    Does anyone have, or know where to find, a “coverage map” of the different Pac-12 channel broadcasts?

    For instance, what area(s) does Pac-12 Oregon get broadcast? I have a feeling that the eastern 2/3 of Oregon is tied either to Pac-12 Washington or Pac-12 Mountain. It certainly doesn’t seem to be tied to Pac-12 Oregon’s broadcasts.

    I know, whining again….

      Well it’s a valid point. Some tv execs somewhere are totally missing the concept that P12 Oregon is missing have of its audience. This is the type of thing that I would place on the athletic director to adequately inform the tv execs of this continually missed opportunity for greater product coverage. But BDC was so good at eloquently pointing out what he didn’t think was his job. Hopefully the new AD won’t miss on improving P12 revenues. Won’t miss on allowing poor tv scheduling, Those ARE athletic director job functions.

      Can’t fully answer your question, but I know Bendbroadband always carries both the main PAC12 and the PAC12-Oregon. So, I am guessing it is entirely dependent upon the cable provider.

      PAC streams all subsets as well as the occasional bonus…like recently when softball displaced the beginning of a Beavs baseball game.

        I’m on Dish Network. You would think that with 5 channels the Pac-12 would send a feed to one of them, although the game IS on tonight. I’ve contacted Dish and they say that it is totally up to the Pac-12 what is broadcast.

    OT, but what do you guys think about the incoming crop of RBs?

    Tim Cook has a pretty impressive offer sheet- thoughts from his highlight reel?

    In addition to Cook, we have another *4* running backs in the class of 2015: Katoa, Lucas, Sands, and Thomas. Anderson must have no confidence in our talent at the position- he appears to be completely rebuilding.

    I have heard rumors that Lucas may be used as a WR though- anyone want to comment on that?

      Since best HS talent is usually utilized at rb, it makes sense to recruit Rbs. If they can’t make it at rb, they can used elsewhere.

      I think, if we’re modeled off the USU playbook, we’ll be a heavy running team. Having that many backs is good for that I guess.

      They want guys like Lucas because they can have them as a single back and change the play up to have them be a WR to go 5 wide if needed.

      They have had Vic Bolden learn the RB playbook as well for this same purpose.

      As Jack would say, Cook was available for a reason. Looks good on paper but carries a modicum of risk. If the online does not improve substantially, running back name will not really matter much.

      Eggers and Andersen imply Lucas is a WR in this article:

      http://portlandtribune.com/pt/12-sports/260238-132086-gary-andersen-is-pushing-pushing-pushing-at-oregon-state

      “I told Victor I want him to know the run plays,” Andersen says. “Because if we’re in an empty situation with five receivers on the field, we could put him in the backfield and hand him the ball. (Incoming freshman receiver) Paul Lucas is another guy like that. We need all those weapons we can get.”

    American Pharoah won the Preakness. Best chance I have seen at Triple Crown in quite some time. Todd Stansbury right now is closest thing in Oregon State AD race. Call Byrne Divining Rod and Casey Dortmund. Massari bringing in the rear.

    Is there a darkhorse out there? Don’t like the idea of an interim AD if it confuses the selection process at all. Cal situation turned into a mess. Prefer agrressively targeting leaders now and either hiring right after the 4th of July or by mid August right before the start of the Football season.

    OT- Don’t know anything about the author, but he ranks OSU as one of the top 5 programs in decline among the football power conferences. I think it’s interesting because we all seem very energized by the changes in Corvallis, but I’m wondering where the intersection of expectation and reality meet at this point (at least for the short term)? That being said, the author does spout a lot of the typical Riley/Corvallis cliches.

      Sure, Riley, “made the jump to another program”. More and more it is obvious that Riley was pushed out, thank goodness (or Ray, or BDC, or “influential boosters”).
      Note that this writer is paid by the same folks who are providing our gal Lindsay with a platform.

      mckalk has a valid point, the intersection of expectations and reality is coming up fast and will be worth watching.

      This dude doesn’t seem to have his facts straight either. I would like to know how we can be in decline when we have nowhere to go but up… literally. Playing against the Pac South is hard and daunting and all that? If we didn’t do that last season, we would have had zero conference wins.

      I’ll need a definition for decline. If we’re already at the bottom, where do we decline from there?

        It’s interesting because this guy is pumping up Riley for the achievments, but giving him a pass for the decline. You can’t have it both ways. I’ve never heard of the author and I didn’t realize it was SI related when I posted it…maybe it’s Lindsay under an alias?

