On Tuesday the latest ranking from the College Football Playoff Committee were released. While there was quite a bit of controversy surrounding Oregon's number 2 ranking. Not surprisingly there was no controversy over Stanford's ranking or lack thereof. It is no secret that the Stanford football team is having a tough year, but it is important to remember that outside of football Stanford is still dominating. Here is a quick roundup of just a few the areas that Stanford University is currently crushing it.
Stanford sophomore forward Jordan Morris has been called into camp by U.S. Men's National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, this time as part of the 25-man roster for the final matches of the 2014 campaign.
It could not have been a more successful weekend for the No. 10 Cardinal men's soccer team (12-2-3, 5-1-3 Pac-12), as they came away with six points from two vital Pac-12 home games.
No. 3 Stanford finished out regular season play with an impressive 17-1-2 record and 9-1-1 finish in the Pac-12, good enough to earn the Card second in the conference behind UCLA, but most importantly, it earned them a No. 1 seed in the 2014 NCAA Tournament.
Andi Sullivan's seamless transition from the Under-20 World Cup to Stanford has been rewarded with the honor of being selected as the Pac-12 Freshman/Newcomer of the Year for women's soccer.
The best season in school history will continue for No. 4 Stanford field hockey (18-2), which earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament, as announced on the NCAA selection show on Sunday.
Some six months removed from the 2014 NCAA Women's Water Polo Championship match, little has changed among the elite teams in women's college water polo, at least for one weekend. In the championship match of the first ever Collegiate Cup, pitting the top women's college water polo teams with two USA National Team squads, it was Stanford and UCLA meeting for all the marbles. Reprising their role as champion from this past spring, the Cardinal came through in the NCAA Championship rematch, once again downing the Bruins 9-7 in a back and forth match that witnessed a level of intensity not normally reserved for off-season action.
Finally, and this one might be the coolest, Stanford tops the list of The Daily Beast's 2014 College Rankings.
