If you had to put your finger on a single on-field moment that announced the transformation of Stanford football, it would be easy. November 14, 2009, just a bit past 3:00 PM Pacific time in the Los Angeles Coliseum. You know what happened.

Up until now, the best quote we knew from that game was Harbaugh's "What's your deal?," but now we've got another from Harbs -- "I want to put 50 on these motherfuckers."
