Per Mamma Machado.

Beavs offering 1.5mil max for the job. Sooo lame. That will not sit well with the fanbase and pretty much limits the options to OCs, DII coaches, and lower level retreads. No wonder BDC is out in EWU. Ed Ray needs to go. He has zero commitment to athletics.

Created a new Twitter hash is #angrybeavnation

With Riley gone, I am going after the media next, and ask you guys to join me. The shit they’re writing is inane. In short, boycott the Oregonian. I’ll be writing a detailed post how to block all their trackers and ads, too, if you do accidentally visit the site.

    Matt Wells could be gotten for that. He makes 575K base salary at USU.

      His buyout is significant, but I think we could swing it. Particularly if we put a similar buyout into his contract.

    Also another reason I am against Baldwin. Until there is a bigger commitment from the university any FCS coach that comes here will fail miserably. But but but, Chip Kelly. CK was the OC at Oregon for a few years before being promoted to HC. At fucking OREGON people. Where they throw all the money Fill Knight gives them at football. He was set up to succeed just nicely. It also happens that he is a good football mind. Anyone else think Chip Kelly would rip off the same success he had at UO in Corvallis? Bobby Hauck just failed miserably at UNLV. Where they have similar constraints and aging facilities. I am just flabbergasted that with the Pac-12 $$$ now coming in, even though it is less than was anticipated, the commitment continues be lacking from the university.

          No, that just generates more hits for his articles if you do it in the comment section. If you do it on twitter you’re just wasting time that could be better spent trying to shut down his revenue. $ is the only thing that hurts in the final analysis. He’d get over insults about the Ducks. He won’t get over losing his job due to a revenue collapse.

    Yep, this is horseshit. About ready for a fire Ed Ray campaign if 1.5 million is the max. 1.7 or 1.75 a much better number. Can’t be that far behind the rest of the Pac-12 in salary. Commitment from university needs to be raised. We should have 300K left from going cheap with Tinkle. Football needs more than this. Thought is with buyout included Wells could be had in the 1.7 to 1.75 range. Give Wells or the next coach enough resources to compete. If Baldwin was hired then you can pay 1.4 to 1.5. The better names deserve a higher committment. We have raised a billion in the campaign for OSU for crying out loud. Ed Ray you need to value the impact of successful sports at a major university. We expect better than this and that we strive for a high benchmark in both academics and athletics.

      Agree 1.5 is absolute base. Give Frost or Wells 500K bonus for 9+ wins and a good size bonus for winning the Civil War. Frost definitely has that presence I believe Wells also has. I have increasing confidence in Frost. Him and Wells are real deal and deserve some investment. Frost like Tinkle stands tall. He will have a strong offense at Oregon State and I am sure he would choose a good DC. Quit the poor act DeCarolis and Ray. Invest im some success at Oregon State and make your alums and students proud.

    How accurate are her sources likely to be? First of all, is Frost really going to be interviewed, and is the amount correct?

    Unless Frost is just really, really sharp and organized, this would not be a hire I like. Even though he’s not an “Oregon” guy, it would create the perception of trying to copy the Ducks. Wouldn’t he likely implement the same or similar offense?

He is ready to be a head coach and we can be the ones who recognized it and benefit. Have a good feeling about this. Get this done BDC. We can be good and relevant and Frost will do that for OSU.

    Per Eggers anonymous source within athletic department:

    • A source close to the OSU athletic department said AD Bob De Carolis and deputy AD Mark Massari are quickly putting together a search committee.”It will be Bob and Mark and one, maybe two others,” the source says. “It’s going to be small, and it’s going to be fast. You get your four or five candidates, you get on a plane and meet with them, and you make a decision.”I think it will happen within a week — 10 days at the most. You have to do that for recruiting, and also to help ensure the players on your team aren’t moved to transfer.”

    Ed Ray doesn’t care about athletics because he has a school that is making impressive strides academically. Far more important. Have you seen the new construction projects and seen the better talent coming in for research and instruction? The broader scope of research going on? As a university it’s going swimmingly. The Campaign for OSU raised so much money and that was spearheaded by Mr. Ray. Fire him? Eff that, his raise he just got was very well deserved.

