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.

Walt Harris commented recently how fond he is of fifth-year senior Timi Wusu. The outside linebacker and special teams standout has never had the chance to fully shine on The Farm, fighting an array of injuries. While the athletic talent is exciting, Harris enjoys and admires Wusu for his positive energy, character and how he carries himself. This sitdown Q&A session with Wusu will help you see why.

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?

How in the world does Stanford post 45 points in a Pac-10 football game? The Cardinal are an improving squad, and you had to be in Stanford Stadium on Saturday to see the outstanding work on offense, defense and special teams against the Sun Devils. If you were not on hand to see the 45-35 victory, you will want to get inside the action with this game log.

The story of last week's win at Washington State was all about the offense, though the follow-up effort Saturday in Tucson left much to be desired. Instead, it was a stifling Stanford defense that came up with a load of big plays to hand the Cardinal a 20-16 win over the Arizona Wildcats. Not quite pretty, Stanford celebrated their third hard-fought road victory of 2005.
