25.Nov.2013 Regarding the “Jaquizz” Gaffe…

Turns out the marketing department was behind it. Yes, the same geniuses who brought you men in bras and the shark-headed Beaver have now brought you “Jaquizz Rodgers” (come on, that just looks wrong), whoever he is.

Apparently they have a gameday script which they read over the PA during timeouts and such, and they also post some of this information on the scoreboard. In the script, the name was spelled correctly in some parts but incorrectly in others. This misprint is in bold font both times, yet nobody noticed it was spelled differently than the correct version, which was only one sentence after.

Embarrassing.

If you’re going to honor a guy get his name right. Double and triple check it. There’s nothing else to say about that.

We have needed an overhaul of marketing for years. Is this the final nail in that coffin? I doubt it because nothing changes at OSU (though the higher ups are riled over this). You can take a snapshot today, put it in a time capsule, and in 20 years it’ll be the same dumbasses running the show, only a little older and a little balder.

    The document also says, “James and Jacquizz [spelled correctly] are currently playing for the Atlanta Falcons.”

    Is that true? I thought James got cut last year.

    For a department supposedly trying to uplift Beaver athletics, such a gaff is inexcusable. Any moron in the chain of presenting Rogers’ name knows it is a tricky spelling, so you take special effort to get it right…..right? But NOOOOOO …

    Maybe they should start spelling RILEY wrong….

    Anyone else notice Riley standing on the sidelines with his arms crossed and no headset on. No one within 5 yards on either side….don’t even think I saw him chomping his gum…just disconnected (maybe just that pissed….?) my group of buds have season tickets right next to the opposing side line that’s normally a blast to heckle the crap out of our competitors. To the point we usually get into some of the players heads…not so much Saturday.

    As Banker reviewed the wreckage Sunday, he couldn’t shake one pesky thought: Did the coaches fail to properly prepare their players for a desperate Washington team?

    Let me answer that for you. FUCK YES!!!!!! I made the comment after the first play why were our db’s lining up 10 yards off the line of scrimmage. If you know your opponent has one of the top rushers in the nation and a RS Frosh Qb making his first career start, one would think that you would game plan to stop Sankey first and make the Qb beat you with his arm. Now granted, we did not know who would start until just before the game. I understand that. BUT, UW coaches KNEW that if they announced earlier in the week if they announced Price was out that OSU would game plan to gang up and stop Sankey (at least that’s what a smart person would do). But the rule here still applies. Stop Sankey and you stop UW. The stats prove this theory. If an average idiot like mysefl can see this, why can’t those that are paid handsomely figure this out?

        Now I’m pissed off all over again. It shouldn’t even be an excuse who the starting quarterback is. How hard is it to switch from “the Penny” (which is OSU’s version of the 3-4-4) to the base 4-3-4, or even nickel and dime if you need to use it. They stayed in the GD Penny almost all night long. Kept getting hammered and didn’t even make an adjustment. Did you see the gaps on the OSU DL? Like 3 yards! UW didn’t even have to block the side they weren’t running to. Fucking atrocious. And when the 4th LB in the penny is actually Sean Martin, you’re good and screwed. The coaches mindset from the start should have been- no matter who the qb is, we’re gonna make UW beat us throwing the ball.

        And OT- but what I noticed from the assistant coach pay scales posted in a different thread is that the 4 lowest paid coaches on OSU’s staff are the ones who do the best job developing players and by far, recruit the most players. How fucked up is that? Read gets 260K! For what? He’s worthless as a recruiter and special teams is below average. Great value there Riley! Not.

          Hopefully, Read doesn’t get any credit for Bolden’s TD run. Kick returning was awful throughout the year. If there were holes Bolden didn’t know where to find them and he went down on first contact nine times out of ten. The TD was kind of a fluke.

          Romaine has regressed, I think that Kostol has also, but I haven’t taken the time to look at the stats. Kick coverage was ok most of the year, but I’m not paying a quarter of a million dollars for that. Riley can dismiss Read quickly at the end of the season to at least give the appearance that he cares about improvement.

