Quite the coup-détat!

I view this as bullish for Riley getting canned and/or retiring. Bearish for any shot at a Rose Bowl (Sark was much easier to beat, and Riley couldn’t do that).

Oregon should watch out, too. Washington could be the next dynasty in the PNW. Within two years, if not sooner, I expect that gap to close significantly.

Washington fans can  now dream big. It must be nice.

      Haha.

      I think it can happen. With enough pressure. The team is supposed to be good next year, so if he under performs again fans will be calling for his head louder than right now. He might retire at that point…that is the more likely scenario.

    Spot on, and very close to a post I made a few days ago.

    But if Washington is the big winner here, USC is the equally big loser. What could they possibly have been thinking? Mind boggling. Sarkisian is strikingly similar to Kiffin. Great recruiter who finds a way to get incredibly mediocre results out of great talent. The final product is much less than the sum of the parts.

    It’s really depressing to see the Pac-12 landscape actively changing around us while we sit on our hands. The talent gap between us and the rest of the league is expanding at an exponential pace and we are quickly going to be left behind.

    Obviously, it’s going to take a last place finish next year to even begin to put the wheels in motion for a change but I would rather sacrifice one year and force a change than wait until 2016 to MAYBE have BDC exit via termination or resignation. Not to mention, if we go to a bowl this year we extend RIley to 2021.

    Peterson moves into an NFL-caliber stadium, a major metro area, great history of success in big games…I think he’ll recruit well. If he can beat the Ducks in Autzen and Bosie with his recruits to BSU, what will he do at UW?

    If the upperclassmen return, and there are no significant injury problems to use as excuses; than Riley et al will be all out of excuses in 2014. A continuing trend downward may encourage him to take the quiet way out and retire as Angry suggests above.

        Well, there is a possibility if we have a big enough donor who’s upset enough to cut a buyout check (or at least the vast majority of it).

        $750,000 x 3 years
        $500,000 x the remainder

        $4,250,000 if we don’t get a bowl game this year, $4,750,000 if we do. That’s a lot of risk for only a potential reward.

        I think that all things considered, the better option is shit-canning Danny, Cav and Read, hiring some guys who can coach, recruit and inject a ‘we can win’ attitude into the program, and spend whatever money we get on the new valley center upgrade. If we get a ‘coach in waiting’ offensive coordinator and we start playing well, I think donations would increase to the point where we could find somebody willing to pay that buyout to keep a hotshot OC around, just as Oregon did.

    My hat’s off to Mr. Petersen for turning down So Cal, UCLA and $4M for the NW, UW and $?.

    Actually I was wondering if he was starting to lose his touch the way Boise played this year but every really good program has their off years so their performance was probably nothing more than that.

    I sure don’t like the direction the OSU program is headed. Make that the direction of the OSU athletic department in general is headed.

    Luck of the Beaver fans, eh?

    I see there are about 2,500 tickets on Stubhub to tomorrow’s Pac-12 championship game in Tempe. Unbelievable. Remember last year’s Stanford stadium being half empty?
    It would be ASU’s 3rd Rose Bowl appearance all time and their first in 17 years.
    I know at this year’s Beaver game the stadium was only about 2/3 full. They did sell out their game with the Badgers however.
    I’m just surprised there hasn’t been more support for Pac champ games, even in Autzen a few years ago against UCLA was weak.

    Beavs won’t be getting any better under Riley and he’s not going anywhere so here’s to hoping that the competition gets worse.

    If no bowl . . . does the $500,000 that was designated to Riley to play in a bowl in 2013 actually exist? to be applied elsewhere? or is it simply an IOU?

    Montana’s Will Dissly commited to Boise State the day b4 Peterson announced he was going to Washington. Dissly played at Bozeman High School and was the Montana’s Gatorade poy.

    Dissly recorded 64 tackles, 12 for a loss, with 9.5 sacks and 32 quarterback hurries. He also caught 54 passes for 917 yards and 12 touchdowns. A First Team All-State selection on both offense and defense, Dissly was the Class AA co-Defensive MVP as a junior.

    I don’t know if the beavs ever considered him.

