Stanford Loses to Purple Color Eaters

This rabid Stanford fan found that time machines are alive and well
You don’t need a movie set or a Jules Verne to be transported back to the Indians’ football death knell
A battle of two teams from schools of this nation’s academic prime
With one changing its name and in years past winning football games big time
Not today with an offense that had only one cylinder to fire
Smothered by a defense that did not tire
Self inflicted wounds of too many passes to have been dropped
Led by a senior quarterback who today completely flopped
A defense that could not make the needed tackles or big time stops
Maybe Northwestern was pissed because the NLRB took away its football union shop
Stanford in the Red Zone driving for a TD only for an interception to any hope of victory stop
Too bad as onside kicks are a total thrill
The sounds of the time machine in the future are the Trojans licking their chops anticipating a Cardinal kill
