I will take accuracy, ability to lead an offense and read a defense. Mangum is big enough to see and pass over the lineman and his release is fine.

I kind of like the sound of perfect.

Congrats to both players on their performance in the camp. Also, congrats to Mangum for hsi CO-MVP honors with two other QB's. However, before either school starts to gloat, say their recruit is better than the other, let's just wait until they play their first games in a college uniform. They are still high school QB's, and dont need to read all of the crap that comes out of each of the schools trolls mouths. Let them finish their senior season, graduate, then go on a mission, or head to spring camp, then we can watch them play, and say who is better. Hopefully they each have a great senior year, and make us all proud. GO UTES!

Tanner was MVP and Wilson missed the cut. Enough said!

As a Ute fan I'm excited. Wilson will be coming to the U just in time to compete with Tyler Shreve to back up Jordan Wynn his senior season setting up a good situation for Utah when Wynn graduates. He's learned what he needs to work on at this camp and now has his senior season to make improvements. Still, being one of the top 24 QB's in the country isn't shabby.

Yeah what a worthless QB Travis Wilson is going to turn out to be. I mean being invited to the Elite 11 football camp and not making the cut to the last 11 and all he managed to win was the best release award. How embarrassing.

It will be interesting to see how Mangum does in 4 or 5 years. He won't even be in a BYU uniform for 3 years and then will likely need at least a year to get back into shape and regain his form, accuracy and timing. The added maturity will be an asset he will need to compete with whomever else is there at the time. Hopefully the press will remind us of his credentials when he gets back, because I know I won't remember.

You should not be embarrassed by your qbs. Things will be just fine, little brother. And remember, you still have Lord Norm!

chicagoborn,

Explain to me how it is embarrassing to be one of the top 24 high school QB's in the country? How many high schools are there? This is one Ute fan whose not worried.

Real Bass,

Yup! Winning the MVP is the end all, be all for who will be the best QB out of the two. I sure hope that is not the case for you. Heaps won the MVP, and we have seen how that has worked out so far against good competition. Granted he is still young, and will most likely become a good QB in the future, but PLEASE little troll, lets wait to pass judgement on these kids until they have actually played a game or two on the collegiate level. I know that you love to down grade everything that is UTAH, & make bYu look like the best thing since sliced bread, but you might want to leave your mothers basement once in awhile and go check out the real world outside of Provostan. You might learn a thing or two.

Mormon Ute, I think you misunderstood chicagoborn, I think its sarcasm, you are both making the same point. I am really looking forward to seeing how Wilson does as a Ute, this kid is looking like the real deal.
Go Utes!

Looks like BYU is returning to Quarterback U.

One the best QB coaches in the country is attracting some the best QB talent in the nation.

Great talent this year and an incredible pipeline = happy CougFaninTX. There is no doubt that Taysom and Tanner will attract a lot more talent to follow them.

"Hopefully the press will remind us of his credentials when he gets back, because I know I won't remember."

Yeah, yeah, dissing the MVP and saying you won't remember his credentials.

Did your mommy ever catch you lying because you're really bad at it.

Jealous much?

Arguing with a Ute is like wrestling with a Pig. Both everyone gets dirty, but the pig loves it! Obviously Ute fans have nothing better to do than harass BYU fans. Otherwise they wouldn't spend their time on BYU articles.

It is nice to see Utah get a decent quarterback talent. I wish him, Travis Wilson, well. I hope that BYU North will train him better than Vince Young.

Tanner Mangum is just another quarterback in the long line. Both John Beck and Max Hall managed a mission and became good college quarterbacks. He will do just fine. And by 2017 BYU will have a couple more Elite 11 quarterbacks.

For all Cougar fans here who think the Ute posters are just trying to rain on the BYU/Mangum parade...you're all hypersensitive!
I've yet to read more than maybe one post from a Ute fan I honestly don't agree with. While Mangum must look awesome right now, he's 3 or more years from college. Ute fans here aren't saying the guy sucks or that Wilson is better. We're simply saying wait and see before giving him the Heisman trophy...need I remind you of Ben Olson?
That being said, nothing wrong with being stoked about your recruit and proud that he's looking good. While I'd have loved to see Wilson with the MVP, I can't say I care much. In fact, I honestly don't mind seeing a young guy get invited to that camp and come out of it knowing he's not the best and needs to keep working. I also love his size for Chow's offense and can again honestly say I'm glad he's our guy.
Good luck to both and let's know a lot can change from now 'til they take a college snap...if they do. Good luck to both recruits.

Nice job Tanner. Great work in the elite 11 camp. Big time honor to be name co-MVP!!! Great to have you coming to BYU!

That is going to be so fun watching these two go at each other and lead their respective teams. Sounds like some great contests well into the future. I hope I can wait four years to see it. I also hope Tanner doesn't pull a Ben Olsen. But he sounds pretty solid.

Man, it's remarkable how predictable you are buddy. Absolutely no class whatsoever. Glad you're a Y fan.

So clueless teddy.

This is a Utah AND BYU article.

And if you'll take the time to check, you'll see that it's the Y fans who first started the mud slinging on this story.

Next time, research before you write pal.

Best quote from article: "For the second straight day Tanner Mangum won the accuracy competition at the Elite 11"

This is a message board. All the ute fans asking for us not to comment....HELLO!!! This is an online message board!! If you don't want to read or comment, then get off!!!

BYU's recruit was MVP, Utah's was not. BYU wins this battle.

BYU > Utah.

Go Cougars!!
