    Isn’t it amazing how Riley’s become a serial career-killer ever since going Corn?

    Hank Hughes (Defensive Line Coach) – fired
    Mark Banker (Defensive Coordinator…technically) – sacked
    Bruce Read (Speshul Teams Coach) – booted
    Shawn Eichorst (Athletic Directing Moron) – directed out the door

    I bet Cav and Langs are next. It’s like a horror flick with people falling one by one, as the murderer stares blankly off into the distance chewing his gum.

    Golly!

        How could they not understand that going in to it? I would guess these numbnuts are getting decent severance. Like I said before, one of the most bizarre miracles of the modern college football era. Riley goes from the hot seat at OSU to a job with Nebraska.

          I doubt it was perceived that way outside of OSU. Everyone else thought Riley was an amazing coach because he had some winning seasons at OSU. They figured he could be at the Nick Saban level at school like Nebraska. Fools.

      Meh… very few could defend their status beyond being a position coach. We’re seeing the same thing now. I don’t know why anyone would get on GA for asking Coach K to step up but understanding when he gets shot down. I believe Coach K can be a great DC. He doesn’t think he’s ready. I defer to him. But you have to ask.

      However, some head coaches lose a great DC then turn to their DB newbie and say, “Are you ready?” And I’m loathe to respect that DB newbie if he were to accept that challenge unprepared.

      But I can’t blame him for taking advantage of the situation. Can I?

      There are position coaches who are born head coaches. There are head coaches who are born coordinators. There are coordinators who are born position coaches.

      We’ve seen all of them in the last five years.

    OT. Jordan Poyer off to an impressive start:


    The Oregonian/OregonLive

    Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer is leading a revival of the defense and being mentioned as one of the best free agent signings in 2017.

    The former Oregon State star is tied for the team lead in sacks with two, is third in tackles with 14 and has one of the team’s two interceptions. Poyer six passes defended is second in the NFL and he posted 11 tackles (seven solo), one sack and three passes defensed in the 9-3 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. ”

    And has a 4-year, $13M contract…

      To put that into perspective: he is the #1 DB in the NFL for fantasy points scored through two weeks. IDP leagues, in which you select individual defensive players, award points for tackles, sacks, forced fumbles, interceptions, etc.

      And that doesn’t even reward you for TFL or passes defensed! These are incredibly impressive numbers.

    NiceBeaver had a comment in the last thread about CTE and the potential relationship to steroid use.

    I think that even if steroids don’t have a direct connection to CTE, they have an indirect connection in that they’re making players bigger, faster, and stronger; and thus making their tackles and hits more brutal. I think a serious crackdown on steroids would be a huge win for player safety, even without a direct link to CTE or other health issues.

    Related: I talked to a guy whose HS buddy went to USC a few years back. He said the vast majority of the team was juicing, and the only guys who weren’t were the handful of guys that were just so strong/athletic that they didn’t need to. This is USC, mind you, where you don’t get an offer if you’re not an elite athlete. Bottom line: everyone is doing it.

    “College Coaches and Administrators United Against Rileyitis… the great killer of careers”

    College coaches all across America on Saturday, September 23, will chew gum the entire game to eradicate Rileyitis. Rileyitis results in an abrupt ending to an otherwise promising or in many cases entirely mediocre college coaching career. Side effects include being stranded in the middle of no where with little or no opportunity. Early symptoms are being thrown overboard or under a bus.

          I still think he’ll prove you wrong. Nobody can say all the right things like he does without believing them in some way. The mystifying part is the disconnect between what he says and what happens on the field.

          If the team even remotely walks the talk, they will look like the just-above-.500 team we have realistic expectations to see.

          They have yet to do this.

    Watching the Boise state and Virginia game, it feels like every team aside from OSU can find a QB that can make the quick decisions and throws. How can the OSU coaches be so ineffective in noticing QB talent?

    We’ve wasted scholarships on Blount, Moran, and maybe even Willard now. It looks like Petra’s is the first recruit that might be the real deal (if he keeps his pledge and the play calling isn’t atrocious).

    I also wonder if anyone is putting pressure on GA and his staff. I wish reporters would call out the difference between what GA Said he was gonna do (run more) and what actually happened (pass more) and the disconnect between that in all 4 games. Nobody’s willing to put their neck on the line.

      The same thought went through my mind…. even Cozart Boise States backup who transferred as a grad transfer from Kansas and knew he was going as a back up sure looked like he would be a sure starter at OSU. Quick delivery, burns people with his legs, and knows what he is going to do in a given situation…. what did Gary say he looked for in a qb “someone who could beat the opponent with arm legs and mind….. he is sitting on the blue turf as a back up.

