7pm Friday on Pac-12. This will be another loss, obviously. So 14-7 headed home. I only see a max of 5 wins left on the schedule, so to me it’s looking like NIT unless they win the Pac tourney.

I know some people want to talk football recruiting. You can do that here while we wait for the game. Agree with all of you saying the class is disappointing (i.e. thought Andersen would be able to pull off magic) , but there are some good players and next year it should be much better. It’s hard to accept this is the class, though, after so much energy a few weeks ago.

    The thing that has me concerned is how adamant Andersen was in interviews about how he’d take his staff over any other staff in the country, when it comes to closing, in recruiting. They were able to close the deal with Bobby D, but that’s about it so far. So far, the other teams have been closing better for the most part. We’re bound to have a class of less than 15 guys, and most will be guys that weren’t even their top targets. Sure, a lot could happen in a week, but things could get even worse in a week too.

      I think we need to be careful with Andersen. He seems like a great salesmen. Always says the right thing. Not sure I can trust him.

      If you look at Utah State, Wisconsin, or Utah you’ll see they haven’t been amazing recruiters in terms of rankings… Not sure where that idea really came from. I think our new coaches were instrumental in bringing in the guys those schools did get though.

      I’ll wait until it’s all official, but clearly this class will be a disappointment if it stays as small as it is now…

        Does that make sense to you? Because I certainly have a harder time trusting people who say the wrong things.

    it’s pretty hard to build relationships with these recruits in a short period of time. I’ll wait until LOI’s are signed before I get excited or disappointed. Might just be a few surprises in store.

    I was hoping for a larger recruiting carryover from the respective teams they left. Can’t fully judge them based on this year because they really had an inadequate amount of time to get organized and hit the trail. Next year they will have better results when they have time to evaluate players who are not already committed to another team. They have been successful in lesser venues and expect them to carry that on with Oregon State. If Washington State can pull it off, we sure in the hell should be able to. These are good charismatic coaches with good connections.

    Can’t say I’m too worried about recruiting. They were put in a tight spot, and as great as Andersen is, Oregon State doesn’t have a great reputation…yet.

    If he can rack up wins next season though, I think recruiting will pick up more. For now, I’m satisfied.

    Besides, nothing is set in stone until LOI day.

    Don’t really care about recruiting this cycle. They’ve had no time and whatever we get is a bonus. If you look at the numbers, GA’s best class is 30 coming off of a rose bowl, so I’m not expecting a slew 4 and 5 stars to ditch the schools they committed to this late in the game.

    My excitement is at the prospect of having a team where players r playing they’re best position, the best player is the starter regardless of expierence, schemes adjusted to talent, and disciplined players who cut out procedure penalties. This team has talent. Do those things wins will come, then the recruits.

          I think Mullaney will have a “comeback player” type season…be interesting to see what Hill brings, plus the obvious talent of Villamin, Jarmon.

          So looking forward to 4 & 5 WR sets with this group…

            Gilmore was also still just a Sophomore last year as well. Bolden for all the critiques (drops, going down easily) was the primary target as a true soph and still found a way to consistently get open and made some very difficult catches. With that famous Cooks work ethic, I wouldn’t count him out.

            This group is so young. People forget who had a lot of really bad drops their sophomore year. A guy named Markus Wheaton. Had some of the worst, wide open, touchdown drops I’ve ever seen. Hands turned into stickem between Soph and Jr year. They don’t all turn out like Boom.

            Jarmon and Villamin will be the primary WRs. Mullaney will be the possession WR/slot.

            Jack is right on with Guyton, too. He is a future stud. Maybe next year since Andersen isn’t afraid to play the best talent. That would allow Jarmon to move to slot and Mullaney to be a 4th WR

    The Recruiting has been a major bummer. I am not really excited about the class, and I had high hopes. I am a little surprised that some recruits bailed, but I really think its because the staff told they didn’t want them in not so many words. I agree with others I thought we would have seen more flips.

