Stanford focused on winning, not bowl eligibility

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Even after all the recent setbacks and the roadblocks that remain, David Shaw is still talking about what bowl Stanford could go to - not if his team will make a bowl. Say this about the Cardinal coach's confidence: it hasn't wavered yet. It will, however, likely be tested again. That's just the kind of year it has been on The Farm. Stanford (5...

Scouting The Cardinal: This isn’t the Tyler Gaffney and Shane Skov show anymore

by Adam Vinton, from reader comments Against Oregon State, Stanford did the majority of their damage in the first half. They scored 10 points in the second. On offense, Stanford threw slants and misdirection at the defense. When ASU beat Stanford, their offense was what you typically think of when you think Stanford: run straight ahead and occasionally throw deep to keep the defense...

ASU hopes to learn from previous failings against Stanford

TEMPE, Ariz. -- When asked earlier this week about Arizona State's two losses to Stanford last season, coach Todd Graham replied playfully.

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]
