Bootleg Video: Kevin Schimmelmann

Yes, he leads Stanford in both solo (46) and total (78) tackles, but Kevin Schimmelmann is respected and recognized by his teammates in many more ways as the leader of the defense. There is no better man to talk about the state of the "D" on The Farm, and what kind of experience this season has been. Listen to what this sagacious senior says, if you want the pulse of Cardinal.

Most Stanford fans are caught up in the rollercoaster analysis of the offense and defense, with the many statistical measures of effectiveness or a lack thereof.  Schimmelmann instead says that the defining characteristic of the 2005 Cardinal has been its ability to rebound and remain resilient.  How does Walt Harris fit into that equation?  How is this last week's schedule a unique one with no classes in session?  What has dictated the finish for the defense at the end of ballgames?  Schimmelmann talks thoughtfully on these questions, giving great insight into the soul of this Stanford defense and team.
