    Surprising stat of the day – Tres Tinkle is shooting 28% on the year. If he shoots near 40% today, the Beavs run away with this game.

      He gets to the line a lot, though.
      I think he’s going to be really good by the end of the year. He’s been showing flashes and just needs more time to put it all together, but he has a well rounded game.

        Gets his hands on a ton of balls (lol) on defense too. Very active on both ends and not afraid of contact. He’s gonna be real good once the 3 starts falling for him

          I think he’s trying to figure out what his offensive game is going to be. Not too bad on D but he doesn’t have enough athleticism at this level to do what he did in Montana obviously. The double pumps amd forces have to go. He’s been pretty good at getting to the line thus far but in conference play he’ll get his shot swatted,

          Wish we had Cam Oliver.

    Nice to see Reid back. Gotta assume he steals a lot of Olaf’s minutes, and so far he’s been a difference maker with a FT and nice rebound/outlet pass that I can’t imagine Olaf pulling off.

      As soon as I say that, he throws a ball over the Center’s head and then fouls. I guess this is “rust”…

      I still think he’s a huge upgrade over Olaf long term. Olaf is fine end of game/when a 3 is needed.

    This teams been having way too many stretches of play where not a single player on the team could throw the ball into the ocean. Very feast or famine on offense. Defense has been much worse defending the 3 too. Not gonna make the tourney if those issues aren’t cleaned up along with the rebounding woes

      To be fair, the scouting report says let them shoot all day.

      And we’re just starting to get a scoring rotation down. Stevie tore it up in crunch time. Malcolm and Jarmal became factors when nothing else was working.

    Tres should not play nearly as much as he should. When he puts his head down, it ends up as either

    1. Charge call
    2. Free throws
    3. Gets his sh*t beat

    Plus he was left in. I don’t know what game you guys are watching, but Olaf has been more effective overall than Tres. He’s more within himself and more in the flow of the offense. It’s irritating when he puts his head down.

    I would’ve rather seen Langston-Olaf-Gary-Cheikh-Malcolm in at the end with Stevie and Drew with possibly subbing in Jarmal. At least Tinkle has a good problem which is depth.

      Yes, he’s struggling getting quality shots and forcing stuff, like the charges. I’m a bit surprised his leash is as long as it has been thus far. I think he’ll get there, but he’s not on the court with a bunch of short, slow white boys like back in Montana high school, and it shows in his stats.

        The offense comes to a screeching halt when he gets the ball. In addition, imagine how pissed you would be if you were losing minutes and you are more effective than the guy getting starters minutes. Bruce, Langston, and Olaf all have legitimate arguments.

        Plus a lot of the rotations were weird this game. Why was Jarmal in at the same time as Tres? Why wasn’t Eubanks or N’diaye in near the end? I wish I could pick Tinks’ brain.

      Disagree, he’s getting the right amount of minutes. Tres needs to adjust his game and he needs floor time to figure it out. His role on the team is much different than what he was in high school. He was the star, now he’s a sub. Shot selection is what he needs to really work on.

      Thompson is adjusting better because his role isn’t that much different than what he did in high school.

        27 minutes is far too much to figure it out. 20 max and don’t play him the entire 2nd half, give him some breaks. I’m not saying bench him. He is an important piece of this teams future.

        Tres is a good looking prospect. Not sure why people are down on him after 7 games. He’s looked great at times, bad at others, which is what you’d expect, but his overall game is balanced and he’s heady. He also looks like he’ll develop into a good leader as he ages.

        His biggest issue right now is finishing when he’s in the lane. He keeps having to settle for FTs, which isn’t bad, but it would be nice to see him finish those plays.

          I’m not down on him, I think he’s gonna be really good, he has a solid all around skill set. Once he can get his shot under control he should be better off. But his leash is FAR too long for what he is doing. Should he get more minutes than Langston, Jarmal, or Olaf? Absolutely not, not right now until he shows something. He played 17 minutes in the 2nd half, tied with Malcolm for most.

          I also don’t really agree that he has looked “great” at times. Nor heady, at least not consistently. What times are you referring to? I seldom see him consistently finishing without attracting a lot of traffic and getting some lucky foul calls. That’s not heady, because going into a forest of trees isn’t the smartest option. His defense is pretty good though.

      No shit! They called little stuff for a while then didn’t call anything for a while. Then little stuff again. Called fouls on Nevada for a while then on the Beavs for a while…no consistency whatsoever during the game.

      Reid’s dunk/foul was right in front of me – the ref blew that call so bad, that even the explanation on radio after the game didn’t get it right.

      2 of the refs were terrible I hope the coaches send the game film to the P12 office.

        the charge called on Reid was absolute horseshit! And you are correct, the explanation given by the OSU assistant coach that he said the refs gave them made absolutely zero sense. Something about the circle underneath the basket doesn’t matter off of a rebound. Except there was NO FUCKING REBOUND. Those refs were so clueless it was pathetic and at times seemed they had money on Nevada. I think it was coach Thompson that said after the game Nevada was the aggressor on offense and they were rewarded for it. OSU tried it and he stated, um, it just didn’t work out. No shit. I cannot count how many times a Nevada player crashed the boards and came over a beav players back. I don’t know if those refs would have made it out alive had Nevada won.