      Ed is doing swimmingly for academics and wasn’t really wanting him fired at all. But this is a hugely important hire and it is time Ed embrace athletics as a contributing part of our mission. If a billion can be raised for academics it only takes a small slice of it or some more effort for athletics in addition and we would be on much sounder footing. They don’t need to go cheap. There is more acting of limited funds than there needs to be. Time for an athletics campaign or bringing it along on the ride for future efforts in the Campaign for OSU as a 5-7% benefactor. That is 50-70 million right there to help see that we are raising the entire university together.

        I read somewhere via OSUProf that a portion of the $1B does go to the AD. Can’t remember the figure but it was a pretty big chunk.

        Prof also says Ray has been supportive of athletics and that the real problem lies in DeCareless (duh). Also mentions Bob The Destructor spends less on football than he could (approved by the school) and that it’s BDC’s call, not the president’s. If true Ray needs to apply pressure and spend the necessary amount.

    The more I think about a Scott Frost hire the more I’m on board. Not only would you be getting an up and coming talent who is hungry to grow as a coach, but you’d also be causing a huge disruption to your in state rival’s program, in the midst of a potentential championship run. The timing is excellent.

    Hiring would have to happen in the next week and Frost would have to assemble a staff as well as contact recruits so he can start his head coaching career strong. Even if her were to finish out the season coaching for Oregon, he’d be only partially commited to that job with his foot out the door. Even better, he could poach some of the Oregon support staff on the way out.

    Would be a statement head coaching hire as well as a massive Fuck You to Phil Knight’s program. I’m all in at this point.

        Knight can’t give Frost a Pac-12 Head Coaching gig with Helfrich holding that position. OSU can. The man is a Pac-12/Big Ten guy and wants to compete for Rose Bowls as a head coach. His goals and Oregon State’s align in that respect. If hired he probably would do an excellent job at OSU and help raise our bar. That is good for the state and making the rivalry intense on the gridiron again. Also good for the Pac-12. With more success we might not be relegated to so many night games. I’m all for all of this.

        You think Phil Knight would match an OSU head coaching offer of $1.5-$2M? For an offensive coordinator currently making 400K? There no way he could even justify paying an assistant that much. He’d have to give all of his assistants a huge raise. Frost just got a whopping 30k raise last year so his salary would match their d coordinator.

        And if Phil waved his magic wand to get Frost into a hc position at another school, so be it. It still would weaken the staff at UofO and we could still go after another option. Frost is going to get a head coaching gig one way or another. Right now, only a small handful of teams are in position to make him that offer. I think he’d jump at the chance to get such a big raise and become a hc this year rather than sticking around one more year to hope for better offers. Similar to a player deciding whether they should enter the draft or wait for their senior year. He’d be smart to strike now, rather than banking on a better year next year with no Mariota.

        Name another school with a current head coaching opening that would be more desirable? Also consider if that schook would go risk going after an offensive coordinator with no head coaching experience. Colorado State’s in the Mountain West. I dont think Michigan fans would let them roll the dice with this hire. OSU is the best fit currently.

          I could see him hanging around for another year until something does open up. On top of that you never know what other jobs will open up after the bowl games are over. It’s hard to separate being optimistic and being realistic. Realisticly speaking, I think OSU could find a better coach that has HC experience. Mark Hudspeth or a Justin Fuente.

    If you wanted Riley gone so bad why are you pissed NE hired him. If you hate NE so much why the hell are you bawling this should be a win – win for you.

      We’re not pissed Nebraska hired him. Many of us are actually quite thankful. It was the only way out of a horrible contract our AD agreed to.

      We’re pissed that:

      * he preached loyalty and CONSTANTLY talked about never leaving Corvallis, and this and that, and kept people hanging on with the nice-guy hometown guy act, helping to mitigate poor performance… then when the going gets tough due to said bad performance, he bails AGAIN. While we don’t know the exact circumstances, signs point to him being full of hot air. Despite some people’s claims, he was not “run out of town” (though the criticism was rapidly mounting) and he still had a decent base of support.

      * he stubbornly refused to make necessary changes to coaching/staff, paying only tepid lipservice in acknowledging that things needed to be fixed.

      * he has local media wrapped around his finger to the point of near-lunacy. There is practically a Riley Distortion Field where every shortcoming of his must be a shortcoming of Corvallis or Oregon State, yet every strength must be due to his awesomeness.

      I’m sure others would add things to the list (his handling of an alleged rape incident before he bolted the first time, for instance). I like Mike Riley the Man – certainly less than I did a week ago given the first point – but Mike Riley the Coach appeared at the end of his mental rope here.

