Hardin Rehab Estimated To Take Most Of Season

Brandon Hardin's shoulder surgery went well, but rehab is expected to take up the regular season.

Oregon St. senior cornerback Brandon Hardin's surgery Thursday in Seattle went well, but word out of the Valley Football Center today is that Hardin will still miss probably the entire regular season.

Hardin had a screw inserted into a chipped bone in his shoulder, and head coach Mike Riley said it looks like a 99% chance Hardin will be out for the season, but noted that may not include the post-season.

"I've thought about that," Riley said. "It would be good for NFL people to see him on the field at least once."

Timing matters, and Riley felt it would to be an after Christmas bowl for enough time to pass.

It's a good time to review the Pac-12's bowl tie-ins this year (In reverse order of selection).

Glidan New Mexico Bowl in Albuquerque, NM - Dec.17

Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco -Dec. 31

MAACO Las Begas Bowl - Dec. 22

Hyundai Sun Bowl in El Paso, TX - Dec. 31

Bridgeport Education Holiday Bowl in San Diego -Dec. 28

Valero Alamo Bowl in San Antonio -Dec. 29

Rose Bowl in Pasadena - Jan. 2

And of course, there could be a second BCS bowl, on Jan. 2, 3, 4, or 9, for some team again this season.

Sounds like as good a reason as any for the Beavers to win their way into one of the better bowls!
