06.Dec.2014 Nice Guy Riley Strikes Again: Riley’s Goodbye to Players

I’ve heard from several sources that Riley’s goodbye to current athletes was short. Basically said ‘goodbye’ and then left. Very strange and it has left some of the current athletes hurt and confused.  –Mamma Machado

What a nice, loyal, family guy!

    I feel kinda duped.

        Given how poorly he speaks in public, I dont think you want long speeches from Mike, ever.

        But this sudden bailing so flies in the face of all his preaching about the value of continuity, loyalty, yada yada…. So much for Riley’s actual character.

    I don’t know what to think anymore. It seem like this move to Nebraska was on impulse, not thought through and poorly handled. It makes no sense, especially to go to Nebraska. Nebraska? Don’t pretend it was about money, the guy has plenty and a guarantee for millions more. It comes across to me more like dementia.

      I think MR was feeling under appreciated.

      He didn’t write the ridiculously lopsided contract, OSU did.
      He didn’t vote himself the most meager recruiting budget.
      He wasnt responsible for the rainmaking to finish the stadium.

      Riley’s been getting the same type of guys he always has been. The rest of the conference has been raising their games while BDC and Ray sit on their empty wallets.

      Really is as simple as that. A few recruitng misses among the starters and the shallow depth shows itself really badly. It’s not like the guys who were within one game of the RB twice had forgotten the recipe.

      Developments elsewhere have made that recipe far less potent.

      I recently wrote that the MR era was over and that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing, provided BDC retired or was fired too.

      So sorry the next hire will have his input. Nothing good will come of remaining too cheap to compete.

        He probably did feel underappreciated.

        But if you can’t handle criticism, especially when you’re 5-7, 3-9, 7-6, and 5-7 in four of the last five years including numerous flat-out atrocious losses… Let’s just say he better win in Nebraska, and fast.

        BDC and Ray are a whole other piece to the puzzle and not without blame for our current state.

        That’s another thing. Depth? The guy had been back 12 fucking years. If there was a lack of depth that squarely falls on Riley and the coaching staffs shitty recruiting. If you can’t recruit depth in 12 years you suck at it

      I think you are right. I heard him tell Phil Savage on SXM, when asked who of his assistants was deserving of a look, that Banker was deserving. Truly the most positive news, if it has been or can be confirmed, is that no current coaching staff will be considered for an interview

      Recommending Banker as his successor shows how much of nimrod Opie is. Bamker won’t get a sniff for a HC gig unless it’s at a high school… Opie’s flagrant push of his guys is truly embarrassing.

    Guys get a grip. Quit nitpicking fly poop. There was a big wave of momentum against coach Riley for both good and bad reasons. He had an opportunity to escape the incessant whining, an opportunity to leave Beaver Nation with great alternatives and he had the opportunity for a new challenge with a safety net. The best of all results for everyone at this point in time. Anyone that piles on now is lower than pond scum.

        In fairness, I don’t think he left his staff hanging. They may have been broadsided, but it sounds like the catalyst for this whole thing was his commitment to his staff (probably Banker in particular).

        I think the vast majority of his staff will be invited to Lincoln for more $$$.

          Exception being Garrett as Eggers and others have reported. I’m curious whether Riley was disappointed in Garrett from a performance standpoint, or if there were some personal tension there. Or maybe there’s just so little history there, Riley is OK with moving on to a more accomplished OC.

            The sad truth:

            Riley doing great in Nebraska is good for him but bad for OSU. It would reinforce the “can’t recruit”, 28 losing season trauma, and all that. A lot of people would infer that OSU is the big problem and overlook Riley’s complacency and unwillingness/inability to fix things that went awry under his watch in recent years.

            Kind of a crappy situation because he did a lot for the program and I don’t want to root for his failure.

          Good work! You cant tell what a coach will do after jumping jobs. Look at Richrod a WV, then Michigan and then AZ. Riley is now in a situation where he can crack the national scene and might be inspired. But even that wont make me sad he left here. He had become deadwood here, and thank god he is gone.

    The ultimate con men are the ones you don’t even suspect. I’m not calling Riley a con man, but after the rape scandal- along with his sanctimonious comments to Canzano to get on top of the situation, this abrupt Nebraska departure, and just his generally evasive attitude to anything with a smile and an “aw shucks”, my view of him is changing somewhat. I think there is more conniving and shrewdness than meets the eye, with the Mr. Rogers persona being part genuineness and a little bit of a well-crafted front. I think he realizes how well he can manipulate people with his affable personality, in addition to just genuinely being affable.

