29.Oct.2015 Hoops Discussion

Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast)

It’s a slow day so far, so how about a hoops discussion since we’re one week away from the season beginning (exhibition game).

Twitter blew up last night with Thompson’s 28 point performance.

Here‘s an entire recap.

Apparently I missed that Tres Tinkle is out of the boot and fully healed, but he dropped 15 points last night.

The big picture last night was that the young guys performed as advertised.

AnΒ  interesting debate today would be the starting lineup and depth. I’m thinking Payton, Duvivier, Thompson, Tinkle, Eubanks. Beavs will have to go small since all their bigs are hurt. That would put Bruce, Walker, and Olaf as backups until they get full strength. Once at full strength, the depth is pretty good (Reid is nice off the bench). I haven’t seen Rankocevic mentioned at all. Is he on the team? They could use him. It will be interesting to see if Noah continues with football, etc, as well.

Discuss.

    Another lineup could be:
    Payton, Bruce, Thompson, Tinkle, Eubanks. The more I think about it, this is probably better than starting Duvivier since it puts a true point guard out there. Then Duvivier could sub for Bruce or Payton since he has a mix of those skills. That is actually probably best.

    Should be better than last season, which IMO was pleasantly surprising still. Tinkle did a ton with nothing

    Part of the starting line-up will depend on who’s willing to put out the defensive effort. It’s nice to see guys be able to get the ball in the hoop, though.

    Sorta OT: Just saw in the feed that Pivec committed to the Lady Beavs. Second 5 * for Rueck in as many years and he pulled her from WA over a solid UW program and Stanford. Would be a monster class if Ionescu, not holding my breath, comes on board as well. If she doesn’t, I just don’t want to see her got to Hole.

        Not signed yet, but verbals from:

        Katharine Tudor, **** 6′ guard, Stockton, CA

        Janessa Thropay, *** 6’2″ F, Chino hills, CA

        Katharine Tudor, a 4* out of CA, same HS as Ali Gibson. From everything I’ve read, she’s one of the best shooters in this class.

        Janessa Thropay, a 3/4*, depending upon the site, F. Not as much press about her but ESPN says she boards and can step out and shoot it some. Sounds like a replacement for Devan Hunter.

    The bigs will have to rotate often until Gomis gets back. I don’t think they’ll be able to play effectively for more than 5-8 min at a time.

    Thompson while showing good things in the scrimmage will eventually have to adjust when defenders become physical with him. He’s pretty light. Beav’s were the worst in 3 pt shooting last year. Thompson should improve that greatly.

    Payton and Thompson should lead the way on scoring. Essentially replacing Robbins scoring from last year plus a little more.

    The keys to this year is maintaining the defensive efforts from last year and improving on rebounding at both ends. Scoring should improve naturally with the freshman.

      Tinkle is a great 3 point shooter by all accounts (and the film I watched). He should also help; not just Thompson.

        I think Tinkle will take longer to get adjusted. Thompson looks like he’ll be able to step in and significantly contribute.

        Mostly I think this because of all the competition that Thompson faced in southern california. Quality of competition day in day out is much better. I’m predicting Tinkle will be good in spurts but Thompson will be more consistent.

        This is only for this year.

            How is it hyper? It’s just a question.

            Is being a woman an inferior thing?

            That’s what the comment means to me as I read it. If it not intended that way, then I’m just wrong. Then it means that being a woman is a superior thing. Then it means the comment was meant to praise SC, and I just read it wrong.

            What does it mean to you, in a non-hyperserious way? What do those words mean as they are written? Do you have a light-hearted answer to those questions?

            Oh brother. What’s it all mean to me? It means I was making a flippant reference to the earlier comment comparing saying someone’s an asshole to death threats.

            As for Dwill’s comment, yes, he’s questioning Collins’ manhood. In a football context, that is generally in insult because we all know players don’t exactly try getting hyped up on estrogen and “feminine” feelings before a game. That does not mean those things do not have their value, but it is not in a football context. A sort of “you throw like a girl” which while isn’t the kind of insult I’d personally lob, isn’t something I’d read terribly into and get worked up over, unlike you. And I’m not a girl, so easy for me to say, I imagine you retorting – but even when similar things are said about demographics I am a member of, I don’t raise a stink either. Because being able to talk shit once in a while is better than all the PC being injected freaking everywhere in society.

            I can barely believe I’m wasting my time explaining this to you, because the battle lines were probably drawn before anything was posted given your SJW tendencies. You basically like to perceive slights and injustices so you can use them as ammunition to attack others and bolster your own sense of moral superiority.

