      But, at the risk of provoking angry, let’s not forget that he accounted for half the Beavs runs today, was one of only three Beavs to have multiple hits, and laid down a nice SAC bunt. A good athlete who has had limited playing time and has, as they say, a high ceiling.

      Are you talking about The Oregonian? We still subscribe to the paper edition (wife needs it for work). I found it odd that they did this huge write up about The Quacks meaningless game three win, babbling on about their incredible pitching (I guess they used a reliever as a starter?). I was surprised they didn’t somehow find a way to say that The Quacks still had a shot at the tournament, but that was the only thing they refrained from in the lovefest.

    Another quote from Pat Bailey. I realize there is a difference, maybe a fine line, between constructive criticism and confidence killing emphasis on the negative.

    Bailey is, by all accounts, a good man and he has gotten this team tied for the top of the PAC with several significant injuries. That said, the absence of Casey’s style of tough love, fact based, and motivational criticism is obvious when you read things like this from the GT:

    “We left 15 guys on base and that’s the difference in the game,” Bailey said. “We had 12 hits and only scored two runs (which) is crazy…
    “I told them after don’t hang your heads, we’re playing great defense, we came back and had a chance both in the eighth and the ninth innings to tie or win a game. We had a chance, all we needed was a hit. That’s baseball.”

      I’m waiting to hear the quotes like, “We will find out who our best 9 hitters are in the important moments. Which guys will step up and be consistent contributors. We have had chances to win games but we aren’t coming through right now. I expect someone to make a play in a key moment against Stanford.”

    I go on vacation for a bit and come back to getting swept at home?

    They are basically where I expected them to be at the start of the year. Good team but hitting holds them back.

    Pitching injuries now will prevent much of a run in the tourney.

    Just surprised that few guys have stepped up in this year with the amount of opportunity and the regression of more than a few. Hasn’t been a next man up kind of team.

    Unless they get hot offensively, it’s looking like supers are the ceiling this year.

    Getting pretty sick of all the reporters talking about Ducks recruiting. Don’t they have anything else to talk about? Like what about our baseball team or the progression a certain former 4* QB in Corvallis who might just be the next Heisman winner in the state when all is said and done?

        Or maybe just let the star tailback that got you to the goal line pound the rock and get his reward for busting his ass all the way down the field.

          I agree, WFO. Seems the idea of moving Colletto to LB is weak not only because Beavs already have a strong RB corps, but because it removes an experienced QB from the mix.

          And AK makes a good point too; he wouldn’t be the first LB to get a few shots at carrying the ball in short yardage goal line situations.

            LB is one of the few positions with decent talent/depth. Hmmm. Hopefully he can do both. The running QB does give a added look to the offense, but the pass threat needs to be there. If he is practicing with the D, that dimension will wither.

    From D1’s latest field of 64 projection:
    Not even a mention of Beavs as having a chance to host a Super, slated at #12 vs #5 Louisville.
    PAC has 5 bids, SEC+ACC total 19.
    The Gauchos, from angry’s old neighborhood, may host a regional in Las Vegas.
    And, another angry connection: Georgia and Georgia Tech sit at #7 and #8, for now.

    A little early for a Tournament Thread here, but a Stanford series thread seems due. Angry?

    Under Smith, Oregon State isn’t nearly as prominent on Twitter. He hasn’t posted anything to his personal Twitter account since last October. Oregon State football has an active Twitter account, but it mostly spreads news about the current team and former players. OSU assistant coaches have personal Twitter accounts, and some use it to retweet posts from recruits.

    Smith acknowledges there is value to using social media as a recruiting tool. It’s just not his style.

    “Maybe I’m old school, but I’m just not on it that much,” Smith said. “I’m way more into phone calls that I can have with recruits rather than retweeting their picture. That doesn’t say I’m right for doing it and they’re wrong. It’s just a different way of doing it.

    “I’m more into the authentic relationship.”

