FEW PROBABLY REMEMBER it now but Jacquizz Rodgers didn't begin the year as the starting tailback at Oregon State -- Ryan McCants did. With Quizz, a national sensation as a true frosh for the Beavs last year, to be contact-limited during spring practice to protect his healing shoulder blade, McCants will again be center stage. And many more questions loom at running back headed into spring drills.

CORVALLIS -- Two talked about position changes for this spring have already been well documented on BF.C. But what emerged today in a talk with Mike Riley was that the idea for the changes -- Gabe Miller from tight end to defensive end, and Will Darkins from linebacker to fullback -- were suggested by the players themselves. And both players have experience to draw upon in their new spots.

EVEN A casual Oregon State would know who our Freshman of the Year is, but our MVP pick, or should we say MVP picks, might surprise you. Plus, the Unsung Hero Award, Mr. Steady, the Warrior Award and plenty more honors and accolades inside. Don't agree with the picks or have a memory/story about a player's performance this year? Make your thoughts known on the BF.C message boards.

WR SAMMIE STROUGHTER becomes just the third player in school history to record more than one 1,000 yard receiving seasons; DE Victor Butler and DE Slade Norris finish in the top 5 of OSU's career sack list; P Johnny Hekker averages 49.3 yards a punt in the fourth quarter. Plenty of more news and notes in BF.com's comprehensive post game notebook of the 75th Sun Bowl.
