Agnew's transfer is a win-win. He will get playing time, Beavs free up a scholarship and the depth chart. Chris Brown will likely get his playing time next year. Agnew was actually a very good runner, but could not block, stay healthy, or hold onto the ball.
All indications are the logo we saw here is the finished product or something close to it. I agree with those who said it looks better than the current logo on helmets but worse on merchandise. Overall a C+ effort. I'll take pretty much anything over the cartoon Beaver, even if it's a hockey logo with no message or identity. It should modernize OSU's look and be more attractive nationally. But I don't think the logo represents the essence of the University, and I fret I won't live long enough to see one that does. OSU administration and Nike reminds me of a patient/doctor relationship…OSU's branding is sick, Nike claims to have the cure, OSU is so desperate they submit to bad treatment.
Baseball team moves to #4 in the Baseball America Poll and USA Today poll. Nothing to add since it's a fair ranking. I thought the pre-season ranking was a bit high (I was thinking more like #15), but so far it is justified. Obviously conference play will be the true test. Gotta say that I am impressed with the bullpen thus far (my biggest concern). Clutch hitting and team speed are still suspect. Beavs lack a true leadoff hitter, too. That Dylan Davis maturing into a true cleanup hitter might gloss over some of the chinks.
