Stanford Cardinal Football News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
See more NCAA Football tickets.
4/10/14: Stanford has the luxury of having an experienced QB this season, so they do not have to break in a new one. Kevin Hogan's grip on the job seems secure. He is not as dynamic or explosive of a player as, say, Jamies Winston or Johnny Manziel, but he is a proven winner and gets the job done. He has led the Cardinal to two straight Rose Bowl appearances, and that is a pretty good resume. Newcomer Keller Chryst should make some waves this fall and may be the heir apparent to the starter's position. Look for him to lock up the backup job and get some game time in early in the season.
4/3/14: The Cardinal head football coach, David Shaw, has done an excellent job of continuing the fine performance of his predecessor, Jim Harbaugh. Shaw had some interesting comments on a recent interview, including his preference for the late NFL draft this year (which is due to a scheduling conflict at Radio City Music Hall in New York City) as well as his coaching philosophy. Shaw claims that he does not coach motivation. He expects his players to be properly motivated without help from the coaching staff. Perhaps that is a reason that Stanford is continuously among the top programs in the country.
3/27/14: Former Cardinal head coach Jim Harbaugh deserves so much credit for his time at Stanford. Everyone knows that he brought the program back from the dead, got themselves into the National Championship discussion, and introduced QB Andrew Luck to the world. But it goes much deeper than that. Four years later, the Cardinal is still thriving. Stanford held their pro-day recently and it was attended by representatives from 29 of the NFL's 32 teams. Also, several former players (current NFL players) showed up to encourage their former teammates. That is the kind of support that money does not buy, and a big reason why Stanford will continue to be successful in the future.
3/20/14: The Cardinal, most likely, cannot play the underdog card much anymore. They have used that for several years now, but they are no longer David facing Goliath. They are Goliath. It goes back a few years when then-head coach Jim Harbaugh said they would beat mighty USC despite being 41 point underdogs. They won. They also have been to a few BCS Bowl games since then, including the Rose Bowl (as the Pac 12 Champion) just a couple months ago. Sure, USC looks revitalized and Oregon is very good, but Stanford is still the champ until further notice.
3/13/14: The Cardinal has had a busy offseason. There has been a considerable amount of turnover both in terms of players and the coaching staff. Every team loses players each year to graduation or declaring early for the NFL draft, transfers or even suspensions. Stanford is no different, including losing more than a dozen seniors and losing offensive guard David Yankey and safety Ed Reynolds to the NFL. They also lost their defensive coordinator and assistants to Vanderbilt when that job became available. Stanford also has its usual tough schedule, but the team seems undaunted by the challenge, and should be competitive again in 2014.
3/6/14: It is being reported that Cardinal wide receiver Kodi Whitfield will be moving to the defensive side of the ball to play free safety. Stanford has a glut of receivers, but needs help I their secondary. Head coach David Shaw approached Whitfield about the move, but has stressed that the decision was all on the player. By making the move, Whitfield will probably get more playing time than at WR. It also addresses an immediate need of the team. There will probably be some bumps on the way, but it is nice to see a player do whatever he can to play and help his team win.
2/27/14: 2014 is shaping up to be a challenging year for the Cardinal, but champions do not worry about such things. The coaching staff has undergone a good bit of turnover, especially with former defensive coordinator James Franklin heading to Vanderbilt to be their head coach and taking a few of his assistants with him. The schedule makers are not doing Stanford any favors either. Stanford is the two time defending champion of the Pac 12, and that means a tough schedule. The also lost a dozen seniors and a few underclassmen to the draft. They have 11 starting spots to be filled. But this is a strong program, and they will survive all the obstacles.
2/20/14: Stanford has done a remarkable job for most of the past decade in rebuilding a program that was the doormat of the Pac 12 (Pac 10 back then) and making them a national powerhouse. Former Cardinal head coach (and current 49ers HC) Jim Harbaugh deserves the credit for the turnaround, which was made public by a dramatic upset of USC several years ago when the Cardinal was a 41 point underdog. Stanford has stepped up their efforts this season by displaying their lovely weather to East Coast recruits who are buried and reburied in snow right now. Not a bad tactic, though FSU can claim that Florida is the only state without any snow today.
2/13/14: Stanford landed a pretty good recruiting class in 2014, which is to be expected of a team that has been in BCS bowl games for the past few years. The program has officially transferred seamlessly from former head coach Jim Harbaugh to current HC David Shaw, and has not missed a beat. In the middle of all of this, five star recruit defensive end Solomon Thomas had some fun in his decision. He pulled out a minature tree and donned 'nerd glasses' when he announced his decision to attend Stanford. It is nice to see a recruit having fun with the process, which may have gotten too serious in the last few years.
