To a casual fan maybe, but wouldn't the scouts look at a game like this even more intensely than a lousy stat padding game as this is closer to an NFL atmosphere.
I would like to think that scouts would be better than that, I really would, but sometimes I just don't know...guys who put together a great body of work over 4 years will fall potentially a hundred picks because they didn't work out that well leading up to the draft while guys who did next to nothing on the field will shoot up draft boards because "ZOMG 4.3 speedzzz!!"
So I am guessing Harbaugh's replacement can actually coach. I kind of passed him off last year as just riding Luck, but he seems legit. Glad to see Stanford get this win, I always root for them, love seeing academic schools actually put out good football teams.
