As suggested, here is a fresh thread while we wait for the final home FB game at Reser on Saturday.
Men on PAC12 now, showing a slow start.
WBB Wednesday appears to be radio only; to be followed Sunday morning by the test vs Notre Dame which is set for the PAC12 network.

    Non PAC-12 link posted at the end of the previous thread for any of you degenerates looking for one.
    I’m too lazy to re-post it but it’s working fine for me and someone else here.

    I missed the Friday night game and so far, I am not impressed with these guys. Wyoming may be a decent mid major but I don’t think they’re a tournament team.

    I know it’s early but I’m not seeing it

    Ugh, I hate these types of games. Every piece of trash the other team throws up seems to go in, but our guys are missing wide open looks. Cowboys have turned the ball over 8 times, to our 1, and we are somehow still down 4 points.

    It’s early yet, but they’re playing cleaner ball than they were Friday night. They aren’t turning the ball over, they’re just missing long on their shots. Tinkle missed several 3’s long and the wide open jumper by I believe Thompson? Hit brick. They lack touch on their shots. The only ones who seem to have touch are Eubanks and Rakocevic inside. Other than that they can’t hit the 8’+ jumpers.

      good teams find other ways when the shots aren’t falling. Like playing defense. No excuse for some of those wide open three’s or the back door/give and go’s Wyoming got in the first half.

    Another game with a whistle on seemingly every possession. If It’s not a travel, It’s a tricky tack foul. The Pac12 really needs to think about how much they’re making their product unwatchable with all of the bullshit whistles.

        I don’t think that’s a correct statement… the sheep to person ratio part… unless you’re including wild populations of bighorn and have a solid number on them beyond the 5k or so estimated. The person to sheep ratio should be somewhere around 2:1.

        Person to cows is about 1:2. And i think they’re the highest ratio of person to oil/gas wells at about 1:18.

    Beavs had a 6 or lead midway through the 2nd half but since then Wyoming has pretty much shut us down. Offense has no flow, Eubanks is getting owned by his man on both ends and we can’t hit a shot. Wyoming up 6 with 4 min left

      I just don’t understand the lack of D sure you had GP3 the first few years but it is like Tinkle is not teaching them how to play D anymore. This up tempo on the offence is not helping them either.

    So is this the legacy that Eubanks, Thompson Jr and Tinkle envisioned when they signed on? Defense was absolute shit last year and I am not seeing anything different so far this year. Figure it the fuck out and try actually playing it.

    And McLaughlin is a bust. That dude was a 4 star? Seriously? Lack of any decent PG play and matador defense is killing them. Did I die and wake up in the CR era??? Talent only gets you so far. ESPECIALLY at Oregon St.

    Speaking of Eubanks, stop eating eggs and try hitting the weight room. Dude looks just as pencil dick thin as he did two years ago. Who exactly is the strength and conditioning coach?!?!?

      Stevie is a streaky player. Either he hot or cold. Tonight cold. I could tell his shots were not going in. I lost track of all the wide open threes Wyoming took. Are three were all contested. I’ve lost faith in Coach Tinkle too.

        yeah fair he is streaky, but that just means too inconsistent in his case… and to be fair to Drew he had a good game shooting wise… Although not many boards and probably lost his man for open 3s too many times

        Stevie 1-7 from 3… Manuel and Hollins had some flashes.

          Eubanks guy owned him in 2nd half like you said. Just sad to watch this team not take a step forward this year. No flow on offense and defense looked lost at times. That’s on Coach Tinkle. My personal pet peeve is watching them miss all these free throws.

          STjr 2-13 from the field. It seems for every game he’s hot there’s three where he doesn’t shoot worth a shite. The Thompsons & McLauglin shot a combined 3-21 from the field, so there’s the game there, along with not much on the defensive end. *sigh*. I know its early, but holy crap this is a home game against Wyoming. Long season ahead?

