Thurst into the starting job early in 2011, Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion had to develop on the run. Entering this year's spring practice as "the guy," Mannion has worked hard on his decision-making and accuracy. The results appear favorable, though not as consistent as the coaching staff would like.
With the Beavers running game still tenuous, Mannion will again get a chance to throw the ball a lot in 2012. If OSU can run it, so much the better. He's looked good so far this spring, but has struggled with consistency, so that's still a work in progress.
