STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Any doubts David Shaw had about how his young Stanford team would respond to last week's stunning 17-13 loss at Washington ended 48 hours later.
While coaches held a meeting to discuss recruiting, the short run players go for two nights after every game took on a different tone. Word spread back to Shaw that players were particularly ``fired up, jacked up, excited about it and got after it.''
The real test of that resolve will come Saturday when No. 18 Stanford (3-1, 1-1 Pac-12) holds its homecoming game against Arizona (3-2, 0-2), a program remodeled under new coach Rich Rodriguez that is facing an equally critical tilt in its season after two straight losses.
