Don't think a tree can be scary? Wait till one smashes through your window and hijacks your kid.
That's all I've got when it comes to scary tree things. Enjoy this year's Halloween post, the Stanford edition.
The Exorcist: Playing Nov. 12 at a stadium near you. One-night special engagement only.
Silence of the Critics: It puts the wins on the scoreboard or else it gets the hose again.
Witchcraft: Offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton in the red zone: 47-of-47. What kind of sorcery is this?
Sunday the 13th: Could be a comedy. Could be a tear-jerker.
Nightmare on Galvez Street: An undefeated Stanford team falls 65-0 to Notre Dame in the regular season finale. I just got the chills ...
HALLOWEEN COSTUMES (all in good fun):
Coby Fleener, Levine Toilolo and Zach Ertz: Dusty Bottoms, Lucky Day and Ned Nederlander.
Andrew Luck (without beard): Too much?
David DeCastro: The Hulk (though you probably wouldn't catch him wearing green).
Terrence Stephens: Marcellus Wallace (no pictures or video links were appropriate, but use your imagination).
Ertz take 2: Anything with Channing Tatum.
David Shaw: The most interesting man in the world. "I don't always go for it on fourth down, but when I do, I prefer the fullback."
Jordan Williamson: Deep Blue. The math (almost) always adds up.
Shayne Skov: Steve Austin ... We can rebuild him. We have the technology... (get well soon, Shayne).
Chase Thomas: The Thing.
Jarek Lancaster: In honor of his ultimate pump-up movie -- Maximus. Are you not entertained?
