David Shaw Takes Shot At "Hype"-Based Programs, Tweets Out Stanford "Facts"

Stanford head coach David Shaw wants to make sure that recruits understand the difference between a program that talks the talk and a program that walks the walk. Shaw, apparently taking a shot at college football teams that use "hype" to recruit, tweeted out a number of facts that shows how successful the Cardinal has been both on and off the field the past few seasons.

Shaw's facts include back-to-back Pac-12 titles, four straight BCS bowl game appearances, the most NFL Draft picks this past season, the most wins vs. FBS teams since 2010 and a 100% graduation rate. 

You can make your own decision as to whether it's a shot at Oregon.
