You can never have too many QB's. The more competition at that position;
BYU needs a lot of QBs with all the injuries. Hill shouldn't be named as
the starter until he is completely recovered.
Great to see that anything BYU is of such interest to the self-proclaimed
fanatics of other programs that they continue to support the DNews by reading
and commenting on BYU articles. Apparently it's a reflection of the
unemployment situation in this country.Great comment wahului. May all the players stay healthy and happy, happy, happy!
I watched Stewart for two years at Snow. He delivered virtually every week. He
was impressive in the Carrier Dome Bowl beating the #3 JUCO team. He works hard.
He's a born leader. He has an arm and he's accurate. His only problem
is he's at the WHY and not at the U of U. I wish him the best until the WHY
plays UTAH. GO UTES!Joel VO
Andrew:Everybody in Utah??Please note that this is an
article about BYU and one of it's qb's, a new transfer from another
school. The vast bulk of commentors on this blog are anti-BYU nincompoops who
are clueless on their smartest days. Their fixations are clearly displayed in
Re: all the U supporters. Thanks for visiting our site! Obviously
nothing going on in Ute football right now? Are the Utes still playing
Does everyone in Utah have nothing better to do than throw out baseless
predictions about players/teams we haven't seen play yet, and seasons that
have yet to be played? The BYU/Utah rivalry is a lot more infantile
and frivolous than I had thought...and this comes from someone who grew up
around the UNC/Duke rivalry...
I have confyidence in the selection of the starting qb and backups by the
coaching staff.My hope is that they use the no huddle offense and some of
the short passes (5-10 yds)that LaVell used when he was coaching. Another play
that requires arm strength is when the qb rolls to his left and thows a pass to
a receiver along the opposite sideline.That play would really work well
with a running qb.
So Munns has officially been put out to pasture then?
Y fans better be very concerned about who the backup quarterback is. With
Taysom Hill getting confused about who is the running back and who is the
quarterback, it would be a VERY lucky season if he didn't get hurt and miss
at least a game, possibly more. Unless Anae is protecting his quarterback more
and Hill doesn't run at every chance he gets, BYU will be playing the
backup at some point. It's like Utah was when Wynn was at the helm...you
just knew the backup would be starting at some point.
That is crazy he graduated highschool in 2008? I don't think of the age
concerns that other coaches have until dates are actually posted. Either way,
good luck.GO UTES!!
Here's how Stewart will fit into BYU's plans:1. He'll be
the backup QB for the first month of 2013. When the team gets drilled as they
play the tough part of the schedule, starting QB Hill will be benched and
Stewart will become the new starter.2. Stewart will rack up huge numbers
for the rest of 2013 while BYU feasts on WAC nobodies and qualifies for a
meaningless bowl game. BYU coaches/fans will proclaim Stewart to be the next
Steve Young.3. Following the season, Taysom Hill will transfer.4. In
spring 2014, Bronco will name Stewart as the starter.5. Repeat the above
cycle in 2014, 2015, 2016, etc.
CougfanWhy not keep going? Why stop with Kafentzis? Will he start in
2020? Good grief.My question is.... Which years will be National
Championship years? lol
I'm so excited to read the usual sarcasm of Mildred, Ernest T Bass, and now
adding RBN.It's actually interesting to learn the histories of
the various qb's on the depth chart, and how they got to where they are now
on the Cougar roster. It also makes it easier to identify and relate with their
various situations, and to pull for the different guys to succeed. There
is no question there is a lot of talent and potential on this offense.
Here's hoping the Cougar brain trust is able to make the most of it, and on
a consistent basis. If so, and they can match the offense quality to the proven
defense quality, this will be a very fun and successful year. Not the least of
which will be the start of a succession of ongoing defeats against the Red team
rivalry, assuming U dares play us again after what will be happening to them
this fall. Perhaps they'll decide to stick with their switch to Michigan.
It undoubtedly will be easier for the locals to accept defeat to them.
He probably "fits into BYU's plans" like this: He will play only
if all of the quarterbacks ahead of him on the depth chart throw like Riley
Nelson or are hurt. It's not rocket science.
Folks are right about a Spring game and a few scrimmages not being an accurate
barometer of talent. However, having watched the Spring game and other
scrimmages I can honestly say that all the QBs looked better than a certain RN.
Not to belabor the past seasons with RN but at least these guys could all throw
long and run. Stewart looked very athletic to me and seemed to be a leader when
he was on the field. I think things will bode well for future seasons with this
group of guys.
I always enjoy hearing how a third or fourth stringer played as a freshman in
So excited to see another dominating offense every year.
Go Big Blue!!!Bountiful, UT"I hope it works out as well as
the (last) qb transfer to the y."Much more easily understood. I
think the last qb transfer to the Y beat big blue, didn't he? Snatched
victory from the jaws of defeat? Am I thinking of the same guy?
This QB played for a high-powered offense, scoring 30-66 every game last year.
In their only loss, they gained 440 yards and 30 points and turnovers killed
them in that one. With BYU installing a fast-paced, high-powered offense, this
guy seems like the perfect fit. I'm so happy he came to BYU. They need an
experienced QB, not just guys that played well in HS. Who knows, he could be the
lift at QB BYU so desperately needs.
Christian would be higher on my list then a freshman out of high school. Yet,
they wouldn't bat an eye starting a freshman, over a JUCO walk on, who has
college experience. How is this even a conversation?
Allow me to be the voice of reason here and point out that we know next to
nothing about how these QB's will pan out, nor how potent the offense will
be. Hill can run and has an arm. We don't know about his accuracy or
ability to make good reads. The others? Well, they were really good in high
school. It feels like it should be a solid bunch, but then who doesn't look
good in Spring ball?Let's just shelve the predictions of top
five this or that until September.
I meant to say as well as the last qb transfer to the y. (ie Riley)
As a fellow THS alum and former Timpanogos Timberwolf football player, way to go
Christian! Not many of us make it to the next level. If I'm not mistaken
Paul Kruger is the only former THS Timberwolf in the NFL right now! It would be
awesome to see you make it onto the field for BYU football during your career.
As Coach McKinney used to say, it's a great day to be a T-Wolf!Go T-Wolves, and most of all Go Cougs!!!
Go Big Blue!!! Bountiful, UTThat was not a very coherent
thought. Wanna try that again?
I hope it works out as well as the qb transfer to the y.
I'm a little surprised there was no mention of Munns in this article. I
wish Stewart had a red shirt year available to use. I'm betting the 1/2
QBs will be as follows:2013 - Hill / Olsen, Green redshirt2014
- Hill / Olsen2015 - Hill / Green, Mangum redshirt2016 - Green /
Mangum2017 - Green / Mangum2018 - Mangum / Kafentzis2019 -
Mangum / KafentzisAlthough there is a chance Mangum could be the #2
in 2015 and be the starter in 2016.
I would have to agree with @Mildred in Fillmore. We have the perfect balance of
run and pass and most defensive backfields have a really hard time covering our
receivers. When Anai gets the plays going our offensive will be top 5 in
I'm sure that our offense would be just fine with whomever Bronco decides
to start.All of the BYU quarterbacks are better than most other
