Spartans: Did you not get the memo? The one about Stanford not being good anymore? On Saturday, San Jose State was embarrassed to the tune of 37-0 by the Cardinal, who won their first game at the new Stanford Stadium -- which opened in September of 2006 -- and posted their first shutout in 11 years. Afterwards Spartans coach Dick Tomey gave a rather broad explanation of his team's failures, telling the Spartan Daily, "We were badly outcoached and badly outplayed."

For the previous two seasons, the Huskies have followed a strange formula: dig themselves an 0-2 hole, then manage to turn things around and win seven of their next 10 games. In 2005 NIU made it to the MAC title game; in 2006 they reached the Poinsettia Bowl. So it was not surprising that Joe Novak's team also started 2007 by losing its first two games. What was shocking was that the Huskies went out in Week 3 and fell to what was one of the nation's five worst teams, Eastern Michigan, by a score of 21-19. "I still believe in this team," Novak told the Chicago Tribune. "I told them that there will be no pouting or head-hanging." Yet another bottom-20 squad, Idaho, awaits on Saturday.
