Here's what you do. Fire up the flux capacitor and take a trip back to Palo Alto in the spring of 1991. You'll be able to find me in any of a number of places -- playing softball on the intramural fields, shooting hoops on the courts behind Sterling Quad, or sitting in front of a computer terminal pounding out a paper in LOTS. When you get to me, ask me to sit down, and do your best to explain that a time will come when Stanford will play in three Rose Bowls in four years. You had better bring proof, because there's no way I'll ever believe you.
Even in 2015, sitting in front of another computer as I pound out this recap, I'm having a hard time believing what we've been watching over the past several years. In fact, I'm having a hard time believing what we saw last night as Stanford clinched that third Rose Bowl bid in four years with a dominant win over USC in the Pac-12 Championship game.
