Hot Cougar Action: Mike Riley talks Cougs

Mike Riley discussed what he expects to see when the Cougars face the Beavers on Saturday.

Jaime Valdez-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

While Mike Leach is probably the most entertaining coach in the Pac-12, he's not the only one who holds weekly interviews. As shocking as it may sound, Oregon State coach Mike Riley also speaks to the media and while he may not talk about Gunsmoke or B12 shots, he did have a few things to say about WSU.

Below is some of what Riley had to say, you can read more from Cliff Kirkpatrick of the Corvallis Gazette-Times.

On WSU's special teams play:

"We are going to see the best special teams unit we’ve faced so far this year. They are good and well-coached on special teams."

On WSU's offense:

"They obviously can throw the ball and complete passes. They move the ball and have been very good against good people."

On Travis Long

"And they have one of the best players we've seen so far in Travis Long playing."

On Marquess Wilson

"He's been a great player for a long time. He has a big body and he's a phenomenal deep ball player. You have to do a good job on him all the way around."
