Early Season Computer Polls are Awesome

The Massey poll is one of the six BCS computers. After four weeks, it has one school from the state of Oregon at #1 and the other school at #17. Fairly consistent with the other polls, right?

Craig Robinson Receives Contract Extension

After posting the first 20 win season in 22 years at Oregon St., men's basketball Coach Craig Robinson has been rewarded with a 1 year contract extension. The Beavers also led the PCC/AAWU/Pac-8/-10/-12 in scoring for the first time ever this past year. "I'm honored that the university made the commitment to another year for me and my family, and for my staff and for this program," Robinson said. "We're heading in the right direction. This will help me recruit kids because there are always people out there saying `this is Coach Robinson's last year; he's going to move on and go somewhere else.' This helps me when I'm recruiting kids to let them know that I plan on being here for the next five years; so their entire time here as a student-athlete." Robinson's deal now runs through the 2016-17 season.