    Smith pauses, and turning to Oregon, says “I’m not saying their stuff isn’t authentic. I’m really not. Sounds like (Cristobal) is all over Twitter. I don’t know. I haven’t seen it. I’m sure there are some benefits to it.”

      One might hypothesize that Smith’s method would attract the high output, low ego type of player. So many kids these days are most concerned with seeing their name in lights. The type of player Smith wants is becoming rare and likely makes recruiting much harder. What does he offer as incentive if he doesn’t provide the glitz and glamour like other programs?

        Smith can offer a culture that kids believe in and coaching that can help them get better. He will find kids that value the chance to get coached. Not all kids want that or will be receptive to it. He did well at schools with non-elite talent which is what he has at OSU at this point. You don’t hear about glitz and glamour but not all kids want that. Look at Utah for example. Those players don’t seem to care about the attention or the uniform combinations. They respect their coach and take pride in disturbing the expected conference big dogs. It wasn’t long ago the Beavs were winning 6-8 games a year with the same type of guys he is recruiting now.

        Sunday game could very well end up being played on Monday. Per Lundeberg, “Friday’s forecast in Palo Alto looks fine, but the weekend could be problematic…Under normal circumstances, Oregon State would not be required to stay Monday if two games get played. But these are not normal circumstances, and I know people behind the scenes have been working out the details”

        Saturday’s game has already been moved to a noon start, apparently due to incoming storm late Saturday/early Sunday. Even with the time change, the game is still set to be on PAC12 net, according to The School site.

    “A rough fourth inning chased Luke Heimlich for the shortest start of his professional career Tuesday, …Heimlich (3-2, 4.26 ERA) had won his previous three starts entering Tuesday. He escaped jams in each of the first three innings before the Tigres finally got to him…Heimlich finished with five runs allowed off eight hits, two walks, two wild pitches and a hit batter with three strikeouts in 3.2 innings.”

    Good Lord, it looks like Stanford is taking batting practice against Fehmel. 6-5 Cards now.

    Home run, triple, sac fly up against the CF fence, double off the RF wall. Did I miss anything?

    And are these announcers told to bring up Oregon at random times? Who cares about their game against USC? It’s meaningless, yet one of the commentators said “Oregon is in need of wins”. Wins for what? They’re a shitty team, with an overpaid, under performing manager. They aren’t going anywhere.

          @Rev, yes I saw some of them but couldn’t watch the whole game. I’m not saying the coaching is perfect etc. There obviously has been some differences this year in attention to detail. I just get tired of the predictable comments when they lose regarding Bailey/Casey. And some of the third year players are definitely not stepping up Lomé they should. They also are more like second year or even first year full time players. They should be growing up by now and that game could have easily been a win. Should we think back to when Casey didn’t challenge the call down the line in the college World Series two years ago? He wasn’t a perfect coach. No coaches are. We have to trust Bailey is getting these guys where they need to be when it matters most. I want to see what they do in a regional. And who cares if they host. If all pitchers are healthy and the bats are clicking that’s more important.

    We looked bad in every aspect of the game tonight. Fehmel was not on and after screaming at my TV for Pat to pull him, in trots Mundt and suddenly I’m thinking “oh crap, maybe that’s why he wasn’t eager to pull Fehmel”.

    Where on earth our are all of our pitchers? Why are half of them sore or injured?

    I love Tyler Malone but man, he’s really struggling this year, on defense and offense.

    Joe Casey had a really good game this tonight.

    The worst thing about our team is that they look defeated throughout the game. They are missing that never say die spirit that they had the last couple years. If we were down in the late innings last year you would almost think “this is right where we want them”. Now if we get down a run or two in the 6th I feel like it’s insurmountable. If we are down 1 in the 7th they basically just have to walk Adley, get Ober to pop up to end the inning and you can almost be assured it’s 6 more easy outs and game over.

    Who knows, Stanford looked clearly better than us, but I’m not sure that was saying much. I’m not sure either of us deserve to be top 15 teams right now.

