What drives the wildly successful training philosophy of Shannon Turley? Here is an example: It’s a beautiful spring day on the Farm, and instead of being totally dumbstruck by Shannon Turley, I am now positively terrified by the freshman year version of Alex Debniak.
The San Francisco 49ers aren’t going to the Super Bowl alone– they’re taking a piece of Stanford with them: their medical director, Daniel Garza ’91 M.D. ’00.
I know that it is a little bit late in the game, but I have just two weeks to find an NFL team. The one previous time I did watch was several years back from the U.K., but I don’t feel I can count that attempt, so for the first time ever I intend to really watch the Super Bowl this year.
Pasadena, Calif– While Stanford’s 20-14 win over Wisconsin last night means the Rose Bowl trophy is making its way to back to the Farm at this very moment, the No. 6 Cardinal also carries with it something much less tangible but perhaps more important: national credibility. Playing in three consecutive BCS games and losing just five times in three years will do that for a program. So will having guys by the name of Toby Gerhart and Andrew Luck and 11 total players in the last three NFL Drafts.
It’s always hard for me to not be a pessimistic sports fan. When the Patriots met the Giants in last year’s Super Bowl, I had the uneasy feeling that the Pats would fall to their nemesis again. I was right. When the Celtics took a 3-2 series lead over the Heat in last year’s Eastern Conference Finals, I knew it was only a matter of time before LeBron James would singlehandedly find a way to beat us. I was right again.
