Actually, what makes this more remarkable is that Stanford won in L.A. That was such a fun game to watch. I hate U$C so much and wish their entire band would just SHUT UP.

I like the seasons when both Cal and Stanford have reasonably good teams -- Big Game is much more exciting. Go Bears!

This was just a fluke win. Don't expect more pleasant surprises. Still, this unexpected win would not have been possible if Harris was still at the helm. Give Harbaugh a season or two and Stanford might turn a lot more competitive.