            They won’t win their league. The coach who I really wanted will win their league. I can maybe see that front court compete with Fresno and CSU for fourth or maybe push for third and a tourney bid. It’s too early to tell.

        He can’t shoot off the bounce to save his life. But he was a steady, hard-nosed defender. And he was a great second half heat check.

        If our back court played D with 75% the intensity he did, they could be something to talk about.

      Eubanks has noticeably gained size… Stevie has a poor frame and isn’t that explosive of an athlete. You can judge this by waist to shoulder ratio… Hollins is much more explosive for example

      Its just crazy that they cant get these guys squatting, deadlifting, and pressing… Stevie needs to gain 20 pounds easy. He’s in the best possible situation to gain size and strength and nothing gets done. Who is the S&C Coach?!?!?

    Not impressed with the post game interview. Seemed to me like some unjustified whining and excuses.

    Maybe I’m out of touch with how things are done but I’m a bit taken back when Tinkle says “we asked the kids to……” instead of we told the kids to. Or you will or your ass is going to be on the bench a lot.

    Never really thought of WT as being a perrinneal tourney Pac12 coach. Love the guy, but I’m not sure about the long term trajectory. Bobby D def hung his hat on this “right fit” and “OSU Guy” on WT.
    I also was surprised that we actually made the tourney that year. Seemed like more of a favor or nod to Gary Payton Sr & the “havent made the tourney in 25 years father son” storyline than it was the OSU b-ball team.
    OSU passed on Ben Howland and chose WT. BH was a total dick, but, he was a runner up, and a final four guy a couple times.

      Howland’s demeanor aside, he would have come with an immediate one, maybe two year post season ban. Then, after coming off that, we would get to be dealing with the FBI and them asking about MBA Hoops and Ohmar Carter.

      Just stfu about Howland already. I’m fine if you want to come up with a valid alternative, but Howland made his own bed, and he would have put us in the same shitter MSU is in… and everybody knew it and passed on him because of it… and that was without the FBI being involved.

    It’s one game and I think Wyoming is pretty good. I watched their CBI championship game last year and remember thinking why can’t Tinkle get a JC transfer like Dalton instead of fucking Ronnie Stacy? Still some of the same shit from the Beavs, but with better players than last year. No defense of the three , no reliable spot up three point shooter and crappy foul shooting.

    It was almost like the beavs forgot or weeent coached to defend the three point perimeter, but fell back into ‘finding your spot’ on defense; as if they were defending a traditional post up team. They tried man mostly in the first half, but weren’t very successful, so they went 2-3 zone. They should have gone 1-2-2 box zone or even 3-2 zone to cover the perimeter more. They need to figure out what defense works sooner in the game rather than stick with the mantra ‘this is the defense we play’. And those that asked ‘what offense were we running? It appeared the ‘fast breaks’ were always defended by Wyoming; as well as rebounding. Beavs assumed every shot was going in and never followed their shots nor were in position for the rebound.

    Wow, we got killed by Wyoming? I tuned in briefly and saw we were up mid 2nd half and looking like we were dominating. Then saw the final. I guess we shit the bed and gave up because we were winning? Sounds a lot like our football team when they get the lead. Guess this is what bad teams do.

    It was apparent in the first game against a smaller front court. Tinks does not run the team in practice. Their legs get tired in the second half, and already weak legs only get weaker. No feet on D and a bunch of reaching in the second half is a direct result of conditioning.

    You can tell this team does not run. You can tell they don’t do board tips or Mikan drills in even HIIT intervals. You can tell they don’t run the open court in any organized drills until their legs fall off.

    And you could see in the first five minutes that only Tres was boarding last night. Give Wyoming credit for putting bodies on bodies well away from the hoop.

        Everything is tied to conditioning. Weak legs miss shots too.

        Conditioning is the great equalizer in hoops. The disparity in the second half of our first game allowed SU to keep pace with us while running a press and losing players to foul trouble.

