Discuss recruiting and anything else.
There are some recruiting notes in the forums here.
If you have inside info, share it.
Lj Moore is down to OSU and OU. thats cool. also, Steven nelson had his bike stolen during class today. Way to welcome him to OSU jackass.
Welcome to the mean streets of Corvallis.
Lt Cord Wood and CPD will get right on that too
when I was in school it was the football players stealing the bikes
Surely, MR has an extra bike laying around in his garage that he can him.
Lane Kiffin making more friends….
He is a tool.
Tools are useful.
I wish MR would reach out to this kid.
We’re on him early, but we’ll see what happens when the elite recruiters start paying attention.
Well the Beavs do like short shooting guards from Chicago that don’t like to pass
I’d say 5 apg is pretty good. He’s a lock-down PG who can beat the 2009 B1G defensive POY (and NCAA Regional first teamer if I remember MSU’s run that year… lost the championship game to UNC?) one on one.
6’2″ 365 lbs?
Some JC film from 2011 for those with SilverLight:
No stars, no offers, high interest in OSU according to Rivals. Recruited by Joe Seumalo.
And visited this past weekend…some info states he’s 6’5″, that should make him mesomorphic at 365…
Castro part dos.
Or maybe Castro times two?
or Castro part “deuce”……..hehehe
Have him come as a preferred walk on.
Any truth to Brayden Kearsley re-committing to BYU? seemed like a couple days ago he strong on our side.
I’ve heard that he’s back on board since they’ve rehired Anae as OC.
Dang. That hurts.
Sounds like Bray has been hired as a full-time assistant. Great move by Riles. Wonder who shuffles out?
I am not, nor do I claim to be, a large donor to the Beavs. I do, however, know and occasionally talk to one ‘cigar’ donor.
Here’s a rumor for you.
There is some pretty serious talk about replacing Danny Langsdorf. There have been grumblings in the past, but this is different. More than I’ve ever heard before with regard to Danny. A lot of big donors have soured on him and finally believe it’s the next logical step to improving the program. I heard similar talk last year with Greg Newhouse before he was offered the job of quality control coach or whatever it was.
During the 2006 season, there was very serious talk about firing Coach Riley, particularly after the Washington State game. But no donor would cut the check required for the buyout. That made sense at the time. Lots of money had been spent on the massive new video board, Raising Reser II was just in full swing. There wasn’t enough money to go around to do that buyout.
Now though? Danny is on a year to year. Lots of people see the issues in team preparation and play calling. Honestly, I think half of the clock mismanagement issues come down to the OC. The fact that our QB’s can’t play well in their first 2 seasons? OC/QB coach. Play calling? OC.
This is one reason I’m glad Coach Kelly is returning to Oregon. The dude is so damn good it forces us to make (for Coach Riley) radical moves like firing an incompetent OC.
No clue who might replace him. The rumors of Coach Bray being hired full time are interesting. One scenario that would work out well would be Coach Locey to OC, Coach Bray to LB coach, Danny to _____. That’s not any part of the rumor, just something I was thinking about as a relatively quick solution to the problem of the OC.
It’s long overdue, and as insensitive as it sounds, that kidney donation has bought him a few years. I mean, how can anyone fire a guy who donated a kidney? I’m a jerk, and I couldn’t do it.
So, likely he will get demoted to a position he won’t accept. That’s the way to do it. He’s been an okay recruiter and QB coach, but I think they can do better. As always with OSU, it is taking forever to cut bait.
“So, likely he will get demoted to a position he won’t accept.”
That’s the theory, but again, nothing is a done deal at this point. Hard to say for sure if it’ll happen.
But even just reading the tea leaves, it doesn’t look good. Danny gets play calling taken away this year (though I think that semi-reverted back to him as the season wore on) as a sort of test. And…the offense improved. Not a great sign for your future employment. Danny sits in the booth, he should be busting Coach Riley’s eardrum for a timeout at the end of the half vs Texas. He should remind the coach that the run was succeeding without fail in the second half. If you can’t do that, you’re incompetent.
Sure,a lot of that is Riley’s fault, but for me, it’s 51% the OC and he’s the only one of the 2 whom we can afford to replace.
And yes, the kidney thing…it’s tough to shitcan a guy like that. I’ve met him a couple times, he’s a nice dude. He’s just not much of a coach.
As good a recruiter Danny has been, I can see Coach Bray being even better once we let him get off campus.
Riley should have resigned his kidney instead-it’s not like Riley is going anywhere anytime soon.
,”I,’m a jerk and i couldn’t do it.”
Too funny I “LOL”-ed
“cigar donor”? I don’t like where this is headed.
