8pm on Pac-12 Network.

This is their last realistic shot at a win. It’s looking like the Beavs are going to fall short of even the NIT, and their only hope of post-season play will be to win the Pac-12 tournament.

Go Beavs

    8pm on a Saturday? Yeesh!

    At least I had time on a nice day for some fishing.

      Blue-winged olive (atenella) nymphs… in case anyone cared. Egg-flies work too. Yanking them n on every third cast. Two of three are immature or not clipped.

      The spring run is going to be epic. I have never seen life like this in these rivers.

          Yesterday was the McKenzie. Tons of rainbows and cutthroat.

          Clipped steelhead are hard to find right now on the coast rivers. But the natives are biting like crazy.

            I usually wait for the May Fly hatch on the Deschutes.

            Don’t think I’ve ever fished the McKenzie. My grandpa used to tell me of the “speckled” trout he used to catch there and Middle Fork of the Willamette. Even saying he lost all his flies once and was wearing a red shirt so ripped some off the tail and caught a couple with that…

            March Brown hatch on the McKenzie used to be pretty good. That was at least 10 years ago though. Been that long since I fished it. I prefer the high lakes. Although Diamond was pretty shitty last year. Lava Lake over by Bachelor is another sleeper (shhhh). There’s some hogs in there if you know where to look. Watched a guy pull in a 26″ Rainbow while fishing from a canoe just out from the reeds by the resort several years back.

            March brown was pretty good last year. But that’s a couple weeks away. I floated a couple to see what happened…. not much… a couple nibbles from six or seven inchers. Midges work better right now. At least the young were striking on those.

            can’t remember the last time I fished a river. Been a long time. Probably gonna make a trip to Crescent or Diamond next month. Unless we get some serious late winter weather, everything in central oregon is going to open early.

            Funny… I can’t remember the last time I’ve been on a lake with a pole. I have to be knee deep before I’m having fun. And I grew up on lakes.

            But the fish are just crap. I’ll take trout over sunnies, crappies, bass, northerns, bluegills, etc. I’ll even take them over lake trout, which taste terrible IMO. Walleye are decent, but they’re an easy catch and zero fight. It’s like pulling in a stick.

            The best fight I ever had on a lake was when I pulled in a four pound bully from the shore. I thought I snagged a tire at first, but it was all tension until the fish tried to shift. I was about ready to cut the line before that. Actually, that was one of my favorite spinners, and I was young and dumb enough to probably try to dive down and free it. I have friends without fingers because of the same stupidity.

            I fished Big Lava in the early 80’s with a friend who had a boat. He liked to drive out to the center, drop anchor and sit there all day drinking beer. Bored me silly. But a great view! We fished there until they poisoned it with rotenone (sp?) to get rid of the trash fish that had been illegally introduced. I’ve never fished it again, but your post wakes up the memories.

            I finally convinced him to go to East Lake and let me run the boat we did pretty well trolling the white slide with frog flatfish.

            I’m now strictly a river fisherman and fished all the rivers on the east side pretty well until about 1985 when I was promoted and moved away for 5 years. After I came back I was married..with children and life changed.

    Gotta love the pessimism on AB.

    I think they can still beat Cal (don’t think it will happen, but it’s possible), definitely can get Oregon at Gill, and Colorado tonight I think they can do it. 9-9 isn’t anything to scoff at imo.

    Beavs still have legit shot at NIT as long as tonight is a win. Otherwise that opportunity will be all but extinguished. Then they need to beat Oregon at home and the case is decent. Still would also help to win atleast one in the Pac-12 Tourney but maybe their story and fan support gets them a spot. Still possible. Tinks and the guys have to fight out some more wins. Beating Oregon will look good and although I don’t love the odds they could steal one in the Bay.

    Beat Oregon and Colorado and they have a good shot at an NIT berth. Probably puts them as 5th or 6th in the conference. Beat Washington or USC in the Pac-12 Tournament and they’ll be in decent shape of an NIT spot. If they somehow stole a game in the quarters against UCLA or Stanford and they’d be a lock. So NIT still very much possible but a loss tonight is a major blow. Need LMW and Olaf to start producing. Olaf especially. He’ll get open threes, he has to start hitting. His outside shooting is his major value to the team, when he’s not making the shots he really doesn’t help his team

    Were these TV guys inside Gill? On Gary’s dunk Parker said more than once that Tinkle told him to go ahead; feeling the showboating by CU merited a response. OTOH the TV guys said, “Wonder what Tinkle thinks of that?”
    Just one of those side issues which give this observer a chuckle.

    After the first half I’d hoped for some rest for the first string in the second; no true opportunity….take the win.

      Parker and Tinkle have a relationship, and the former knows what’s going on with the latter. TV crew gets info in their heads from TV truck.

    Horowitz tweets, “OSU coach Wayne Tinkle said forward Daniel Gomis (10 pts, five rebounds, four blocks) broke his nose in Colorado game”

        There are photos of him hopping around with the team on the court after the win with nothing on his nose. Hopefully, not serious enough to keep him from playing.

          I’ve not found any other source to confirm the post by Horowitz. Nearly 40 minutes have past since the post.

            Coach Tinkle mentioned it in the post game press conference. Yes he did break his nose

            Jeebus H. Crisco! Can they improve the sound quality of these things the same way they’ve turned around the performance on the floor?

            And somewhere in there, Tinkle also said that Gomis is, basically, playing on one leg. What’s that about? It’s been reported that the leg has healed.

    Not just the Beavs . . . http://www.denverpost.com/colleges/ci_27575780/college-basketball-teams-score-at-lowest-rate-many

    Good to see the Beavs effort last night. It was lacking the past few games, either because they were tired or the competition was better. I’m thinking the former.

    Looks a lot better for the road trip now. If they can hold on and snag a win or two over the last 3 games, they get a week, or so, off before the Pac-12 starts. Win a couple there and who knows…

    I wish Olaf would get pissed off from the other teams shoving him around all the time and fight back. Pissed like Tinkle did on the GP2 charge call.

      He looks exhausted, unmotivated, or scared. Didn’t seem that way earlier in the season.

    Some re-hash of the FB coaching changes here, but maybe worth a quick scan. The comments section caught my eye; no Poly community in Corvallis? I thought most Poly’s said otherwise.

    Beavs up 7-3 after 1.5, Jake Thompson has thrown 60 pitches in 2 innings. Hmmm, lets see, at 10 pitches per out that works out to being on pace for a 270 pitch game?? This could take a while!

    Ducks beat Utah and are almost certainly going to make NCAA Tourney now. Oregon State beating them also pretty much gives the Beavers 95% odds of making the NIT because it will be a higher quality win. Take one in the Bay and beat Oregon and OSU could still climb as high as a #3 or 4 seed in the NIT. No Bay win but beating UO should maintain us around #6 NIT seed heading into the Pac-12 Tourney. Losing our opener won’t be ideal but it will be against a closely rated team on neutral site so I believe OSU still would have enough for a NIT invite. Beat UO and win our Pac-12 tourney opener and we would probably move to a 4 or 5 seed in the NIT bracket. A lot to fight for.
