Not much for actual news today but hey - who cares about news when you have RUMORS! Woooooooooo!!!!
- Scott Crichton is a 6-3, 225 lb. DE from Washington. Most recruiting services have him listed at about a 3-star prospect, for what that's worth. He runs a 4.6 40, which is fast for a dude that big. He also committed to the Beavers yesterday. And, as photo evidence will show, he's a total bad ass who will break your arms off if you look at him wrong.
This is Scott's "Don't steal my laptop" look. I think it probably works.
He might not be old enough to buy a lottery ticket yet, but I'd say that's the dude I want on my side when the poop hits the fan. Kid looks serious and sounds like a great prospect, the kind of recruit that has been Riley and Co's bread and butter. According to Buker, the Ducks think he's pretty great too and since yesterday, have offered. Crichton has allegedly said he'll honor his commitment to OSU and ignore overtures from UO, WSU and UW, but we won't know for sure until February 3.
- USA Today has a recruiting article that covers the uncommitted recruits out there. Sadly, the colorful graphs, pictures an illustrations that have made USA Today so awesome aren't a part of this one. Anyway, they're guessing that Owa goes to Nebraska (boooooooo) and that Bernard becomes a 'Heel... which would suck.
- Men's hoops clash with SC tonight. Here's the USC student paper and OSU's Barometer. This one's actually on real live TV (looks like it fires up at about 5:30ish), so tune into FSN, mute the TV and turn Mike Parker up. He'll be slightly ahead of the action but then again, isn't he always?
- Cliff K. from The GT had a story about the donations Yve collected for Haiti. Here's a video he had on his blog (below). Let it be a reminder that there's still more need and any little bit you can spare is going to really help out a neighbor in need.
GO BEAVERS and post anything I missed below.
Eastern Washington University is moving forward with its project to switch from natural to RED turf. What would be your reaction if OSU made a switch to orange turf?
