Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh didn't miss the Pac-10 conference call Tuesday because he was ducking reporters who wanted to ask about his reprimand for criticizing calls that went against the Cardinal at Notre Dame.
His wife, Sarah, was in the hospital after having a baby, which qualifies as a good excuse.
Defensive coordinator Ron Lynn pinch hit for Harbaugh.
"Everybody is doing well," Lynn said.
Lynn said Sarah had a girl around 3 a.m. Tuesday morning after induced labor. He didn't yet know the name.
