RILEY: DT Olander may be out for the year
the staff of BF.C
Posted Nov 9, 2010
IT'S NOT EXACTLY the kind of news you want to hear as the Beavers enter the stretch run of the 2010 regular season. DT Brennan Olander is out for this Staurday's game against WSU, and possibly for the rest of the season, Mike Riley said Tuesday. That and much more, from the Beavs' head man.

So who steps into his place?

is “probably not feeling the best. Come Tuesday, we’re hoping he can get back out there…He worked out on Sunday,” said Riley, who went on to say he anticipated Bishop playing on Saturday.
has a good chance I think to be back (this Saturday),” said Riley.
Riley at the end of the conference call said Stephen Paea may not practice as much this week but then the call was cut off before he elaborated. It wouldn’t appear to be anything serious, potentially one of those things when late in the year guys have bumps and bruises and you want to give them some rest, and then they go play starter’s snaps on Saturday.
Riley said not getting Quizz enough carries, particularly in the second half, is something that needs to be fixed. “It’s a major factor in him not getting the ball enough…we didn’t convert third downs..in the second half we ran 20 plays and that should be what he gets in the second half…and they held the ball for a long period of time,” said Riley.
The past two years, OSU has been in the Rose Bowl chase at this stage. But now with two Pac-10 losses this year, Riley said it would be a test of their character, their mentality, to not be swayed by the fact they no longer control their own destiny.
How do the Beavs get mentally prepared after the tough loss to UCLA? Riley said the last game has to be gone and forgotten, and that you can never let the last game beat you again the next week.
Riley said there would be no trap game on Saturday, that it would be “totally impossible” for the Beavers to overlook WSU.
On the WSU quarterback
, Riley called him “an outstanding talent” and said Tuel, with WRs
, stand out to him.
“On defense, they run a four man front and there’s quite a bit of variety to it,” said Riley.
Riley also said the Beavers will have to watch out for Tuel running.
“I think everyone knows (WSU) is a vastly improved team from the last couple years…and then we turn it to our issues -- this is about us getting better, attention to detail, enthusiasm for work,” said Riley.
On if he can empathize with
given Riley’s situation at Oregon State when he arrived. “It’s never easy. I think the thing they’ve done is they’ve basically persisted….I’ve talked to Paul (Wulff) a lot about that through the last couple years and I think they’re doing a nice job with it….I think it’s a job well done,” said Riley.
