Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes cast)

Newest commit Hunter Mattox

Film here.

Summary:

(a) Has no major conference offers

(b) Father played for the San Diego Chargers

Hmm. ;)

What I see: guy who gets pushed backward a lot and is slow.

Conversely, Beavs pick up a nice looking safety prospect. He runs like Steven Jackson.

    The only take aways from this video are these:

    1) He wraps up and can body slams
    2) He does have an eye for where the ball is going…..only after over pursuing the end…
    3) Runs very upright and doesn’t fight off the block very well.

    I don’t see what the coaches see in this video other than “project”

      Idk… I see DT as a future. He’s good off the snap and in the fnish. But I don’t see 4.7 speed unless we’re looking at the time between 10 and 50 yards. I also don’t see him being pushed around unless he’s double-teamed.

      He’s not great on the edge. But he may be a great interior lineman when all is said and done.

        Hmmmm, sounds like a recent DE/DT prospect: father in pro’s, unimpressive film, no on-field results…what was his name? Dad was a Ram I think….

          Dad as a Ram makes him a Pankey… I think.

          This kid isn’t as slow as Pankey. And he’s not averse to throwing his nose into a play… until it’s finished.

            If his strength numbers are true, then we have nothing to worry about. They can’t be faked.

            How he translates that strength to the field is another matter. But just having it is a plus.

      Boner… you may have gone to school at Nikegon, but you and I both did not get a damn degree from that shit hole. One of us spent good money doing nothing.

      And your Duck cohorts are morons with really bad jokes. I’ve been reading the same joke for years. You all can’t come up with anything original? Hell… google “joke” and copy and paste the results. Maybe we can get some relief from your Duckpidity.

        Duckpidity is not trademarked, nor will it be. It can be marketed freely under common usage due to my just now making it up. I know just about everyone who has ever talked to a Nikegon fan has sought a word to sum up their feelings of… not hatred… not complete annoyance… not blind ignorance forced upon us… just… Duckpidity.

        It is insidious… and so typical… and even suspected as being paid in some instances (but those guys are actually pretty good). Hell, just read the non-redacted and uncensored archives of this blog.

              Apparently you googled “I’m a mid-60’s tool who is trying to get attention by incessantly trolling on my rival’s blog then projecting my issues upon them… on their site… where I troll for attention… incessantly.”

    On Moreland: “At this point, he hopes to make the Kings’ regular-season roster. He excelled at the Sacramento workout, keeping pace with lottery picks Marcus Smart and Elfrid Payton. The Kings, who didn’t own a second-round selection, later told him that they appreciate his length and versatility. He has first-round skills, they explained. It’s just about maximizing potential.” Wasn’t that his problem at OSU?

    Off topic but Wright Thompson’s World Cup blog on ESPN is first class. You do not have to even like soccer. Great insights about different cultures as they watch in local sports bars, games featuring each country’s national teams. Pretty good Pizza/Beer face off between Buenos Aires vs Miami and Santiago vs Montivideo..though he does not realize that when he drank Quilmes beer in Buenos Aires, it is made by Cervecerias Chilenas, a very inside joke. Insight about how and when to drink beer in Manaus is very good too. Considering that he was in each country for only a couple of days, he really scored big with information that is not readily available.

    I know its early, but tecruiting seems like it is off to a slow start; and that’s not a knock on Hilbers in particular. But the optimism over Garret’s “attention to detail,” and in fact said attention to detail, might be wasted if OSU is not offering and signing Pac-12-caliber talent…

    Wow, OSU allowed more than 400 points for the third time in school history last year (UW probably picked up about 15% of that tab). OSU has 7 returning starters on both sides of the ball, a finally healthy linebacking corp, and Jalen Grimble to look forward to:

    Jesus-tap-dancing-christ: Oklahoma approves $370M of stadium upgrades:

    http://www.si.com/college-football/photos/2014/06/25/oklahoma-sooners-gaylor-family-memorial-stadium-renderings#start

    College football continues to lose its mind with “elite” schools upgrading to NFL+ quality facilities and associated costs, with which a majority of schools will not be able to keep pace.

