Oregon State coach Mike Riley and line coach Mike Cavanaugh are excited about the prospects of first-year starting left guard Mike Andrews. A year ago, the Beavers were a bit soft up front, with a lack of attack mentality. Riley and Cavanaugh are anxious to see Andrews and his effect on the line. He does not lack the killer instinct.
An improved offensive line will go a long way towards softening the blow of Jacquizz Rodgers' departure.
