Eastern kicks off college season tonight


We’re starting with the Eagles today because they open the season tonight (7) at Oregon State – and because Dave Trimmer posted a blog entry already. Check there for links to stories from the OSU perspective – there are a lot.

The Eastern game is on TV (Fox Sports Northwest) and we’ll be watching, though I’m headed out to Albi first and will DVR the first half. After the game is over, I’ll drop some opinions on to this site.

But let’s get to the pregame show. Trimmer looked back today at the last time EWU and OSU met, back when Dennis Erickson was the Beaver coach. That 2000 season opener was won by the Beavers 21-19, and Oregon State coach Mike Riley is trying to get his team to learn from it.

I think they will. Couple that with all the changes the Eagles are instituting – most notably at quarterback – it looks like OSU will roll. Call it Oregon State 35, Eastern 14.
