Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 20-of-28 passing for 216 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 35-0 win against Army.
The 15th-ranked Cardinal didn't get much resistance in this one, as the Black Knights elected to throw the ball only five times despite the fact that they trailed essentially the entire way. Because of the opponent, it's impossible to evaluate Hogan's performance. Stanford has a bye week on deck. They'll use that to prepare for a road date in Washington. Sep 14 - 12:17 AM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 22-for-30 for 285 yards in Saturday's 13-10 loss to USC.

Hogan avoided mistakes until the very end, when he got drilled from behind by J.R. Tavai and fumbled on the USC 25 with mere seconds left. The Trojans kneeled on the next play and the game was over. Because of the offensive system Hogan plays in -- one that puts a premium on running the ball and avoiding mistakes -- it's impossible to judge him based on stats. He's a good prospect, however, one whom CBS Sports' Rob Rang compared to Philip Rivers prior to the season.
Sep 6 - 6:54 PM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan compares to Philip Rivers in his ability to overcome a quirky delivery with his "instincts, accuracy and velocity," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Rang is as high on Hogan as anyone, ranking him as the No. 10 overall prospect heading into the season. "Hogan has good accuracy to all levels with especially impressive touch on deep passes when he has the room to step into his throw," he wrote. "Hogan has been well protected by the elite talent blocking in front of him but when pressure does force him off his spot, he is willing to step up in the pocket, exhibiting poise, toughness and quick decision-making to either throw or run. Like Luck before him, Hogan is faster (and stronger) than he looks, making him a formidable threat on the run. Stanford's scheme calls for lots of play-action, boots and throwing on the move and deep shots -- staples of a pro-style offense that suit Hogan's athleticism and strong arm well." Stanford's conservative, run-based offensive scheme has limited Hogan to 3,726 yards and 29 touchdowns against 13 interceptions in 20 career starts, but he should be in line for more in 2014.

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan "has a long windup on his release and needs to clean up some things mechanically," according to ESPN's Mel Kiper.

The venerable analyst graded Hogan tied for fifth in his rankings of underclassmen quarterbacks, writing that the Cardinal star "should take a step forward this season with another good O-line and several outstanding weapons in the passing game." Kiper isn't as high on Hogan as some -- CBS' Rob Rang ranks him as the No. 10 overall prospect -- but perceives the upside nonetheless. "[Hogan is] a very good athlete and should continue to improve," Kiper wrote.
Jun 9 - 10:27 PM

CBS Sports' Rob Rang ranks Stanford redshirt junior-to-be QB Kevin Hogan as the No. 10 overall prospect on his first big board.

Hogan "is a savvy and refined passer with a good arm and underrated athleticism," Rang writes. "He's not the second coming of Andrew Luck but has the tools to intrigue as a future franchise quarterback." Hogan was mainly used as a game manager, which is not an insult, that took vertical shots off of play action passes.

Stanford coach David Shaw envisions Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan as a "new-school quarterback with the versatility to effectively run read-option or function as a traditional pocket passer."

"Those skills make him an intriguing prospect for teams looking for an athletic playmaker to direct an offense at the next level,"'s Bucky Brooks wrote. Hogan is coming off an uneven campaign in which he logged eight games with fewer than 200 passing yards. "He also needs to display better big-game moxie after failing to play well in each of the Cardinal's three losses (Utah, USC and Michigan State) a season ago," Brooks wrote. "If Hogan can make significant steps in each of those aforementioned areas, he is an ideal candidate to make a rise up the charts when scouts dig into his game this fall."
May 21 - 9:13 PM

Stanford redshirt sophomore QB Kevin Hogan completed 7-of-13 attempts for 103 yards in Thursday's 26-20 upset victory over Oregon.

He didn't throw a touchdown or an interception. Hogan added 57 rushing yards and a touchdown. The Cardinal controlled this game from the outset and staked themselves to a 26-0 fourth quarter lead. Hogan wasn't called on to pass much, so he spent most of the upset victory handing the ball off.

Stanford coach David Shaw strongly denied Washington coach Steve Sarkisian's claims that Cardinal players faked injuries to slow the Huskies' offensive tempo during Saturday's game.

