On stage ... Stanford

PASADENA, Calif. -- Some quick hits from media day.

  • Coach Jim Harbaugh with fullback/linebacker Owen Marecic. Stanford was picked fourth in the media poll after finishing tied for second in 2009.

  • Harbaugh said Marecic will start at fullback and linebacker for the Cardinal. "He is the perfect football player," Harbaugh said. "The idea is to get him on the field as much as we can."

  • On replacing Toby Gerhart: "It might be two. It might be three."

  • Marecic on trying to learn two positions: "There's plenty of time in practice to get time on both sides of the ball."

  • Harbaugh on staying at Stanford: "If I were asked if I'd be coach at Stanford for life: I don't know."

  • Harbaugh: "We despise the word 'sustaining' and we despise the word 'satisfaction.'
