... Walt Harris, and the turnaround he has given Stanford Football.

... Trent Edwards, and his pin-point accuracy in the face of a bevy of beatings.

... Dan Grunfeld, and his complete ACL recovery, allowing his excitement to return to Maples Pavilion.

... The Lopez Twins, and the 14 feet of towering terror they are bringing to The Farm.

... Jayne Appel, and the "Fab Four" women's hoops recruiting class hailed as the best in Stanford history.

... the renovated Maples Pavilion, and its dramatic upgrade in fan and athlete experiences.

... the new Stanford Stadium, and the revolutionary changes that will bring to football on The Farm.
