7:30, 7, and 3 starts.

First two games are on ESPNU, and the final game is on Pac-12. Gut says they take 2 of 3, but with the pitching so shaky I’m not confident in that.

Go Beavs.

    Pitching is suspect for sure, but bunting is supreme!

    Go Woolly Beavers!

    Hope they win the first two. My cousin gets his 2nd start for the quacks Sunday and I’m hoping he dominates the Beavs.
    Otherwise, GoBeavs

        All through jr high and the first couple years of high school he was a beaver fan. WSU, UW, UO, UA and some east coast schools offered but when he visited OSU, Casey didnt offer.

    Ok, who did the animated Build the Dam episode? Lol, it would be better without the Stephen Hawkins voices. I’d imagine that’s the only way to do it though.

      Guilty. I was messing around with this animation program somebody at work showed me. I was just my first attempt, so it should get better if there’s an audience for it. This was the free/non-subscription version. If i pay a little i think it would have better voices. Might be a fun way to tell the recruiting story as we progress through the off season.

      What do you think? Keep it going or no?

        Episode 2 is coming along nicely. The construction team discovers mammoth bones while excavating the Valley Football Center. Hilarity ensues…….although I need to do some major dialogue editing. In it’s current state, i think it’s a little too rated ‘R’ for the best intended audience. I wont post the current link here, but if anybody wants a preview, DM the twitter acct.

    42 pitches, lots in pressure situations. Eckert looks likely to not last more than 5 or 6 innings unless something changes (like getting ahead of the count!).

    Question on the Terrace…Oregon Stater mag from a year ago said plans included allowing fans to completely circumnavigate stadium during games. Was that before they decided to limit to 1500 those that could acess this area? Perhaps original plan was for it to be free flow through for all? Those designs look like maybe there was a ramp in the back that would allow fans to navigate around and then would require taking seversl steps up to get up to actual Terrace level where access could be restricted. However, I am not sure if current designs cut this out. From older image that was curvier it looked like this was below the back raised VIP seating.

            Jack, I am going to tell you something. I know angry keeps this blog as free speech and I am totally fine with that and all but seriously……………

            Shut the fuck up. You wanna know why your posts get thumbed down? It’s not that hard to figure out. You ramble. And ramble. And ramble some more. And most if it makes zero sense whatsoever. Stop pretending you are some saavy, edgy, book smart guy. We get it

            “Jack, you always try to come off as more intellectual than you really are and it makes you come off as retarded in reality.”

            There’s a reason that 10 people gave that a +1. I wasn’t one of them because it’s something I already know.

            I’m not any different in real life. An asshole. And I freely admit that and all my friends would say the same

            I’m sure you’re probably a cool guy while not in front of a keyboard though. Stop trying so hard to be something you obviously aren’t. Be less of a douche here

            Btw… thumbing up is the same as thumbing down. It’s pure laziness. It takes zero thought to agree or disagree with someone. It takes a backbone to say why you do or don’t. Most people just don’t have a spine.

            Hell, most people think someone disagreeing with them is an abridgment of free speech instead of what it truly is, some other schlub’s free speech.

            So do or don’t like, retweet or do whatever laziness affords you in this fast food world. But whatever you do, please do not have any original thoughts. Someone might not like that.

            And since everyone is so butt hurt over my original comment of such stupendous intellect known only to someone with said stupendous intellect, I’ll break it down.

            angry trolls A@A every now and then by just calling him out. It’s hilarious because he doesn’t even put bait on the hook. He just toodles around with a shiny hook, and like a small perch A@A bites on it every time.

            I’m assuming you all know this since I’m the retarded one here. So what needs to be explained to me, the slow kid, is why someone starts complaining about any response to an obvious troll. It doesn’t appear to be a continuation of said troll. A continuation would be to go after the sarcasm with something like:

            Oh A@A! You are so right. Why would OSU ever hire a baseball coach from a D3 school… specifically from the NWC… specifically from Oregon… specifically from Yamhill County? I mean, look what happened the last time we did that. Thanks for saving us from our gross misconceptions with your completely logical thoughts.

            Instead, we act butt hurt. And then we act butt hurt when it’s pointed out we’re acting butt hurt. But now that I know it’s not butt hurtedness but has to do with some secretive club of enlightenment of which me will never get an invitation to join because me retarded, me want to know what smart is.

        I read that the fever is actually destroying the infection, so if you take tylenol, isn’t it just masking that and prolonging the process? i’m not even sure that makes sense since my head weighs 50lbs.

