Stanford coach David Shaw joined the show to talk about the Cardinal’s season and their style of football.
“We’re dinosaurs,” Shaw said, “because we have a fullback and a tight end … let alone multiple players at those positions. But we like it.”
Dan asked if it was harder to recruit because they play a more old-fashioned style. Shaw said not at all. Shaw says offensive linemen love coming there. And there are many positions that Stanford has produced NFL players at — like quarterback and tight end.
Shaw also confirmed that Andrew Luck is a tremendous nerd, and said he can “nerd out” for hours on things like World Cup soccer. Shaw gave great examples of how Luck was a great team player — one game where he didn’t get to pass much but was thrilled because he made all the right run-checkdowns.
