Stanford v. Arizona

Despite the fact that I have been at Stanford for the last eight years, yesterday was the first time I had ever gone to a Stanford football game.

touchdown!

To be fair, yesterday's game was the second college football game I had ever been to; the Howard v. Morehouse homecoming game in 1997 was my first. Howard won, partly because it was homecoming, partly because Morehouse is in the division below us. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure that Howard ended up last in the division that year.

Ahem. Back to a good football team.

If you haven't been following college football, Stanford is basically killing it this season (currently ranked #13). Stanford won this game as well, walloping Arizona 42-17.

One complaint about Stanford is our failure to fill the new stadium -- yesterday's game was about 7,000 people short of full capacity, and only 36,679 people came out for the homecoming game against Washington State. I think the Stanford community has still not come to grips about having a good football team.

The fans that were there really came out for the cause, though:
