    I expect a win tonight. The team got a gut check on Saturday. Now they know what it’s going to take to win in conference play. Solid D at home should lead to a win.

    I am expecting a win tonight as well. ASU is dead last in the conference in turnovers (they turn the ball over a ton). I expect that to be the difference with the beavers defense. But, that’s why they play the games. I don’t think anyone saw Wazzu beating Cal in Berkeley last weekend.

    Yeah….if we can play the frenetic defense we usually do at home it is really possible. We need to get a conference win, to hope for a few by season’s end. GO BEAVS!

      they’re mediocre at best. Some tough losses to Alabama, Maryland ans aTm but they also lost to Lehigh. However, they did blow out that same UNLV team that beat Arizona. Go figure. Like the beavs they lost most of their scoring from last year. They are relying mostly on JC transfers

            That’s a really good idea but I don’t know how it would work logistically. Now that I think about it most of the people who were there were in the second deck and up and probably don’t get much TV time. There are a lot of empty seats behind the benches because those cost big bucks. I don’t know who those people are, or where they are at.

            It’s a shame the perception is so bad on TV, because in person it was pretty good. All things are relative though, and in comparison to our glory years it would have been pathetic attendance.

            That happens all the time at other arenas. Heck, last night I went to the Portland Pilots/Santa Clara game. Crowd was pretty sparse since they’re still on winter break. My tickets were in the cheap seats in the end zone. As the game started, the mascot and cheerleaders came up to our section and told everybody to move down into the sideline seats. They get it. Need to at least give the appearance of a full arena for the tv cameras.
            Also happened the last time I saw a game at Mac Court. Portland State vs Oregon, and they took a couple of the upper level sections and told the fans to move down and fill in the lower levels.

            @Bob. I was not trying to be a smart ass. It did look bad on TV and it has for many years.
            I happened to be a student at time of the absolute apex of the program, so this has been a long nightmare for me. Thanks for supporting the program. I hope get out there some year and go to a game again at Gill. My fondest memories from school happened in that building. It looks like we finally have a coach in Tinkle. Go Beavs!

            The problem is that anyone who buys football season tickets and pays the seat-donation tax gets the seat-donation tax waived at Gill. So dropping a couple extra hundred bucks on season tickets for hoops is nothing for those people. And they are not serious hoop fans. They are serious OSU fans. But their preference of sport and the product that has been put on the floor for a couple decades leads to non-participation from those fans.

            The structure is fine for now. Just like football and the idea that we or anyone will only invest in something we feel has future value (yeah… Mark Banker… you guys had negative future value apparently), hoops needs to prove something before we can make that exclusive from football donation-taxes.

            You all know me. I would rather be Duke and have a great hoops team and buy my season tickets for the 17 or 18 events that I can attend… indoors… warm… dry… with a group of people I know and enjoy. Football is a six or seven event thing with tailgating. And it’s damn expensive in terms of both time and money. More power to those who like that. I’m gonna go with hoops.

            And I think baseball can have its own segment as well. It should if it doesn’t already.

            Make attendance to the Olympic sports a free pass for all the people who are segmented by these three sports. There are many good and great athletes playing other sports who deserve attention. It’s more important to have people in the stands cheering for them than it is to gain revenue. And events should be scheduled to coincide when the big three are in town for the primary event. I know that happens with travel schedules and lesser sports during football season. But there needs to be more of such.

            I lived off Portland Ave on Awbrey Rd in the early 80’s. I lived there when John Lennon was assassinated. When I first came to Central Oregon I moved a lot! Lived in 7 or 8 places in 4 years, then bought my house in ’83. Been there ever since.

            Radio reception for Beaver games really sucks unless you live east of Tumalo. Their power is really low and gets lower at dark (game time usually).

            On a good day, with the antenna hooked up, I can pick up KEX from Portland….sorta.

            There used to be a station in Prineville that broadcast games don’t know if they do any longer.

      I think the Zona coach is on PEDs. I wish we could test him. I bet hes taking stuff for concentration, intensity, alertness, etc. When coaches are getting paid millions, you can bet some are using PEDs to up their gameday ability.

I mean these guys work really long hours, attention to detail is so necessary. Plus, they have disposable income. The more that I think about this the more I think that they must be on PED’s.

    Sunday’s game is Arizona’s to lose. The Beavs will have to keep the game low scoring. Somewhere in the 50s or 60s should give them a chance. Arizona has size and athleticism at nearly every position.

    To win, they’ll have to keep their mistakes to a minimum and capitalize on every Arizona error.

    Watching the last 10 minutes of the second half last night was not pretty. I think we need to be really patient with this team. They have gotten some success, but we can’t forget that this is the same team that had only 10% of its production coming back and depth is very very thin. The real challenge for this program is not to hit the wall in February and completely collapse down the stretch.

    Last night the ASU defense just sagged in the key and extended out on shooters. They made it difficult to penetrate. However, OSU contributed to that because they were not attacking early in the shot clock, which probably is by design to slow the game down. So, if you are going to do that you have to be really efficient on the offensive end. They did that last night by getting to the line and making free throws.

