OSU 2013 Season in Review: Safety

CORVALLIS – The final BF.C 2013 position review focuses on the safeties. OSU seemed to have two of the best at the position at the start of the season. And although there were certainly some big moments from both, there were also some shortcomings. Should we reserve sentiment upon review of the duo's efforts in ‘13?

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: Mannion in a groove; D eyes SDSU

CORVALLIS – Oregon State's second practice ahead of Saturday's contest at San Diego State looked solid. But what's the story on the RBs? The D got both good and bad news on the injury front. Mike Riley talked SDSU in the media huddle, and shed light on where D.J. Alexander is at after his first game. The O-line barreled ahead despite the ongoing injured, and Sean Mannion was in a groove.

PRACTICE REPORT 2: Consistent on D

CORVALLIS – Oregon State's D didn't necessarily put up highlight reel action on Wednesday – but shouldn't consistency be considered a highlight? A solid effort all around led to some nice plays on the line and in the secondary, while an integral LB is starting to come full circle. And Mike Riley had a thing or two to say about the ongoing battle for playing time at starting corner on Wednesday.

DAY 15: Prep continues, OL/DL have some fun

CORVALLIS - More Eastern Washington prep was in the cards as OSU's final two-a-day of fall camp also contained a bit of levity for the big bodies up front. The quarterbacks made the most of the session, though. Three wideouts made their marks in the BF.C notebook and with some veterans sitting out, a group of younger Beavs showed their skills as well as areas in need of improvement.

OSU FALL CAMP DAY 12: News and notes

CORVALLIS - Saturday was all about installation for OSU. The offense worked on some new plays, the D refined coverages and fronts. No pads at all on Saturday -- and the lack of crackin' shoulder pads gave the coaches time to zero in on individual players and dish out some coaching. Mike Riley offered a timeline for redshirt announcements, and the latest on two JUCO DL who still have not arrived...

DAY 11, Session 2: Beav WRs light things up
