Maybe we should create an AngryBeavs drinking game to make basketball more interesting.

1shot every time "sucks", "fire", "horrible", or "game over" appears in the comments.

2 shots for every decapitating Joe Burton pass/turnover or Craig Robinson frown.

3 shots each time BeavitorNot misuses ad hominem.

Chug chug chug when we start discussing Jack's (unusually large) can opener collection rather than the game.

Who's in?

    Could also add a rule to drink for every time a commentator compares Burton to one or more of the NBA Hall of Famers. Have heard comparisons to Magic, Barkley, Shaq, Kareem (sky hook? really?). Who am i missing?

    How do you get such a great can opener collection in a podunk town like Corvallis???

    …. oh, wait, he lives in Eugene.

    We could start a pool on such things as how much we lose by, how many Burton turnovers….

    Then at least someone would win.

    OT: Looking at some Senior Bowl Blogs…Wheaton doing well. Here’s one from the NY Times:

    Oregon State wide receiver Markus Wheaton continues to prove that he’s one of the two best perimeter weapons in Mobile this week. In one series of drills versus cornerbacks, Wheaton got into an exchange with Washington cornerback Desmond Trufant, baiting the defender to cut in line to face Wheaton on a rep. Wheaton blew by Trufant for a deep reception up the right flat.

        Since we’ve nothing better to discuss…
        “yard ape” is the racist comment in question here? I heard that term a million times while growing up in the 70’s and it was always in reference to kids. In fact it was always in reference to white kids like me since there was only 1-2 black families in my entire school.
        “You yard apes go play outside!!” or “They just got married a few years ago and they already have 3 yard apes running around.”
        I guess in my naive world calling a black man could be construed as racist but that certainly wasn’t my first thought.

          I have an aunt who wrote a couple books with a character named Yard Ape. So I know where you’re coming from. But the term has devolved since her generation (she’s 96 now) in popular culture. And it has dual meanings depending on what region of the country you find yourself (she’s also from Oregon).

          I think the age of innocence expired on this one when Howard Cosell was fired for calling Art Monk a little monkey. Cosell was good friends with the younger Monk, and he explained that’s what he called his grandchildren (and his own children when they were young) when they were raucous.

          What it amounts to, is that if you ARE racist, then you cant tolerate innocent comments. Racism is in your mind. If you actually see the races as distinct from one another, rather than just all as humans, then you react to such comments. If you arent racist, then it doesnt register.

            I’m gonna side more with Rsteve than you guys on his comment; at least I see where he’s coming from. His point is exactly what I had said about my response to ‘yard apes’. Never thought it was racist until you guys pointed it out.
            Do people have to filter and proofread everything they say just to make sure it’s not racist, or could be wrongly construed as racist? Not me. This doesn’t mean I can’t say some stupid things from time to time (shup JB!) but I don’t consider any race superior to any other race so if someone thinks I’ve said something racist then the burden is on them.
            In the case of ‘yard apes’, I guess I could see it being racist if you buy into the whole blacks-monkeys nonsense.
            Regardless, I am wiser now and my IQ has bumped back up that 2 points I lost after the can opener discussion.

            Again, I don’t think there is any doubt Napkin was not calling Shawn Kemp Sr. a raucous child. I think it’s rather clear he meant it the way depicted in the definitions included in the link above.

            If it was unintentional and a proofread would’ve caught it, that’s one thing. I think he knew what he was saying (judging by the context and the fact that his name pokes fun at Mike Parker’s alcoholism and unfortunate late-night meal at Denny’s (not that that is racist, but it denotes a tendency toward the irreverent).

    Good effort tonight. Guys were diving on the floor for loose balls and competing on both ends. Washington made their rally but the Beavers never let them tie it up or take the lead and pulled away. Good to see some mental toughness out there. I feel like they found themselves in the 2nd half against USC, just made a couple mistakes to prevent them from winning. But they’ve really played hard and gave 100% effort ever since. Now they can’t let a let down happen against the Cougars. Another must win, give the same effort and they get conference win #2.

    That’s just a 20-something kid talking. Truth is the team should be better next year barring any injuries, non-qualifiers, suspensions, etc. I do agree with you that CR should go to DC more often as it seems to help the team!

      He’s not wrong. That’s the expectation I have of this team next year, and I’ll be disappointed if they don’t at least come close.

      Take this year’s team. Add experience, strength, development to everyone on the roster. Add Brandt and Gomis. Add Cooke and N’Diaye. Subtract Burton.

      I think talk of anything less than being ranked is wrong. I’m not saying get excited for it. But I am saying that’s where we should be. If reality doesn’t match those expectations, then we have to get serious about making reality match those expectations.

        I kind of have the notion, or at least hope, that CR may develop as a coach. Jared leaving and Brandt getting injured gets CR some slack for this year, from me.

          Even CR knows the temperature. The linked Barometer article has a quote from him which pretty much says he’s aware that his job is measured in wins and losses, nothing more.

    Absolutely Jack. I don’t think losing Burton will hurt, but they should be much better and from the tone of the Barometer article, that’s where the team and coaches expect. I still think getting some new staff will help.

        Are you thinking that’s because we’re without Fry? I think the consensus was that we were likely a favorite to get a national seed and to go on to the CWS. But that was before Fry went down.

          It’s partially that, but I’m more concerned about middle relief. There are some good arms in the pipeline, but unsure how they will pan out. Wish they had more team speed, too. The less speed, the more they’ll have to rely on clutch hits, which they haven’t been very good at lately…

            I think this team is going to hit for a lot of power this season, that will make up for a lot of the speed, don’t think they’ll have to rely on clutch hitting as much as you think, but they’ll need it some like all teams do. I think the ranking is fine. They’ll be top 5 come regionals

            #6 might be a little high right now given the question marks but if they can improve at middle relief and closer they definitely have top 5 potential. Anyone know who is going to replace Lees as 3rd base coach?

          IIRC he left to go home to deal with a family issue and did not return. His name is not on the roster for the 2013 season.

        Hopefully he does not watch CFB Live. Beavs make the show…….Mannion(twice) and Vaz getting laid out by UCLA and ASU respectively. The Vaz hit was brutal. Followed latter in the show with Ducks running wild in the CW.

    FootballScoop Staff FootballScoop Staff ?@footballscoop

    At Oregon, sources tell us Helfrich has targeted Duke receivers coach Matt Lubick and that a deal is close… http://www.footballscoop.com/the-scoop

    Lubick and the Duke receivers had a great season this year. This could be a nice hire for the Ducks. Good coach and good recruiter. Makes me think Oregon will look to pass more than run next year, with Helfrich running things.

    OT: reading a Mark Helfrich interview on ESPN (first one I’ve seen):

    Q: I know a lot has been made about the play-calling. For you, is it more important to establish the play-calling pecking order, so to speak, or is it more about the collaboration and process?

    MH: It’s definitely a process. That’s the neat deal about all of this.

    That’s a pretty egregious usage: has Riley met his Mayberry match???

      I will be watching to see if he starts to slouch slightly when he walks and if he dresses during October home games like he’s coaching the International Falls high school team in December.

          Riley usually dresses on the sidelines like it’s about 15 degrees colder than it is. Sorry if my “jest” was not clear!

            Chip went fairly “minimalistic” against the Willamette Valley fall elements. It will be funny if Helfrich dons the full winter jacket and stocking cap like MR!

          Moab is beautiful in October/November, but I’ve never been there in December. Got caught in a snow storm on the way back home to Salt Lake a couple of times.