      Yes they are. We are in line 2nd place and are playing our best ball the past few weeks. 3 of 4 should be enough but it wouldn’t be 100% certain. Win all 4 and it is a slam dunk we host. Pac-12 will be pushing for us to host with even 3 so I like our chances. Finish these last games strong and this team definitely deserves it. Goss Stadium is a great host site and the committee knows how well we support our team and love baseball in the Beaver State.

          Iowa is slated to be a host right now and they’re 29th in RPI, two ahead of the Beavers. A series win or sweep over Cal puts the Beavers in at least mid 20’s and a chance to steal that final hosting spot and Iowa has the Big Ten Tournament. A slip up from them and you never know. Not likely to host but definitely still a shot.

    I have a better solution. Instead of adding teams, get rid of conference post season tournaments. The regular season conference champion is awarded the auto bid. Then we don’t have these ridiculous teams that come in with losing or sub par records because they got hot for one weekend. The entire regular season finish should hold the most weight. Not because one team had one great weekend. The RPI is going to continue being a joke as long as teams from the southeast can continue to schedule cream puffs and not travel for away games unless they are penalized for doing so. The Pac-12 has as many CWS titles in the last 10 years as the SEC yet every year the SEC and ACC iare given more at large berths than any other conference. Explain that one

      Conference tournaments can be fun but it doesn’t give us the best 64 teams in the field. Campbell lost in their conference title game two years ago and missed out cause the schedule was weak. I thought they were definitely a top 30 or so team. Conference tourney cost them a spot in regionals. Baseball is a sport where the best teams in the conference will be where they should be with 27-30 game schedules. The regular season conference winner should always be given an automatic berth to regionals. Ridiculous that it isn’t the case already. Pac-12 has it the way it should be.

    Good news/Bad news from ESPN baseball scouts – baseball commit, Cadyn Grenier.

    “Bishop Gorman SS Cadyn Grenier has moved up boards and could go as high as the second round. The Oregon State commit has good bat speed and hand-eye coordination and makes lots of loud, hard contact for someone who’s only 5-foot-10. He loads his hands high, resulting in either a very linear bat path or a downward sloping one, something I’d change in pro ball to create more loft in his swing. He uses his lower half in a way similar to Corey Seager — though he doesn’t have that kind of explosiveness — taking a big stride but remaining flexible in his lower half to maintain his balance.

    He can move the bat around the zone a bit, too. I think he’s got a good chance to hit in pro ball with some adjustments and I believe the legs and hands to play shortstop should be there as well. Scouts are only concerned that a lack of arm strength might force a move to second base. If it does, how much power is Grenier going to have at maturity and will it play at second where the offensive standard is higher than it is at shortstop?”

    Guys drafted in the first few rounds tend to turn pro so it seems like he won’t suit up for the Beavs next fall.

      i checked out one of his games a month ago when he was first rumored. look for the BYU/Utah St game he started in place of Keeton. He’s mostly pro-style, but showed the ability to use his legs to get downfield on a few occasions. He was on fire in that game though and didn’t need to run. I liked what I saw. Also, as mentioned below, he’d have to sit a year.

            I bet it is, and I’d watch it if anyone can find it, but I’ve seen enough with those highlights. He threw the deep ball, deep out, short slants etc, all with proper velocity, height, etc for the respective throw. He just looks really good. Considering he had interest from Duke and other good schools, you have to believe he’s smart, too. My only issue is he can’t play this year, and I can see him complicating the picture next year, which is a good problem to have, but could also have some ripple effects.

            I’m guessing that he didn’t want to waste another year behind Keeton and we don’t really know if Collins can handle the passing game at the P-12 level yet. He has a relationship with the head coach, saves a year and will be in the mix in 2016. In what I’ve seen of Collins, I don’t know how he stays injury free during his career unless he grows up in a hurry.

        Extra weekly behind the scenes coverage of OSU every week practicing, before, during and after games if we are selected. Believe an hour long show and we would get half of it every week. Great way to get to know this staff much better in Year 1 and get national focus on the program all season.

            that gets a downvote? it’s just a question.

            it does look like a good opportunity for Andersen to sell his program to potential recruits, but is the pac 12 network even available outside of the major west coast markets? Like will florida or texas recruits have access to it?

