Stanford vs. Arizona: Josh Nunes remains starter

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

David Shaw is sticking with his man as Josh Nunes will remain the starting QB for the Cardinal.

Despite an anemic showing on offense on Thursday against the Washington Huskies, head coach David Shaw and his Stanford Cardinal are sticking with Josh Nunes as their starting quarterback, according to a report from Sports Illustrated.

Shaw talked about keeping Nunes as the quarterback after the Card's 17-13 loss on Thursday, and he was not too pleased about having to answer such questions.

"Josh is the starting quarterback,'' Shaw said. "He played well the first game. He played much better the second game. He played an OK half against USC, then an outstanding half against USC and is coming off a bad game. We're not changing quarterbacks. That doesn't make any sense to me. We wanted to bronze his arm and his legs after USC, and then now I have to answer a hundred questions about how come we're not changing quarterbacks. It's asinine.''

Having to fill the shoes left behind by Andrew Luck would be a daunting task for any quarterback. But going 65 for 125 (52 percent) for 785 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions in four games is going to cause some concern in the Pac-12. Hopefully Nunes can turn it around against Arizona this weekend from Palo Alto.