            See? Now I’m also being too serious about this crap, and you can see how much fun it makes the the thread.

            It’s not my topic. And I fail to see what PC has to do with it also.

            But I see that you do admit it is an insult to women. So that does answer my question, and I did not read it incorrectly.

            Wrong heterocage. I’m talking about the white male oppression of females. And how all white men are rapists, even if the female consents to sex. Which includes marriage. “Heterocage” is a feminist buzz word. A few others include cis-gendered, White Privilege, Hate Speech, Trigger Warning, Rape Culture, Patriarchy and a few others. Basically it’s nonsense…..or more of an excuse why ugly chick’s can’t get laid.

            Interesting. I’ve never heard the word used in that context. I’ve also never heard of trigger warning. I don’t understand the push back against hate speech or patriarchy. They’re just words that define certain things. Policies that seek to hedge them are a separate issue and should be discussed individually. But there’s nothing nonsensical in two definitions.

            Rape culture I understand and disagree as a term. It’s too broad a term. If talking about a lazy or misogynistic law enforcement, administrative or coaching group, just use those words instead. That way you don’t envelop whole swaths of people in some vagary meant to be precise.

            I’m not sure why you think white privilege is nonsense. It’s how me and my friends would steal Playboys as kids. The one black kid in our circle would go in the store, and clerks would follow him around, paying us no mind. We had that shit figured out at age 12. Why is it difficult for you?

            Why is it even PC?

            Words have meanings. Do they not? I’m asking a question, and all I’m getting is some bullshit deflection about PC? I really want to know what a vulva has to do with this. Why write something if there is no meaning to it? I don’t see any humor in it, because it makes zero sense to me. You could put the word “tree” in there, and I would ask, “What does that have to do with anything?”

            Would you get all hot and shitty with your PC pukology if the word was tree, and I wanted to know what was wrong with trees?

            Why don’t you tell me what those words mean? Or is it “PC” to even read them?

            You mean LLM, right? Left Labia Minora – which can also mean the left leg of a disgruntled frosh QB.

            Odds StCH transfers now are greater than 40% and that Jack’s an overreacting feminist 85+%.

            There is only one labia minora, and it is certainly not a part of a leg. Where did you study anatomy?

            Besides, I think Tlingit is referring to the labia majora. I don’t know whose left he’s talking about, the woman’s or his.

            I need an actual MD (or anatomy major) to tell me if there is only one labia majora. I honestly don’t know. Does it stop at the perineum and another starts? Does it end there, like a horseshoe, then wrap around the pubis? Is there only one labia majora. It looks to me like there are two.

            What does it mean?

            I always thought that when a man thought with his penis (which can’t happen) he was chasing the object(s) of his desire. But this usage does not imply that really dumb idea.

    Y’all already read what I said in the last thread. That’s a good point about the defense though; it starts at that end and then offense is created within the flow of a general set. That’s what makes this so tough is that we are going to be watching a small lineup go against teams that go 6’1-6’3-6’6-6’9-6’11 so we give up a LOT of size at the conventional 3 and 4 spots. Thompson is serviceable on defense but he’s in there for his offense. I need a better look at the defense against a foreign opponent to really gauge where they are. Iona on November 17th is the real first look.

    Also, we finally got a proper pronunciation of Rakocevic’s name: Raw-korch-a-vich. PA guy gonna have a field day.

    Rueck with the nice pick up of Pivec. Real deal. Chances seem low on Ionescu though, since her brother just walked on at hole.

      Is the Liberty LB Himphill a greyshirt offer? With Hughes-Murray committing you’d think the kid would have a bit of pressure to verbal now. He sure looks fast.

      I’ve followed Hughes-Murray for a bit and frankly I wasn’t too impressed with his Jr. film. Seemed to have the body but a bit slow afoot. His Sr. highlights show another gear and strength – looks a lot fast. Seems like a good tackler and violent at attack.

        Weaker in what way? I think you’re referring to physicality, not mentality. So that would be true on average. I don’t know why love mitigates that difference, if indeed it even needs to be mitigated. Women simply have different strengths than men. But they share more strengths than there are differences, by far. So concentrating on one is disingenuous when it’s really a symbiotic relationship.

        And this doesn’t speak to any truth. If it does, and I am to take your words in defense literally, we are calling someone mentally weak and compare that mental weakness to womanhood with more than imprecise language… thinking it is funny in some way.

      Not wanting Hillary (and not listening to Obama’s campaign) is why we have another Wall Street tool in office. People fooled themselves into thinking Obama was only saying a couple catch phrases instead of hearing that he was just as far to the right of center as HRC is.

