Harbaugh and How the 49ers Were Built

1

Pretty good article. Especially if any of you are unfamiliar with Harbaugh's turnaround of the Stanford program. It's really nice to see it put into a convenient table where each category slowly improves. Also for your enjoyment: SportsCenter highlights of the greatest upset in college football history. Stanford over USC, 24 - 23, despite being 41 point dogs. Seeing Harbaugh's immediate reflection on the win is awesome: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rG_ouXEm6Mk Live footage of the last play of the game. Think the 49ers aren't getting any love? Imagine the announcers being so dumb-founded by what they're seeing that they relapse into a sort of cognitive dissonance: "Touchdown USC! I mean, Stanford! Touchdown Stanford!" "Clearly they'll go for 1 here to tie it up. I mean, wait, it is tied! They're gonna go for 1 for the win! My goodness!": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtoqK0iAflI&feature=related Stanford over USC in '07, at the time, held the record for the largest spread-to-outcome point differential in college history. 41 point dogs, winning by 1, makes that a 42 point difference. Then in '09, a team was 11 point dogs, and won by 34, making that a 45 point difference. The location? The Coliseum, once again. The score? USC, 21. Stanford, 55. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WeS3VeluAmg Harbaugh has Carroll's number. And soon every other NFL coach will be dreading to play Harbaugh and the Niners as much as Carroll wishes he could take the two most embarrassing defeats in Trojan history off his otherwise flawless record.
