To bad we could not have had a Oklahoma Boise St rematch. Glad TCU beat Wisconsin. Too bad they did not get a chance to play for the championship but the computers gods rule otherwise.

What domination. Stanford clearly lays claim to a national championship. As Harbaugh said yesterday, he promised his players a championship, and he delivered.

Orange Bowl: Stanford Destroys Virginia Tech 40 - 12

Stanford Legend and friend Michael Dotterer sent a text one hour before tonight's Orange Bowl game, reading "GO CARDINAL," so I gave him a call. Dotterer, one of only 24 decorated two sport athletes in Stanford's Hall of Fame, asked me to predict the score of the game. "40 to 10, Cardinal," was my response.

Stanford won 40 to 12, under a 4-touchdown performance by Quarterback Andrew Luck.

As I write this, Stanford Coach Jim Harbaugh's accepting the Orange Bowl trophy. "Hairball," as some Cal Old Blues call him, deserves it. Also, really, and all kidding aside, let's tip our hats to the Stanford Athletics program, which, in an age when athletes as often wind up in a police report as that do on a stats sheet, have produced a number of true student-athletes, who've performed amazingly of late.

Had it not been for a fluke game against Oregon, a game we were winning 21-3 at one point, Stanford would be the undisputed national champion.

How can a team with 1 loss lay claim to a national title when 2 (TCU & whoever wins the NC) others will be undefeated when all is said & done? :rolleyes: Stanford played in the weak Pac-10 & got molly whopped by Oregon. Harbaugh is a good coach, but he did not deliver a championship...the best he's done is 2nd in the conference. He'll be in the NFL or Michigan next year.

Fluke? :rolleyes: Oregon destroyed Stanford 52-27. Not so fast on declaring them undisputed national champions, either. Auburn would probably beat them.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I've said it before...

Stanford is a good team... but they were blown out by Oregon. Stanford has no right or reason to claim even a share of the championship.

IF we had a playoff, then Stanford would have as good of a shot as anyone... but without a championship... they simply can't have even a sliver of a claim on a championship in a year when their 1 loss came at the hands of an undefeated team and was a blowout win on top of that.

Fluke? Stanford was leading 21 to 3 after the first quarter then leading 31 to 24 at the half then allowed 28 unanswered points.

That doesn't sound like a fluke but rather a choke!

If it was not for a last minute field goal, Stanford would have lost to USC. How about the touchdown in the last 5 minutes which gave Stanford the win over Arizona State. That doesn't sound like a team worthy of being called 'National Champion'

I'm sorry but Stanford has no legitimate claim to a national championship.

Oh well. Oregon lost.

But Andrew Luck decided to return.

Therefore, I expect Stanford to be the preseason #1 pick.

And barring a disaster, we should win a national championship next year.

No, they won't be preseason #1. It'll likely be Ohio State, Oklahoma, Alabama, LSU, or Oregon. With Harbaugh gone to the 49ers, Stanford lacks a good coach. Stanford won't win the Pac-10, either.

I might even root for Stanford next year... but I too have my doubts. Even if they get a good new coach, he'll still be new.

I think even if they are good, it is doubtful they will be pre-season #1. I expect an SEC team or perhaps Ohio St or some other similarly high-profile team will have that ranking.

Even with a new coach, though, I'd expect to see Stanford in the top ten pre-season next year.

Please! Oregon lost by a last second field goal. Let's not put more in to their loss then it really was. Had Stanford not gotten lucky a couple of times this year (last second field goal against USC comes to mind), it is very likely they could have found themselves playing in San Diego (with a 9-3 record) not Miami (with 11-1).

I seriously doubt Stanford will be ranked in the pre-season top 10 (may be ranked just outside it) nor do I expect them to finish any higher then 2nd in the North Division of the PAC-12.

Does the new conference start next year? Hopefully, the conference title game adds some excitement to the conference.

Hard to believe isn't it? The first PAC-12 Championship game is scheduled for December 3, 2011.

I think Utah and Colorado will add plenty of excitement. I am disappointed though that they only implemented divisions for football.

Now, my Big 12 is down to 10...Dang, 2011 will be different.
