The Bootleg's special partner Dave Fowkes has a tough task this week. Candidly evaluating the disappointing outcome in Eugene. A decisive defeat at the hands of a Duck team on a serious roll is nothing of which to be ashamed, but it would have been a bit easier to stomach had the caliber of play been more consistent throughout the contest. Have a read, then get ready for the Trojans this Saturday!

The Bootleg.com's Expert Analyst for Defensive Backs, former Card safety Eliel Swinton (1993-96), aka "Coach E", reviews the Stanford secondary's individual and collective effort against OSU in Corvallis! Sorry for the delay in publishing - we were swamped at the end of last week with a number of late submissions. Better late than never, we hope. More on last Saturday's UW game will soon follow!

We last saw him on December 2, 2006 in Stanford's season finale. 6'7" Chris Marinelli has been on the shelf since, but on Sunday the redshirt sophomore right tackle made his 2007 debut participating in team action. The big Bostonian is a shot in the arm for the offensive line, and his unbridled excitement to be back on the field is carried with the same brute force as his play.

Heavy attention was paid Thursday night to special teams in Stanford's fourth day of fall camp. But our eyes were glued to some scintillating position switches newly unveiled. Local product Will Powers jumped to the offense and a new position, while a true freshman made the reverse journey. We talked to both players afterward, and head coach Jim Harbaugh, on the news and plans.
