NOTEBOOK: Checking in on UCLA

HOW AMPED UP are they in Los Angeles after UCLA's 3-0 start and No. 19 ranking? An LA Times writer this week said Jim Mora, who has coached all of three games in college, looks to be cut from the same cloth as the best college/pro coach in the game today.

PRACTICE REPORT: Beaver O and D rising

CORVALLIS – The latest word is Saturday's game with Nicholls State is still on – good news for a Beaver team that was wired in on the practice field. Sharp plays from the offense in the red zone and solid play by the Beaver d-line and linebackers were among the highlights as the 1's continued to work on likely game scenarios. OSU's head man also talked a little about what he expects come Saturday.

CORVALLIS -- The offensive line shined on Monday, as their counterparts on the other side of the ball got a heated pep talk from d-line coach Joe Seumalo. Have the tables started to turn in terms of a heretofore weak point headed into Week 3 of fall camp?

DAY 12: Banker, Perry, Bray all weigh in

CORVALLIS -- Mike Riley was absent on Day 12 of the Beavers fall camp – Mark Banker called the shots and at session's end, there were water balloons involved. But a slew of Beaver players remained inactive during practice today and the defense is still in the midst of rebuilding, says Banker. Still, we asked the OSU d-coordinator who is standing out on D and he had no shortage of names to offer..
