— A nice profile on Oregon State standout defensive end Scott Crichton, a Tacoma native who could see some time a tight end Saturday, too. From Lindsay Schnell’s story:
Scott says his decision came down to four schools: OSU, Oregon, Washington State and Idaho. He was not recruited by Washington, which prompted him last season to say with disgust, “Man, I HATE U-dub.”
It was a comment that didn’t sit well with some at Oregon State — it’s all well and good to dislike your rival, but there’s a time and place, and interviews are not it — and it has made Crichton somewhat leery of opening up to the media. On Wednesday he confessed that he grew up a Texas fan (like so many others, he fell in love with the Longhorns after watching Vince Young) and admitted that somewhere buried in his closet is some UT gear.
Any UW shirts back there, too, considering his hometown of Tacoma is just 34 miles from Seattle?
“I burned them,” he deadpanned, before bursting into a wide grin.
