I Broke The Beaver Dam

What started as a message board rumor has become something that is all but official. According to a well-known source: The Oregon State Beavers will invade Beaver Stadium next year, replacing Arkansas State as our Sept. 6th opponent.

Assuming nothing falls apart in the 11th hour, this is a big boost to the non-conference portion of next year’s schedule as we actually have a legitimate opponent on there to accompany the shit-tastic programs that are Coastal Carolina, Syracuse, and Temple. Not to mention the fact, it’s been a while since we last took on a Pac-10 team, I believe the disastrous 2000 Kickoff Classic against USC was the last time.

It also looks like this is a one-shot deal as there doesn’t appear to be a return trip to Corvallis in 2009, which prompted a highly original “JoePa is old” joke out of the aforementioned Oregon State blogger.

Think about it. Joe Paterno is, what, 94 years old? … he couldn’t handle a plane ride that long, or the potentially wet weather in the NW. … plays havoc with creaky joints, don’t you know.