        It’s not an equalizer if your better talent can keep up with or outpace said conditioning. And the only way to do that is to put in the work to be that good.

          The bottom line is that we’ve lost three out of four halves of hoops, and it’s because we’re not playing the whole court as a team. That bonding can only be had when the coach drills it into the team. Spacing and movement are conditioned, not taught.

            What’s your theory on why they aren’t conditioned? I think it’s somehow tied into how much WT personally sweats, but I can’t confirm.

    With several official visitors being asked to move their visits back to the first week I am guessing the new coach is known and he wants to be able to meet with them.

    This would eliminate any coach playing in a conference championship (Frost) and to me makes the case that its a coordinator getting the job (Baldwin most likely).

    Thoughts?

        Go fuck yourself. Baldwin isn’t even my top choice so again go fuck yourself.

        And NOWHERE did I say that they wouldn’t want a guy whose team is in the conference title game but if the new coach is gonna be here for those visits than guess what? they aren’t hiring anyone PLAYING IN A CONFERENCE TITLE GAME.

          I never said that either. You wrote

          This would eliminate any coach playing in a conference championship (Frost) and to me makes the case that its a coordinator getting the job (Baldwin most likely)

          I wrote

          Or a coach that currently isn’t employed?

          Which is another possibility on the parameter you suggested. Your pea brain took it elsewhere.

          Spare us the Baldwin isn’t your first choice diatribe. Anyone that peruses this board has seen your hard on for Baldwin posts for years.

            So you didn’t write
            “take Baez’s cock out of your mouth”?

            That was why I said fuck you because that is a total asshole comment.

            You are right, it could be a coach without a job. I don’t buy those rumors though so TO ME it signals a coordinator getting the job. Either way, telling someone to take someone’s cock out to their mouth deserves the response I gave so again go fuck yourself.

      I talked to someone this morning who said they were just being told to move their dates out because they both have playoff games this weekend. I haven’t checked to see if both players are truly in playoff games, but it sounds like the reschedule is just for that reason and not an imminent coaching hire.

    Garretson might run more in last two games. QB running reduced due to lack of depth, but with only two games left QB option getting tempting to Hall.

      Blount sounds like a loser. Very “me first” with the red-shirt, and then claiming he likes being on the practice squad because “it’s stress free”

      Hope the new coach tells him he’ll never play at OSU.

        I liked Tedford, but mostly because Riley had his number. We can’t bring on anyone that we consistently beat.

        If we’re going for former Cal Coaches, I’d rather give Clancy Pendergast his first shot at Head Coach.

    I’m cool with Banker coming back as a dedicated Linebacker coach who recruits Hawaii and the rest of Polynesia. Anything more then that then a hard no.

    Say what you will about him, but we had a shit ton of solid LB’s during his watch and recruited some really good poly’s.

    If I’m being honest, I did always like listening to Bankers interviews. One of the only truely honest coaches I’ve ever heard. And I really respected the fact that he called out USC and Sark for being dirty. You rarely ever hear coaches do that.

        I know you guys all hated Banker at the end. His defense became antiquated against the spread and the hand Jive was a joke. But I never felt he ever coasted or quit on his team. Riley did that shit.

        And up until Riley bailed us out with that Nebraska deal, Banker was putting linebackers on All PAC 12 teams every other year or so, as well as The NFL. He also coached statistically the top 2 or 3 defenses we’ve ever had.

        I wouldn’t let him sniff at a coordinator spot because the spread is college football, but linebackers and pro style are his wheel house. And he did get out and recruit the islands hard. Valikelimo and Hungalu who are 2 of our only solid upper class men are his I believe as well.

            I agree. But since we have no clue which way this is going and it’s pure speculation killing time, I’m just trying to step back and be objective about him.

            If he were to get the head coach spot (which I find unfathomable) I would consider our football program a joke.

