"remarkable"???? since when is beating San Jose, the two Washington schools (with a combined record of 2-22), and U of A remarkable? One quality W - over Ore St back in August.

Sure, compared to 1-11 in 2006, this season was better. But compared to the glory days of the 1970s, or late 1990s, Stanford still has a ways to go. Hope Coach H signs that extension. Rich Rodriguez just went 3-9 at Mich.....

As usual,it looks like Stanford needs more team speed. Also, I think Harbaugh should be coming up with more plays and less platitudes, like that "blue collar" thing.
