NWSB blogger and Oregon State insider Jon Irwin reports on the areas he thinks OSU’s offense needs to improve in 2013. Mike Riley’s pro-style offense is deep in weapons, but it’s only effective if all the parts are working together. Without fixes to 2012’s problem areas, the team could be in for a disappointing season in 2013. Storm Woods (940 yards) was a huge reason for the turnaround, can it happen again?