        And don’t even get me started on the play late in the game where the Nevada player was headed out of bounds under their own basket and threw the ball to FUCKING NO ONE and they awarded the ball to Nevada? After initially calling it OSU ball?

      no it DOES NOT mean Oregon goes to the Alamo bowl. The Alamo may pick between Oregon, USC, Utah and WSU. Bowls are permitted to drop down one spot in the standings if they wish. Oregon played in the Alamo two years ago and in Texas again last year. Would not surprise me to see them take one of the other 3 teams. Utah and USC have never played in the Alamo bowl. WSU was there in 1994.

    Two assistants from UW won’t be back, one their sp teams guy (although he also covered D-line).

    Wonder if this means Jonathan Smith’s spot is solid; the departing Brent Pease was receivers coach and has served under Petersen as OC and QB coach. If Petersen had doubts about Jonathan seems he wouldn’t be dumping Pease.

      could be academics

      CORVALLIS — Men’s basketball signee Cameron Oliver will not enroll at Oregon State for the 2014-15 season, Beavers head coach Wayne Tinkle told The Oregonian on Tuesday afternoon.

      “We obviously wish him nothing but the best with his career path, both academically and athletically,” Tinkle said.

      A 6-foot-8, 225-pound power forward out of Sacramento’s Grant High School, Oliver would’ve had a shot at helping fill the void of Sacramento King Eric Moreland. OSU, after all, doesn’t return a big man who logged more than 10.8 minutes per game in 2013-14. Gone are stalwarts Angus Brandt and Devon Collier, who teamed with Moreland to form one of the Pac-12’s top frontcourts.

      Oliver, who missed his entire junior season with a torn ACL, emerged on the recruiting landscape late. He bypassed the early signing period in November, eager to boost his stock with a strong late-season run. Arizona, Arizona State and Missouri showed interest during a breakout final high school campaign in which Oliver led the Pacers to the semifinals of their sectional championships.

      Oliver signed with the Beavers on the first day of the late signing period in April. When OSU fired Craig Robinson in early May after six seasons, Oliver stayed loyal to the Beavers. Much of the summer, Tinkle’s staff expected Oliver to join the team in September.

      Sitake is on everyone’s list, but there are only so many coaches qualified who are LDS AND in good standing with their church. Lots of chatter in Utah, that Whittingham is done with Chris Hill. BYU’s safe pick would be Robert Anae. Some are saying Andy Reid might be interested.

      While it may be too early to be fair, I’m not sold on Sitake. I imagine he’s a pretty effective recruiter for the defense though. Mendenhall’s departure surprised me, more because of the destination than that he left. He was probably ready for a change.

      If Sitake went to BYU that would make for a lot of “friendly” competition in recruiting (OSU/Utah/BYU).

      Who might Andersen hire if Sitake did leave?

            Well, Utah State was just 6-6 this year, not quite the same as 10 or 11 wins. Chuckie Keeton just was not the same player after all of his injuries. Wells needs a comeback year next season to be an “it” HC again. I’ve noticed his name is not coming up in the coaching carousel this time. Mtn West is starting to show a little more parity. Boise is coming back to the pack and others like New Mexico are becoming more competitive.

            I think that’s the best argument, but with BYU open he could go there, too. GA is hard to read…he says he isn’t Mormon, yet he’s spent most of his life in Utah and left WI to get back to the West. GA says all the right things, but I don’t necessarily trust him to stay if a job he prefers opens up.

            my sense is that Andersen truly has bought in to the Corvallis “ideal college town” vibe. Even Sitake is quoted to same effect but as a coordinator he’s always going to keep his options open, and you can’t blame him. For better or worse, with Andersen and this staff stuff going on in Utah (including BYU) is always going to be the Achilles heel relative to his durability in Corvallis, just like tumult at SC was a wedge vis a vis Riley.

        Chris Hill (Utah AD) has had relationships that eroded and became toxic over time with both of his long tenured head football coaches (McBride and Whittingham). Urban Meyer wasn’t there long and was hugely successful. Hill truly believes Utah should be an elite football and basketball school and if a coach can’t get there he is going to find someone else. He’s pissed about Utah blowing their opportunity this year. GA should approach very cautiously if this is really his destination job. He won’t be there long if he can’t win at least South titles.

            Good for the program, bad for the “fallen coaches”! He took some shit for the post Majerus hoops turnover, but ended up with a winner in Coach K. My guess is that GA would not be enough of a name for Chris Hill now that Utah is in the P-12 and whatever the circumstances and legitimate reasons, Andersen is semi-tarnished goods after this past season with the way Hill thinks.

        True that Sitake can only get better at OSU. With a couple solid recruiting cycles I think we will see a consistently stiffer defense. Question is how much interest does BYU have in Sitake and would Whitt seriously consider BYU himself. Seems weird to leave a Pac-12 school for BYU unless Whitt and Hill have differences. If somehow Whitt would consider it at the right price, Utah seems like a tough place for Sitake to be under pressure to perform at a high level very quickly. Utah may like Sitake to some extent but making him their HC is a stretch and riskier than some candidates. I would take Matt Wells in that situation if I was Utah. Wells to BYU even makes some sense as a step above USU but it looks like Maryland has interest in Wells.

