Inside the Pac-12: Contender building in the Northwest

When Pat Casey built Oregon State into a perennial contender, he did so with Pacific Northwest recruits. From 2005-07, the Beavers appeared in three straight College World Series, winning two titles, and had Oregonians as the Friday night starters each year.
