‘It’s just not fair’: An oral history of The Play and the 1982 fake Daily Cal

On Nov. 20, 1982, California shocked Stanford on a last-second miracle that is remembered to this day as one of the most iconic moments in college football history. After Stanford kicked a last-minute field goal to go up 20-19, Cal returned a kickoff for a touchdown with time expiring on a play that involved five lateral passes, an errant trombonist and enough mayhem to last a lifetime.

Football preview: Linebackers

Last year, Stanford’s defense seemed to lack that one star in its linebacker core. Coming off the departures of Martinez and Anderson, the Cardinal’s lack of experience occasionally reared its ugly head.

By the numbers: Stanford vs. Kansas State

No. 8 Stanford (1-0) pulled out a 26-13 win over Kansas State (0-1) on Friday night. The game featured a strong defensive performance from the Cardinal, as well as a solid beginning for the second iteration of Christian McCaffrey’s Heisman campaign. While Stanford certainly didn’t play its best football, it walked out of Week 1…

Men’s basketball falls to sharp-shooting Colorado

The Cardinal didn’t have the shooting night they expected. Neither did Colorado. Unfortunately for Stanford, it only worked in favor of the Buffs. Stanford (11-8, 4-4 Pac-12) fell to Colorado (16-5, 5-3) by a 91-75 margin, as the Buffs shot 49 percent from the field and made an astounding 13 of their 19 three-point attempts. Senior…
