September's The Bootleg magazine captures the hoarse-voiced enthusiasm of Cardinalmania as the 2002 season gets underway.
Don't miss this month's feature on the Cardinal wide-receiver corps. We'd call our good-hands guys an embarrassment of riches if we, at The Bootleg were capable of embarrassment.
In other stories:
- Buddy Teevens' bow at Boston College made him the latest in a string of eight head coaches, stretching back to 1977, to launch their Stanford careers away from home. We're glad that there's no historical pattern for career success or failure based on the final score of game one.
- In a rare glimpse at one of the best-kept secrets on El Camino Real – the football breakfasts at the Sheraton Hotel attended by the venerable Council of Chiefs – we're reminded that Cardinalmania knows no age limits. In fact, the longer one retains the mania, the more maniacal one becomes.
- We "Paye" a visit to former Stanford QB, who's got his hands full with his three young children and three old quarterbacks: Steve DeBerg, Daryle Lamonica and Ken Stabler play in the golf tournament run by John Paye's company.
- With some schools now embarking on regular season schedules that can span 13 games, the 11-game slate may become a thing of the past. Our point-counterpoint feature weighs in on whether Stanford should lengthen the football season.
- The "other season" is closer than you think. How are Stanford's hoops recruiting efforts shaking out? We take a look at a bona-fide superstar who's chosen life on the Farm, Tim Morris.
- A daft dose of Kibbles & Bits counts the losses Cal football has incurred of late, while lamenting two Cardinal gridders we are sad to see go. Plus some new Hall of Fame inductees, higher ticket prices and letters to the editor.
- The Hot List takes a very current look at some of the most important football and basketball recruiting targets for Stanford today. Photocopy these two pages and pin it up on your corkboard at work as you traverse the endless waves of recruiting posts and stories on TheBootleg.com...
