NWSB Insider and Oregon St. Beavers blogger Rick Stella asks the most important question out of the state of Oregon since the inception of the state itself, can Cody Vaz take over for Sean Mannion and lead this Beavers team to more wins?

OSU’s Mike Riley continues to transform the Beavers into a threat

Mike Riley

NWSB Writer Blair Thomas talks about Mike Riley, head coach of the Oregon State Beavers football program. Upon his first arrival in 1997-98, Riley went 8-14 in a pair of seasons, and went 5-6 in just his second season as head coach in 1998, before leaving to coach the San Diego Chargers in 1999. The significance of a five-win season cannot be lost in the defense of Riley because of the inability to get one in Corvallis during a quarter-century before his arrival.
