Football round table: Unstoppable force, immovable object

Stanford football enters the Big Game this year with the same record as the Cal Golden Bears for the first time in what seems like forever. The playing field is level, and everything is on the line. The Cardinal have an eight game winning streak in progress, and look to make it nine. Cal has a strong defensive identity and a bowl game for the first time since 2015. Two teams enter, one team leaves. The Daily’s King Jemison, Andrew Tan, and Gregory Block share their thoughts on the aerial strength of the Stanford offense, the Big Game finale for Bryce Love, the meager Cal offensive attack, and how everything (and I mean everything)could go wrong.

Football round table: In an (Oregon) State of confusion

Stanford football (5-4, 3-3 Pac-12) has now lost two in a row after a comeback fell just short in Seattle one week ago. The season seems over already, with the final two games approaching rapidly. Although, one more win will guarantee the team a bowl game, and there’s still the Big Game on the horizon. This week, the Cardinal receive a gift from the NCAA, as they play host to Oregon State this Saturday, in a matchup that has the Cardinal as the heavy favorites. The Daily’s Daniel Martinez-Krams, Andrew Tan, and Shan Reddy grow ever more cynical and ridiculous as the season spirals out of control, and share their thoughts on how bad Oregon State truly is, what to do without JJ Arcega-Whiteside, and what exactly went wrong this season.

Football roundtable: Can the Cardinal overcome the Fighting Irish?

Stanford football is currently ranked seventh in the country coming off of an unbelievable comeback victory in Eugene, Oregon. The Cardinal now face the tall task of heading to South Bend, Indiana to face off against the undefeated, eighth ranked Notre Dame, in what could be the team’s most important game in the last decade. The Daily’s Bobby Pragada, King Jemison, and Gregory Block discuss dealing with the Fighting Irish’s new quarterback, the future direction of the Stanford offense, and the sleeper student to break out in this game.
