24.Jan.2014 Lack of Excitement around Football Recruiting. Upcoming Baseball Season.

I’ve been following recruiting closely for over a decade, and never has there been such little interest.

Curious to hear some theories as to why that is.

Some theories that come to mind:

  • Losing season has everyone down.
  • Same caliber of players the Beavers have always recruited, so there’s no obvious upgrade.
  • Lack of star power, and no big name guys realistically in the mix.
  • Stale and stagnant program, so fans are not only disinterested in recruiting, but disinterested overall.

Any thoughts? I’m shocked. At this rate Mamma Machado, and her reportedly douche bag husband, will have to look for new work soon!
——————————————–
Something I am excited about is the baseball season. The lady and I are going to the games at UCLA this year.

Beavs are ranked #4 to start the year. Brooks Hatch has some decent notes.

    The buffet is tweeting Langsdorf has been offered an NFL job. Is this some sort of joke? A parting shot to us by the fatty????

    Source close to Oregon State informs me that OC Danny Langsdorf has been offered job as QB coach for New York Giants. Didn’t see that coming

      OOOOOH! OOOOOH! OOOOOH!

      Never mind.

      He should take it. It makes sense professionally to move around as a coach. A decent year there would lead to an OC job anywhere in the NFL.

      He’s been lucky to have been employed in one job in a job field where most guys are fired.

      It would be a breath of fresh air for everyone.

        If he coaches Eli to two or less INTs against Seattle next year, he’s golden.

      The same source expects him to take the job.

        It just can’t be true.

        We can’t possibly be forced to have a fresh face at OC. I’m guessing Locey comes back to the staff because it’s easy.

        If we go the usual route and hire Linfield’s HC or OC (same person), then I won’t be upset. I like Joe Smith… if not for the value of getting to say how unique I think his name is. I just like Leipold that much more. I’m ready for some slobber-knocker football dammit!

      Figures it’s a year late for Jonathan Smith. Luck o’ the Beavs.
      Seriously, this news has me more pumped than a dozen 5-star recruits signing.

    Well most of the recruiting was done by fall. They had what 20 guys committed by the end of Nov? Usually the coaching staff is scrambling at this point so the anxiousness of trying to get recruits is gone this year. Add the fact that none of the guys are special and none of the remaining targets are prized recruits leaves nothing to talk about.

    rivals is now just saying things to garner any interest in their site.

    Baseball still hasn’t published a roster….I wonder why that is? Has the final roster cut down happened yet?

      I’m interested in the baseball roster as well. We have a lot of good baseball players on campus right now.

      I’m interested to see how we shore up our middle defense and who our third P will be. Do Eden and Fox take that role? Is Fry moving to closer? Is Schultz a perennial long reliever? Will we be deep enough to have two set-up men?

      Replacing J.Rod will be a big factor, IMHO.
      Diamond Dinner was last night, maybe some roster updates will be coming in the next week.

    Seems like it’s probably because there has been 1 good season in the past 4.

    This bad stretch comes after the best 4 years OSU football has had in half a century.

    So I’d say it’s losing season(s) and stagnant ( or declining) program.

    All this while the Ducks have had their best 5 year stretch ever.

    I think that’s the reason for OSU fan apathy.

      Yeah…..The ducks take off to the top tier and Riley slip-slides away. And, we seem to never have a coup and snag a top guy or two.

    Just saw this pop up! I would get my hopes up. However, I will wait and see if he takes and who replaces him at OC.

    Sounds like Kevin Gilbride (Cavs’ brother in law) is the connection with the Giants.

      What? We just looked at the schedule a few days ago, and it said in LA. Need to recheck.

      Edit: Crap, I meant @ USC.