    The reality is they didn’t have enough time to get together, unfortunately Riley had about the same amount of time and did better. But other schools going through the same thing (coaching changes) are doing about what we are.

    I suspect that we could see some transfers and late additions once Letter of Intent Day is over.

    I think the staff wants their guys and is not so concerned with this years numbers. They have been offering what seems like a ton of 2016/17 kids. So they are laying the ground work for the future.

    So I am giving them a pass, but I am disappointed in the class as well.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if his job hopping isn’t a liability right now, either from competing coaches or thoughtful parents; 3rd job in 3 years? Two-season stops at last two jobs?

    The class will be better next year. If he stays 4+ years – i.e. this REALLY is the place for him – he will probably do very good.

    I don’t think there is anything to worry about yet. The coaching will be a huge improvement, competitive and entertaining.

    As it stands right now this is worst class since Pettibone days. Very disappointing, hope he is a coaching wizard or we are headed back to some dark days. Two below average classes at Wisconsin and a face plant here unless something changes. Getting a few top notch JC players that can’t get in anyway else might work at Utah State, but not at a power five school. Not impressed with this hire at all so far. Hope the product is MUCH better on field than it reads on paper and looks on film.

      With “genuine” 3* you can win with good coaching. Nothing wrong with 3* across the board. I think if you can do 3*+ at both lines and CB you have a great chance to win. With good schemes and coaching…

          In 2016 pac opponents will be concerned about OSU;l, at least from an offensive standpoint. And likely defensive blitzing sack/tfl standpoint.

          Next year, they’ll be unsure what to expect, and an inexperienced QB will be compensated for by scheme, play calling, and pace. If opponents are not careful/sound, they’ll pay for it.

            He’s legit. He’d benefit from sticking around in my opinion; build trust, increase recruit quality. Lately he’s been a wanderer recently, and that – combined with the short window – has to factor for “flips” and high quality recruits. But his coaching acumen is I think trustworthy.

            What I would love to see is the quick strike, hit first, we-believe-we-can-win mentality of the Utah team that beat Alabama in the sugar bowl. That’s the kind of player ability/coaching intersection OSU needs to strike to get beyond the Alamo bowl/Sun Bowl standard. GA was a D coordinator for that team, and I think he can instill that attitude and successful implementation in the Beavers and I think he/OSU/Corvallis can recruit the necessary talent to make that happen.

        Im with you on this one. I think we will be fine with the class that we get even if it isnt “impressive” on paper. OSU’s biggest improvement on the field will be from a change in coaching philosophy and emphasis on intensity. Riley didnt give a shit about football in the end IMO, he was happy being the father figure nice guy and staying loyal to his coaching staff.

    Also of note only TWO teams in the Pac-12 have a winning record on the road. Arizona (4-2) and Stanford (4-3). Even mighty 11th ranked Utah doesn’t have a winning road record (2-3). Point being winning on the road is tough in conference. Win your home games and any they manage to steal on the road is gravy at this point.

    Robo-calls are so last decade! So in other words, Riley’s modernized himself since moving 😀

    So Folau is visiting and has OSU as a slight edge over Utah….he really wanted UO, but said in portland’s favorite catbox liner that it felt like he was recruiting them more than they were recruiting him…ironically, academics and campus environment are important to him, and UO was his lead?

    I think Andersen should have no trouble getting his verbal after he has him on campus.

        Yeah, I started to post that, and before submitting it, walked away from my computer for several minutes, came back, and Angry and beavblazer pointed that out…

        I’m not crazy about these mission kids. Nothing against their beliefs, I guess it just takes different management of your recruiting numbers. But if they commit, go on a mission, the next year they can commit elsewhere, correct? No?

        Seems like if you don’t even count the risk of them not coming back from a mission, or in reopening their recruitment if they can, you have the opportunity cost of investing time in recruiting them that could have gone to other kids that will be on campus.

