17.Sep.2015 Gary Anderson, Honeymoon Phase Over?

Rating: 5.0/5 (2 votes cast)

The following is an excerpt between an inside source and I. Combine this with GA saying some players need to grow up (we have to assume that was Bright O, but who else?), and Storm not starting the game (possibly an injury, but he didn’t look injured). Then there’s the issue of possible locker room divide over the QB situation and locker room issues over moving players around so much — I’ve never seen so many players moving positions — and GA shunning a pampered media used to Father Riley.

Anyway, read below and decide for yourself. I sense something negative brewing, but wins fix negative vibes, and the Beavs should be able to eek out a win. I am definitely lowering my expectation (score prediction), though, as this seems like a divided team with some conflict brewing.

Source:

This has been a really weird week at practice.

First, there was zero energy or I should say very low energy for only being the third week of the season. It had a final week of the season after a blowout loss with no bowl game on the horizon kind of feel to it. Seth is even mentioning that he only needs to bring energy on the field.

Then players were dodging the media like crazy, saying they have to run to the weight room and that they will be right back, then never coming back out for interviews. It’s a big shift from previous week. I don’t know if this is because of what the media members who haven’t bothered to show up to anything all season wrote after the Michigan game or what.

The offense is still looking like a mess the past two days, Seth is short-hopping screen passes to receivers and Marcus looks rattled. Honestly, dating back to last week Mitchell has looked the best. If I’m the coaches I give him a couple series against SJSU, the quarterback play has been so poor up to this point, why not see what he can do in a game? Probably won’t see him, but I would give him a chance.

Angry:

That is crazy, but not totally unexpected — after week 1 I wrote something like the rush of hiring GA is now over and fans and players have to deal with actual results now. The players in the preseason were talking about adding on all this weight and muscle and talking like they were all world. I bet the kick in the nads at Michigan, and the return to reality, is hard to deal with.

Players will work hard for a taskmaster type coach when they see results, but it becomes harder when they work their tails off then get beaten that badly. It’s going to be harder for them to “respect the process” when it nets a beat down. It’s possible they’re still jet lagged from that trip, too.

Source:

There is definitely that feeling that the “honeymoon phase” is starting to end. Which is a good thing, it was never going to last forever especially during a rebuilding year.

Good call on the jet lag, everyone who made that trip has been complaining about being not up to speed quite yet. That is an excellent point. Maybe I’m just overreacting a bit on this, maybe not, we will find out on Saturday. Just an odd week.

      The more I think about it, the more I realize the Riley mentality softened the blows of losing to superior teams. The players probably never really expected to win in the first place, so no ego blow or disappointment after a big loss. Show up, get your participation trophy, move on, aw shucks

    Your source sounds like Schnell and I just have to take what she says with a grain of salt. However, I think this may go back to another thing I mentioned in a previous thread. That lack of leadership on the veterans to show the kids how you prepare and practice everyday. We just don’t have enough Seniors to show the way.

    If it is true than its going to be a long season. It does not bode well for the best recruiting weekend of the year so far when none of the players are happy, and they need to host the recruits?

    my interpretation of all this is that everyone, including the Riley hold-overs, bought into the new promise, and realistically so since it was based on enhanced conditioning and better coaching instruction. Now that everyone has seen that they’re not going to go 12-0, or struggle to win games more generally, the doubters are coming to the fore, almost certainly Riley-legacy guys. As for moving players around, how many YEARS have people in this blog complained about Stand-Pat Riley trying the same thing week after week with no change in results. I see this shifting about as a positive development though I admit that for players involved directly it can be challenging. The ONLY thing Andersen has done to date that in the retrospective view of two measly games is that Del Rio and Vanderveen were mobile enough to run the spread credibly, and more particularly, drop back in a passing formation and deliver the ball with a modicum of success. In that regard, if Collins and MM struggle this week we will certainly see Mitchell out there. This is shaping up as one of the more interesting early season, pre-conference, games in recent memory.

      Vanderveen is still on the team. If he’s athletic enough to play tight end he can sure as fuck run for a first down.

        I agree, and we can’t rule out seeing him at QB before the season is over. I also think two of the characters in the “need to grow up pool” are Victor and Caleb

      I’m not complaining that they’re moving people around. Mostly just the Nall situation where they KEEP moving him and asking him to change weight. That isn’t right.

      The rest are fine and some make good sense, but you can understand how players might not like it.