    I question the wisdom of these “investments” given the concussion issue and other factors (amateur status of NCAA players, potential pay-for-play, etc.), but then I’ve had a couple of concussions myself and may be completely wrong.

    Blitz has a story linking 5* PG Tyler Dorsey to OSU. I think Angry mentioned this a few weeks back also. Nice to see Oregon State even mentioned in this type of story. Really hoping the coaching staff could start something big with the TInkle and Thompson kids being the anchors to bring in other big name recruits.

    OT – In reviewing the NFC South and the Saints, two former OSU players are highlighted – Victor Butler and Brandin Cooks. Would be great to see a healthy Butler have a breakout season….

    Burke: Victor Butler, LB

    The Saints appeared to have stolen Butler out of free agency prior to the 2013 season, landing a potential starter for the affordable price of $3 million over two years. Butler has yet to make his Saints debut, however, after suffering an ACL tear last June. A full year removed from that injury, Butler should add another athletic, pass-rushing piece to Rob Ryan’s aggressive 3-4 scheme — a scheme, by the way, that resurrected the Saints defense from a bottom-of-the-barrel outfit to a top-five attack in 2014.

    “It’s great to get him back out there,” Ryan said last month. “He looks healthy; I can’t wait.”

    Prior to signing with the Saints, Butler racked up 11 sacks in four seasons as a Cowboy, despite starting just two games total. He may have that many starts under his belt by Week 2 this year, if he can win an OLB job opposite rising star Junior Galette. Cam Jordan and Galette combined for 22.5 sacks last season; no one else on the roster finished with more than 4.5.

    Butler could be the third piece to the pass-rushing puzzle. The Saints have waited long enough to find out.

    Farrar: Brandin Cooks, WR

    Cooks flew under the radar at Oregon State, but he led the nation with 1,730 receiving yards in 2013, and he’s an explosive play waiting to happen — especially in an offense as complex and as prolific as the one run by Sean Payton and Drew Brees. And Brees, for his part, sees the first-round rookie as an optimal replacement for running back Darren Sproles, who went to Philly in a March trade. It’s always been Payton’s preference to use his backs in many ways, but Cooks could provide that same versatility from a different position.

    “I’ve seen all the highlights, and that gets you excited,” Brees told USA Today. “I think he can do a lot of things. I think he can play outside receiver. I think he can play inside in the slot. You can hand him reverses. You can throw him screens. He can return punts.”

    Cooks has the talent to do it. But can he pick up the advanced verbiage and be mistake-free in time for the start of his rookie season? Playing in Mike Riley’s pro-style offense at OSU will have helped. Cooks could be a sleeper Offensive Rookie of the Year candidate.”

    Considering that Stephen Thompson was able to do it at Cal State LA, what are the chances he can convince one or all of Schaftenaar, Reid, or Robbins to transfer? All are wasted scholarships. I even remember Robbins had that quip about being able to shoot when Starks was transferring and he shot 27% this year and 65% from the line. I’d love to be able to bring in more Tinks guys that they recruit. https://oregonstate.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1655323 this kid is older and hit a late growth spurt. Skinny, but could be a very solid wing in this conference.

      Be fair. We would be trading kids who have experience for one who has none in this scenario. If development (or at least selective development) was an issue with CR, then Tinkle should be able to take like talents and mold them.

      You can’t have it both ways.

      None of those kids are wasted ships. One can argue they’re wasted talents. That’s why we have a new coach. If their talents are wasted because of what they themselves do, then we can talk about bouncing them. But that would involve grades and/or attitudes.

      If a new recruit comes in, he’s in to add to the team… not to detract.

        I also think Gomis will probably be the most likely to leave “early.” He was older when he came to school, and he spent a couple years injured and on the bench before we ever got to see him. Add to that his stated priority of getting a degree, and he will likely graduate and go on to something else in his life after next season.

        Robbins might leave in the end. His attitude can’t be conducive to the academic side. And Tinkle has given an ultimatum on academics.If that’s the way a kid gets pushed out, so be it.

        You know what, you’re right. I definitely think there’s a couple in there who just are not good basketball players period (a shooter like Schaf shooting 30%) and a couple others who may have work ethic/commitment issues but I forget that these are very young men and it would be devastating if they couldn’t get their scholarship they earned.

