takes shot at NFL with some sharp passing
He wasn't invited to the NFL combine. He doesn't have the "Are you
kidding me?" arm strength of someone such as JaMarcus Russell of
Louisiana State, and he won't raise any eyebrows with his bench press
or his vertical leap, but former Oregon State quarterback Matt Moore is still a decent bet to make an NFL roster.
About 21/2 months
removed from his most valuable player performance in the Sun Bowl, Moore
worked out Friday at Reser Stadium during OSU's Pro Day, making crisp,
accurate throws in front of a gaggle of scouts who also got another look
at draft hopefuls Joe Newton, Sabby Piscitelli
and Adam Koets ... more

Twelve players worked out for 20 NFL scouts Thursday. Here are the numbers
for Piscitelli, Koets, Newton and Moore - the four players that are most
likely to be drafted.

look around the Pac-10
Spring key: The headlines will focus on the quarterback competition between
touted Sean Canfield and scrappy Lyle Moevao.
It might not be the coronation for Canfield that many fans believe -- Moevao
already has been compared to savvy former QB Jonathan Smith
-- but Canfield is the favorite. Whoever wins, he'll have great talent to
work with at receiver and with TB Yvenson Bernard. The
Beavers also have voids at tight end, strong safety left tackle and two
spots on the defensive line ... more
Beavers expect to contend in Pac-10
It takes guts to spurn a tie and go for two and the victory. It's a decision
that often requires a coach to reach deep into his playbook for something
fancy and unexpected.
Oregon State coach Mike Riley thought about doing that
in the Sun Bowl against Missouri after tailback Yvenson Bernard the Beavers'
emotional leader, suggested they go for two during an official review
of the touchdown play with 22 seconds remaining that had set the game
on the cusp of overtime ... more

College World Series title
It's supposed to be unrealistic -- and maybe even a dirty trick -- to compare
a national championship team to the one that follows it, but the team Oregon
State has assembled this season is proving worthy of the comparison.
OSU fans want to know who is going to succeed the stars of last June's
College World Series victors -- Cole Gillespie, Jonah Nickerson, Kevin Gunderson, Tyler Graham, Shea McFeely, Dallas Buck, Bill Rowe, Chris Kunda

a corner, trying to figure out how to turn it
For the past four years, Kyle Jeffers poured his heart, soul and sweat into
the Oregon State men's basketball program.

of expectations. In fact, that was a recurring theme throughout the four-year
starter's college career ... more
