Chuck Culpepper of The Washington Post chronicled the career of BYU starting signal caller Taysom Hill.
Culpepper writes, "He’s married and up to manifold projects in graduate school and still taking snaps for Brigham Young even though he once occupied the 2009 recruiting rankings with such names as Brock Osweiler (228 NFL completions, two franchises, one Super Bowl ring), Derek Carr (756 NFL completions in 1,255 attempts), A.J. McCarron (one important NFL win) and Zach Mettenberger (208 for 345 in his NFL career)."
Culpepper also quotes Hill talking about those NFL players, "My path is different and, to be honest and frank, I don’t get caught up in that stuff. This is the path I chose. I’m happy with where I am. They had a different path and mine was an extremely unique college career."
Gordon Hayward better than Klay Thompson?
Andrew Bailey of Today's Fastbreak took a look at two of the best wings in the NBA, Gordon Hayward and Klay Thompson, while asking the question, "But if you had to pick just one for the 2016-17 season, who would it be?"
He then breaks down every aspect of each player's game to decide who he would take.
When making the defensive comparison, Bailey writes, "As was the case on the post-ups, reputation would suggest Thompson is the better defender. But the numbers say otherwise."
Hayward has the edge in Defensive Box Plus-Minus (DBPM), Defensive Win Shares (and his Win Shares come from a much smaller win total), steal percentage and Defensive Real Plus-Minus."
After looking at their games as a whole, Bailey comes to the conclusion that Hayward is his pick, saying, "Even if you want to weigh scoring or shooting more heavily (which may be fair), Hayward simply does too much else all over the floor to be considered the inferior player."