    I know we are still ranked decent and are probably doing better than some people expected, but our team is worse in every single way and getting worse by the week it seems. Where on earth would we be without Adley right now. The best part of the rest of this year is going to be seeing him go 1-1 in the draft.

    Last night was a debacle. Not unexpected to lose at Stanford on a Friday night without 4 of the top 6 pitchers available for an extended period of time does tend to take a toll.
    However, Adley made 3 major gaffs, allowing Stanford to be aggressive on the bases successfully, a passed ball, and 2 atrocious throws to 2nd on steals.
    Adley’s throws were bad, but Malone was trying to be Dave Parker in right, but threw it to the back stop like he was tossing to home plate located in the press box. In addition, Malone was on roller skates on the fly he lost in the sun(dusk sky, lights?) Malone should be batting 1st or 9nt because he isn’t coming out of the slump and isn’t reliable to continue any type of rally at this point. I’d rather see someone else in right.
    Beavs took a 2 run lead into the bottom of the 5th and Fehmel decided to start throwing bp instead of pitching like a Friday starter in the Pac12.

    These are supposed to be the team leaders and settle everybody down for a big game, but they all melted in the basic fundamentals. I agree with Rev above. Fundamentals are not good and discipline is becoming a fond memory. Prove me wrong, injuries have been brutal all year, but so have the upperclassmen (Adley aside).

    Baley has a big challenge and he must have known the comparisons would happen. He has them within reach of a conference championship and Regional seed, which is great for many programs in the country. I’m trying not to be that entitled fan who expects to make Omaha every year, but that is the bar that Casey was able to set and fulfill. Go Beavs!

      Looks like 1 game should played today, but who ultimately makes the call to not make up another game on Monday? League? Home team? Mutual decision by teams playing?
      By not playing, Stanford is guaranteed to tie OSU in the conference, at worst. If we had won Friday, would the decision have been different?

        C’mon, I’m as discouraged as the next Beav but Jones has contributed by more than being HBP. I seem to remember him taking away a HR from the other side just a few days ago.

      Leave it to Bob Lundeberg to shed light on the camera debacle, he tweets:
      “Only took two hours. Not embarrassing at all for the conference of champions”
      This, in response to a PAC12 tweet at 1:43pm, “Our team is aware of the foggy camera lens and is working to resolve the issue.

      Never resolved, but, Larry is so very busy………….counting his $$$$

    UCLA #1, Stanford #14, and the other OSU #8.

      Even road wins against the Trojan could end up hurting.

      The worst part about RPI is that you can be hurt for winning a game. If we were smart we would never play Portland State again.

            Even if the Beavers upgrade talent everywhere they still will need a QB that can deliver under pressure and while taking hits to even compete in the P12.

    Good to see Zac T hit the homer. Senior season has not gone as expected, but he was the unsung hero of last season’s CWS and has been a great Beaver.

    Did I hear correctly that the two Oregon kids on the Stanford roster played with Aldley and Zac on the same little league team?

      He was hitting something like .127 with 0 home runs when they sent him in there to pinch hit with bases loaded.

      They must really love the kid to send them in there with those kind of stats in that important of a situation. Last year he was batted .274. He’s one of the more perplexing drop-offs. Maybe he will turn it around this week.

      Stanford has two kids from West Linn High School. Their shortstop Tim Tawa (Sophomore) and their DH and Pitcher Will Mathiessen (Junior). That West Linn High School team was loaded with talent. Included Karsen Lindell who was a UW commit as well but turned pro instead I believe.

      I believe that Zac played with Will on one of his summer ball teams and had played against Tawa growing up.

    New QB commit looks like a low 3 star. Downgraded because of production. Hasn’t really produced due to injury, which is another big concern.

    im hearing from a source that if Ethan and Tres return next season, more players will be leaving the program. Let’s just say that two of those players are big time contributors. My source was correct in Washington departure as reported to me in January. The tinkle experiment could implode very soon.