      You got a link on where/when CGA said “he was gonna do (run more)”?
      Probably not because this is what he said at the beginning of the season:
      Andersen identified two areas where the Beavers must improve dramatically in order to exceed outside expectations — run defense and passing offense.
      “If we don’t see progress in both of those places, we’ll see the same results,” Andersen said.

        On the offense’s development:

        “We still want to be a 60-40 team (running the ball versus throwing the ball)”

        https://articles.oregonlive.com/beavers/index.ssf/2017/08/gary_andersen_calls_for_oregon.amp

        • With a full complement of able running backs, Andersen believes the run game will continue to be the Beavers’ bread-and butter.

        “We always want to be 60-40 to the run, but that’s gauged to the defenses,” the OSU mentor says.

        http://portlandtribune.com/pt/12-sports/371772-255147-biggest-challenge-for-osus-andersen

        I guess he hasn’t actually said I’ going to run it 60/40 but he says in his ideal is that and that running is his staple.
        IMO he needs to stop worrying about the explosive plays and just have the offense focus on moving the chains and what they JNOW how to do. Developing the passing game as he goes along.

            Against a non-spread team, those defenders are not “extra.” Eight in the box means there’s one extra. It has nothing to do with what kind of offense you run. If he’s saying they put nine in the box, then I don’t see what he sees.

        However, I believe we discarded a loose string that might be unraveling the whole cloth.

        “We’d like to still be run-heavy, but we want to have more explosive plays, and you get those primarily from the throw game.

        “But we have some big-time playmakers at the wideouts. And if we throw like we did (in Friday’s scrimmage), it might go 60-40 the other way.”

        That failure is apparent now.

So far, he’s “uninvited” Steoh Curry from visiting the White House (even though Curry declined the invite first) and now he says “get that son of a bitch off the field” referring to Colin Kapernick. It was at a rally in Alabama, for his national anthem protests (is he even playing for anybody?)

    There must be more important news happening that he’s trying to distract the fake news from covering.

        It’s a legal hit because the QB is not giving himself up. He’s a runner, going down in a forward direction and fighting for yards. Thus he is not a defenseless player, thus the targeting rules (leading with the crown of the helmet; leaving your feet) don’t apply. To be a defenseless player he would need to be sliding, feet first.

        That said, it still looks a little dirty to me. Like they (successfully) took advantage of an opportunity to lay a big hit on him.

          It’s like every time I switch to a college football game, I get to see a highlight where the guy they’re praising is doing something illegal. And then I get to watch the refs run from out of picture to the right of my screen to spot the ball a yard beyond where it landed.

            In case you’re wondering, it is always from the right of screen. I thought it would be equally bad from both sides. But, albeit an unofficial tally, it turns out refs mark it a yard to the left as the TV views the field. I first noticed this in the Wazzu game two years ago. They got some egregious spots.

      As soon as you think someone is a push-over, they’ll beat you 13-7 at home when they have zero credibility as a team. And they’ll toss your RB into the wall… twenty yards out of bounds… on your home field.

      And you’ll say something about 28 years.

    Imagine AFA in red instead of blue… and wit much better players.

    NCAA football would hate Troy Calhoun at Nebby.

    I have to give angry credit on that call. I wanted Fleck as our coach. He wanted Calhoun. I think both would have us up and running right now relatively speaking. I still think stealing Fleck at that time would not have been a reach.

    But I can imagine many of my responses to his verbology.

        It’s considered a part of the end zone. So a runner who extends to the pylon but never actually puts the ball in the end zone wil get a TD.

        I’m assuming the rule would be that the runner has already established possession within the field of play before touching the pylon. Just touching the pylon like that receiver did does not establish possession.

    I feel much better about the Civil War after watching the Duck game. I think, as it stands right now, OSU can compete on a good day. The only part holding the “win” part back is the horrendous play-calling. OSU certainly has more offensive weapons available than the Sun Devils, but it is a matter of using them effectively to keep the chains moving, which the coaches miserably fail to do. Cut the toughness shit and start learning some X’s and O’s.

    Ducks defense was on the field for 38 minutes tonight, but the offense kept the team in it by answering ASU when down 17.

          I think there is a question of context and relativism. If they are all (or most) “big plays,” are they really “big plays,” anymore, or is the game being played poorly?

          I didn’t see the, so I don’t know if there was some well played defense, or it was matador defense with long offensive plays?

          But I think the notion of lots of big plays and (often) poorly played defense is becoming a viewing problem for NCAA football and it is making it boring. If the WWF-quality refereeing we saw in the CWS becomes common to NCAA football – and some might say it already it is – it becomes even less watchable.

