Smh I gotta know what that NCAA tourney feels like ASAP
7:50 PM – 15 Mar 2014

The best way to describe Bob DeCarolis is “asleep at the switch“.

Good ol’ Bob, counting beans as his field turns to dust.

    That’s a cogent statement…..want to see what the ncaa tourney feels like. He (and the other players) knows his coach cant cut it. Expect more transfers.

    …and this may be the end for CR. EVen if BDC cant afford to fire him this year, he sure as hell will have to next year.

    I would describe BDC as wandering along the tracks — I dont think he wants to be near the switch.

    I have no idea how you would do something like this but I think it’d be interesting see an actual cost analysis of firing Robinson. BDC says we can’t afford to fire him but what is the cost of not firing him? Next year will likely break this year’s lack of attendance record and I can’t imagine much OSU basketball merchandise flying off the shelves when the MBB team is one of the least popular teams on campus. One would think firing Robinson sooner rather than later could be seen as an investment in getting people excited about the basketball team again instead of one more season of alienating what’s left of the fan base.

        That would be new. I can’t recall any coach being at the draft with their former player. It would only work if ESPN gave MR a shout out so people would be able to identify him.

        What the staff is more likely to do is take a picture of Cooks on stage, shaking hands with the commissioner with a caption of “First round pick from Oregon State, WR Brandin Cooks”. and then send it out on all social media channels. That should get any recruits attention.

      Sounds like the kid is in touch. Last year a decent team, the kid sees the coach not help them get wins, even with a halftime lead. He sees the whole front line leaving. He knows the quality of the returning players. .He sees small chance of improvement, a hopeless situation …. and decides to transfer. Good for him.

          Are we still talking about OSU? Disgraceful and humiliating?

          Using those words and projecting some weird “downward spiral” upon the team is perhaps disgraceful and humiliating. I would just call it damn lazy, especially where “journalists” are concerned.

          But holy cow… disgraceful and humiliating? The hoops and football teams just had mirror years. I don’t hear anyone talking about football’s downward spiral and people leaving as being disgusting and humiliating.

    OT: Bryan Miller lists his top three things to make the Beavs winners. He mentions durability and injury prevention as benefits of his first two (nutrition and strength building). Hope he can be successful especially with the O-line!

    http://www.oregonlive.com/beavers/index.ssf/2014/04/oregon_state_beavers_strength.html

    Speaking of durability, anyone else having serious concerns about Storm(y) here? Seems a bit fragile which may partially explain his tentative running style. Now he’s missed three sessions with a “tweaked” hammy. Maybe he would benefit from a visit with Jeff Hendrix, he seems to have recovered well.

      Great that.Bryan Miller has a wish list. But why was he not keeping an eye on Gavin Andrews…who has had a weight problem since early high school? Why did he not evaluate Keenan in early January and start a crash strength program after he first enrolled, How about the out of shape d linemen…plural? Why did they not assess/report Addie health prior to signing of recruits? A medical retirement after signing period and right before spring practice (not the first time this has happened in recent years) does not jibe with the pr about durability and injury prevention.

        That’s not what I’m taking away from the article. Basically it’s saying if Brown stops dropping the ball, it’ll be him and Ward, with the fragile Woods in 3rd place.

          Not really, it’s taken an injury for him to get carries in practice. The quotes sound like the coaches still don’t think he’s the better choice.

          “I have been trying to take advantage of it,” Brown said. “All I can do is just try to show the coaches that I can play and I’m reliable. Hopefully they can see that.”

          “Running backs have to sometimes get over the hump,” Garrett said, “where it’s not just all about, ‘Just hand me the ball and I’ll make a run or I’ll make a guy miss.’

            He seems to be the most explosive runner by a long shot. When the run game sucks as bad as ours, sometimes it is just about making guys miss. The other two can’t. Ward does not have the speed and Stormy is too tentative. The run game will get better with the same guys toting the rock and a younger less experienced line? Color me skeptical. Brown needs to be heavily involved this year. They need some creativity in using the flawed parts they have to work with.

        People’s expectations around goals and level of confidence are interesting. Should the Beavs expect a BCS bowl each year? or the Sun Bowl? Top two safeties in the nation? or sixth in the conference? Fans don’t want coaches accepting mediocrity. Fans laugh when the goals appear to high.

          Some fans appreciate a balance between confidence and humility. Some fans believe a “team first” attitude leads to more success than a focus on individual achievement. It’s all opinion, of course, but the use of “easily” really did seem out of place…..to me.

          As for bowl expectations, this fan has made clear recently that the W/L record is only part of the degree to which I’m satisfied with performance. Consistent focus, everyday effort, elimination of foolish mistakes, and improved execution as the season progresses are very important factors as well. Clock management and player/staff evaluation and motivation by the head guy also figure in there.

          A little disclaimer here, as I commented on the big O, the written word may not convey the true intent of the interviewee. Right now, though, the written word is all we’ve got with respect to this interview.

          Sounds like they should have a sit down with Dr Phil to work out their “communication and chemistry issues.” Relationships can be soooo difficult kids.
          Murphy has the physical tools to play on Sunday and should be a dominant player this year.
          Zimmerman has had more bad bites than a rabid Pit Bull. His name conjoures up an image for me of him biting hard on an inside fake as the reciever flys by him wide open up the middle. If they are still having issues, is it time to throw a youngster in there? He has played quite a bit and should not be struggling his senior spring camp.

      It’s funny you bring this up. First, you don’t burn bridges no matter the situation. That’s just being adult. But there’s also some conjecture that he doesn’t want to spend his college career in the Pac. Apparently the politics of the Pac and the feeling that the refs are the worst in the country bothers him, the politics being that “star” power gets the calls unlike anywhere else in college ball.

      It’s hard to argue that our refs are any good when Hallice gets ejected for getting hit in the head even after the morons look at replay.

        That’s interesting about the officiating factoring in to a decision to transfer, but makes sense. i’ve seen some just plain bizarre things over the years with these P-12 buffoons, I can only imagine what some of the players think.

        I’ve always thought the officials consider the Beavs kind of a “shitty team” and they are not going to go out of their way to do them any favors. I’m sure the players sense that also.

        Nothing wrong with burning of bridges. It is much better to light a fire than to go thru motions that are insincere. I would argue that being superficial adults going thru the motions got some 200 plus kids killed in Korea since no one was willing to light that bridge on fire. I would not ask Cooke to throw dirt or light any fire. But please do not fake it and self promote.

        Langs must have been pretty content and felt pretty safe.

        I actually think Garret could end up being worth 1 or 2 wins this year that might not have otherwise occurred. The “attention to detail” is thrown out a lot, but seems genuine. If, because of his coaching for example, Chris Brown gets more reps (improved ball security, blocking), then I think we see more big plays. If he can get 3 or 4 RBs reps instead of 1 or 2, I think we see more diversity and production.

        The challenge for the O will be in getting the WRs to continue to produce at a high level. I’m not sold on Mullaney on the outside facing a teams’ best CBs. I was an early supporter of Bolden but he hasn’t shown much and his speed seems to be exaggerated to me. I hope Villamin can qualify and prove to be the athletic freak he’s purported to be.
