    Andrew Luck now calling own plays at Stanford

    Expanding the resume.

    It’s not enough that Stanford’s Andrew Luck leads one of the best teams in the country, as well as the race for the Heisman Trophy.
    Now, he’s calling his own plays.

    Coach David Shaw has started allowing his cerebral senior quarterback to make his own decisions at the line of scrimmage, something Washington coach Steve Sarkisian described as a “lost art.” Shaw said the Cardinal allowed Luck to do that a little bit against USC two years ago, but have had the strategy — borrowed from former NFL coach Jon Gruden — mostly on the shelf since then.

    “It really helps him play the game faster,” Shaw said. “We have one of the few quarterbacks in college football who can truly do it.”

    Big game of the week.

    The last time the Oregon Ducks played Cal, their high-flying offense ground to a virtual halt and they needed a punt return for a touchdown to escape the Bay Area with a sloppy 15-13 victory last season.

    Just for those who still have doubts that this kids is about as sure a franchise QB you can possibly get.

    The kid is basically a pro QB playing in college. Take him off Stanford and you have a similar result as with the Colts. I'd really love to see him play in the National Championship against one of the SEC teams or maybe even versus Landry Jones in one of the other Bowls.

    Reminiscent of Leinhart vs Young. Except Luck and Jones will amount to something at the next level.
    "Fundamentals, technique, execution -- primary. Scheme -- secondary."

    "We will incorporate an aggressive, up-tempo, attacking style in all three phases of the game."


    "Our team will play with discipline, poise, and maximum effort."

    "I want us to be the best tackling team in the NFL, the best team in pursuit, I want to take the ball away from other teams, I want to rattle the opposing quarterback every opportunity we get."

    I agree wholeheartedly. What's going to kill Stanford is the SOS. Even if they beat Oregon & USC, it's unlikely to get them to #2. Just too many things have to break right, but I guess there's still a shot. You figure either Alabama or LSU will be in the NC, but one of them vs Stanford in the other Bowls would be amazing. Luck vs Saban's defense... oh man. That would be awesome.
