Spring is over and Stanford is still waiting for its next quarterback to blossom.
Brett Nottingham and Josh Nunes did little to separate themselves in Stanford's spring game Saturday, splitting time in the Cardinal's 37-29 loss to the White in a game the defense dominated.
Stanford coach David Shaw flipped the format to an unconventional offense (Cardinal) vs. defense (White) game to give his quarterbacks a chance to shine. The defense received points for turnovers and stops depending on where each occurred on the field.
All eyes at cozy Kezar Stadium in San Francisco's famous Golden Gate Park zoomed into the quarterbacks fighting to replace Andrew Luck, the presumed No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft who was roaming the sidelines. Neither did much to show they're the clear starter.

Stanford offers free admission to its 2012 spring game, kicking off at 2 p.m. Saturday at San Francisco’s Kezar Stadium.
