- The folks over at BeaverBlitz caught up with head coach Gary Andersen on the first day of Fall Camp in Bend, to hear what he had to say about how the team looks so far.
- One very strange situation surrounding Oregon State’s Fall Camp has been the departure of defensive lineman Isaac Garcia from the program, chronicled here in a practice recap from the Oregonian. One thing that head coach Gary Andersen seems to be adamant about (in the excerpt below) is that Garcia leaving the program was in no way involved with any type of academic or off-the-field issue in any way.
- Former Oregon State stand-out Marcus Greaves has turned himself into a “football analyst” for BeaversEdge, where he’s reported that some new faces are starting to make some waves as the first week of August comes into view. Apparently, talents like linebackers Kesi Ah-Hoy and Wesley Payne, as well as offensive tackle Trent Moore are players to watch going forward.
- While Oregon State alum Jacquizz Rodgers has grown accustomed to his second-fiddle role in the backfield for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team’s GM Jason Licht is not so sure that Rodgers will strictly be a reserve for too much longer. According to a statement he made to ESPN over the weekend, Licht expressed how the starting running back job won’t simply be handed back to Doug Martin upon his return from a three-game suspension. Simply put, the door looks to be a bit ajar for Rodgers at the moment.
- And finally, we leave you with this tweet from PFF College Football, that shows just how elusive Oregon State running back Ryan Nall was last season, compared to some of the other top talents in the country.
Of all FBS running backs that logged a minimum of 25% of their team's snaps, Oregon State's Ryan Nall was the most elusive of them all. pic.twitter.com/WGV1EngRQd— PFF College Football (@PFF_College) July 29, 2017
