Sunday Poll Recap

We asked and you answered, Beaver Nation.

After Florida parted ways with head coach Jim McElwain on Sunday, we posed a question to all of you out there. Should Oregon State go out and hire McElwain as the next leader of the Beavers program? Or should the Beavers look in a different direction?

More than 300 votes later, you’ve clearly made your decision. With an overwhelming 63% of the votes, Beaver Nation has made it clear that they don’t think Oregon State should hire Jim McElwain as their next head coach.