      The idea that a woman’s body part is funny, and that supplants reason is what I’m getting at. I honestly don’t know what a “strained” penis would have to do with anything either. But at least he has one.

      Why not go straight at the matter? Nobody has yet said he just has an inflated ego not worthy of his reality. Instead, it becomes about a really poor so-called joke. And it really does deserve to be about that, since it immediately distracts from the original topic with irrational and weird language. I hope none of you are calling for English to become the official language in this country, because this is a major fail… and you would be a hypocrite… on top of having dim wit.

    So before the vulva injury thread closes, I’d like to share a little story:

    I was in 7th grade health class, and we were in the sex-ed/gendered anatomy unit. My teacher tells us that one year a female student came up to her after class.

            Jack, I’m only speaking from memory and not looking at a book, but my recollection is liberty was when the troops were released at the end of the workday to go into the Ville. Leave is something you accrued on something like a two day a month basis. If you took a day of leave it was administratively charged to your service record. There is quite a bit of difference between the two.

            I was with the 3rd Battallion 9th Marines on an LST. For some reason, in July of 1974, we were in drydock for two weeks at Pubic Bay. The Marines nothing to do so every day they let us go at 1400 and we didn’t have to be back across shit river and on the base until midnight. I kid you not it was two of the best weeks of my life. It’s not describable to someone who hasn’t been there, and Tijuana doesn’t even come remotely close. Occasionally I’ll cross paths with someone like me who was there in the early days and swap some great stories. Man!!

            I know what you’re saying. But it’s a shit argument. Liberty off the boat is leave. Liberty underway is more accurately segregated from leave. There’s a point to the language. I never had a CO who called it anything. I have been dumped on base by SP, who used the words, “leave terminated.”

            In the end, liberty is just shore leave… technically… liberty is leave. And because I wasn’t in alpha mode, someone wants to play.

            That’s fine. Play away. Chitty chitty bang bang

    I just finished watching the post-Colorado edition of “The Dive.” There is a scene with Baldwin in the post game locker room slumping against of post. Looks tired and defeated. Sort of like Jeb Bush campaigning. I can see why GA brought in Crowton, although at almost 60, does he have much energy left/

    I can’t believe this type of television exposure is good for anything. They should consider backing out for the remainder of the season, as the losses mount.

    Watching the show it’s apparant that GA is staring to run out of motivational tools. Most coaches, myself included, have a bag of tricks to help the team through the rough spots. GA has run through his material and is starting to repeat himself. Most coaches don’t have enough motivational gimmicks to get through much more than seven or eight defeats before the kids tune out and start thinking of self-preservation. JB

      As well he should and that’s not taking into consideration his “habit”.

      Speaking of his “habit”: if he’s not chugging diet cokes during the game and goes without for 3 or 4 hours that too would contribute to looking/being tired.

      Imo anyone with a habit like that definitely has a few screws loose. and again IMO is questionable as being a leader of young men.

        My guess is he committed and then the marketing department came up with that idea. They have stepped up their game. The comics were really nice…recruits seeing themselves in the gear acting like superheros. Pretty effective stuff on both the conscious and subliminal levels.

        If he winds up going to Utah this will be embarrassing.

    I am not too impressed. Look how thick, short, and somewhat bow-legged his legs are…I’m not making fun of the guy for it. It’s out of his control. But, I don’t see how that translates to Pac 12 play. I feel this is the first Riley-esque recruit who is quite a reach.

      Agree, doesn’t look fast enough to play LB at the college level, appears to dominate because of his size and strength and those advantages disappear at the next level. I watch his Jr tape someone posted earlier and he is getting beat down field on kickoff coverage and chased down from behind on a long run. Does appear to have a good feel for the game vs being just the most talented kid on the field that is using his athleticism to make plays.

        I fail to see how he’s Riley-esque though. He’s already 40 pounds bigger and three inches taller than any Riley project. If he’s what fills in for depth, then we’re already doing better. Put a bunch like him on the field, and tell them to just go blow up stuff.

        I wonder if they needed to offer him to create a pipeline/land another recruit (i.e. Garcia)…

        With limited scholarships this cycle it wouldn’t make sense otherwise.

        I see a ST/scout team player here, but the services have him at 3-stars, so maybe I’m missing something. His lower body looks awkward (stout, bow legged, etc), and that is a lot to overcome in many aspects, including injury. Maybe he has some intangibles that will help the team.

          If he’s going to be a hole plugging MLB then having good instincts and a stout base is a good place to start. Should be able to add the 20 lbs of upper body muscle without losing much speed, get out there and crack some skulls.