    The Oregonian has apparently pissed off the wrong people. They posted a clickbait/trolling article after the blazers most recent playoff loss, where they quote social media posts that trolled the blazers. Referencing the blazers guards as the “trash brothers” because they dont measure up to golden state’s “splash brothers”.

    Sure, it’s not their own material, but if you dont bother reading the post, it looks like it’s the oregonian coining the phrase.

    On top of that, the Blazers star player is playing through a significant rib injury and not really deserving of this treatment.

    Well, the Blazers team management didnt appreciate it and has decided to pull all advertising from the oregonian. Whoops.

    Wish OSU did the same in relation to the Heimlich coverage.

    “The Tecolotes Dos Laredos claimed their first win under new manager Alfonso “Houston” Jiménez Sunday as they defeated Rieleros de Aguascalientes 13-2 in Nuevo Laredo.

    Luke Heimlich (4-2, 3.89 ERA) got the start on the mound. Heimlich lasted six innings allowing two runs on six hits while striking out 11.

    Here is Aaron Fitt on the failure of the PAC to see that the OSU-Stanford series included a third game. Note he (and others) places the blame on the PAC12 Network.

    The PAC12 Network, you know, the reason for Larry Scott’s level of pay!

    Fitt says, “The Pac-12 really dropped the ball in a huge way by not allowing Stanford and Oregon State to play a doubleheader on Friday, to accommodate the Pac-12 Network. “

    Fitt goes on to talk about winning percentage determining conference winner and how one loss by Bruins coupled with two wins by Beavs could give the Beavs the title. He admits he’ll have to check this out. NOTE: He should also check out his math; even if the Beavs sweep vs SC, it will take two losses by UCLA for the Beavs to have a better winning percentage.

    BTW, Fitt doesn’t see the Beavs hosting a super even if they do, somehow, end up on top of the PAC12.

    Good luck with Gulbranson lol. Dude smokes more weed than Snoop Dogg and never has money. Total mooch too. Played with him since grade school, he doesn’t love football at all he was always so surprised he was getting recruited. If it wasn’t for his parents, he would’ve gone to NorCal to work on the pot farms. If he makes it a few years I’ll be surprised. He won’t ever put in extra time and he never watches film and does the bare minimum in the weight room, slacks off in drills and has terrible body language/attitude when he gets sacked… You’ll see!

    Baseball team will host a regional. Now it just matters who they are matching up vs.

    Hosting a super isn’t out of the question. Half the top 8 lost in regionals last year.

    If they make it out of regionals and host supers, they’ll head back to Omaha.

    This team doesn’t have it in them to win on the road in the supers.

        I wouldn’t have counted out the 2016-2018 teams, but I have no problem agreeing with the notion that this year’s team won’t get past a super regional on the road against a top-16 seed team.

        They have not shown the mental strength to win close games, they make too many fielding mistakes, and (the biggest reason) they lack plate discipline. Pitching depth is important in tournament play, but drawing walks and scoring runs is crucial (hence, why Florida loses in the tournament almost every year.)

        They will get smacked in two games if they have to go on the road to Mississippi State or Vanderbilt for the supers.

    Beavs picked up the coveted “4*” verbal from WR Zeriah Beason today, out of Texas. At least he’s 4* on Rivals, but on 247 he’s a 3*, which means their articles wont get as many views as Rivals’ will. F 247 and their shitty 3 stars.

            I’m trying to remember, did Smith have any guys from his 2019 class flip to another team? I cant think of any.
            I think Smith is of the Chris Peterson philosophy with taking verbal commitments, where he wont allow a guy to announce a verbal commitment unless theyre 100% solid and ready to shut it down. So far in his tenure, he has had pretty good results in that regard.

            Found a feature on 247 that tracks “decommits”.
            Smith only had 1 last year, JC WR Trevon Clark.

            And that came after we added Nebraska transfer Tyjon Lindsey and at one of the few positions where we actually have depth.