      He is probably a great fit for your program in a lot of ways. The salt-of-the-earth persona, not being a sleazebag, money for better assistance, ability to attract better recruits that can thrive in a pro-style offense, and relatively weak B1G competition should get him at least Bo’s 9+ wins and affection. Don’t think the head-scratchers are going away, though, and if you ever want to get rid of him, it’ll be tough to unite the fanbase because he’s just such a gosh-darn nice guy.

      Who’s pissed or bawling here? Point me to them so I can go laugh at their silliness.

      I’m serious. Show me someone upset about this on our end so I can go ridicule the moron.

    I see a lot of talk about Frost on here I I think it would be a mistake. Our current offence is not set up to run like the ducks and it would be 2-3 years before we would compete with it. Norvell from ASU I think is a better choice. He came into a cupboards bare situation and has had one of the best offences in the PAC for the past 2-3 years. ASU has more money problems than UO, so we may be able to get him fairly cheap (maybe 1 – 1.2) and use the surplus to get the best d coordinator we can buy. I think frost would be expensive and damage the fan base over the next 2-3 years.

      I don’t think Frost is coming.

      If Frost stays at Oregon now, he might also get a Natty on his resume (bleehhhhh) and be an even hotter candidate for another job next year.

      Norvell? He’s probably just getting ready for El Paso.

      You can’t hire a guy to fit what you currently have, that is too shortsighted. Anyone you hire has to be looked at as part of a 3-5 year transitional plan.
      That said, I disagree, OSU doesn’t have the read option QB needed to run the exact offense the Ducks run but they could integrate much of what Oregon does (if that is what Frost wanted) with current players.
      What Oregon really does is create mismatches through scheme and pace. OSU can do that do.

        Also, who knows what recruits Frost might be able to flip with a promise of early playing time (travis walker 4 star QB perhaps? Frost is the guy recruiting him).

        Lots of variables in play.

        I prefer Wells but you can’t be worried about 2015 with this hire, its a hire for 2016-2019.

          Yes, but why Frost over Norvell? Norvell has run one of the best offences in the PAC12 the past 3 years. And it has been his offence, with Graham running the defence. Also Norvell has coached in just as many PAC12 championships as Frost. I think Norvell has a better chance to turn us around (keep us from depending farther) and is less likely to get stolen away in the short term. Both Norvell and Frost will be Head coaches someplace in the near future, but Norvell will mitigate transition pains and put us into competition sooner.
          I think people are caught up in Frost because he is close and an easy choice.
          Also, 3-5 years is going to be too long here.. If someone does not work out in 3-5 years this job will be un-sellable.

            3-5 years to reach a peak, if you think someone is gonna walk in and turn this 5-7 team into a 10 win team next year without any players they actually selected (or very few) you have unrealistic expectations. Building a program is a process.

            The expectation for next year would be to keep the team competitive (hopefully getting to a Bowl game), then in 2015 the expectation would be a winning record (7 wins minimum), followed by continued growth towards the goal of getting to Pasadena.

            Expecting it to happen over night while also installing a long term system is unrealistic.

            I want Wells so I don’t care about Frost or Norvell but anyone who is gonna be bringing in a new system (and that needs to happen) needs to be given time to implement the system properly which is a 3-5 year window.

            I am a firm believer that you have to give a coach time to bring in their guys and coach them for a few years before you can properly evaluate a coach. Occasionally dumpster fires can be found quicker but in general you need some level of patience.

            Do you expect Tinkle to win the make the tourney this year? Next year? No chance this year, next year would be a cool bonus and the NIT is a realistic goal but 2016 is the year Tinkle should get the Beavs into the tourney and if he doesn’t do it by then you need to re-evaluate.

            Same with football. Bowl game next year is realistic, improvement in 2016 is expected, competing for significant bowl (Holiday or better) in 2017 is realistic, competing for division/conference by 2018. That is a fair progression (and even that is somewhat ambitious truthfully).

    Another recruit down. 4* Khaylan Thomas was ready to flip last week. Now he’s decided to stick with ASU.

    Fuck Frost. I’m for Tedford. He’s a good recruiter; he’s good with the boosters, and he will open the offense up. True, his record at Cal was hot and cold. But, if anyone is familiar with the dysfunctional UC system, he did pretty well. Had a heart procedure this fall, but he’s all healed up and he wants back into the college game. He has worked with a lot of guys who became good QB’s: Aaron Rodgers, for one.