“radical moves like firing an incompetent OC”
This statement nails it. You would think incompetence would be a really good reason, in fact an expectation for getting fired.
#OregonSt coaching moves: Trent Bray has been promoted to full-time LBs coach and Jay Locey becomes Chief of Staff (non-coaching position).
Locey just completed his seventh season as a coach, the last four with the position responsibility for tight ends and the previous three with the Beaver wide receivers. His new role includes the responsibilities of prescreening of opponents, team building activities, leadership development, career/job placement opportunities for OSU football student-athletes, Varsity “O” Football alumni engagement, fundraising, coordinating incoming football student-athletes into the summer BEST Program (high school to college academic/athletics transition), and high school and community relations.
Looks like Locey will take on the role Jim Gilstrap used to have. Very creative move to keep Bray. Bray hopefully sees the efforts that was made to keep him and he can use that as a pitch for recruiting.
I see a big advantage here in that Locey gets to breakdown opponents film well in advance of the game.
What the hell is Chief of Staff, and who is currently in that position? Never even heard of it!
I don’t care, as long as they announce soon that Langsdorf and Read have been promoted to Assistant Chiefs of Staff.
Read has a 2 year contract and a buyout too. Next year, possibly he’s a candidate for being promoted.
Unless somebody cuts a check.
His kid is also in school and a “volunteer coach” as well… Josh, I think.
So I wonder who’s paying whom sometimes.
Maybe we should take this time to batter angry because he’s bemusedly mentioned… okay… directly confronted nepotism.
That kind of thing doesn’t happen here at non-good-old-boys-OSU.
Have been some pretty good chief of staffs in the past, Rahman Emanuel and Erskine Bowles. Even Leon Panetta. Things get dicey when you see the names Haig, Haldeman, Cheney, and Rumsfield.
you fucking liberal
I would have to disagree. There’s not a liberal on that list. And I would have to contend the idea that Emanuel was even remotely effective. His assertion that the four crooks who kinda started the whole CoS shadow government shit would maybe get some hackles up… would be correct.
IMO, the best CoS (which is purely a Nixon creation which has stuck) has been James Baker. Donald Regan would be a close second and Panetta would be a distant third. I don’t have to agree with any of their ideologies, but I can gauge their effect just fine.
Card was lunch meat, and Bolten was a fucking liar who didn’t know how to lie.
harsh crowd…as a fucking liberal, I will turn a cheek and recommend a bipartisan approach to fix all that ails Beaver atheletics…
OT: but not really…I read Jack’s comment in an older thread about the lack of BB fans perhaps due to a racial bias to Coach Rob. My naivete at age 54 really shows: I had not thought of that being a reason, but sadly it makes sense given the demographics of ticket holders.
If true, I have have one question: REALLY?
Gary Beck I believe.
What really needs to happen is for Langsdorf to move on or get back into the NFL. Bring in a NFL vet like Perry who’s looking to get back to college.
The reason he hasn’t grown is because he’s been here the whole time. Most coaches bounce around and learn different concepts before meshing it all into their own style. He’s really only been under Riley the whole time.
NO ONE from the league in their right mind would hire Langsdork
Beavers Football ?@OSUBeaversFB
Congrats to incoming Dlineman Edwin Delva for being selected JC 1st team All-America. #gobeavs.
Hope he shows in the fall.
the good news is that he signed. The unknown is whether his grades are good or not.
Apparently OSU coaches visited this kid recently. He’s in the 2014 class
Oregon St and Boise St came thru the school to see me last two days cool coaches
Looks like maybe they’re addressing LB needs?
Hayden Craig has transferred from Montana State to Oregon State for the winter term. He’ll walk on.
For the record, it’s Montana.
I was just reading Bill Poehler’s article. But now that I look back I see that… and that the news is at least a month old.
So is he a pass-catcher, a blocker, or both?
A Montana State defection would have surprised me – a lot. Rob Ash has built a good program, there are stadium upgrades galore, and Mt. State has a new (a couple of years anyway) president, a 5-1″ woman who loves athletics.
And wears comfortable shoes LOL.
Actually, she wears (the couple of times I’ve seen her) high heels and not the chunky kind. She, in 2011, announced at a football game that Jake Jabs, furniture store magnate who used to play guitar at a bar in Bozeman, had donated $25 million to Mont. St. for the construction of a new business school.
To clarify: She didn’t mention the guitar-playing when when she introduced him.
There’s a “chunky kind” of high heels?
Yes, not sure it’s a technical term. The heels are wider and shorter. And that’s all I want to say about that..
Usually it’s here where I excuse myself with a quizzical look.
