Riley calls 2011 results unacceptable
Riley said they need to look at changes on both offense and defense in order to be better.

Riley said in recruiting, they have a number of uncommitted recruits who they will be visiting and who will visit OSU over the next two months.
Riley said Linebackers, Corners, Safeties are points of emphasis in the remaining slots for the 2012 class.
Riley said the Beavs are looking at a number of junior college players, saying he wouldn't be surprised with "a handful" of JUCO signees.
Riley said there will be a complete medical evaluation so that "anything that is still lingering out there will be taken care of immediately."
Riley said James Rodgers, Lance Mitchell, Johnny Hekker are among the prospects that he thinks will draw NFL interest.
Riley didn't know Dennis Erickson had been let go. "Wow," was his reaction.