        Yeah… I’m trying to remember the backers that weren’t i Riley’s initial class after his hat in hand routine. I liked Bubba. We lucked into DJ because of grades. I was not a fan of Kristick. We had soe completely botched evaluations in Gabe and Boom when they started their careers on the O.

        And the coaching up of lesser talents at backer got worse after Newhouse was canned (instead of the dedicated ST coach).

    I seriously doubt Banker will ever coach again in a Power 5 capacity as even a DC in what’s left of his career. He couldn’t land the Hawaii HC job when he had the best window of opportunity. He’s had a year to accept reality and he’s off to some small college. Good luck and good riddance. Don’t let a second string running QB hit you in the ass on your way out of Corvallis.

    Banker’s daughter (and grandkid) live in Corvallis so I think we can put that rumor to rest.

    A name I haven’t heard yet but am intrigued by: Greg Schiano

    + Defensive minded
    + Turned around Rutgers
    + DC at Ohio State
    + Rumored finalist at UO before Taggart was hired
    + Relatively young (51)

    No west coast ties, though, so maybe he would be open to retaining Hall as DC to keep some familiarilty on staff?

          I don’t think that matters anymore. High school coaches are high school coaches no matter where they are. It would take maybe ten seconds for someone with a recruiting mindset to break hat ice and form a relationship. It would take an actual couple of years for a real trust to be earned. So there’s that. But He has reportedly made the rounds on a national level visiting HS, Juco, and D1 programs on all coasts to figure out what made him a failure in the NFL but not at Rutgers.

          That that’s not a sincere persona is a worry to me. There’s stuff like this out there.

            Good – that means he would have had success here to be considered a candidate elsewhere.

            Our OSU is unlikely to ever be a “destination job” so I’m okay with having someone leaving the program, assuming it’s in better shape than when the took over.

            Yeah… I can see that upside.

            But if we were to go with him, and we was truly a changed man, I would want him to sell the program to the boosters like he did at Rutgers. An that would mean I want him invested in a long run. Every school is a destination for someone. Those coaches are few and far between. So attrition in college coaching is a norm for those schools you don’t consider destinations.

            The NFL will call. Other schools will call. Those things are always going to happen. Finding a successful coach who will make OSU a destination requires looking at coaches who have experience enough to know the difference between a destination and “the big time.”

            If you want a “destination” coach, Bill Snyder should be your model. Better yet, the guy whose coaching tree he’s from, Fry would be a good model.

    Looking at Norvell’s history and came across what might be a big reason for his success at Memphis, his OC. Dude has been there for a while and held the team together through the coaching change to Norvell. If they’re talking to Norvell they may want to make sure he’s part of the package.

        It’s all about the money.

        Quality of life is something a head coach has when he retires… and probably leaves to his widow because he dies of something soon after hanging up the whistle.

        I’m not sure that kind of wisdom can rise within the hyper-competitive world of college coaching. I wanted to believe it with GA and his coachspeak. But I’ll be a cynic when I hear the new coach say those things. About the only people I would believe are Cory Hall and Dennis Erickson.

    OT – Won’t link here, but Canzano surprised and disappointed in ticket sales and apparently lack of interest in “PK80” tournament, which he says Uncle Phil deserves given Knight’s generosity and status as “most influential sport icon of this time.” He expresses disappointment in inadequate marketing from ESPN, so he shamelessly plugs the tournament himself.

    Given the shoe company/NCAA basketball scandal (where is that now?), I’m glad that PK80 is receiving as little attention as it is. Its probably due more to the holiday weekend/black Friday more than anything else. But I hope Phil looks around and sees plenty of empty seats….

    Some of the coaching changes and their associated rumors:

    Miles gives a good answer about Nebby.
    https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-les-miles-mike-riley-cornhuskers-job

    Reports have aTm gauging Jimbo Fischer’s interest in their job. Sumlin will be available soon.