Fair disclosure: I got a girl who I told on our first date that I hated make-up, and she hasn’t spent a dime on it since.
And heels would maybe bring her within a foot of my height.
Curious, how often do you have to refill her with air?
Only twice so far.
I stand corrected.
She apparently uses a clear mascara.
Is a mascara made of almonds?
You don’t get out too much Jack? Come on, you’ve never heard of chunky heels?! Child please.
I found this thread about what the Grizzly fans were saying about him. Interesting
Didnt realize San Diego St has hired Bob Toledo as their new OC. Great time to have them on the achedule. Fortunately we still have Langsdorf
Another hoopster I’ve heard of is Iziahiah Sweeney out of Compton. I knew CR was chasing him and Jared Nickens along with the Ulis kid from above. But I didn’t realize Scout.com got a top three from him… and that we’re in it with UCLA and Zags.
#OregonSt coaching moves: Trent Bray has been promoted to full-time LBs coach and Jay Locey becomes Chief of Staff (non-coaching position).
It seems a fair trade on the face of it. Wasn’t Locey just an admin guy who was decent at talent evaluation but not on the recruiting trail?
I understand he was also a real coach, but he seemed to be known more for team-building activites.
I’m still interested to know what happens regarding the other rumors/discontent.
So does this mean Brennan takes over the tight ends? Or does Locey continue running that group as a Chief of Staff rather than coach? Who takes over the NW recruiting?
official release for a little more clarity
“Locey’s former responsibility as the tight ends coach will be handled by a yet to be named graduate assistant coach.”
Gotta wonder if this could be Tim Euhus? Maybe looking to finish up a masters degree? Isn’t he currently coaching highschool football at Crecent Valley? Wasn’t he a grad assistant at one time already though? so many questions…..
Yeah, unfortunately, he did his 2 years already.
You got to let this one go man. He never amounted to anything anywhere. Let’s move on.
Is that serious? “Chief of Staff” – what does that even mean on a football coaching staff?
thinking they really wanted to keep Trent Bay, so to get around the coaching limit, created an admin position that still complements the football team
That’s not unusual. A lot of schools have hundreds of people in the AD with a large chunk dedicated to football related activities.
ace is right on.
The really encouraging thing for me is that, by being proactive, MR demonstrates that he is much more engaged than he was in ’10 and ’11. No need to recount here the steps taken last year in his involvement, good to see an indication that he is maintaining his focus.
Riley seemed so distracted in those two bad years, whether the birth of his grandchild or the situation with his Dad, we likely will never fully know the cause. Still lots of areas needing improvement but at least he now seems truly focused.
He was clearly focused in the Alamo Bowl, it just did’t happen to be on the game.
Langsdork and Banker will still be around. Sigh
OT- You guys hear them talking about Brandon Browner during the Seahawks/Falcons game? Said that Pete Carroll loved getting him on the Seahawks because of how Brandon torched USC during his time at OSU.
Pre-roids Brandon to boot!
Re: a GA for the TE’s…
Wasn’t Aaron Nichols a volunteer with the TE’s this past year while working on his pharmacy degree? I’d put good money on him being promoted to GA for that role next year.
Something we haven’t talked about yet are the newly proposed NCAA rule changes. The rich will only get richer, and the NCAA will have less policing to do. Kids are going to be overexposed to contact from schools in my opinion. I’ll paste them in here although it might be too lengthy for a post. Sorry in advance.
PROPOSED NCAA RULES CHANGES
Rule 2-1: Establishes the commitments that guide the underlying operating bylaws. This includes a commitment to fair competition, which “acknowledges that variability will exist among members in advantages, including facilities, geographic location and resources and that such variability should not be justification for future legislation.”
11-2: Would eliminate the rules defining recruiting coordination functions that must be performed only by a head or assistant coach.
11-3-B: Would prohibit the live scouting of future opponents except in limited circumstances.
11-4: Would remove limits on the number of coaches who can recruit off-campus at any one time, the so-called “baton rule.”
12-1: Would establish a uniform definition of actual and necessary expenses.
12-3: Would allow a student-athlete to receive $300 more than actual and necessary expenses, provided the expenses come from an otherwise permissible source.
12-4: Would permit individuals to receive actual and necessary competition-related expenses from outside sponsors, so long as the person is not an agent, booster, or representative of a professional sports organization.
12-5: Would allow student-athletes in sports other than tennis to receive up to actual and necessary competition-related expenses based on performance from an amateur team or event sponsor.
12-6: Would allow student-athletes and prospects to receive actual and necessary expenses for training, coaching, health insurance, etc. from a governmental entity.