2/6/14: With national signing day upon us, the Cardinal is looking (like everyone else) to replenish their stock. Stanford will lose a lot to the NFL, including guard David Yankey and defensive end Trent Murphy. It looks like they will be able to re-up at defensive end with both Uriah Dillon and Harrison Phillips. Additionally, Boby Okereke is a top linebacker prospect and the team is likely to land running back Christian McCaffrey and QB Keller Chryst. Stanford can also lean on their NFL success, as former coach Jim Harbaugh has led the 49ers to three straight NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl, while cornerback Richard Sherman is probably the best at his position in the NFL right now.
1/30/14: Stanford felt the poaching effects already this offseason a few times. First, Texas was said to be interested in head coach David Shaw. Shaw stayed (probably a smart decision considering the program he has and the pressures at Texas). Then defensive coordinator Derek Mason was hired as head coach at Vanderbilt after James Franklin left to take the same position at Penn State. The Cardinal stayed in-house to fill the open DC job. The school announced last week that outside linebackers coach Lance Anderson has been promoted to DC, while continuing to coach the linebackers. Anderson has been at Stanford for the past seven years.
1/23/14: When Texas was looking for a new head coach, many thought that Stanford head coach David Shaw would be a good match. Shaw was not interested in going anywhere and stayed at Stanford. However, his assistants have other ideas. Most notably, defensive coordinator Derek Mason took the head coaching job at Vanderbilt. It looks like a good move for Vandy. Mason has had success recruiting top tier players at a high academic school, and he has taken lesser recruits and made them quality players. Its hard to fault a guy for earning a promotion, so best of luck Derek Mason.
1/16/14: The Cardinal is still reeling from the Rose Bowl loss to Michigan State, which provided far more questions than answers. Head coach David Shaw stayed with the game plan - a drag 'em out, bare knuckle, throwback fight to see who was tougher. Sparty was on that day. Shaw has only lost seven times since taking over the program from Jim Harbaugh, but the criticisms are starting to mount. Mainly that he does not adjust well to the in-game situations. On the other hand, he has kept a mighty machine rolling in a place where it is tough to get top recruits because of the outstanding academics. Enough with the criticism, the Cardinal is much better than could have ever been expected.
1/9/14: Stanford completed their 2013 season with a disappointing loss in the Rose Bowl to Michigan State. The Cardinal was favored by many experts going into the game because it was believed they had the better offense. MSU pushed those thoughts aside and took control of the 100th edition of the game - cutely nicknamed Sparty vs. Smarty. Head coach David Shaw has steadfastly denied any interest in another job. It looks like he was telling the truth. He will not be going to Texas, as they hired Charlie Strong from Louisville, and he is not reported to be interviewing for any NFL job.
1/1/14: Stanford is a day away from playing in the Rose Bowl, the reward given to both the Big 10 and Pac 12 champions. They will face Michigan State in a matchup being referred to as Sparty vs. Smarty. All cute nicknames aside, this will be a tough, grind-it-out, old fashioned football game. Both teams feature strong defenses and potent rushing attacks. Do not expect a shoot out in this one. In other news, Stanford head coach David Shaw says publicly that he has no interest in other positions, which may leave Texas booster a bit mad.
12/26/13: Stanford has an interesting matchup in the Rose Bowl against the Michigan State Spartans. Both are old fashioned teams. They feature solid QB play, strong running games, and stout defenses. In other words, neither is a gimmicky or high octane offense that can put up 80 points a game. In other news, head coach David Shaw continues to shoot down speculation that he will leave for a high profile job. Stanford is a premier program and Shaw has expertly maintained the high level that former head coach Jim Harbaugh established. That is good news for the Cardinal, and bad news for Texas.
12/19/13: Sanford probably does not need the distraction, but it will probably be around for a while. With Mack Brown officially stepping down as head coach of the Texas Longhorns, there are some rumors that UT may have an interest in Cardinal head coach David Shaw. Shaw has done a remarkable job maintaining the program that Jim Harbaugh built up before bolting to the NFL. Sanford is preparing to play in the Rose Bowl on January 1st against the Michigan State Spartans. However, until Brown's successor is chosen for what some consider the best job in college football, there will be speculation about Coach Shaw.
12/12/12: The Stanford Cardinal apparently heeded the warnings about getting dehydrated in the desert air to defeat the Arizona State Sun Devils 38-14. Stanford was simply more powerful, and more prepared for this game, and finished up the regular season with a very impressive record: 11-2 overall, 7-2 in conference, and 6-0 against top 25 teams. Head coach David Shaw and company have done an excellent job of keeping the program that Jim Harbaugh resurrected rolling at a high level. Stanford earned the right to represent the Pac-12 in the Rose Bowl, and will face Michigan State.
12/5/13: Number 8 Stanford had an interesting regular season finale in taking on #25 Notre Dame. The game did not have any bearing on the Pac-12 race - the Cardinal already has a place at the table against Arizona State this weekend. But it is a long standing rival and the winner gets the Legends Trophy. Notre Dame won this game last season en route to an appearance in the National Championship Game. Stanford came through this time, winning 27-20 at home. It was a challenging final tune-up for the match with AZ State, and the right to represent the conference in the Rose Bowl.
