Quick Links: OSU Softball Coach Laura Berg Is Headed Back To The Olympics

Congrats Coach! Plus, the future of men’s basketball is looking up and football camp is winding down.

Olympic Team Media Summit
  • High fives are in order for the leader of the Oregon State Beavers softball program. Head coach Laura Berg is also the head coach of the USA Softball women’s national team. This past week, the American’s won the women’s world championship, which punched their ticket to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Berg played in the Olympics four times with Team USA before becoming a coach. Our letter to add orange and black to Team USA’s uniforms has not yet been answered.

  • You could say that basketball recruiting is going well right now. Recently, the program moved up to #15 in 247 Sports 2019 recruiting rankings. So far, that class is composed of three three-star players: point guard Gianni Hunt, combo guard Jarod Lucas, and small forward Julien Franklin.

  • In the latest football practice report from The Oregonian, Jack Colletto offered his thoughts on the quarterback battle and injuries are creating some issues with depth in the defensive backfield.

  • With the tight ends and Tuli Wily-Matagi now medically retired, the Beavers are going to need some help from young guys like Bryce Bramscher and Jack Holum to back up Noah Togiai. Steve Gress of the Corvallis Times-Gazette explored that yesterday.

  • SBN’s Pac-12 community ranked the defensive units in the conference. The Beavs are ranked last, but what else is new? It is an interesting roundup of what each defense is bringing into this season.
