Tons of Oregon State news this week

While most Beaver fans are anxiously waiting for the Oregon State football season to start, there is still quite a bit of Oregon State-related news this week. Men and women’s basketball news, anonymous football quotes and more!

The team at Athlon Sports released their annual Pac-12 “Coaches talk anonymously about Conference foes”. Overall, fellow coaches were a lot kinder to Oregon State than I expected. Here’s one quote that particularly stood out to me: “Jonathan Smith has a ton of respect around the league. No one’s questioning the plan or the scheme, it’s just a matter of if they can ever build out enough talent. As an assistant coach, he was a pretty quiet guy who didn’t really want the spotlight, and he’s putting that personality into the program. He played there, he knows what they can be, but he also has to know how small their margins are.” Read the full story here.

According to OregonLive’s, Nick Daschel, Oregon State has rounded out their roster for Basketball after securing a verbal commitment from Roman Silva. Roman is a 7-foot-1, 265-pound center from San Bernardino Valley College. He orginially started his career with UTEP before leaving during his freshman season. Roman will have two remaining years of eligibility with the Beavers.

Michael Conforto made some history the other day hitting his 100th home run with the Mets (he actually hit two on the day #100 & #101). He became just the 3rd NY Mets player to hit that milestone prior to his 27th birthday, joining David Wright and Darryl Strawberry.

Yesterday, the Pac-12 revealed the conference match-ups for the 2019-20 women’s basketball season. Check out Oregon State’s tentative schedule here.
