Pro combat uniforms strike again

Stanford will be taking the field this weekend against Notre Dame without the customary Cardinal colors on.

Instead, Stanford will be wearing their new Nike Pro Combat uniforms featuring deep red jersey and pants, and a black matte helmet.

Head coach David Shaw said that recruits are taking notice of the new style as well, saying that "when Nike unveiled them on Facebook, immediately we heard from our recruits about how excited they were."

Notre Dame and Stanford will kick off at Saturday at 8 on ABC.

Dooley may be getting other offers

After word of this interview leaked out, we hear that a number of SEC universities are considering approaching Derek Dooley about becoming a guest lecturer within their algebra and geometry sections.

Pythagorean theorem?

Wednesday TV

Coach aggressively stands up for his guy

Normally, Stanford head coach David Shaw comes off very relaxed and even keel, but on the Pac-12 teleconference today Shaw got fired up defending Andrew Luck.

When asked about the recent criticism of Luck, Shaw said he thought it was "an absolute joke"

Shaw went on to remind everyone that he spent 9 years in the NFL and evaluated every college quarterback in the country during that span, and he has never seen anyone like Andrew Luck. Shaw added that Luck is doing things that no one else in the nation is doing, even at the NFL level. He's often going into the huddle with four plays, and controlling the play call and protections at the line of scrimmage. 

Shaw went on to say "I was talking to somebody the other day. It's like Charles Woodson. Charles Woodson didn't win the Heisman Trophy off of stats. Charles Woodson won the Heisman Trophy because he was doing something that nobody else in the nation was doing and nobody else has done since then, which is play two positions at a high level. To me, that's what Andrew is. Andrew is doing something that I have not seen anybody do in college football."

Shaw's approach to everything is calculated. Hard to think this wasn't either; but it's always good to hear a coach sticking up for his guy (and in this case, it's hard to disagree with most of what he says). 

More Urban to Ohio State

Bill Greene, who writes for the Ohio State Scout.com site, just tweeted that Urban Meyer and Ohio State have reached an agreement. 

His tweet read: Meyer and OSU reach deal. Formal announcement next week. Signs deal after Michigan. It's done. 

Meyer, who was set to work the game for ESPN, has been reassigned that day. 

Again, this is unconfirmed; but one would think that someone in that position would have it have it rock solid to tweet it out in such a manner.