        And this is the team Riley left us. Do you think he bugged because of his checkbook? Do you think he bugged because of loyalty? That sounds about right for fans of the Riley.

        Get over yourself. This is a new day for us. We will win just to spite you and your ilk. Then we’ll win to spite me and my ilk. Then the world ends.

            And?

            I don’t disagree. Our D is the best I’ve seen since 2000. But they’re also young and dumb.

            I’m not sure what you expect out of the shambles Riley left of this program. He tucked tail and fled at just the right time for him. There was not going to be another chance. Dee needs to be able to shop on Madison Avenue baby… more than twice a year babay… yeah baybee!

            Do you think Riley had conviction enough in Banker’s abilities that he thought the D that lost nine starters could help a decapitated offense win half their games?

            Of course he didn’t. Who in their right mind would even remotely think that’s a possibility? I mean, come on! We’re all adults here. Well… I’m an adult awaiting your like-confirmation. But come on!

            This has to be the dumbest argument since our last Nike fail. I need to take up some religion just so I can blame some imaginary deity for this stupidity.

            Who are you going to throw out there? 2006 or 2007? They were good. But they were majorly flawed in scheme and did not play up to their potentials. Last year was as talented as this year’s squad in terms of athleticism. But they sucked eggs… big time.

            The obvious flaws in this year’s D are fixable and/or will correct themselves as experience is gained. But it’s also obvious that our D is playing at a much higher level than they have done for years. And there is so much upside to the group as a whole.

            Oh… and unlike a Riley team they didn’t give up when the game was out of hand. They kept heir heads up and kept playing. I reserve your right to call them out if they do so at some point this season. And you would be right if they do what Riley teams did at least once or twice a year, if not for whole seasons.

            That 2006 team, btw, gave up twice in disgusting fashion. One I remember was on the smurf turf. The other was maybe Cal? And then Al had to have a talk with Riley about how poorly his team was representing little old OSU.

            Someone quickly found an identity after that.

            Banker had a very good D around 2005 didn’t he? Statistically and specifically in terms of rushing defense?

            Then around ’07 spread offenses and read-option started being used in the Pac and Banker’s D kind of because something that was a nice surprise against USC once in a while.

            I think this year’s D will be one of the best in a while, not in term of yards and or points, but in terms of TFLs/sacks, big plays, turnovers.

    Interesting comments from GA on the Beavers inside the Huddle show about the outcome of the Michigan game: “Football isn’t a voluntary tough guy sport”, “just to run around and look pretty just isn’t good enough”, “It’s a man’s game, let’s go play it the right way”. “I’m not used to being around that” (re:people running the ball at you at will). Maybe the guys are dealing with a nice reality check and the coaches are on them about basically being tougher. Probably the change up in positions along with the kick in the groin is what your source was seeing. The team’s still purging Riley’s stuff and it’s probably jarring to the upperclassmen leaders. It’ll be interesting to see what develops, and a win won’t hurt.

        Riley would not beat them. We’ve been over this already.

        If Riley was still here, we would be maybe 1-1, likely 0-2. And we would be facing a SJSU team who had no QB questions because they would run over Mark Banker’s D with their shiny new QB named Seth Collins.

        Don’t think that wouldn’t happen. The personnel on this team are no different than when Riley ditched us except that GA managed to poach some beef for the trenches, a long-standing complaint of anything Riley-related.

        And we will get to see them play… another Riley-fail.

            Or… he could just be a liar and not the nicest guy in the world. If that’s the case, then I need for you to bring evidence against him that he is in fact a liar who tucked tail. Otherwise, he’s just a coach who ditched OSU.

    I believe I wrote about this exact same phenomenon occurring within the locker room. From the outside, Collins seems like a diva/selfish/cancer.

    I agree that anytime a new coach is hired, it’s going to take some time to get everyone on the same page.

    The game this week should be a good test. It’s a game that OSU should win easily, but will they? I’ll be watching for player reactions when things aren’t going their way. If they’re tuning out the coach and moping around, this week could be where the wheels fall completely off.

    If the Beavs somehow lose this game, I’m not sure they’ll have enough this year to finish higher in conference than WSU or Colorado. Which, in all reality is where they’ve been the past few years, the basement.

    Good coaches can turn things around quickly if the team is unified. Let’s hope this team can overcome Collins, the play calling, and the blinding lack of Pac12 caliber talent on the roster.

      Which, in all reality is where they’ve been the past few years, the basement.

