            …and good beer it was! Perfect Oregon spring day at the Oregon Garden! Met a few people from out of state that were visiting on business who where all but calling their families back home telling them go pack up all belongings and move to Oregon. Between the weather, selection of outstanding beer, and the ladies finally able to shed their winter clothing and show off a little it was a great day.

      Wynn just seems a little nuts. I think it's awesome. Hopefully the DT depth is good enough this year where Wynn can stay at DE instead of moving to DT on third and long situations.

    San Diego St. start time has been set:  4:30 PDT.  Perfect, in my estimation.  Late

    enought for some solid tailgating; early enough to visit a caberet or two afterwards.

        I strongly disagree, this is great news.

        Starks was our worst player last year.  I know most on here hated Burton, but even Burton was slighly better than Starks due to a relatively solid FG% and good rebounding.  Starks was terrible and any kind of upgrade at PG will greatly benefit the team. 

        I think CR realized this.

            There wasn't much production from Starks the last part of the season, this would likely continue if he stuck around as his head wasn't into it.  I wish him well wherever he ends up.

      Since the two are mutually exclusive, the question seems a little silly. That being said, I have yet to see OSU fire any coach just for losing. We've let them go when their contracts expire. But we don't just can coaches unless they do something wrong personally.

    I'm not sure why anyone here has angst about Starks leaving other than depth and experience. While I appreciate his efforts over the years and like the kid as a person, his play felll way off this past year. And he was just getting in the way and killing runs more than he was being productive. It became apparent that he was not a PG, and his size prohibits him moving to the SG spot.

    I wonder what George Dohrmann is saying about this.

    For me Mannion doesn't look like he did against UCLA or AZ.  He was lights out in those games.  His passes lack a little zing.  And for anyone who watched it on TV, be glad you don't have the monster head ache I have.  In my 57 years I have not been exposed to that much loud obnoxious rap music ever.  Wish we would have known we would have brought hearing protection.  Hopefully next year none of our QBs will get player of the week.  Our last three QBs have sucked since making POTW.

    After the baseball game I wondered over to Reser but the music drove me out pretty quick. Cooks with a couple of nice grabs and Chris Brown with a good run on a screen. Best catch of the day was Max Gordon with the diving catch in the fifth. The baseball team hit the ball well today and collected 20 hits.

    On the draft, surprised Poyer and Jonathan Franklin from UCLA still available after 3 rounds.

    Wheaton and Poyer came out in a draft high in WRs and CBs, and I think they'll outlast many of them and end up making their teams happy.

        A guy at my son's baseball practice was telling me that Poyer had relatively poor "strength numbers' at whatever combines he did (I don't follow this stuff closely) and that is hurting his draft status.  Don't know if that's really a factor for a CB?

      Good teams take value late. Consistently bad teams chase measurables. The Raiders come to mind.

      The Iggles take Barkley to start the 4th. I'm thinking Chipster is going to run a hurry up like the Pats do, not primarily a hurry up read option.

          This one is confusing. Even if his speed is a factor, he's the prototypical tweener NFL teams should be looking for in a nickle package. His speed keeps him from being a boundary corner. But the same could be said of most CB's taken before him. And almost none of them have his hips or his ball recognition. And I guarantee none of them are ST specialists on both sides like he is, an intangible which should warrant an upgrade for a draftee. In other words, he's a football player to the Nth degree.

          Compare this to Hardin. Hardin was a little better in run support, but he was vastly inferior in coverage. And they were equals in ST. In fact, I'd give Poyer the plus there. Hardin was really not a good CB, and I see how his measurables make him a S prospect and of different value. But with the NFL looking to transition to a place where tweeners need to be covering inside instead of pressuring the run, Poyer has a lot more value.

          What I read from some sites is the whole arrest thing for trespass in the second or third degree. Most reads look like he went back to a place he was banned fromas a minor. None of them mention his charges were dismissed. And even a lousy lawyer would have had them dismissed. He returned to a bar when he was "of age." He was either told he could not enter and was "detained," which would make "detention" kidnapping at that point. Or he was allowed entry and "detained" once someone somewhere knew who he was and disliked him because his girlfriend had a crush on him… constituting an institutional welcome to the premises… meaning trespass was out the door.

          i've even seen some stories tie in the fight that happened at the shit hole a month later with three other players. I have to wonder how stupid some of these NFL "scouts" are that they can't do any homework.

          And I have to wonder if I can get paid to do that job based on what I think is the stupid stupid reason for Poyer to get bumped four rounds. I can provide context better than they can if that's the leak on him.

            I think Poyer would be a great free safety if not cb; just add 10lbs. Maybe he's a bust, but I think you draft a guy with that much passion and i.q. There were many more larger stretches (e.g. Jets taking that Missouri DT) and in earlier rounds than Poyer. I think teams get an idea in their head and speculate/fall in love with it…it's the lure of measurables/potential.

            Some teams buy measurables and nothing else. But that doesn't explain this pick at all.

            Jordan Poyer was radioactive for some reason. And it can't be because of his arrest. That would be the major -est fail of all time for every NFL scout out there. The Philadelphia Eagles picked him in the seventh round because Chip Kelly wanted a steal.

