Quick Links: Will The Real QB1 Please Stand Up?

Spring football is somehow almost done...OSU basketball is wooing a strong JUCO prospect...Game of Thrones references. Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Oregon State football hasn’t won very many games recently. One of the first steps to fixing that is finding a starting quarterback who can excel consistently. The Statesman Journal did a nice job diving deep into that task ahead of Coach Smith these next few months. The football team’s depth at defensive back took a slight hit over the weekend. Redshirt freshman safety Braelen Bettles announced on his Twitter page that he will...
