A Stunner in Seattle

48 hours later, it still boggles the mind. The best teams in modern Stanford Football have walked away from Washington with a loss, yet the lowliest Cardinal squad we have ever seen ended a 31-year drought at Husky Stadium. How did this happen?

McNally, Okwo, Sherman Washington Post-Game

For once, Stanford had its playmakers make the big plays. The Cardinal scored two touchdowns in the 20-3 win over Washington on a 49-yard interception return by Bo McNally and a 74-yard reception by Richard Sherman. In his first collegiate start, McNally added another pick, and Sherman racked up 177 yards. They, along with an emotional Michael Okwo, talked after Stanford's upset win in Seattle.

View from the Press Box: Arizona

Injuries, offensive offense and a renewed display of defensive futility against the run. Saturday's 20-7 loss to Arizona was the worst performance seen from Stanford Football since the UC Davis debacle of '05. If you have the stomach, here is the blow-by-blow account of events and observations.

Looking for Enough Offense

We are drawn to today's game between Stanford and Arizona with morbid fascination, like a moth to a flame. Both the Card and Cats are enduring struggles and sit at the bottom of almost all Pac-10 offensive categories. Arizona however has a defense stocked with size and athleticism that tilt in their favor. Stanford will lean upon an improved running game and hopeful changes in the passing attack.

Walt Harris Notre Dame Post-Game

It was a large contingent in the media room after Saturday's game at Notre Dame, with both sets of reporters talking with the two head coaches. Walt Harris was asked about what the Irish did to his team, as well as what Stanford was (not) able to do against their opponent. The Cardinal head coach talked about his playcalls, improvement, running the ball, his wide receivers, blocking and more.

View from the Press Box: Notre Dame

Stanford went into South Bend on Saturday with no external expectation or hope of competing, yet they for a second straight week gave much more fight than anyone expected. The defense and special teams helped with field position and some stops. The offense ran the ball well and came out of the gates firing. This time it was not a matter of turnovers. The offense literally dropped the ball.

Receiving Help?

Stanford is in need of an infusion right now at wide receiver, given the difficulties the last few weeks after losing each of their three non-freshman scholarship wideouts. Two of that trio took part in practices this week, but will either Evan Moore or Marcus McCutcheon play tomorrow in South Bend? We have the latest on their prospects, plus the rest of the receiving story for Stanford.