And he won’t have that because he knows he’s a winner, and he’s here to make OSU basketball a winner. Again.

    Beavs have offered another 2016 QB prospect. Listed as a dual threat QB, but looks more like he’s a runner and not much of a thrower from the limited tape I can find. Another Seth Collins type, but not as tall. Looks like a good athlete, but maybe not so much as a QB.

      He committed to TTU as an athlete.

      He was recruited by Kliff Kingsbury (HC/OC/QBs) and Eric Morris (OC/WRs) so it could be that he’ll be a WR or QB. TTU is a pass heavy offense so I’d lean towards WR since he seems underdeveloped as a passer.

      You don’t have to be a great passer as QB in most contemporary college offenses which is what we’ll be running now.

      Forgive me for this, but the Ducks were a primarily rushing team until Chip left. Masoli/Thomas never struck me as great passers and they had success. Even Mariota gets knocked by NFL scouts because his throws are often to wide open receivers or WR screens with big YAC.

    With Robbins out, the Beavers have maybe 2 guys who can get into the paint and 1 who can finish even remotely consistently. Beavers love to ISO Robbins at the elbow and he’s gotten better at driving and finishing. With him out the Beavers have to rely on GP and Olaf having big games to have a chance. If one plays poorly they’re toast. LMW has done nothing since the UCLA game. Turnover machine and his shots aren’t even close. Thankfully the team is heading home and playing the Washington schools to bounce back

    looking at the box score after watching this game just reaffirms how I felt going in. Tough to win when playing 5 on 8. When you try to take the ball to the basket and are getting constantly mugged, well it’s difficult to shoot better than 30%. I understand the beavs play a slow it down offenense to minimize opponents possessions. I get that. As many times as OSU attacked the rim………………..

    Total fouls: OSU 19, UA 11
    Free throws: OSU 3 of 5, UA 13 of 16
    Turnovers: OSU 19, UA 16
    Rebounds: OSU 27, UA 37

    How many times was a Beav mugged, pushed in the back, or someone (Brandon Ashley) climbed over their back on a rebound?

    How many times did UA attack the basket and get an “and 1” compared to OSU?
    So you’re gonna tell me that on average the Wildcats committed a personal foul roughly once every FOUR MINUTES? I get that the beavers can be limited offensively and accept that. However, this game wasn’t even a fair fight from what I witnessed. If it was called evenly, do the beavs win? Probably not, but at least they would have been in the game and had a fighting chance (they wouldn’t have been blown out by 23 and scored 34 total points). Pretty fucking hard to do that when the refs swallow their whistle when you attack the basket but do the opposite when your opponent does the same. It’s no fucking wonder no one besides Arizona has won in Tucson in 2 years.

      I couldn’t watch all of the game the officiating was so bad. They were showing replays of how great McConnell was on defense and on one of his steals you could clearly see him rake the Beav across the forearm to knock the ball loose. Walton even went silent for a brief second.

      Also, is “over the back” even a foul when Arizona plays? I guess before the game the opponents should be informed that Arizona will be jumping into backs to get offensive rebounds and this will be ok because of how great of athletes they are.

      Look, I don’t pretend that the Beavs win this game, but I am just so fucking sick of Arizona basketball and Sean MIller’s fat puffy face. It’s a bitter pill because I thought the O’Neill debacle and Lute’s “will I stay or will I go” act would end their dominance and it didn’t.

      I really didn’t think the Beavers were screwed a whole lot by the officials. Arizona played great defense. The game was just a case to me of one team having more skill and talent. Arizona moved their feet on defense and made the Beavers try as drive past them and finish and they couldn’t. Didn’t think officiating was much of an issue. Beavers were just dominated. It would have been closer if guys like LMW could hit perimeter shots but when they can’t hit outside shots they aren’t gonna compete with Arizona on the road for longer than a half