    Arky fired their AD… presumably because they don’t want hi to hire the next HC.

    Rumors that Nebby is asking permission to talk to Frost sound wrong when compared to the Miles link. I don’t think they undercut Riley like that. Then again, Moos may be that kind of guy. But I wouldn’t think they’re like aTm in that regard.

    Chip Kelly in talks with Florida? Maybe interested in Tennessee? Gruden hasn’t been called by anyone, including Tennessee, but made it a point not to rule anything out.

    Then there was the Rob Ryan interview a couple weeks ago where he said he and his brother might be willing to work together somewhere. I just think that one’s too fun not to mention.

    And then there’s the Mora rumor that he just wants out.

    This is starting to get fun.

      What do you think of Sumlin? I think he still has potential, but not sure if he’s wedded to a particular offense or not. I’d like to see OSU be run heavy, have TE packages, etc. and maybe Sumlin’s more of a throw-it-a-lot guy. Maybe Sumlin paired with Hall as the energetic D coordinator could be an effective combination for OSU.

      I expect Sumlin would provide recruiting benefits in Texas and neighboring states. If Lockette is retained with is FLA connections, seems like OSU could have a good base in CA/Texas/FLA….

        He’s a pass-happy O type of guy. The QBs he’s helped along the way are guys like Drew Brees, Sam Bradford, Case Keenum and the un-helpable Johnny Football. He was a Joe Tiller acolyte.

        But he has connections to OSU. Noel Mazzone is his current OC. Jason Phillips was a former OC.

        I would probably hate his O. And the lousy D that always accompanies that type of O would drive me nuts. But we would outscore a lot of teams. And if you want that type of O, you might as well get someone who has proven time and again he can implement it at the highest level.

    Any chance that Barnes has been talking to Bob Stoops to bring him out of retirement?

    I expect the announcement for the new coach to break sometime during the Saturday of the Civil War. Barnes has to have his guy already signed and ready to go for recruiting, early signing, making an early splash and staying ahead of the madness of multuple firings/coaching musical chairs as the season ends.

    I hope for Les Miles, Bob Stoops caliber on the rebound and ready to win at OSU. I expect a cheap option with OSU/NW ties and no frills, no risk/no reward hire like J Smith or Beau Baldwin.

    A surprise hire that isn’t high profile might be better than above like Justin Wilcox, Greg Schianno, Craig Bohl.

    Kevin Sumlin as OC for few years would be fun.

    Joe Rudolph. Great OL coach. Smash mouth football. Run the fricking ball. Six degrees of separation with Riley for that crowd. Played for Alvarez and has played in and coached in a system that has stood the test of time, much to my dismay. If we go the coordinator route, why not him? Could also bring back a Beav great as Asst. HC or DC in I Breckerfield.
    The guy is smart, has an MBA from Carnegie Mellon, and has also coached at tOSU under Tressel and at Nebraska. He has been a S&C coach and a high level TE coach with several high draft picks that are in the league.

    Did anybody else listen to the dam podcast? Bernard in the first half hour was worth tuning in for, but the rest is forgettable.
    Bernard mentions a Facebook group he out together of former players. Does anybody know if the average Joe can get access to facebook groups just to be a fly on the wall? And does anybody know the link?

    Also, he mentions Keith Heyward still very much would like to work for the Beavs someday in some capacity. Might be a support staff member to keep an eye on. Yvenson was great to listen to, in my opinion.

      To me it’s between SJ, Simonton, Quizz, and Nall.

      Bernard was a good back.

      IMO Nall is the best, but his career hasn’t played out well. Highest yards per carry by far, breakaway speed, can catch, etc. If he comes back for a senior year he’ll be the best ever. Nall’s YPC is insane. Even destroys SJ and Simonton. If Nall doesn’t come back then he drops on the list to 4th. Bernard is 5th imo.

        I always felt like Quizz was solid, but never lived up to the lofty expectations. Part of that was definitely O-line play.

