Stanford football very motivated to face UCLA on Saturday

Original post made on Oct 17, 2008

Ah, for the days when Stanford routinely beat UCLA in football. Those glory years spanned the careers of Ernie Nevers to Frankie Albert; Ted Shipkey to Chuck Taylor; and Seraphim Post to Hugh Gallarneau. By the end of the 1941 season, Stanford boasted an 11-3-1 record, including all six shutouts, against the Bruins and claimed 12 All-Americans. The Cardinal also went to the Rose Bowl seven times. Things have changed.

Last week's win vs U of AZ was harder-won than should have been. Although the win was very satisfying, I saw some defensive lapses (receivers not covered, etc.), and Pritchard trying to tackle the interceptor of his pass was just plain scary. Go Card!
