Well Robin the Terrible arrived in the Rose Bowl year. She did drive Monty away and maybe Ty saw the handwriting on the wall

Ty was just pining for the famous beaches in/around South Bend.

No, he just loved the rose petals that the Domer faithful tossed on his path in Year One on the famousWalk. When he had to step around the land mines in Year Two he had other thoughts.

Plus he missed playing on the Stanford Golf Course year around not something one can do in south bend, not to mention not having to waiting for a membership to open up or pay the yearly dues.

He just felt Notre Dame was a step up in the world of coaching for him. I heard him describe going to ND as a "no brainer".

Never.  We never offered too many defensive linemen.  Not once.


RE: Class of 2022 - BobK - 12-06-2020

1993. Under Bill Walsh


RE: Class of 2022 - SamuelMcF - 12-07-2020

A bunch of high-confidence CBs to the good guys for RB Arlen Harris Jr today. He announces on 12/18.


RE: Class of 2022 - Papa John - 12-07-2020

20+ Power 5 offers for Harris including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri and Penn State (his other favorites).


RE: Class of 2022 - Publius - 12-08-2020

His dad played in the NFL.  He's coming to the Farm.

Yeah, we tend to do very well with NFL sons. (ESPECIALLY NFL sons who are RBs.) Academics also noted as a critical factor for him.

My kingdom for a 4* defender!

From your lips to someone important's ears!  Honestly, I would settle for enough three star defenders that we have adequate depth at the defensive positions, but that is a multi-year effort.

RE: Class of 2022 - MVDan - 12-18-2020

4 Star running back Arlen Harris Jr. from Missouri has committed to Stanford this morning.


RE: Class of 2022 - BobK - 12-18-2020

Thanks Dan. Outstanding

Off to a sorely-needed strong start in this class. I believe we're actually going for 2 RBs and 2 TEs, so having 4*s in the fold already means we're now playing with house money at both positions.

Still, my kingdom for more 4* defenders! (Thank you Aaron Armitage for signing!)


RE: Class of 2022 - Papa John - 12-18-2020

In a desperate move for any shred of positive recruiting news, I note that 247sports now ranks Stanford's 2022 class at #2 in the conference, #17 nationally.


RE: Class of 2022 - Phogge - 12-18-2020

They need ultra mean guys like Murphy, Mauro and Gardner. Not everybody should be an Eagle Scout.

To be honest, even a well stocked high-3* defense will do.  I mean, would it be too much to ask to not have to rely on former walk-ons to have a two deep?  We have two scholarship defensive tackles on the roster, one of whom is a true freshman.  We should have twice that many.  We have five scholarship defensive ends; we should have 7 or 8.  With some shuffling, we have seven scholarship outside linebackers, but three are injured and one is a former walk on.  We have eight inside linebackers, though one is a converted former walk-on safety and one is a converted OLB, and 4 are injured.  Nine cornerbacks is the one position where we have adequate depth, even with injuries to 3.  We have six safeties, but I think half are converted CBs or former walk-ons.  All in all, we have 36 scholarship defensive players, of which I think 4 were are former walk-ons who subsequently received a scholarship.  I don't want to denigrate them by saying they didn't earn it, but many of those were because extra scholarships were available than because the walk-on performed exceptionally.  We should have closer to 40+ scholarship recruited players for a well-stocked, well-recruited defense.  A few 4* difference makers scattered throughout would be great, but especially for a defense, a weak link can be exploited by a competent offense, so bringing up the low end probably gets you more bang for the buck.

Critically true. We hear talk about how coaches (generally ours) need to "scheme somebody open", and sometimes they do need to do so. However, if you have a situation where your player is reliably better than the man covering him, you don't need much scheme to dominate the opposing defense. Stanford's defense is often in that situation, where there is no real answer to a physical mismatch. You hide it as much as you can, but if the opposing offense is at all competently run, they will find it and kill us with it. It used to be that Stanford lacked adequate speed on defense. To some degree, that has been attacked, but unfortunately it is still an issue. Couple that with poor tackling and no depth and you have a real problem.
