FAMILIAR FOOTPRINT

BYU's Taysom Hill is a quarterbacking sensation.

Just don't ask him to use his arm.

Hill led the Cougars to a 40-21 win over Texas on Saturday, rushing for 259 yards. But his season passing stats are another matter: 22 for 66 with two interceptions and a touchdown.

Which makes for perfect timing in one sense.

With Tebowmania finally dying down, isn't this the perfect time to find a new faith-based quarterback who can run but can't pass?