        I remember watching SJ and being amazed by how physically dominant he was. Loved watching him stiff arm defenders. I’d put Nall in the same category.

        YPC
        Nall- 5.9
        SJ- 4.9
        Quizz- 4.9
        Simonton- 4.8
        Bernard- 4.4

          Quizz just didn’t have breakaway speed. He just gave you a consistent 5 yards every time he ran. I’d be willing to bet that Quizz had the lowest percentage of 0 yard or negative yard running plays of all the RBs.

        Bernard is easily better than Nall. He was a workhorse back. Don’t think he missed a game. Nall is constantly hurt to be considered as a great rb. He’ll go down as a could’ve been great.

        Nall will be back. Won’t transfer. He’s in the undrafted category right now. Needs to show he can stay healthy for a whole year.

        My order goes, simonton, Jackson, quizz, Bernard.

          Well on the podcast Bernard states he told Nall to go to the NFL. During every game, the telecasters mention NFL teams want Nall as a FB.

          I personally discount longevity. Sandy Koufax had 6 great years, but he’s probably the best pitcher in MLB history. Compare that to an “accumulator” type pitcher who wins 14 games per year for 24 years, like Phil Neiko. Who is truly better? I’m not a fan at all of accumulators. Prefer greatness over just being there, average, and accumulating numbers via volume.

            Bernard was not an accumulator in this case. 3 seasons over 1000 isn’t just because he’s getting 30 carries a game.

            Every rb should leave early if they can. Rbs have only so much mileage in them so it makes sense to leave early.

            FB would be harder since few teams carry one. Fewer fullbacks in the NFL than kickers.

            Bernard is not the expert on rather he will be drafted. If he is gonna go undrafted (likely) I think he’d be foolish to go. Get a free year of grad school before you try to make it as an undrafted player. Odds are he will be on a practice squad at best and assuming he sticks on one for all 17 weeks (unlikely as most PS players bounce on and off rosters) he’d make 122K. Not bad money but you can only do that for 2 years.

            Unless he is gonna be guaranteed to make a team (go in rounds 1-3) he’d be smart to stay and get a year of grad school done. His long term earning potential is higher with a year of grad school than it would be as an undrafted free agent.

        Its a similar argument to the one I made for Smith.

        If that were the route I’d want Hayward and his recruiting ability along with him and if it takes the DC job to let him have it I would. Also if Smith were smart he’d offer Mike Johnson the OC job and try to get his kid on campus.

        Not buying the Hall to Portland State thing they mention late, OSU can offer him more than PSU as an assistant and being a HC in FCS doesn’t really get him closer to an FBS job. I think AHC/Co-DC/DBs with a nice bump in pay would keep him at OSU.

            The Hall discussion was after Bernard.

            Bernard’s argument about coaches from OSU is that recruits are likely to view OSU as a great place if all these guys that played there want to be there as coaches too and they’d know how to sell Corvallis to kids. I buy it personally.

    I don’t get all of this talk about Kevin Sumlin? I guess it’s for shits and giggles. Otherwise, it’s completely delusional to think he’s going to get shit canned by A&M and coming running to Corvallis, especially the talk about him accepting an OC job.

    Isn’t it reasonable to think, It’s either going to be a “past his peak” candidate with decent past success/name recognition or a up and coming coordinator? There are a shit ton of good HC jobs out there or will be soon. The Beavs wait in line as usual.

      That’s why it will be Baldwin or J Smith. Those guys aren’t really in high demand. The podcast made a good point about J Smith…good X/O guy with zero personality, but with the right staff and all the training under good coaches, OSU ties/love, etc, could be a good hire. I’d rather either of those two over some of the awful names I’ve heard.

      I have a feeling it will be Smith the more I think about it.

