August's debut of The Bootleg magazine got the season headed in the right direction with a typically irreverent Bootlook at all things Cardinal, including inside scoop on the people who coach and the student-athletes who wear the uniform.

If you saw it, and still haven't subscribed, you're dissing us.
Either way, to paraphrase Dean Wormer of Faber College, being a non-subscriber to The Bootleg magazine is no way to go through life.
Here's what you missed in the August 2002 issue:
- A look at Stanford in '02: even Stanford fans are pointing to 2003 as 'the year' for Stanford football, with the maturation of a young defense, plus some stars on the O. But this senior class has no time for transition as they are gunning for success right now.
- Cutting edge, nowhere-but-here prognostication about the 2002 Pac-10 season. Think the Cardinal will flounder in the second division? Think again. Think kal will ever field a legitimately clean Division-1A football program? Good question.
- He's relaxed, he's rested, he's ready for some football. The Bootleg visits Tom Williams, ex-Cardinal linebacker now collecting a well-earned paycheck as co-defensive coordinator. The "Old Man" is perhaps the happiest guy to be back in Palo Alto.
- Preparations for another Pac-10 hoops run began this spring and pushed through the summer, when Monty's men pumped iron - and pumped up. Get a very inside look at how Stanford basketball is transforming their bodies and abilities through strength and conditioning.
- Editor Stan DeVaughn offers his "True Confessions" about his severe case of Cardinalmania™ and how he got there.
- Is there trouble in paradise? Tennis Coach Dick Gould says no way as the team is poised for another NCAA title run in 2003. Read what else Gould has to impart about the past, present and future of Cardinal men's tennis.
- And more: biting commentary from Gail Tate, recruiting tidbits, and the kind of wit-with-a-wallop you've always expected from The Bootleg.