            Do people watch the SEC Network? Lots of people in Cali, Washington, Arizona and Colorado will see this. It’s some of the Pac-12’s very best programming during the season. Other markets like Chicago and DC get the Pac-12 Network just like I have SECNetwork on Dish. Those that like the Pac-12 brand of football and its coaches will tune in and see a gutsy program clawing its way forward. It is good exposure and will help recruiting as players will see what it is like to play for Andersen and Oregon State.

            that’s what i was wondering. i didn’t think the pac-12 network was even available outside of LA/Phoenix/SLC/Bay area/Oregon/Utah/Colorado/Washington. Nice that people outside those areas will have access to it.

            I did see one episode of the Drive with ASU a year or two ago. It’s pretty well done. Just too bad they had to go with 2 teams this year, but I’m assuming it’s all because those are 2 of their smaller markets so they needed to stretch their audience.

            I expect viewership will be good this year. There are a lot of storylines between Oregon State and Utah and the good part from OSU’s perspective is that some coaches left that state to come here. When these two teams collide it will be fun to watch. Great exposure for this team and especially guys like Seth Collins, Bolden, Lucas and Hawkins. Sitake’s defense will also get prime focus.

    The committee wants at least two regionals in the West. So how No. 15 USC (RPI: 23) and Cal State Fullerton (RPI: 29) fare this weekend should help determine OSU’s fate. The Trojans host No. 16 Arizona State (RPI: 32), while the Titans host Long Beach State (RPI: 73).

    Therein lies the problem. Why should the west coast only get 2 while the southeast gets the other 14? The 2nd place ACC and SEC teams will be hosting regionals. So why does the Pac-12 and the rest of the west coast get the screw job?

      Hard to say if Stansbury would really do enough to raise the bar. Part of me thinks by being exposed to the school while it underperformed in some sports he might become too comfortable with small gains. May take an external shaker upper who will hold coaches accountable if they aren’t reaching enough success. Would like to see an aggressive campaign for Reser as well that tries to maximize our position for the next 20 years in this league. Ray better be pursuing a talented and savvy AD. What do you think Ray’s voice is in comparison to the committee he has set up. Is he only the final approval? I ask as I didn’t see his name on the committee. Ray should be involved to some extent on determining who will most raise the bar for excellence at Oregon State. This is a big hire.

          No kidding. Let those that think it’s somehow something hedonistic jump on that “temptation.”

      I’m assuming this is from the Olive article… picked up off the ESPN recap of the same piece:

      Well, the first week that Gary Andersen was on the job he called me just to introduce himself. In (the decade-plus I’ve been at my high school) I never got a call from Mike Riley, so I thought that was kind of cool.

        Forward thinking? That’s a neat deal.

        If you read the UO article the same coach has some interesting things to say about the hole.

          He or she just sounds bitter about the Ducks.

            Just read it. I don’t see how 1+1 equals bitter. Nikegon’s coaches could have shown up and talked to the coach before now. Their actions say they were (and still are) big-timing his kids for years now. That’s not good or bad.

            Is it?

            It’s just their recruiting philosophy. It’s hard to argue they haven’t been successful finding players who will fit their system using this same philosophy. Maybe Coach D runs a pro set offense, and his kids don’t translate as well to the spread option on the next level. Maybe speed is the only factor they evaluate, and the Oregon kids are dismissed in evaluations because their a couple hundredths slower.

            But for whatever reason they choose to big-time a coach and a school, it’s still big-timing.

    Some free advertising for @beavrecruiting. Beavs top O-line target Michael Eletise tagged the account in some artwork featuring him as some Hulk/Beaver football hybrid.
    Hope the Beavs can get this guy. As talented as Isaac Seumalo. Has a ton of offers. Cousins with 2015 commit Elu Aydon.

    Now this is some amazing art!! Mahalo!! @BeavRecruiting #WeDamBeavs #BuildTheDam http://t.co/zAT4eyZntC

    “Well, the first week that Gary Andersen was on the job he called me just to introduce himself. In (the decade-plus I’ve been at my high school) I never got a call from Mike Riley, so I thought that was kind of cool. They had a coach come by (recently), just kind of making the rounds, which I think is a good move. You need to get in the schools and at least act like you’re interested.”

    Another comment showing a better impression from Andersen than Riley.

      Yeah, that was surprising. I figured he’d be calling just to shoot the breeze. Or maybe go to morning coffee with them.

        … or maybe to talk football and kids in the coach’s area with skills from any age group.