13-1: Will allow schools to treat prospects like student-athletes for purposes of applying recruiting regulations once a National Letter of Intent or signed offer of admission or financial aid is received.
13-2: Will allow off-campus contact with recruits beginning the first day of junior year in high school and communication with recruits on or after July 1 after the completion of the recruit’s sophomore year in high school.
13-3: Would eliminate restrictions on methods and modes of communication
13-4: Would eliminate the requirement that institutions provide materials such as the banned-drug list and Academic Progress Rate data to recruits.
13-5-A: Would eliminate restrictions on sending printed recruiting materials to recruits.
13-7: Would eliminate restrictions on publicity once a prospective student-athlete has signed a National Letter of Intent or written offer of financial aid or admission.
13-8: Would deregulate camps and clinics employment rules related to both recruits and current student-athletes. Senior football prospects would be allowed to participate in camps and clinics.
14-1: Eliminates academic regulations that are covered elsewhere and directly supported by institutional academic policy.
16-1: Would allow institutions, conferences or the NCAA national office to provide an award to student-athletes any time after initial full-time enrollment.
16-2: Would allow conferences, an institution, the U.S. Olympic Committee, a national governing body or the awarding agency to provide actual and necessary expenses for a student-athlete to receive a non-institutional award or recognition for athletics or academic accomplishments. Expenses could also be provided for parents/legal guardians, a spouse or other relatives as well.
16-3: Would allow institutions, conferences or the NCAA to pay for other academic support, career counseling or personal development services that support the success of the student-athlete.
16-4: Would allow institutions, conferences or the NCAA to pay for medical and related expenses for a student-athlete.
16-5: Would change all Bylaw 16 references to a student-athlete’s spouse, parents, family members or children to “family member,” establish a specific definition of “family member,” and permit specified benefits to such individuals
16-6: Would allow institutions to provide reasonable entertainment in conjunction with competition or practice.
16-7: Would allow schools to provide actual and necessary expenses to student-athletes representing the institution in practice and competition (including expenses for activities/travel that are incidental to practice or competition) as well as in noncompetitive events like goodwill tours and media appearances.
16-8: Would allow student-athletes to receive actual and necessary expenses and “reasonable benefits” associated with a national team practice and competition. The proposal would also allow institutions to pay for any number of national team tryouts and championship events.
I’m not sure you know what “rich get richer” means. Where do you get that idea?
This looks like they’re trying to do the same they failed to do in hoops… cut out the street agents. It actually gives lesser schools more opportunity. Where the hell did you hear the rich would thrive on this plan?
World Wide Wes attends one or two Montverde games in the last month, and Dakari Johnson commits to UK?
I’ll buy that about as much as I buy Jabari Brown Leaving Nikegon because he “didn’t want to work”… because Mizzou is so well known for never working.
Hmmm… shoe companies have been mentioned.
No… really… shoe companies are the devil within.
I’m not kidding.
Read about WWW and the Pump Brothers.
In fact, find yourselves the wide open stories about the Pumps guaranteeing Oregon State failure after Bobby D failed to hire them as “coaching search consultants.”
The reason most schools hire actual consultants now? It’s because crooks like these shoe shovers will find any crack.
I’m guessing most of you here are not familiar with hoops recruiting of the last decade… or two… or six.
If you think Kentucky has a legitimate recruiting class in the history of recruiting classes, then you’re about as successful a coach and person as Billy Gillespie.
And I’m just talking about Kentucky. If there was ever a poster child for vacating 70% of your historical wins, they would be… well… they are the poster child.
Rule 11-4, would eliminate rules related to the number of coaches who can recruit off campus at any time. Think about this one. Oregon, with their NIKE money behind them, could afford to send 10 coaches to recruit a region while another school with smaller recruiting budget sends three.
Rule 13-3 will likely be brutal on the athlete, from what I reading from various articles a top athlete right now receives about 30 phone calls and 50 text message daily. Think how much they will get with restrictions removed.
Removed restrictions will also means increased pressure to allot more time to constantly in contact with a recruit. If you are not constantly in touch with a recruit, another school fills up that timeslot so to speak
Rules 12-3 to 12-6 on the other hand will be beneficial to student-athletes
Come on man….
Understand at least part of the equation.
The current rule says that only seven of the nine full time coaches can be on the road at the same time. If another gazillion creeps are calling these little boys too many times in the middle of the night, I’m sure they can cull the worst.
If you can’t manage a bunch of old men wanting you in the worst way, then you’ll be very good at applying for jobs in your senior year of college.
