Huskies almost let this one slip away. Series tied at 1-1.

Will be rooting for the Ducks tomorrow. A Duck win puts the Huskies and Beavers tied for first place.

DM, thanks for the additional names. Several years ago, I use to stay at the Hilton on campus when I would come down to watch games. Danny Hayes's parents would also stay at the hotel. I would often sit at the bar in the evening and have a few diet cokes and talk to his parents. What a nice couple. They talked about how important Casey and his Catholic faith was in his decision to attend OSU. They said they just trusted Casey and his staff and that they thought he had their best interests in mind. Even when Hayes struggled at times and was not starting, I never heard his parents say a negative thing about the Coaching staff.

That's exactly right. Lots of Evergreeners on the OSU roster. Casey does tend to get a lot of Catholic and private/religious high school kids...Boyd, Osich, Engelbrekt, Trever Morrison, Dan Child, Danny Hayes. Lots of top out-of-state kids will still want to play for Casey regardless of how good UW and their facilities become.

FB, I don't think Eugene and the University Oregon acknowledge God. Perhaps a better phrase is - devil awful. Remember, Eugene is the city that banned Christmas.

Thanks for sharing the picture DM. I see a resemblance with Danny. Is this the young man I met at one of the OSU games? I just remember how polite he was. Seems like he was a musician/artist.

FB, I think I will be watching the last game of the series tomorrow with your brother Chris and his wife. I'm looking forward to it.

BB, I am way out here in Florida, so what goes on in Eugene, while it is big news around there, really is a drop in the bucket here. Heck, we got wannabe po-pos shooting kids and claiming self defense. So UofO banning Christmas is not Florida worthy news. Oregon State winning back-to-back CWS on the other hand IS Florida news worthy.

DM, I knew what you meant by your post. You are correct about each. I know Danny's parents would drive up from the Sacramento area. I also remember how they enjoyed getting out of the state of California and spending time in Corvallis.

Well, one clarification: Those are all out of state kids from Catholic schools; not all from WA. Osich was from Idaho; Child and Hayes from NoCal, I think.

Plus, Pat Bailey also has Christian school cred, having coached at George Fox all those years.

No, the young man you met at the game was my son Peter. This picture is of Chris, who passed away in 2005.

FB, I had a great time with your brother and his wife. Really good people. He spoke quite highly of you. They said they were looking forward to visiting you in July to celebrate your 30th wedding anniversary. Congrats!! My wife and I celebrated our 30th last October. It is hard to believe she has put up with me for 30 years of marriage and another 5 of dating.

Who's YOUR surprise of the year so far?

BeaverBob

Kendall, I agree with Washington. I enjoyed watching the entire series with Oregon this weekend. It was great seeing them come from 2 down in the 10th to beat the Ducks on Sunday. The Ducks are going to be hurting if their rookie pitcher, Kruik, has serious arm issues.

Oregon State and RPI

BeaverBob

Hey Kendall and others -- Might OSU ultimately be hurt by its RPI and weak schedule when it comes time for national seeds. Although the Beavers are in the top 8 in most polls, they are in the 30s for RPI and I think #7 in ISR as of today. I can't see how they move into the top 15 in RPI by the time seeding selections are made. I know that RPI is a key factor in seeding.

If they win the Pac 12, I don't think they need to worry about a national seed, but if they were to slip and lose a few games and finish second, will the RPI play a big role in their seeding?

FB, my final comments for the evening. In the spirit of maintaining the environment and our wonderful forests in the State of Oregon -- Eat a Beaver, save a tree.
I've also copied a link to get your t-shirt under the same phrase.

RD, any ideas on why Jerry Allen hasn't been doing much baseball announcing this year? I like Brian Pawltiz better than Allen, but was just curious.

Pilots really look bad tonight. A missed fly ball to right field and a couple of passed balls already in the first.
