    Did Casey call for a bunt again with 1 out and a man on first? So 2 outs, man on second…~20% probability of scoring, instead of letting a .390 hitter swing away and go for the big inning. Good one.

        Does this post have anything to do with South Carolina and OSU being matched up in the big dance?

        If it does, I need a definition for “pitching” sent my way. I’m sure it has nothing to do with anyone who fucking wears a flat brim ball cap… fucking piss me off and make your stupid statement all at once why don’t you?

        Yeah… there’s some mud in there.

        Flat-brimmed ball caps are the sign of El Stupido giving up and letting morons act like morons. Or they’re just the dumbest ever fashion statement… just… no… well behind leg warmers.

      I’m not sure Big G starts. I wonder if Kone starts if he is fully recovered and Eubanks still starts? Is there any information on whether Gomis applies for a hardship or is that just speculation? If Gomis can return to last years form, that is five fouls that WT has in his pocket if he wants and some solid defensive capabilities.

      D1 has the play by play detailing how the “best staff” gave up 5 runs in the first inning. It didn’t have a lot to do with the caliber of the competition.

      1 bases loaded HBP and 4 bases loaded BB’s, during which there were exactly 3 strikes thrown….to 4 batters!

      Doesn’t define the season or guarantee anything about Beavs vs schmucks, but interesting nontheless.

    Derrick Bruce went from disappointing to best fighter’s personality I have seen at OSU since GP in 2-3 games when he was needed to step up. Seriously loved his attitude of just getting it done and chipping away time after time to make the team forge a winner’s identity. He keeps it up I am close to wanting someone to make an awe inspiring tribute video. Kid has grit and is turning into a force of nature. I was wrong about his potential. He, Stevie and Tinkle will be the anchors next year and Bruce having the mentality like vs Cal may make him one of the most crucial pieces in if team can return to the Big Dance again next year.

      I don’t think anyone thought Bruce had that type of game in him. He hadn’t shown that type of game all year. He threw up a lot of bricks early in the year. One fact I forgot about him is that he’s older. He finished HS in 2014 so he’ll be a 21 year old sophomore.

      Things to like for next year,
      1. His vision in the last two games was excellent.
      2. Guys will have to respect him out to the three point line, opening up the lane for drives and kickouts.
      3. His speed will get by a lot of guys.
      4. He’ll be the #3/4 guy in the offense next year. No pressure to repeat last games performance.

      To be fair, he’s got a lot to work on.
      1. He’s very close to being called for palming the ball.
      2. He can be reckless. A little like Cunningham when he first came in.
      3. Will need to find a mid range jumper or floater. Can’t be just a 3pt specialist.
      4. Dribbles a hair too much.

      Hey, if that following game is against the ducks, then an easier path after a winnable 2nd rounder….

    Four number one seeds tomorrow SHOULD be

    Kansas (Big 12 regular season and tourney champion, number 1 RPI)
    Oregon (Pac-12 regular season and tourney champion, number 2 RPI)
    North Carolina (ACC regular season and tourney champion, number 5 RPI)
    Villanova (Big East regular season champion, lost in tourney title game, number 4 RPI)

    Much to the chagrin of many but sorry, Oregon’s entire body of work is very deserving of a number one seed. No one deserves to be a number 1 seed over those 4 teams

    Beavs will be anywhere from an 8-10 seed but I’ll predict a 9 seed either in the East or Southeast. Hoping for a matchup with Texas Tech. Those guys can be beat. Here’s to tomorrow!

      Hey, fucknut. I look at it this way, 26 years of futility should be ending here in a few hours and you can’t do shit about it. 34 teams are going to lose in the play in/first round and if it’s the Beavs, I can live with it. Your schtick is getting old because it’s not really clever or imaginative. Giving shit is great if it’s funny, keep that in mind.

    Same school produced stream and, pretty sure, Jim Wilson helping out Jay on radio. PDX radio changes to AM620.

    Fun(?) Fact…….yesterday there were only 6 BB’s in the game, only 2 of those were by Beav pitchers! Zone?, Skill? you be the judge.

      It wasn’t Horton who said “best staff”, correct? Wasn’t it a couple of smart ass players? Bulletin board stuff, I’m glad they said it. Also, something about a guarantee of Omaha if I remember correctly. Thin line between confindence and idiocy sometimes.

        You are correct, Horton has been much more judicious in his comments.

        The “best staff” thing comes from Cole Irvin who has been quoted as saying, “Two or three runs is all we’re going to need this year, because we have the best pitching staff in the country,” … “Our hitters know it, so the pressure is off them…” Young Mr. Irvin has also said, “We are going to Omaha this year,” … “I want to make that statement clear.”

        BTW: The batters today did their part, scoring 2 runs in the 8th. However, the “best staff” (four of them were used today) gave up 5 to complete the sweep by Miss State.

    The more I read about OSU likely making the Dance, the more it pisses me off on how we got to this point. 26 years!? The one comparison I heard is the equivalent to missing a bowl game for the last 26 years. Of course, we all know about the infamous 28 year streak. With so much parity in hoops, it’s even more baffling. Anyways, I like OSU at a 8-9 seed as they have a good chance at winning that game whoever it may be. I also like the fact that OSU went toe-to-toe with Kansas even if it was only for one half. I think it gives our players confidence they can compete with anyone.

      I’m as happy as the next guy that the Beavers are improving and hopefully in The Dance, but it’s amazing to me that they could go 26 years plus now without a winning record in conference play also. You would think just with dumb luck, they could eek out a 10-8 over the course of two and a half decades.

      Lunar discreet has the Beavs a 9 seed in the east playing VCU. The worst thing about an 8-9 seed is the next step is a 1 seed, in this case the Tar Heels.

      Getting a 26 year monkey off the program’s back is nice definitely doesn’t feel like a deep run is very realistic.

    Some women’s basketball recruiting news

    I’d say Oregon has the advantage because of her brother but the Beavs can say that the Ducks haven’t made the ncaas in 10 years. If I were Rueck, I’d sell her on Jamie Weisner’s role. She could be better than Weisner since the program is now mature.

      “She doesn’t want the fanfare,” Sopak said. “If she could just drive to whatever school she picks and show up on the first day of school, that would be her choice.”

      I’d be very surprised if she chose UO based on that statement. That culture doesn’t mesh with her belief system.

    Ice didn’t seem to get rid of the ball very quickly, but it was quick enough for a high throw on the 1b side to cut down the runner at 2nd for the second out of the ninth.
    Beavs up against it now, only 2 outs left after Nobach’s K to lead off the b9.

    Losing is never a good thing but maybe some good will come of it. As the last game before conference play starts a small dose of reality can be turned into a positive.