            Maybe I give you more hits by saying:

    Really adds to the importance of the series coming up May 17 in Eugene.  I'll be "off the grid" backpacking in the Snake River Canyon for most of that series.  Counting on good info (and results) on AB when I return!

    S-I on the Eagles draft grade and Poyer:

    "Until we know more about Chip Kelly’s plans, let’s just chalk the Matt Barkley pickup to finding a potential first-round QB at No. 98. The rest of this class figures to be more important in 2013. No one more so than OT Lane Johnson, who has the athleticism to thrive under Kelly. TE Zach Ertz could be a dangerous weapon in this offense, too. Defensively, expect DT Bennie Logan to help and CB Jordan Poyer to possibly prove the steal of the draft. Grade: B-plus"

        New York Jets

        The first round was disappointing. DT Sheldon Richardson is kind of miscast in the Jets’ current defense, and CB Dee Milliner broke the rule that you don’t try to replace a player you just traded away by drafting someone at the same position. G Brian Winters has a nasty streak and Rex Ryan will like that. But, of course, the spotlight will shine brightest on QB Geno Smith. Is he the answer New York needs at that position? Or are there ample reasons to justify his drop into Round 2? Grade: C

          HopefulBeav….It seems to me that you are speaking in "broad generalities" when you talk about all liberals doing or not doing something… or did I miss something specific there?  

          My observation is that conservatives come equipped with their own set of facts that often are, in fact, untrue.  Such as tax cuts create jobs.   

          Your very name "HopefulBeav" indicates a willingness to indulge in wishful thinking. 

          As pedantic as Jack can be his lengthy epistles are usually well reasoned.  Not that   I have ever read one in it's entirerity.  JB

          PS:  Who would ever think that I would be defending Jack?

            Strange bedfellows indeed.

            To be fair, his sweeping generalization is about one broad generality, that of idiot boy being an entitled turd of monumental proportions who would have done better for himself and our country if he had instead tried to make mistakes because he surely would have failed at that as well. Never mind that he accepts that Obama is not a "liberal" and is also a "conservative" worthy of critique. If sides are to be taken, I am on the other side of center from the two. So I guess he got that correct.

            So what if he conflates other more specific points (which might not support his claim) to this one post? And who cares that he claims nobody uses facts, but he would never check them anyway if they were used?

            Facts are what is known to exist or be true, not a conjecture.    Why would one debate a "fact"?     Fact — rocks are solid objects…..debate this?

            But "tax cuts create jobs" is an opinion or conjecture, not a fact.    It may be an opinion that is supported by facts (stats), but still not a fact.       Just sayin….

            It will always be a correlation. Like most things financial/political, it is hard to confirm causation. Yet, people mistake the correlation for causation, then puff their chest and strutt around as "informed" citizens.

            Since there isn't even a correlation, they can't even do that. Even the seemingly more benign claim that tax cuts "increase revenues" is a falsity, a canard, one giant cynical lie.

            Huge governement spending, on the other hand…. Not saying it's a good thing, but when more money than ever is pumped into the economy, more is also collected. I think we can all agree that 10% of 2 is more than 15% of 1.

            Yeah… most of us grew up in a world where you had to show your work, not just blurt out an answer… with a conclusion completely divested of the answer itself.

            When people claim that 3+4=x+y+c+z+a+b-x-a-c-b-z (when y is something "I" like), and y=0.2….

            Maybe the five variables cited were just diversions. Or maybe they were 6.8 of 7.

            It is easy to notice that in the daily financial news, whatever is visibly going on is cited as the reason for whatever stock market action takes place.    Yet this is really nonsense.    If the market were that easy to predict, we would all be rich.

          I haven't noticed that with many liberals, but definately the opposite happens with conservatives.  Conservatives tend to make an initial statement, attempt to reference facts to support their statement, talk themselves into a corner when challenged on their "facts", then make generalized statements, then they stop the discussion.

      Adding another quality experienced pitcher to the mix will be good for this team, it seems like Casey has lost confidence in a lot of the bullpen guys.  I am a little concerned that our starters are logging a few too many innngs and may get worn down by the time the tournament rolls around.  It would be nice to see some blow outs this next series and let Moore, Boyd & Wetzler throw around 6 innings each.

        Casey has always let his starters go deep into games and as long as their pitch counts don't exceed 110 pitches I'm fine with them going all the way. Won't be an issue down the road. Gonna be nice having an ace coming out of the bullpen. Don't think they should put him in the weekend rotation cause the weekend rotation is elite and rolling, but coming out of the bullpen he would be a beast and makes the Beavers even tougher. He can also be your #4 starter for the postseason which is very important in the regionals and College World Series if you drop a game.

    Anybody know if thos means he is automatically qualified to play now? Or is there still a chance he greyshirts? I’m not very well informed on how grey shirting even works. If eligible, does this mean another roster spot needs to be vacated? It sounded like Riley was planning to have to wait through academic eligibility issues with this guy originally. Big congrats either way to Lawrence. He’s proving the doubters wrong and I think thats great quality and will translate well to his game.

    Jared Nickens is visiting this weekend. At 6'7" I think he's more of a SF prospect than a SG. But the kid does have a decent handle. And he knows how to use his length on the defensive end. His style is a throwback. He reminds me in style and build of a young Alex English. He was a 2013 prospect but reclassified to 2014.