    Some fall ball notes from the GT……………

    “OSU finished the 2017 season 56-6 overall, matching Texas’ 1975 team for the fourth-best winning percentage of the CWS era (1950-present). But the Beavers suffered their first two-game losing streak of the year in Omaha, falling to eventual-champion LSU in the bracket finals.”

    LSU won it all? Crackpot reporting there GT

    “Right-handed pitcher Drew Rasmussen, who was drafted 31st overall by the Tampa Bay Rays but did not sign, will miss the upcoming season following a second Tommy John surgery.”

    How in the fuck does that happen that quickly? Poor rehab? Failed surgery? Shitty doctor? I’d be asking some serious questions.

        And they’re still 3-1 correct? Taggert’s at least won a road game?

        Until Andersen and McLovin establish a consistent ground game and quit turning the ball over, and the D has a chance to respond and improve, there’s no point in the Duck’s status, whatever it is.

    Does anyone know of a work around when those hacks at oregonlive close down your ip address….I love sticking it to some duck fans but clownzano had olive shut me down because I called him out on the dolphinII Strip Club sponsoring his radio show….if anyone knows a work around, let me know…..I appreciate it. Clownzano is pretty thin skinned when especially when he knows he’s wrong and rather than admit it, he took the pussy way out…I’m guessing the dolphinII is still a sponsor of his radio show….I stopped listening to the hypocrite jerk after he went on his multiple rants about Luke Heimlich….

      I honestly believe we’ll see fewer passes. Luton was brought in because the coaches felt they had to have a downfield passing threat for the offense to be successful. If they thought DG could be the guy, they would have just stuck with DG and not reached on Luton.

    One of the details i noticed in last night’s ASU win was they let the play clock run till there were only a few seconds left on nearly every play. Because of this, they really controlled tim of possession, while also giving their defense plenty of rest between series.
    All year I’ve thought OSU needed to slow it down as well, but instead they opt to use some no huddle, hurry up offense, which has beem giving their opponents extra oppotunities to run up the score in the 2nd half.
    Curious if the tempo changes with Garretson

      Funny you mention that. My limited observation was the opposite, in the final five or six minutes of the game I watched ASU snap with 12-17 seconds still on the clock. I thought about that when nike u had the ball with less than 30 seconds remaining; could have already been over.

      As for OSU, I’ve noticed some good clock usage……and some bad. Come to think of it, most of the good may have been recollections from last season.

    “You also saw the Bobcats use more two- and three-back sets, and Murray lined up under center in various short-yard situations.” Montana State adjustment after a bye week and then getting a Big Sky win over North Dakota.

    And this: “If you were to ask me who do I want to be in a perfect world: Getting in ‘21’ personnel (two backs and a tight end) and pound people and take their souls and have fun doing that,” Choate said. “But that’s probably not who we are right now.” Nothing about big boy pants.

        2) When asked about Noah’s role, the answer was basically, “check with Kevin”.
        3) Remarks about how the team will never be the same (players AND coaches) after the season is complete.

          Probably a sign of him just finishing lunch.If he had a toothpick, he might have flicked a pork chop out of his teeth.

          It’s a lot of coach speak. The two parts I’m concerned about are when he was talking about not asking players to do things they can’t do and when he was talking run/pass balance in the end. It’s as if he thinks passing is the cornerstone of the O’s foundation. He’s said previously that we have to pass to set up the run (that’s not Groundhog Day). It’s as if he’s saying if we can’t pass, then we can’t run?

          I understand an averse reaction to his time at Wiscy. If you drop back to pass more than 15 times, you’re a loose cannon. But no team needs to drop back more than 30 times per game (unless that is their only mode of operation, like Wazzu) to win football on any level. Yes, you have to be efficient and make good decisions and get some decent production out of that side of your O. But we also have to run the ball with our backs 35+ times, or we’re never going to be efficient in the passing game.

          Maybe DG’s arm limits what our coaches think might be asking too much of him, and we luck into some Nall ball?

    Eggers up with a piece on GA’s resolve (he says he’ll continue to fight my ass off).

    GA, “I want to see us play disciplined football,” he says. “That’s on the damn coaches. We have to be more disciplined. We have to work our asses off not to have those big swings that come our way.”

    –Not looking good for Evans to play this season.
    –GA acknowledges that the team “will rally around” Garretson; is this a recognition on the part of GA that the team views DG as a more deserving QB? I think not.

