Stanford Returns to the Sunshine State

October 28, 2014

Stanford has barely even tried to make inroads into Florida under Brian Kudron's watch, instead focusing on Texas and the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions. Senior All-American safety Wayne Lyons was the last Floridian to join the Cardinal, but now another dominant safety from the Sunshine State will look to follow in Lyons' footsteps.

The nation's top free safety prospect and 56th ranked prospect overall, Chad McBride of Deerfield Beach in Broward County in southern Florida, committed to Stanford today, picking the Cardinal over nearby Miami.

"Stanford just had everything I wanted in a school," McBride said. "They've become a bigtime program, and they're one of the most elite schools in the world, academically. Distance from home was never important to me or my family, they understand and appreciate what a degree from Stanford would mean, so they gave their blessing to let me go away for college. So I'm 100% on board with Stanford and Coach Kudron."

The 6'0, 210-pound McBride is an elite combination of speed and power; he will bring some of that fabled Florida speed to the Farm, and will hit like a freight train in run support as well.

Game Notes
The Trojans are always one of the most talented teams in the conference, but Stanford has been the ghost in their machine in recent years, with a stunning six straight wins against their SoCal rivals. This year the Trojans have stumbled in tough road games against Oregon and Arizona State, but they are always formidable at home, and still have a shot at the Pac-12 South title, so they will be very, very motivated when Stanford takes the field at the Coliseum.

Junior quarterback Cody Kessler is smaller than the lineage of QBs USC has put out in the last decade (6'1, 215), but he has had a stellar season, completing 60% of his passes while throwing for 17 touchdowns and only three interceptions, while racking up 1609 yards. He has a deep and dangerous array of weapons to throw the ball too, with 6'5, 216-pound behemoth senior Kyle Prater being the most prominent. Prater has 29 catches for 477 yards and six touchdowns, and is essentially uncoverable with his dazzling combination of physicality and speed down the field. Matching his six touchdowns is All-American senior tight end Christian Thomas, who also has 26 catches for 335 yards. Fellow senior Xavier Grimble is another big mismatch at tight end as well, with 19 receptions for 287 yards and four scores. Senior Victor Blackwell and redshirt sophomore Mark Jacobs, a former 5* wideout out of Greenwood, Arkansas, are not physically imposing, and neither have scored this year, but both are very capable possession receivers.

The Trojans boast an impressive speed-power duo at tailback in junior Amir Carlisle (521 yards, 5.7 YPC, 6 TDs) and redshirt freshman Ian Fields (543 yards, 5.4 YPC, 5 TDs).

Up front the Trojans are an intriguing mix of youth and experience, along with finesse and brute strength. They start true freshmen at both tackle spots, with former Stanford recruit Nick Cooper manning Kessler's blindside at LT, and Iowa native Josh Greene occupying the other. Sophomore Chris Young is evolving into a leader and star at center, and he is flanked on both sides by 742 pounds of destruction. At left guard, Los Angeles native Marcus Martin is in his third year as a full-time starter, and is a mauling 6'3, 352 pounds. But even he is dwarfed by 6'6, 390-pound redshirt junior Aundrey Walker from Cleveland.

Defensively, the Trojans have been surprisingly mediocre at defending the run so far in 2014, considering the talent they put on the field. Up front, junior Greg Townsend and sophomore Michael Dorsey are both big and fast off the edges. Townsend leads USC with 12 TFL and 3.5 sacks. The middle of their line is occupied by 310-pound senior George Uko and 338-pound run-stuffer Antwaun Woods.

At linebacker, the Trojans are missing Dion Bailey, one of their best playmakers, but you'd never tell, as sophomore Eric Peterson has filled in brilliantly and doesn't look out of place playing with All-Pac-12 candidates Anthony Sarao (team-leading 51 tackles) and senior Lamar Dawson.

SC starts two fifth year seniors at corner, Anthony Brown and Patrick Hall. Both are big and physical, and Hall has blazing speed to boot. Behind them the Trojans are young at the corner position, but true freshman Martin Douglas has a very, very bright future.

At free safety, senior Demetrius Wright leads the Trojans with two interceptions, and although his speed and tackling abilities are perhaps only average at best, he is very rarely caught out of position, and his reaction time is unmatched. Next to him at strong safety is 6'2, 198-pound redshirt sophomore Jason Adams. Adams is excellent in both coverage and run support, and USC coaches believe he will be their next All-American safety.

Cardinal Conquest
Stanford digs deep for seventh straight win over USC

LOS ANGELES, CA - Everything that could've gone against Stanford, did.

USC controlled the trenches, establishing their own running game while holding Stanford to a meager 29 yards net rushing. The Trojans picked off Brett Nottingham twice, and Cody Kessler appeared to put enough distance between SC and Stanford with a touchdown pass late in the third quarter.

But the Cardinal came to life in the final stanza, forcing a Kessler fumble to set up first and goal inside the 10, which finally led to a touchdown. After holding the Trojans to the field goal, the fifth year senior Nottingham put his team on his back, completing nine of 12 passes on the ensuing drive, culminating in an improbable touchdown pass to tight end Kevin Jackson with 16 seconds left, giving Stanford a dramatic 18-17 victory in Los Angeles.

It was improbable because Jackson wasn't the intended target on the play. The pass was intended for Marcus Davenport, Stanford's other tight end, who was on the opposite end of the formation and was running a short curl route in the endzone; but Nottingham's timing was off, and his pass hit wide receiver Ty Montgomery - who was running a slant - in the shoulder pads. The ball ricocheted - right into the arms of a sprawling Jackson, who was coming across the formation along the goalline.

