BYU fans ignore or just aren't informed enough to know just how many of their starters began as 'walk ons'. And how many scholarship athletes end up busts?
Also, comments about a high school qb playing qb for college demonstrate even more ignorance by fans. You realize that nearly all your linebackers, DBs, running backs and some of your tight ends were starting high school quarterbacks? USU isn't recruiting a qb, they are recruiting speed and athleticism-just like anyone else.

BYU fans continually surprise me with how little they actually know about their own team.


@pleblian - apparently the moderators are either very slow to post, or are much more concerned about your feelings than us ignorant BYU fans. I'll try to tone it down, although I think you would have lived through my original comments.

BYU fans, and their spectrum of knowledge, are no different than fans of any school across the country. To say otherwise displays a provincialism that reflects a knee-jerk hatred of BYU.

I checked out the walk-on status of BYU starters. Out of a total of 26 different starters for the Poinsettia Bowl (11 offense, 11 defense, 4 special teams), a grand total of.....wait for it..... 1 walk-on - Ezekial Ansah!

BYU detractors continually surprise me with how little they actually know about the BYU football team, when they claim to know so much.
