How is Stanford so good at trolling? I mean, yeah, they’re smart, but at this point you’d think they had some sort of troll program in their communications department, and, naturally, it’s at least top ten nationally. I’m positive some whiz kid in Stanford’s Bayless School of Trolling already received a cool 700k from venture capitalists to write a code that will re-anonymize YouTube comments. First we had the Stanford student who made one of the all time great college football signs, and now we have the Stanford football team itself getting in on the fun during the press conference after last night’s win over Pac-12 rival and former national title contender Oregon.

Well played. You really showed those Nike jocks from up north, you studious, awkward Stanford nerds. Well, except that the nerds were ranked #5 in the BCS, and turned out to be bigger and stronger than the jocks, which is why they beat them slowly and mercilessly with a run game that would make anyone longing for the “good ole days” of football run out and buy Viagra just so they could successfully cream their pants about it.
No matter what the Stanford football team actually is, the glasses were a nice touch. Troll on Stanford, because this rivalry is getting pretty good.
