The Silver Bullet

An opinion in popular sports


They never said it couldn’t be done. They never said there was no chance. No one gave up. The Spartans pulled it off. Coming off the five-point loss to Washington in week one, the Spartans were prepared to take on Bay Area rival Stanford. There is nothing sweeter in my mind than the red-headed step child of Bay Area College Football knocking off the pride and joy.

Final: Spartans 35, Cardinal 34

Trent Edwards, starting QB for Stanford, had a dominating day going 18-28 for 233 yards and 4 TDs. Evan Moore, WR, caught only four balls, but for 82 yards and 2 scores. In the second quarter, Stanford led 27-7.

But it wasn’t enough…. the Spartans would not be denied.


 The Spartans just kept chugging, sweating, and playing. They took advantage of fumbles and turnovers and the defense played well. But that wasn’t it… What made it happen?

Could it have been the Spartans 25 first downs? The 342 rushing yards? 184 of them coming from Yonus Davis alone?

Nope. It’s Dick Tomey. The coach is molding a team. The coach is making it happen.



Okay, Dick. After two weeks you’ve got us believing.

Let’s see what your boys can do.
