After following Cardinal sports for four years, this is my final column.
To say the position of NBA head coach is in a state of flux would be like calling Kobe’s shot selection a bit excessive.
Five years ago, if I had made a list of the top American cities in which I would least like to run out of gas, Oakland may have taken the cake.
As former athletic director Bob Bowlsby moves on to (arguably) greener pastures by becoming commissioner of the Big 12, Stanford is now tasked with filling the hole in its heart left by one of the most successful people to ever hold the position.
I bet you’re scanning your memory for a game-winning three that capped off an improbable comeback hoops victory over Cal. Or you’re remembering one of the NCAA tournament games that catalyzed one of five consecutive Final Four runs for the women’s team.
But one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and for the Stanford men’s basketball team–your 2012 NIT champions–finishing the season as the 69th best team in the nation never felt so sweet.
There’s home-court advantage, and then there’s what the 2012 class of Stanford women’s basketball accomplished in its four years on the Farm.
So what are sports journalists to do? Should they ignore the extracurricular lives of athletes whose actions off the field may very well impact in-game performance
It wasn’t convincing, but the Stanford women’s lacrosse team managed to complete a thrilling come-from-behind victory, beating James Madison 14-13 at Cagan Stadium in a matchup of top-10 foes. The No. 6 Cardinal (1-3) won its first game of the season behind five goals and three assists from senior Emilie Boeri, who was later…
No. 4 Stanford (9-2, 6-1 MPSF) eked out a five-set victory in one of the nation’s most thrilling sagas, beating the No. 4 49ers 18-25, 25-17, 22-25, 25-20, 15-12. The victory snapped the Card’s three-match losing streak to Long Beach State and continued Stanford’s recent dominance.
Following a devastating road trip through Washington, the Stanford men’s basketball team hopes to right the ship Sunday when it travels across the Bay to take on rival California.
Freshman guard Chasson Randle had instant-impact potential long before he arrived on the Farm, but his contributions thus far have exceeded any and all expectations
The road to a 3-1 conference start has been far from flawless, yet in the fourth season under the direction of head coach Johnny Dawkins, the Stanford men’s basketball team appears to have finally turned a corner and is now on pace to see its first legitimate postseason action since the departure of Brook and Robin Lopez in the spring of 2008
The Cardinal (3-0) advanced to the semifinals of the NIT Season Tip-Off on Tuesday night, beating Colorado State 64-52 in Maples Pavilion.
Prior to the season, sophomore point guard Aaron Bright looked like he could be the odd man out in Stanford’s rotation. Now, he just may be the best player on the team
One year ago today, gun to your head, you’re forced to make a decision: Andrew Luck or Jim Harbaugh? The one you pick stays, while the other ventures into the depths of the NFL, destined to appear only on Sundays and in Ugg commercials.
It’s hard out here for a writer majoring in psychology. I’m what the good folks in touch with the job market refer to as “unemployable.” Thanks, guys!
If Andrew Luck makes a one-handed catch in 2008 and only 34,258 fans witness it, does his miraculous toe tap make a sound?
If you are currently an undergrad, I want you to think of the last time during your academic career when a coach of any Stanford sport was fired.
When senior Chris Derrick came to the Farm in the fall of 2008, he and the Stanford men’s cross country team had one goal in mind.
I grew up in Daytona Beach, Fla., a town primarily known for Spring Break, NASCAR and driving on the beach. The warm ocean was a good place to learn to surf (despite being the shark-bite capital of the world), and the public schools prepared me adequately for Stanford’s rigorous academics. However, what I realize now is that it is an area lacking the rich diversity many of us have come to take for granted in our time on the Farm.
