Cohn: The legacy of Stuart Scott

By Evan Buhler, 3 months 4 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, 3 months 4 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...

Foster Farms Bowl: By the numbers

By Evan Buhler, 4 months 12 hours ago
Stanford football capped its 2014 season in style, blasting Maryland in the Foster Farms Bowl 45-21. The final score does not reflect the complete one-sidedness of the contest, as the Card led by 35 when they began to pull their starters from the game. Here is the breakdown of Stanford’s dominating performance: 3: Number of rushing touchdowns scored by senior running back Remound Wright Wright...

Peterson: How will Stanford fans remember Kevin Hogan?

By Evan Buhler, 4 months 12 hours 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...

Conflicting reports on whether strength coach Shannon Turley will rejoin Harbaugh at Michigan

By Evan Buhler, 4 months 19 hours 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. However, reports by ESPN and others later Sunday night asserted that Turley would return to the Farm. No...

Devon Cajuste will return to Stanford for fifth season

By Evan Buhler, 4 months 4 days ago
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...

Alex Carter declares for 2015 NFL Draft

By Evan Buhler, 4 months 5 days ago
After three seasons starting at cornerback for the Cardinal, junior Alex Carter has announced his decision to forgo his final year of collegiate eligibility and will declare for the 2015 NFL Draft. “I talked it over with my family, and we decided it’s time,” Carter told the San Francisco Chronicle. “I love these boys. It was great playing with them, and I’ll miss them.” He made the announcement...

Stanford crushes Maryland 45-21 in Foster Farms Bowl

By Evan Buhler, 4 months 5 days ago
The cold never bothered them anyway. Not even the chilly Santa Clara wind could cool down Stanford’s sizzling play on Tuesday as the Cardinal (8-5, 5-4 Pac-12) lived up to their billing as the largest favorites of the postseason in a 45-21 Foster Farms Bowl demolition of outmatched Maryland (7-6, 4-4 Big Ten). In doing so, the Cardinal secured a sixth consecutive 8-win season and a third...

Foster Farms Bowl features clash between Terps and Cardinal

By The Sports Network, 4 months 5 days ago
Santa Clara, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - It's not the Rose Bowl, or even a New Year's Day invite for that matter, but the Stanford Cardinal can at least take solace in having a decided home field advantage for the Foster Farms Bowl on Dec. 30. Stanford's campus is just 11 miles from Levi's Stadium, while the underdog Maryland Terrapins will travel some 2,800 miles from coast-to-coast in the...

Stanford set to take on Maryland in ‘home’ bowl game

By Evan Buhler, 4 months 6 days ago
In the end, Stanford will, in fact, get to play a game at Levi’s Stadium this season. Granted, it’s 25 days later than the Cardinal (7-5, 5-4 Pac-12) wanted, and against Maryland (7-5, 4-4 Big Ten) instead of the Pac-12 South champion, but on the tail end of a disappointing season, Stanford will at least have the chance to make one final statement against a Power 5 opponent and hit the 8-win...
