To culminate the first spring session under new head coach Gary Andersen, OSU held its annual Spring Game Saturday. A lot of things were the same: A surplus sale of Beaver gear, the games and bounce houses for the children, and — my personal favorite when I was younger — the autograph line with all of the players.
Seth Collins has already won the starting job among the general public and in Beaver Nation. Not only that, but he also already has a Twitter page campaigning his future Heisman Trophy victory.
There is a battle brewing on the turf of Reser Stadium, and the winner will be the starting quarterback of the Beavers for the foreseeable future. True freshman Seth Collins and redshirt freshman Nick Mitchell are the last remaining candidates for the position after all other competitors have either transferred or changed positions.
It’s weird; this is the first time in my years at Oregon State University in which the baseball season has started off with little fanfare.
When it comes to playing at home, there’s no question that the Oregon State men’s basketball team plays with a level of intensity and focus that disrupts opposing teams. Top-10 teams like Arizona come into Gill Coliseum, and what should be an easy win, turns into a 40-minute battle that turns into a home team upset.
Thursday, the Oregon State men’s basketball program notched another win at home and — once again — the perfect record inside of Gill Coliseum continued.
