    Good opportunity for someone to cut their teeth covering a little bit of everything, including a Pac-12 program. Unless things have changed A LOT in the last few years, they are NOT a large paper in terms of newshole. And they do have to compete with larger papers on the OSU beat. But they do a pretty decent job with OSU for a staff their size.

    If you're tired of covering a football program with little or no media access and a coach who makes every aspect of your job harder than it needs to be, this is your dream job.

    Yeah, Mike Riley is great. Interviewed him in a bar once, just chatted up a storm and very candid.

    Oregon State overcomes its competitive disadvantage of open practices and talking about injuries to beat UCLA and likely move into Top 25.

    One of the best tweets of the 2012 season.

    Interesting. Wonder if someone left. Because just a few months ago, they laid off a reporter.

    Guess I could have done five minutes of investigative reporting to find out. Cliff Kirkpatrick is leaving to go to Alabama

    "Good opportunity for someone to cut their teeth covering a little bit of everything, including a Pac-12 program."

    This isn't the New York Times, but it's not an entry-level job by a long shot. And there's a wonderful candidate in a neighboring state if he wants to get back into the rat race of daily newspaper journalism. ;)

    They forgot to list sweeping the floor and taking out the garbage for Lee salary.

    To each his own. Mike Riley turned the Tide down, or so rumours have it. Corvallis ain't Manhattan, but it ain't Birmingham, either. Much more, um, laid back. Most of the nut cases are up the road in Eugene.
