Oregon State news:
This piece headlines the fact that the squad will practice against men, but that’s probably the least interesting piece of info there. More juicy is that the new team will be short, and Coach Scott Rueck still needs one more assistant.
Walk-ons can make an impact this year, including a player Rueck coached at his former school…..strange.