I am onboard with this move Bray, seemed to be great, and held players accountable in practice, if you didn’t execute you didn’t get in the game. Meanwhile, Locey did nothing! The TE’s production has been average, the either can’t catch or can’t block. Plus, he couldn’t recruit, we have not gotten one good high profile recruit from the state, and if we lose Kearsley, which it looks like we will. I don’t expect all the top in-state recruits, but half is necessary. I think Bray will be a great recruiter he was coming on as a recruiter at Asu. I am glad this was done now, and that he can hit the trail immediately. I don’t know if he save any or solidify some, but I feel comfortable with him on the trail, hopefully he can have an immediate impact.
Hearing that Jermel Walker will not make it in because of grades, so it will be interesting to see if thay pull the schollie or just sign him, and let him go to JC and see how he goes? The latter probably the most likely.
Riley usually has a grey shirt track. Some of these kids can go back to HS for the next term and get their grades up in order to come in next year this time.
I do not find this to be dishonorable. I like that academics are an emphasis in this path. I think it would be easier to shuffle kids off to JUCO and tell them we’ll be there in a couple years.
Sorry guys but this was not proactive nor can it be described as a move. Proactive is when you do something completely new. This is shuffling and stalling. All the same characters are involved, with chairs rearranged. This is more like slight of hand magic. Now I do applaud keeping Bray. But even if recruiting improves, you are essentially recruiting to a stale and stagnant system at this point if the OC stays. Does he ever teach qbs how to escape or avoid pressure? Tom Brady is slow as molasses but almost never gets sacked. By the way, I do not think that I have heard much about recruiting intelligence or measuring and recruiting smart kids.
Actually, proactive is, “creating or controlling a situation by causing something to happen rather than responding to it after it has happened ”
While the same characters are involved, the MR of 2010/11 would likely have let another team sign Bray and then “responded after” that happened.
I’d like to see improvement in the OC/QB coaching as much as the next guy but appreciate MR taking action to prevent the loss of Bray.
Oh… and your apology is accepted?
I am at the beginning stages of dementia. Thanks for the corrections.
It is proactive.
I get the negative shit as much as the next guy, but come on. ‘Promoting’ the lead assistant coach to a front office gig so you can keep an up and coming LB coach? How much more proactive does it get?
I heard that Brett Favre might not be retiring after all.
Well, ya kinda knew one year ago when ya hired a guy that had already been an assistant somewhere else that the graduate assistant “deal” had a limited shelf life. We call this planning ahead. It took a year to make implement the plan. Great. Next.
Seeing twitter chatter that Chip Kelly is now the Eagles coach and no longer staying at Oregon. Anybody have confirmation?
Seeing as ESPN is slow to the game and very rarely reports speculation, I’ll take this as being a done deal.
It’s a beautiful thing. Can’t wait to see the tears and the decommits.
kerry eggers ?@kerryeggers
Chip Kelly had a team meeting this morning to tell his players he is leavng for Phildelphia.
There was a good comment from a recruit saying “he was just in my house two days ago.”
Haha. Man up and come to OSU.
Oh, and there’s their “truth and rumors” section, dripping with journalistic integrity.
It’s originating with Chris Mortensen’s twitter account and has been spreading like wild fire in the last hour. If untrue, at least it will have been yet another swing in emotions for Duck fan. Although with all of the news carriers retweeting this, it’s looking pretty legit.
Chris Mortensen ?@mortreport
Chip Kelly is the new coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, according to league sources. No announcement yet.
Oh in a week he’ll be back at Oregon.
Kelly going to the Eagles?! Good! It was really getting old getting stomped in the Civil War.
@BillBankGreene: Kyle Kempt sets official visit. http://recruiting.scout.com/2/1258216.html ” Checking out the PAC 12, liked his senior film a lot
Yawn. Another statue who’d take three years to be competent in the Riley system…
When he sees that the practice facility at Massillion HS is nicer than ours he will be less than impressed.
I sure hope he’s better than his older brother Cody.
Kempt just tweeted that he just received an offer from UCONN
I refuse to believe it until I see his floppy man tits standing next to a podium with Jeff Lurie.
Apparently there was a manzier clause written into his contract. He must wear it at all public speaking events, so you may not get to see them.
It’s a BRO!
You have to admit, Kelly runs the reverse better than the Beavers.
Personally, I don’t like him leaving without a CW loss. I’d rather he stuck around, suffered the NCAA infractions, and for OSU to have the (longgggg, outside) shot at beating him.
He’s an east coast guy. I didn’t think Cleveland was FAR east enough for him…
Good luck to him. Now its pure coaching and no ethics required. He should do just fine.
