I can promise that Utah State is wishing for Riley Nelson. At home without dealing with crowd noise BYU will be more effective from the shotgun. With his size, strength, speed and much stronger arm Hill will be able to stretch the field and make some 30 40 yard runs. He looked comfortable throwing on the run. Taysom just needs to get 30 passes under his belt. Taysom's first touchdown pass in the first game was telling because the safe bet might have been to run it in but he made the confident pass for the score.
I love Utah State and root for them every week even against my Broncos but my hope is that BYU will quit settling for wins and dare to be great like decades ago. Hill is BYU's best hope of being a meaningful team and competing with the likes of Notre Dame in a couple weeks. This game is a litmus test for BYU and a harbinger of continual mediocrity or striding to be a force in college football.
