Pa'aluhi leaves OSU football team

THIS is not good news for the Beavers. The LB's in Mark Bankers offense are critical. I don't believe Pa'aluhi was an All-American, but his loss will hurt.

OSU is coming into spring practice with a bunch of inexperienced kids playing LB.

Linebackers call plays, stuff holes, and cover RB's and TE's. They have to be ballers.

As far as I can tell the Beav's don't have a stud waiting in the wings in the linebacking core.

Here is a video of the 2002 OSU team which had a bunch of pro players beating the Ducks into submission...gotta luv it!

This year's recruits

Here is my rating on this year's class of signee's- B-

Hits: Mannion

First off the misses-

Owamagbe Odighizuwa- He chose UCLA over Nebraska and OSU. He is from Portland Oregon. He is a punk. I hope we blast his punk ass all over the field someday.

As for the commits- I think it's a pretty standard class for Riley. I don't see any Steven Jacksons or Jaquizz Rodgers, but we will see if this class can produce some ballers. On defense, Riley pulled in some big d-lineman. According to the chart below, they might be able to run too.