Ding Dong! The Chip has Left. Which old Chip? The Wicked Chip!
Ding Dong! The Wicked Chip has Left.
Wake up – sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed.
Wake up, the Wicked Chip has Left. He’s gone where the players go,
NFL – nfl – nfl. Yo-ho, let’s open up and sing and ring the bells out.
Ding Dong’ the merry-oh, sing it high, sing it low.
Let them know
The Wicked Chip has left!
Anybody know if the “important one” is Harlow? or somebody else?
Mike Riley ?@Coach_Riley
Another day in LA, really important one tonight with @CoachCavOSU , we’re building the future of #BeaverNation! #GoBeavs
Keishawn Bierria is my guess
This is a little encouraging – he apparently has OSU as his leader:
I always fashioned myself as an important one, but Cav has not set up an in home……………..yet.
Mike Riley…………………..happiest man in OR.
Mark Banker happiest man in OR. There, fixed that for you
Riley just threw down a “hip-hip horray” and asked for the list of Oregon commits.
“it’s a neat deal for Chip” said Riley
Kind of interesting in summarizing Kelly’s accomplishments, they don’t even mention Kelly never lost a CW as a head coach, a CW series that had been a rubber match for 10 years before OSU won it twice and then UO dominated since.
I honestly think this hurts the PAC12. Him staying has really forced the PAC12 into an arms race. Think Rodriguez or Leach or Dykes would have been hired if Kelly hadn’t done what he’s done?
In this crazy world of college football, never ever stop to celebrate when your competition stumbles, just pass them by and get further and further ahead.
Agreed that it hurts the PAC-12 but that’s minor compared to the positives for the Beavers. The Beavers obviously have no plans to ever enter the “arms race” to hire a spread-style coach.
Rumor in twin cities is that OSU commit Brandon Arnold is going to take a visit here. Know anything about that Beaverkman?
The latest I heard was that he cancelled his visits, and is staying with his OSU verbal.
To reduce any negative perceptions about Kelly’s ethics, pending NCAA penalties, and to reenforce UO’s commitment to integrity, UO AD Kilkenny announced UO has hired Lance Armstrong as head coach of the Ducks.
“Lance has less experience at the DI level than Kelly did, but like Chip, he knows what it takes to win” said Kilkenny. “We anticipate our student-athletes will train rigorously and enjoyed sustained success. We’re shooting for seven Pac-12 titles in a row!” said Kilkenny, as he handed out yellow, “Live The Day” and “Win Strong” bracelets to reporters.
Oprah Winfrey supported the hire, and said she, UO, and Nike were working on joint ownership and marketing of the “O.”
Why does the Oregonian have this headline about a coach that is constantly being surveyed about sanctions?
With what we always hear about how much Chip loved his staff at Oregon, gotta wonder if he decides to take any of them with him? Some of those guys probably wouldn’t mind an NFL paycheck either.
That will be interesting.
like take Helfrich to the NFL?… now the dux will really go to the deep-end
Comcast already reporting that he’s wanting to take Azzinaro, the D-line coach with him.
Comcast SportsNet NW ?@CSNNW
Source: Chip Kelly interested in taking Jerry Azzinaro w him to #NFL. Azzinaro was Chip Kelly’s own personal pick for hire when he took over
I would figure that head coach would be a better spot than OC in the NFL, but I did hear that part of the package Kelly strong-armed from Philly was a huge allowance for staff salaries. Coaches that move up to the big leagues almost always take a large number of their staff with them. He could strip the cupboard pretty bare when pickings are slim after most colleges already filled their coaching position. Losing coordinators at this juncture would have an even more detrimental impact to the recruiting…
I really like that they’ll have to interview their token minority coaching candidate somewhere between MLK day and Black History Month.
So does that mean Rod Perry has to drive down to Eugene for an interview as long as they buy him lunch and pay his mileage? He should refuse to stall the process!
Oregon AD said “We have a number of internal candidates… we’ve got several coaches on our staff who have the experience and background to be head coaches…but we will also talk to others outside of the program.” That seals it, Mark Banker is the new head coach of the U of O. Pettibone, you got that resume polished up? Mark will need a top notch OC.
I can dream can’t I?
I am hearing that JC DE 3star Lyndon Tulimasealii has committed to the Beavs. Have not seen anything official but a buddy with Blitz access said Angie is reporting it.
Here’s his profile page
Watch Uncle Phil hire Nick Saban and spark to largest mass suicide since Jonestown.
Angry, cherry is my favorite flavor of Kool-Aid.
Riley considering Keaton Kristich and Dorian Smith for grad assistant positions.
I rather take Smith. Didn’t care much for Kristich.
