- Oregon State football played their annual spring game over the weekend and the offense was the main talking point. Conor Blount, Jake Luton, and Jack Colletto are still fighting for the starting job. Blount, however, really looked the part with two touchdown passes. The 6’1” sophomore could get his shot at the big time in the fall if he keeps it up, particularly if Luton can’t get back to where he was prior to his spinal injury.

Check out OregonLive’s highlights below and see for yourself! Though as a whole, there’s definitely more that needs to improve if Oregon State wants to upset Ohio State, as we all fully expect to happen...
- On the basketball side of things, former Oregon State player and Memphis Grizzlies head coach J.B. Bickerstaff had his interim tag removed. Bickerstaff agreed to a three year deal with the team late last week. The Grizz were 15-48 under Bickerstaff this year and finished 22-60 overall. Bickerstaff played at OSU from 1997 to 1999 before finishing his career at Minnesota. SBN’s Memphis Grizzlies site Grizzly Bear Blues has been talking quite a bit about this over the last week or so, so feel free to check that out.
- In terms of Beavs making the jump to the NFL, a few have signed UDFA deals in the last few days. The most recent one was defensive tackle Paisa Savea heading to the Chiefs.
- On the baseball side of things, we recapped each of the games in this past weekend’s Arizona State series. The Corvallis Gazette-Times talked about the series too, particularly how so many different faces stepped up in the final game.
Monday is also the anniversary of Josh Osich’s no-hitter against UCLA back in 2011, so there’s that.