Shaw is one of the hottest coaching prospects in college football, and he handles controversy as decisively as he handles his team. He waited 48 hours to respond to Sarkisian's claim, and then went Andre the Giant on Washington's coach. "We don't fake injuries. We never have and never will," Shaw said. "I don't care what Steve Sarkisian thinks he saw." Shaw then made like a master rhetorician and re-framed the argument to make it appear as though Sarkiasian was a blithering hypocrite, pointing out that Washington employs the only Pac-12 coach (Tosh Lupoi) who was has been charged with ordering players to fake injuries. Sarkiasian, backed into a corner, said this: "No comment. I'm done with the subject." This battle of wits -- much like Saturday's game -- was won by Shaw and company.

Stanford head coach David Shaw reaffirmed his loyalty to the school amid questions if he will jump to the NFL if offered a coaching job.

"I absolutely love it here," Shaw said. "My family loves it here. My wife is an East Coast woman who’s been transplanted here to Palo Alto, California and never wants to leave. So I plan on being here for a very long time." Shaw will certainly be a hot name among NFL circles and has experience as an assistant coach with the Ravens, but we believe him regarding his love for Stanford.

Stanford redshirt sophomore QB Kevin Hogan completed 11 of 18 attempts for 188 yards, three touchdowns, and an interceptions in a 34-20 win over Army.

It wasn't Hogan's best performance, but he gets the job done. Hogan is often forgotten among west coast quarterbacks like Marcus Mariota and Brett Hundley, but Hogan could go into next season as one of the top passers in the country.
Sat, Sep 14, 2013 04:29:00 PM's Bucky Brooks ranks Stanford redshirt sophomore Kevin Hogan at No. 15 among college football's top QBs.

Brooks notes this ranking is a combination of college production and NFL projection, so it might hurt Hogan that only has one game under his belt this season. "David Shaw has a budding superstar on his hands with Hogan emerging as a difference maker at quarterback," Brooks writes. Hogan "can pick apart opponents as a precise passer, while also tormenting foes with his underrated athleticism and running skills. As a result, he is nearly indefensible in the Cardinal's multi-faceted offense..." We are huge fans of fellow sophomore Marcus Mariota and others prefer UCLA's Brett Hundley, but don't be surprised if Hogan's name emerges as one of the top young passers on the West Coast.

When asked if he likes it when Stanford is compared to SEC football programs, head coach David Shaw said "I don't necessarily take that as a compliment."

"I’d rather have people say we’re old school," Shaw elaborated. "We play the style of football I grew up with. It’s not because that’s the way they play at Alabama or LSU. That means nothing to us." Shaw has helped build a very impressive program with the limited talent pool that is eligible to compete at Stanford. NFL teams will, and likely already have, come calling, but we expect Shaw to remain in the Pac-12 for quite a while.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang listed redshirt sophomore QB Kevin Hogan as Stanford's No. 4 prospect.

"Should Hogan make the strides in his first full season under center that he made in five games (all Stanford victories) as a redshirt freshman last year and he'll deserve top-billing rather than being listed this low among Cardinal prospects," Rang added. The draft analyst went on to cite Hogan's size, mobility and arm talent as reasons to be optimistic for the redshirt sophomore's development. The Cardinal passer would be wise to improve on his downfield placement, however.

CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman talked to one NFL personnel man who believes Stanford junior QB Kevin Hogan will be a future first-round pick.

That evaluator notes Hogan has "great pocket awareness, anticipation and size. Good feet." Hogan took over for Josh Nunes last year and did open up the Stanford offense a bit more. The Cardinal lost their leading rusher in Stepfan Taylor but continue to deploy solid offensive line talent, which will only help Hogan's progression.

Stanford head coach David Shaw announced that redshirt freshman Kevin Hogan will take over the starting QB spot in place of senior Josh Nunes.

Nunes has started every game this season, but there had been word in recent weeks that a change could be coming. In a blowout against Colorado, Hogan received far more passing attempts than Nunes. It is a tough first draw for Hogan, but a steady ground game with Stepfan Taylor will help.
