If Riley Nelson remains the starting QB, BYU loses this week at BSU, next week to USU, and will drop games to Oregon State and Notre Dame. Ending with a 7-5 record. Riley has so much heart and grit, but very little skill. His downfield throws are terrible, his passes barely make it over the defensive lines shoulder pads. The Utah defense mentally and physically dominated him throughout the game. It was frankly sad to watch. The play-calling is limited to his abilities (which are passes no further than 15yds, and the option). Utah exposed the BYU offense and coaching staff. Perhaps the worst part is seeing Bronco week after week standing emotionless and expressionless on the sideline. Pathetic. If we can't find a way to get a wain against a beat up Utah team, with 3 different chances, something needs to change.

BYU better be ready. Boise State sounds like they are used to short weeks.

What's the big deal? Doman will have his 4 plays ready to go.

Any news coming this week on Falslev's status for the game after public outburst honor code violation?

BYU won't beat Boise State if Nelson comes with his pouty punk attitude he displayed in the Utah game. I thought he was supposed to be a tough guy, mentally and physically. But for the majority of the game, his body language screamed "Loser." I don't know if it was a shock to his system that the Ute fans would be screaming their heads off or what it was. But it was obvious he was pouting about something.

Nelson was frustrated by premature snaps, poor blocking, and countless illegal procedures.

@Black & Blue
I take it you didn't watch the 4th quarter where he had some brilliant passes, many while being hit and right on target. How about the 47yd strike on 4th and 12?
Nelson is no Jim McMahon but isn't as bad as many claim, and I still say he is the right guy for the job now. Hill will be a great qb but I just worry it will ruin him if you make him the starter right now.
