That play with multiple pre-snap shifts was by far my favorite of the game, even if it did only gain one yard.

"If there's one criticism of Harbaugh, it's that he never takes his foot off the gas." Of course Harbaugh famously went for to in order to get 50 against USC last year, but this year Football Outsiders determined that Stanford ran up the score the least of any team in FBS (http://www.footballoutsiders.com/varsity-numbers/2010/varsity-numbers-runs-score).


Actually that multiple shifts play was there to setup and fool the defense, because it setup a huge play action pass in the next play.

Overall, it was a great performance especially by the defense, Skov was a monster and Fua played magnificently in the gaps. The TE formations were also superb as usual and the O-line dominated the line of scrimmage.

Twas a great season to remember


For all the talk of "you can't win at a school like Stanford," it is scary to think that we were one 2nd half meltdown in the Pacific NW from playing in the big game, and I'd like our chances.

I think that same play was run in Big Game with similar (ie, negligible) gain in yards. It also looks really silly. But I don't think that play was any kind of a sign of "not letting up on the gas." Keeping Luck in until the final drive was more indicative of Harbaugh's competitiveness. To his defense, Stanford's shown a tendency to allow big plays and big comebacks, so no lead is safe, although last night's defense probably wasn't going to let that happen.

Thanks for all the hard work on the blog. Much appreciated.


I put up my "Stanford -- Character and Cruelty" sign after our stout defense sacked Virginia Tech's QB yet again. Check out this video clip on YouTube.

Go Cardinal!
