Stanford is just a week removed from downing Notre Dame in South Bend.

The Cardinal are 2-5 on the year, sure, but it still had a to be a bit of a letdown to show up to the stadium and see well under 5,000 in attendance for a home matchup against Arizona State.

This is Stanford’s kickoff crowd.

We’ve seen similar things from UCLA and other California schools this season. Whether it’s just a combination of fans not caring, bad product on the field or extreme heat, this is not a good look for the program on the recruiting trail.

For what it’s worth, the Cardinal are losing to Arizona State 14-6 halfway through the 3rd quarter.
