Why I am proud of OSU these days....

I am happy that today's OSU FB program looks nothing like the program I played for- these guys are competitive nowadays, most of all the academic record is getting better. Strangely, OSU tends to take fringe qualifiers every recruiting season but they still have turned out some great scholar athletes lately. Football only lasts so long, academics pave the way for long term opportunities. Below is an excerpt from for this week's game against UCLA-which is a must win game BTW.

ACADEMICALLY SPEAKING: Every Oregon State senior will graduate (or already has) this academic year. The following players have already graduated; TE Brady Camp (sociology/master's program), OT Timi Oshinowo (engineering/master's program) and TE John Reese (communications/master's program). Fall graduates include LB Keo Camat (liberal studies), CB James Dockery (business), OL Nathan Hannah (exercise and sport science), DE Mitchel Hunt (economics), PK Justin Kahut (engineering), C Alex Linnenkohl (business), OL Wilder McAndrews (pharmacy), DE Gabe Miller (engineering), WR Aaron Nichols (pharmacy), DT Brennan Olander (anthropology), DT Stephen Paea (sociology), OL Ryan Pohl (engineering), LB Dwight Roberson (liberal studies), WR James Rodgers (communications), S Suaesi Tuimaunei (sociology), LB Walker Vave (ethnic studies). Winter term graduates include DT Evan Hull (communications) and LB Keith Pankey (geology). Nichols and McAndrews have been accepted into OSU's Doctor of Pharmacy Program - only 10 percent of the applicants are admitted.
