why play

Hill should not have been the QB in the first place. True freshman QB's should be developed, learn the offense (whatever that is) and mature to the level D1 schools play. Just like Utah, coaches keep throwing GOOD,young QB's to the wolves hoping they will save the day. Attempting to impress coaches, fans, team and world, they try to do too much and make stupid mistakes which end careers. That's why you have guys waiting in the wings for their time, IE Lark! He's been there 5 years, knows the whole playbook and has gone through the development process. Had Heaps been handled properly, now would have been a great time for him to takeover. Hill is much too valuable to BYU down the road than in this year of mediocrity. Lark can turn the ball over to Utah as good as Riley, can lose to Boise and beat-up on bad teams good as Riley and Hill and take the pounding from USU as good as Hill. What Hill has learned from his experience this year- D1 schools hit hard and you can't run all over everyone like in HS.