            @Nicebeaver, I didn’t know 247 had that feature, pretty cool. Looking at Washington’s decommits you see the philosophy you mentioned. Just for fun, I looked up the quackers decommits. Lets just say the list is longer than the Beavs.

            Not long ago the variation in “offer” numbers was mentioned here. Ucks are in the group which offers 250+ while the Beavs (and UW) offer at least 100 less.

            Point being that Smith’s model is to make serious offers to those he has researched while those flashy places which like to count numbers aren’t as selective.

    I think OSU has a decent shot at landing UW transfer Colson Yankoff.
    Makes sense from the perspective that he already committed to play for Smith at UW. Also from a depth chart perspective. He has to sit 1 year. After that, he would have only Gebbia to compete with for 2 years and would be almost guaranteed to start as a senior. Also consider that Smith has recently asked Colletto to move over to the defensive side of the ball, meaning our remaining depth is that much thinner, with only Willard and Moore remaining, plus incoming freshman Gulbrantson.
    Yankoff would be guaranteed a starting spot in his next eligible playing year if Gebbia ever went down with an injury. It’s a good situation to step into actually. He’s also an engineering guy when it comes to academice, and playing at OSU would allow him more road games closer to home than most other options.

    He visited UCLA unofficially last week and I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear about him visiting OSU soon.

      It was Colletto’s idea to make the switch because he wants to play. Smith ok’d it but if Luton and Gebbia were to be out for a while he could move back over. Yankoff would fit in nicely to bridge the gap between Gebbia and the prep commit. It’s unfortunate that Willard has not progressed. Not sure if that was a bad evaluation by GA’s staff or if he just got lost in the coaching change.

        Willard was pretty clearly awful as a prep.
        Colletto had intrigue and value with what he did. It’s a bummer he switched. We lose a goal line threat for a linebacker who will never play, so we got worse.

          Can Smith still put Colletto in for the same packages he played last year? I don’t see why he can’t still run up the middle. It’s not like he is risking an injury to his throwing arm.

          Yankoff had pretty similar rushing stats as a prep, averaging about 100 yds per game, but he’s also a much better passer than Colletto. In this scenario, we lose Colletto’s run threat for a season, but get better in the long run.
          And like Krol suggests, Colletto would still technically be available.

          I’d almost rather throw 2 RBs out there than Colletto and 1RB anyway. Colletto just isn’t much of a threat to pass. We all saw his Civil War jump pass INT at the goal line in the Civil War.

            I’ve advocated a wing T approach to utilize the strength of the RB corps. Regardless of formation, I like having 2 RB sets in the playbook, and using those sets in short yardage situations…anywhere on the field.

            One thing about Colletto being in the QB room: sure, it gives you a (predictable) backup if the first two or three guys go down, BUT, doesn’t it take up at least some of the coaches time/effort along with practice reps which could be spent on others?

    Beason grades out as a high three star. Why isn’t he a four star? production. He doesn’t have much. His film is 90% screens too. Report say he caught under 30 balls last year.

    The goods,
    He’s got football speed, plays fast, shows awareness when trying to make a play, catches the ball away from his body.

    The best part about his film is that it shows him blocking. That’s something that’ll get him on the field early.

    The questions,
    Routes – I mean the film didn’t show a whole lot outside of the screens.
    Can he separate against good dbs?

    Hopefully he has a big senior year and signs in the early period. Other schools will come after him hard when they strike out on their first choices.

    Looks like most people in the comments think we win between 0 and 2 games.
    I’m not sure what I think yet, but if we win 2 games there will be some balking about Smith. I think he should get one more year at least since GA left a dumpster fire with a stick of dynamite in it.

      Getting and staying healthy will be the most important thing this year. that, and improvement on defense. if we trot out the same sad effort on defense this year that we saw in 2018, I can even see Cal Poly marching down the field with time killing, sustained, triple-option drives. They’re not a great team talent wise, but their scheme is so different and we’re just a terrible defensive team anyway.
      Hawaii is improved and on the road
      OK State (and really every other team we face) is more talented top to bottom.

