13.Aug.2015 Thursday Practice Report

This was public on rivals, so I assume it’s fair game that someone captured it then.

The freshman connection

Quarterback Seth Collins and wide receiver Paul Lucas put on quite a show during practice with several big plays in the first day in pads.

The first came game during 7-on-7 when Collins hit Lucas on a quick slant and then took it the distance. The safeties came on a blitz leaving one-on-one coverage on the outside, which Lucas took advantage of.

Later during live team drills on a very similar play, Lucas caught a pass from Collins over the middle then broke a tackle, then made several defenders miss in the open field and then raced down the sideline before being caught at about the five yard line.

That play sent the team into a small brawl at the goal line were several players (including Collins) had to be taken out of the drill for a couple of plays.

Running backs get their chance

With Storm Barr-Woods and Chris Brown not participating in practice on Thursday this gave opportunities for Damien Haskins, Ryan Nall and Jaylynn Bailey to get a heavy dose of reps.

For most of the team session, Nall struggled to find running lanes, which resulted in minimal yardage. On one of the final plays of the practice however, Nall broke through with a 15-yard touchdown through the middle of the defense. What was impressive with Nall that it usually took multiple defenses to take him down, even if was close to the line of scrimmage.

Both Haskins and Bailey had good days running the ball with the extra reps they were getting. Bailey showed that he was a capable pass catcher by catching a wheel route down the sideline for a big gain, while Haskins demonstrated his unique blend of speed and strength bouncing off tackles for a several good gains.

First day in pads brought some big hits.

The team had been itching to get into full pads and two plays in particular really stood out when the team when live.

The first big hit I saw came from corner Kendall Hill on Lucas. Lucas ran a bubble screen from the slot and as soon as he touched the ball, was met by Hill who was unblocked and welcomed Lucas to college football. Think Sheldon Brown’s hit on Reggie Bush in the 2006 NFC playoffs. After that play the energy level spiked drastically.

Shortly after that when the offense was facing a fourth-and-short situation, Marcus McMaryion handed the ball off to Bailey, as soon as he took a step, he was met by blitzing Cyril Noland-Lewis who came in like a missile and was untouched by anyone on the offense to make the play in the backfield and force the turnover.

Other Notes:

  • The quarterbacks rotated more than in previous practices, all three freshmen worked with the first unit during team and 7-on-7 drills. Collins had his best day throwing the ball by my opinion. All the quarterbacks made nice plays through the air.

  • Coaches are using a quick whistle whenever Collins decides to take off and run, once he crosses the line of scrimmage the coaches blow the play dead.

  • Dwayne Williams, Jordan Villiman, Storm Barr-Woods did not practice today. Malik Gilmore was back in full pads after sitting out a couple of practices.

  • The offense put the ball on the ground a couple times, whether it was a botched snap, a sloppy handoff or the defense stripping the ball the offense at times did not protect the ball.

  • McMaryion took the first snaps when the team when live. The starting defense during the session was Kyle Peko at the nose tackle, Lavonte Barnett and Titus Failauga and the defensive end spots; Jaswha James, Bright Ogwoegbu and Caleb Saulo as the linebackers. With defensive backs, Larry Scott, Treston Decoud, Devin Chappell, Noland-Lewis and Justin Strong to round out the defense.

  • When players were still talking after a whistle, there was no “Jiminy Christmas” being yelled at the players, instead a more vulgar phrase that I’ll let you use your imagination on.

  • TE Caleb Smith was wearing a different (ineligible) number at practice the past two days. Although he is wearing No. 57, he is still lining up and playing tight end. No switch to the offense or defensive line.

    Before any blitzers ask, this didnt come from me. Pretty uneventful anyway. These 20 minutes media sessions for the last 20 minutes of practice dont reveal much since theyre at the end of the day. Guess we’ll just have to get used to that.

    “It’s football,” defensive end Lavonte Barnett said. “I think it’s the style that Coach A brings to Oregon State … everything else is kind of, you kind of have to hold yourself back. You have to pull up or stop five yards ahead. It kind of changes football, it takes away from it. When you’re able to really let loose. It’s just what we want to do. It’s why we play football.”

    That’s a direct shot at the Riley regime.

    Wonder how much we'll be in the 3-3-5. Certainly is a pretty good defense vs. all the spread offenses we'll be facing.

            Hm, well a lot of people on FB recommended kauai, and my brother has been to hawaii 9 times and said it was the best spot. I trust him; we have similar tastes. So, we’ll see. I found a very cheap flight, only 438 round trip, non stop. Seems so low. I can always go to Maui next time. I feel like Hawaii requires at least 3 visits to do right anyway.

            I also want to see that volcano NP, so eventually I’ll have to go to the main island.

