Stanford rolls over WSU in second half


As usual it's really late and we're just getting done with all of our items for tomorrow's paper. On the link we will give the wherewithal you need to read everything we've written tonight. Maybe. Read on.


• Well those tight ends were really good, weren't they? Yes, Stanford's trio of tights are as good as you are going to see anywhere. But you know what? The Cardinal defense is actually better then their offense. At least this day it was. They flew around with a speed I wasn't expecting. They came from about 22 different angles. They confused Jeff Tuel, they confused the WSU receivers – brought to you by Pam spray on Saturday – and they confused the offensive line. All in all the Cougar offense was just north of impotent against the Cardinal defense. For one of the few times in Paul Wulff's tenure, the offense let down the WSU defense. “First half we got a couple turnovers and I thought our defense was really good, stopped them in the running game really well,” Wulff said. “In the defense of our defense, late in the game I thought they just got tired. They did some really good things. If we could have given our defense a little more help with our offense, I think they would have hung in there and played them as well, probably, as anyone has this year.” … Well, here's my game story and John Blanchette's column. That's what's up right now.


• That's what we have for you right now. We'll be back in the morning. Until then …
