- The unconventional scoring system Stanford uses for its spring game might have been the only drama this year. The defense dominated again Saturday, winning 23-7 by the school's official count. Of course, the unit had been ahead 27-7 on the scoreboard and didn't receive points for another turnover, which even had coach David Shaw questioning the final tally. "I would like to have control of the scoreboard on the sidelines every game that we play," Shaw quipped. Regardless of what the scoreboard showed, the game summed up exactly what Stanford is right now: a work in progress.
Perhaps the most encouraging part of the spring for Stanford is fifth-year senior Kevin Hogan looks more like the quarterback who carried the Cardinal to three straight wins at the end of last season than the inconsistent player during their 5-5 start. He completed 13 of 18 passes for 187 yards and said he feels as good as ever. "I thought it was a great spring all together," Hogan said. "We moved the ball efficiently down the field. We were efficient in the red zone. Defense is going to make plays. But I thought overall offensively, we had a great spring." - AP Sports
