        Based solely on Sanders (in)ability to pass a basketball in the limited time I’ve seen him play, I’m scared to see what he does with a football.

        I have watched Tanner Sanders play football, basketball, and baseball since Tanner was 12 (including as a teammate, and opponent, of my kids, from Little League through varsity ball at Crescent Valley). Tanner’s fantasy has always been to play QB for the Beavers, and it looks like Gary Andersen is going to give Tanner another shot (perhaps because Tanner is a potential dual-threat QB who is a decent open-field runner, and therefore a better fit than some of the other QBs on the roster such as Kempt and Del Rio).

        Tanner is a talented athlete. However, as I’ve suggested in prior posts, I don’t think Tanner has — or will have — the skills to be a successful PAC-12 QB. I continue to believe that Tanner would be much better as a WR for the Beavs (where I think he has the talent, after another year or two of conditioning and training, to make a real contribution to the program). I’m hoping and expecting that he goes back to WR at some point this Spring or Fall, and finally gives up on the fantasy of playing QB for the Beavers.

    No listed FB. Ricky Ortiz listed as TE.

    On the QB front, I think Kempt is gone. Maybe Del Rio as well. Vanderveen, McMaryion and Mitchell probably have the athleticism to compete for PT in the new system. Any thoughts on our starter next year?

      I still think Del Rio is the QB this year. He’s probably the best passer among them. While not a fit for GA’s offense, I’m guessing they don’t implement the full offense until they get the QB who fits. Everyone knew that the QB this year would not be a runner and I don’t think anyone wants Collins to start so early.

      Also GA didn’t have a running QB in the last half of last year. He managed. He’ll have to manage this year and probably next year without a running threat at QB.

        GA might be OK without a “running” QB per se, but I think that the QB will be expected to run in some capacity. A guy without great mobility would have to be overwhelmingly good as a pocket passer to win the job. I don’t see Del Rio running away with anything, even if he’s the best pocket passer today.

        GA’s line was “Our QB will win with his arms, his legs, and his mind.” Hard to imagine him giving up on one of those elements entirely.

        On a positive note, it is much easier for a mobile QB to be effective earlier in their career. Having the ability to scramble effectively gives you a lot of outs. Looking forward to QBs who can win before their Sr year…

      I think it’ll be McMaryion or Seth Collins. As McKalk pointed out, GA seems to really want Seth Collins to be the starter. Enrolled him early, the staff talked him up…etc. McMaryion is a pretty good passer on film, but not as good a runner as Collins. Mitchell can run a little but hops/jumps when he throws and looks to have a weak arm. Vanderveen can do a little of everything but is erratic. His experience gives him an intangible. My gut says McMaryion the likely starter and then Collins or Vanderveen as next up. I think Del Rio is out. He has nothing GA looks for.

        I tend to agree. It’ll either be McMaryion or Collins. I think Collins is a better runner though. Went back and watched some of McMaryion’s tape. It’s pretty easy to make some of those throws to a wide open receiver. Also made some poor decisions too. I saw at least one that was thrown into triple coverage. That’s an INT in the Pac-12. He was a 3 star guy so obviously he has some skills. However since this will be a complete offensive overhaul, the job is up for grabs.

        Andrews and Mitchell are both good players. I always have thought Andrews could be an elite lineman, can’t teach his size. Maybe new staff can help him and salvage Isaac and that class is still solid.

      having an extra day off between games should help tired legs. Although Cal played last night and will have 2 extra days. Beavs are 2-0 in the Pac-12 on Sunday’s this year. Stanford shoots 3’s just as well as Utah so the Beavs are gonna have to defend and not have any offensive lapses with zero pts for several minutes to have any chance.

      Nice to be in the game, but that was a shit last minute. Duvivier miss at the line, Reid unecessary foul, Payton giving up the ball to Sanders and then Olaf going to sleep on defense. I don’t like the similiarites to the USC road game.

    Seemed like a great half. A little unfortunate with Sanders travel that could have been huge bucket at the end of the half. The bench playing their best of the year. Damn N’Diayne showing a nice touch. I like what I see, hope they can keep it up.

    The end of that first half was straight trash, reminded me of how we ended the half at UCLA. Turn it over, don’t close out on a shooter who is clearly about to shoot, and another Beaver 5 point swing. Plus they didn’t even get the front end of the 1 and 1…ugh.

    Beav women was just a disappointing game. Stanford in the first half ran the same play about 8 times…one time I was sitting there at the game and I said “ball screen…pull up” and that’s exactly what happened. Only Hanson knew how to play the screen, which hurt us a lot. 2nd half was a few unfortunate missed threes. Women shot like 6 for 27 from three, with barely decent defense from Tree. I hope they play them again.

    Tinkle needs to get the team better at closing the last 2 minutes of first halves. Swings like that take games from 55% odds of winning to sub 30% in very little time and it is correctable but team continues to have these issues on the road. Own up and tell yourself we aten’t letting you score. Schaft allowing that shot was inexcusable.

      A coach doesn’t stop being good when they go on the road. That is complete bs. He’s doing well with what he’s working with. He’s not the one missing free throws and layups and taking bad shots. He puts them in position to succeed and has them play hard. That’s all you can ask for from a coach. The players just aren’t very good as a whole and thus they can’t finish plays

Team is about to be out of the NIT which is a fairly decent collapse considering they needed to lose quite a few and drop well below where they were to fall all the way to CBI. Not sure beating Oregon will be enough if we lose our Pac-12 Tourney opener as seems most likely as team is only good at home and neutral court probably isn’t as neutral for them as it should be.

    I don’t know about anyone else but this game is fucking infuriating. I’ve been able to handle the “inexperience” or whatever all season, but this is inexcusable. They can’t hit a shot, can’t finish a layup, can’t hit a free throw, and it’s an absolute known fact they will not get a rebound. How does it get this bad?

      It was probably the worst half of basketball from them this year (USC on the road is close), but it is what it is at this point. Some talent, but limited at many positions. Reinforcements are arriving, I just hope they are as advertised and can make meaningful contributions right away.

I am uncertain how the seniors and freshmen will mix next year, maybe it’s an NIT year and then in 2016/17 the sophmores with another nice class of freshmen make it happen.

    off topic but I just read about the 2nd ducks football player retiring with a year of eligibility left. So I went back and read the first article on O live about defensive lineman Sam Kamp retiring. I won’t link the article but will cut n paste this………..

    “When Sam Kamp, an Oregon redshirt junior defensive lineman, tromped onto the field Jan. 12 to play for a national championship against Ohio State, he weighed 292 pounds, just four pounds fewer than his previous season high, the heaviest he’d ever been during his four-year Duck career.

    A little more than two weeks later, Kamp left his south Eugene house Tuesday evening for a one-mile run featuring a steady incline toward a hilltop golf course. He weighed 270 pounds. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d run that far at once, he said, his voice catching for air minutes after he’d finished.”

    Here’s my question. How in the fuck does a human being drop 22 pounds in 2 weeks without starving themselves or being a complete meth addict?

        Even if they make nothing it’s been a great ride this season! They’ve played good ball at home and given us fans something to cheer about – a lot more than we expected for sure. AND, the prospects for the future are tremendous!
