But that doesn’t mean there isn’t enough data to start assessing the performance thus far of every team, player and coach in the NFL. And when the grades start getting compiled, there are some dismal marks on the report. Slow starts abound around the league. Who falls into this category...

Ex-DeLaSalle star Travis confident, excited to play for Stanford

Reid Travis looks only slightly different after a summer preparing for the next step of his basketball journey. There's a little more muscle on that wiry, 6-foot-8 frame. His knees are working better after arthroscopic surgery to clean up one of them in July. But that clean-cut, boyish, smiling face hasn't gone anywhere. Neither has the confidence the DeLaSalle star-turned...

BASTA: Army Cannot Keep Pace With High Flying Cardinal in 35-0 Romp

((HT: BASTA/Ben Leonard))After a heart-wrenching loss to USC, Stanford needed a morale booster. The Army Black Knights certainly provided that.

Stanford punted on four of its first six possessions...

Army Punter Drops Stanford Defender (Video)

We always see kickers getting abused in football, but that’s not the case for Army punter Alex Tardieu. He’s an army cadet, so he’s not going to let down his fellow servicemen by getting clowned. Stanford safety Kodi Whitfield learned this the hard way when Tardieu dropped him like he was feather. Keep in mind Whitfield is 6’2″ 204 lbs. [h/t SB Nation]

The NFL season may have officially kicked off this past weekend, but that doesn’t mean that many of the league’s players weren’t still caught up in the college game.

Southern Cal-Stanford Preview

David Shaw and Steve Sarkisian made clear that any animosity between them is history now that the latter has moved on to coach at Southern California. Of more concern to both is how a potential matchup between Trojans defensive end Leonard Williams and Stanford left tackle Andrus Peat will affect this weekend's Pac-12 matchup.