    PORTLAND PRE-GAME: As part of the atmosphere surrounding the game, the OSU Alumni Association, OSU Athletics and Our Beaver Nation have scheduled a pre-game event and transportation to make attendance easier and the night more enjoyable for fans. There will be a pre-game meet-up at Leisure Public House (8002 N Lombard Street) beginning at 4 p.m. featuring an appearance from head coach Scott Rueck and round trip bus transportation is also available to and from Portland, picking up and dropping off at Gill Coliseum.

    So a new coach is going to cost at least 1 million more, based on recent coaching hires. Also assistant coaches salaries would likely increase as well.

    Where does OSU get this money to pay? The budget for the Ath dept is already in the red and borrows from the university general fund.

      The AD does not borrow from the general fund. Unlike Nikegon’s accounting which allows for the general operating fund to subsidize the AD to the tune of $5m annually (if they did their accounting the same way OSU does), the OSU AD is a budgeted operation. If they’re long, they carry a balance. If they’re short they need to borrow (not be granted) money from an independent fund which acts as an endowment.

    look on the bright side, Angry Beaver Nation, at least Peterson won’t be on the sideline when Boise state returns to Corvallis in a couple of years. Seeing and talking to Husky fans today reminds me of what it was like in January 1999 when I was driving home from the airport and heard on the sports news channel that Dennis Erickson had been hired by Oregon State. Those were the days. sigh. Every team in the conference, with the exception of Oregon, has upgraded at coach with their last hire at head coach. Riley’s tenure is likely to get extended, to an extent, due to the zero sum dynamic; all these new coaches can’t bring in 6-9 conference wins a year. Some of these hires will prove a bust; my bets: Helfrich, Dykes, Sarkisian, Rodriguez.

    Boy, did BDC ever screw up the original Reser expansion plans. Whole stadium including west side was supposed to be done for the 2007 or 2008 season by the very latest. Now all of a sudden it won’t even start in this decade. Pretty pathetic leadership.

    http://www.gazettetimes.com/reser-stadium-project-gets-under-way/article_33c5e464-41c6-5597-9fbc-32ec05cde979.html

    “If all goes according to plan, by 2007 or 2008 the Beavers will have a stadium to rival any other facility in the Pacific-10 Conference.

    “We want to make the stadium look like it’s supposed to look,” De Carolis said. “You only do a stadium once every 50 or 75 years so you want to do it right. Our goal is to finish the whole thing.

    “Ideally it could be a four-year project if the funding is all there. It would be more than four years if you did the other aspects of it, like finishing off the expanded Valley Football Center. But a four-year project could get you a whole new stadium.”

    Construction will be completed in segments so the Beavers can continue to play at Reser, which has undergone numerous piecemeal expansions and renovations since it opened in 1953 with 28,000 seats. Work on the first phase – a new 21,000-seat east grandstand with a club level and 20 luxury suites, costing about $80 million – will start immediately after the Nov. 20, 2004, Civil War game against Oregon.

    The $30 million second phase will renovate the end zones and Valley Football Center for the 2006 season. The $80 million third phase will completely overhaul and expand the existing west grandstand for the 2007 or 2008 season.”

    My thoughts on Petersen:

    The Pac-12 isn’t the Mountain West or the WAC. Dirk Koetter went 20-5 his last two seasons, before going 40-34 for ASU. Dan Hawkins took over and went 53-11 for BSU…19-39 for Colorado.

    You can’t just get up for the 1-2 big games you play every year, you’ve got to be ready for a brawl nearly every week in the Pac-12. I don’t get inking him in for 10+ wins like some people seem to be doing.

      I see him getting 9-3 many years and 8-4 once in awhile. Don’t think he ever goes below 7-5. After a couple years he could see 10 wins. Certainly before OSU does again. Unlike Riley who can go as low as 3-9, I think it is safe to say Petersen never does worse than 7-5. They will be knocking on the door and he can definitely knock off Helfrich if Oregon doesn’t bring very close to their A game. Riley on the other hand is likely to be facing 7 straight Civil War defeats by this time next year. We will be below both programs now until BDC is gone.

      We’ve seen Riley distracted and lacking focus before, when his Dad was dying and his daughter became a Mom. After that he went through a phase where he seemed more involved….hired Brennan, Brasfield, Perry, and Bray; reduced the press availability of players, took over play calling, and added music for practices. I think most of those moves came after the personal distractions.

