Stanford's Hail Mary

Jim Harbaugh got a lot of looks, but no takers. That will change Tuesday. Harbaugh, whose name had been connected with openings at Iowa State, North Texas and Tulane, will be announced as Stanford's coach. It's quite a step up in competition for Harbaugh, who has been a big winner the past three seasons at Division I-AA San Diego. Harbaugh might have been a factor in the opening last season at San Diego State had he not been arrested for driving under the influence. ... Cardinal Athletic Director Bob Bowlsby is already being criticized for choosing Harbaugh. Jon Wilner of the Mercury News wrote on his blog, "For a program in the gutter, this is a huge gamble."
