TEAMS:
Stanford players are just nerds, there’s no way around it. But they are also pretty good at football too, and last night they knocked off the Oregon Ducks yet again, hanging on for a 26-20 win. After the win, the players weren’t done entertaining though — they decided to wear taped nerd glasses in their postgame interviews with the media, just to embrace the Stanford stereotype: One more photo of Stanford’s @ShayneSkov11, @AJTarpley, and @TyGaff dressed as nerds at the presser. pic.twitter.com/KFSh6ZmLt0 — David Lombardi (@DavidMLombardi) November 8, 2013 Adding a little insult to injury for Oregon? Admittedly, this is the type of funny, clever move that should probably be expected from the Cardinal. Meanwhile, the Ducks will have to try their luck against those nerds again next time — nerds!

Fear the Tree: Tyler Gaffney and the Stanford Cardinal Manhandle the Oregon Ducks

All the talk about Stanford Cardinal football players being soft should be put to rest as the Cardinal grinded out an impressive 26-20 win over the Oregon Ducks. In front of a raucous crowd at Stanford stadium, the Cardinal proved that the ground and pound running game was too much for the speedy Oregon Ducks. Senior running back Tyler Gaffney brought his lunch pail to work as he...

This Stanford bro is wearing quite the inappropriate shirt

Well I think this may be a little inappropriate for a football game. Others may have a different opinion.

Stanford fan savages Oregon with brilliant 'GameDay' sign

No. 2 Oregon and No. 5 Stanford may not kick off for a few more hours here, but fans are getting some trash talk in early. One Cardinal supporter came up with a pretty clever little GameDay sign ahead of tonight’s matchup. It’s a safe bet that it doesn’t get through security, however. I’m weak at this @CollegeGameDay sign via @georgewhitfield #FightOn pic.twitter.com/X5zqrsPdNG...

Stanford Rant: Hunting Geese

Let me just start by saying, YEEEEEAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!! #FearTheTree. What a game by our Stanford Cardinal! The defense was lights out only giving up 13 offensive points to an Oregon team that averaged north of 50 and is second in the nation in scoring. The offensive line punched those geese in the mouth all game! I loved it! As Stanford fans, we all owe Tyler Gaffney at least a thank...

Stanford players trolled Oregon with nerdy looks

So Stanford beat Oregon Thursday night. Raise your hand if you weren’t surprised? *Raises hand! The best thing to come out of the win for the Cardinal was not only a shot at a BCS game but a little bit of trolling after De’Anthony Thomas suggested that the Ducks would lay 40. The game that ended up being sort of close, really wasn’t. Stanford dominated. Another one bites the...

Stanford Linebacker Shayne Skov Mocks De’Anthony Thomas On Twitter

Memo to De’Anthony Thomas – it’s always best to do your trash talking after the game. Thomas, a star running back for Oregon, made some noise earlier this week when he told reporters that the Ducks “should at least put up 40″ on Stanford. Well, given that his team only put up 20 last night (and didn’t score in the first three quarters), Cardinal linebacker Skayne Skov...

Gridiron geeks: Stanford players dress as nerds for post-game press conference

As one of the preeminent academic institutions in the country, Stanford sometimes gets saddled with the reputation of being a place full of nerds -- a reputation these two guys studying in the bleachers during Thursday night's game certainly contributed to. But as the Cardinal proved yet again during that game -- a 26-20, season-killing win over Pac-12 rival Oregon -- the university...

Stanford players dressed as nerds after beating Oregon (PHOTO)

Chalk one up for the Jonathan Martins of the sports world. Stanford already won the game with its physically dominating performance on both sides of the ball in the 26-20 win against the favored Oregon team. But some Stanford players gave fans a memorable reminder of what the school really represents in their postgame media presser. When asked why the players were wearing...

Stanford clips Ducks' wings again

Tyler Gaffney ran for 157 yards and No. 5 Stanford hammered No. 3 Oregon for three quarters, then held off a furious final kick by the Ducks to crush their national title hopes for a second straight season, this time with a 26-20 victory Thursday night.
