For some reason Mike Riley and Bob De Carolis have always seen Corvallis as their own Private Idaho. A slower paced town where they can hide away with less pressure, sell the same old tired lines every year, and even get away with highway robbery in terms of contract deals. Show me one other deal as sweet based off a 5th place bowl shellacking like we received from BYU in the Vegas Bowl. He was rewarded for that?
Sadly it has reached a whole new level of ineptitude in Corvallis. Riley and BDC both now view their quiet little corner as closer to an Ice Planet Hoth. They aren’t convinced it is working too great though so instead of constructing a base Riley came up with his 2nd grand idea. His first being an extension for every 6-6 year in perpetuity. Riley suggested to BDC that they better think of a hiding spot better even than Ghadafi’s drain pipe in Libya. He thought they should carve an opening in a Tuan Tuan and just live in there. BDC agreed it was a great idea.
