Some nice pickups the past few days. Rivals has Morris and Taylor as 5.7, which is the highest a recruit can go before getting a 4-star. Taylor very likely will be a 4-star. Now the harder part of keeping these guys.

Back to the social justice warrior talk in the other thread, this video is pretty good, and it relates to what’s going on on college campuses. Nice to see growing backlash against these people.

    Until the Beavs get a few signature wins (PAC 12 wins), I think that recruiting will be decent but not great. I really believe that after this season we could see some very interesting recruits looking our way.

    Anyone have any analysis on the LB pick-up. Seems like limited video of him on D.

    It almost seemed that all of those recruits announcing was planned on the same day to make a big splash. Idk if im right but not a bad plan if it was true. Its still early but luckily Andersen has done a good job of keeping most of his recruits so far. It will also be interesting to see what happens when all of our mission players start coming back. Hopefully they dont follow sitake to byu.

      I think it’s cute when these people get their think on.

      stopped watching when I saw the list of campus zeitgeist or whatever.

      1. I hate to defend Ducks, but there was nothing to nothing about that MLKj quote “story.”
      2. Recognizing and removing micro-inequities is a rather effective management tool. I don’t know about this specific implementation, but like anything else it can be done poorly… I guess. I do enjoy the knee-jerk fallacy of division in mentioning it.
      3. Apparently it’s hard to fire a lawyer who can’t teach. But the end result will be the same as the originally intended result. More egregious to me was OSU pinching pennies so much that it kept them from doing the right thing and slapping a for cause clause in Wagner when she was canned.

        Ya thats what i figured but im just saying. Plus Andersen seems to be ahead of the curve on a lot of players. Do guys ever get downgraded?

          In general, i think once a guy achieves a set of measurables which lead to a 4* rating, they keep that measurable ( like a personal best in the 40M )
          So, the only way they would get downgraded is if the benchmarks for a rating change. Also, I think there is a curve involved. So if a bunch of players move up into 4* status, it may bump some of the existing 4* guys back down to 3*.

          It’s all variable based on how the site doing the ratings decides to measure things, and how accurate their measurements are, etc.

          That being said, I’ve rarely seen guys move down, other that a 4* highschool guy who goes JUCO, then somehow gets rated a 3* after 2 years of junior college ball.

          Why does everyone choose to ignore the RIley offense when he had a good O Line and good running backs? I’d think the Run Pass was close to 50/50. Bernard and Quizz both had a lot of carries. Riley’s fault was that he knew who the best player(s) on the team were and put the ball in their hands as much as possible.

            Yeah, Riley’s a real genius; kept saying he wanted to run more when Mannion was QB and just wasn’t able to bring himself to do it. How ’bout that W/L record!

            It’s all good though, Mannion got his record and Riley got his walkin’ papers.

            Yve got to carry the ball behind a good line. Quizz did not.

            On top of that, Quizz was the only back who would carry the ball. The second leading back in terms of carries was the QB, because sacks are counted as runs… as are kneel downs. Maybe I overstate this, and the fly sweep was the second option. Does it matter? The fly sweep wasn’t to establish dominance at the line. It was to avoid it.

            Remove the sweeps, sacks and kneel downs. And what was originally, during the best seasons, a 55/45 pass/run ratio turns into about 63/37. And that includes those games where we were leading but decided to run four straight three-and-out series consisting of nothing but runs and starting in the late third quarter. That was how those 30-10 leads ended up being 30-24 wins… where the pass/run ratio was still 40/30 despite the last 12 plays being dive plays.

            The two worst games ever were in 2012 when we lost to two of history’s worst run defenses because we felt we had to go all pass happy against them. Oddly enough, Mannion came in as a reserve in one of those games and did nothing but hand the ball off and run it over the right side.

            Boom! TD!

            Then we went back to doing nothing that was going to work, namely running it down Texas’ throat … like the rest of their conference did to them.

