Stanford stories are back and there is quite a bit going on around the Farm. Starting out are several stories surrounding Kevin Hogan and his NFL Draft preparations. Should Kevin Hogan be drafted higher than he is projected? Sports Illustrated explored that question. According to Buffalo Rumblings the General Manager and Director of College Scouting for the Buffalo Bills came to the Farm to watch Kevin Hogan's workout on Pro Day.  According to Scout, however, NFL scouts allegedly think Hogan has almost nothing to offer beyond his intelligence.

In Stanford football recruiting news, one of the best quarterbacks in the country, Davis Mills announced his firm commitment to Stanford, but he still took an unofficial visit to Alabama and Nick Saban sent him an offer.

The Stanford football team finally received their Rose Bowl Rings after trouncing the Iowa Hawkeyes. Looking ahead to the 2016 football season the defensive line lost several pieces including the defensive line coach and this unit could be the biggest question mark in 2016 according to Get More Sports.  The Stanford offense has to replace several pieces as well including quarterback, linemen and receiving targets and the Orlando Sentinel wonders if Christian McCaffrey is enough to carry the team while the new faces get up to speed. Even with these question marks Pacific Takes examines if Stanford is becoming the Duke basketball of college football?

Switching over to Stanford alums in the NFL, Jim Dray has a new home, as does Coby Fleener. In an interesting piece, The sporting news considers whether Andrew Luck should switch teams when his contract is up with the Colts. Another notable Stanford football alum, Richard Sherman had some words about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in a recent interview with ESPN.

Moving on to Stanford hoops, the men's basketball team is looking for a new coach and Forbes suggests that it may be the best opportunity in college basketball this year. On the women's side, Stanford women's basketball alum Jennifer Azzi now coaches USF and took on her former Coach and School.  It went well for the Cardinal and now the Women's basketball team is on to the second round.
