David Shaw cracks funny joke about satellite camps

The Pac-12 was one of the four Power 5 conferences to vote against the use of satellite camps, so it makes sense that Stanford’s David Shaw would be against them. This quote from the 43-year-old coach is puzzling, though. It appears Shaw is throwing shade at the academic standing of the entire southeast region of the United States. David Shaw says no reason for satellite...

CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein reported the news via Twitter Friday that Haase will be named the new head coach at Stanford. This comes after he spent...

Names to watch for Stanford hoops job

Stanford fired Johnny Dawkins on Monday after he spent eight seasons on the job. Under Dawkins, the Cardinal went just 15-15 this season and missed the NCAA Tournament for the second straight year. He did win the NIT in 2012 and 2015, but that’s not good enough for Cardinal fans. With Dawkins out, Stanford will begin a search for a new head coach. Some of the names being mentioned...

David Shaw: Tackling, contact in practice is ‘vital’

David Shaw believes hitting and tackling in practice are necessary for building a physical football team. This week coaches in the Ivy League voted unanimously to ban full-contact practice during the regular season in addition to their already strict rules against full-contact practices in the spring and preseason.

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...

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 proposes to girlfriend after Rose Bowl win

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. But the rout was on by halftime, as the Cardinal had built a 35-point lead over the Iowa Hawkeyes — much to Carly Fiorina’s dismay. Things only got worse for Hawkeyes fans during the break, although this time Stanford’s...

WATCH: Obnoxious fan disrupts Christian McCaffrey's interview

Stanford throttled Iowa 45-16 to win the Rose Bowl this evening, not surprisingly thanks in large part to the exploits of sophomore running back Christian McCaffrey. The Heisman runner-up became the first player in Rose Bowl history to record over 100 yards rushing and 100 yards receiving, and scored touchdowns as a receiver and punt returner.  After the game, ESPN tried to interview...

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...

Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina’s Rose Bowl pandering draws scorn

Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina’s football allegiances were tested on New Year’s Day when No. 6 Stanford faced No. 5 Iowa in the Rose Bowl. Fiorina graduated from Stanford in 1976, but Iowa is an important state in the presidential nomination process. So, in a blatant show of pandering, Fiorina decided to back the Hawkeyes ahead of the Feb. 1 caucus. Love...

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.
