Stanford has surprised many college football fans with its ascension to the nation's elite in the past several seasons. This rise has been accompanied by some great coaches, such as Jim Harbaugh and David Shaw, as well as some outstanding players, such as Andrew Luck and Jonathan Martin. 

In 2012, Stanford will have to move on after losing some of their best players to the NFL. While losing those players has certainly created some weaknesses for the Cardinal, Head Coach David Shaw has a lot of strengths to be optimistic about.
