Ryan Katz is one of the most intriguing QB prospects in the 2013 draft. A graduate student from Oregon State who transferred to San Diego State for one more year of college football to boost his stock, Katz had a fine year for the Aztecs in 2012, throwing for 1,348 yards, 13 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions, while completing 60% of his passes. Katz had a stellar sophomore year...
Who loves quarterback carousels? Oh that’s right, no one does, especially not Beavers’ fans. It seems like they have to deal with one every year. In 2008, it was Lyle Moevoa and Sean Canfield. In 2009, it was Sean Canfield and Lyle Moevoa. In 2010, Ryan Katz won the job and held it all year. In 2011, the Beavers went back to a carousel with Ryan Katz and Sean Mannion. Then this...

For a team that is used to success, the last two years have been hard on the Oregon State Beavers.

The quarterback controversy with Sean Mannion and Ryan Katz caused discord, and injuries to almost...
Last four years filled with pain

A series of unfortunate events undid Oregon State this season.
From a fall camp besieged by injuries, to the season-opening loss to Sacramento State and the final 49-21 defeat to in-state rival Oregon in the annual Civil War, 2011 was the Beavers' worst season since 1997.
Oregon State ended 3-9 overall and 3-6 in the Pac-12 Conference, finishing out of the postseason for the...
