What Utah shows as bland, Stanford holds as their own. The conservative block S holds strong.
Stanford loses for their lack of a mascot, but the Harvard of the West can pull that kind of joke on their conference brothers.
Stanford abandoned their Indian mascot well before any nationwide political mess prompted them to. Props for that.
Their blacks appear sleek, but Stanford utilizes academics well above uniform gimmicks for recruiting success, so don’t expect any drastic change from the Farm.
