The Season Starts Now: Stanford Football

Stanford Football: The Emergence of the Deep Ball

One of the big question marks for Stanford football entering the 2013 season was whether a deep threat would emerge for Sophomore QB Kevin Hogan. On the fifth offensive play of Stanford’s 34-13 win over San Jose State on Saturday, that question might have been answered. Hogan hit 6’4” Junior Devon Cajuste down […]

Cal’s offense under Sonny Dykes is going to be fun to watch The Golden Bears ran a whopping 99 offensive plays in their opening game against 19th-ranked Northwestern. 99 plays! To put that into perspective, Arizona ran just 47 offensive plays against Northern Arizona. Coach Sonny Dykes certainly had faith in true freshman […]
