What’s up sports fan? Well we’ve watched Stanford appear to be not human when it plays it’s opponents this season. Mainly because really they haven’t had any real competition. But as good as they’ve been playing the collegiate sports world has been labeling them as average. Let’s face it in all my years of watching college football I’ve never in my life seen a team go unbeaten and go from a No. 4 spot in the country to the No. 8 ranking. Unfortunately for our local Stanford football team they are the first to do it. It wasn’t until they beat Washington 65-21 last week that they were ranked No. 8. And maybe it was a mix up in the BCS selection process. I’m writing this and some of you out there probably didn’t catch it when it happened. In any event I listened to KCBS this morning and they had David Shaw commenting on the how they were resilient when they needed to be. That’s exactly what they needed to do to beat USC.

The Trojans were definitely prepared for a competitive game against Stanford’s offense. At one point USC led and it appeared that they would beat the Cardinal, and Andrew Luck for once appeared to be human. He actually threw a interception.  Head coach Shaw stated on the KCBS Sports Desk that he saw Luck seething over his mistake but right after that went to every member of the team and told them, ” Were going to win this game. Don’t worry. Were going to win this game.” David Shaw said, ” After he threw that inception, he hated it. It killed him to make that error. But then he just went to his teammates and let them know he wasn’t going to let them down.  It’s been his resolve his whole college career.  Andrew Luck is a fierce competitor, and I’m just glad he’s on our side. I wouldn’t want to have job of having to coach against him.”

With the Cardinal playing the way they are this season it makes you wonder how this win feels to the starting quarterback, “I might need a couple minutes to digest it, but it’s definitely up there,” Luck said when asked where the night ranked among his football memories. “More than anything, I’m just happy to get a win.” Andrew Luck and Stanford have been doing more than just getting a win. They are now 8-0, and in sole posession of first place in the Pac-12, and they could easily argue for the national title. He was so mad at himself,” said David Shaw “He wasn’t going to let that play lose the game for us. … We put the ball in our quarterback’s hands, put it on his shoulders, and the kid came through.” Luck finished 29-40 for 330 yards, 3 TD’s and 1 int.  Both teams scored in overtime and it just seemed that the team that would lose composure was going to lose the game. It’s hard to watch because really both teams played well except, “No excuse, I just fumbled,” said McNeal,  “I feel like beating myself up, but I’ve just got to keep pushing. I’m going to face worse things in life. I just have to keep my head up.”

Stanford’s dingy defense forced Curtis McNeal to cough up the ball and give the Cardinal the win.  Both teams produced a total  of 948 yards of total offense. Stanford with 516 and USC with 432. The Cardinal remain unbeaten and we’ve just learned that they have moved up in the BCS ranking’s to No. 4 in the country. It does appear that they are on a collision course with No. 6 Oregon. Think they can win the PAC – 12 title? Or are the analysts correct that the other universities like Alabama and LSU are the powerhouses in the BCS? Tell me what you think.