      We were dead last in the north last year. We won zero games against anyone in our division. And if we didn’t play CU and barely beat them, we would have just been the dregs of the conference. So it’s not in all reality. it’s just reality.

      I’m also starting to wonder if it’s the play calling. I see the fades (3 of them) thrown to Villamin, and on each he was pressed while Bolden’s DB was ten yards off the LoS. Yet SC locked onto the left side and ignored the quick hitch to the right. So I don’t know if that was the call or if it’s just poor decisions made by a QB who needs more reps.

      This was a bit more creative than I expected from OLive, which has been descending at a rapidly increasing rate the past few years. I appreciated the nod to longer-term accomplishments of people associated with the university. Including men and women’s basketball would have been appropriate and/or acknowledging the strength of coaching across the board.

      Undeterred by Michigan loss is right. Andersen has been through this before. He’s not worried.

        Put Jaquori with those four, and it’s hard to say it’s not another top 10 class. Someone said they thought he was going Utah, though. I think he might go Wiscy despite knowing Bo is only good for maybe one more year.

    Maybe the honeymoon phase is over, for GA.

    Here’s a guy who took a job on short notice… probably had no idea how bad the roster had been depleted, how weak the players had been allowed to become, what a gee-golly attitude permeated the locker room….Then he landed in Corvallis. Welcome to Smiley World GA.

    OK, maybe there is some grumbling in the locker room. I imagine some players don’t like having to put in the work, the effort. Football isn’t for everyone. Expectations are a bitch. Generally when expectations are put in place, the cream will rise and the rest will settle.

    No more scholarship + tenure equating to playing time.

    Players who make plays will now see playing time. Novel concept at VFC. Shaking up the status quo isn’t always easy. Time for scholarship players to earn their scholarship, or take a seat.

    I am curious though how long it will take to, as Scotty put it, wash the stink of Riles off the team. GA players and a new culture will take time, at least now there is hope.

        Exactly. The Michigan game was always an L on the schedule. The only question was whether or not the team would be competitive, and they were for one quarter before shitting the bed. If Riley was still coaching the Beavers, it would have been 45-0 with him alternating QBs every down a la Wisconsin in 2011.

        If the Beavers play like garbage tomorrow, then I’ll have some real concerns. It would also give legitimacy to many of those who picked the Beavers to finish 2-10 as San Jose is the weakest team left on the schedule.

    Listen, no one with any brains thought this was going to be easy. Outside of the marginal success of Biley OSU has a LONG, LOOOOOOONG tradition of, shall we say, under-performing. Did anyone truly think GA was going to come in and take a bunch of underclassman to the pinnacle in one off season? I doubt very much Gary Anderson or any of his staff thought that. I doubt after one tough game and some rumblings in the locker room if hes ready to throw in the towel.

    Like Tlingit said, RELAX. Settle in, its going to be several season before we really know what kind of coach he is, if he can recruit, if he can build a program, and if he decides to stay after that. Getting your knickers twisted before that is kind of pointless if you ask me.

    I’d like the visitors list better if there were a few more linemen sprinkled in there. Seems like bringing in linemen has always been difficult for the Beavs. Hopefully this too will become easier over the next couple of years.

    Just basing this on what was Tweeted I got the feeling that Bassett was very pleased when he got the offer from Florida. Here’s hoping Tinkle and the coaching staff can work some magic and get the kid to think that Corvallis is where he needs/wants to be.

      I’m wondering if any of the Poly lineman they were recruiting heavily this summer are still planning to visit?

      Eletise committed to Arizona. He still pays attention to OSU’s games, but last I checked, he didn’t have any visits planned. I have a sneaking suspicion he’s not entirely out of the picture and will still visit.

      Auwae committed to UCLA, but at the time said he still planned to take some official visits, and the Beavs were high on his list. I think he visits as well.

      Herbig, committed to Stanford. Seems solid with them and I wouldn’t expect any chance of him flipping.

      Mauigoa, when I last heard anything about him, it was down to OSU and WSU. Not sure if he will take any official visits, since coming over from America Samoa is no small trip, and he was just here back in June.

      Their football program is something like six years old, and two or three years of that have been on the FBS level. The Sun Belt is pretty much a joke with one or two good teams every year. An equivalent would be if the Big Sky moved up to FBS as a whole. EWU and Montana would be decent, but the rest are still FCS schools.

