Stanford streak in jeopardy

07:41 AM ET 02.25 | In Palo Alto, David Shaw will have to answer who is ready to step in at running back and fill the shoes of Tyler Gaffney and Anthony Wilkerson, who combined for 2,062 rushing yards in 2013. Coordinator Mike Bloomgren's offense returns Barry J. Sanders, Remound Wright and Ricky Seale, and the Cardinal are used to employing multiple backs. The team also will eventually welcome freshmen Christian McCaffrey and Isaiah Brandt-Sims. Sanders is a weapon as a pass-catcher out of the backfield, while neither Wright nor Seale are traditional Cardinal power backs. No matter who gets the most carries, the Cardinal have had a 1,000-yard rusher for six consecutive seasons. That streak could be in danger, though, because the three top backs have similar skill sets, so it will be interesting if a true No. 1 emerges.

Best in the PAC 12 right now for sure. Mike Riley #2. Could be challenged though by Chris Petersen in a couple of years.

Could be. If he adjusts Stanford's game to his present personnel instead of trying to continue the same game plan that worked for them with big backs, and is successful then he deserves the "best coach" title.
