My own spring break
Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I've super busy with my career and I have not been inspired.
I can't wait to see the Beavers in the College World Series again....I hope. They are inspiring. Gotta luv em.
The Beavers Football team looked like they had a decent spring. DE Victor Butler looks primed for a breakout year.
Our QB situation is not looking good. Moevao was inconsistent in the spring game, most of the beat writers explained the reasons, which were many, but when a freshman has better stats than the starter something is not right.
The O-Line is also hurting and testing it's depth. And it's only the spring. I am hoping that squad does some hard work this summer and is primed for a strong '08. O-Line is in my opinion the key lynch pin in the outcome for the Beav's next year. If they suck we are f**ked.
The running backs look ok, we seem to have a stable of capable players. McCants is the talk of the town, but we will have to see how he handles Stanford, and 100k at Penn St.
Our WR core is really strong, which is great because they will have to make a lot of plays in 2008. The QB's, I use plural because there is no Derek Anderson in the mix, will get the ball there accurately some of the time. The WR's will need to make plays.
Our Defensive Secondary looks very strong, and I think that is really important. A shut down secondary will take the pressure off the front seven. Allowing the new guys to grow up faster. Al Afalava is the man, and B. Payton ain't too shabby either. Our corners are pretty darn good and experienced.
Special teams is a question mark. I don't what care what a kicker does in practice and in the spring. Let's see how they react in front of 100k and a national TV audience.
On an upbeat note, OSU's 20k square foot Sports Performance Center is really impressive according to the local press.
