28.Mar.2012 Riley-ism “Deal” Rubbing Off on Media, Fans, etc.

Over the past three years, I've seen a lot of fans and media using the word "deal" in their comments, reporting, etc.

Today Cliff Kirkpatrick fell victim: http://cliffkirkpatrick.mvourtown.com/2012/03/28/spring-preview-lb/

"That’s a common deal for all teams."

We use it here as a joke, calling his failures a "neat deal", but fans and media have been using it in droves and in a serious manner. It's my duty to make people aware that they're repeating the coach's Mayberry lingo, and it's highly annoying. Job done. Carry on.

    The next annoying word use to tackle is when people say, like, irony, when they are actually talking about coincidence.

    You know, like, what’s the deal with that?

    It’s obvious angry that you don’t watch much if any NASCAR racing where “it’s one of them racing deals” is heard at least once an hour.

    And yes, I’ve been known to watch.

    It’s just one of them deals.

      Ugh! While I appreciate Fox’s enthusiasm for racing, their team has their own stale speech gadgets they use race and season in and out. They are certainly a grinding annoyance to put up with for the 12 or so races they do.

      Dale and Kyle are the best. I also like Brad Daugherty, but he’s such an outlier when he’s sitting there with Musberger and Brewer. The best of times were in the late 80’s and all through the 90’s when Benny and Ned were calling races together.

      Hey, if you want truly good race analysis, F1 coverage on Speed is excellent. And Indycar on Versus is better than average. I just wish the TNT crew had more and better races for NASCAR. I’m tired of watching Fox and ESPN cover their favorite 10 drivers and all the pre-race story lines they stick to.

      On top of it all, those two networks put these yahoos on the screen to just babble about nothing all race? ESPN has an excuse. They have guys who know nothing about the sport (except for Daugherty). What’s Fox’s excuse? They’re a three hour commercial for about five sponsors. That’s it. And they constantly praise NASCAR as the end/be all, at the expense of better racing leagues (F1) no less… especially DW and his obvious open-wheel envy.

      There’s a reason NASCAR has fallen off in both fans and sponsorships, and it’s not the economy. It’s the constant bungling exposure their major network partners are providing. If you’re not one of the drivers for which these piss-poor announcers have a bias, why would you think you deserved a sponsor? What sponsor would want you?

      Meanwhile… one month until Monaco. And I’m kinda excited to see COTA in November. I hear it’s on schedule for completion, and it will be very very nice.

        I started to be an F1 fan some years back but the technology was at such a high level that once the grid was set for the race that was it, no sense it watching the race. I don’t watch much IndyCar but agree that the versus crew does a very good job. My favorite series was IMSA in the 90’s. Fast cool prototypes. The CART guys didn’t like it that a IMSA car had the track record at PIR and not them. Sometimes I think that’s why they reconfigured the track. COTA–Central Ohio Transit Authority?? Is you real job a city planner?

          Circuit of the Americas… http://circuitoftheamericas.com/

          While I somewhat agree about the specs making the previous seasons un-fun for racing, this year has a different feel. Last year was interesting with the whole exhaust situation. This year, they have to exhaust vertically. And Pirelli has softened the rubber, so pit strategy comes into play a lot more this year.

          While tech makes a difference in qualifying, the pole has yet to win this year. McLaren won the front grid for both races thus far, but the pole (Hamilton both times) has yet to do better than third. Melbourne was a McLaren/Red Bull top four race with those teams all coming within 4.5 seconds of each other. But Malaysia opened up the field.

          And it’s not like NASCAR isn’t dominated by four teams anyway. They’re just allowed to have more than two drivers per team. I really do like the success Stewart has had with his new team, if only to stick it in DW’s face for the fun of it. Dude just hates Tony for whatever reason.

          Maybe that’s changed? I don’t know. I mute Fox and listen to MRN radio.

            Thanks, maybe I’ll give F1 another chance. DW has had to warm up to Stewart, too many 14 fans out there. I’ve always been a Roush fan partly because of his road racing start and partly because the NASCAR establishment doesn’t like him. MRN > FOX.

    At least I haven’t seen “neat deal” in print yet. Maybe “Rileyism” is a contagious disease in the greater Corvallis area.

    What is your deal Riley? What the hell are you thinking. Why did we give you a lifetime deal? Here is the deal, you can’t just say it is the hand you were dealt and we all just have to deal with it. We want a new deal, because we can’t deal with this anymore.

    What if Riley got all the hot briefcase totting chicks from Deal No Deal? They have some nice deals!
    That would be neat.

    Angry, I think I’ve figured it out with MR and “deal.” He is so giddy about his lifetime deal, that the word
    pops out of his mouth at random moments. Besides, lifetime deals are neat.

    Riley when questioned about who might start on the O-line… “Who knows” Well, let’s see… maybe you should? JB

    PS: Not a good deal or at all neat.

    Here’s a pretty neat deal for the 2012 graduates, Michelle Obama is going to deliver the commencement address.

    Weather has gone from bad to worse. An inch and a half of rain in the last 24 hrs in Corvallis. The forecast for rain drops to 90% about 4pm and goes back to 100% at 7 pm. Saturday it drops to 70%. Looks like a double header on Sunday and a game on Monday.

    Rick Neuheisel will work for Pac-12 Network in 2012:

      Is Neuheisel staying close because he wants a THIRD chance in the league?

    Am I the only one worried that Banker might be interested in the Montana job? I know we dodged the proverbial bullet when he declined the Hawaii opening but seriously who wouldn’t want to move to Missoula????

    BDC needs to open up the vault and secure him, as he did MR, with a long term guaranteed contract!! JB

    PS: CBI Championship Game tonight…. have you all forgotten? What might have been!

      Thanks for the reminder. I called Comcast and upgraded to the HD package so I can watch it at 4PM. Pretty cool that they can upgrade you immediately without coming out to the house. I should have done this weeks ago and saved all the driving down to Corvallis. But there is nothing like experiencing a game at Gill with 2,000 fans and stale popcorn.
      I am already getting excited about next years team. Three of the UNC Tarheel players declared for the draft yesterday so that should cement Cunningham coming back next year as he will not be taken in the first round. The future is bright orange!

      I’m thinking Langsdorf would be a better fit than Banker at Montana. Isn’t he responsible for recruiting Montana? Or is it Locey? Locey would be a great fit there.

      Names like Brent Pease, Dave Schramm and Mike Van Diest are the only ones I’m hearing right now. The talking heads are pushing Dan Hawkins, but I don’t think that’s going to work out. You never know I guess. He’s living in Boise at the moment.

    Does anybody think Riley’s motivational speeches are anything like the one Ray Lewis gave to the Stanford Men’s team prior to the NIT final game?

    Mike van Diest, Carroll College, Helena, is the real deal (speaking of deal – ha ha) but I don’t know if he’d leave.

      I know… with that carousel across the street from the college, who would want to leave?
