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...

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.

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...

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...

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.
