The good, the bad, the question: RB

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.

Miller & Darkins can draw upon experience

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.
