Three Coaches Were Ejected From Last Night’s Cal-Stanford Game For Trying To Break Up A Fight, Because That Makes Total Sense
Sometimes the NCAA’s rules create loopholes – or at least the appearance of loopholes – that are fun to contemplate. Other times? Well, other times, you get what happened between Stanford and Cal last night.
Thanks to upset losses to Kansas State and Oregon, Alabama’s national title hopes — feared dead after an upset loss of their own to Texas A&M — have been brought back to life. In the waning moment’s of Stanford’s overtime win in Eugene, a den full of Alabama fans nervously waited as Jordan Williamson lined up for a 37-yard field goal. The kick was good, and a good ol’ fashioned SEC freakout (which comes at the 1:16 mark) was in order. [Friends of the Program via Kegs N' Eggs]
Ray Lewis, for reasons that are unclear right now, gave a pre-game speech to the Stanford basketball team ahead of their Tuesday night NIT game in Madison Square Garden. But, really, does Ray Lewis ever really need a reason to give a pre-game speech? Video, after the jump.
Stanford lost the Fiesta Bowl last night, but quarterback Andrew Luck put on one of his best performances in his college finale. Indeed, it was a performance that had even NFL players hoping they could one day call Luck a teammate.
Sometimes a kick returner will take the ball out of the end zone instead of taking a knee, and you know it won’t end well. Tonight during the Fiesta Bowl, Stanford’s Jeremy Stewart thought teammate Montgomery was about to have one of those moments…but not if Stewart had anything to say about it.
Last night’s big matchup with Oregon didn’t go how Stanford wanted it. They lost by nearly the exact same score as last year (53-30), their Pac-12 title hopes were all but eliminated…and they missed a field goal by about as much as one can be missed.
Stanford’s Chris Owusu was taken off the field in an ambulance in the first half of the Cardinal’s game against Oregon State today. Jordan Poyer made the hit, and the Beavers returned the ensuing fumble for a touchdown — that play was overturned, however, because Poyer was penalized for targeting above the shoulder pads.
As we mentioned earlier, Stanford beat UCLA last night 45-19. Given that final score, it’s especially unlikely that UCLA was leading by a score of 99-0 – and apparently had the ball and a chance to push into the triple digits – midway through the first quarter. But Reddit user skisaj12 caught ESPN’s Bottom Line saying just that, and we thank him/her for it. While every offense might dream of moving the ball well enough to score 14 touchdowns (plus one successful two-point conversion) in six minutes, not even the mighty Andrew Luck led the victorious Cardinal to such heights last night.
