Congratulations to Jim Harbaugh and Stanford

As my four-and-a-half year old granddaughter would say “You did it!”  Everything’s coming up oranges at Stanford.

Whoduvthunkit!  An Ivy League school, one of the top three in the country, has just become a football power.  To maintain Stanford’s football status, athletic director Bob Bowlsby has just made a preemptive offer to Harbaugh to keep him on the farm.  Stanford sports enthusiasts hope he accepts.

Two other football comments.

Have you noticed that every player, in college or the pros, is labeled a superstar or underrated, despite half being under average by definition?

Would ESPN kindly instruct its female sideline reporters to ask intelligent questions?  For example, why not ask about offensive or defensive schemes, rather than such inane questions about why your team is ahead or behind, and what are you going to tell the team at halftime.  And so on.
