I guess the Texas and Alabamas of the world even mess up every once in a while and sign a 1 star recruit. Just kidding, SI jumped the shark in the early 70s. Only boneheads waiting around in dental offices read it anymore.

Now she can suck on national teat like the rest of the media. We all know she has no backbone and took the job so she can buy more shoes and clothes. Good riddance!

Now hire someone with integrity, Oregonian (I might consider your offer if it’s lucrative and paid in gold or bitcoins).

    So happy.

    She wrote amazing human interest pieces. Unfortunately this was 1% of her work.

    I don’t know, she and that Conner guy ask(ed) harder questions than the previous crew.

      true. Buker seemed bored with the assignment, but it went from bad to worse with LS because she somehow came to see it as her role to protect Riley, hell, even to protect DeCareless indirectly. With her leaving we have at least the theoretical hope that someone can come on board with a critical outlook

    she always said Corvallis wasn’t a destination job and couldn’t attract and retain top talent.

    /obvious sarcasm/

    Couldn’t stand her on twitter – self absorbed, thin-skinned, etc. However, she was a talented writer as seen in several good long form pieces on the Beavs and the several articles she has had featured on Grantland.

      You should have been in classes with her.

      Still recovering from that.

    So who takes her place on the Corvallis-aint-no-place beat?

    Gotta sympathize with anyone on it unless Riley finds his old energy.

    Lindsay Schnell was the most annoying writer that I have ever read 5x a week. And that Connor kid is John Hunt Jr. He better be careful too, or someone will end up kicking his ass for talking sh*t, just like Hunt did before getting the boot.

      are you saying Hunt got his ass kicked? Or Hunt kicked Connor’s ass? Inquiring minds want to know.

      And if we’re gonna go all fight club and get to pick one boregonian sportswriter we’d like to fight, I got dibs on Canzano

    The lighting in Gill is simply awful. Flipped the TV to the game on Pac-12 and it looks dreary, murky, and dull. Upgrade the damn lights!

    did CR finally get the memo that Stanford is not very deep. Attack their bigs inside and get them in foul trouble.

    Did Moreland seriously tip in that basket for Stanford at the end of the half? I couldn’t tell but the announcers said he did

    I think I like watching the Beavs better when Nelson isn’t in there.

    Every possession for both teams end with a trip to the foul line. Hard to watch.
    Why is it once conference season starts Collier can’t score?

    beavs win a free throw fest 81-72. I think Hallice Cook did well in his first start and he deserves to start over Barton. Collier did his normal disappearing act now that conference play has started. Wasn’t pretty at all as Stanford is not that good. Flip over to ESPNU, Portland leading Gonzaga by 8 at halftime.

    Ha! George Dohrmann joins me in my conspiracy theory that CR will leave once Leslie graduates.

    What do you think it will take for Robinson to be fired? #

    George Dohrmann ?@
    @Husky808 He takes the Princeton AD job and leaves on his own.

    Another tweeter/twitterer then fears BDC appointing a new coach.

      I think your theory has some teeth to it. Although, would they hire him with no real administration background?

        Wouldn’t all that banking/business background count for something? He’s written a (not very interesting) book and he got the bb facility built. If there’s a glitch, I think it might be his being AD whilst his daughter plays on a team, but perhaps that wouldn’t matter.

        People here want Pat Casey to be our AD… Appropriate experience isn’t a qualification in this forum.

        Although I think CR would be a good fit for AD at OSU.

    As for dear Lindsay – her 1st article will probably be about Mike Riley and how OSU can’t do any better.

    And they storm the court at the chiles center. Portland beats Gonzaga 82-73. Zags had beaten the pilots 20 straight.

    It’s about as lively as a late season Sacramento Kings game at Matt Court right now.

    and the ducks continue to be Mike Montgomery’s bitch. Cal wins in Eugene 96-83. 12 straight over the ducks for Cal. Cal only went 8 deep, only 6 players scored and the starting 5 all scored in double figures. ducks don’t play D either

      Mike Montgomery all time against the ducks………..

      40-9. All 9 of those wins for the duckers came in Eugene. Oregon has never beaten a Montgomery coached team on the road or neutral court. Never at Maples nor at Haas Pavilion.

      As stated the ducks are Mike Montgomery’s BITCH!

      Hard to tell. They beat Uconn and only lost by 3 to Michigan in Ann Arbor. Beavs improved the quality of their possessions, their D looked improved, and CR had better combinations of guys on the floor.

        Don’t worry Bend, those improvements won’t be allowed to last. We’re striving for mediocrity here, dammit.