ESPN……Chip Kelly was Manti Te’o's real girlfriend.
I was told Kelly dated Johnny Manzier at one time before getting dumped.
Have a great weekend #BeaverNation! It’s a great day to be a Beaver! #GoBeavs2013
Stud Texas WR…HE HAD DOUBLE digit offers and was down to a pair of Pac-12 schools and one from the Big 12. On Friday, the 6-1, 185-pounder chose Oregon State.
Gonna be a Beaver next year! Couldn’t be more excited about Oregon State University! #BeaverNation pic.twitter.com/moMNLMGJ
This makes up for Kearsly. Jarmon will be the next Wheaton. He is also an outstanding baseball player. Jarmon made an official to Minnesota early in the fall and I saw some highlights. This kid is big time prospect. This is a great get by the coaches. #beaverjiuce!
Hunter looks great.
Beaver prospects taking OV’s this weekend:
LJ Moore, Cameron Judge (ucla), Keishawn Bierria ASU
Brayden Kearsley BYU
Saw that Kearsley is going snow mobiling with the BYU guys on his visit today.
A little more info on the Skylar Phillips scholarship pull. Reconfirms my initial thoughts that for the Beavs to do this, they must know they have a more talented commit (kearsley?) lined up at the same position. Grades dont appear to be an issue.
Or they finally admitted to themselves that he’s the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man.
This guy has been a 0-star all along, and people were justifying him because he signed with OSU.
They got caught up in the sparq numbers.
Hunter Jarmon was first team all state as a punter. Hmmm…
But can he punt backwards?
That is an interesting article. I had heard from others that the coaches wanted him to lose some weight and he was not able to do that so they parted ways. Now, that could be pure speculation because I have no supporting documentation to that fact. But it would seem logical. You got to wonder why he didn’t have any other offers? Even still because he is so raw you wonder if they think he should go JC and lose some weight and work on his skills then come back?
Was the article written by his uncle? Makes him sound like the second coming of Orlando Pace! If the speed is for real (which would only improve with some weight loss), it does give me pause since he’s only been playing for two years. It seems like the Beav coaches are clearly saying he’s not worth any investment at all. Although, with some of the linebackers who have seen the field in the last four years I’m not totally confident in their talent assessments..
I noticed that too. If he was as good as this article made him out to be he would have a few more offers. Some of his issue might be that he has only played a couple years of football. JC might be a better option for him.
Posted earlier in the Chip Kelly discussion…
Ducks Chief of Staff James Harris follows Kelly to Eagles.
Interesting on several levels. As ObjC said above, we will now see how skilled Helfrich is at building a staff, also, a little research on Harris shows his COS position had several things in common with the newly created job for Locey.
Rooting for the Falcons tomorrow.
The run against Seattle isn’t in there. Some nice highlights, about 6 min worth without multiple angles. In college, the film would be twice as long, but he’s still making people look foolish at times while they grasp at air. The burst for 15 yards is often impressive, and I’m surprised he’s been a KR in the NFL, I never thought he had the top gear for it, he’s a torque-rich four speed in a league with 7-speed automatics.
Here’s hoping he gets a super bowl ring…maybe because he’s going against Harbaugh they can throw in some Wildcat packages for him….that would be a blast.
Agree on the top end for KRs. I doubt he’ll return one all the way but I’ll bet he gets alot of long ones and he won’t fumble it away.
The wheel route TD play last year was pretty impressive also, maybe they have that in their back pockets for tomorrow? Falcons all the way, Harbaugh will be unsufferable with a SB ring.
I thought he played well today, some nice blocking and strong runs. I think they should have got him the ball several more times. They put him in there on critical downs towards the end of the game.
I suspect next year his role will continue to increase. And maybe we’ll see James!
We should see alot more quizz in the coming year. Turner is on the wrong side of 30 and he isn’t the the threat of a pass catcher and isn’t the blocker quizz is either. James is tough, I don’t see him getting much run at wide receiver in Atlanta, but could for sure be a special team player, and a darn good one.
Anyone else see the hit quizz put on lmj? Quizz is a baller.
Basketball rankings by Ken Pomeroy. Beavs worst of the P-12 at 123 though Utah is close at 121. Top 5: Florida, Louisville, Indiana, Duke & Michigan. Gophers 8th. Based on past performance. Past performance doesn’t gaurentee future success!
OSU hoops fans deserve better than this. We’ve spent money, accepted and supported mediocrity. Enough is enough. This beaver fan is voting with his wallet and will no longer be seen at Gill until that changes. I’m done with hoops until such time and will be letting the OSU athletic department know how I feel.
