In emails to members of the Stanford community late last week, Provost John Etchemendy ‘82 and Kappa Sigma resident assistant Hunter Kodama ‘14 condemned the messages sent by Snapchat co-founder and CEO Evan Spiegel ‘12 while he was a member of the fraternity at Stanford.
It’s not easy to say goodbye — especially not to an NHL season. That’s what I was forced to do two weeks ago when my beloved San Jose Sharks choked so historically that even I was left without excuses. But now the Sharks’ ownership is applying the proverbial Heimlich as it gears up for the future, and I’m discovering that saying goodbye to an NHL player or two may be even harder.
Six Cardinal football players were picked in the 2014 NFL Draft on Friday and Saturday to tie a program record and lead the Pac-12, while at least five more have already signed as unrestricted free agents. But even with those impressive numbers, several Stanford players were selected later than expected, most notably inside linebacker Shayne Skov, who wasn’t drafted at all.
Another year, another draft and another class of Cardinal football players to say goodbye to. This time last year and the year before, we said goodbye to members of Stanford’s former recruiting class of 2008: a heralded group that included David DeCastro, Jonathan Martin, Chris Owusu, Chase Thomas and, of course, Andrew Luck. Now it’s…
Skov will be remembered as the face (and voice) of a resurgent Cardinal defense that reached four straight BCS bowls — and as the linebacker who led the nerds to revenge.
Yankey has been the sledgehammer behind the Cardinal’s beloved power running game for two-plus seasons, and his absence will be felt going forward.
Mauro didn’t just provide Stanford with the snaps it sorely needed at the position in 2013; he also made a name for himself, earning All-Pac-12 honorable mention and an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.
Reynolds earned the starting free safety job entering 2012 after the departure of three Stanford defensive backs to the NFL. No one could have expected what came next.
