Nov. 13, 2000
CORVALLIS, Ore. - On Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. PT, Oregon State tight end Marty Maurer will make a special visit to talk about the 'CivilWar,'.
For one day in the state of Oregon, the population is divided. That one daythis year is Nov. 18, when the Ducks travel to Oregon State in a battle oftop-10 teams, with major bowl implications at stake.
No one knows more about the Civil War than Maurer. His father, Andy, is aformer tight end at Oregon and had a successful NFLcareer. His two uncles played at Oregon State, making this one of thebiggest days of the year for Maurer family.
'On this day you are not a fan of Portland State, Western Oregon, SouthernOregon, whatever,' Maurer says. 'You are a Beaver or a Duck.'
Maurer is the Beavers' starting tight end, and has become one of the keyreceivers in the Beaver offense. He ranks third on the team with 28 receptions,including 12 over the last four games. Maurer also made a key block thatsprung Oregon State running back Ken Simonton for the winning touchdown inthe epic 44-41 double-overtime Civil War victory at Reser Stadium two yearsago.
Maurer won't be stopping by ESPN.com until 12:30 p.m. PT Tuesday, but feel free toleave your questions now and we will save them for his arrival.
