Here is a brief but triumphant outline of the Stanford Cardinals, representing Stanford University.
Oct 2015: The Stanford Cardinals beat UCLA in a dominating 56-35 win at Stanford Stadium. The sophomore of Castle Rock, Christian McCaffrey, had a record night in the win by running for 369 yards and tallying four rushing touchdowns.
Nov, 2015: Stanford beats Notre Dame in a very close game of 38-36.
Dec, 2015: The team won the Pac-12 Championship with 41-22 victory against USC, and Christian McCaffrey made a record-setting performance.
Jan, 2016: Even though McCaffrey lost the Heisman Trophy in New York, he dazzled everyone in the Rose bowl game and went on to set a Rose Bowl record with 368 all-purpose yards, leading the team to a knockout win over Iowa. The Stanford Cardinals beat the Iowa Hawkeyes in the 102nd Rose Bowl game to a 45 - 16 win and entered the New Year with the most coveted trophy.
Stanford has been winning games consistently. David Shaw could be one of the reasons for this transformation over the past year. Shaw graduated from Stanford in 1995 and in the history of Stanford; Shaw is the 34th Head Coach. Shaw didn’t show much extraordinary performance during the first few years of his coaching tenure and was mostly hated by Stanford lovers. However, over the last few years, he seems to have become a new man. Winning is fun. As much as the fans enjoy watching the winning games, Shaw loves them even more!
David Shaw said. "Belief in the work we put in, belief in our preparation, belief in our struggles, belief that our struggles helped us to be a better team.”
