Open Letter To Oregon State Fans

Sept. 15, 2002


On behalf of the football team, the coaches and athletic department, I want to thank you for all the enthusiastic support you have given over the first three weeks of the season. Based on our quick start we feel very good about the direction of Oregon State Football.

The purpose of this letter is to remind everyone of the way OSU fans have conducted themselves in the past and how we must continue to be the first-class fans for which Beaver Nation has been applauded in recent seasons.

Do we want our team 'flying around' and playing with intensity? Absolutely! Do we want our fans to be loud and supportive? Absolutely! Having said that, we want to compete both on and off the field with class and dignity, sportsmanship and respect.

In closing, I want to thank you again for your tremendous support and hope to see you throughout this season.

Go Beavers!

Bob De Carolis

Athletic Director
