College Football Rankings 2011: Stanford Still Must Prove Itself Against Anyone
If Texas didn’t make the Top 10 in the Coaches’ Poll, Stanford would be the only team in the Top 10 to not have played a ranked opponent.
There is an awful lot of faith in a team that has done absolutely nothing to deserve it. Even Boise State went essentially on the road to play Georgia and beat them soundly but Stanford’s best win is at Arizona or home against UCLA.
And things stay just as easy for the Cardinal in coming weeks. They play Colorado, Washington State and Washington before finally playing a moderately tough team in USC on the road.
Remember that Stanford lost one of their best defenders in Shayne Skov for the year two weeks ago and they jumped Boise State after not playing anyone that week.
If you want to talk about setting a team up for failure, look no further.
That’s not to say this team is not good, they are much more than their quarterback Andrew Luck and have dominated their weaker opponents as one would expect.
But at this point in the season, enough is enough with the schedule. Stanford needs to get tested in some capacity or they will see themselves start to lose votes.