      On the bright side, we have a better DLine this year(hopefully?), we’re adding Addison Gumbs(hopefully??) and we get David Morris back from injury (hopefully???)

      But yeah, 2-3 wins really feels like a reasonable expectation and anything better feels like it would be because the breaks went our way (no injuries for us, key injuries for the opponent)

      I was a stat recently showing totals wins for FBS teams over the last 5 years. We’re 3rd from worst with 14, trailing only Kansas(9) and Kent State(12).

      This season is all about QB play. Defense will see if Luton or Gebbia are up to task. QB completion rate needs to go up to mid 60s for the Beavs to win multiple games and open up the running game.

      And if the offense is moving the ball, it’ll keep the defense from being exposed. Smith has shown, he doesn’t really go with the hurry offense all the time.

      That being said, the ceiling is 4-5 wins.

        I don’t know, we’re talking about a historically bad defense last season (thank god UConn was the worst). The D has to improve by at least 25% on key measurements to get the win total to 3 or 4. QB play is important, but when a team is beyond shit on defense that has to be the focus for improvement.

      Scott Barnes has seemed extra confident and happy lately. I can only assume that means Casey is coming back and he will spin like he had something to do with it.

            That’s what I remember reading too. it was Eggers suggestion to Barnes, rather than a blanket “no comment” statement.

            Barnes was on the radio in portland this morning, but i missed most of it. Rip city Mornings on 620AM, at around 7:20.
            I managed to catch the tail end to him answering a question about Casey and all I heard was Casey hasn’t decided yet and will either be remaining as the Associate AD or returning as HC. And if he doesn’t return to coaching, the decision will come soon enough that there will still be plenty of time to perform a national coaching search. He said national coaching search more than one time. Seems to be one of those things he really prides himself on is conducting coaching searches.

            There was more conversation about athletic department budget and football going away from payday games and trying to schedule more home games with G5 opponents. Nigel Burns seemed pretty skeptical that the Oregon State budget can handle that type of change to scheduling.

            Anybody else listen in? I barely was able to catch anything. Maybe a podcast will be put out later.

            go back and re-read the article. It specifically states that they will extend the deadline to 7 days after the season ends for reassignment. Initially, I thought it was 10days but it’s only 7. It’s not what they should do but rather it’s what they have agreed to do.

            my mistake as I overlooked that sentence and found the sentence I referred to above. If Barnes doesn’t give him additional time after the season ends, he’s more of a fool than we thought. Given everything Casey has done for OSU and baseball in this state, he should have as much flexibility as he has earned and deserved it. If not, Barnes can take a hike and I don’t think anyone would be sad if he did.

            You are makin’ me feel like Rodney Dangerfield! I posted Eggers mention of what Barnes should say on this thread above at 10:34pm on 5/10.
            Here is that post:

            “Eggers, who was denied an interview with our favorite AD this week, pulls no punches in his evaluation of Barnes’ “no comment” on the Baseball HC situation, says, “Instead of a “no comment,” he should have said this:
            “We’ll extend our June 1 deadline for Pat Casey’s request for reassignment until a week after the season ends. If he decides not to return, I’ll remove the ‘interim’ from Pat Bailey’s title and make him permanent head coach. He deserves that.”

            More in the piece, including comments on Horton’s possible future.”

School grounds locked down, open space owners afraid to allow games for fear someone will sue them if there’s an injury, 4-year-olds in competition. My past winter in Nicaragua, I enjoyed seeing youngsters devise games on their own. Talent that will never go beyond the dirt streets.

      PAC 12 champs and the #1 National seed. That team got it done all year until the regional and a soft tossing spinner had them out of sorts. The 2014 and 2017 teams were both the class of college baseball and could have been title teams. The 2019 team may blow their chance to host a regional.

