CWS: Nodding off in the press box

By Lindsay Schnell - June 21, 2006

Remember in the Stanford Super Regional when everyone was falling asleep because the Beavers were just dominating the Cardinal?

I'm thinking OSU must have watched that game tape last night for some inspiration because the same thing is taking place right now. The Beavers look great. Everyone is swinging the bat well -- including catcher Mitch Canham, who has been due for a hit and Darwin Barney who has now hit two games in a row after a mini-slump -- and Mike Stutes is throwing the game of his life.

I'm beginning to think -- as I'm sure many others are -- that the opener against Miami was nothing more than a fluke. Yes, Scott Maine had a lot to do with that but Oregon State didn't swing the bat like it had been and was not agressive. OSU coach Pat Casey had a little chat with his guys about that and it seems to be paying off.

I know it would be a tough road to come through and win it all, but man, the Beavers look like they could do it right now.
