Corvallis

I don't understand why people keep saying that "Corvallis is not attractive, which means that OSU cannot do any better." A while back, my family and I drove through Nebraska, and there was absolutely nothing there that would make me want to go back there, and this was the following spring after the Cornhuskers shared the national title with Michigan. In other words, Nebraska does not have anything attractive in the state, and yet their football team won multiple national championships. Penn State is more isolated than Corvallis, yet they were a powerhouse for many years. The state of Alabama has nothing but a reputation of being a focal point for race relations, yet both the Crimson Tide and Tigers have won national championships. No, I'm not asking for a national championship, but I want a team that will actually compete for a Rose Bowl berth pretty frequently. And I have stated this many times over and I will state it again anyway: it wasn't too long ago that Eugene was in the exact same boat, but they did something about it. What did they do? They started winning, and the money came with it for years to come. Winning fixes everything. Arizona State, one of several teams in the conference that made a coaching change in the last 2 years, will be hosting the conference championship game. Yep, the Sun Devils, a team in a desert wasteland, will be hosting the Pac-12 title game. The mindset of thinking that it is impossible to do better has to end. That mindset is what is hurting the Beavers.
