If it has been said once, it has been said many, many times: Oregon State Beavers head coach Mike Riley does more with less than anyone. I am the first person to say I am not an expert when it comes to recruiting college football players. Basically, I can only go with what I see on paper or the playing field. To reach any kind of hypotheses, I must balance the two.
In addition, since the last game that was played by the Beavers was the Alamo Bowl loss to the Texas Longhorns, most of my analysis is based on that performance. Unfair? Perhaps. But another cliché I will use: You are only as good as your last game.
We all remember the Longhorns sacking Cody Vaz a whopping Alamo Bowl record ten times. Hence, it would appear the urgency would be on the offensive line.

OREGON STATE'S CLASS is ranked No. 36 in the land, on the strength of JUCO d-end who just officially signed, and it might still go up further if OSU adds one more recruit who's still out there. Since scout.com came into existence, OSU's haul is the second highest rated class Oregon State has ever fielded. And based on the number of recruits, you can make the case it&...
CORVALLIS – This time there would be no second half falter. Oregon State ran away from Utah by a score of 82-64 on Wednesday night to get their second Pac-12 win. Joe Burton and Roberto Nelson had big nights, culminating in Burton flirting with a triple-double and Nelson tossing up 26. It was the Beavs’ biggest winning spread wise since Dec. 31 of last year – what was the difference maker?
Dashon Hunt kept the Oregon State Beavers hanging.
