      I’m waiting to see what Tinkle can come up with to counter only having 6 players.

      I read an interesting comment on the last thread where it was suggested to bring in a graduate that still has eligibility. Not sure if something like this is even do-able or if there is any such player around that would help us on such short notice and not having practiced Tinkle defense. Maybe a big-time shooter would work?

      It’s still an interesting premise which I’m sure is being, or has been, explored.

      Let’s see what he comes up with. Even if it’s to tough out 9 more games with 6 players, still we have a much better team than anticipated and a great foundation for next year and beyond.

    Down a man and on the road against an increasingly confident conference opponent. Not a good recipe for us yet.

    The game remains the same. Make shots, and we win. Struggle from the floor, and we have to be D monsters to have a chance.

    Tinks needs to start using Cheikh. I know he’s a liability on offense, but he’ll remain so until he gets time. No time like the present.

    And we can’t see any Rastatter, Brill or Harris on the floor. I was watching the Wazzu game against Nikegon, and the announcers were praising Harris and his crew because refs were “doing a great job when they weren’t being talked about.” Mind you, they were doing all this gushing during some weird official timeout where Harris was reviewing a call that had no business being recalled. The announcers were confused and speculated they were trying to correct the clock. They weren’t. They never gave an explanation for the more than two minute break in play. But the announcers could gush about the officials at this time… not even realizing the very words they used to describe them were describing what they were doing to make themselves very poor officials. And the announcers spent the whole game saying things like, “I didn’t see a foul there,” and, “ticky-tack.”

    We had Rastatter against UW, and he did his usual suck. That was Harris at Wazzu. He was pretty awful. I expect we’ll get both plus Brill… and probably Eggers as the scorer.

    I know WT is in the “honeymoon phase” and walks on water, but except for the excitement of slipping by Arizona, I think the games are as boring as hell to watch. Granted he is working with an ill-assorted mish-mash of players but the “Go Defense” first approach is a tried and true recipe and acknowledgment of inferior talent.

    I”m afraid that WT has become used to working with less than top-tier level players and has become accustomed to this grind it out approach. It reminds me of his Montana teams playing a 16 seed in the NCAA’s. I don’t see how, in the long run, he attracts today’s player that loves to run the court and put up lots of shots.

    Granted he has a good crop coming in next year, but seriously, how hard is it to recruit within your own and your assistant’s families? JB

    PS: President Ray is thinking of giving BDC a bonus, based on the reduction of angry emails sent to his office and the up tick in fund raising. Who would have guessed that a new football coach a new basketball coach and a winning women’s team would placate Beaver Nation. Thanks BDC from the Pres!

        Well, yer trouble is, you are trying to find fault and cant find any. His defense first is an acknowledgement of inferior talent?? Duhhh…. A good recruiting class including a couple coaches’ kids is a slam dunk? Duhhh… So then he has talent and can run and play some offense…and recruit even better….

        Face it — he is doing more with what he has than probably anyone else we could have got and has talent coming in. The players believe, playing that intense defense, and they are buying into his system. Its all a formula for success. Worry about it going to hell when it does, if it ever does. All taken together, its a huge turnaround from CR. What point is there in being skeptical?

      I tend to agree but the best teams every year in the NCAA play solid team D. College basketball is all played with inferior talent. Players with talent leave early. Unless you are Kentucky, you will never keep offensive talent.

      Very incorrect… except that you think our games are boring as hell to watch. When we’re not shooting well, when anyone isn’t shooting well, it can be bad. But seeing the science in action can be a beautiful thing even without the scoring. Taking good shots off good passes is the first step. We make those shots at home. We miss on the road. It’s a matter of experience.

      Now take your Ducks as the contrast. They play iso-kick and no defense. That, to me is ugly ball. It looks about as much like a team playing as do several cars driving 20mph too fast through a school zone. All the drivers are individuals moving in the same direction, but there’s going to eventually be a wreck.

      “Defense first” is the foundation. Where CR failed was a move away from that. Good talent, no talent, mediocre talent… it doesn’t matter. The best coaches are the ones who spend the beginning of every year teaching the fundamentals. Coach K takes time in his fall camp to teach the importance of ball fakes in his offense. He will spend five minutes lecturing his players about how faking a pass to the left then passing right is important in many subtle ways. Then he runs the shell for ten minutes until he thinks everyone shows him they understand. Tony Bennet might tell you something about what he thinks about your “no D” idea.

      Pandering to 17 and 18 year-olds who think they’re the next LeBron is a sure way to never be elite. The elite play D first. The elite have control freaks as head men. The best hoops dynasty ever, where elite talent flocked without question, began their first practice every fall by watching their head coach teach them to put on socks and lace up shoes in the “proper” way.

      If you don’t want to play hard D all game, you don’t want to be elite.

    Yeah I see us losing as well. It will actually take an enormous coaching job to keep this team together. This could be the start of a very long downward spiral. They had limited depth with Robbins, now they have none. Teams should be able to wear us down, and we will miss Robbins offensive contributions that this team is desperately trying to come up with. If WT can at least keep them winning at home that would be a very successful season.

    The team will definitely play faster as they acquire depth and talented depth at that. Those freshmen are going to want to play fast, and the defense creates transition opportunities. For now, I’m more than satisfied with the approach we have to watch, which gives our team a chance to win more ball games. I was at the Arizona game, my hands were shaking after. If that’s not exciting, I don’t know what is.

    I’m just still kinda upset and in a “F*ck you Vic” type of mood because he couldn’t lay off until after the season.

