OSU's New Uniforms....

Suck. Ok, maybe they don't suck as bad as the Oregon Ducks uniforms. But it's not better than last years uniforms. The colored stripe on the top of the chest and crosses the shoulder pads is stupid looking. I hope this is not a continued trend for OSU. They need one design and stick with it. Although lots of other teams had a similar uniform design, the Beavers needed consistency. Changing uniforms is lame. I prefer old school. Trendiness is for just that, trends, which come and go.

The Spring Football Game is Upon Us

This weekend the Beavers will play their annual spring game at Reser Stadium. OSU's revamp of the south enzone is looking great. The improvements make the old side of the stadium look antiquated.

A lot of the starting players for OSU have not suited up full time this spring, but a lot of backups got good experience. This is fine with me, my only concern is that those players who nursed injuries or were held back will be rusty in the fall. I don't think it's a big deal given the experience level of most of our starters, but still, timing and technique will suffer.

Here is an archive of spring practice propoganda from OSU's Athletics Dept.

Don't underestimate our schedule next fall. Yes we have a lot of position players back, but we have a new QB. New QB's in the Pac-10 usually need half a season to get in the groove-see Nate Longshore Cal QB. Cal groomed Nate into a pretty good Pac-10 QB by thoughtfully scheming gameplans that didn't put undo stress on the newbie QB. It will be interesting to see how Mike Riley handles his new QB this fall. I expect Bernard is going to get a lot of carries early and often, until defenses start keying off him and forcing OSU's new QB to make plays.

BTW- I've added a new search system to this blog from Eurekster. This looks pretty cool, nice search results too. Check it out. Help me build my cloud of keywords!

BTW2- OSU' Baseball team is awesome.

Beav's are getting new uniforms for 2007

I don't know why, but OSU is changing their uniforms this year, according to my source. And since I am just a blogger, I don't need more than one source....but if you need to find more go for lover.

I think new uniforms is a mistake. It's like a slippery slope, just look what happened to the University of Oregon program. They are complete fruitcakes over there. I think OSU should keep their current uniforms for at least a few more years, if not forever.

Question: Does USC change their uniforms every other year?
Answer: NO!

Cool Highlight Video from the Sun Bowl

I guess this was made by a Mizzu fan, not sure why. If I was a Missouri fan I would want to forget this game.

The future QB for OSU?

Spring ball is starting this month, and the big question is whether or not Sean Canfield will be the man. His only threat at this point is a JC transfer and some freshman. It will be worth following.

In case you need a reminder about the energy around OSU football:

A feel good story about Keith Ellison returning to OSU to get his degree. Not sure what he is majoring in, but I hope it is accounting related. Most pro players don't know jack about managing money. They rely on donkey agents for advice.
