Extra-Extra, OSU news links 5/23

FROM IN AND AROUND Planet Beav, there's a blog from The Oregonian wondering aloud if Mike Riley and Mike Bellotti should swap salaries, a piece in the Gazette-Times on how the Oregon State baseball team could be staying home unless they get some help, a hoops news update, Yvenson Bernard in the "just in case you missed it", and more.

Mike Riley doesn't put as many fannies in the seats (Autzen is bigger and Faber sells more season tickets) but his teams do win in November, they win their bowl games - and there is a very real possibility that the lunchpail Beavers, who don't have a rich owner, will bag the Ducks for the third year in a row. ... circle Nov. 29 on your calendar, and take the over.
Bellotti could make $3,050,000...does that include the month of November and OSU game?

A long, emotionally draining 52-game baseball season could end this weekend for the Oregon State Beavers. OSU's postseason hopes are dangling by a thread. If it's finally severed, it will be less about what they do this weekend than how others do or think.
In need of wins

Oregon State men's basketball coach Craig Robinson..spoke to about 150-200 boosters at Thursday's Corvallis Beaver Huddle in the Club at Reser Stadium. It was the first time since his hiring news conference that he's met with Corvallis fans, and he got them caught up on his background, the state of the program, his plan to revive a dead-in-the-water program, and then took about 15-20 minutes answering a wide array of questions.

Angelo Tsagarakis never really wanted to leave Oregon State. Tsagarakis, the long-range jump shooter with a last name made for PA announcers, Sog-A-ROCK-us!, didn't see eye to eye with now-deposed men's basketball coach Jay John.
Tsagarakis wanted to stay with Beavers

The scenario is simple: The Oregon State baseball team has to win all three games this weekend if they are going to have any chance of making the postseason for a fourth consecutive season. And even if they win all three games it does not guarantee anything for the two-time defending national champs.
Last gasp for Oregon State Baseball

The NCAA tournament hopes of Oregon State and other Pac-10 teams hinge upon the outcome of this weekend's games and decisions made by the selection committee
One last swing

And from the "in case you missed it" department from earlier this week...

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers want him, but former Oregon State tailback Yvenson Bernard isn't thinking about that. He thinks he can play in the NFL, but last week Bernard failed his physical exam before the St. Louis Rams' mini-camp and his agent says he is back in Corvallis, extremely disappointed.
Bernard fails Rams' physical, back in Corvallis, headed to Canada?
