Football Roundtable: ‘Oh boy, the quarterback question’

Stanford currently sits at 1-3 and is just getting into the heart of a schedule deemed to be the most difficult in the nation preseason. To say the least, the Cardinal’s ten-year run of bowl appearances is in jeopardy. Entering the season, however, it was always a possibility that Stanford would start the season 0-4. Although an opening day victory over Northwestern lifted the spirits of the Cardinal faithful, the three consecutive losses have disheartened many. Now, the game that casual fans and pundits alike pointed to as the first likely win has presented itself: a trip to take on Oregon State. The Daily’s King Jemison, Shan Reddy and Daniel Martinez-Krams talk expectations for the defense, quarterbacks and the Beavers rushing game.

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.

Football roundtable: Can Love conquer Utah?

Costello will be successful against the Utes, the defense’s ability to stop Utah’s quarterback and what Stanford can do to survive the rest of its schedule.