    Defensively, they look so much better than last year. Goomis is starting to roam the paint daring anybody to in there so he can swat it. I think teams will start taking it at him to get him in foul trouble. But the defense rotates better and is constantly active, and when you have guys like GP2 who can hit the boards that has helped alot. They should be in a lot of games, because of that defense.

    I think Arizona is going to rout them on Sunday. It is just too much to ask this team in its development right now to keep that game close, let alone think about winning it. But the rest of the conference teams are more reasonable.

      We need to have the same intensity on D and the boards that we did last night. On top of that we need to take more than eight and make more than three treys. And we have to at least throw it in the post sometimes. Inside out can work without an effective post scorer. But it has to go inside during your possessions.

      If we can deny post entry, I’ll be amazed. Expect to see some depth come off the bench if only to push some blocks and give some fouls. Sometimes strategic fouls can kill the opposition’s momentum as well as anything else. Discreetly put their worst FT shooter on the line instead of letting him set the blocks, and a possession can be reduced to one or zero points, subconsciously deflating momentum. Imagine if every time down the floor Daniel or Cheikh were to be put on the line instead of us being allowed to shoot the ball.

    I can’t believe I went from watching 0 games for 1.5 years (no exaggeration) to looking forward to watching games. With “worse players”, too. Just shows how important coaching and attitude/confidence are. I’m really glad OSU has defensive minded coaches in all sports right now. Defense is harder to play than offense, and that difficulty instills toughness. Offensive teams = finesse teams, almost always.

      Ditto. Until this season, I would go to 2 or 3 games a year, and maybe two football games.

      Because of the low price I thought, “what the heck, cheap entertainment”. Then the recruiting class for next year, then the walk on recruitment. [My youngest son (goes to WOU) knows one of the walk ons from high school (my son was one of the student managers), so we went to that exhibition and the 2 got caught up on the past couple years before the game].

      From that incredibly terrible performance to today’s awesome defensive team is an amazing turn-around. I agree that we need to keep in perspective that we are thin, essentially with 7 players (I don’t include Cheikh as he is still being developed).

      Coaching, coaching, coaching! I wonder what Tinkle could have done with some of CR’s players from past teams…imagine Collier, Brandt and Moreland playing this defense!

      Point here, I guess, is that I am so happy that I bought season tickets! as an added benefit, you guys get see me at every home game because of seat & camera locations. How awesome is that for you?

            I’ve already talked to them (management and/or security) about signs. I was told the biggest they will allow is 8-1/2″ x 11″. If they find someone with a larger size sign they will confiscate the sign and/or remove the person from the building. Sheesh!

            I’ve been watching and so far have seen no one removed. But haven’t seen any large signs either.

        I think Brandt would have been the most open to Waynes’s coaching. I’m not sure about the other two, I know we don’t like O-Live, but in one of the articles there was a reference to “negative attitudes” last year, of course no specifics.

          The ‘negative attitudes’, IMO, most likely was a reflection of coaching, or lack there of. Of course it’s all 20-20 hindsight now…

      Rolled ankle… suckers hurt more than a full on sprain. He’ll need to be taped, and he’ll likely be about 85%. It’s the good foot as far as which side of the zone he plays on since the push-off is better than the landing foot for lateral D. But I still don’t expect him to be as good as he was against ASU with forcing the ball to the baseline.

            Lets break it down Barney style: See, the site is angrybeavs – not angry beavers. No R in Beavs and cant spell angry without the R. See he wants to say both Thanks Beavers and also credit AngryBeavs. So going both vertical and horizontal he gets both messages across. So to say angry he needs an available R and gets it from the parenthetical ER. And this way it says thanks beavers & thanks angry Beavs. Now lets all dance around.

      Refreshing remarks from the coordinators; build an offense and “go beat that team down there” and building the dam defense. Contrast with Riley “Its great to be part of the civil war tradition,” which it is, but that’s also struck me as “I’m just happy to be here.”

      Anyone know if these coordinators are up in the press box or on the sideline?

      Andersen said (again) the offense is Baldwin’s and the Defense Sitake’s. That concerns me a bit given Sitake’s history, and I hope Andersen is active in complimenting and correcting Sitake’s defense.

      Andersen says they don’t have to “sell” recruits on OSU, Corvallis, but they seem more enthused about Corvallis and OSU than homeboy Mike Riley did in recruiting these past several years and that’s going to have a huge and positive impact, not only in recruiting but in changing the previous negative narrative.

      And the RB coach from Miami, as mentioned here previously by others, is going to be great in recruiting, what a hire there. Can’t wait to see his results with Woods, Brown, Haskins, Nall(?) and future recruits.

    This hoops team kind of reminds me of the 1998-99 team, they weren’t expected to do much, but they had a “do all” leader at guard in Deaundra Tanner also. They finished 13-14 and upset Arizona. I thought Eddie Payne had turned the corner, but that turned out to be false hope. This team is already at 10 wins, maybe they get to 15 with the best coach since Ralph.