            If we go back and look at when we had SJax, some real hosses in the trenches and Chryst calling the plays, I think we will find some more balanced ratios. But that was about it.

    Maybe this snub by the NCAA Committee and Meggs at UW is a good thing for Pat Casey. It will perhaps rekindle a fire under him. I know he’s previously expressed his views on the toll it takes on him to manage and nothing gets your juices going when you’re disrespected.

          That said, only a black Muslim sports icon could say what he said and not be villified and outcast. I imagine that interview took place in the 70s and things were very different then, but if he was a white Texan he still wouldn’t have lived it down.

            Oh, he was vilified and outcast before any of this. Hell, he was vilified and outcast before he was Muslim… but after he was a black man.

            He talked about all of it in his autobiography. He understood in his later years that he was wrong about a lot of stuff because he was being reactionary to how he had been treated, not rational.

            He said something along the lines of, “I said I was the greatest, not the smartest.”

            The Playboy journalist, who interviewed the boxer, was closer to the mark when he observed of his subject: “You’re beginning to sound like a carbon copy of a white racist.”

    BTW, today the Jags eliminated the (4th seeded) losers from Alabama State. On to game 5.

    Vandy gets bent over by Xavier 15-1. Ole Miss goes 2 and BBQ in their OWN regional, Clemson going down in flames vs Oklahoma St in their own regional as well. Virginny loses in their own regional to East Carolina. Yup. The committee got this bracket right. How bout the ACC and SEC just have their own tournament and they can declare the winner national champion?

    ASU staved off elimination earlier today.

    NC State about to get sent to the losers bracket in their own regional as well. But the odds are still that better than half of the super regional hosts will be from the ACC and SEC. Since ya know, they got 13 of 16 regional host sites.

    Ole Miss – 2 and BBQ
    Vandy – 2 and BBQ

    For the sake of parity I think the rule should be that no more than the top 3 teams from a conference get to host. Maybe 4. If you can’t finish in the top 3 or 4 of your conference you don’t deserve to be a regional host.

    Dam it the Beavers need to get back to the Rose Bowl. Think OSU needs a goal of making it by 2022 from the university level. Maybe it will coincide with Phase 3 getting done for the mirrored double deck on both sides. Regardless, it is time to amp up the effort and get it done again at Oregon State.

    My prediction is it happens in 2031. Much later then I am hoping for. Seeing Andersen build it up and have a shot between 2019-2022 may be one of our stronger shots.

    My god did Golden St look good most of that 3rd quarter and early 4th. Turn a 6 pt lead into a 32 pt lead.

    A few weeks ago when Cleveland was rolling thru the eastern conference on the Dan Patrick show they were all in agreement that Cleveland looked the best in the playoffs and were the favorite to win it all. I laughed. Sorry. Playing Detroit, Atlanta and Toronto does not prepare a team for the finals vs the stacked west right now. First two games have shown that they aren’t even in the same stratosphere as GS

I also saw a tweet however that he would commit before his first senior game. He would be a good get and put us in a good spot for receivers in this class.

      What type of categories would you want for a forum?

      Football, Basketball, Baseball…recruiting info separate or just include it under those 3?

      Women’s sports a separate area or include under those?

      Maybe a general discussion and “other” for things like wrestling, volleyball, etc?

      Give me some ideas. This area is going to die because I’ve got nothing, so we need to move to the forums. It will be much more lively if this area disappears and we only have the forums, and people can create their own discussions.

      I would completely support a forum format. Anything that gets us back to the old IRC days is good in my book.

      Besides, I could post all over the place and watch as dumkopfs wonder what was said in response to something I posted but was blocked by an ignore button.

      Football, baseball and hoops (both genders) deserve their own. Then I would title another “Olympic Sports,” and one more for miscellaneous. I guess I would throw softball in with baseball and let people post as they see fit for that sport within that category. The same could be said of hoops. Why discriminate just because of gender? Just roll it all into one.
