Sure, preparation for the 113th Civil War began last week as Oregon State enjoyed it's final bye of the season, and normal game preparation kicked off Saturday after the Beavers took three days off for Thanksgiving. But we've arrived at the beginning of the real Civil War week, and expect things to crank up a notch around BtD.
Everyone is back in Corvallis now, and all hands are on deck as the team prepares for Thursday's colossal game.
I can assure you that the BtD crew will be working hard to provide you with quality reading material in this four-day span before kickoff. If you have any story ideas or have a suggestion of what you'd like us to cover, don't hesitate to send your tip to the e-mail address below.

It's the way Mike Riley would want it, after all.