And to make matters worse, the Ducks win going away against UCLA and win garnering further national attention. I’m starting to think Altman is a genius, he keeps making it work every season with a hodge-podge of transfers and his own recruits.
because Altman IS a good coach. It was evident from his body of work at Creighton. Oregon got a winner in Altman and we’re still stuck with shit
“Stuck with shit”…..but what annoys me is the amateur psycho-babble that is spewed forth and accepted by the media after each loss.
I’m prepared for a barrage of -’s but… just finished watching the Ducks beat UCLA. Fun to watch, beautifully coached and deep. Can’t wait until 6:00 when I start the DVR….JB
Leslie Robinson is, according to the sports pages and recruiting sites, a top high school basketball player at Corvallis High School, graduating in 2014. I would be surprised if she opted to stay at OSU and would, instead, go to a higher profile program, probably somewhere in the east. Avery Robinson is already in the east and we all know that CR’s mother, sister and her family, are in DC. CR can gracefully exit, OSU will be off the hook, maybe BDC will have retired and there can be a real shakeup in the department.
That talented UCLA team we were all raving about while they were putting a clinic on our lowly Beavs is being made to look fairly pedestrian against the Ducks. While watching that game I realized it is not a talent issue at all, I think Collier and Moreland could both easily step into the Ducks starting lineup. So what is it? Guard play, coaching, attitude/mindset, all of the above?
All of the above. and it starts at the top.
Beavs need some LBs pronto. The three committed stink. Preston is the best of a bad lot.
How dare you challenge the proud Pankeyesque lineage that must continue. How would I know I watching the Beavers is there was not at least one LB on the field who does not have the speed to get to the corner and also plays 70% of the time from his knees? Shit, Angry you are demanding lately.
A LB class only Pankey could be proud of!
Rueben Robinson disagrees with you angry
you night real high on Kyle Peko?
nevermind. Peko is a DT. For some reason I thought he was a LB. Wrong as usual
Greer could be good. DJ Welch didn’t look like much out of HS either. Considering they’re cousins, I think he could be a solid comparison.
One thing he did have though was speed. That’s the big difference between him, and everyone else.
Here is one of Michael Greer’s highlight films:
He actually looks to be pretty fast and had decent hands. Hope he turns out like his cuz.
And don’t forget the Bray factor – he’s likely to bring out the best of Greer’s potential.
A Keishawn Bierria signing would help that matter. Would love to have had Ragin, but we have blown any chance at a In-state recruit. Thank god Locey can’t recruit anymore.
And it’s BYU That’s taking them all. Don’t they have like 4 verbals from Oregon?
That’s fucking annoying.
Those LDS kids. Al
Those LDS kids. For alot of them that is their dream school. At least we are losing them to a non PAC 12 team and a team we aren’t going to be playing anytime soon. Still sucks though.
Angry, with respect, I think you may be wrong. Greer may prove to be bad. He may prove to be merely ok. He has the potential to be the best Beaver linebacker ever. He can tackle. He can cover. He can run. This is well worth the gamble…even if he does not totally pan out. However, he will not be an instant star. Give this kid time to mature and he can be great.
I heard that Manti Teo’s girlfriend was Simi Kuli’s cousin.
She a 5* too?

BYU as always treated me amazing, but damn it feels good to be home! #HomeSweetHome
Wash his mouth out with soap!
Interesting comment about home. Perhaps we may get him after all.
According to rivals, Brandon Arnold was a visitor here in Minny this weekend. Hmmm?
any news on qb khari mcgee?
He started on online petition to vote him in or off the island of Corvallis.
Sounds like the ‘ucks football staff is going to have some brain power in upper management.
Helfrich, 39, was born in Medford and played quarterback for Southern Oregon. He is described as “affable” in his official university biography. He was an NAIA scholar-athlete who earned a biology degree and led the nation in total offense as a sophomore. His first major college coaching job was as a graduate assistant at Oregon in 1997. He went on to coach QBs at Boise State, Arizona and Colorado, where he also served as coordinator, before coming back to the U of O.
Frost also has been on the Oregon staff since 2009. The 38-year-old Nebraska native starred for the Cornhuskers in 1996-97, playing quarterback as they posted a combined record of 24-2 and won a national championship. In his two seasons at Nebraska, after his transfer from Stanford, Frost passed for 2,677 yards and 18 touchdowns, with seven interceptions, and ran for 1,533 yards and 28 TDs. He went on to play six seasons in the NFL as a defensive back, then coached at Nebraska, Kansas State and Northern Iowa before getting the call from the Ducks.
no commitment yet from tatum taylor
