The Quiet Brilliance of Kevin Hogan

By: Ben Leonard Follow @ben___leonard STANFORD, Calif. — Right after winning one of the biggest games of his life, the ever even-keeled Kevin Hogan didn’t let the moment get to him. The sea of Stanford students had made the field a sea of Cardinal, but it didn’t even seem to let his emotions affect him after his last game at Stanford Stadium. When his head coach David Shaw spoke with him…

McCaffrey, Stanford Run Past Bears to Take Axe

By: Ben Leonard Follow @ben___leonard Thanks to Christian McCaffrey, the Axe is staying on the Farm. Again.

Oh yeah, not to mention that they clinched a spot in the Pac-12 championship…

Stanford’s Not-So-Inconceivable Path to the Playoff

By: Ben Leonard Follow @ben___leonard For those of you who wrote off Stanford’s playoff hopes after their heartbreaking loss against Oregon on Saturday (myself included): it’s not over yet! And I’m not just being a homer. As the highest ranked two-loss team, the committee really values Stanford. It’s hard to blame them: the loss against Northwestern is a distant memory, and they had several chances to put away Oregon. That’s…

Hogan, Stanford Drop the Ball, Fall to Ducks

By: Ben Leonard Follow @ben___leonard Oh, Stanford.  Just when you think they’re on the cusp of brilliance, they break our hearts and lay an egg. Or maybe the Ducks laid it for them.  Even though it seemed like they were always on offense, Stanford made too many miscues when it mattered most, gave up too many plays, and couldn’t finish drives in a heart-wrenching 38-36 upset loss to the unranked Oregon…

Faulty Play Call Leads To 49ers Win

By: Joe Lami SANTA CLARA, Calif.— The San Francisco 49ers returned to win the column on Sunday afternoon, taking care of the Atlanta Falcons 17-16 at Levi’s Stadium. After an interesting week that saw Colin Kaepernick benched, Vernon Davis traded, and the addition of two new running backs, the 49ers were able to hold on by the skin of their teeth in the 4th quarter to improve their record to…

McCaffrey Does It All As Stanford Rolls Past Buffaloes

By: Ben Leonard Follow @ben___leonard You’ve been given the power to pick between two running backs to start your college football program: Christian McCaffrey and Ralphie, Colorado’s living, breathing buffalo. After Saturday, the choice has become harder than you might think. The Buffalo might have the *slight* size advantage and would be a little harder to bring down. But given Ralphie’s lack of opposable thumbs and rocket arm, I think…

Ram’s Big Plays Sink 49ers In Disheartening Fashion

By: Matt Mizota The Rams improved to 4-3 as the Niners dropped to 2-6 in an ugly penalty filled game with a score of 27-6. The Niners offense could never seem to get in a rhythm and the few times they did were held to a field goal. The defense did an overall good job containing running back Todd Gurley, save for a 71-yard touchdown run. The 49ers started with…
