Coach Kelly Sullivan sent out another updated photo.
Many of you on the blog debated the last time I had a track post about the importance of a track and a men’s team. However, I’ve learned that it’s good PR if you have one in the area.
And there are a few football players — WRs, RBs, DBs — who can make use of the opportunity to compete and work on speed in the winter and spring.
There are also a few recruits you can entice with the opportunity to run track and play football. Will there be a lot of them? No, but some.
Many fans have the belief that it’s not one of the major sports — football, men’s hoops — then any money and time spent on anything else is a waste and don’t like OSU’s plan for a broad athletic program with success in as many sports as possible.
Baseball has been a source of pride for the university for many years. Gymnastics is the most consistently good program. Even softball had a long recent run of success, and both soccer teams are on the way up.
My point is there are various athletes trying to be the best they can be. On this blog and in the GT, they just happen to have Oregon State on their chest. So here’s a track update.
