The fireworks are finished for Stanford's 2006 preseason training camp with the last scrimmage in the books. But this final week also offered the first scout team work for the Cardinal, which affords us some insights into the depth charts and freshman forecasts of possible playing time this fall. We offer here our analysis of who might burn their redshirt, plus some scrimmage highlights and more.

It was an unusual Spring Game for sure. Not only was the annual public scrimmage to conclude Cardinal spring football held on the practice fields and not in Stanford Stadium, but also there was an array of offensive fireworks in the opening few series. We have the only account of all 111 plays from the 2006 Spring Game, showing the ebb and flow for the offense and defense, as well as special teams kicking action.

The man tackling Stanford's defensive challenges today is A.J. Christoff, who is back on The Farm after coaching with the San Francisco 49ers. The Cardinal's secondary coach and defensive coordinator sat down with us this week to talk about his players and the spring. Christoff commented on the look for the front seven, the promise of some young players, leadership in the secondary, the trend of big wide receivers, and more...

Our final look at the Stanford defense as we start 2006 spring practices examines the inside linebackers and the defensive backfield. The former group has two solid starters but one who could be questionable this spring, and nobody of experience behind the pair. The cornerback questions were obvious, but the latest news at safety makes that an unsafe and uncertain group.

A parting of the skies for some rare sunshine on The Farm today brought smiles to our faces, but a dark cloud hangs over Stanford Football and two of its seniors in particular. A pair of the Cardinal's veteran starters have been suspended by Walt Harris for the spring, and that suspension could carry through the fall. The loss of these two key players is significant, not only in their absence but also in the effect elsewhere on the roster.

Stanford's training camp has concluded, which means that scout team work has begun and a depth chart has been delivered. If you think that ends the mysteries of the preseason, then think again. A closer look at practices plus a talk with Walt Harris reveals several unanswered areas. We give you a closer look at the running back rotation, playing true freshmen, and what it takes to scout Navy.
