The Oregon State Beavers have received their first two signed commitments for the 2011 recruiting class today. Rusty Fernando, a DE/LB, will have three years to play two. He comes out of Glendale CC in Arizona. He appears to be the better "get". The other commitment comes from Blake Harrah, a DE out of Saddleback CC in California.
Mike Riley has said that he is focusing on JC players for the defensive front seven to make up for the losses of Gabe Miller, Stephen Paea, Brennan Olander, Dwight Roberson, and Keith Pankey.

Stephen Paea has been named a first team all-american by the Associated Press. Paea is joined on the first team by fellow Pac Ten players Chase Beeler of Stanford (C) and LaMichael James of Oregon (RB). Andrew Luck of Stanford (QB) and Cliff Harris of Oregon (CB made the second team. Caleb Schlauderaff of Utah (OG), Mason Foster of Washington (LB), Akeem Ayers of UCLA (LB), and Rahim Moore of UCLA (S) were all named to the third team.
And sorry for the bizarre layout with the youtube clip. I'm not smart enough to make it fit properly so live with it. Is there no satisfying you people?!?!

Oregon State has announced that they will kick off their 2011 football season against....Sacramento State!. Woo!!! Woo? Well, it should be a win at least. Ted Miller has the complete Pac 12 out of conference schedule for next season.
And honestly, that was the best I could do when I typed "sacramento state cheerleaders" into Google Images. So don't complain.

That is all. I'd be happy to talk about the game if anyone has questions or thoughts but I'd rather dedicate my time in the coming days/weeks/months to recruiting and the 2011 season. Here is a list of current verbal commitments for 2011. I will tell you who they are soon.

...right? Phil Steele has announced his All-Conference teams. The Beavers that made it are as follows:
1st Team: Joe Halahuni (TE), Stephen Paea (DT), James Dockery (CB)
2nd Team: Jacquizz Rodgers (RB), Michael Phillipp (OT), Dwight Roberson (LB)
3rd Team: Alex Linnenkohl (C), Jordan Poyer (KR), Lance Mitchell (S)
4th Team: Markus Wheaton (WR), Brennan Olander (DT), Keith Pankey (LB), Brandon Hardin (CB)
I don't have time to analyze who got screwed (cough*Quizz*cough) or who got lucky (cough*toomanytomention*cough). Hopefully I can offer some analysis later. Remember, this isn't the official honorees, just one man's opinion. (via Cliff Kirkpatrick)

I have to be honest here. I am not overly optimistic about the Beavers' chances on Saturday against the Ducks. Oregon's criminal Heisman candidate tailback is very good. So is their first year starting quarterback, Darron Thomas. But if it was only the seemingly superior talent that the Ducks would be putting on the field this weekend, I would hold a shred of hope. But no, it is much more than that. Chip Kelly has taken the immense talent at his disposal and created a monster.
