    This caught the last comment on the previous thread but I though I’d link it again mostly because of the familiar names.

    Do we normally schedule any NAIA teams? I know Corban was an exhibition game last year, so that doesn’t count. I don’t normally pay attention to that stuff, but seems like i’ve never heard of the Beavs playing an NAIA team in the past. i’m too lazy to look it up

      This was added late after another team (don’t remember name) cancelled a game.

      To answer the specific question – no, we don’t normally schedule NAIA teams. In retrospect, it seems the WOU game would have been better served as regular pre-season game and this one as an exhibition.

      That’s the way it goes….

    Not much to write up about this one. It should be an exhibition. I don’t think it counts in the RPI or BPI anyway.

      The Oregonian says it’s a regular season game for the Beavs, but an exhibition for Corban due to “an NCAA loophole”.

    “The identity of the team is really just to bring what we have to the game every night and not just laying back. It’s to keep the intensity up. We want other teams to know we are going to hit hard. That’s our identity.” — Guard Malcolm Duvivier

    A team that knows its identity after the first game of the season!!!!???

    WTF is going on here??

    I never understood where the hell “Corban” came from (I was away from this area for 20 plus years), finally a friend who played hoops at Willamette told me that Corban used to be Western Baptist!

      Western Baptist merged with a school in Washington state and became Corban.

      I was at the game. Tinkle was awesome (IMHO). He played all the walk-ons. It gave them game experience that they aren’t likely to get much of this year except for maybe Livesay and Sanders.

      At the end of the game he had 4 walk-ons and Justin Stangel on the floor. Way cool!

      They beat Tulsa in their first game, but I think Tulsa is down a little from their glory years. They play Missouri tonight, so that will be a tough go for them. They look like a decent mid-major, i’m sure Jack will have a nice breakdown.

      They’re good as a team. But they’re small. They play with four guards most of the time and try to force the pace. Because of their size, they will play a match-up zone for most of the game. If you see them in man, expect it to drop into zone. They’re led by Billbury and Emegano. Billbury isn’t a threat from the floor. Emegano is. They have one kid who takes nothing but treys, Webber, but he doesn’t make a lot. And they have another who is a pretty decent scorer, Word. They aren’t awesome in face-up D, but they help well. And they will gather at the rim and use their athleticism to block shots on dribble drives. They will do a nice job preventing post entry most of the time. But once it’s in the post they are pretty weak. Because of that they have a tendency to collapse with the ball. They’re set up to defend dribble entry and motion offenses. They are not set up well to defend high post swings or high-low games.

      Contain Emegano and keep both him and Billbury off the glass and off the line, and make some perimeter shots. That’s about all you have to do to shut them down. Easier said than done depending on how the refs call the game. Those two were getting a ton of ticky-tack calls against Tulsa. And they do not box out well on the defensive end… probably because they play a zone where they’re chasing the ball the whole time.

    You can hear Tinkle shouting “hands up” over and over at the defense. CR habits are hard to break, but he is going to do it.

      That is so basic. When I played street ball we’d always put our hands up. 101 stuff.

        I dunno about anyone else but Robbins play has not changed my mind that he’s a selfish player. Once he gets the ball, he’s like Kobe. It ain’t comin back out. Watched him go 1 on 2 during a 2 on 2 break when he could have made a pass to his teammate for a layup. Only time I saw him give it up was to Payton for a layup after he made a steal. No wonder he was always in the dog house with CR. And having to defend CR pisses me off.

        Tinkle talked more about the team not having their hands up at the presser. In a “kind way”, he let it be known he was not happy with their defensive effort last night.

    Tinkle’s not real happy with the 2nd half, Corban has played even with the Beavs and there has been a lot of one on one stuff instead of crisp ball movement.

    whiskey doesn’t think he and his wolfpack can make the game Friday but is considering doing this for the UP game Dec 6. Anyone here ever been to the Chiles Center for a game? How good/bad are the Pilots this year?

      I’m going Dec 6th too. First UP game also. I think they lost to a D2 team last week while OSU was losing to Western, so I’m just guessing they’ll be a pretty even match with the Beavs. Not one of their better teams.

        Probably, but you must admit he has a whole lot more opportunity (30 games)…

        How many wins does Riley get this year? 5? 6? 7? 8?

          So… who has the better conference win percentage?

          Riley has two with the potential for four. So right now Tinks has to win 8+ to match potential. I’m thinking we win six or seven. More would take a little less of the hectic play we have seen in the first 8 minutes of the second half in each of our three games, exhibition included.

    At last night’s game I mentioned to my neighbor that I would like to see Beaver football win out – for us Believers; but I’d also like to see the Yucks play for the natty – for the entire state.

    Too bad we can’t have both.

    My neighbor said, “we always want the Beavs to win no matter what!” I had to agree.

      Yeah… too bad.

      /sarc

      I want the Beavs to win every game/match/meet/event out there. That’s sort of the point here.

      And while winning out would be excellent, especially for the seniors on the team, we here would be left scratching our heads about all the losses. USC might be understandable to a point since Sark is a cheap shot shit and altered what was a decent plan to his favor. But we still could have been closer and/or winning (the SU game as well) with the type of game we saw against ASU. Riley has eschewed what made him a good coach bumping up against the hump for some weird game where his teams are just over-matched where he wants to succeed.

      I feel like the only time he runs what was once his offense is when we’re about to face a blitz-heavy D. It’s like he carries that coaching card that tells him when to go for two on the PAT, when to call a time out and when to game plan a balanced run game.

      Obviously, he loses the card sometime in the middle of the second quarter… leading to weird clock management and a lack of half time adjustments. But sometimes that helps… like when the game plan is to just pound the ball and use that game to take some shots here and there.

      It’s not lost on me that our early wins were completely unbalanced except for SDSU. What made them look balanced were second half leads and running the ball to keep the clock moving.

        I think most of the reasons behind the losses have been adequately discussed in various threads on the blog.

        My take, like a lot of other folks, is coaching inadequacies. Although I think Riley is a good, middle of the pack, coach, I think he forgets some of his game plan “in the moment” and goes back to the pass happy mode he is “famous” for.

        I tell anyone who will listen that the Beavs success needs to come from the run. Even with a player like Mannion, success (winning) must come from the run game. I’m excited for next year when we have more mobile QBs…I just hope Riley changes his game to accommodate the difference.

        Look at all our better teams from the past and what you see is a run-based game.
