The final parags:

Unheralded kids from the Pacific Northwest made up the foundation of the 2006-07 championship teams. High-profile recruits started to be drawn to Oregon State, and Casey said a sense of entitlement crept into the program. The Beavers didn’t make the NCAA tournament in 2008, and they’ve lost in regionals the last two years. “I never felt they really got the grasp of what it took to be a winner,” Casey said. “We had personalities that put themselves ahead of our team, and their draft status and advancement in pro baseball got ahead of taking care of business as a college athlete.”

I got that feeling too, sorry to say, and I won't point a finger at any of the players, but I'm much happier with the kids Casey has this year than (some on) the crew for the last couple seasons. And yes, this team feels a lot like the 2005 team to me.