            103 is too high if you’re not 8 years old. 800 mg of ibuprofin will settle it right down. Drink as much water as you can stand, and Jack’s bath plan isn’t bad. I’m more of a cold rag on the head guy.

      Cold bath if you need it… colder the better… chew on ginger root… aspirin and ibuprofin can knock it down, but you want it to run its course, so if you want to take any, take enough to just be comfortable… drink as much as you can… a salty bone broth with no solids is best for digestion and water retention because you’re losing water regardless… peppermint and garlic are also good.

      My favorite is getting in a cold bath with a huge cup of beef/chicken/mushroom broth with copius amounts of ginger and garlic on a hot plate (once in a Mr. Coffee decanter). The water can be cool but still act like that mummy blanket you want when doing the shiver thing. You’d be surprised how comfortable you are just pruning up in tepid water.

        It’s weird, around 8pm I got chills that would not stop, so I took a hot shower. Very bad idea, I think…but I was freezing all the sudden.

        This after noon I put a room temp cloth on my neck/artery and that really helped — learned it from Survivorman!

        Man this is going to be a shitty night.

          Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if you have the bug I caught a few months ago it’ll be a long haul. I was over 103 for 4 full days, and over 104 for a full day. Caught it from my wife who also gave it to my mom; was about the same for all of us.

          First fever over 24 hours I’ve had since I can remember.

          Hydrate like crazy. Get some Gatorade or something (I ran out of electrolytes drinking only water and had a scary 106+ episode). Shower is a great option if you need to cool down. Other than that I agree with your research – the more you force the temp down (Tylenol, etc), the longer the fever will last. IMO best just to let the thing run its course.

          Good luck!

            Thanks, Alex.
            I really hope not. I thought this was food poisoning. Right before I got it, I ate a Mexican tomato and didn’t rinse it too well, so I thought it was that.

            Woke up with a 102 fever, so it’s down a bit, but still pretty bad. I actually slept pretty good considering. Dreamed about playing drums in a band, and that Carlos Rodon pitched a shutout for my fantasy baseball team.

    Tomorrow should be another test of the fatigue factor for Ice, he didn’t spend much time on the basepaths tonight, but did work behind the plate with runners on base most of the game. Hard to sit him down given his D, but maybe move down the lineup?

      Quacks had an unearned run also so going by earned we ( I know, should I be using “we”?) still win 3-2.

      Fehmel was very good after the first third inning. Fanned 6 of 9 and didn’t allow a hit in the last 3 innings.

      KJ saved the day though with the 3 run blast and the great dig on Morisson’s throw with the bases loaded and two down. If that gets by him the Beavs lose.

    Rueck quoted on various off-season topics, says this about recruiting and the added publicity of being in the Final Four,

    “Without those accomplishments, maybe they don’t look, maybe they don’t consider (OSU) and then maybe they miss out. Maybe this is the best place for them, maybe it’s not.

    I like the approach, by several of our coaches, that says it is your loss if you don’t consider/choose OSU, and not a single word about an airport.

    Best case scenario as far as I can see is OSU gets a #3 seeding in a regional somewhere else. They certainly aren’t going to host. In fact, I wouldn’t be shocked if we see ZERO Pac-12 regional hosts this year. The league in general is pretty awful this year. If Utah ends up winning the conference like they’re on track to do, I’d almost bet on it. The league’s looking at maybe four teams in at best, nobody hosting at this point. This baseball team’s been a huge disappointment. But Casey tried to warn us before the season started when he said this didn’t look anything like a top 10 team. Lack of improvement however, is troubling.

            I read an article where the Sun coach indicated that Weisner was a great player and would be playing in the league somewhere, but they decided to keep only 5 guards.

            Like you, I hope she gets picked up.

            Hamblin has played in both her team’s games:
            Sat in a win – 2 minutes, 2 rebounds, 1 point
            Sun in a loss – 1 minute, no stats

    Off topic:

    So Whiskey tried the BBQ/smoked meats from eats and treats in Philomath end of last week. I gotta say, really nothing special. The folks were nice, I will give them that but I’ve had just as good out of a deli at Safeway. The smoked ham was decent but the smoked pork and chicken were just meh. For around $9 a half pound each, don’t waste your time or $$$. If you’re looking for overpriced BBQ that’s so so with nice people on the way to Newport this place is for you.

    If you think this place is the bomb for smoked meat or BBQ, you really need to get out of the pacific northwest

      Ever tried Podnah’s Pit in Portland? I thought that was pretty good. Allegedly, they start smoking meat at 4 am, and that’s what’s available that day; when its gone its gone for the day.

      If you know a better place, let me know. I haven’t tried many BBQ places on the west side. Thanks!

