Stories from the rest of the sports
The OSU Men’s basketball team has officially started their practices. Oregon State basketball coach Craig Robinson had the guys doing a three minute drill of just passing the ball. His lines went like this:
“That’s too high….. Run through the line. Good….Good Seth…Good…That’s it!! It’s starting to look like something now.”
One of the first things Coach Robinson did was to become famous by talking at the Democratic Convention, and saying GO BEAVERS at the end of his speech. He did this on national TV with one of the largest audiences in history. OSU was shouted to the nation!! That caused enough stir that all the news stations presented it over and over again,
on national TV. OSU was shouted to the nation!! We will not know the ramifications of it for a while, but it sure didn’t hurt!!
You should get a real feel for OSU basketball by the end of this season. There are a record number of OSU basketball games televised this year. Seventeen games will be on the tube. Four of those games will be nationally on the FSN national network. Plenty of exposure, but what will people see?
They have their first official game November 14th against Howard University played at 4:00 P.M. at their court. They then play Big 12 teams Iowa State and Nebraska.
One highlight will be seeing Yale come to Gill on Monday November 24th. It will be played at 7:00 P.M.
I guess there is no sense hiding it any more. Bob DeCarolis is being considered for an opening at Ohio State University. Details are pretty sketchy at this point. I will just let you know it is happening, and we will see what unveils.
The Corvallis Gazette Times is covering it pretty closely if you want to check them out online.
Some past OSU baseball players are doing quite well in the minor leagues.
Tyler Graham had a banner year for the San Jose Giants. He stole 47 bases, and was injured part of the year.
Cole Gillespie has made quite an impact playing for the AA Huntsville Stars. He hit .281 with 14 home runs, and also had 39 doubles.
Kevin Gunderson pitched for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. He was moved up to the Mississippi Braves in AA ball.
Olivia Vivian is a freshman in OSU Gymnastics. She was late to practice at the beginning of the year. Why was that? She was competing in the Olympics for Australia. She had to make it through two different grueling trials to be selected for the Australian Olympic team. She made it and had an experience of a lifetime, competing in the Olympics.