            Unfortunately this might be all that’s done. We know Riley doesn’t have the huevos to take an objective look at Banker or to ask why his offense has been predictable for years now. Langsdorf needed to leave about four years ago. He needs to go somewhere like Winnipeg, because his offense needs a 12th player due to always being out-manned.

            Watch the bunker mentality take hold immediately following the CW… as opposed to the slight bunker mentality steeped in delusions of OSU sucking as a program, school and destination.

          The concept was ok, and the man himself was/is a good guy. But two things happened.
          1. He didn’t do anything. Do something like Ragnar does for the Vikings. Ride out to midfield on a tricked out chopper and chainsaw your way to a frenzied crowd.
          2. Even if your name is Randy, it’s a little inappropriate for a team called the Beavers.

        I disagree about the depth. We didn’t get to read about how Riley still fondly remembers when Autzen was built and he got to see the first CW played there… yet again. It was intimated by mentioning he remembered going to watch games at Hayward… before Autzen opened. But we didn’t get to hear the neat story about that first Autzen CW… yet again.

      What it says, is that Riley is “just happy to be here.” He doesn’t talk about winning, he talks about how fortunate he is to be part of a rivalry experience.

      The fact that it hasn’t been much of aa rivalry for the past several years doesn’t matter to him, he’s here.

      She’s just framing it up as “fans are grumbling” “they’re frustrated” “they want changes” “they’re calling for this or that coach to be fired”. It’s a way to depersonalize the question when asked directly or written about in an article so they don’t piss the person off and get moved to the back of the room. It’s how journalists ask questions, and I never seen anyone covering the Beavs do it differently, like it or not.

    From the O-Live on the defensive collapse:

    “Miscues riddled the whole performance. Beavers defenders missed assignments, tackled improperly, reacted slowly, blew coverages, communicated little. As errors mounted, players became frazzled. They dwelled on missed opportunities instead of concentrating on the next play. By the time the fourth quarter arrived, OSU faced a 48-point deficit.

    “It started snowballing on us,” defensive coordinator Mark Banker said.

    In retrospect, he said he wishes he had galvanized his hapless players on the Reser Stadium sideline. He wishes he had stressed the importance of moving forward, of not letting one mistake lead to another.”

    Why are OSU coaches always so slow to react? He wishes he had galvanized his players? Isn’t this a bit like the EWU opener, when EWU scored on virtually every possession, and OSU never expended a timeout to try and regroup, motivate, galvanize…

    Why do Riley/Banker act as if they’re giving something up by taking a timeout in those situations to try and settle their players down and refocus them, particularly when they end up leaving timeouts on the board?

    This “I should have done something” was also personified by the entire team when they lost to WSU and that punk LB hit “Jaquizz” Rodgers 15 yards out-of-bounds…players said they “thought about doing something, but didn’t.

    Then and now, the team reflects it coaching.

      This was foreseeable. All one had to do was stay after the game and watch the postgame interview with Steve Preece and Coach Riley. It was very telling at the time.
      Parapharsed from my memory:

      SP: Coach tough day today, Vernon Adams their QB had quite a day, what did you know about him prior to the game?

      Riley: Yeah, Yeah, well we didn’t know that much about him, he looked like an All American but we didn’t know that much

      3GBEAVS: Are you kidding me….I knew he was a mobile threat QB, all you had to do was look on the interwebby thing and find out about him and EWU….Coach…you’ve had all summer to do this, I did it less than a week before the game.

      SP: Coach, talk about the defense, it seemed like nothing was working?

      Riley: Gosh, I know Steve, we’d try a play and it wouldn’t work, then we’d try another play with the same results we kept trying different things and then after 6 or 7 we run out of plays.

      3GBEAVS: What?? You run out of plays….this season is not going to go well!

      Why is anyone surprised by the results of the season? Same problems, same approach, same results.

      These are guys secure in their jobs and know they have to make no effort … so they dont.

      So you get the same lip service comments after a game, again and again.

