AMAKER OPENER TURNS INTO BLOOD BATH

The Tommy Amaker honeymoon didn't last very long.

If you're still shaking off your hangover, Stanford destroyed Harvard 111-56 last night in the Crimson's season opener.

The 5 Virtues went straight out the window as the statistics seem straight out of Procrastination Station:

- Trailed by 35 at halftime
- Allowed 65% shooting from the field
- Were outrebounded 50-19
- Stanford's 6th highest point total in school history

Always Mr. Positive, Amaker had this to say after the game:

"I thought the way we competed all the way to the end was a real positive."

Uh, whatever you say, coach. On a side note, after reading this T.A. feature by Jackie MacMullan of the Boston Globe, we almost feel sorry the guy: Coach K thinks this could be his last coaching job EVER. Yoinks!