            I agree. His 40 time has sources of 4.56 and 4.84 that I saw. I thought he looked like a wrecking ball with a stout base. I also thought he looked quick with a solid start when running. I definitely think he lacks the top end speed and won’t be catching many from behind on long runs. His skill set is what you would expect for the most part for an inside linebacker, which is what he said the coaches wanted him for. I think his shear strength will still translate well in college. We haven’t had very many 250# inside linebackers recently and he could easily be one as he is already listed 6 foot 3 inch and 240# by scout and 225# by rivals. I can see how his body type is kind of awkward, but it actually may be benefit is some ways.

            Apparently she actually did use the watermarked version in her lodge today, then later removed it after realizing it came from this site. Curious if any blitzer on here can tell me if still using this one from nemec’s story? Because again, that would mean she used it without permission.

            You’d think she would just simply ask, probably say yes. Instead she just takes. What’s the saying? “It’s easier to ask for forgiveness later than it is to get permission now”

            Now now, the Machado heart is a fickle thing. You know how it is, first she gets taken in and infatuated with the flash and earrings of Seth. They meet up, have some nice interviews together… She believes with all her heart he’s the one. But then time goes on, she matures, and realizes she wants a man in her life with a little more QB substance. Sure she didn’t give Nick a second glance back in week 5 when she was young and foolish. But now she is thinking about settling on a man to lead the offense for the future.

    OT: Surprise..(really)…..Lindsay tweets link to Brenda Tracy’s own account in SI of the rape under Riley’s watch. Must expect readers to focus only on Tracy’s classy last two paragraphs and not on the entire story of the crime and “consequences”.

    I was surprised she (Brenda) gave Riley, along with Pres. Ray, equal credit for, “healing between me and Oregon State”. This after outlining MR’s original response. She is a strong lady and has gone a long way toward putting that crime behind her.

    Tracy highlights the need for action at next weeks meeting between school presidents and the Commissioner. Will Dr. Ray bring this up? Will MR weigh in from afar?

          True. So, what possibilities remain: 1) Seth doesn’t know this, 2) Seth knows but does not think this applies to HIM, 3) For whatever reason, Seth stretched cold AND hurt himself so badly that he cannot recover between early Thursday and late Saturday afternoon, 4) We aren’t getting the entire story.

          At this point, I’ll go with #2 and #4.

            I wonder if the team does stretch cold or not. The more recent info is that it’s not helpful and can lead to injuries. In Seth’s case, I think he has an injured ego and coach advised he stay home to think things over and make a decision.

      I think he caught the coaches off guard a little with that commitment coming tonight. I think they expected him to take one more official visit to another school first, but he decided not to. I’m guessing from the lack of coach tweets going out after this one, that we can consider this commit “unofficial” at this moment, but it will probably stand.

      it’s a cover story; just like Grimble and Storm. It’s pretty clear Seth didn’t take the demotion (which it was effectively) well and I’m guessing he faked the injury thinking in his juvenile way “that’ll show em.” Here’s the thing though: since Collins not only did not progress but regressed, and made the offense all too predictable, with him on the pine (or in Corvallis, same diff) we get BOTH a better run game and passing game. The first, because Mitchell will hand off to Nall or Storm or whomever on the read option rather than hogging the ball, and when he passes, he’s 10-15% more likely to connect with a receiver. It seems clear now in retrospect that the staff thought Collins would both show better judgment on the read option and pass game with enough game experience, but neither happened. We can question why it took so long for someone other than Seth to get some serious playing time, but better late than never as the saying goes.

    Oregon State is probably my No. 1 right now, seeing as how I could maybe come in and start immediately. That, to me, is amazing.”

    One of the biggest selling points, for Unutoa-Whitson, was the the coaching staff sold him on substance, not flash.

    “The coaches are telling me that if I want to come for the materialistic things, don’t come,” he said. “I’m buying in to this ‘starting young and making a new team’ thing. They are graduating a lot of seniors and it’s a young team. I want to make an impact real quick, get the opportunity to display my talent.”

    Despite his low rating as a prospect, Unutoa-Whitson has been highly productive on the field, registering 12 sacks as a junior.

    Oregon State now has 15 known commitments in the class of 2016, but with four defenders added to the mix this week, it’s clear that number could rise at any time

      I would interpret his statement to mean graduating seniors at his position and the defensive line. There are 2 senior defensive ends and 2 senior defensive tackles. So looking at it position specific makes it a lot of seniors graduating. Heck, that is about 25% of total seniors.