          I don’t think “Wells to Utah” can happen. I’ve never heard that Wells is LDS, he grew up in Oklahoma. He ended up as a player at Utah St. because then HC Charlie Weatherbie had some interest in Wells when he was an assistant at Arkansas and then recruited him when he became HC. One must be a church member in good standing to be considered for the BYU job.

          Andrzej Hughes-Murray — Inside Linebacker — Recruited by Sitake and Tuiaki
          Joah Robinett — Weakside Defensive End — Recruited by Sitake
          Riley Sharp — Tight End — Recruited by Tuiaki

          Like I said, FWIW

    Who knew Wilcox was a funny guy trying to recreate a 40’s vaudeville bit on the USC sideline Saturday night.

        Sark is such an Ass Hat. I’m no USC fan, but that’s complete bs. It isn’t your employers responsibility to babysit you away from work. At my place of employment coming in intoxicated is grounds for immediate termination. Sounds like Sark was given multiple chances.

        For those of you who felt sorry for this snake oil salesman: take a look now. He is scum.

          Alcoholism is a disability in California? Really? This state sooo sucks. And yes I live here. It is no wonder businesses are flying out of this state. It is called Taxifornia for a reason because our state government allows crap like this and we pay for it in some way or another.

            Addiction is physiological as well as psychological and is definitely a disability. Alcoholism is NOT “being drunk”.

            Becoming addicted is not a choice, it just happens. Have a little empathy.

    I’m not worried about losing Sitake, Andersen can pick up the slack on defense. OSU should not pay him more to keep him here. He’s already one of the highest paid assistants in the conference and nation.

    People were predicting Sitake would leave at some point for a HC job. So if it’s now, then so be it. There’s plenty of good DC candidates out there.

      I agree, but it would slow the rebuild for sure. Although you have to ask if it would be better now or a couple years from now. Advantage to Sitake leaving now is it is early in the rebuild. You can get a new guy in right away and maybe build something in that outlast what would have been a short stop over by Sitake. Sitake leaving later means the rebuild continues, and faster then without him, as Sitake is a good recruiter. I’d rather have him stay for now but honestly I won’t join Sark at the bar if he goes now.

      Yes giving Sitake a raise would probably be the worst-case scenario here. I’d rather let him go than pile on on top of his already pretty ludicrous salary.

      Scott Shafer is available… unless he isn’t anymore. Like I said above… Whitt. Phil Snow is more than capable… and from the West Coast and familiar with the PAC.

      Kauha’aha’a most likely.

      “Over the past few weeks, I pledged that Oregon State University will act quickly to address the concerns of racial injustice that have been shared recently by many of our students to ensure that our university is a safer, more just, caring and inclusive community,”

      Interesting, I haven’t seen anything in the news about this. Seems like these things end up on the news before the universities have a chance to respond.

        OSU students grow up and learn to have adult dialogues because Ray listens to them and responds in kind instead of being a part of the “P’shaw!” crowd.

        Proper diplomacy is the best and wisest pre-emptive action always.

      I believe I saw on his twitter feed that Taylor Thomas believes he’s got whatever grade he needed to be able to step into this class. I don’t think he played for the JUCO that he attended either.

      Missions last 2 years (unless the kid quits early, which has happened in the past) so anybody we’d get would have been class of 2014. The one Mormon mission kid from Wisconsin’s class of 2014 is Ula Tolutau and he’s recently been offered.

        Where did you read that Tulatao had been offered recently? I see an offer showing on that 247 link, but it doesn’t show it on his timeline. Maybe it’s just assumed?

        With Thomas, call me skeptical, but i don’t think I’ve ever seen Thomas write a tweet without a miss-spelled word somewhere in it, so I’ll only believe he’s academically eligible to play when I see him set foot on the Reser turf.

        “Me in my future runningback coach ”

        Also, there’s one other returning mission kid who was a Utah commit and is brothers with one of our 2016 signees (who is going on his mission)
        That is Amone Finau. His brother Sione is a recent OSU commit, but we won’t see him for 2 years. Amone was a 3* RB out of high-school in 2014. I don’t know if we’ve offered him yet, but would make sense with our current staff, and the fact we offered his younger brother recently.

          “Where did you read that Tulatao had been offered recently?”

          I want to say twitter, but it may have been deleted because I can’t find it now. Or I’m getting my dudes confused, but I remember looking at his tape two years ago and liking him. All I can find right now is one vague hint about him coming here in a tweet after Sione Finau committed, implying Tolutau was going to follow Sitake wherever he was.

          And also there’s this: Trevor Phibbs @trevorphibbs

          Christian Folau is very close with Wisconsin RB Ula Tolutau, who is huge on Andersen and on an LDS mission. Watch for that OSU development.

          So, hopefully we keep Sitake because those guys love him.
