Many of the same people who stood and applauded when Scott Rueck was introduced as Oregon State's new head coach nearly four years ago were gathered again this week in the loge area of Reser Football Stadium.
But instead of cheering for their pleading hope of things to come, they were there to celebration its fruition.
"We had about 400 people there," Rueck said. "It was great to experience that. There was a lot of joy in people's faces."
