Beavs 5-5 over their last 10. Reverting to the mean in action, but I think they get a sweep this weekend.

    Last 13 games were the toughest part of the schedule. Couple that with the injury to Smith and .500 is about as good as I expected. Schedule lightens up the next few weeks with 3 straight series the Beavs should win and a couple non con freebies thrown in. Good time to put another streak together while the rest of the conference beats each other up. Beavs should start to pull away from the pack a little going into the Stanford and Oregon series.

      Lots to encourage Beavs fans along with the schedule; Hayes and Davis coming around at the plate and the return of Smith pretty much head up my list.

    What I would like to see is the Beavers take these next 11 games and go on a tear that would put them in a prime spot that lands not only a regional, but a SUPER regional!! I agree that they should win a lot if not all of these games coming up and I think they will give Oregon a taste of their own medicine at PK park later on

    OT but another thing I would like to see is CR hire Bob Cantu as the new assistant at OSU as he was let go by USC earlier this week. Article today on Oregonlive.com on the assistant search and CR’s plans… Interesting!

      I was thinking Cantu would be a pipe dream because I thought he did well enough as an interim to get a head nod somewhere. But people keep mentioning his name like they know what he’s about. And I know some of the people I’ve talked to think a basketball is oblong and has one continuous seam.

      I still want Litzenberger though.

      And he comes through with an RBI single and advances to 2nd on a bobble by the centerfielder. That was a classic example of why Keyes is so good in those spots. He wasn’t chasing early in the count, he made Chapman make perfect pitches and when Chapman made a mistake he capitalized. Beau Day follows with an RBI single and it’s 7-1 Beavers

        Yeah, more than likely thought they could catch the first baseman napping but the likelihood of that working wasn’t high as Casper isn’t the fastest of guys. If it’s Andy Peterson or Tyler Smith that’s probably a run.

Apparently he has looked really good in side sessions.

        Murray seems to be connected to the same people CR is connected to. Remember he was a GA for Miller at UA a couple years ago. And he was an assistant for the ever-rising Dan Hurley. And CR seems to have a very good relationship with someone named Hurley given recruiting results.

        Along those lines though, i would rather see us steal someone like Travis Steele. If we’re going to be looking for a new coach after next year or sometime soon, then we go out and overpay this kid just so we keep him on later.

        Or…

        He’s good enough he helps get CR over the top and gets hired on somewhere as a head like he eventually will anyway.

      They’re not sure what caused the explosions yet. And there have been none of the usual “so-and-so has claimed responsibility” reports. It may just be an equipment malfunction somewhere.

          The Tea Party would be considered a terrorist attack today. In fact, I think the Crown labelled revolutionaries and all involved as terrorists at that time too.

          But that particular “attack” was against a single corporation. Tea Partiers actually stayed during the event to sweep the decks of the merchant ships and to fake the lines after they were released. They did this because the ships who were contracted to carry the East India’s Tea (which was not taxed like independent shippers’ cargo was taxed, thus the argument FOR equal taxation) were locally berthed and the only reason they carried that cargo was because of the monopoly dictated by EIC and the Crown.

          That would have been a “single issue” attack. Usually single issue attacks go out of their way to not hurt anyone because they’re trying to win hearts and minds as well as directly thwart what they deem an injustice.

          The Marathon bombs look like they are a “right wing” attack. At least that’s what the general speculation is. Right wing domestics like to use multiple intermittent devices around the date April 19 and are less likely to claim responsibility for an event.

          The third type is “international terrorism,” whose actors are as likely to be at ground zero as their leaders are to almost immediately claim responsibility.

            He can’t have it where results are concerned. Tree spiking has maimed one person in the 100 plus years it was used as a “tool” of “ecoterrorists,” and they promptly stopped doing it because of the bad press involved. Supposedly they marked the trees they spiked so as to avoid such injury, but someone didn’t get the message. The one injury that did occur is thought to be a “false flag” incident, which is why they stopped spiking.

            PETA? I’m not sure what he’s talking about there. Breaking and entering and releasing lab animals is goofy, but I don’t think it leans toward the outrage he’s trying to convey. I think he’s talking about ALF and ELF and property damage and arson. While injury was never intended, arson can still kill.

            Take the other side of the single issue attacks. Abortion clinic patients, personnel and doctors are the primary targets. Sometimes first responders are targets as well.

            Idiot boy started a war of aggression against Iraq. It was against every UN treaty. It was against our very nature as the USA. And we’ve not exactly been a non-warlike nation.

            He committed war crimes in the process of denigrating everything sacred about US foreign policy and promises. There is zero doubt about this.

            There is also only about .0023% chance he ever gets tried, let alone convicted for his crimes.

            But at least we can look back on idiot boy’s “presidency” and discover new egregious acts daily.

            And then you go back over a century to complete your thought? Why not throw in Daniel Shays, John Brown and Western Pennsylvania farmers and distillers of the late 18th century?

          Is that a joke? You honestly see something courageous about attempting to carry out the mass murdrer of innocent civilians? These attacks are not on military personnel, but civilians attempting to mind their own business and go about their daily lives. If they really wanted to use violence to fight for their cause there is an entire organization called the U.S. Military which is actively hunting these guys down on a daily basis. The terrorists can take their beef up with them if they want to be ‘courageous’. Instead they choose to hide.

          Regarding Washington and Jefferson, if you can find an example of them slaughtering innocent civilians I would say the same thing about them. There is nothing glorious about wiping out unarmed people.

          I don’t know how you can compare what Washington and Jefferson did to what happened today. Also your Boston Tea Part claim doesn’t work either, how many people died or were injured because of that? the only that was even damaged was the merchandise on the ships. Whoever did this attacked completely innocent people, that’s cowardly.

    Also I’ve seen a couple times on Twitter reports of Sean Mannion scrambling quite a bit this spring.

    Warner Strausbaugh ?@WStrausbaugh 19m
    Sean Mannion just scrambled up the middle for 20 yards. It was “statue-esque”

      That doesnt sound good…..our defense sounds leaky or slow?

        And it’s probably also a little easier when the quarterback can be touched.

    Saw this pic on the Oregonlive website. 2nd comment says “It was the M&M”
    Gotta love the Portland hipsters and their ability to make a joke out of everything.