      I agree that he hasn’t looked energetic (even for him) and may possibly be facing some personal issues of which we aren’t aware. But, something happened between the UW fiasco and the CW. When he made the statement that “we’re not going to play like that again” it may have been a true sign of a spark.

      For me, a few questions remain: 1) can he keep that spark with any consistency? 2) will that spark cause him to make changes to his staff? 3) even with the spark, does he have the ABILITY to manage the clock and adjust (in real time) to game situations. Based on past observations I’ll be pleasantly surprised if clearly positive answers come to even one of those questions.

      AND: After the one decent article, Lindsay fades back to her old ways. Says, “If you asked Riley, he would tell you offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf is one of those bright, young minds.”

I’m going to be surprised with anything more than mediocrity for as long as this staff hangs around. This might be the straw that broke my back. I grew up in 28 years of losing, attending so many empty games. But we never quit like we do now. We had a cool classic pair of mascots. At this point I feel like rooting for the huskies. I forget how bad they can be, but Peterson I like, and besides, the ducks were always the most classless I’ve ever known. So huskies hate the ducks too, that’s neat.

    in case you missed it, Sark was on Gameday this morning and said SC is going to the up tempo pistol style of play next year. So, that makes Stanford and Riley the last hold outs for the old pro style. Curiously, Sarkisian added a caveat, that “so long as the rules now in place dictate” this style of play that’s what he’s going with.

        Reading between the lines. Recruited by Rod Perry. When he gets to Corvallis he’ll realize that there’s no room in Riley’s complicated playbook for a dual threat QB and will be converted to CB where Perry turn him into a 1st team PAC12 CB.

          Doubt it. His highlights are all him throwing.

          He only had 238 rushing yards with 3 TDs compared to 3477 yards passing and 43 TD 3 INTs. Completed 60.8% of his passes.

    A assistant hire that OSU could do is to pick up the senior back up OL guy at Stanford. The one with the whiteboard and off the chart football iq. He would be an awesome pickup, bring some quick thinking brains to the staff, and watch some serious in game adjustments happen. That guy is sharp.

    I’ll repost this idea later so as not to get buried by today’s basketball game. HA! Another thought I had, maybe Riley needs to look into some PEDs for coaches. You know, something that’s banned for Olympic athletes because it really increases focus. Then maybe he won’t be laughing with a shit grin while we keep getting our asses handed to us via the same repetitive schemes,

    That big snowball fight at UO yesterday was not at all what people thought. The media portrayed these people as just having fun. The truth of the ordeal is in this video, that is soon to be viral. Truly sickening indeed. Many UO players were involved.

      They should add this to their promotion video with the skateboarding and rock climbing.

    Sparty taking it to tOSU, 17-0 in the 2nd Q. Largest deficit of the season for tOSU.

    Miller with a 48 yard run gets the buckeye offense going and they tie it up in the 3rd Q at 17. Tree all over ASU, 38-14 in the 4th.

          I bow down to your napkin-ness. Happy for Sparty as they got screwed out of the Rose Bowl a couple years ago. What sucks is now the F’ing SEC can win it all again.

      I called it weeks ago when Ducky tried to troll after SU’s loss to SCum. It wasn’t hard to see at that point.

    message to Lindsay Schnell (since we know you monitor this site): so if Wyoming can attract the top coach in IAA football from North Dakota State, do you think a place like Oregon State would be attractive? In the Pac 12? (I’ve tried to find the dollar value and couldn’t but my guess is that it’s less than a mission/yr.) Heck, I’m wondering if the coach at Eastern Washington would be a candidate? At least his team was ready to play in late August. The Schnell/Feldman argument that Riley is the one and only coach appropriate for Corvallis is so fraudulent as a logic model that I’m stunned legitimate journalists would propagate it. I’ve concluded this is the biggest problem for those of us who take a “critical view of Oregon State athletics” face. Not only are the mainstreamers NOT doing their job, they take issue with those who do this as an avocation.

    message to Ken Goe: in answer to your question, what good was gained by expanding the Pac from 10 to 12? — Utah and Colorado provided half of Oregon State’s conference win total. That’s a start.

    Someone ask Terron Ward why he feels like such an entitled little prick that he can continuously harass his neighbors with music and loud out of control parties. Second special response notice given last night, and I’m sure no fucks given by him either.