            Kauai is by far my favorite. It suffered for a couple years after Iniki. But it picked its way up. You won’t be able to do all of these during your stay.
            http://www.hawaii-guide.com/kauai/hiking_trails
            Kalalau is the king of all hikes, but there are some stunning treks along ridgelines (like Kalepa), through and above Waimea Canyon and inland on the east side at many points. If you get to Polihale Beach it’s a hike in itself. But don’t go swimming. It’s one long nasty current across the face of it that just washes into open ocean.

            And if you want the boat ride of your life over the course of a long day, go with Captain Zodiac. After that ride, you will never sleep better.

            Hm, yeah I am pretty adaptive. Been to 47 States now and find something good about each one (except Ohio and Kansas). So I think it will be great, and if Maui is better, then next year I’ll be in for a bigger treat. Right now I really want to be away from everything, and I am told this island is the most desolate. Hope I can find the Beav game — that’s my main concern about the trip

      you really can’t go wrong visiting the four major islands, and if you can everyone should visit all four of them in their lifetime if you can. Kauai is on the quieter side of the spectrum, which is its own reward. Less traffic, hub-bub etc. It’s the oldest of the big islands geologically, which to me makes it less interesting than the islands at the east end of the chain, but the north coast has great scenery and the south and west side nice sunny weather patterns. Any island that’s home to Honalee has something going for it.. There’s a quaint old town on the southeast side of the island, can’t remember it’s name, but it’s a real throw back to old Hawaii The weather should be fine then, likely a little warmer than where you you’re coming from at that time of year. So Cal, right?

        Central Coast, CA.

        Why does it being the oldest make it the least interesting?

        Where on kauai would you recommend staying? We weren’t sure if north or south coast was better. We’re researching it now.

          We stayed near Poipu on the south end, in a private rental house, it was nice and quiet on that side of the island and frankly it doesn’t take long to drive anywhere.

          Just back from Kauai two weeks ago. Poipu (south side) is the more developed tourist area. Some nice restaurants and shops. Good beaches depending on the time of year and which direction the swells are coming from.

          North side of the island is more rustic but beautiful. Two lane roads winding along the coast and through forests. There are little villages along the way but plan ahead for food, drink and gas. Make sure you visit Queen’s Bath in Princeville.

          Waimea canyon (west side of the island) was forgettable but we didn’t hike the entire trail so maybe we missed something. Biggest overall tip I can offer: hit one of the few supermarkets on the island to stock up on drinks and snacks. Eating/drinking out all of the time added up quickly (two drinks, two burgers + tip = ~$60).

            That’s good info. We’re staying on the north side, which i hear has better beaches/snorkeling and prettier but also more rain. I thought that dry west side looked interesting in photos. We’ll see.

            What is the best way to go about snorkeling gear? Buy it and pack it, or are rentals abundant and cheep? Hopefully the tides and currents are okay for snorkeling this time of year?

            Rent the snorkel gear. We thought about buying but you can rent for cheap everywhere (“Snorkel Bob’s” has multiple locations.)

            The swells are big on the south side for half the year, then switch to the north side but I’m not sure of the timing. We tried to snorkel several spots along the south and east coasts but it was impossible and ended up driving around the island where the water was much calmer in the north (Tunnels Beach was great).

            Didn’t get a chance to check out Napali Coast but everyone we talked to said it’s a once in a lifetime experience (you can only get there by boat or helicopter).

            Tunnels Beach on north side across from the cave is great snorkeling, saw monk seal while snorkeling there last time and many turtles. 30? Molokai is an island off the beaten path. Take the ferry there, rent a jeep and have a huge island to yourself.

          as to the geology question, I just find the process of volcanism one of the major attributes of the newer islands: La Perouse Bay and Haleakala on Maui, or Kilauea, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa on the big island; heck, even Punch Bowl and Diamond Head on Oahu–all very compelling.

          as for accommodations you’ll get a lot of recommendations for Poipu; and it’s hard to go wrong there. However, we’ve stayed up by Kapa’a as its more “centrally located” (if that makes sense in talking about a circular highway running around the perimeter of 3/4 of the island). Koloa is the old town I was trying to remember the name of in my original post.

        Why are they on Egger’s case? If Husker Nation had done one fucking ounce of research, there should have been no surprises. Egger’s and Riley’s long standing relationship is no great mystery. In reading the article, it seems like Riley is going to great lenghts to recreate “Beavers good ol’ boys” coaching network part two in Lincoln. We know how that ended in Corvallis, lil’ Husker has no clue what the future holds.

    Big day today! Friday! Heading down to C Town tonight! Highly reguarded OL Recruit Sean Auwae is going to announce his commit! Sounds like we have a pretty good chance of landing this kid! Would be a great addition.

    I normally don’t do this, being a former coach and all but looking ahead to next season, I seriously think about 1999 and 2000! This season being ’99 and next having the possibility of being like ’00. Team on the rise, improving under a new coaching staff, the defense has a chip on it’s shoulder, plenty of young guys and experienced guys that will return…on and on! But the Offensive Line is going to be Sick! Kearsley is waiting to play, Seumalo is returning along with the whole starting line besides Mitchell. So Isaac slides back into Center and Kearsley and/or another slides in at Guard and we’re about two deep at least with talent and experience. Maybe Haskins uses this season to spring board himself into a Simonton like role! Our QB will have a year under his belt. This is gonna be something special guys!

