They repeatedly copy off of us in referencing family in sport venue naming.

Apparently one family owns their entire athletic department or something, I don't know.

Strange
Yeah, Leland Stamford made a bunch of money during the gold rush exploiting asian immigrant/native American labor and then built a college to celebrate it.

IIRC they used to be the Stamford Redmen and their mascot had a full blown headdress.

That same family basically runs the university now and is thinking about ditching the tree mascot to go back to the full blown Redmen nickname.

It would probably hurt the image of our program if we played the game this fall.

Fortunately it won't be seen by as many since it's not on Fox

As you guys know, I live in the Pac12 region.  All the local Ute fans and sports radio experts ever say about Stanford is that they are a total drain on the conference and a big part of why the Pac has fallen behind the other conferences.  Wouldn’t be surprised if they get kicked out during the next round of TV negotiations.

My Catholic friend told me that birds cannot absolve sins thus they are inferior to people cardinals.

I then asked if cardinals crap in the woods like the Pope and he said no, but he admitted that bears wear funny hats.

I'm pretty sure Stanford was founded by two individuals and they never discussed the mascot.  One went to fill out the paperwork and put the mascot as the Cardinals, unoriginally thinking it up on the spot.  In the meantime, the other one was handling the press around the new university and was being interviewed by a newspaper reporter.  The reporter asked about the mascot and the founder panicked, realizing that it had never been discussed or agreed upon.  He looked around and saw a sickly tree a few feet away.  He pointed it out to the newspaper reporter and the rest is history.

New warning: Don't get in a fight with someone who doesn't even need to bother to buy ink.
