Football preview podcast: Most pressing questions

Aug. 18, 2016, 11:22 p.m.

With two weeks to go until Stanford football officially kicks off its 2016-17 campaign with its Sept. 2 opener against Kansas State, the KZSU/Daily football crew got back together after a long offseason and talked about the biggest questions that this Stanford team needs to answer in order to be successful this season.

Does it even matter who plays quarterback for the Cardinal? Can Christian McCaffrey emulate his legendary 2015 campaign? Are the offensive and defensive lines in good shape?

Join KZSU play-by-play announcer Nicky Sullivan, color commentator Michael Peterson and Daily football analysts Vihan Lakshman and Do-Hyoung Park for all that and more in the first episode of our season’s podcast series.