    Go Beavs!

      I’m thinking Louisville, but not counting us out. A few weeks back, before he released his top 5/6, there was a Hawaiian blog with an interview from him saying his top 3 were Louisville, Ttech and a 3rd team i cant recall. I tweeted it out saying OSU was out of the running. He quickly messaged to say that report was incorrect and OSU was in his to 5 for sure and that OSU was very high on his list.

      So either the hawaiian blog/interview was incomplete, or he really had a top 3, leaving OSU in the 4/5 range. Then UCLA offered, suddenly creating a top 6. He’s an early enrollee guy who will join a team in the spring. I’m hopeful the whole left by Mitchell graduating this year will open the chance for immediate playing time and look enticing.

      Also, whoever he picks today isn’t guaranteed he’ll stick. He has said spots are filling up on teams so he wants to find a spot now so he doesn’t miss out, but still see how things play out (i’m paraphrasing)

        well that is lame. in that case, i don’t even care if they land him. i can’t stand guys who do that.

          TBH, this is how most high level recruits are. The more Gary Andersen goes after high level players courted by multiple schools, the more LOI deadline drama we’re going to see because many of these kids don’t make up their minds until LOI day.

          Sucks, but that’s the way it is. As long as OSU has a great season this year, I’m not going to worry too much about the recruiting situation.

            At least he didn’t show up in an orange shirt and pull a UCLA cap out from under the table.

      I should have guessed. Based on the timing of the ucla offer and the sudden decision to announce this week, plus then”Spots filling up” comment. Just like Nate Herbig with Stanford

        The only reason I can ever see for attending UCLA is the girls. But to play for Jim Mora over Gary Andersen? bad decision. Utah and OSU were his best fits culturally and coaching wise.

          The girl angle reminds me of a quote from Road Trip.

          “….. The clock is ticking my man. Before you know it you’re gonna be forty and have to pay for these kind of girls.”

      Fwiw, he said he still plans to officially visit all of the teams in his top 6, except Utah. So Beavs still have a shot. Feels like UCLA put the pressure on to commit now or never, and he didnt want to miss out.

      tough break, question: Are we putting too much stock in the Poly angle?

        I get why they do it, having several coaches with Poly ties(Sitake, Tuiaki,Chad,Woods)
        I’d rather they focused more on best player available. In this case, Auwae fits that criteria. It wasnt just because he’s a Poly guy.

    Beaver commit Tyson Penn gets the Rivals/Oregon State 3* bump. Another generic middle of the road 5.5 rating. I think that’s 5 or 6 guys now who are all 5.5.

        When you consider we have highly touted guys narrowing us down to their top two or three teams already with this new staff, that speaks highly about the change in direction of this program. We will land a few of these guys, enough hooks in the water and you’re going to catch a few! Riley was never going after guys like this (higher ranks, this aggressive)! We don’t need a whole team of these guys, just a few in key positions. Maybe a skill position on O or D (RB, WR, TE, LB or DB) but primarily a DL and/or OL. The trenches is where the war is won (ask Oregon about Ohio St, ha ha). I have a feeling we will land at least two 4 star guys in this class (and no I don’t completely buy into star ratings).

        Other thing to consider is our Florida connection. Think back to the few players that we have had here from Florida (and then consider none of them were really highly rated coming in), Sabby P., Yevenson B., Chad Johnson. Just those three guys probably all fall on the top 30 all-time beavers list! And now we have several of gems like them on our roster and several more to come.Tellin’ ya, something special’s about to happen here!

        Go Beavs!

    I think I’ve found a follower to run the @beavrecruiting periscope account from the scrimmage tomorrow at Reser. Not sure how much footage will get captured since he wants to actually watch some of the game too. Wanted me to ask for suggestions of what to focus on? It won’t be the whole game, but will hopefully be able to focus on specific position battles, etc. Or maybe it would be better to just have him capture the whole field of play? Any suggestions?

        Definitely. Particularly, who comes out with the first team.

        I bet both McMaryion and Collins end up starting this year though.

    Not sure if I like seeing guys get juked out, especially possible starters like Cyril Noland-Lewis but I guess this is fun stuff to look at. Much rather see a nice, clean hit like NL on Bailey.

    Watching PAC 12 replay of the Utah game last year. Defense actually doesn’t look bad. Strong looks like the best player on the field. Offensive play call is the worst thing I’ve ever seen. Almost forgot how bad it was with Riley.

    Anyways makes me pretty optimistic with a better offensive strategy and allowing the defense to be more aggressive, this seasons team could be extremely dangerous

    Cool seeing drills but horrible tackling going on…hope it’s just designed for reps.
