Because Stanford's cardinal IS a type of tree.

This doesn't make any sense.

Stanford's tree logo is from the school seal and from the seal of the city. The tree is literally El Palo Alto. http://www.gostanford.com/ViewArticle.dbml?ATCLID=208445366

"Cardinal" is strictly from the school color, not the tree.

Common knowledge. And watching college football for 20+ years

Haha.

Exactly.

"Cardinal" has nothing to do with the tree, it strictly refers to the school color and the tree comes from the school seal.

Where do you live that "Cardinal" being a type of tree is common knowledge? I find it hard to believe that you've heard that story more than once from various educated persons. And I really hope you didn't hear TV commentators make this claim multiple times over the 20+ years you've been watching football because it makes zero sense and is completely wrong.

you could add 2016 Rose Bowl to the shirt and it would be perfect for a Hawkeyes fan (yes, I am one and that game made me drink a few.)
