On the Stanford podcast with Jerry F:

#1 Jerry taking a look at a couple of Stanford men’s last two games the Cardinal had to be happy to get wins against the Arizona Wildcats Sat Dec 19th 78-75 and a win over Cal State Bakersfield Mon Dec 21, 63-50.

#2 The two wins over Arizona and Cal State Bakersfield were Stanford’s third and fourth wins in a row. A good streak to carry over as the Cardinal head to Oregon State on New Year’s eve and Oregon on Jan 2.

#3 The win over the Wildcats on Dec 19th was the first time the Cardinal won a game  in 20 games against the Wildcats. The Stanford defense prevented Arizona from scoring and held them to only 35% meanwhile the Cardinal were able to open it up on offense with 61%.

On the Cardinal Football podcast with Jerry F:

#1 The Stanford Cardinal whose last game was canceled due to a Coronavirus outbreak as they were scheduled to play the Washington State Cougars at Stanford on Saturday. It was a setback because the Cardinal are still looking to get their first win of the season.

#2 Jerry it’s been two weeks since the Cardinal have seen game action that was going back to playing against the Colorado Buffaloes at Stanford on Nov 14th in a close 35-32 loss. Not playing for two weeks certainly is too much time away from competition and it takes away a team’s timing and executing the playbook.

#3 For Cardinal quarterback Davis Mills in his last outing against the Buffaloes 327 yards passing and one keeper. Davis was key in the Cardinal high scoring game despite the loss he was key under center.

#4The Cardinal did get a lot of offensive yards and was in a shootout can you see them having that same momentum going into the Big Game this Friday night at Cal?

#5 Both Stanford and Cal have had two loses and have had two games canceled due to Covid issues. Both teams are hoping for no outbreaks and to get a game in and most importantly to get in the win column. Jerry how do you see this anticipated Big Game on Friday night.

On the Stanford Cardinal podcast with Jerry F:

#1 The Stanford Cardinal (0-2) played a razor close game last Saturday for their home opener losing 35-32 against the Colorado Buffaloes in spite of the Cardinal scoring 16 points in the fourth quarter they still fell short.

#2 Cardinal quarterback Davis Mills had a quarterback keeper, worked hard throwing for 327 yards in 31 for 56 passes.

#3 The Buffaloes (2-0) running back Jarek Broussard carried for 121 yards that helped give Colorado good field position on offense and running back Sam Noyer who carried for only 36 yards and scored two touchdowns helped the offense.

#4 Likewise for the Cardinal they got their scoring mostly on the ground with running back Austin Jones and Mills who carried in for a touchdown each. Jerry do you see Mills and the Cardinal going to the ground game again against Washington State?

#5 Washington State Cougars (1-1) come to Stanford after a tough loss last Saturday 43-29 to the Oregon Ducks the Cougars did win the week before in their opener against the Oregon State Beavers (0-2) 38-28. Jerry set this game up between Wazzu and Stanford for this Saturday.

On the Cardinal podcast with Jerry F:

#1 Jerry how big was it that Stanford’s quarterback David Mills and wide receiver Connor Weddington both missed opening week in Oregon against the Ducks?

#2 The Cardinals’ defensive end Trey LaBounty also was missing from action last Saturday as he also was positive for Covid-19. The Cardinal lost quite handedly 35-14 and missing LaBounty and the defense was a big part of that loss.

#3 As of Tuesday Stanford head coach David Shaw indicated that a fourth unnamed player has also contracted Covid. As of Wednesday the Cardinal who host the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday have not indicated if the game would be postponed as of yet.

#4 Shaw also said he has no idea of the timeline when the players would be back but at midweek knows that some decisions have to be made soon and the Cardinal are trying to avoid postponing the game on Saturday.

#5 Last week the Cardinal had Jack West starting who threw 154 yards and third stringer Tanner Mckee who threw for 62 yards neither threw for a touchdown in the loss. The Buffaloes got by the UCLA Bruins in a shootout 48-42 in their last game last Saturday the Buffaloes can provide a lot of offense. Jerry set this game up for us.

On Cardinal podcast with Jerry F:

#1 The Stanford Cardinal quarterback David Mills will start against the Oregon Ducks in the season opener has had a good career with the Cardinal in three years he’s thrown for 1960 yards, 11 touchdowns and five interceptions.

#2 Mills has done a great job avoiding the getting picked off throwing only five times in three seasons under center for the Cardinal.

#3 The Oregon Ducks head coach Mario Cristobal has not tipped his hand as to who he will have start at quarterback on Saturday against the Cardinal. Cristobal is watching very carefully his two top choices Tyler Shough and Anthony Brown. One thing for sure it’ll keep the Cardinal guessing as they will study film on both players.

#4 Cristobal added that there’s no value in in giving up every detail in what they’re doing. So the selection of who he will start is one of the best kept secrets coming into the season opener at Oregon.

#5 Stanford head coach David Shaw enters his ninth year at the helm and has a winning record of 86-34. Shaw has had a incredible career at Stanford which includes going to the Rose Bowl twice beating Wisconsin in 2012 and losing the following year to the Michigan State Spartans in 2013.

Stanford Cardinal basketball podcast with Jerry Feitelberg: Cardinal survive second half against Utes for win photo

On the Cardinal podcast with Jerry:

#1 Jerry how important was it that Stanford (19-9) was coming off two wins over the Washington schools and then facing a team they had trouble with the last time they met in the Utah Utes (15-3) and got the victory 70-62.

#2 Like your headline read last night the Cardinal led from wire to wire in this one and never looked back it looked like the Cardinal executed on defense to hold the Utes back just enough to get a eight point win.

#3 In the second half the Utes fought right back outscoring the Cardinal 40-36 and it was just a margin of error that could have cost the Cardinal in that second half

#4 Head coach Jerod Haase said the game was not a thing of beauty but the Cardinal hung on just enough to win it

#5 It doesn’t get any easier as the Cardinal host the Colorado Buffaloes (21-7) Sunday night at Maples Jerry tell us how you see this match up.
