too bad its not Heaps....I would like to see why the Coaches have stuck with
Jake given he is one of the worst QB's in the country......
Sometimes having one's performance compared to one's potential is the most
discouraging experience of one's life. Had Heaps come in with no previous hype,
nobody would be calling him one of the worst QBs in the country because on a
rational objective he is not one of the worst. Right now his performance is
mediocre, but there are worse quarterbacks. People are either hugely
disappointed or filled with Schadenfreude (depending on whether they love or
hate BYU) because he came in as an Elite 11 top-rated high school QB in the
country with his own press conference. People expected that he would never miss
a throw and walk on water, too. Pendleton, on the other hand, is
truly a tragic situation. On a skills and playmaking level, his has NFL
possibilities. The sad part is that he can't showcase them. It's interesting
that someone like Pendleton who just quietly does his job and puts his heart and
soul into the game gains universal respect - even among those that hate the team
he plays for. Meanwhile, Heaps is disliked even by Cougar fans because of
unfounded expectations. It seems like confidence is one thing,
I coached against Pendleton (Alta vs. Bingham) in little league and nothing has
changed since then. He's a fierce competitor with cagy instincts. He made big
plays back then and having him on the sideline instead of on the field is truly
detrimental to BYU. As much as I'm against Bingham and BYU, I'd still like to
see this guy play. Talent and skill like his has to be admired - but I still
hope they lose. Go Utes!!!
Who else would byu play w/o Heaps? Rudy? If Pendleton isn't limping around
today, my guess is he's playing! No way the "Capt." holds back in
31-16 last year for USU. Hmmm. Sounds about the same score for this years game.
BYU is the bottom of the big three for the state of Utah this year no question.
How can JP say he is not injury prone? When Bronco says "He's had about
every injury you can have..." I think that means you are injury prone.too bad for BYU that Heaps isn't injury prone also. Riley Nelson and
his cut-off jersey would probably play well against his old team.
Geez ..i'm gonna say this as nice as possible...BYu you guys need a QB!
JP blew up in the weight room between his sophmore and junior year. Guys who get
too strong too fast always have joint problems.