            I don’t know about Wilsonville, but the web site (http://www.slicksqueco.com/) indicates Sisters is home base. Started in Sisters about 7-8 years ago then moved to Bend. Last summer re-opened in Sisters at the the old Papandrea’s Pizza site.

            Sadly Papandrea’s is no more – they had awesome pizza, but the owners retired and shut it down.

            Can’t blame you for not being “into the whole stopping in Sisters thing”. I live 8 miles east of Sisters and, although I try to spend locally, I still have to deal with the summer traffic for Quilt Show and Rodeo and Gem Show and, and, and. It’s a nightmare sometimes.

            I always said that the city fathers wanted to put barriers up so that you could get into town but couldn’t leave. Would have worked before they renamed “Hotel Sisters” “to “Bronco Billy’s” (if you catch the Eagles reference…)

        You guys ever tried making your own bbq? Seriously, anyone can make better bbq than any restaurant. Restaurants have to make large quantities and try to space out their finish times to cover several hours of serving. Most of the time it gets put into a steamer before it comes to your table, if not it’s likely dry or over cooked. Just get yourself a smoker or a Big Green Egg and some chunks of fruit wood and smoke yourself some good bbq. It doesn’t get any better.

            Make a cinder block pit. Use corrugated metal sheets for the lid. The only real expense is going to be the grate and a lintel (you can probably find one or both at a re-use store). There are also some great ideas out there separating the hot box from a smoke chamber made of rough hewn cedar.

            Both would cost less.

            I don’t disagree that people can make their own and be as good as or better than some of the shops we’re talking about. But doing it consistently is the trick. The good pit masters will tell you everything about how to get the meat just right. They just don’t share their recipes for brines, rubs and sauces. If you learn to do a brisket correctly, you can yank a rub mix off the net and make that sucker sing. Remember that a good brisket needs no sauce.

            That’s why those who I think are best (around here) are the ones on the verge of or still running a truck. They’re in their infancies. When one of them starts serving up a good boudin, juicy link or pork belly, then I know we got some good stuff going on.

            We’re a couple generations away from that. But it is why making your own pit can be rewarding. You can make your own cuts and grinds (and sticks and jerkies).

            You can certainly make your own smoker or kamado cooker, but the challenge will be maintaining a consistent temperature. I can dial in the vents on the BGE and maintain 225 deg for at least 10 hours before I might have to add more lump. With a DYI setup you’ll likely have to make constant adjustments to maintain the temp. I’m not willing to babysit my smoker for that long when I can go play golf instead ????

      I remember back when our high school football coach issued our gear. And then told us to go home and run our heads into things to make sure the fit was right. And they checked for scratches the next day to make sure we did so. High school coaches are the worst. If this tech can help high school kids, then it’s a great thing. I had major doubts when I read the headlines, but seeing the “engineering” helps some.

            Because I’m sure he meant it in a loving way.

            And you also missed the disgust of te responding poster.

            There’s just all sorts of fun to be had here.

            So now we have to ask why you left those tabs open when you posted that screenshot?

            Quick… a bible verse will save you.

            I can’t help but think of the In Living Color sketch with the Senator confiscating a painting of a landscape because he thinks he sees naked sweaty boys.

    Pettibonehead: Can you use your autographed portraits for a fund raiser for “Victory through Helmets?” Once the team exits the new locker room, they’ll need new semi-inflated helmets to run through. I suggest you charge enough so that three helmets can be purchased to match whatever “lid” the kids are wearing on game day, black, orange, white.

    The old fog machine should be good for a few more seasons so don’t worry about funding its replacement. Yet.

        Whatever happened to that anyway? “designed and developed,” but never used for anything other than goal post padding?

        Maybe they’ll use it to pad the exterior wall of the lockeroom so that when some player exits the end zone they don’t run directly into concrete. Cyclone fencing was bad enough….

    Victory through Valley is a disappointment. Decreasing capacity from 45,674 to 43,363!

    OSU had a great opportunity to capitalize, IMO they are failing to make this a game changer on the recruiting front.

      So we’ll have around 2000 less empty seats. Seems like a good idea to decrease capacity. Thats 2000 less duck fans in our stadium for the civil war too.

    The newest episode in the Oregon State/Lindsay Schnell epic is about halfway complete. I won’t have time to finish it until after the weekend, but wanted to give you all a sneak preview. Looking for suggestions as to which Corvallis locations you’d like to see Lindsay try and take out, and maybe even which people you’d like to see her tangle with and possibly devour.

    Never try to take away Lindsay’s bones…..
