No Rotation for Katz

With the season ending injury to Lyle Moevao, the question arose this morning at the weekly press conference in the Valley Football Center as to whether Oregon St. would look to work Ryan Katz, now the backup to QB Sean Canfield, into a rotation to get him some snaps, but Coach Mike Riley ruled that out.

We are not planning any sort of rotation. We will (continue to) do whatever we have to that gives us the best chance to win the game at hand. We will try to get him a lot of work in practice. Ryan played about half the game against Portland St., and if we get an opportunity like that, it would be great. But there's no plan for a set number of plays, or a series.

That's consistent with Riley's historic approach, of going almost exclusively with whomever the starter is at quarterback, except in the latter parts of lopsided games, something the Beavers aren't likely to find themselves in, except possibly in Pullman.

The process is still in the works to petition the NCAA for a hardship second red-shirt season for Moevao, but the outcome of that will be well down the line in any event.
