How to Build a Bully: Inside the Stanford Football Strength Program | Bleacher Report
This is one way that a team can play "smart" football. This is one way an academically advanced school can gain an edge over the factories. I had always liked the idea of working (playing) smarter rather than working (playing) harder. I have often wondered how we could leverage our smart, driven players who may not necessarily rank high in stars, into some benefit on the playing field. I thought PJ's offensive would be a way that we could use our brains and drive to gain an advantage over the big, dumb, pro offense approach, and I think it could be an advantage if we had the hosses. Since we cannot get the hosses, this could be a blueprint for growing the hosses in house from the raw material we have. They are above average smart and presumably very driven, they just need the right "recipe" for success. It could happen.
Go JACKETS! THWG!
Stanford is SO up and down. Bill Walsh or Dennis Green. Then hot garbage. Harbaugh rebuilds it, Shaw takes over. Hot garbage is coming back soon, just you wait....
Do you think CPJ, his staff, or any of GT's administrators have paid any attention to what has been going on at Stanford? Have any of them said anything about it?
Hot garbage for 6 years after Willingham's decent run.
Walsh had 2 crap years, 1 great.
Dennis Green 2 crap 1 decent (losing to GT in Aloha. Big Play Willie Clay!)
Jack Elway 4 crap 1 decent.
You have to go back to Walsh's first stint in the late 70's for 2 seasons like Harbaugh had.