        Tim Cook – now on Jacksonville’s practice squad. I know, Jacksonville, practice squad. But imo, Andersen completely screwed over Tim Cook even after TC played really well in a game (?) when Nall was injured. I started doubting Andersen about then – Cook not only didn’t play much, he rarely played at all after that game. Perhaps Andersen didn’t notice because he isn’t involved in the offense, in which case he shouldn’t be getting paid for being the head coach.

            So on one hand it’s encouraging, whoever found and recruited Cook did a nice job. I can also understand not wanting to disrupt the team too much since Nall is the clear #1 and AP is no joke either. But just like this year there has to be a way to get your best players the ball, and putting more than one of them on the field at a time seems like the obvious move.

    “McClatcher’s loss is a big blow to Washington’s offense, which has sputtered at times in the Huskies’ first three victories before relying on a heavy dose of running back Myles Gaskin to dispatch the Buffaloes on Saturday.”

      Gaskin unlikely to find much resistance getting to the second level this Saturday…McClatcher’s loss likely more important later in the season against stouter defenses.

      It’s such a big loss to the Huskies’ offense that it caused the spread to drop by 0.5 points! Down to 26.5 now.

    Osu is so worried about poor attendance this weekend, they’re offering free tuition to 1 ramdom lucky student if they’re attending the game.
    That’s an expensive marketing strategy.

    BASEBALL:
    D1 out with their top programs rankings, Beavs #8 in the nation, on top of the PAC. Whoreton’s group slips 20 places since 2015, ranks #46 nationwide, sixth in the PAC.

    Open scrimmage at Goss, 6pm Tuesday.

    NOTE: The D1 rankings are not a projection for the 2018 season, they are overall program rankings, “… taking into consideration recent history, coaching staff quality, facilities, scholarship/financial aid situation, conference dynamics, and recruiting and player development proficiency.”
    Their analysis is behind a paywall but the list of rankings is not.

      If anyone goes to the scrimmage, the guys to watch are the freshman. Two guys should be able to contribute immediately. Abel and McMahon.

    There’s one outlier, and it makes zero sense. It should be worse than the other numbers, but it’s not. I guess that speaks to how close this team is to being good, versus them being what they have been so far.

      Yards per play?
      YPG/YPP= leads to the deduction that OSU averages 5 more offensive plays per game than UW, shouldn’t be a surprise, but was to me.

      Losing the TO battle so poorly puts some of this into perspective; that, and special teams being such a poor “weapon”.

        Our red zone offense says, “This is team who can beat you down and steal your soul and have fun running the ball.”

        The rest of our numbers say, “This is a team with a bunch of headless chickens running around.”

          It tells me we should be doing what we do in the red zone over the rest of the field. I wonder if it’s because the back end throws are removed as options, so we get better play calling and more executable plays for our personnel.

          It also helps that the opposition has to respect our run game on a short field, whether we’re paying attention to that part of our game or not. No D can give up a decent run in the red zone and win that specific outcome. And having the backs we do makes them have to crowd the box. Even a two second mesh keeps the backers up on the line in that situation.

          So… remove the back end throws, make the D respect your run game and take advantage of a tighter D with easier angles.

      Makes sense to me. It feels like we’re very stingy on 1st and 2nd down, only to give up a big play on 3rd down from a blown assignment or missed tackle. In-opprotune penalties as well.

    OT: And the genius Mike Leach…”To me it’s not real clear what’s being protested – I haven’t heard a clear articulation of what’s protested or objected to.”

    I thought he was supposed to be “well read”–or should it be “well red”?

      He hasn’t shaved his ears in a while. So he may not have heard anything in the past three years.

    So you mean to tell me Adidas is the only shoe/apparel company that’s been paying players under the table to steer them towards soecific schools, so they can promote the brand and then get future endorsement deals with their company?
    Maybe we should take a closer look at the schools in the PK-80 tournament?

      I’m sure Nike does the same thing. I know that Judson the Oregon football recuirt said Nike was letting him design recuriting ideas for them. I’m sure its all on the up and up, right!?

        The more I read about this, the more it looks like it involves Nike and UnderArmor schools as well. Adidas is the only company so far to have a corporate figure (head of marketing) named as providing money to steer student athletes, but there are phone calls where it is mentioned he was providing that money to compete with money being sent by an unnamed rival apparel company,
        This whole thing sounds pretty deeply seeded. Not a huge surprise, however. Basically, I think we can all just assume that everything related to the sports world is corrupt at some level.

        Adidas has been doing it longer. But Nike is the big player in HS player pay-offs. If they don’t get snagged in this to a major level, I’d say it’s not because they’re good at hiding it, because they’re not. If they don’t get investigated or end up with all the same penalties Adidas will face after all investigations are done, it will be because someone is a snitch or was tipped off.
