21.May.2014 Tinkle’s First Job: Keeping Incoming Recruits

Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast)

In a sense we’ll see early on whether Tinkle can recruit, as he now has to resell himself and Oregon State to the 3 incoming recruits. The good news is that today Chai Baker said he will be a Beaver. Manderson and Oliver silent so far. Both had a lot of options. If they de-commit, it probably would signal they were more into Craig Robinson than OSU because both are great fits for WT’s offense.

But stopping the bleeding and keeping all these guys is test #1, and we’ll see how Tinkle does. So far, so good.

    The more I read and watch about Tinkle the more I like him. Especially the fact that everyone says his teams are hardworking and defensive minded, two things I always thought were painfully absent on CRs teams. I also love that he uses his big men as a major part of his game plan. Being able to convince Manderson to keep his commitment would be a huge first win for Tinkle.

      Yes. I’ve always liked him and thought he was a safe, solid hire, but I am thinking he could be more than that and actually turn things around. Thing is, any time there is a change like this a fan will get optimistic and look at all the reasons something can work out. It’s hard to say how Montana translates to Oregon State. That’s the big question mark. He’ll probably do all the same things at OSU, but will they work…

    Baker and Manderson would be the need to get. Oliver would be nice and Payton II would be fine to help out the guard depth. They’ll need a point guard next year who can break the press. I don’t believe Duvivier could break the press all on his own.

    I also just noticed, the team won’t have any seniors next year.

    We’ll see. This ain’t no Montana Big Sky bullshit, that’s for sure. This is THE PAC-12 mother f’er, and there’s WAY too many scum bag coaches out there poaching kids and steering kids away from OSU as early as elementary school. The deck is heavily stacked against Tinkler, but maybe he can actually show realistically talented kids our god damn indoor facility. I swear BDC is still butt hurt over how the whole funding fiasco went down with that and is keeping it out of the headlines as much as possible because of it.

    He should also start sending recruits the link for the crank chain saw you tube video to show a bit of our tradition to kids for once. Because if THAT won’t work, _______

      He knows how to appeal to his new collegiate fan base. The quad is right next to the library and I remember many loooong days and nights at that library armed with energy drinks. If I was still a student at OSU I would be there in a heart beat to meet the new coach and score some free Amp energy drinks (those things are like $2.00+ per can!).

      I’d be curious to know how many of the players showed up for the press conference.

      And the photo with BDC was hilarious. The camera had to pan out so much because of the height difference.

      Thanks for posting. I didny get to see it live. First impressions…
      Wayne Tinkle is an example of good genetics and Bob DeCarolis isnt. Jesus Christ, did you see those 2 standing next to each other? Its like Arnold Schwartzenegar and Danny Devito in Twins. (hopefully some of you have seen it to know what I mean)
      Tinkle won the press conference in my opinion. Did a good job of mentioning OSU’s past, and had a clear vision of what he expects from his team. He has a good idea of what system he wants to put in place and has high expectations of his players, but he also wants to give them the freedom to run their offense as long as they buy into the defense side. I like that he stresses inside out basketball, rather than the perimeter ball and rat ball we often saw with CR. Lets hope he’s as convincing with players as he is with fans.

      Also, I’ll lay off the piss jokes now, for fear that Tinkle might find out and kick my ass. That is one big, sexy man, and I wouldnt want to piss him off.

        I like it so far….. figure WT sees this as a step up the career ladder, and at least will work hard to get success.

        Save the Tinkle jokes for when he screws up…..then we need em.

    CHANGE!!! It’s too bad about Bengazi and obamacare because CR was way cooler before all that crap. BDC’s master plan to conquer the world ALMOST worked last time, and at least Winkle isn’t only known for being the half retarded brother of a politicians wife who has failed miserably in every professional capacity he has managed to back into.

      Hmm, well that is too bad. Hopefully he can get it all sorted. At least the article says he feels good about Cam Oliver. Getting 3/4 recruits to buy in isn’t bad, especially when the 4th doesn’t come back of academic problems.

    5 Reasons I like the new coach

    1. Make fun of his name
    2. His daughter
    3. His other daughter
    4. His son-no I am not gay-want him to play for us
    5. Won’t have to look long in to find him in a crowd

    Too bad Moreland left, he had no way of knowing, but it sounds like he missed a real opportunity. Would have been the focal of point of the team with a coach who knows what he is doing with big men.

      fuck moreland. he made his bed. He always was and always will be about the chronic. knowing that he’ll be on an nbdl squad for life (if even that), WT wouldn’t have put up with his shit and he would’ve been gone anyways. I for one am glad that he, and his reefer madness buddy Collier are history. Add matador Nelson to that, glad they’re all out of eligibility. I wasn’t behind this hire and still am skeptical. But if I see some tough nose defense being played, I’ll get back on board. I’ll wait until the fall. And unless WT and staff can teach Olaf to play defense, fuck him too
