Beav fielders look like they're wearing 1930s bucklebacks out there. You'd think the gloves would be broken in by now; slap some lanolin on 'em, boys.

Go Beavs.

    Beavers lead 1-0 after a 1/2 inning, but after getting the 1-0 lead and a runner on 2nd and no outs, Beavers executed extremely poorly and don’t get the 2nd run.

    Tough strikeout there by Hayes. Defense killing this team again. Sounds like there are a ton Beavers fans at the game. Conforto has done nothing for us today. At least they scratched out one run, inning would’ve been much different if Peterson would have beaten out that sac bunt. Things not looking good.

    Losing Grace hurts on the recruiting front, but he was also in charge of the scout team in practice, so on an x’s and o’s front, maybe it’s not a bad thing. Robinson’s at the Final Four so maybe he can pick up a good x’s and o’s guy, particularly on defense and someone with connections outside of Princeton/Brown/Northwestern. The ship is not sinking, but it needs to be turned in the right direction fast!

        What I meant was someone that CR didn’t pick up from his connections to those three schools. Maybe someone with Pac-12 experience. I like Bob Cantu and don’t know if Enfield will keep him at SC. Grace did want out of Corvallis as he’s been looking for other jobs for a couple of years, but I don’t think he’ll be a major loss for the program like others think.

      Curious – it appears at least a couple of other schools were interested in him. Why?
      Questions: recruiting only – AAU connections, what are his strong suits in terms of teaching basics, any x and o abilities?

        I personally didn’t (don’t) like the guy… at least here. I got the feeling from him that he hated Corvallis and OSU, and maybe that’s why I didn’t like him. He’s been trying to get out of town for a couple years, and the x’s and o’s showed in how the players responded to him.

        You’d also never think he had any recruiting abilities if you talked to him. Maybe because it was obvious he hated Oregon when he talked. I guess what people don’t realize is that recruiting “ability” in hoops has for years meant recruiting “access,” and football is becoming similar with the same street agent shit.

          Thx. Shall I conclude then that he’s been looking, it’s not as if he’s so great that he was being sought ? Let’s hope someone incredible – even if it’s a stepping stone – but an enthusiastic one – can come aboard.

            Yes… he was looking. Irons in the fire for him were also at UNM and USC.

            He was not staying.

            I’m thinking he wants to end up back in Phoenix. And he may get his chance once Sendek gets fired next year (if Carson goes to the draft… which he really should do). The guy just seems so pretentious about being in Corvallis. And I know that’s only a peripheral view. But sometimes that view gets voiced. And sometimes the head man hears something about one of his dudes a couple years ago (or more recent) and suggests he leave.

            You give me a pick, I take Litzenberger. I’ve heard someone suggest Cantu. That’s nice. I think he did one helluva job as an interim. And I think he deserves a head job. I’ve also heard a friend (who knows nothing about hoops… obviously) suggest Tim Grgurich. Oh… if only Tex Winter wasn’t dead… we’d be Tim’s destination for sure. That makes more sense than the suggestion. Trust Me. False death would be better than a lie.

    Wow B-ball news. Any chance BDC is gone before the end of next season when we will be looking for a new coach? I have to admit the whole process is kind of fun for the fan base. Goph’s hired Pitino’s kid and he hit a home run at the press conference. Sounds just like his dad.

    BDC probably gets fired if CR can’t get it done. I’m still supporting Robinson, but barely. I also know that BDC gets canned by Ed Ray and I don’t think the guy has the balls to do that. It will be interesting to see who CR gets to replace Grace.

    Ray doesn’t care and I wish he’d just come out and admit it. Ed Ray doesn’t care about OSU athletics. As for Robinson and Co., expectations are going to be high next year to succeed and get the program back to the dance and they should be. Talent is not an issue (with the exception of Starks), but CR’s inability to close out these games is concerning. One more year or it’s time to move on. Now on to baseball!!

      It is concerning how many games the Beavers lost late, but I think with that the players have to win a couple of those close games to get confidence that they can win those. Like with the USC game, they were getting it done on offense but then Moreland has a brain fart late to lose them the game. They found different ways to lose games that they should have won. Craig just really needs to work with them and get them to realize that they need to protect the ball better. They do that and some of those losses become wins.

Even if he doesn’t pitch too well, I’d like to see Taylor Starr and Painton relieve him. Offense will need to score some runs, would be nice if Conforto-Davis-Hayes show up.

        I really like his feet and his play action. And he has a snap on his release that really levels out his passes. So i wonder how well that translates to the next level since he doesn’t really have a great arm but has great timing. One thing I don’t like is his pocket wind-up. He leans backward and relies on that snap to get the ball to his target. I’d rather see momentum into the motion instead of into that hitch.

        I think he has good potential. I like Kempt more. But if i had to peg Mitchell I’d say he looks a lot like John Brodie.

          Yeah, he had a great slider going, needed it with having a mid 80’s fastball today. If he can get the velocity back up to 89-90 with the great slider he flashed today, he’s gonna be tough and with Boyd and Moore, can make the rotation be what we thought it would be in the beginning of the year.

            Eric Sorenson puts Ben’s fastball at “low 90’s”. Not sure what to make of this, we’ve seen national writers be mistaken before. Ex: he says Tyler Smith “when (sic) down swinging…”, ugh, must have missed that, didn’t hear anything about a swing.

            I tend to trust Aaron Fitt a bit more with how guys looked on the radar gun and Sorenson missing some obvious details is concerning. Good news for the Beavers though is Tyler Smith will be back in the starting lineup on Friday against Utah and will be ready to go. This puts Peterson back at 2nd where he belongs, Keyes back at 3rd and Jake behind the plate full time again. This gives a tremendous boost to OSU’s offense and defense and Jace Fry will be back very soon. OSU is loaded with arms.

        Honestly, I don’t think it was a huge mistake. Every coach when they lose a playmaker want him for an extra year. My thought with redshirting is if the freshman is in a position battle with a upper classmen and it’s a toss up, redshirt the freshman. If the freshman is better than the upper classman, play the freshman. The best players should be on the field. Does anyone recall who Wheaton beat out in the depth chart?

          Think he beat out Catchings, but he was the 4th or 5th receiver and did a lot of his damage with the game in hand. I just didn’t think it was worth it to blow the redshirt 4 years ago. He wasn’t a starter and wasn’t gonna make a big impact, everyone knew that.

            Well I was able to find a depth chart, the internet can be a great thing sometimes. The one I found had him 5th at the flanker receiver position. But I am guessing that this was a pre-season because he was so low on it.

            I should have made my post earlier a little more clear, your best players should be in the two-deep depth chart, regardless of year in school, because you are an injury away and you want your best replacement. And my guess is that he was considering I never really heard of any of the players at the position.

            We had Reggie Dunn?

      If Fry can be back in a couple weeks, that would be big. He would probably get midweek starts and gradually will build his arm strength up. If Wetzler is struggling towards the end of the regular season, Fry would be able to step right in to the weekend rotation.
