The Notre Dame spring game has come to a close, which puts the Irish one step closer to beginning the 2014 regular season. There wasn't a lot to takeaway from the game with both sides bringing a vanilla game plan to the table, but the Irish officially have a quarterback battle on their hands.

Everett Golson and and Malik Zaire looked pretty good and showed more positives than negatives. Zaire was better overall, but that may be expected considering Golson did miss all of last season due to suspension. Something tells me both are ready to compete for the job and a decision shouldn't be expected until a week or so before the season begins.

Running back Greg Bryant looked terrific, and corners Cole Luke and Elijah Shumate also made plays.

All in all, it was a smooth spring game for Notre Dame that didn't involve any injuries. So, you can say it was a success for the Irish.