      Mike Riley may be a nice guy, and a good coach if he actually does that, but at OSU now he has clearly decided he needs to make no effort. This will continue until he retires or the AD finally gets enough backbone to dump him. I predict the former.

      Love it that there’s someone from Montana. Credit to the camps and regional teams that are available now, I guess. Montana doesn’t have high school baseball and Legion baseball is pretty much on a shoestring. Oregon signed 2 Montana players – trivia here, one of them is on the Miles City team, although he lives in (drum roll) Rosebud. The Miles City legion team plays with wooden bats – and won’t play against teams that are using aluminum bats because, 10 years ago, a pitcher died as a result of a line drive off an aluminum bat.

    Hey guys, would you like some more ammunition against the current administration? I received a letter I the mail today as a season ticket holder asking me how much I would be willing to increase my donation by when they expand the stadium. After that game? Great timing, DeCareless!

      After last Saturday’s game, perhaps they need to discuss contracting the stadium as opposed to expanding it. A larger stadium with fewer people in it looks pretty bad. Kind of like Candlestick in the late 70’s when the Giants were shitty. One game they had an announced attendance of about 800 people in a 50,000+ seat stadium.

        Completely agree. We don’t want to turn into the Marlins of college football.

        If we can’t even sell out our current capacity, why are we even considering expansion? In order to support such a venture, or gain a return, the product has to be somewhere close to the demand. How can donors feel good about doubling their investment when they are seeing little to no returns on their initial capital via empty seats and mediocre records? This is basic investment 101 that no one in the OSU athletic department seems to understand. This isn’t field of dreams. (Although, Shoeless Joe Jackson would probably help our cause at the moment)

        But.. we can’t break from Riley. It’s too expensive.

            I think a lot of people are losing sight of this. I also lived through the 28 years and am afraid we go there again. I don’t think people understand that we’re teetering on the edge of slipping into another like period as we move forward with the status quo.

            People like to bring up the win totals within the Pac since Riley has been coach as if the past justifies this status quo. Here are the Pac’s total wins/total conference wins in periods of 11 years (Riley’s tenure), five years (one complete recruiting cycle since we’ve competed for the Pac title) and three years (the length of time There is an obvious pattern in the same numbers Pollyannas want to tout as supporting their own argument.

            It looks like our wins out of conference make up a bigger percentage of our wins overall than the other schools. Maybe we should switch conferences?

            I don’t think you’re reading the numbers correctly. In X/Y, X=total wins and Y=conference wins. So X1/Y1 would be 11 years, X2/Y2 would be five years, and X3/Y3 would be three years.

            Gotcha, thought that was surprising that we would have a high % of our wins come from OOC.

            So we’ve gone from 3rd best in total wins over Riley’s tenure, to 8th place in the Pac in total wins in recent history. A little better when comparing conference wins, but still middle of the Pac.

            I’m sick of people saying you can’t get a better coach in Corvallis. Better than 8th place in the Pac? I’m willing to take my chances, if not to get some new life injected into the program.

            Another way to look at it:
            Over 11 years, two teams (USC, Nike) are better in total and conference wins with one team (SU) very close in both. And ASU, Cal and UCLA aren’t very far off.
            Over five years, five teams USC, Nike, SU, UW, UCLA) are as good or better in league with two (ASU, UA) very close. And all seven are better in total wins.
            The Pac 12 years have been what differentiate us with UA within the conference, but they pass us in total wins, and Utah starts to match our production, although they’re still off in league. But the other six teams who had previously caught or passed us at the five year mark are starting to run away from us.

            Keep in mind that only Utah and UW have not replaced their coaches within the last couple years, and UW was only five years ago. Hell, a lot of teams have gone through two (or more) coaches in the time Riley has been here, and they are still comparable over 11 years and better in a not so small sample of five years.

            Nice data, very revealing.

            Another point for the “we can’t get a good coach” gang: Arizona is far from a destination job, and they landed Rich Rodriguez who is a far superior coach than Riley.

