They are looking to be just as dominant in 2016 and they have gotten off to a good start. The team had one of the best recruiting classes in the conference and they just added on another piece.

Iowa Politician Proposes Bill Cutting Ties With Stanford After Rose Bowl Band Incident

It’s not a secret to anyone that has watched a football game involving the Stanford Cardinal that their marching band likes to push the envelope that not conform to what you would think a normal marching band is like.

Ranking most likely Super Bowl 50 MVP candidates

Whichever team wins the NFL championship is headed to Disney World, but only one player can take the Super Bowl 50 MVP trophy along for the ride. The showdown between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos isn’t exactly a star-studded matchup to the casual fan, so name power basically only applies to the quarterbacks on both sides. Be sure to watch for these players regardless because...

New Iowa Senate bill demands apology from Stanford for band’s Rose Bowl lampoon

The Stanford band pisses people off. Their performance at this year’s Rose Bowl was no different. With the Cardinal up 35-0, the band added insult to injury for the thousands of Iowa fans at the game and watching at home. In what is best described as a tongue-in-cheek tribute, the band made Hawkeye fans unreasonably angry. Stanford Band Halftime Checklist...

4-Star OT Devery Hamilton switches from Michigan commitment to Stanford

Let the circus begin. With the season dissipating to a gauzy memory, college teams are centering their attack on solidifying and signing their incoming recruits for 2016. It’s one thing to get a verbal commitment, it’s another to actually, like negotiations with a free agent, get the name on the dotted line. Unfortunately, when you’re dealing with an 18 year old, you’re confronting...

Stanford QB Kevin Hogan’s farewell to 'The Farm'

How do you say goodbye to someone like Stanford Cardinal quarterback Kevin Hogan? Do you say it softly, with a quiet reverence to properly honor the legacy he is leaving behind? Do you say it swiftly and confidently, like a mic drop — an homage to both the way the fifth-year senior came onto the Stanford scene and the way he left it? Or do you say it smugly, secure in the fact...

Stanford OL: Big Ten 'got exposed' during bowl season

This year’s Big Ten title game was comprised of two teams–Iowa and Michigan State–that lost by a combined 67 points during bowl games against Stanford and Alabama.

After the 45-16 rout of Iowa was over, Stanford offensive lineman Kyle Murphy...

Stanford band trolls Iowa with 'Farmers Only' halftime show

The Rose Bowl started off with a bang thanks to Heisman Trophy finalist and Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey’s electrifying 75-yard touchdown catch.

Things only got worse for Hawkeyes fans during the break, although this time Stanford’s...

Stanford obliterates Iowa from start to finish in the Rose Bowl

The Rose Bowl likes its own time slot, but even its committee had to be wishing it could move the Sugar Bowl up in starting time just to have something interesting to watch. Stanford dismantled Iowa from the very beginning (literally, a 75-yard touchdown pass to Christian McCaffrey on the first play of the game) to end, which arrived sometime in the second quarter, one that saw...

    Christian McCaffrey is thought to be battling something other than just the 11 defenders on the opposite side of the field every time he plays a football game. There is also a bias against white players at speed positions in football because of the perception that they aren’t as fast or athletic as black players.

It is in the nature of college football teams to not show their very best in the first game of the season. Rust. Nerves. Uncertainty about the ways in which lineups will or won’t mesh.
