Where’s the defense?!
Sure, they lost Markus Wheaton and Jordan Poyer to the NFL, but the 2013 Oregon State Beavers are still a team filled with depth and talent. So why is it that in their season opener—at home—they manage to lose to an FCS opponent.
And this wasn’t just a loss, it was a beatdown.
Yes, OSU scored a lot of points. And it was an incredibly close game. But...
CORVALLIS - Jordan Poyer is gone, and OSU is up a creek at corner. Oh wait, that’s not correct. The Beavers welcome back a stud at corner in 2013, one who likely won’t be unsung for long. A position battle will take place opposite him. So what depth concerns exist, if any? And what about the rookie corners who will make their first fall camp appearances on Aug. 5, what should...
THE DEFENSIVE BACKFIELD conversation at Oregon State headed into spring will center around replacing consensus All-America selection Jordan Poyer. And one of the new pieces will be in Corvallis in the spring to try and stake an early claim. Insiders Chad Luther and Drew Wilson-McGrath take a closer look at the Beaver secondary…

CORVALLIS -- A strange game transpired Saturday at Reser. The Beavers tacked on a win without Sean Mannion, Jordan Poyer and Storm Woods. How was OSU able to pull out a W sans three of their marquee starters? We have the answer…
Jordan Poyer had three interceptions, Sean Mannion passed for 270 yards and No. 14 Oregon State survived a shaky start with a 19-6 win over Washington State Saturday.
Markus Wheaton had 95 yards receiving and a touchdown but it was the Beavers defense which kept the Cougars at arm's length on the day when Mannion, who threw three interceptions, was more down than up.

A QUARTET of Beavers -- Jordan Poyer, Scott Crichton, Michael Doctor and Markus Wheaton -- are receiving preseason accolades in recently released awards lists and magazine rankings.
Stanford receiver Chris Owusu was taken from Reser Stadium by ambulance on Saturday after a helmet-to-helmet hit by Oregon State's Jordan Poyer.
Owusu, who was also hit hard last weekend in No. 4 Stanford's triple-overtime victory over USC, was prone on the field for several minutes after the hit midway through the second quarter.

Oregon State has been a major disappointment this season and their fans have every right to be upset. That being said, there is no place in sports for the idiocy that took place over the weekend after the Beavers 38-28 loss to BYU. Oregon State is 1-5 and off to its worst start in 15 [...]
