While this week is all about "March Madness" and postseason basketball for most of the collegiate and Cardinal sporting communities, it is also a hot time for the approaching NFL Draft. Scouts from all over the NFL descended upon The Farm yesterday to watch a number of seniors test and work out during Stanford's Pro Day. Though rain dampened the affair, some of the times turned a lot of heads.

Say this about the 2005 Stanford season: we lived in interesting times. Yet another heartbreaker saw the Cardinal come up short when they dropped 38-31 against Notre Dame on Saturday. Tracking this wild one from upstairs was as much a rollercoaster as it was for fans watching on television across the country. Notre Dame owned the stat sheet, but Stanford fought the Fighting Irish to the wire.

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.

The two teams slugged it out through the first two and a half quarters in a defensive battle, but Cal made more big plays to pull away with three touchdowns in the final 25 minutes. The Stanford defense made a number of inspiring plays, but the offense struggled throughout. Trent Edwards was knocked out of action for the third time this year behind a turnstile offensive line.

It is still a state of shock, as the Cardinal community tries to come to grips with a monumental fourth-quarter collapse in Saturday's 30-27 loss to UCLA. Up 21 points with eight minutes to go in the game, with the high-octane Bruin offense held in check to the tune of just three points, it was all right now. How does something so good turn so bad?

Stanford's biggest win of this young season Saturday was also the first most Cardinalmaniacs™ could not see. Fortunately, The Bootleg was on location and able to continue our popular game log series. Relive the 24-21 win over Washington State through a pair of eyes in Pullman, capturing the story of how this game unfolded - beyond the box score.
