BeaverBytes - May 6-12

News and notes on Oregon State Beaver football and men's basketball from May 6-12.




  • After an NCAA grace period for correcting reporting errors, Oregon State's football team increased its APR from 892 to 904.  The new mark is still well below the 925 cut off in which teams who have an APR lower than 925 next year risk losing a scholarship.



  • Tanja Kostic, a two-time Pacific-10 Conference basketball player of the year and the Beavers' career leader in scoring (2,349 points) and rebounds (1,001), has been selected to the Oregon State Sports Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony will be Sept. 23 at Reser Stadium.

    Other inductees for the 11th class of the school's hall of fame include gymnast Traci Crover, wrestler Jim Crumley, high jumper Tim Woods and the 1954-55 men's basketball team that won the Pacific Coast Conference championship.

  • Oregon State football players Adam Speer and Bryan Payton got a split decision on the "Judge Judy" show Tuesday in Los Angeles.

    Reality TV judge Judy Sheindlin ruled against Ben Arends, a 21-year-old Linn-Benton Community College student, and awarded Speer $1,500 to repair the 1994 Ford Bronco that Arends allegedly damaged by punching it early Dec. 18 near the Hilton Garden Inn in Corvallis...more from The Oregonian.

  • Like the Delta House frat brothers in Animal House, Carson Palmer and Chad Johnson were inspired last Nov. 8 to call for a road trip. Only there was no beer-swilling, car-crashing wildness involved...more from USA Today.