        Unless something traumatic happened prison would seem a higher probability than him passing away. His taste for craft beer and classic rock make it hard to think he was that old. Plus how many old guys can figure out how to post YouTube videos here. I know I can’t.

        Been hoping he just got really busy with work and was taking the offseason off from the site. But the longer he stays away, the more i worry for the guy.
        Hope to hear from you soon Jack

          Then get read for a thread killing 45 post midnight rant about health insurance and trump’s foreign policy. Oh and some random YouTube music videos. But I agree, when he stays focused, he has some good insight on beaver sports.

      No facts to back it but anecdotally it seems like the team played better team ball when there was less nepotism, ie first year of WT and those times when the sons were not given all the minutes.

      A total of, what, 7 hits? Only two from guys not named Philip or Rutschman.

      HR’s are great and the W most welcome. Nice to see Malone get that single but without more consistency up and down the lineup it’s hard to be very optimistic.

      Armstrong sure had a terrific day in the field though, seemed like he was responsible for more than a third of the outs. UPDATE: 8 assists, 3 po’s.

    I don’t follow lineup strategy but I have wondered why, after Armstsrong’s fine work when Madrigal was hurt last year, Armstrong didn’t get more playing time thereafter.

    Jack always complained about living in Eugene. Quick search of the Eugene Register Guard obits…. shows a John (Jack) XXXXX, not going to publish his last name. Dying on May 8th of “age related causes..” He was “Loved my many friend and former students.” Dude was born in 1926. Any way our boy Jack was pushing 93???

        I think he is/was pretty old. I forget how that came up, but it did somehow.
        He sounded young when he called the Joe Beaver Show.

          That obit mentions “former students”, did Jack ever indicate that he was in the teaching profession? I always got the idea that he was involved in construction.

          Doubtful that jetpack is keeping him out, he seemed tech savvy enough to get around that.
          Speaking of which, jetpack continues to be an intermittent annoyance here!

        Very possible, fits my image more than a 93 year old. Jack’s comments about friends who served since 911 also tend to make me lean toward this fellow.

        Neither obit found here says anything about service in the Navy?

        He mentioned wife and daughter, and wife’s prohibition of his smoking an occasional joint till kids were out of the house. I don’t, however, remember mention of grandkids.

        Maybe angry’s reference to the letter “C” came from the middle name?

    D1 now has Beavs (RPI 14) opposite Georgia Tech (RPI 8) regional. Lundeberg’s “slam dunk” remark looking valid.

    BYU still in Corvallis regional, but one of “last five in”, sets up a possible Thursday start to the regional.

    Looks like no Las Vegas regional hosted by UCSB, Gauchos now are slated for the Stanford regional.

    The most likely explanation for Jack’s extended hiatus is that he has repaired to a secure remote location, like the Unibomber, to work on and eventually publish, on this site, his 100,000+ word manifesto setting the world straight on every topic known to man.

      Over the SC series, Beavs tallied 5 e’s.
      As for offense, pedestrian is putting it mildly. Totals for the 3 games: 32 k’s and15 hits (7 of which were by either Philip or Rutschman).

      Can Bailey, or anyone other than the players themselves, turn these bats around?

      Host sites to be announced at NCAA.com and on social media at 5:30 p.m. PT on Sunday.

    From the “Does it matter now?” file, there is this from Eggers twitter:

    We still have no explanation in the press box what the call was on Zalesky’s strikeout with runners second and third and one out in B8. He was not allowed to run to first on the third strike after the ball bounced off the turf.

    Sure seemed strange that he didn’t run that one out, but Philip’s slow start on his double down the line seemed strange too. Gotta think Zalesky heard the ump cry “foul”.

    The Beavers have lost eight of their last 13 games heading into the postseason, after today’s shutout Bailey said this (per the GT),

    “There’s nothing you can do about it so you’ve got to show up and I told them today things had better change from a competitive viewpoint in terms of helping each other out and wanting to fight for one another,” Bailey said. “That’s going to have to change if we want to do well in the postseason.”
