Sunshine and sloppiness rule Day 11

The sun finally came back out today, allowing the Oregon State football team to
practice outdoors for the first time in over a week. But maybe the players were
too excited, because they looked sloppy today, especially on offense. Of course,
this drew the ire of the coaching staff, which hadn't been too impressed

today.


- Sean Canfield has pretty much locked up the starting job if spring
is any indication. He ran the first team offense exclusively today, while Lyle Moevao worked with the second string. Moevao, who had been improving, seemed
to regress today. He threw a lot of passes into coverage and had at least one
pass intercepted. He would have had more, but the defenders dropped the ball.
He especially struggled during the two minute drill inside the 20. He had no

double covered, adjusted his route to come back to the ball.