        A team at the level of the Ducks should be ashamed and embarrassed scheduling Georgia State. Especially in week 3. Week 1 you could understand it a little more. I’d drop them in the polls even if they win by 70 just for the cowardly scheduling. This seems like a game to run up their stats so they’re in the top 10 offensively the rest of the year.

          It’s a body bag game. I think the only reason the Sun Belt moved up was to get the big payouts like this (from mostly SEC schools). SO the SEC schedules one Sun Belt team and one FCS team to go along with their “most difficult ever” eight game conference schedules. And one of those usually gets played in game 11.

    None of this is surprising, Anderson has a roster full of Riley’s players. They really do not fit what Anderson wants to do and frankly ideally Anderson will get enough of them to leave the program that he can fill a full 25 man class next year with the idea of building for 2017. Year 3 is about as early as you can reasonably expect much success when you change both your offensive and defensive systems and go with a frosh QB.

        Oregon media will spin it as Nebraska “having to adjust to Riley’s complex pro-offense,” and say that “takes time.” They so far have shown little patience with Andersen, who must also transition a team with very inexperienced QBs to boot….

        I used to think Riley might make it three years just because its often so hard for an Administration to acknowledge and correct its own poor decision. Now I doubt he’ll see next spring camp.

    What really pissed me off about Banker was in interviews with Nebraska media he blamed his former OSU players for his poor performance (especially against the Ducks). Can’t believe how he threw his former players under the bus like that. And it’s obviously not true.

    The fact that obviously he and Riley actually believe that’s true about their offense and defensive schemes shows how delusional they are.

    Even if that’s true, how about adapting your system to the talent level you have? That’s what good coaches do. They don’t repeatedly fail and then blame the players. Disgusting.

    The difference in the success of the Spartan and Beaver defenses, Banker said, was the “Jimmies and Joes” the teams had on their rosters. Oregon State generally didn’t land the same level of talent as Michigan State — or, for that matter, Nebraska. So Banker is looking forward to recruiting at a school whose brand is known nationwide and has the history the Huskers do.

    Silverstream’s post just got deleted on 247. It was great. They probably banned him entirely…

    Nice someone quoted it:

    silverstream055 said… (original post)

    Agreed. Much respect to Nebraska for scheduling out-of-conference games against tough teams such as BYU and Miami. Nebraska has indeed earned a reputation, over many years, for being a great program that competes — and wins — the right way. Both are important: (1) competing the right way; and (2) winning. Mike Riley will do okay on #1. But probably not so much on #2 (as you are already starting to see).

    So, please watch Mike Riley at the post-game press conference following today’s bad loss to Miami. Be on the lookout for awkward and inappropriate smiles, failure of MR to hold himself and his staff accountable, and cliches about “finding our identity”, the need to “get better every week”, and “lots of positives, but also lots to work on.”. In Corvallis, we got tired of seeing this same MR schtick over and over again after poor performances. I’m guessing Nebraska fans will be much less patient than we were with MR’s happy talk, and MR’s failure to hold himself and his staff accountable for poor performances such as what you saw today against Miami….

          Riley won’t get 7 wins this year. With his deficiencies he has his work cut out to get to 6. I’d say its about 50/50 between 5 or 6 wins. Easy division but Riley is that bad against even mediocre competition. They will be in a few more games that will all fall as losses due to his unique abilities as an aging dinosaur coach. His descent will continue until he is fired. This downward spiral began with the lifetime deal at OSU and the karma payback for that is a serious bitch. It only ends when he is fired.

      Chip Kelly is the coach they need for the things they want (running QB, dominance at nearly any costs).

      Kelly may flame out in the NFL/ I think his “me/system over everything” approach may not work in NFL, and his personnel decisions have been very questionable in that he seems to be willing to pay more for different players that are not empirically better than the players he’s replacing. That can’t cut it in the NFL too long, the bottom line is too important.

    Bottom line for the cruising coach,….do just well enough to keep that contract shit moving….

    But its still a loss, and at the end of the season, they are gonna look at that.

    Hey, all in all, Mike Riley has had a great coaching run, made a lot of money, generated a rep that for whatever strange reason will live on, you wait. So he should pat himself on the back — not bad for a cruising coach.

    I can’t tell if anyone mentioned this, but Riley was lucky to be able to take it to overtime. When it was 33-16, they went for two. As I’ve been taught there is no point to going for two when a negative outcome makes it a three score deficit. They got lucky and made the two to make it 33-18, but a miss and they would have never been able to get the ball back three times which they would have needed with a 17 point deficit. Damn, I wish they would have missed that two.