        I do think someone like Robbins would be much better served elsewhere and get more playing time as well. I just wish that transfer rules let kids leave if they wanted to without having to sit out a year when the coach leaves/gets fired.

          I completely agree about transfer rules. It can’t be so open that kids migrate to the major powers… which would be hard since our hypothetical assumes the best players are already there. But if schools are only guaranteeing one year in any given ship, why are we penalizing any kid for thinking the same way?

      This one pisses me off more than anything. I think John Yoo is one of the most intelligent idiots out there. But I can’t get by his #1 principle that corporations are people.

      I’m not sorry in the least to inform you all that the Boston Tea Party (the actual Boston Tea Party) occurred because a corporation was favored over all other traders in tax levies. The merchants of Boston wanted to bring in cargo at the same price the East India Co. brought theirs. But British law demanded a tax subsidy to the major corporation instead of the mom and pops.

      Boston’s response was to embargo tea altogether. And that apparently held true when the British forced cargo into port.

      Three major lies occur in the re-telling of the tale of the Boston Tea Party.
      1. It was a revolt against taxation.
      The lie here is due to the fact it was a revolt against inequitable taxation… not taxation itself. The obvious target was the East India Co. and their hold on the crown. That hold was lost after the limeys lost the War of 1812. But it was a written law for many years, and it totally and completely sucked for the little man. The cry was not “no taxation.” It was “no taxation without representation.”
      2. They dressed as indians to confuse the Brits.
      In fact, they dressed as natives because they revered and honored their system of government. They so honored it that many parts of our Constitution have tenets that are different than the typical Montesquieu, et al arguments about the formation of our democracy. The Five Nations were very very very respected by our founding fathers.
      3. It was a destructive occurrence.
      The protest (such a hippie thing… no?) was in no way destructive to anything but the cargo they previously tried to embargo. They slipped it overboard then took the time to swab the decks of the ships involved… then they faked the lines and made sure they were ship-shape. They did this because they knew the ships were commissioned by the EIC to carry their cargo… in a way that a bully forces one to give up their lunch money. The ships were local merchants acting against their own interests. They were actually aligned with the protesters. That’s why their property was treated with respect.

      Don’t get me started on capitalism without regulation not being capitalism….

    Excerpt form P-T on Nall in Les Schwab Bowl:

    Ryan Nall, the 6-3, 235-pound running back and linebacker from Central Catholic who is bound for Oregon State, had a couple of very good plays on defense for the North and a few great runs in the first half.

    Nall, who ran 11 times for 71 yards, had to sit out the second half after tweaking his right ankle. That did not make the experience any less memorable for him, though.

    “Hanging out and getting to know some guys all week that I’ve played against, it was fun getting to know them,” he said. “It was just a great time. In the first half, I went on ‘D’ and tweaked my ankle a little bit in a pile. I didn’t want to risk anything, so I just stayed on the sideline, cheered my guys and got hyped whenever they made big plays.”

    Nall will head to Corvallis on July 7 to start preparing for the OSU football season.

    “I’m excited,” Nall said. “I can’t wait to get down there and show them what I’ve got.”

          He does seem like an Urlacher type athlete. I think the coke-head from Hillsboro/Nikegon was the same except for his steroid use leading to behaviors and habits which led to his demise. But coaches there saw his ability and used him at several positions.

          I guess there’s a fine balance between playing at a specialized position always and playing both ways. I always think of another CC alum, Owen Marecic, when going down this track. The kid was damn good both ways simply because he was used both ways. It didn’t lend to his being a pro football player per se. And I think Marecic was smart to just leave football behind. But being multi-faceted in college can lead to huge dividends in the future and outside the athletic world.

    I’d like to revisit the “best athletes play this sport” argument. In the passion of the argument, I forgot to say that I am wrong about my position within the US and some other major countries like China, India, Canada, Australia and South Africa. I posited that the best athletes were within soccer. That just isn’t true in the US. Yes, people like Adrian Peterson and Larry Fitzgerald are the best athletes in our country. They simply played different sports. I would still only select a couple dozen athletes to take back to their childhood and retrain them to be soccer players for the now in this hypothetical. But the reality in the US has always been that the best athletes follow the money.

