Stanford 13, ASU 0 (End 1st)

Ty Montgomery, why are you bringing it out? Why are you bringing it out? Oh wait, he's to midfield. A "no, no, no, yes" play gives the Card a spark right off the bat after ASU deferred to the second half. Tyler Gaffney tries to palm the ball in his inside, right hand, but fumbles across the first-down line and recovers. Sheesh. Then Hogan overshoots Montgomery on a deep ball that was open.

Stanford 34, Army 20 (Final)

Our offensive players of the game are Tyler Gaffney and Ty Montomgery, who combined for 315 total yards and three touchdowns. Here's hoping the offense runs through them in the weeks to come. On defense, the player of the game is James Vaughters, who recovered a fumble and had a fourth-and-short stuff, both in the second half.

Stanford 27, Army 13 (End of third)

"I wonder if we're trying to do a bit too much on offense. Run power with Gaffney, get it to Montgomery, play action bomb it deep, and stick to that script. There's a reason we do precisely those things when we really need a score. Now, we need to stick to a more pared-down, basic plan moving forward, instead of trying to get every player and every look out on the field."

Starters Named: Stanford Camp

David Shaw hates the idea of announcing starters, not because he wants to be secretive about the complexion of his football team, but rather because a binary win or lose announcement of starter or backup does a disservice to Stanford's depth.

Rose Bowl In Focus: Derek Mason & David Shaw

Derek Mason talks about up-and-comers for next season, while David Shaw discusses about his father, and why Stanford's biggest step toward the Rose Bowl might well have come in a losing effort. Again, many of these quotes stem from exclusive interviews with The Bootleg, and there are some absolute gems here.

Scrimmage report pt. 2: defense

Stanford's defense dominated April's Spring Game, almost to a worrisome extent. A beastly front seven suffocated the offense, playing without Stepfan Taylor. Positive yardage through the air was also hard to come by. Many times, Josh Nunes and Brett Nottingham seemed to close their eyes, chuck the ball downfield, and hope for the best, not exactly a comforting formula.
