Reynolds, Andrews, Hatfield ink UFA contracts

PERHAPS, BEAV PARTISANS wondered after the NFL draft, if someone missed by not selecting CB Rashaad Reynolds. But he and two other Beavers signed undrafted free agent contracts soon after the drafting had come to a close. And one of those two OSU players was a surprise of a different kind.

‘Coach Cummings' still making impact on Beavs

CORVALLIS – With receiver Kevin Cummings probably out for the season with a wrist injury, Oregon State loses valuable talent on the field -- but do they also lose leadership? BF.C had a chat with OSU receivers coach Brett Brennan and got the skinny on that and more…

PRACTICE: New faces, rotations & injury news

CORVALLIS - The injury news on slot receiver Kevin Cummings was bleak -- but there also numbered reasons for hope coming out of OSU's practice session Tuesday on some of the other walking wounded for the Beavs. Both the offense and defense practiced hard and there were some highlights from unfamiliar faces.

PRACTICE: Interceptions aren't the only thing

CORVALLIS – Tuesday afternoon's OSU practice was interesting to say the least. We have lots of news and nuggets plus an injury update from Mike Riley, the secondary snagged a few interceptions yet still drew the ire of defensive coordinator Mark Banker, and members of the offensive backfield put up a heck of a fight in drills.

PRACTICE REPORT: Spotlight on Beav RBs and D

CORVALLIS – The spotlight for the Beavs is shining brightest on the running backs and the defense headed into Saturday. Will Terron Ward and Chris Brown suffice as OSU's primary RB options? Will the D hold down a mobile QB (another one?!) and what looks like a solid run game? BF.C readers know linebacker D.J. Alexander is pumped up, but what about his counterparts – Joel Skotte and Jabral Johnson?

OSU Two-Minute Drill: Where to even begin...?

SALT LAKE CITY – I started off thinking I was going to write about a Beaver win. Then I thought it would be about a loss, then a win, then a loss. Then overtime. This game had more ups and downs than a dumb waiter. It almost doesn't feel right to call this piece the 2-minute drill – it's more like the 2-hour drill. Just ask the 45,221 fans at Rice Eccles Stadium who were put through the ringer.

OFFENSE PRACTICE REPORT: Enger on the outside

CORVALLIS – Some unexpected movement on the starting O-line shook things up on Tuesday at Oregon State. Two veteran coaches gave BF.C some insight into the goings-on, including the concerns at tackle for the orange and black. Meanwhile, the ongoing battle for playing time at split-end that has yet to produce a clear cut starter, with the first game of the 2013 season just four days away.