    The money in most other countries is where the best athletes from each of those countries ends up. It just so happens that most countries in the world who value sports just loves soccer. And I don’t discriminate when we talk about the quality of the athletes. I want to say that our country produces the best.

    But do we?

    I think that time machine would prove that we really do value sports more than any other country. And that would lead to us being better at anything on which we focus. We’re just spread over many specialized events, and the best of OUR athletes play other boring sports. I say boring because if one doesn’t like a sport they call it so.

    Would our best athletes be the best in the world if all we had was soccer? It’s hard to argue that a population so large could not field a team of elites. Brazil is one of the bigger populations in the world, and they seem to do pretty well. I think the same could be said of us… and China. Although, I seem to get an “East Germany” feel from China for the time being.

    The overall argument suffers because we in the US don’t get to see soccer at its highest level. As a result, we’re the scrappy little kid who shows up every four years. We’re a neat story.

    I think we’re also on the verge of changing that. The kids who are watching this World Cup and thinking long-term don’t just think football, hoops and baseball are the only revenue sports anymore. They hear the talk about so-and-so getting absolutely obscene coin here and there, and that opens up their horizons to more than being the local hero. There is a giant market for athletes out there (internationally) which is being ignored by American athletes. I think that will change rather quickly.

      This argument, btw, arose from a discussion with one of my imaginary friends. He, like me, is solid in thinking that Ashton Eaton is the best athlete in the world… and possibly ever. Olive came up with the dumb argument a couple days ago of the best ever from Oregon… without defining what “from Oregon” meant. Eaton, of course, is a slam dunk. But I, as I am wont to do, argued as the devil’s advocate. You can look at several athletes and imagine their ability to be as proficient as Eaton overall. The only athlete I could come up with who I think would be proficient at all those measurable events was Usain Bolt. I do think he is the only one, if he put his mind to it, who could kill Eaton’s record.

      You’d have to define “best”.

      Could he hit a 90 MPH fastball?

      Could he throw a 90 MPH fastball?

      Could he throw a 40 yard perfect spiral TD pass and hit a receiver in stride?

      Could he last 30 seconds in the octagon with GSP?

      Can he do anything other than run around and kick a ball?

      Bo Jackson is the best athlete of all time. Who from Oregon most closely resembles Bo Jackson?

      Oregonlives list of best Oregon athletes is absurd. Not sure how many women they have on their list, but the best female athlete of all time would not crack the top 100 for Oregon.

          I haven’t heard this story. And there’s a lot I’ve heard about Alonso the drunk… and maybe something else.

            ya know what? you’re right. That was Rob Beard the kicker that did the curb stomping. My bad. Alonso is still a douchtard though

      Yea Villamin!

      Boo Peko! The third coming of Sasquatch (the second coming was that 5* DL that never showed up either)…I’m not one who thinks you want a guy that dumb on the team…

      Boo O-Line assignment ambivalence……

      Honestly, this sounds like Riley’s pre camp interview every freaking year.

      Big surprise, Riley “feels real good” about his team.
      How do you feel real good when there’s so much position shuffling going on, especially on the O-line.

      And they’ll be adding a “wrinkle” to the offense. I’m so sick of hearing about wrinkles. I think I need a new hobby….

    We lose three guys, possibly four (most likely four) and gain one, yet we are still at the 85 scholarship limit? I just done understand how that is calculated sometimes.

    Wonder where the OL will shake out, it seems like we have good depth from time to time, but when the dust settles it always seems we are short-handed. What has happened with Garrett Wienreich and Fred Laiuna? They were suppose to be contributors last Fall.

    The DL even without Peko looks solid, but missing that one key difference maker. We get most of the defensive back, but it was not very good last year, here’s to another year of development.

    Like every season how well or good this team performs is a complete mystery.

    former duck Dion Jordan suspended for PED’s. Cheating? No, they don’t teach players to do that in Eugene. It’s a “winning culture”. Another dumbass

      If the nfl tested like they do in professional cycling, there’d be about 6 guys left on each team.