"That wasn't how we drew it up, that's for sure," Stanford coach Brian Kudron said with a sly grin after the game. "But today was a testament to the leadership on this team, and the will of this team. These guys have developed a never-give-up mentality, and that's why there was never any panic out there. We were facing a very tough opponent today, and we got ourselves up against it. But we never gave up, and we never doubted our ability to respond. The leaders on this team are unmatched anywhere in the country, I absolutely believe that. Brett Nottingham, Ty Montgomery, Cameron Fleming, Wayne Lyons, Charlie Hopkins - I wouldn't trade our seniors for anything. We passed one test today, and we've got an even bigger one next week. And we'll be ready."

Game Notes
The latest edition of the Game of the Century features the Pac-12's best budding rivalry, as top-ranked Stanford will face their most taunting task of the season when they enter the hornets' nest that is Autzen Stadium to take on the #2 Oregon Ducks. The Ducks have won 13 games in a row on their home field, and always play with extra intensity in Eugene, fueled by their rabid followers.

Bryan Bennett is in his third year at the helm of Chip Kelly's offense, and while he is still an average passer (he's completed only 50% of his passes and has 12 interceptions to go with his 21 touchdowns this year), he has tortured the Cardinal in his previous two starts against them: he threw for 318 yards and three touchdowns while adding 65 yards rushing in a 45-38 Ducks win at Autzen two years ago, and threw for 243 yards and five scores with an additional 86 yards and a score on the ground in Stanford's wild 52-49 overtime win on the Farm last year. De'Anthony Thomas won't be there to take handoffs from him however, out for the season with a broken elbow. In his place will be 236-pound junior Tra Carson, who has rumbled for 1094 yards and a dozen touchdowns on the season.

The Oregon passing game is formidable and explosive. The Ducks are three-deep at tight end with Colt Lyerla, Christian French, and Curtis White. Lyerla is Oregon's #1 receiver with 34 catches for 573 yards and four touchdowns, averaging 16.8 yards a catch. Junior wideouts Devon Blackmon and Tacoi Sumler are blazing fast; Blackmon has eight touchdowns and averages 18.2 yards per catch, while Sumler has six scores of his own and an eye-popping 19.2 YPC.

Defensively, senior defensive end Koa Ka'ai is the leader for Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year. He leads the Ducks with 56 tackles and has a stunning 29 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks. He scored a touchdown against Stanford last year, and will have to be accounted for. Opposite him, the injured Brad Davis will be replaced by 270-pound redshirt sophomore Jason Horne, who has 3.5 sacks of his own. The Ducks are exceptionally young inside, starting a true freshman (Donald Douglas) and true sophomore (Ashton Cameron), and backing them up with a redshirt freshman (Todd Jones) and redshirt sophomore (Eric White). That could make them susceptible to Stanford's patented running game.

The opposite holds true at linebacker, where the Ducks start two seniors (Derrick Malone and Anthony Wallace) and a junior (Tyson Coleman). Coleman and Malone are undersized but exceptionally fast while flanking the hulking 242-pound Wallace.

In the secondary, senior Dior Mathis is undersized at cornerback (5'8, 171), but he has amazing speed and awareness, and leads the Ducks with five picks on the year. Opposite him is redshirt sophomore Courtney Weber, who is also on the smaller side (5'10, 167). Redshirt junior Ifo Ekpre-Olomu is an excellent nickelback. Oregon has a pair of very skilled and experienced fifth year seniors at safety as well: James Scales and Erick Dargan.

Stanford slays the Autzen demons with heart-stopping win in Eugene

EUGENE, OR - For the last four years now, the Stanford-Oregon matchup has been one of the most dramatic and exciting rivalries in all of college football, with the two teams' contrasting offensive styles creating high-scoring, high-anxiety shootouts.

The 2014 edition may have been the best one yet.

In a surreal, driving snowstorm in Eugene, Stanford conquered the house of horrors known as Autzen Stadium, as Brett Nottingham connected with Gary Harris in the near corner of the endzone on the final play of the game for a 13 yard touchdown, giving the #1 Cardinal an improbable 37-35 win over the #2 Ducks.

The heroics of Nottingham and running back Remound Wright were just enough to overcome another brilliant showing by Oregon quarterback Bryan Bennett. The two teams left nothing in reserve; the exhaustion and fatigue evident on the faces of all the players on both sides in the aftermath. For Oregon, it was a bitter, soul-crushing type of exhaustion. For Stanford, jubilation and relief were the prevailing elements as the team gathered to salute their fans and band in a corner of a suddenly silent Autzen Stadium, while several players celebrated by making snow angels on the turf.

"I don't know if I can find the right words to capture this moment," a celebratory Brian Kudron said. "I've sung the praises of the resiliency and resolve of this team so often this season, but this takes all of that to a new level, entirely. To come into a place like this, in conditions like these, and to pull this one out of the fire like we did? This was a special, special day for a special, special group of kids. I think these guys proved beyond a shadow of a doubt today that this is a championship-caliber team. The journey isn't over yet, but I think we silenced whatever doubters we had left today."

Re: Stanford Cardinal (NCAA 12)

Must've been a really satisfying win there, pulling it out on the last play. Definitely a good chance of getting that BCS Championship appearence finally.
