19.Nov.2013 Lindsey Schnell Needs to Go
Having a beat writer in bed with the coaching staff doesn’t help the Oregonians’ mandate of objective reporting.
Tweet #1: @Quizz79 Lastly, do you have ANY idea how well respected Riley is around CFB, esp from other coaches, who know he’s not working with much?
Tweet #2: On my flight home yesterday I sat next to a very nice, very smart fan who understands why Riley is right guy for OSU. Wish more ppl got it.
Tweet #3: If you fire Riley, you likely hire someone who thinks of OSU as a stepping stone … and then you become all about constant turnover.
Tweet #4: You need to understand that Riley is doing a lot with not very much. You do understand that OSU is not a destination job, right?
Tweet #5: Mike Riley getting a lot of questions this morning about things NOT related to Oregon State football.
I’d like to know what the questions unrelated to football were.
Let’s assume there’s a smidgeon of truth that Riley doesn’t have a lot with which to work. Does she stop to think that maybe it is his own doing? A perfect example is the best RB he signed off Quizz’s “Heisman” buzz was Ward. Any other coach would milk that for a blue chip. Riley constantly plucks low-hanging fruit, so any deficiency in his pantry is due to his lack of grocery shopping.
Here is her twitter so you can see how bad it is: https://twitter.com/LindsayRae19
Oregon State beat writer for The O in PDX. Love football and fashion — who says the two are mutually exclusive? — but my heart belongs to hoops.
She sounds like a bimbo/ditz.
Here’s a chat she conducted today: http://www.oregonlive.com/beavers/index.ssf/2013/11/live_chat_talk_oregon_state_fo_7.html
Check out the first comment:
A school without resources can have a good few years, but ultimately cycle back (a la Boise State), but ultimately it ALL comes down to the reality that has permeated all levels of football now. Can you guess what that is? Hint: it starts with MONEY, ends with MONEY, has MONEY in the middle!!
We have loser fans, a loser beat writer, and a mediocre college coach (who was a big time loser in the NFL). Everyone invested wants to protect the status quo. Lindsey gets off on being close to the program and feeling important. Fans hate reading her crap. And she is a HORRIBLE writer (I did not edit his post, and it’s probably more well-written than her Nationally published pieces).