      He has the edge over Baldwin because he’s trained under Peterson and has OSU ties. I really do think understanding the PNW helps, and especially understanding OSU. Smith would have a desire to build up the alma mater. What motivation does Les Miles have to do that? None. Zero ties or pride. Baldwin understands the PNW as well and would be a good fit.

      Short of that, I think we go a safer route and hire a retread like Tedford who understands the situation pretty well. That wouldn’t be awful but there’s a cap on Tedford. He’s stabilize things but you’re not winning big with him. Some of these names like the Sanford Jr guy, Ok State guy, etc are interesting, but I don’t think they’d “get it”…GA fit in that camp. He’s much like those guys and never quite fit in or got it, never really seemed to love his situation even though he’d say he did. He was a Utah guy. Hearing the search firm is focusing on west coast guys, and that’s a good thing. At least they’re getting that right.

      On that latest podcast they mention June Jones. Portland ties, etc. No thanks. Tedford is the only retread who is realistic and would be a fit. Miles is not realistic and a bad fit.

        As I’ve said before, I think for several reasons Smith has been on a good development path. I guess my question is more about his demeanor and personality. He’s usually described as an introvert, which can be offset. But if he is an introvert, all of the HC demands might be too much for him and he might be most effective as a coordinator.

        Also like Jack’s point about waiting to see how Smith does at UW with the QB transition and subsequent offensive performance to better gauge his abilities.

          Can’t be true. His current salary is $3.4M. No way we’d pay that unless he really wants out of UVA and is willing to take a pay cut.

          After looking at him closer, he does have a solid 65% career winning percentage, and he’s defied the odds in the ACC this year. UVA was the consensus last place team in the conference and they’re headed for a bowl game.

          I always remember his defenses for being hitters. And smash mouth football, which in my mind would be good. Get Cory and kh on board for the defense. Biggest question mark on him being head coach is who is the o coordinator. That to me is the key if he gets the job

    The way I see it, there are three main components to the HC position: recruiting, organization building, and vision setting.

    The only one of those I can think of that’s related to geography is recruiting, because you have to love what you’re selling and have connections within the region.

    On the other hand, good salesmen can sell anything if they fully grasp its benefits. I don’t think being a west coast guy is critical. It’s maybe 10% of what is needed, but it’s one of the few things we as fans have visibility of, so it gets overstated.

    Don James had no west coast ties before coming to UW. Chip had no west coast ties before coming to UO. Leach’s west coast ties were about as strong as GA’s.

    I think that perception is part of the folk wisdom of college football because that’s how coaches are usually hired. There’s nothing to say an out of towner couldn’t be successful just because they aren’t from the area.

    Not that I really care, as it was a kind gesture, but I would think that she just outed the school and player for providing/receiving improper benefits from boosters.

        What I remember her saying was something about several boosters asking her if they can add the kid to their cell phone family plan so he could call home. Then she contacted Gundy who somehow took care of getting the player hooked up with a cell phone. Small potatoes, but on par with getting free tattoos or a ride in a coach’s car

    Funny in 2014 Bronco was my #1 pick for the job:
    http://angrybeavs.com/football/10743

    Weird reading that now. I’m not as high on him this cycle, but he’d be an okay/safe hire. Main reason I don’t like him is I don’t think he’s worth the buyout…but also think he has a cap on his wins (don’t see a Rose Bowl under him).

    I do like his Ds, and he’s always had good QBs. I’d rank him a B+ hire. Safe. He’ll get us respectable. Probably one notch above Riley. But I’m not sure that’s enough to make a Rose Bowl, and I think that’s what every Beav fan wants.

      Let’s hire Matt Wells.

      Frost looks like the one guy who came out of that whole gaggle of names that looks good right now. Derek Trucks is a pretty good guitar player. Mendenhall would be an immensely poor fit at OSU. Kiffin still sucks… by the looks of his puffy face, probably beer through a straw. Brasfield has moved into an associate AD position at Nebby. That looks like his future. We could be talking about him as a potential AD one day. Stitt having problems with his teams under-performing might have to do with coaching.