        You wont see 200 proof unless you are in a lab and make it. Ethanol is hygroscopic and takes water from anywhere to establish the 95% azeotrope. Making 100% requires distilling it in a closed system from a mixture that removes the water. Then it has to be kept closed or it will take water from the air. I think I recall that correctly. Never tried drinking 100% but did drink the 95 that could be got from the stockroom. Parties in the chem dept had some heavy drinking…lol.

            Drinking 95 is a trip. I gave some to a GF to see her reaction, but she was smart and knew what she was doing — work up a bunch of saliva first, and it mixes with the 95 before going down yer throat. I would work up to it by mixing it and drinking that, then add 95 until you worked up to the pure 95. Damn, you could get really wasted…

      He has always been capable. He is likely the best scoring talent CR ever recruited. He just needs to wake from his slumber.

            Testament to the new coaching staff. Turning poop into power. WT DESERVES to be in consideration for national head coach of the year.

            Talking heads on the postgame show on Pac-12 networks. I dunno who the dude was but he said, 17 games in and Oregon St is 12-5. If they were 5-12 it would still be considered progress. Expectations were that low.

      I cant see him tempted by that. With talent coming in, and the existing team buying into his coaching, this is a great opportunity for him. Really build something significant. Maybe in a few years he is bought out and away, but I expect him to stick for a while, anyway.

      With us so short handed, he is sure performing a miracle!

      Not so much worried about that. Reasons: The way these “new” coaches have the attitude that this is the place the want to be, coaches sons are coming here, that alone should keep them here for 4 years. I don’t think its going to be hard to keep them here with the upgrades coming down the line.

    Does this remind you of anyone? – Last night’s statement from Ernie Kent. “This team had a monster win on Thursday and you had them in an environment here, mentally they were just not where they needed to be, which is why they didn’t shoot the ball well, quite frankly.”

    “We saw it, we tried to guard against it, we talked about it,” he continued. “But this team is in uncharted territories from where they’ve been the last couple years so as much as they have to handle the adversity going through some losses and the adversity of the road, they also have to handle the adversity of winning.”

    Coaching differences aside, I’m so happy for WT and statements like, “they played their asses off.”

      Can’t predict pac 12 tourney until match ups are determined but for the final 13 regular season conference games.

      Wins: ucla, usc, wsu, wash, Colorado, oregon and at USC
      Losses: at Arizona, at ucla, at Stanford
      Swing games: at asu, at cal, utah

      Swing games are the key. These could go either way. Robbins is eligible to return for utah. Without him I think that game is a sure loss even at home. I’ll go out on a limb and say Beavs lose at home to utah, and they’ll split the other two. So, 8 wins is my prediction

        Pretty much the way I see it as well, except your “swing games” were wins in my book.

        Something hard to account for is – will Robbins be game-ready when he returns or will he need a couple games to get back? I believe he is practicing on the scout/practice squad so maybe he’s fully back by second half of the Utah game. Looking back I guessed the 10 wins based on 13, not 14, games for the same reason you stated.

        Also will his return “dis-joint” the rest of the team? They will have had 10 games without him to adjust to a new rotation. His return could mess that up.

        Right now we’re all 0-0 so we will see….winning any will be tough on the team with only 6 players. And, even tougher to advance very far in the post-season with only 7.

        Even if it’s 0-13, we still have a team that has exceeded all expectations for this season!

        Wow

          I can’t see this team losing the rest of their conference games. WT is doing too good of a job and deserves to be in the discussion for national coach of the year. But, as always, one injury or another suspension and everything is out the window. The loss of Robbins does hurt. and the margin for error just got even smaller. But we saw Saturday evening these guys can win a conference road game even going only 6 or 7 deep. That said I still don’t think WSU is in the upper half of the conference. Arizona, Utah and Stanford are head and shoulders above everyone else. Then there is a jumbled mess of 9 teams capable of beating up on each other.

            Yeah, injury and suspension could really derail the train. There is a limit to what the coaches can pull off. Another thing is getting too many fouls in any game. Refs are sometimes a bit nuts. Just one of the rotation fouling out could lose a game that would otherwise be won.

      What say I? Talk about an archaic idiom. You been hanging out in British courts lately?

      I agree with Whiskey except that I would both UCLA games in the swing category. They are so Jekyll and Hyde depending on how Looney plays. And I think we win two or three of the swings, making it 8 or 9.

      We’ll need to win 10 to make the dance bubble. The Corban win will not count in the RPI or as a part of our overall record. So we’re really 11-5 right now. 10 wins will make us 20+ and still in single-digit losses before an eventual Pac Tourney loss puts us at 21-10.

      It’s possible but not probable. I thought 14 to 17 with 5-8 leugue wins and 8th place in the Pac. I think we can do better than that now, even with the suspension.

    Beavs up to 88 in RPI after yesterdays games…………………..

    Arizona 6
    Utah 13
    Stanford 26
    Washington 50
    UCLA 65
    Colorado 84
    Beavs 88
    Oregon 102
    Cal 119
    WSU 121
    USC 134
    ASU 144

    Arizona, Utah and Stanford are clearly in at this point. UW’s weekend sweep put them squarely on the bubble. Everyone else has work to do. I don’t see the beavs dropping too many to teams below them. As always, keep winning and it will all resolve itself. The lowest RPI of an at large team in NCAA tournament history is 67.

        currently. Yes there are many games still to play. But at this point Arizona, Utah and Stanford are clearly the best teams in the conference and I’d be shocked if they do not make the tournament. Despite UW’s current RPI, if they make the tournament when it’s all said and done, I’d be surprised. They aren’t that good. Pac-12 is looking like a 3 bid league to the tournament. But there are a few teams talented (or well coached enough) that could sneak in. We shall see
