By Evan Buhler, 1 month 3 weeks ago
The NFL playoffs often get to the heads of younger players. With the stakes elevated and the media scrutiny even more intense than usual, pressure can build up and cause some phenomenal players to perform in ways that are well beneath what they are capable of.

Cohn: The legacy of Stuart Scott

By Evan Buhler, 1 month 3 weeks ago
In July, I wrote about Stuart Scott’s moving ESPY speech, and how that speech has inspired and strengthened cancer patients, cancer survivors and their families. While Mr. Scott had built a storied career as one of ESPN’s most recognizable sports anchors, his finest moment came on that ESPY stage, when he bravely detailed his fight with cancer, while also offering words of encouragement and...

Chen: Lessons learned during the 2014 football season

By Evan Buhler, 1 month 3 weeks ago
This was a tough season for Stanford football fans. Like many, I often found myself at a loss for words in the past four months. Stanford’s 8-5 record wasn’t shocking, but the way the team played in those five losses, and even in some of the wins, certainly was. We criticized the offensive line for its mental mistakes, Kevin Hogan for his inconsistency and the coaches for not giving the ball to...

By Evan Buhler, 1 month 3 weeks ago
Five or 10 years from now, how will you remember Kevin Hogan? Surely some Stanford fans will recall memories of Hogan plunging into the end zone in Eugene to put the Card ahead in their eventual upset of the Ducks or Hogan’s masterful performance in the 2013 Pac-12 Championship Game, in which he guided Stanford to its second consecutive conference title. Stat lovers may instead reflect on Hogan...

By Evan Buhler, 1 month 3 weeks ago
A Scout.com report on Sunday claimed that Director of Football Sports Performance Shannon Turley would rejoin former Cardinal head coach Jim Harbaugh at Michigan, potentially signaling a huge blow for a Stanford program that failed to win 10 games for the first time since 2009 this season.

Senior wide receiver Devon Cajuste announced on Wednesday that he would return to Stanford for a fifth season. The Cardinal’s second-leading receiver made his decision public on Twitter the day after the team’s dominant 45-21 win over Maryland in the Foster Farms Bowl, in which he scored a pair of touchdowns. I have decided that I am both proud and excited to spend one more season as...