      I think you can count on the aw-shucks good guy facade he always presents to the public as a deliberate creation. And its a good idea — gets the media on your side, and you make no enemies of other coaches. If it is really Mike Riley, then he isnt much of an intellect, and is in fact a little stupid, because many situations call for more than aw shucks. The Brenda Taylor statements, for instance, needed some careful thought.

    It will be revealing to see whether MR offers Banker the DC job at Nebraska. MR has defended Banker for years — praising Banker as a top-notch DC. If that’s what MR really believes, he will offer Banker the job. If MR leaves Banker behind, we can assume the opposite (and Mike Riley’s credibility will take yet another well-deserved hit….)

      I think Banker goes to Lincoln although I do think there is a remote possibility that maybe Banker takes this opportunity to take his shot at being a head coach (even if its at the FCS or D2 level).

      I know many hate Banker (and he frustrated the fuck out of me too) but he’d be a good hire for many lower level schools.

    I was a Riley die hard believer until this year. I began to realize that the coaches were not finding and developing the talent that was needed, along with remaining static with their play calling. I do fear that they will be too cheap with the new coach hire and we will not improve. I am glad that Riley is gone and I want him to fail in Nebraska as He did in San Diego. Although He did us a favor by leaving, I feel that it was done in a poor manner and I still harbor resentment for first time that He left Corvallis.

          Talked to a few people that went to school with Anderson, they said he was a complete idiot. Not a jerk or anything, just stupid.

          Anderson remarked in article earlier this year – after he subbed and performed well in Newton’s absence – that he recently started showing up for camp in shape, rather than waiting until camp to watch his diet, and get in shape. That struck me as surprising. Really? it took that long in the NFL he figured it out? Great arm, but always struck me as Nuke LaLoosh from “Bull Durham.”

        Your idea of exciting and DA’s idea of exciting are probably different, so its not necessarily a bad thing he didnt say something of that magnitude. I cant think of a realistic vandidate that both the media and I would consider exciting. Tinkle was considered a boring hire when he was announced and Howland was the exciting name. Tinkle moves my needle more though.

    Bray leaving is not too surprising, and may be a positive in the long run.

    I’d like him to stick around too, but maybe Nebraska forces another D Coordinator hire on Riley, and Bray learns from another coordinator. Bray will be available in a few to several years as either a D coordinator or more, and he’ll have no real reason to be down on OSU for Riley’s volitional departure.

    Go learn more Bray, and come back some day.

    Let’s add this up…Brenda Tracey story, Riley talks about “loyalty” one day, leaves a few days later…says he “got more out of OSU than they got out of him,” says little in his goodbye to his players…says it was “more emotional for them than it was him”…and now maybe doesn’t take Banker with him. Hmm.

    Think Schnell, Goe, and the likes of Stewart Mandel, et al can put this all together – along with the coaching gaffes – and realize he had significant shortcomings as a coach and also maybe wasn’t the “nice guy” that all thought he was?

    Riley’s “niceness” is a distraction from his ineptness. Riley wasn’t as good as he was lucky.

      At the end of the day whoever we get will still put together a class (and one that fits what he wants) but will have holes for the next cycle so he can offer immediate playing time to both JCs and better frosh. This might let you get some recruits that wouldn’t normally even look your way. Assuming you have a quality recruiter that is.

      That said, Pete Carroll is 63 and without question he is the youngest coach in America.

          What’s his reputation as a recruiter?
          His resume stinks, so he better be excellent at that.

            I’m not advocating Hoke (I am a Wells guy) just saying I am not convinced what happened at Michigan means he couldn’t work at OSU.

            I do know that when he was at SDST (which to me is more relevant than Michigan for OSU recruiting) he was considered a very good recruiter but I have not thoroughly researched him.

            I just wouldn’t immediately hate Hoke like a would a Tedford if it came with a solid offensive coordinator too. That is all I am saying.

            They hire tedford and I’m out, along with 90% of the fanbase.

        Rich Rod was 15-22 (.405) at Michigan and Hoke was 31-20 (.608). I don’t know if that counts as destroying…

        I agree Frost or Wilcox would be sexier hires, but I’m not against Hoke if it had to be him.

      Because he sucked at a job with all the advantages and his teams got worse when his own recruits started playing. Did not even wear a headset on the sideline.

        He strikes me as a guy who worked hard to get a big payday, got it, and then bailed. Now he’s trying to live off the retread/what if, and some sucker like OSU will bite.

          Its also possible Hoke wants redemption and will work his ass off to prove he is better than the results he got at Michigan

          Don’t get me wrong, I only accept Hoke if it comes with an exciting OC hire too. Package deal.

