Big Game Bust: Cal 37, Stanford 16

Original post made on Nov 22, 2008

There was reason to celebrate and reason to despair. The Stanford football team, despite losing four of its last five games, finished a remarkable season with a look toward an even better tomorrow. The Big Game loss, a painful 37-16 decision to California in Berkeley, will certainly carry a sting into the offseason.

"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.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
