Coach Jim Harbaugh inherited a one-win team when he arrived at Stanford. In four remarkable years, he transformed the Cardinal into a team that was one bad half at Oregon from playing for the national title. Stanford capped its first 12-win season with a 40-12 win over Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl. Shortly after that game, star quarterback Andrew Luck, pictured, surprisingly announced he was returning for his junior season. Harbaugh, however, cashed in on his success to take over the San Francisco 49ers.
