The more I watch of Joey Alfieri the more I think he can have in impact at RB as a freshman. Anyone else agree?

True Frosh or Redshirt?  I know he plays both positions, but isn't he recruited as a LB?  What makes you think he will be better than Son of Ed? Or for that matter Son of Barry. With the amount of depth we have at RB nowadays combined with the complexity of the playbook, a frosh making an impact is a tall order.  I hope you are right because that means he is a stud.

True Freshman. Alfieri a different kind of runner 220+ lbs "powerback" than any that we have on the roster for next year. Obviously this can go out of the window if we end up recruiting another powerback in this class but unless I am mistaken their aren't any publicly on the board right now

Stanford has a new offer out for the 2014 class: defensive end Uriah Leiataua from Compton. Not sure if this is a plan B or if his performance on the field attracted Shaw and assistants. Anyone?

LDS so he'll be in the 2016 class.

Went to the same school as Richard Sherman.  Is he really LDS?  That's pretty cool, I've never heard of a Mormon from Compton, but good for him.

A considerable amount of analysts at 247 placed a Stanford commit prediction for Solomon Thomas today.

Yep, for the last couple months, every prediction is that he will go to Stanford, which would be really nice.

I suspect that 24/7 doesn't know that he is still working on his application, or how many football players are admitted to Stanford.

Considering the state of our d line, he might play a role (or even start!) immediately.

But I hope you'll forgive a mostly non-partisan current affairs comment.

Garvin wrote a pretty good description of the sometimes overlooked war narratives at the museum.  The letter from the Marine describing reaching the beach by going through floating arms, legs, torsos and heads. More eloquent history than any scholar could write.

Query:  Do you think the current crop of politicians of all stripes who have this country tied in knots,  would be acting as they are if they'd had to fight on Tarawa or Omaha Beach, or Bastogne or Bataan?   There was something about that shared national experience and the effect it had on servicemen and all Americans that made them more practical and reasonable.  Not without differing ideas,  but not so immune to the common good as a value or a "given" in how we viewed our political differences.
Safe to say my kid is the only Stanford neuroscience PhD who's also a women's roller derby team captain.

I assume Dalton Schultz watched the game.  I hope he thought to himself: "Stanford could really use a guy like me."

How about a separate thread for this topic?  When we see a new post in the class o 2014, shouldn't that mean there is a new post about a recruit in the class of 2014?

I don't disagree with you, OutsiderFan, but the fact is that this thread began meandering two weeks ago:

http://thecardboard.org/board/index.php/topic,6741.585.html

Given the CardBoard's historic and apparently immutable tendency to thread drift, the fact that this one managed to last nearly a year before going awry is nothing short of astonishing.

Any time I can participate in history-- whether it's staying up 'till 1 a.m. to see the Greatest Upset of All Time  or to help derail a thread that had remained on topic far too long--  then I'm your man.

This is just nostalgia talking. Somehow the WWII generation's practicality and reasonableness didn't stop Joe McCarthy, massive resistance to black civil rights or the Vietnam War (among other things.) They did great things, but let's not make them into supermen.

Well this one has an expiration date, like the Class of 2013 thread.  The one whose duration I think will really astonish is News from Stanford East started by, I think, FarmBoy.  That one, I believe, is still unsullied.
