Wednesday marked the beginning of the end for Stanford's fall camp, with the Cardinal conducting their third and final full scrimmage. It was the most even of the three scrimmages, with playmaking by both the offense and defense. A point of pride for the "O" was a solid running game, while an area of disappointment was a quarterback injury. See all of what Walt Harris and Trent Edwards had to say.

Some of the biggest shoes to fill for Stanford in the 2006 defense are those vacated by Jon Alston, who started all 22 games in the history of the "rush" outside linebacker position for the Cardinal. Now two exciting but brand new faces try to take over. Also: the "Sam" OLBs, Edwards' streak ends, Moore returns, Mattran in the middle, Kimble shreds, Lorig leaps forward and more from fall camp.

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.

We missed a good deal of action on the practice field Tuesday, while the story broke of Stanford's new Athletic Director hire.

We have the scoop on shake-ups at offensive tackle, inside linebacker, cornerback, running back and more. Plus, full offensive statistics from the scrimmage, and what they help tell us.

This time a year ago, on the second-to-last Saturday of spring ball, Stanford's defense shut down the offense. This go-around on Day 11, the scrimmage went back and forth. The offense scored five touchdowns, including a pair from 30 or more yards out. The defense made stops and recorded a pair of interceptions. We have the playmakers and blow-by-blow account of all 95 plays from scrimmage.

We have the full play-by-play of the most important day yet this year for Cardinal Football, revealing playmakers on both sides of the ball. This report is one you cannot afford to miss...

While the fate of the offense may largely rest in the hands of the offensive line, there will be great expectations placed upon the playmakers at the skill positions in 2006 for Stanford. Almost the entire roster of running backs, receivers, tight ends and quarterbacks has returned and should thrive in Year Two under Walt Harris. Several of those positions have open battles this spring, however...