      This looks like a thread that followed up a Brady Hoke thread.

      If you title another post “Bronco Mendenhall,” will we have a new head coach within six hours?

    This just in.

    Brady Hoke is now rumored to be the leader in the clubhouse for the OSU job.

      Could become the first coach to ever fall asleep during his own introductory press conference

      This is quite possibly the stupidest post of the decade. Just say no to Hoke.

        He provides specific relief and contrast for many people to feel better about their abs. So there’s that.

        There could be heart attack betting games during game time to raise funds for the other half of Reser. “Bet on the game clock time Hoke will have a heart attack, guess right, and win a lifetime supply of low cholesterol Reser potato salad! All proceeds go to Raise Reser II!”

        Also competes well with Clune in Fred-Flintstone-look-alike contest…..

    So why would Mendenhall leave a program he’s starting to turn around for the dumpster fire that is Oregon St?

      Might just be Mendenhall’s agent trying to get his client a raise and/or extension. The threat of you leaving is often the quickest way to get an employer to take care of you.

        “a raise and/or extension”….snicker snicker….not a bucking Bronco anymore?

        Juvenile humor over.

    Is anyone besides me having trouble with the new incarnation of Firefox? A lot of the add-ons, such as “Go To Parent Folder”, no longer work with the latest version. This is a major problem for me as I use it many, many times on a daily basis.

    Additionally, it’s looking like the latest changes have had a negative impact on being able to watch the streams out of Poland, or Russia or where the heck ever they’re at. This could be the deal killer for me.

    Someone posted a comment on a Mozilla board about switching from Firefox over to Pale Moon. Comments re Pale Moon or some other browser?

      I’ve been using Opera for over a year now and it’s been great. No problems with streams. Functional and lightweight compared to other browsers I’ve used that are CPU hogs.

        Thanks. I’ll add it to my list. I’m out there thrashing about and trying to come up with a list of options. As I find one that looks promising I’m doing some cursory checks to see if I can determine if it gets added to the “look at in more depth” list.

        Right now I’m looking at Epic Privacy Browser which is based on Chrome but without the tracking that Google does. Don’t know how much of a cpu/ram hog it is, I guess that kind of question would/should be addressed if it makes it to the “dig deeper” list.

        It’s getting late so I’ll be looking at Opera tomorrow.

    Jinx?

    Eggers on ASU @ OSU: “Arizona State’s history in November in Corvallis is not good. The Sun Devils have lost in their last four trips there during the cold-weather month. The last time they tasted victory there was in 1996, when Jerry Pettibone was running the wishbone at OSU.” This should elicit a PBH response.

    He picks ASU, 37-27…..

    But he also tabs Manese Hungalu as OSU’s “best player,” not even being specific to D, and implies his potential absence is a major loss/game changer.

    I think there are other LBs that can fill in there, especially if the D line could play well for a full game. “Best player” seems like quite the over reach.

      It’s only an overreach because Brandel is our best player. I would rate Ugwoegbu as better than Hungalu if not for consistency issues. Hungalu gets the second best because of that. After Bright, I would say Willis, Lavaka, Nall and Morris.

      I would put Togiai at the top if he could catch anything that hits his hands.

        Now if you want to talk about players who will have better careers at OSU than Hungalu did, there’s a shit ton of talent in the Soph, Frosh and redshirt categories who are raw and inconsistent right now. But there will be some serious players coming up. There’s just not much to pick from the juniors and especially the seniors.

        I still can’t believe some people wanted him back in 2014.

        Was Hire Matt Wells the same as the Beau Baldwin guy?

          Hire Matt Wells, Les is Moore, J. Smith is my Homie, Aranda’s Our Guy, Harsin’s my Hero, Beau knows Beaver, the dude uses a different handle every time.

          I’m thinking he really just hopes whoever comes in demands more Tartan