            I for one would take a RichRod for 4 years then have him move on after building the program just like I would have happily taken Jim Harbaugh for 4 years. Guys like that build your program up to a currently unattainable level, raising expectations and leaving a legacy of winning and national attention. I’d take that risk over guaranteed mediocrity all day.

            the “most wins since 2000” is the stat Parker goes to routinely to defend the status quo. of course, that number conveniently includes Erickson’s 2000 squad. I think the 5 year span is the most telling: in that OSU beats only Cal and WSU. That seems about right in sizing up relative strengths.

            If we’re going to go to 2000, we have to throw out the 2002 season. That’s the only season that changes the numbers in any way, and that’s because SU lost Willingham and Picked up Teevens… and… *cough*… ahem… Banker.

            If we’re going to tout this coaching staff’s accomplishments over that period, we can’t overlook the suck performed by Banker in 2002.

            I saw an article on O-live earlier in the week talking about how much money Helfrich lost in missed bonuses with his loss to Arizona last week. They also mentioned he missed out on adding an extra year to his contract. The stipulation was something like 11 wins, including a BCS bowl win are required to receive the extra year.

            Compare that to Riley, who merely needs to get to 6 wins, regardless of Bowl win/loss. Then look at next year’s schedule, where OSU plays Portland State, SDSU and Hawaii again. 3 gimmes, meaning he would only need 3 conference wins the rest of the year to get an extra year tacked on. There’s another clause in the contract for his assistants where they’ll receive bonuses for bowl appearances. (Not bowl wins)

            Check out the win % for games up to win #6 vs after win #6, since 2007, when that contract began. This used to be a team that played well at the end of the season, but after going through the crappy 2010/2011 years, they’ve declined seriously after win #6.

            2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013
            Up to win #6 60% 67% 67% 42% 25% 100% 86%
            After win #6 100% 75% 100% n/a n/a 43% 0%

            While I like the point you make that Riley needs few conference wins, you’re forgetting the lessons of Sac State and EWU; there are no non-conference gimmes with this coaching staff.

            The 2009 % after win #6 is wrong. It should be 50% by the way you’re counting games. But since the bowl game itself is meaningless, that only points toward overall preparedness. One could argue that bowl wins and losses shouldn’t count in this argument.

            You’re right, 2009 should have shown 50% for the win % after #6. Which further supports the decline in production after win #6. There’s no incentive to win late in the season anymore. (unless win #6 hasn’t been reached to that point)

            What is the end date on Riley’s current deal anyway? I know in 2007 he was extended to 2012, but then I think he got another 3 year extension. With the 2 most recent seasons netting 6+ wins, does that keep him on board through 2017? or is it longer?

            There’s no escaping this contract.

            Just read on Wiki that he signed the 3 year extension in 2009, which extended his current deal through 2019. Since that time, there have been 3 total 6+ win seasons, so does that mean he’s technically extended through 2022? That’s crazy! I had no idea it went out that far already.

            I would probably break it down in gross totals and emphasize ranked opponents as well. That would go this way:
            2007: 3-0, 0-0
            2008: 3-1, 1-1
            2009: 2-2, 0-2
            2010: n/a
            2011: n/a
            2012: 3-4, 0-3
            2013: 0-4, 0-2

            Total: 8-11, 2-8

            Compare that to the combined records of 30-11, 4-4 to get to six wins in those five years. And further consider that of our four wins over ranked teams only 2008 USC remained ranked at the end of the season… with nobody else we beat climbing into the rankings in those years.

            Notes on that last bit: Using the AP poll here. Nikegon 2007 was ranked in both the AP and Coaches to end the season… mysteriously ahead of our #25 in the AP and our unranked in the Coaches despite us beating them and having the same record after both winning bowl games. Cal 2008 (our sixth win that year) did sneak into the final Coaches poll, and UCLA 2012 had a final BCS ranking despite none in the AP or Coaches. Those and USC 2008 are our only wins in the last seven seasons over teams who held any kind of final rankings.

            Extra note: North Dakota State got two votes in the final AP ranking. Ha!
