Stanford has won 10+ games in four of the past five seasons. Before Shaw was hired, that happened four times in the previous 119 seasons in Palo Alto.

[Antwaan] Randle El is the closest thing in my mind," Ferentz said of the former Indiana star. "I still think if Randle El had played at Florida State, he would have won two Heismans. He was such a dynamic player."
