The Oregon State football team will help give publicity to the Oregon State University Robotics Club on Wednesday in Reser Stadium or the indoor center, depending on weather.
After practice the club will drive its Mars Rover over more than 32 players and coaches. The point of that is to break the school record.
Here are some leftover notes from defensive coordinator Mark Banker after last Wednesday’s workout.
Banker’s view of the DBs is good. It’s all about consistency. The secondary is made up of veterans who know what to do. They just can’t take a play off.
“We’ll see when we go against the best athletes in the Pac-10,” Banker said. “It’s all about consistency, but we’ll be OK.”
CB Brandon Hardin had a good day a practice, so his name was brought up. He appears to be settling in as a big-play guy.
“The only thing he needs to do is play with his hips down more,” Banker said. “Then make every play 100 percent. He can’t fall into that hang loose mentality of his Hawaiian ancestry.”
And here’s a link to my Friday story in the GT, which is a look at the DEs. The bottom line is OSU is confident in Gabe Miller and Taylor Henry as starters, but depth is still being developed.
And JC transfer Dominic Glover has to make an impact. That is, as long as he’s not another Simi Kuli.
And this has nothing to do with anything, but it’s just funny.