        Riley wore a headset…

        Of course it also had TeleTubbies singing happy songs on it, but he WAS wearing one.

    All I know is I am watching the Baylor game and Baylor just looks like they are having fun, imagine a bunch of college kids having fun playing football?

    How I’d love to see that kind of energy in Corvallis.

    I’d honestly rather go 6-6 with the energy, excitement, and fun I see Baylor having than go 8-4 the way Riley has always done it. Football should be fun….

      That’s why Scott Frost, Matt Wells or Wilcox would all be more interesting and work better at Oregon State than most other names thrown out there. Frost has presence and would build an interesting OSU program that would get some real attention right away. The offense would start getting fun to watch and I would trust his leadership and ability to hire a good DC. Wells is a good well rounded young coach with enough personality and chops and comes with a capable DC. Wilcox brings Pac-12 knowledge and familiarity as well as an intriguing staff. This group of 3 potential head coaches has the most upside with recruiting and overall opportunity to grow the program IMO as well. Frost might be best with Wilcox on his heels and Wells only inches behind in terms of recruiting.

    just noted on oneclick that Goe has a story about Tedford wanting the job. I passed on Goe and I take a pass on Tedford too. The ONE guy Riley beat most routinely. C’mon man!

    if I was adept I’d provide the link, but check out the story on ESPN re: the owner of the Golden State Warriors and how much the team is improved, not so much because of the new coach (Kerr replacing Jackson) but because of the ASSISTANTS Kerr has surrounded himself with. Same roster; much improved results. There’s a moral to that story.

    I know this won’t be a popular opinion with most. And it’s probably a pipe dream anyways but I’m liking what I see from Georgia Tech. I’d take Paul Johnson as a head coach in a heartbeat. That’s the kind of ball control offense to beat the ducks!

        great column on him by Pete Thamel in SI’s MMQB from early November. (Side note: can’t imagine Lindsay writing anything remotely that good) I’d write a check tomorrow if they hired him. spent time hanging out with Urban, Nick Saban, Pete Carroll. That’s good company

      Too funny. Mediocrity, and short tenures assured with Banker in tow.

      One reason Pelini is gone is the epic defensive meltdowns against Wisconsin, the kind that were occurring multiple times per season under Banker.

    So Read, Cav, Banks and Bray…

    Kinda feel bad for Seumalo, his kid goes to CHS with my son, they’re both on the Spartan football team as well, tough to move kids, wonder where he goes.

    Had a conversation with Brennan’s wife not long ago, she was telling me her kids got “bullied” at school when the Beavs lost, she is good people, I’m sure they would love to leave. Not sure the kids in Lincoln will cut their kids any slack either, kids tend to emulate their idiot parents (my kids as perfect examples).

      I believe Brennan is going as well.

      Yeah, I agree. I wonder what happens to Coach Seumalo and then the impact to Isaac. Saw one of the reporters ask Isaac some questions regarding his dad and the changes… and he was like “I don’t know what’s going to happen. I just want to go home to my mom.”

    Well, shit and yay!!!! I’ve said this before, I’m a beaver fan first, husker fan second….happy the inept coaches are gone except for coach Bray, but upset that banker and Cav are going to nebraska….watch and see how many players transfer during and after spring ball…lineman might not like all the cussing Cav does at practice…isn’t that 1 reason people didn’t like Pelini?! This won’t go well with Eichorst…I could see Eichorst stepping in and saying cut down on the cussing to Cav. We will see tho.

      I for one am happy to see Banker go. Very predictable and soft defenses giving 5+ yards of cushion to opposing teams. It’ll be interesting to see how his defense does with higher rated recruits.

        Giving cushion is fine, you just need speed to be able to close in on the ball be it run or pass. It will be interesting to see what kind of recruits they get.

    Just throwing this out there

    Volleyball in sweet 16
    Mens soccer got to 2nd round of tournament

    OSU seems to be able to find success in all kinds of sports. Is it only football players that hate Corvallis? We should have Goe and Schnell investigate.

    Post at that Husker board in reference to Riles bringing Banker et al…

    “This is a low point.

    Tough to get excited about this.

    It’s like if your parents encouraged you to give away your PS3 to a friend and Christmas morning you unwrapped your gifts and found out your folks got you a PS2.”

    Great analogy, they may be getting the idea.

      Pretty close. They forgot to add that your folks paid a PS4 price for that PS2, and it came with a few Wii games, a dusty old NES cartridge and a broken Lite-Brite.
