BEAVERBLITZ / RIVALS HISTORY

BEAVERBLITZ.COM and RIVALS.COM BACKGROUND

1999
In 1999 BeaverSportsCentral.com was launched on the Rivals Network by Ben Summers. Over the next two years it transitioned to Mike Denison and Alex Firth and was renamed pure-orange.net.

Those of us now operating BeaverBlitz frequented the original Rivals.com website. We enjoyed the Beaver community, recruiting news provided by Rivals, recruiting database, and the sports information that was shared by members. It was our intent to bring this back to other Beaver Fans who enjoyed recruiting and football news.

2000
The original Rivals.com format was not content or subscriber oriented, and the business model couldn't survive based on advertising. Rivals reopened under a stronger business management team and many of the same recruiting gurus (such as Bobby Burton) remained. However, Rivals.com was without an Oregon State presence.

In the autumn of 2000 a website called "Unofficial OSU Facilities" was created with the intention of improving the sports facilities at Oregon State. It was constructed by several people on BeaverBlitz staff and maintained for over a year. The Facilities site eventually faded as the BeaverBlitz concept was conceived.

2001
The original seed for this website was planted in the winter of 2001. After spending several months working on an operational plan and becoming NCAA Compliant, BeaverBlitz officially opened on March 1st, 2002. It was based solely on the efforts of volunteers and has established a strong connection with fans, the athletic department, BASF, and the sports programs.

2002
Rick Kimbrel joins the Rivals Team in 2002 to give the network a superior West Coast presence, and he's been an integral part of the effort at BeaverBlitz. Matt Mansfield becomes one of the core members at BeaverBlitz. Matt's expertise in recruiting knowledge and football go back to the original Rivals website and make him the perfect fit.

2003
This year brought more good news and resources to the BeaverBlitz community. Student Sports, the Nike Camps, and Greg Biggins join the Rivals family. Jeff Perry ("View from the 4th Street") and Matt Henderson ("Tale of the Tapes") begin volunteering with the site on a regular basis.

2004
BeaverBlitz is now the largest OSU Membership website on the internet, and the daily readership continues to grow. Biogeeks, provided by beevergeek, become an instant hit and the Recruiting War Room makes its first appearance. Todd McBeaver and Moose begin basketball coverage and analysis with the Basketball Tale of the Tape. Raju Woodward joins the team as a feature sports writer.

2005
This was another great year for the 'Blitz Community. BlitzArchive.com was created by Greg Perry, and it has become one of the most popular fan features. Casey Thomas takes over the anchorman position on the Daily Links, which continues to be the most visited Beaver Pages. Brad Hoiseth (JCGridiron.com) becomes Blitz's voice for JUCO Recruiting. The BeaverBlitz tailgaters and popularity swell. They culminated at the spring game when the Blitz Community packs a local PGE Park bar before the Spring Game.

2006
This becomes the best year on record for BeaverBlitz.com. Angie and Eric Machado add their talents to the daily operations of the website, and their connections and insight take the news and recruiting coverage to the next level. Dave Wilson is a savory addition to the Blitz Team by lending his BBQing skills and event planning.

2007
It was another great year for BeaverBlitz and the Beavers. Yahoo! became the marketing partner for Rivals.com and Jed Tai officially assumed the role of Recruiting Director with Angie and Eric's guidance. Barometer Sports Editor Sean McLean joins the Blitz team to write sports features.

2008
Angie, Eric, and Jed continue to focus on recruiting to make Blitz the best place to get the real scoop on Oregon State recruiting. The Blitz community thrives with the Spring Tailgater and reintroduced chat sessions.

2009
BeaverBlitz welcomed Adam and Anthony to the team and enjoyed its best year of recruiting coverage. Our fantastic photographer Liza brought a new twist to recruiting coverage with shots of recruits on official visits.

2010
Travis brought his pen and paper to the BeaverBlitz Team to increase coverage during spring and summer football camp.After many years of hard work, it was announced that the Nike Football Camp would be held at Oregon State University in the spring of 2010.
