For an overview on what to expect, useful links, roster moves, notes and more read the Beavers open spring camp article.

High Expectations
The bar, Oregon State football coach Mike Riley readily acknowledged, has been raised.

Last year's 10-win season, the second-best in OSU's 109-year history, a third-place finish in the Pac-10 Conference, a win over Missouri in the Sun Bowl and a No. 21 national ranking encourages a ton of high expectations ...more from the Register Guard.

Girding for the gridiron
When Oregon State hauls out the pads next Tuesday for the start of spring practice, the major question marks will come on the offensive side of the ball.

The Beavers return 18 starters (including kicker Alexis Serna and punter Kyle Loomis) from the team that won eight of its last nine games, including a 39-38 Sun Bowl thriller over Missouri, to finish third in the Pac-10 with a 10-4 record and rank 21st in the nation ... more from the Portland Tribune.

Development time
There’s an excitement around the Oregon State football team as spring practice begins this week.

It’s coming off a dramatic Sun Bowl victory and a strong recruiting class. Mix that in with a large group of experienced players back for one or two more seasons, and the Beavers go into spring trying to continue their success ... more from the Gazette Times.

OT Mau Nomani will not be available for the 2007 as he will be going on his church mission.
