2012 here we come

It’s now been a few days since 11-2 Stanford’s come-from-ahead 41-38 overtime Fiesta Bowl loss to Oklahoma State. Fear not, for there are at least five huge reasons to be optimistic for the Cardinal's 2012 season. 

But first -- aren’t bowl games just grand? Take two highly ranked teams who have never played each other, hype thoroughly for a month, and then let them have at it. Combine the mystery of the unknown (not talking about you, LSU v. Alabama) with weeks of round-the-clock preparation by offensive masterminds. 

Result? An instant classic.
